Instant Inspiration

Level up your composition skills with Octavox's unique time-based diatonic harmonizer technology. Octavox is an inspiring tool that takes any incoming tones—even drums—and outputs up to eight voices based on the chosen key and timing interval. Based on technology from our flagship H8000 hardware effects processor, Octavox will take your melodies and ideas to new heights. Stack harmonies, widen instruments and create innovative rhythmic sequences. Whether you are an electronic musician, singer/songwriter or guitarist, Octavox has got you covered with more than 70 presets to boost your creativity and productivity.

Taming the Octopus

Octavox controls have been designed in the most intuitive way, allowing you to quickly adjust parameters or type in values. Each of the eight voices can be independently manipulated by level, panning, delay time with feedback, and pitch, including the type of musical interval. The effect can even be sync’d to your DAW tempo for killer, melodic, rhythmic delays. Octavox has also been updated with expanded MIDI functionality. Each voice interval can be set via MIDI note, voice shift amount by MIDI Pitch Bend, and “Randomize” by MIDI Modulation Wheel.

This Plug-in is part of the Anthology X BundleEnsemble Badge

Features

Is it Live?

Octavox has always allowed you set harmony intervals and reproduce voices in the key and scale you're singing in.  Now new MIDI functionality allows you to change these intervals on the fly allowing you to add moving harmonies to your performance or recording.

8 Voices

Octavox Voices

Randomize function randomizes an amount of micro pitch shift resulting in simulation of natural character for each of the 8 voices.

New pitch-tracking "off" mode allows it to shine on polyphonic and rhythmic sounds. MixLock keeps the wet/dry mix of the effect static as you scroll through presets or user-defined snapshots. Key Lock does the same for the Key and Scale.

Reviews

Eventide’s Ensemble bundle excels in delivering next-gen effects and unique tones that are hard to find elsewhere.

My favorite application for Octavox is on the lead vocal track, as it can quickly change a mono vocal into a massive stereo vocal...a lackluster mono vocal will begin to seep into the outer bounds of the stereo field, inducing a three dimensional-like quality.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the plug-ins to the hardware they emulate. To be honest, I was not expecting them to be that close in sound, but I was in for a surprise...I was kind of blown away at how alike they sounded after trying several different settings on each processor.
