"Revoice Pro allows me to reference the pitch and pacing of a recorded piece of on-set dialog and then impress these timing and pitch features upon a dialog recording from another take or a clean wild line, void of troublesome distracting sounds."
"I use Revoice Pro to create double vocal parts and harmonies. It saves me lots of time and energy, which can be spent elsewhere."
Vocal and instrumental double tracks: Tighten the timing, pitch and vibrato of “stacked” tracks while keeping them natural-sounding.
Dialog replacement: Lip-sync dialogue (ADR) and vocals by the same or different performers, even when there are noisy guide tracks.
Transfer a performance: Change the inflection in dialog (ADR, voice-overs etc.) with the desired pattern changes provided by recording the director or dialog editor's voices.
Fix corrupted live vocal recordings: Replace and sync problematic vocals with clean retakes.
The user loads or transfers the Guide and Target (Dub) audio to be processed into the Revoice Pro program from DAWs or audio files. The Guide signal should have the "perfect" features: either timing, pitch or both.
However, if your Guide audio needs further time or pitch modifications, you can use Revoice Pro's new built-in Warp function to quickly and transparently adjust the Guide's (or lead harmony parts') timing and pitch.
In Revoice Pro, you can insert APT function blocks wherever you want them in dedicated "tracks" under each audio track that show where the processing starts and stops. You also chose the initial settings.
The APT process first determines the timing relationship between key features of the Guide and Target (Dub) audio signals using state-of-the-art pattern recognition algorithms based partly on Synchro Arts' VocALign technology.
Next, the APT process measures performance-related features (such as timing, pitch, vibrato and level) of both the "Guide" (which usually has certain preferred performance characteristics) and one or more Targets (Dub) signals.
User-selected Guide performance features are transferred to the Target audio to create a new Modified Target signal with the selected Guide features.
The transfer process usually includes the timing alignment, so Guide features are incorporated at precisely the correct places along the Target. However, this is an option.
If satisfactory, the processed Dub(s) can be instantly transferred back to the DAW via a number of methods including Revoice Pro Link plug-ins, drag & drop or copy & paste.
When José Luis Díaz found himself with location dialogue ruined by the sound of vehicle noise he turned to Revoice Pro to rescue the project.
“I had a take with some words ruined by the sound of moving vehicle noise. At first I tried to clean it with the top audio "cleaning" product but it was not possible. Then I searched in alternative takes and discovered one where those words were clean, but the reading was different and the pitch of the voice was too low. So it was not possible to simply replace the noisy words with the clean words. Nobody speaks in that gymnastic way.
I then tried Revoice Pro, and used the original noisy dialogue as the guide and words from the alternative take as the “dub”. After a few attempts I had clean location dialogue that had both matching time and pitch. This was not previously possible without Revoice Pro.”
The Doubler instantly creates natural-sounding mono and stereo double tracks - for voice and instruments
"I often use the doubler on vocals and even on instruments, like electric guitars. You can get some pretty cool effects with it"
"The automatic doubling process is saving me half a day per song!!"
"Doubling is the secret weapon for the modern pop and hip hop vocal sound, and Revoice Pro crushes in that area."
In Revoice Pro 4, manual Pitch and Time Warping of audio is intuitive, making it easy to select and manipulate timing and pitch whilst providing the highest audio quality. The controls allow selection over any range and cursor tool changes to show what will move. Automatic snap to pitch option, plus play loops and undo functions make adjustments fast and easy.
" I am getting the job done just as fast, if not faster than using the two most popular tuning programs with better results. I like the way your software tracks the performance and I don’t get the crappy artefacts I sometimes get with the other software"
"The interesting thing is the authenticity issue - pitch correction and all the issues and press that surround it. One authentic take and then just tune it a little bit rather than just putting it together and patching together this word and that word. Just because they're in tune, that's probably a less authentic version in my opinion. So in a way, ReVoice Pro can actually give a more authentic vocal.."
A powerful advantage of keeping time and pitch adjustments within Revoice Pro 4 is that any additional time and/or pitch changes to Guide or Input tracks will be passed automatically into the outputs of all processes using these inputs.
This means that dependant audio tracks will always be in time and in sync instantly.
There are now three new methods for manual Timing and Pitch Warping audio in Revoice Pro. However, the tools availble in all of these are operated similarly.
The quick-access cursor tool's function changes simply by moving the cursor position around the note selection blocks. This way, pitch traces can be shifted, squeezed, tilted and even inverted instantly by dragging the note-box sides or corners.
Time and level can be manipulated similarly and easily.
Moreover - there is a Correct Pitch function for a quick snap-to grid process which will automatically adjust a large proportion of out-of-tune notes to more acceptable tunings.
However, in any processing, the most important element is sound quality - which in Revoice Pro 4, remains natural and transparent for moderate changes.
For working with low or high pitched instruments or voices, the pitch processing ranges can be extended down to bass instrument ranges or up to flute ranges- to maintain the highest quality processing.
Revoice Pro does some things nothing else does. Because of this, we have had to make it work a little differently from anything else you'll have used.
However, we've done our best to make it work with your favourite DAWs and, once you understand a few basic concepts, you'll find it very easy and fast to use.
More importantly, even though have to move audio into and out of Revoice Pro - it will still save you hours of time and get your productions sounding how you want.
Revoice Pro has been deliberately developed as a stand-alone program, because there are significant speed and operational advantages over the restrictions of pure plug-in environments. These advantages include:
In Revoice Pro's installer, you get several Revoice Pro Link plug-ins as one type of option for conveniently getting audio into (and, for some DAWs, out of) Revoice Pro.
Some DAWs have better integration with Revoice Pro than others - but we are constantly trying to work with DAW manufacturers to improve the workflow experience.
Working method will depend on capabilities of DAW.
