You won't need to swallow a little computer to sound robotically awesome in Rock Band 3. Audio signal processing company iZotope, Inc. has announced that it's providing pitch correction technology to the music game, as initially revealed to Joystiq in an interview with Harmonix. The game will use iZotope's real-time pitch detection and correction to make you sound less like yourself and more like someone who can hit a damn note occasionally. And for those of you who are already vocally gifted, the use of vocal processing is optional.
This is the beginning of a new initiative for iZotope, who hopes to offer audio effect and processing middleware to more game developers, targeting the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms.
