I just looked at their web site.
Their examples are all from tape or cylinders, i.e., constant speed. I'm
interested in 78s.
This is a brureau only. I spoke with them at the ARSC meeting. Cost is
about $ 3,000 per hour. Perhaps this has changed.
Speaking for myself, though I expect it reflects the attitude of many on
this particular list, I want to own the thing, preferbly as a plug-in.
This may not be possible as yet. The process may not be streamlined enough
to simplify it sufficently to be marketed.
The Antares Auto-Tune plug-in is $ 320 and up, PC and Mac. It seem to work
with lead instruents and sung vocals. I've not tried it.
