4 global modulators - in each instance you can have up to 4 modulation full-featured LFO, that can modulate any parameter including other modulators. This way you can make the sound move in time, be less static and more interesting. Each modulator also features and envelope follower for maximum versatility.

MMultiBandHarmonizer by MeldaProduction is a unique multi-voice pitch shifting harmonizer. It is simple to use upon launching; yet, has a powerful advanced editing mode that allows the user to fine-tune harmonics in octaves, semitones, and cents. The interface is nicely arranged with a built in piano keyboard for tone selection, big knobs, meter, etc. Unfortunately, it's not very attractive. Still, MMBH makes experimenting fun, and with a little skill and ingenuity fantastic tracks are within reach. I added sub-harmonics to a few of my bland low-end tracks, and it really brought them to life. It also adds a new dimension to guitar leads, synths, orchestral by adding 3rds, 5ths, etc. When combined with modulation, the results can become hard to bypass.
Intuitive scalable GUI.
Edit mode for deep adjustments.
Chord generator and strumming.
Limiter to prevent unwanted spikes.
Sync to DAW or other host.
Price, especially if bought as part of the bundle.
Could use more useful vocal presets.
Need to use intelligently on vocals to preserve natural sound.
MMultiBandHarmonizer can help add a new dimension of perfectly tuned sonic material to recordings. It's a great tool for turning a thin lifeless synth or guitar track into something full and alive. Like other modulation effects, if used cleverly, it can work wonders on vocals by adding a subtle depth; however, if used recklessly it can create a chorus of demonic chipmunks. I highly recommend MMBH to any e-musician, producer, sound designer, DJ, etc., who is looking to add harmonic a refined depth to a track or an over-the-top special effect. Bang for the buck ratio is really good. I give MMultiBandHarmonizer two perfect octaves up.
