ProVocative—For alluring vocal tracks with just the right amount of sass
Micro pitch shifting is not a new effect. It is a trick that has been used for decades to thicken and widen vocals, synths and guitars (some people even use it on drums). So why did we make another one? Because we wanted one that was dead easy to use without sacrificing control.
ProVocative is so quick and easy to dial in. It’s also incredibly light on your CPU without sacrificing quality.
ProVocative—Just the Facts:
- Instant vocal, instrument, and track thickening
- Frequency-selectable micro pitch-shifting and width control
- Dual-function wet/dry mix or blend controls
- Easy to use without sacrificing versatility or control
- Uncompromising sound quality
- CPU resource-friendly
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.
ProVocative’s most unique addition to traditional pitch-shifting is its high- and low-pass filter section, which enables you to select the frequency range it applies micro-shifting to via slider. You can bypass or enable these filters by clicking on the HPF or LPF symbols.
These filters will only EQ the wet sound, leaving the dry sound unaffected. The main benefit of the filter section is that it enables to thicken or widen a specific frequency range while retaining an overall more natural sound—unless you want to go full robotic.
As its name suggests, width controls widening of the pitch-shifted tracks. When set to positive 100%, the pitch-shifted track is panned to the right, while negative 100% pans the track to the left. When set to 0%, both tracks are panned to the center.
The pitch control ranges from 1 to 20 cents. Once set, ProVocative makes two pitch-shifted tracks, one up and one down by the selected amount.
To create depth, this knob controls the delay between dry and pitch-shifted tracks. It ranges from 20ms to 150ms.
Note: Some slight modulations applied to the delay time in addition to the delay time set. This helps to give a more natural sound.
Like all Boz plug-ins, ProVocative comes with its own presets, shareable across formats, computers, and operating systems, along with an A/B bank that lets you compare settings without losing your settings.
