Leapfrog Audio has released Rephrase, a powerful phrase editing virtual instrument.
Using Rephrase, your audio tracks become instruments in their own right. Rephrase imports monophonic audio phrases and automatically splits them into notes for playback via MIDI. Export the MIDI into your host for editing and let Rephrase play it back with all your pitch, timing and phrasing changes.
Rephrase is powered by a resynthesis engine, allowing free control over pitch, time, volume, formant, partial tuning etc. Pitch changes in Rephrase use formant preservation, meaning phrases sound authentic up and down the scale.
The Windows VSTi version of Rephrase can now be purchased online directly from www.leapfrogaudio.com for $199 / Euro159 / £109. A free 14-day demo version and audio demos are also available from the website. A Macintosh version will follow in early 2005.
