It’s kinda like a morph, but it’s really not that. It’s part dynamics tool and part vocoder, but you won’t use it for either of those things. It’s officially a modulation plugin, but that doesn’t even begin to explain what it actually does.
Envy is really a toolkit for generating unique new material, adding textures to real world recordings or mutilating sounds to create crazy sci-fi elements. It can fit a wind recording into a machine gun, add wood to foley feet, it can superimpose a drum pattern on a vacuum cleaner, or pitch dive a vocal 6 octaves just for kicks.
Envy lets you bend, warp, massage, shred and tear your signal in very subtle or horrifically extreme ways.
Envelopes for both pitch and amplitude are displayed in one place, so you can force bizarre sonic shapes onto unsuspecting noises.
Have you ever cut a scene and wished you'd used another layer before syncing up 300 hits?
Envy can turn a bunch of flat textures into a perfectly timed, totally natural sounding set of alternate layers.
It's like having an army of assistants cutting in sweeteners for you.
Character Vox can be incredibly challenging and chucking a bit of animal under a line is notoriously hit-and-miss.
But hit-and-miss is Envy's strong suit. Lay up a few continuous mammal files and take your pick from the eerily intelligible speaking creatures that emerge.
