Antares Audio Technology introduces Auto-Tune Slice “The World’s Most Advanced Vocal Sampler” from Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner


Antares Audio Technology, creators of Auto-Tune, has introduced Auto-Tune Slice, a hybrid instrument that is both a precision sampler and flexible synthesizer, this features presets from the likes of Bon Iver and The National’s Aaron Dessner.


The company describes Auto-Tune Slice as “the world’s most advanced vocal sampler.” Auto-Tune Slice is optimized for vocals, but can also be used for beats, instruments, and other audio.


Auto-Tune Slice ships with more than 200 vocal samples and presets, created both by sound designers and artists/producers. More will be released in due course via a new platform called Samplescape.


Auto-Tune Slice turns samples into slices that automatically map to your MIDI controller. The application turns any sample into a playable instrument, enabling you to rearrange slices, create new phrases and patterns, and manipulate sounds with 14 built-in effects.


In addition, Auto-Tune Slice has “Auto-Tune baked into its DNA”. Direct Auto-Tune integration lets you tune your samples without ever leaving the Auto-Tune Slice environment. According to the developers, this – along with advanced transient detection – means that it can slice up vocals more accurately than traditional samplers.


Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) is full of praise for the new software, saying: “It lets me take something that’s only four seconds long and create a whole new song from it. Auto-Tune Slice has helped me create sounds I could never have imagined before.”


Aaron Dessner, meanwhile, reports that “I’ve already had really creative breakthroughs using Auto-Tune Slice. It’s a great tool for taking vocal tracks you already have and developing them into new hooks.”
