Throat from Antares Audio Technologies is a plug-in tool that allows for processing a vocal through a meticulously crafted physical model of the human vocal tract. The software begins by neutralizing the effect of the original singer's vocal tract and then provides the ability to specify new characteristics of a modeled vocal tract, enabling you to design your own vocal sound.
The software controls allow the user to modify the voice's glottal waveform, as well as globally stretch, shorten, widen or constrict the modeled vocal tract. For even more detailed control, the graphical Throat Shaping display allows for individually adjusting the position and width of five points in the vocal tract model—from the vocal chords, through the throat, mouth, and lips.
Breathiness controls let the user add variable frequency noise to the model, resulting in a wide range of vocal effects. Also possible is pitch shifting the voice up or down an octave to create a range of alternative vocal characters.
Functioning as an Audio Units, AAX Native, or VST3 plug-in for macOS- or Windows-based audio software, Throat gives you control over the human voice to subtly enhance the quality of an existing voice or create dramatically unique vocal effects.
