With Power Gig: Rise of the Six string arriving this Fall with a dedicated junior electric guitar, AirStrike drums and heavy talent like Eric Clapton, the team at Harmonix has to step up their game. Today iZotope announced that the Rock Band team has licensed their Pitch detection and Pitch shifting technology for the latest version of Rock Band.
The new software will let players really join the mix, when getting overly enthusiastic and singing well above the mic tolerance the game will voice code the and clean up the sound. While some may see the shift as cheap, it allows for a harmony when playing and makes allowance for anyone to sing in the game without feeling embarrassment.
I do hope that more details drop in so we know what RB3 is about this year.
