Sonivox has announced that their Vocalizer Pro, a Vocoder musical instrument announced earlier this year, is now available. Vocalizer Pro is the next-generation version of their Vocalizer MIDI-controlled audio effect.
The original Vocalizer is known for its ability to process any type of vocal, percussive or melodic audio track; Vocalizer Pro expands on these capabilities. Using SONiVOX’s Polaris spectral synthesis engine, Vocalizer Pro can transform any audio input “into a synthesizer,” for “deep and complex” musical results.
In addition to an expansion of available parameters and control, Vocalizer Pro now features two rows of “Snapshot Pads” designed for live performance control. One row allows multiple notes or harmonies to be stacked on each pad. The other row allows parameters to be switched to new values. These pads can be triggered instantaneously and can be assigned to any external MIDI keyboard or pad controller.
Sonivox Vocalizer Pro supports AU, VST, or RTAS formats, and is compatible with 32- or 64-bit Mac or Windows systems. The MSRP is $199.99 (USD). More information is available at the SoniVox website.
