IK Multimedia's app for vocalists provides extended features on the iPad 10/11/11
IK Multimedia has announced that VocaLive, the first professional performing and recording vocal processor for iOS, is now available as an even more powerful iPad app for download from the iTunes App Store. Here's what they have to say about it in their own words:
VocaLive for iPad takes an already powerful vocal processing app that has become a favourite on the iPhone® and iPod touch® and makes it even more powerful. The iPad version adds a fourth effect slot to the signal processing chain, and two of those effect slots can hold the specific "vocal effects" compared to just one vocal effect per chain on the iPhone version. The preset browser is also available in the main window of the interface making loading and saving VocaLive presets even easier. The Favourites section has been expanded from 4 to 40 in the iPad version utilizing a new bank button. Favourites put presets right in the bottom panel on large, accessible buttons for immediate loading of the artist's most-used settings.
For the best quality, VocaLive can be used on stage or any mobile studio location with IK's popular iRig MIC, the first handheld, quality condenser microphone for iPad designed for all mobile sound needs. The iRig MIC's Dual mini-jack connector allows real-time monitoring on headphones, speakers, mixers and PAs. VocaLive and iRig MIC together let the user make professional audio recordings and performances anywhere on the iPad.
VocaLive can also be used to record quick ideas using the built-in iPad mic or with earbuds that have a built-in mic.
The included audio recorder of VocaLive for iPad can be expanded to an extremely flexible 8-track mobile studio with easy-to-use volume, pan, insert effects and two send levels for each track along with a full-featured master effects section with with Reverb, Chorus and Delay for track sends, and a global parametric EQ and compressor for final mastering. You can use the handy "Apply FX" feature to subtly or radically change the sound of your recorded vocals and instruments without having to re-record them.
VocaLive provides vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects along with a capable recorder for studio quality sound in a portable package. The effects can be combined into a chain of four processors and saved as presets. A collection of 50 factory Presets is included to get you up and running immediately. User presets can be stored, and their number is limited only by the available memory of the iPad itself.
VocaLive includes 5 Vocal Effects - Pitch Fix (for tuning correction or stylized quantization FX), Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (an X-Y pitch and formant shifter that changes the tonal quality of the voice from subtle deepening to radical gender bending), De-Esser, and Double (Double effect gets unlocked by registering) - along with 7 Studio Effects - Reverb, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter - that together create the perfect vocal processing solution.
VocaLive provides the ability to sing along with favourite songs from the user's iTunes library (with a Voice Cancel feature for practising over songs with existing vocals) and also perform vocal warm-up exercises with the included Vocal Tools. VocaLive is an incredible professional vocal effects workstation that users can take anywhere.
