Price €29 Contact Auburn Sounds

Graillon 2 is a live vocal changer plug-in with a silky smooth pitch shifter that has been fine-tuned for vocals and can be adjusted in fine increments from minus 12 to plus 12 semitones. Next to this is a Preserve Formant dial that aims to retain the vocal sound, although in practice, we found it occasionally resulted in some raspy artefacts. There’s also an incredibly flexible pitch-correction module with MIDI input, a bitcrusher, an output section with separate dry blend and wet/dry controls, and finally a unique-sounding pitch-tracking modulation section. This can be set to Ring Mod or Freq Shift and can be used to create complex overtones and cool octave robot voices. There is a little latency, but it’s low compared to other similar products. Although the pitch-shift dial is a little fiddly and it would have been nice to have semi-tone jumps, this is an incredibly fun and versatile plug-in for creating quirky and unusual vocal sounds and quickly transposing vocals in real-time. A useful addition to your sonic arsenal.

About MusicTech

We’re very excited to reveal our new-look issue, which is on sale from Thursday 19th October, and we’ve gone the extra mile to give you something really special. Building up the courage to share your tracks over the internet is one thing, but performing them live is something else entirely. That’s where our cover feature, From Studio To Stage comes in. With 7-pages of expert advice from Matin Delaney you’ll be gig-ready in no time. Elsewhere in the mag we chat with Emre Ramazanoglu, who’s body of work includes several 2017 movie soundtracks as well as some of the biggest pop releases in recent years. Additionally we present our 10 tips to speed up your computer (without buying a new one), a retrospective on the Roland SH-101 and 6 reasons to buy more gear (as if you needed any). This and so much more in the new-look issue of MusicTech magazine.
