Waldorf Music has introduced Attack Drums – a software synth for iPad that they say is designed mainly for drum sounds, but that also can be used for everything else – including vocals.
Based on the Waldorf Attack VST PlugIn from 2001, it consists of a 24-part sound engine, now packed with a pattern sequencer and a versatile effects section.
One highlight of the effects section is the new Phrase Vocoder, a vocoder that uses written text instead of spoken words. Lyrics in – vocoded vocals out.
