MUTATOR Evo

MUTATOR Evo provides a combination of tools for creating unusual, weird, or downright wacky voices. With high-quality pitch shifting, throat modeling, pitch-tracking ring modulator-based “mutation,” and a mind-bending tempo-synced Alienization function, MUTATOR Evo is the perfect tool for unique special vocal effects and post-production sound design.

MUTATOR Evo

MUTATOR Evo's voice mangling tools are divided into three functional sections.

Voice Design Section

This section let's you use the unique vocal modeling technologies from Antares' THROAT Evo Vocal Designer to create the basic vocal characteristics of your voice.

Mutate Section
Having created your basic vocal characteristic with the Voice Design controls, the Mutate section let’s you turn that voice into a variety of, how shall we put it, alternative entities (i.e., weird creatures) by letting you select among 24 different varieties of "mutation" created via pitch-tracking ring modulation.

Alienize Section
Finally, the Alienize section lets you give your speech the quality of an alien language by chopping it up into small segments and playing each segment in reverse. You can create your own unique language by varying the length of the speech segments, or even syncing them to the tempo of your track.

Audio

All of the following examples (except the final one) use a single instance of MUTATOR Evo to process the same female vocal phrase.

The Unprocessed Vocal


Shifted Down


Pitch Shift and Throat Modeling

Shifted Up


Pitch Shift and Throat Modeling

Demonize


In this demo, we combine Pitch Shift, Throat Modeling, and one of the 24 varieties of Mutation to turn our vocalist into a demon.

Basic Alienization


Applying Alienization with a medium Dialect setting to the otherwise unaffected vocal.

Short Period Alienization


Another variety of Mutation and Dialect set to a shorter period, allowing more recognizable bits of the original phrase to come though.

Long Period Alienization


Yet another variety of Mutation with Dialect set to a much longer period, moving fully into the land of the weird.

Tempo-Synced Alienization


In this demo by Allen Papouban, MUTATOR Evo's Tempo-Synced Alienization function is used to sync the alienized vocal to the tempo of the song.

Automated Variation


All of MUTATOR Evo's various tools can be automated. Here we torture our vocal for the last time, varying pitch shift, throat models, mutation, processed/original mix and alienization.

My Life - Original


Singer/songwriter Hope Mayo's song in its original form so that you can clearly hear what MUTATOR Evo has done with it (plus, it's just a really nice song that deserves to be heard the way Hope intended).

My Life - Processed


Processed in real time with one instance of MUTATOR, using automation to vary the pitch shift, throat length and width, original and processed mix (to produce harmony), and even a little alienization.
