About The Eventide Octavox
Level up your composition skills with Octavox’s unique time-based diatonic harmonizer technology.
Octavox’s uses unique time-based diatonic harmonizer technology. It 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.
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.
How Does The Eventide Octavox Work?
Based on technology from our flagship H8000 hardware effects processor, Octavox will take your melodies and ideas to new creative places. You can build up stacks of harmonies, widen instruments and bring unique and innovative rhythmic ideas to life. Octavox is packed with more than 70 presets to boost your creativity and productivity, whether you are a singer/songwriter or electronic musician.
Its intuitive controls allow 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.
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.
Why The Eventide Octavox Is Such A Big Deal...
With Octavox , you can stack sophisticated harmony vocals, add richness and depth to instruments, and much more. Check out these new features that make the plugin such must-have…
Live Functionality : 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 : 8-voice diatonic pitch shifter with panning, delay, detune and feedback to create beautiful harmonies and sequences. Randomize function randomizes an amount of micro pitch shift resulting in simulation of natural character for each of the 8 voices.
70+ presets : Whether you are an electronic musician, singer / songwriter, or guitarist, Octavox has got you covered with more than 70 presets to boost your creativity with unheard melodies and rhythms. Great on monophonic synths, guitar, and vocals.
Diatonic Pitch Shifter : 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.
Select Key And Scale : Unique Notation Grid presents pitches on a traditional music staff with a quantized grid for placing notes over time allowing for a more musical programming experience. Color and brightness indicate pan and level for each voice.
