Voice Analyzer

Posted by Mikers On December - 20 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (9)Visualize your voice!!! Check and develop your Singer’s Formant and vibrato, the most important measures for every singer!!!

Voice Analyzer is a real-time spectrum and spectrogram analyzer. It gives you a visual representation of your voice. You can also analyze the sounds of musical instruments, identify spoken words phonetically, or picture the calls of different animals. Generally speaking, the power of the Voice Analyzer is enormous.

The spectrum of musical sound can be represented as a composition of harmonics. The frequency of the first harmonic is called the fundamental frequency. Higher harmonic frequencies are multiples of that frequency, but each has a different harmonic intensity. This builds a visual representation of sound quality.

The spectral peaks of harmonics that are observed on the sound spectrum of the voice are called formants. They determine the vowels’ quality and they have different formant frequencies for different vowels.

The Singer’s Formant is a tonal ‘ring’ produced by a singer. It is visible on the sound spectrum of trained singers (around 2500 to 3500 Hz). This formant is absent in speech or in the spectrum of untrained singers. Its frequency strongly depends on the voice type.


- Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)
- Spectrogram analyzer (color, black and white, fast response)
- Spectrum analyzer
- Zoom and pan
- Measure values
- Move back analysis (just tap on the spectrogram)
- PIP (picture-in-picture), allows the simultaneous analysis on the Spectrogram chart and Spectrum
- Audio input can be supplied via built-in microphone and an external microphone (via the headphone jack, USB audio interface or through the iPhone/iPad dock connector – many Core Audio compliant devices)
- Sharing charts (through mail, social networks, clipboard)
- Frequency scale: linear and logarithmic
- Amplitude scale: linear and logarithmic SPL/RMS (dBFS)
- FFT window sizes: 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384

Auto-Tune iOS

Posted by Mikers On December - 20 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (8)Auto-Tune iOS brings vocal pitch correction to live performance, using Antares’ world-class Auto-Tune® technology. Now Antares’ professional pitch correction recording studio technology is available for local performers to use live, on stage, on your iPhone / iPad.

Connect Auto-Tune iOS to your sound system between your microphone and your P.A. / speakers to use Auto-Tune iOS in a live performance setting. Use a microphone audio interface device to connect the 1/8 inch jack to your microphone line and the headphone output to your sound system. Turn on Audio Out on the Auto-Tune iOS app to get audio to pass through the system. If you turn on Audio Out without connecting to your sound system, you are likely to hear the internal feedback of the internal speaker to the internal mic. Adjust your mic and speakers so there is no feedback.

Vocals are corrected to the nearest pitch based on the key and scale of the song, or to a set of melody notes selected on the screen. Use the Chromatic scale when you don’t know what key or scale a song is in. This is the easiest way to correct your voice to the nearest pitch.

The meter visually indicates whether you are singing sharp or flat. The Retune speed is the time it takes for Auto-Tune to pitch correct your voice. The Normal Retune speed setting of 50 msecs gives a natural humanized pitch correction effect. This is appropriate for a moderate tempo song at about 120 bpm with eighth notes occurring every 250 msecs.

A funky or fast tempo tune, at say 240 bpm, requiring sixteenth note precision will have notes occurring every 62 msecs. The Fast Retune speed of 25 msecs is better for faster notes. For slow songs or ballads featuring long held notes, the Slow Retune speed of 75 msecs may provide a more natural sound.

In addition to natural sounding pitch correction, you can also apply the iconic Auto-Tune effect. This is done using the Retune Speed setting of 0. The Bypass button is provided as a quick way to stop and start adding the effect as you sing.

Auto-Tune iOS is Audiobus compatible, allowing Auto-Tune iOS to work with your other iOS music apps. Auto-Tune iOS acts as a filter in the “Effects” category, so you can apply pitch correction and the Auto-Tune effect to other Audiobus-compatible apps. (see http://audiob.us).

* Vocal real-time pitch correction designed for live performance
* Built with Antares Audio Technologies’ Auto-Tune® professional pitch correction
* Tested with Tascam iXZ and IK Multimedia’s iRig microphone audio interfaces.
* Made for musicians.

smartlav_iphone5RØDE Microphones has announced the release of the smartLav, a new lapel microphone that connects directly to the headset jack of Apple iOS devices. Compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, smartLav delivers premium quality audio capture in a compact and accessible form factor.


The smartLav is a professional-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of fi lm, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever professional quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment, particularly where multiple talent is involved. With the smartLav the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to the iOS device’s headset jack and records via the RØDE Rec or RØDE Rec LE apps.


By employing a high quality omni-directional condenser capsule the smartLav captures sound in a forgiving 360 degrees, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation.


“The smartLav is an exciting solution that makes professional quality audio available to anyone with access to an Apple iOS device,” explained Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Marketing and Sales Director. “For filmmakers or wedding videographers that have struggled to simultaneously record multiple talent this product truly is an incredibly simple and cost effective solution.”


A foam pop shield is included to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management. The smartLav has been designed to pair perfectly with the RØDE Rec app for Apple iOS devices, and is also compatible with any iOS audio app that accepts input from the headset connection. RØDE Rec turns the user’s iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation pre-sets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability

to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox directly from the app.


“Both the smartLav and the recently announced RØDE iXY stereo microphone showcase the possibilities of the RØDE Rec app as more than an isolated piece of software,” Mr Wilson explained, “but also as a platform and hub for a range of professional grade audio devices. This platform leverages the portability and popularity of Apple’s iOS devices to make content creation easier than ever.”


The smartLav is shipping to authorised RØDE retailers worldwide this month, at a suggested retail price of US$60. For more information please visit www.smartlav.com.

Harmony Voice

Posted by Mikers On September - 25 - 2012 ADD COMMENTS

Transform your voice into a choir with up to four voices !
Harmony Voice is a pitch shifter and harmonizer with professional features including automatic tuning correction.

A realtime visual intonation-display gives you feedback of the tunes you sing.

You can sing and Harmony voice will add up to four voices
according to the chords you play with the piano keyboard.

Instead of playing the chords yourself you can let Harmony Voice play the chords automatically to enrich the sound of your voice in a musically pleasant way.

The voice character can be adjusted in a way that you can turn a female voice into a male voice and the other way round.


• Four part realtime Harmonizer / Pitch corrector
• Different Harmonizer modes:

- Manual harmonization by playing chords with up to four notes while singing
- Automatic harmonization ( Kraehenbuehl )
- Play base note and Harmony Voice adds appropriate chords
- Directly play the tunes for up to four voices with the keyboard.

• Select key note and scale for harmonization and pitch correction.
• Harmonies can be in just ( Barbershop ) or tempered tuning.
• Mix your original voice with the harmonized parts.
• Change the voice character.
• Play background track from your iTunes library.
• Hi-end reverb effect for room simulation.
• Chorus and Delay effect.
• Use a CoreMIDI compatible Interface to control Harmony Voice with a MIDI Keyboard.
• Audio recorder with Metronome.
• Upload to SoundCloud and File Export.
• Audio pasteboard for exchange with other Apps

Headphones are required to avoid feedback. Headsets with mic work great, for best quality we recommend IK Multimedia’s iRig Mic.

- Whitney Houston
- Andrea Bocelli
- Babyface
- Sade
- Seal
- Usher

- Voice-building exercises play automatically with a simple touch of a button.

- Volume & pitch guides provide an effective visual aid in performing voice-building exercises in the correct pitch and volume.

- Over 20 voice-building sessions for both male and female singers and speakers. A setup wizard makes choosing the right voice-building session quick & easy.
