There's also a plug in called Harmony. I can't remember it's from Avid or if it's on my TC Power Core.
I know that's not much help, but have a look at your plugs list for Harmony.

The main difference between female and male voices is the frequency ranges of the formants. Males tend to be lower. Any harmonization plug that allows you to manipulate formants would probably help, though results could sound a bit dodgy depending on how far you push the formant frequencies.

Guys
I have a similar question, but we sticking to the same gender. We have 60 seconds to go from a 5 year ols to an 85 year old. We recorded 5 voices ranging from you to old, and done A LOT. Of editing and minor pitch changing here and there, but we realy struggling with middle section, the changes is just too obvious. The cliemt is looking for absolute seamless. Any advice? I thought. One voice all the way through, but neither antares, waves, soundtoys, avid pitch pluggins do that with out too much artifacts?
Advice would be much appreciated
Thanks

Well, one thing that could help is if you can identify the formants for each one and adjust just those a bit (rather than just the pitch of the overall take), that might help them sound a bit more similar. That and having volume levels about equal through out. That's all I can think of without actually hearing them.

I pushed the client down the path of diffrent voices, so auditioned a bunch and ended up with 5 ranging from 8 to 60. We got the reading together, dropping etcetc and tried to match performances as much ad possible. So having eqd, pitched, edited, stretched, this and that. Some of the transitions worked realy realy well. Also i got the actors to try and 'age' themselves as they read.
But the client still hears some of the switch overs. So i thought if there is an AMAZING pitch pluggin that i havent come accross, i can leteraaly take 1 or 2 voices, and automate the pluggin. It will be seemlessnes vs performance.
Has any one done this sucessfully before?

You see, they look and a refrence of an animator morphing a baby into a grandpa, and want the audio to be as seemles as that
