IK Multimedia releases VocaLive for IPad
IK Multimedia has released an iPad version of VocaLive, its professional vocal recording and audio processing app for the iOS platform. VocaLive for iPad expands on the capabilities offered in the iPhone and iPod touch version, adding a fourth effect slot to the signal processing chain and allowing two vocal effects per chain. The expanded iPad screen also allows the preset browser to be presented in the main window of the interface making it easier to load and save presets on the fly. The iPad version also expands the favourites section to 40 via a new bank button, placing presets in an easily accessible location in the bottom panel for easy loading of frequently used settings.
VocaLive can be used with any audio input source via the iPad headphone jack or even the built-in mic, but is optimized for the iRig Mic (iLounge Rating: B) which also adds the benefit of real-time output to headphones, speakers or mixing boards via a dual mini-jack connector. VocaLive for iPad includes an audio recorder that can be expanded to eight track recording, along with a master effects section with Reverb, Chorus and Delay, a global parametric EQ and compressor for final mastering and a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects that can be combined into a chain of four processors. 50 presets are included to get users started as well as five vocal effects for tuning, pitch and harmony adjustments and a voice cancellation feature for singing along with existing songs as backing tracks. VocaLive for iPad is available from the App Store in two versions: the full VocaLive for iPad ($20) includes all of the effects while VocaLive Free for iPad (free) allows users to purchase individual effects “a la carte” for $3-$5 each. The 8-Track Recorder is a separate $15 in-app purchase in either version.
