Sonnox has released the VoxDoubler, its first plug-in from the new Toolbox range. Doubling vocals is an effective way of adding more contrast, drama and presence to the story of a song. The VoxDoubler is comprised of two separate plug-ins called Widen and Thicken which are bespoke engineered to help with the two most common vocal doubling workflows.
Widen generates two new mono voices and pans them to the left and right of the original vocal. It’s great for widening a mono performance, ranging from subtle enhancement to a stack of hard-panned voices.
Thicken generates a new stereo doubled voice and overlaps it with the original vocal. This is ideal for thickening a mono performance, emulating the effect of singing the same part twice.
- Humanise section to adjust the Timing and Pitch of the doubles relative to the original vocal
- Depth control to push the new doubled voices deeper into the mix
- Tone control to prevent sibilant doubles from becoming distracting, or to brighten those that are too muddy
- Track/Aux mode allows you to apply the effect in place or, for more advanced control, mix it in parallel on an aux return
The Toolbox range has been conceived to solve universally complex and time-consuming problems that affect beginners and audio professionals alike.
