I checked out Pitchometry for guitar. They got my money. I would have waited for a longer demo period, but they blasted noise every few minutes.
I have a need for an octave down while I play from the middle to high range lead on guitar. I started with a cheap plug-in that became thin on high notes. I next tried Waves Vocal Bender. It’s good on single lines and has a lot of character, but it’s feature-limited. Plays great on the high notes. Pitchometry kills the others by handling chords, being feature-rich, and sounding natural.
Frankly, Vocal Bender is the most interesting as an effect. It stands out, and if you play clean melodies, it works well. Pitchometry is almost too natural. It’s more of a “sound” than an “effect,” I’m blending dry and octave. To balance the two is sensitive. It’s so natural that it feels like a harmonic, rather than a second voice. Maybe I’ll need to add fuzz to the octave or something to get my effect.
The bottom line is that it handles chords, is natural, and controllable, so it’s sn ideal starting point. You can add effects to a great pitch effect, but you can’t make a clean voice from a bad pitch effect. And if you flub a line on an effect that handles chords, there will be no surprises. That’s good good insurance during a live performance.
This plug can to do much more than a simple octave doubler. We will see what more I will do with it…
