A modern-day version of the venerable talk box, ARTICULATOR Evo lets you extract the formant and amplitude information from a vocal (or other dynamic source) and apply it to any other audio track or to a built-in broadband noise generator. 

Perfect for talking guitars, singing synths, and a wide range of special effects (all without having to put a plastic tube in your mouth).

ARTICULATOR Evo

If you've ever seen a guitarist with a plastic tube in his or her mouth and their guitar sounding like it's talking, then you pretty much know what a talk box is. Antares' ARTICULATOR Evo is a modern day version of the talk box that lets lets you extract the formant and amplitude information from a vocal line and apply it to any other audio track. It lets you create talking guitars, singing synths, whispering voices, or a wide range of special effects.

ARTICULATOR Evo is unique among the AVOX plug-ins in that while every other AVOX plug-in is designed to process and affect a vocal track, ARTICULATOR Evo is designed to use a vocal track to control the processing of a second track, ideally a track with broadband harmonic content like a rich synth patch, a processed guitar, or the built-in noise generator (but typically not another vocal track). 

(The best way to understand what it does is to watch the accompanying video and/or listen to the audio demos in the next tab over.)

Audio

This demo begins with the extreme suck of the vocal control signal, clearly showing that neither vocal quality nor accurate pitch is required for an effective result. It's then followed by examples of that control signal used by ARTICULATOR Evo to process three different guitar sounds.

It's important to note that none of the vocal control signal is mixed into the musical examples. What you're hearing is entirely the result of ARTICULATOR Evo applying the control signal's formant and amplitude model to the guitar.
