Rephrase is a powerful phrase editing virtual instrument. No longer do you have to think of audio tracks as fixed blocks. Using Rephrase your audio tracks become instruments in their own right. Edit them directly as midi in your host application, or even play them live via midi.
At the core of Rephrase is a high quality resynthesis engine. The engine is the result of over a year’s research and development. It has been finely tuned to ensure sampler like quality is achieved, whilst allowing free control over pitch, time, volume, formant, partial tuning etc. The engine performs formant preservation, meaning audio files sound realistic, even when pitched up or down by a large amount.
The Windows VSTi version of Rephrase is scheduled for release in early November, and will cost $199 / €159 / £109.
A Macintosh version will follow in early 2005.
