for alluring vocal tracks with just the right amount of sass.
Micro pitch-shifting has been around for decades and in that time, regardless of format (i.e. hardware or software) it’s functionality has remained largely the same. While some may invoke the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra, who says you can’t go ahead and make it better?
Well, nobody at Boz Digital, which is why ProVocative was created. Quick and easy to dial in, its high- and low-pass filters, width control, and wet/dry knobs let you add thickness or bring out the air in vocals without sounding robotic; subtly or aggressively widen guitars, synth pads, or drums; and mix wet and dry signal to taste. It’s light on the CPU and heavy on sound quality.
ProVocative—Cracking the Code
ProVocative is an inspired new version of the legendary micro pitch-shifter of days gone by (A hint to its identity lies within a joke we’ve heard at least, Hmm, 3000 times: Child, you so ugly, Even the tide wouldn’t take you out). While the hardware became ubiquitous in high-end and mid-level studios the world over, it was quite complicated to use.
As a result, two go-to presets emerged; 231, which became to go-to for vocal thickening, and 521, which combined micro pitch-shifting with slap delay, the standard for depth and widening. All but the most adventurous tweakers kept that ‘big bucks box’ dedicated to those effects (because who has time to read manuals and futz around while the clock is ticking).
In the studio, you want great results and you need them quickly, which is what ProVocative is all about.
The ability to apply a low and high pass filter to your micro pitched tracks has proven to be incredibly valuable. Take off a bit of the high and low end of your pitch-shifted tracks to get a nice smooth subtle widening.
ProVocative gives you intuitive wet and dry knobs so that you can blend them together however you want. If you prefer mix style blending, you can enable the link button, and the wet and dry knobs act as mix knobs instead.
