At Musicmesse 2012, BOSS has announced the VE-5 Vocal Performer, a compact personal effects processor and looper.
The VE-5 inherits effects from BOSS’ VE-20 Vocal Performer pedal, including reverb, delay, double/harmony, and dynamics processing. Also on board is realtime pitch correction and special effects processing via the TONE/SFX category. A built-in phrase looper lets users capture vocal performances with effects and loop them on the fly for exciting real-time presentations.
Reader André Redert sent word for Voice Synth, a new iPad/iPhone app that developers say lets you sound like a Lion, harmony choir, a Dalek, baby, Barry White, a guitar, a Japanese Koto, a thunderstorm and more.
See the tutorial demo and full specs below.
Voice Synth is $10, but is currently available for $4.99 in the App Store.
TC Helicon has this to say about the new VoiceLive Touch:
We are so crazy excited about announcing our latest creation VoiceLive Touch a mic-stand mountable vocal processor and looper. The success of VoiceLive 2 for the singing guitarists is ready to be matched for musicians who only sing, or play keyboard and sing, or play multiple instruments and sing. Then again, every singer is going to take their music in some new exotic direction with VoiceLive Touch because it premieres our new vocal performance looper VLOOP.
The VoiceLive Touch has a MSRP of $695 US MSRP / €470 ex.VAT.
Neptune is an advanced pitch adjuster, audio transposer and voice synth for Record 1.5.
Getting a vocal performance right means so much more than hitting the right notes at the right time. Sometimes you get that almost perfect performance with perfect feel and presence, but the singer might have missed a few notes. That’s when Neptune can save the day.
Sound a lot like AutoTune was a popular feature request. Read what Synthtopia readers want most from Reason 5 and Record 1.5.
