October 16, 2012 – IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music creation apps and accessories, announced today the release of VocaLive version 1.5, IK’s premium vocal effects processing app for iPhone/iPod touch or iPad. This major update includes enhanced control features, more intuitive Graphic User Interface and  functionality and expanded compatibility with hardware devices giving  performers even more versatility and options for virtually any singing/performance situation. Also compatible with IK’s iRig Mic, iRig PRE or iRig Mic Cast, VocaLive is the go-to mobile effects processor for vocal recording and performance.

VocaLive for iPhone or iPad is a professional quality, real-time vocal effects processor for singers, songwriters and performers, for live performance on stage or in the studio. It features a suite of 12 professional vocal effects like  reverb, delay and compression, and adds in more creative effects like morphing, pitch correction and harmonizing making it the most comprehensive full-featured vocal performance and recording  studio app available.

New Features in VocaLive include:
MIDI Support:  VocaLive 1.5 adds additional control functionality through Core MIDI support, allowing users to control knobs, buttons, presets and other assignable  parameters with a standard MIDI controller and a MIDI interface for the  device, like IK’s iRig MIDI interface. This feature is a free add-on for iRig MIDI owners, or available via in-app purchase.

Digital Audio Support: VocaLive now supports both mini-jack input devices like IK's iRig Mic, iRig Mic Cast and the new iRig PRE via the device headphone jack, as well as 30-pin/Lightning digital audio interface devices, providing users total flexibility on stage, on the bus or in the studio.

Share: In addition  to exporting via iTunes and email, VocaLive now provides file sharing via direct export to SoundCloud and FTP transfer so no matter where  inspiration strikes, performances can be shared with the world.

Redesigned Recorder. VocaLive features a single-track recording studio expandable to 4 tracks  (iPhone) or 8 tracks (iPad) with bounce, mixer and master effects  section for capturing performances on the go. The new recorder section  now includes a Loop function for looping sections of recorded material, a new visual Metronome and a quick access Tap  Tempo button plus Copy/Paste function to quickly exchange audio material  with other apps.

New Mixer section. A new  mixer interface has been added to the recorder allowing easier control  of master reverb send, channel level, pan control, mute and solo  buttons, plus an FX button for applying the VocaLive signal chain to the  recorded material on the individual channels. This feature also allows “re-effecting” of tracks to get that perfect  mix of effects or to apply different creative techniques to the material  post-recording.
