FREE VST/AU pitch editor and harmony generator: Vielklang 2 CM

zplane's Vielklang 2 CM is a totally exclusive, CM-branded edition of their Vielklang 2 Instant Harmony harmoniser plugin. Take a monophonic audio (or MIDI part), automatically detect what key it's in, and generate up to three harmonies to go with it, based on the detected key and scale.

The plugin also packs in advanced pitch correction, allowing you to edit the tuning and timing of audio material in a graphical manner. And with zplane being the DSP geniuses behind the elastique pitch/time processing used in tons of big-name software packages (Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio... the list goes on!), you know it's gonna sound absolutely top-notch. See it in action in our video, and get the plugin with issue 220 of Computer Music.
