We dive deeper into Synchro Arts’ powerful pitch-processing and audio-alignment software.

In Part 1 (http://sosm.ag/revoicept1) I took you through some Revoice Pro 3.2 basics: you should now be able to transfer audio between RP and your DAW, apply alignment and fake-double presets, and make simple tweaks to Doubler settings. This time, I’ll explore the pros and cons of DAW-sync’ed playback, explain how to edit pitch, time and level manually, and discuss making tweaks to your APT Processes settings. Again, you can find some videos on the SOS YouTube channel.

Sync’ed Playback

To set up RP to play back in sync with your DAW, fire up a DAW project and a fresh RP project (it’s not essential, but I recommend you use the template downloadable with last month’s article.) Don’t forget to make sure your RP project settings match those of your DAW — if you import audio before you do that, RP’s playback will lag behind your DAW’s and you’ll end up scratching your head, swearing angrily or otherwise wasting valuable minutes, before eventually deciding to start from scratch!

Transfer a vocal part into RP and apply a stereo Doubler preset, as we did last month, to give you one Guide, one Dub and one stereo Output. Now, ensure the little orange jack-plug icon (bottom right of the GUI) is lit; this diverts RP’s stereo mix to the Revoice Pro Monitor plug-in, speaking of which...

In your DAW project, create a new track and insert the Revoice Pro Monitor virtual instrument plug-in. Still in your DAW, mute whichever parts you transferred to RP (you don’t want the two versions playing simultaneously), and hit play. RP should play along with your DAW, with its audio signal appearing on the track on which you inserted the Monitor plug-in.

With the audio still playing (loop the section if you need to), switch from your DAW to RP using your OS’s standard Cmd+Tab (OS X) or Alt+Tab (Windows) command. You can use the mute and solo buttons on the Track Groups we set up last time to audition different combinations of Guide, Dub and Output. But if you’ve not used the template and haven’t set...
