You can even use it to lengthen or shorten existing notes or to drag notes to new pitches, to create believable harmony parts. It is only a pity that you need to be a Powercore user to take advantage of it, as it is so useful in a variety of mixing applications. Over the years, I have refined my techniques with it, creating a useful 'starter for 10' preset and then automating the Manual Pitch and Smoothing to deal with the occasional notes that the preset doesn't sort out by itself. And, yes, it will howl like a wounded werewolf. Any changes you make will be stored automatically in the Setting you are using.

The default 'Type 1' is usually where I'll leave the plug-in set, because it allows you to produce musically natural results in a reasonably transparent manner. And if that's not enough, you can click the little switch at the side and access a further funky-looking page of virtual trimmers for even more control.
The distortion also has a pleasing, rounded quality that's sweeter than a lot of other plug-ins. There's a meter that shows how much enhancement is taking place as well as a large spectrum display that shows very clearly how much is being added and where. Can this simple plug-in make your vocals sound great? This revolutionary approach allows for instant gratification since you only have three very intuitive parameters to tweak. Well, we can't tell you which plug-ins you're going to like and use the most — but we can tell you which effect and processing plug-ins the team of expert Sound On Sound staff and contributors find themselves turning to again and again as they record, mix and generally make music, because we've asked them. Stereo sources come out well with no unwelcome change of image or phase issues. It seems that, when I go to master projects, there is nearly always one track on an album where using C4 on a particular channel has enabled us to improve the track far beyond what we would have been able to do without it. Moreover, with eight filter options for each of the eight bands, this is a wonderful tool for mastering where you need precise control over the entire frequency range, combined with a natural sound.
It can add clarity and focus without harshness, and is also capable of rounding out the mids and lows in a pleasing way. By default it's quite extreme, slamming and grunging up what you put through it. Mode focuses the enhancement on different aspects of the signal, where the three modes are optimised for percussive instruments and vocals, guitars and synths, and bass guitar and pads respectively. Everyone should have more Character. Source Distribution +44 0 208 962 5080.
That's normally where our eyebrows raise and we reach for the salt, but we're pleased to report that here it's actually true: this is a quite remarkable plug that does exactly what it claims to. You may want to check it out when it's native. Responding to a question about what plugin he uses to give his sounds more power, Hardwell says he uses the Noveltech Character Plugin.

It delays the crashing but it still crashes by some random seeds time64 and working time. This is from the Facebook Studio interview at Amsterdam Dance Event 2014. Also, if not used subtly, it is quite easy to overdo the processing and make your vocals sound unnaturally bright. The designers state that Character 'intelligently identifies and enhances characteristics in the instrument or vocal source which are pleasing to the human ear'. Apart from bog-standard single, dual and ping-pong delays, Echoboy also offers the ability to program highly complex rhythmic-style delays. It represents the relative position in the full frequency range of the input signal at the current time instant. Character Meter Measures the amount of characterization Presets There are 17 presets built into the main window.
It enhances the 'imperfections' of their voice - the things that make them sound like 'them' and that sounds weird to say but that's what I hear. And yet I love it. You can store new presets via your host software easily though. When I want loudness maximisation with maximum neutrality, this is the tool for the job. As well as enhancing the a cappella sound of your vocals, the processing also helps them to cut through in a mix; meaning you will usually need to add less additional compression to keep your vocals in the foreground. You can set it up to do one band or four bands and the quality and tone of the distortion is highly unusual and variable, especially when you bring the filtering into play. This revolutionary approach allows you to get to the desired results much faster - with almost instant gratification, requiring only three intuitive user parameters! I think you can download a fully functioning time limited demo.
Noveltech's Character is the exact opposite; the interface is a bit quirky and the parameters largely conceptual, to the point where you actually have little idea what you're doing most of the time. The download link was checked by a number of antivirus solutions and was found to be clean. It just sounds more 'right' than it did before. This ability to pitch-shift individual notes within a monophonic audio recording so transparently also makes Melodyne a powerful creative tool rather than just a corrective one. It's sort of an icing on the cake kind of thing. It's perfect, for instance, for smoothly chopping off the attack portion of a sound, which is really handy when you want to have a long delay that's prominent in the mix, because repeated transients tend to jar unless they're right on the beat.
Just to let other powercore users know. Although it is primarily designed for vocals, the plug-in can also work well on other instruments such as acoustic guitar or drum overheads. The front panel controls are very simple. I like to monitor through it during the later stages of a mix, so I can hear what it's doing. Retouch has done its stuff and the recording is rescued. I find I can get the desired sound very quickly and easily and I put this down to the combination of a good graphical display, the range of curves available, no limits on frequency range, and the way Waves have designed the sound.
