Eventide has debuted its new MicroPitch Dual Voice Pitch Shifter plug-in.

The latest of the company's H9 series plug-ins, the MicroPitch is a pitch shifter that provides effects ranging from "subtle tone fattening to dramatic slap-back effects via longer delays."

Available for Mac and PC, the plug-in features two voices of pitch shifting, a classic stereo-spreading effect and the aforementioned long-delay-induced slapback effects. The two voices of pitch shifting are unison to -50 cents and unison to +50 cents, each with up to 2 seconds of delay.

Control-wise, tone, pitch mix, mod depth, rate and feedback are adjustable, while presets based on classic MicroPitch sounds (the effect dates back to the '70s) are also available.

The plug-in's Ribbon function allows users to “play” an effect in real time, and offers them the ability to morph back and forth between settings of their choice.

Desktop users can plug in a MIDI keyboard and control the Ribbon via a mod wheel, while the plug-in also supports VST, AAX and AU plugin protocols for compatibility with DAWs.

The Eventide MicroPitch Dual Voice Pitch Shifter plug-in is available now at a special discount of $39 until May 31. After that the plug-in will be available for $99.
