yes they still make them... and, for what it's worth, they're a valuable
asset to have outboard of your digital system. if your workstation goes
down, most studios still rely on trusty old reel-to-reel machines, and yes,
the "dinosaur" harmonizers.
plus, i have to admit that the inboard devices are still not perfected to the
point where you can or cannot tell if a time-squeeze program was used...
you'll hear more of a warble effect if the attempt to compress is too great
for the system.
i've worked with both, inboard and outboard: definitely find the outboard
of course, i still have a yellow grease pencil, edit-all block, and two brand
new blades in my briefcase, just waitin' to cut tape if i have to...
