The professional  app for vocalists provides extended features on the iPad

November 2011, Modena, Italy – IK Multimedia is proud  to announce that VocaLive™, the first professional performing and recording  vocal processor for iOS, is now available as an even more powerful iPad® app for  download from the iTunes App Store.

VocaLive for iPad takes an  already powerful vocal processing app that has become a favorite on the iPhone®  and iPod touch® and makes it even more powerful. The iPad version adds a  fourth effect slot to the signal processing chain, and two of those effect slots  can hold the specific “vocal effects” compared to just one vocal effect per  chain on the iPhone version. The preset browser is also available in the main  window of the interface making loading and saving VocaLive presets even easier.  The Favorites section has been expanded from 4 to 40 in the iPad version  utilizing a new bank button. Favorites put presets right in the bottom panel on  large, accessible buttons for immediate loading of the artist’s most-used  settings.

For the best quality, VocaLive can be used on stage or any  mobile studio location with IK’s popular iRig  MIC, the first handheld, quality condenser microphone for iPad  designed for all of mobile sound needs. The iRig MIC’s Dual mini-jack  connector allows real-time monitoring on headphones, speakers, mixers and PAs.  VocaLive and iRig MIC together let the user make professional audio recordings  and performances anywhere on the iPad.

VocaLive can also be used to record quick ideas using  the built-in iPad mic or with earbuds that have a built-in  mic.


The included  audio recorder of VocaLive for iPad can be expanded to an extremely flexible  8-track mobile studio with easy-to-use volume, pan, insert effects and two send  levels for each track along with a full-featured master effects section with  Reverb, Chorus and Delay for track sends, and a global parametric EQ and  compressor for final mastering. You can use the handy “Apply FX” feature to  subtly or radically change the sound of your recorded vocals and instruments  without having to re-record them.

VocaLive provides vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time  professional vocal effects along with a capable recorder for studio quality  sound in a portable package. The effects can be combined into a chain of four  processors and saved as presets. A collection of 50 factory Presets is included  to get you up and running immediately. User presets can be stored, and their  number is limited only by the available memory of the iPad  itself.

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

VocaLive provides the ability to sing along  with favorite songs from the user’s iTunes library (with a Voice Cancel feature  for practicing over songs with existing vocals) and also perform vocal warm-up  exercises with the included Vocal Tools. VocaLive is an incredible professional  vocal effects workstation that users can take anywhere.

With its 12  professional effects, Recorder and Vocal Tools, VocaLive is the most powerful  vocal processing tool available on the iPad!
