Polyvox is a voice generator that allows you to create vocal harmonies based on your vocal.

Voice generators come in all shapes and sizes but are based on a similar fundamental concept: sampling an incoming audio signal and then creating multiple additional versions of this audio signal using time/pitch stretching to achieve different intervals, such as an octave down, a third up, and so on. Voice generators are most commonly used on voice but there are many examples of this type of technology being used in guitar effects as well, usually some combination of pitch/whammy adjustment.
