VoiceLive 3: How do you use the HardTune parameters

Question

How do you use the HardTune parameters in the VoiceLive 3?

Answer

Gender - will shift the gender of the incoming vocal to make it sound thicker or thinner, as needed.

Key source - determines how the key information is derived.

Follow Harmony - follows the key from the harmony section
Manual/Custom - will shift the pitch manually and parallel to the original pitch. The 'shift' value shifts the pitch by semitone +/- 36 semitones. Customer will allow you to pitch the notes you choose you choose under 'manual scale'.
Robot Mode - re pitches all incoming notes to the note you have selected under 'shift'. This covers a range of 7 octaves.

Window - Specifies the maximum distance (above or below) in cents an out-of tune note can be from the closest correction note and still be corrected. A very small window setting will cause correction to occur only when the singer is singing very close to the correct pitch. The maximum window size is +/-600 cents .

Rate - Sets the responsiveness of the correction. 0% is slow, and 100% is fast. Settings of between 16% and 40% give the most transparent pitch correction. High settings can give you a robotic sounding effect.

Amount - Scales the amount of automatic correction applied to the input voice. The range is 0% to 100%. However, 0% does not mean that the correction is turned off. The amount of applied correction depends on how far out of tune the input note is. This allows for a very musical way of
correcting pitch. It corrects the large pitch errors while preserving the natural micro variations around the target pitch.

For example:

With the amount set to 100%, a 10 cent flat input will be corrected by 10 cents and a 50 cent flat input will be corrected by 50 cents. With the amount set to 80%, a 10 cent flat input will be corrected by approximately 5 cents and a 50 cent flat input will be corrected by approximately 40 cents.

With the amount set to 0%, a 10 cent flat input will not be corrected and a 50 cent flat input will be corrected by approximately 10 cents.
