AudioThing has released The Orb, a new formant / vowel filter effect plugin for Windows and MAC (VST, AU, and AAX format).
The Orb plugin features 3 band-pass filters capable of recreating the traits of the human voice. LFOs provide varied results.
The Orb plugin also offers several vocal sets, tailored to the characteristics of male, female and childish voices.
ZDF bandpass filters are used for sound shaping. Three LFOs are available for modulations. They are linked to the vowel selection as well as frequency and resonance values of the formants.
As a result, every sound should be equipped with characteristic features of the human voice.
If the prefabricated vowel sets are not sufficient, you can create your own variants.
- 3 Band Pass Filters (ZDF design)
- Vowel Sets: Male, Female, Child and Custom
- 3 LFOs (destinations: Vowel, Emphasis, and Drift)
- Formats: VST, AU, and AAX (32/64bit)
- Platforms: OSX, Windows
According to the manufacturer, the Windows and OSX plug-in sparingly uses CPU resources.
The Orb is now available at an introductory price of 39 EUR. The Orb plugin will work on both Windows and MAC hosted apps, being available in VST2, AU, or AAX 32-bit or 64-bit plugin format.
