I picked up an unrelated harmonizer in the meantime to practice vocal harmonizing. (I still plan to get an Eventide product). Using the practice unit, I learned that of all the 100's of harmonizing possibilities, the only one that I really need is the feature where I can sing in a mike, hold a swanky 8-voice jazz chord on a MIDI keyboard, and hear my singing harmonized to that chord.

Will the native version of Anthology II do this? If not, does an old Eventide H3000 hardware unit do this?  I read the Eventide H3000 manual, but is MIDI and Parameter Modulation chapter does not detail such capability. It only says "MIDI notes could be used to set the amount of pitch shift. ... See the chapter of Parameter Modulation." where it adds nothing more. (Is such MIDI-based pitch shifting monophonic? Polyphonic? Restricted to a scale? How many voices? Go guess.)

There is no native version of Anthology II at present.

Our hardware boxes will take in a MIDI note value and use this to shift your vocal. Sounds like this is what you need. Note that H3000 is obsolete and we can offer little support for it.

OK. Will the H3000 Factory plug-in do the MIDI value -> vocal pitch shifting, described in my previous post?

It probably will. When it is fully released I would suggest you download a demo version, to be sure. My lack of certainty here is based on the fact that I can't know exactly what you want, so best that you check it yourself.

Exactly what I want is to sing into a mike, play a 8-voice chord on a MIDI keyboard, and have my voice harmonized to those 8 notes by the Factory plugin.

Now, the Waves Morphoder claims to provide such a MIDI feature too, but this feature works only with certain DAWs, and my Ableton Live is not one of them. So I'm holding my fingers crossed that the Factory plugin will implement the feature correctly.

Hi Mr Delurk,

The H3000 Factory plug-in does not have 8 voices of pitch shift, so it will not do this.  The plug-in that may do what you're looking for is the Eventide Octavox, but we don't have a planned release date for that on native yet.

Hi Dayjob111,

We have not yet announced a planned release date for Factory.  However, work is ongoing and it will be released.

Thanks,

Dan

The weird thing is, having bought an actual hardware H3000 instead of waiting for the plugins any further, only one of this OS 1.53 unit's presets does MIDI-controlled pitch shifting, #211 Rock 'N' Roll. And even this preset does it only monophonically. Hmmm.

I tried to see what makes this preset work with MIDI unlike the others. No gratification around the Function key, the MIDI settings seems to be common to all H3000 presets.

So I moved on to the Parameter key, looked at various parameters of preset 211, what makes it MIDI pitch shift. I copied the likeliest culprit, the "Last note & PW = 7.0 Ch +0" value to other presets. Still no pitch shift by MIDI keys pressed on any other preset. Not even monophonically, let alone in polyphony.

I just don't get it. Doesn't H3000's pitch shift polyphonically by MIDI note at all? Is it a function of only later models, like the H3000D/SE, or H3500 or whatever? But they were called harmonizers since day one. I'm lost.

Status report: trying to upgrade the H3000 to D/SE to see if I get poly MIDI note pitch shifting bricked the box.

Not the best outcome, but this solves my question too. :) As they say, the lack of an answer is an answer too. Greetings Cool

Yes there is but I do find the upgrade price a bit steep. I have four plugins from the bundle but I still need to pay 399,00 dollars and this is just (even if it's hard work I won't deny that) a native port of the existing Anthology bundle II. Come on guys, look at the upgrade policy from Soundtoys that's more like it!!!

Hello!

I have Anthology II TDM which I use in Pro Tools 10 HD on my Mac Pro.

Can I use TDM plug-ins as before in Pro Tools 10 HD, if will buy upgrade to Anthology X ?

The idea is to work in Logic Pro X using Anthology X plug-ins and with TDM plug-ins from Anthology II when running ProTools HD system. Is it possible? 

Sincerely, Edward

Hi om-studio,

 

The best way to handle this is to upgrade to Anthology X and contact support@eventide.com to let them know your situation and we'll send you an NFR for Anthology II.
