Level up your composition skills with Octavox's unique time-based diatonic harmonizer technology. Octavox is an inspiring tool that takes any incoming tones—even drums—and outputs up to eight voices based on the chosen key and timing interval. Based on technology from our flagship H8000 hardware effects processor, Octavox will take your melodies and ideas to new heights. Stack harmonies, widen instruments, and create innovative rhythmic sequences. Whether you are an electronic musician, singer/songwriter, or guitarist, Octavox has got you covered with more than 70 presets to boost your creativity and productivity.
Taming the Octopus
Octavox controls have been designed in the most intuitive way, allowing you to quickly adjust parameters or type in values. Each of the eight voices can be independently manipulated by level, panning, delay time with feedback, and pitch, including the type of musical interval. The effect can even be synced to your DAW tempo for killer, melodic, rhythmic delays. Octavox has also been updated with expanded MIDI functionality. Each voice interval can be set via MIDI note, voice shift amount by MIDI Pitch Bend, and “Randomize” by MIDI Modulation Wheel.
Is it Live?
Octavox has always allowed you set harmony intervals and reproduce voices in the key and scale you're singing in. Now new MIDI functionality allows you to change these intervals on the fly allowing you to add moving harmonies to your performance or recording.
8-voice diatonic pitch shifter based on technology from Eventide’s flagship H8000 effects processor with panning, delay, detune, and feedback to create beautiful harmonies and sequences.
Randomize function randomizes an amount of micro pitch shift resulting in simulation of natural character for each of the 8 voices.
Whether you are an electronic musician, singer/songwriter, or guitarist, Octavox has got you covered with more than 70 presets to boost your creativity with unheard melodies and rhythms. Great on monophonic synths, guitar, and vocals.
