USER GUIDE

Features

SmartAlign NEW

Our new technology SmartAlign uses the presence of audio in your Dub track, instead of the Guide, to decide when an alignment should start and end. This is a huge timesaver as there’s no more need for any manual pre-editing, let SmartAlign do all the hard work for you.

Latest Audio Alignment Technology

VocAlign Ultra boasts our very latest alignment technology from our award-winning flagship software, Revoice Pro. This means you can align longer and complex vocal sections in seconds with unprecedented accuracy and ease, reducing the need for any manual editing and potentially saving hours of your time which can be spent on more creative tasks.

Tightness Control NEW

For complete creative freedom VocAlign Ultra features new tightness controls so you decide how much alignment you want to apply to your vocals. If super-tight isn’t sounding right, then just loosen the setting in VocAlign Ultra and more of the original double or harmony performance will be retained for a more natural result.

Match Pitch Section NEW

Before Ultra, VocAlign only aligned the timing of your performances but now you can tighten up pitch too. Don’t waste time tuning your doubles or backing vocals separately, once you’re happy with the tuning of your lead, VocAlign Ultra instantly applies your guide’s pitch to any other vocals that need to match.

60+ Alignment Presets NEW

Not sure which alignment settings to use? That’s no problem, VocAlign Ultra includes a variety of carefully designed and well labelled presets covering all the most common alignment scenarios, just make your choice and start aligning. You can also tweak and create your own presets which can be saved to use again in the future.

Enhanced Waveform & Pitch Displays NEW

To enable fast and easy visual inspection of alignment results, we’ve added two brand new displays in VocAlign Ultra. The first is a waveform display which shows your audio just how it would appear in your DAW. Secondly we have new view showing the pitch traces of your signals so you can easily see how they differ before and after processing.

Fully Resizable GUI NEW

We understand your screen real-estate is valuable so once you have decided on your settings, VocAlign Ultra can be reduced to down to a compact size just showing the key controls for operation. With a completely resizable GUI, VocAlign Ultra can be as big or as small as you need to be, depending on which controls you need to see.

Basic and Advanced Editing Panels NEW

In VocAlign Ultra you can toggle between basic and advanced editing modes depending on how deep you want to go when tweaking parameters. If you need to make quick and simple changes select basic but for more detailed adjustments just switch to advanced and more controls will be displayed.

Full ARA2 Integration With Compatible DAWs

ARA or Audio Random Access is a revolutionary audio plug-in extension that enables unprecedented instant communication between ARA-enabled plug-ins and DAWs. The huge time-saving benefit for VocAlign users is that real-time audio capture is no longer necessary as audio files can be instantly captured, updated and returned to your DAW.

Sync Points & Protected Areas

For complex alignment problems, VocAlign Ultra has a few handy advanced editing tools to fix your vocals fast. Sync Points are user-defined target points on your guide and dub tracks which VocALign will try to ensure remain in sync when processing. Protected Areas allow you to select a portion of your double or harmony which you don’t want VocAlign to process.

More Great Features in VocAlign Ultra….

Formant Shifting

The harmonic frequencies which naturally occur in the human voice are referred to as Formants. VocAlign Ultra can shift the formants of your performance to change its timbre without affecting the pitch. A very useful creative tool.

Two Activations With Every License NEW

Each purchase of VocAlign Ultra comes with two activations so you have more flexibility when it comes to using our software. For example if you have a studio computer and a laptop, both machines can now be activated using iLok.

All iLok Copy Protection options supported (no iLok USB dongle needed) NEW

With VocAlign Ultra you can store your license on your computer, your iLok USB key or in the iLok Cloud which enables you to login your iLok account from any location and access your license.
