Yamaha released three new Virtual Studio Technology (VST) plug-ins for specific audio applications: Pitch Fix, Vocal Rack and Final Master. The plugs are compatible with Windows (XP/2000/ME/98/98SE) and Mac (OS 9.x/X) formats.

Pitch Fix (pictured), the first implementation of Yamaha’s proprietary formant pitch correction and pitch-shifting technology, will operate with any VST/Audio Units–compatible software. This pitch-correction utility uses formant shifting to preserve the original signal’s quality without creating artifacts or distortion. Pitch Fix also features user scales, custom pitch-detecting algorithms, pitch-correct rate control and formant shifting.

Based on Yamaha’s algorithms, Vocal Rack is a VST/Audio Units plug-in that includes 20 presets using several processing tools, including a highpass filter, compressor, harmonic enhancer, 3-band EQ, de-esser, gate and delay.

Final Master is also a VST/Audio Unit plug-in based on Yamaha’s algorithms, and features a multiband compressor/limiter with adjustable frequency control, three soft clipping models and pre-seek look-ahead technology.

MSRPs for the plugs are: Pitch Fix, $299; Vocal Rack, $199; and Final Master, $199.
