NAMM 2020: Waves launches the OVox, a vocal processor and voice-controlled synth

    The company claims it will turn your voice into a "limitless musical playground".

    NAMM 2020: Waves has added a new vocal processor to its ever-expanding roster: the OVox Vocal ReSynthesis.

    The software, which can be used as a plug-in or standalone app, is a voice-controlled synth and vocal effects processor. Vocal morphing, harmonising, arpeggiating and pitch-shifting are among the many effects the OVox provides.

    Six more typical effects – auto pan, chorus, comp, delay, distortion and reverb – give you even more room for creativity, as does an in-built eight-voice synth that, Waves claims, can turn your voice into a “limitless musical playground”.

    The OVox’s touted clarity and depth is the result of Waves’ Organic ReSynthesis (ORS) technology. This takes the original vocal line and separates its core elements of amplitude, pitch and formant. The ORS then re-synthesises them into the effected vocal sound.

    An Expanded View brings up even more fine-tuning control. This includes nine LFO, ADSR and ORS modulators can modulate any other control or effect in the plugin.

    The OVox is MIDI compatible, and a feature called Note Mapper lets you use your voice to automatically trigger chords or melodies.
