I like the pivot point a lot, but as you say, it could be easier to use. So it’s a +1 for some easier editing here!!
And I actually find it much the best feature of Variaudio, and way easier to use than Melodyne for quickly getting a natural controllable slide into tricky notes!! Mind you I haven’t been working on vocals for a little while so Melodyne may have improved their working method since.
I tried the Graphical Mode of Autotune but it was a nightmare for me so I only use the auto mode for pre-production, BVs, and for input into Melodyne on a relaxed setting to save me some time later…
One thing I always had trouble with on Variaudio is that the pitch line between identified notes would end up with spikes in it unless I manually adjusted the edges and pivot point. I could never see why anyone would ever want an audible spike in their tune, perhaps this is sorted in the latest 706 version I wonder… I will find out soon enough because I have a whole live gig to work on right now
