Posted by Mikers On November - 10 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Following the release of the original iPhone/Touch version back in March, IK Multimedia has rejigged the UI and added a few nice tweaks for the iPad version of it’s dedicated vocal processing and recording app, VocaLive. Read on for the official details –


VocaLive provides singers and vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects along with a capable recorder for studio-quality sound in a portable package.

VocaLive for iPad includes 5 Vocal Effects – Pitch Fix (for tuning correction or stylized quantization FX), Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (a formant shifter to change the tonal quality of the voice from subtle deepening to radical gender bending) and Double (by registering) – along with 7 Studio Effects – De-Esser, Reverb, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter – that together create the perfect vocal processing solution.

VocaLive is an incredible professional vocal effects workstation that you can take with you anywhere.

For the best quality, use VocaLive on stage with IK’s iRig Mic. You can also have fun with it or record quick ideas using the built-in iPad mic, or you can use VocaLive with earbuds that have a built-in mic.

Joining developer, Procypher Software’s lengthy list of iOS apps, is this bold (and pricey) move into the DAW space.
