Eventide has released the MicroPitch dual-voice pitch shifter plug-in, bringing the latest incarnation of an effect originated by Eventide in the 1970s to Mac and PC.

Eventide MicroPitchEach subsequent release has expanded, refined, enhanced this fine-resolution pitch shifter, providing effects that range from subtle tone fattening to dramatic slap-back effects via longer delays. MicroPitch builds on familiar stereo spread effects offered by simple micropitch plug-ins, allowing detuned and delayed versions of a source, creating depth and dimensions not previously possible. Extended controls allow deep pitch dives, haunting echoes and pristine chorusing.

Like Eventide’s other H9 series plug-ins, the company says that MicroPitch is ‘designed to play’. The dynamic and ‘ribbon’ control can add ‘life’ while mixing by sweeping MicroPitch’s effect between two completely different settings of any combination of controls, such as turning sweetening shifts into a delay-throw and back, or changing delays from dark to bright for transitional effects. Desktop users can plug in a MIDI keyboard and gain control of the ribbon via the mod wheel for tactile control of this intuitive performance macro.

The plug-in has also been enhanced for experimentation and live performance and fine-tuned for desktop, laptop or iPad. It promises much more tweakability than simple pitch shifting plug-ins and includes presets based on uses of the MicroPitch effect.

MicroPitch features two voices of pitch shifting, one from unison to -50 cents, the other from unison to +50 cents, each with up to 2s of delay. The plug-in can produce a classic stereo-spreading effect, a chorusing effect on each voice by means of Modulation Depth and Rate controls, and slapback effects by means of longer delay times, and it can create pitch dive or rise effects by Feedback adjustment. The Mix Lock toggle maintains a wet-dry mix constant while scrolling through the rich complement of presets, while the Pitch Mix allows layering of voices by setting the balance between each shifted delay. The Tempo function allows synchronised delay effects.

Joining the iOS version of the app (which works standalone, AudioUnit v3 plug-in or Inter-App Audio), MicroPitch for Mac and PC supports VST, AAX and AU plug-in protocols for compatibility with all DAW platforms.
