Yamaha released Virtual Studio Technology (VST) plug-ins for specific audio applications. Three plug-in modules are currently available and are compatible for Windows (XP/2000/ME/98/98SE) and Mac (OS 9.x/X) formats.

"There has been explosive growth in the areas of hard disk recording systems and computer-based audio editors," commented Mike Martin, marketing manager at Yamaha Digital Musical Instruments. "These plug-ins allow users of those technologies to use Yamaha's digital processing technology to make precise adjustments, add sweetening or simply enhance their audio.”

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

Vocal Rack, a VST/AU plug-in, includes 20 presets using several valuable processing tools specifically designed for vocal processing, including a highpass filter, compressor, harmonic enhancer, 3-band EQ, de-esser, gate and delay.

Final Master is a VST/AU plug-in based on Yamaha's compression algorithms and delivers the tools needed for audio mastering. Features include a multiband compressor/limiter with adjustable frequency control, three soft-clipping models and pre-seek look-ahead technology.
