It’s that time again. We have a new plugin just about ready for release, and we need your help in naming it.
How to Play
Just leave a comment on this page with your name suggestions. You can leave as many comments as you like, and you can submit as many names in a single comment as you like. I will pick a name, and whoever suggested the name first gets a free copy when the plugin is released.
This Contest Ended
Thank you for participating. We are now in the process of picking a name.
- You can have conversations through replies, but please have conversations through replies to existing comments only. Leave root level comments for name submissions only. We’ll remove any conversational posts that aren’t replies. It’s not that we don’t like you, it’s just that we need to keep in clean.
- Do not edit your posts. If you messed up and need to change a submission, just make a new post. In the case where multiple people suggest a name, I will be choosing the first to submit the name. If you edit your post, you will lose the tie breaker.
- No whining. This is meant to be fun. If you don’t like the winning name, don’t send me an email about how the name shouldn’t have won.
About the plugin
[Voxy Woxy] was born out of some frustration. After making Imperial Delay, I found myself always using the subtle pitch shifting function and a short delay. The sound was there, but I found it a little hard to dial in. I finally said “Screw it, I’m making a plugin that does this one trick and makes it really easy to dial in.” Thus was born [Voxy Lady].
You know that trick where you take your vocal track and you give it a subtle pitch shift up, another subtle pitch shift down and blend it with the original vocal to thicken it up. This plugin makes it really, really easy to do that. It can provide anything from subtle thickness to a doubling effect. I can’t imagine doing a vocal track without some of this effect on it. It just makes everything sound better.
To add to that, I found that one of the most useful features that make this effect even more useful, that for some reason seems to be missing from other plugins that do this effect, is a simple high pass and low pass filter. In fact, I find that being very aggressive with the HPF and LPF, giving just some doubling in the meat of the vocal range, gives some instant satisfaction to pretty much any vocal track. Yum.
Anyway, here’s a video that shows how I like to use it.
