Sonivox announces Vocalizer Pro vocal production synthesizer + Updates 5 virtual instruments

Sonivox has announced Vocalizer Pro Vocal Production Synthesizer, the next-generation version of the amazing Vocalizer MIDI-controlled audio effect.

Sonivox Vocalizer Pro
Sonivox Vocalizer Pro Vocoder Musical Instrument for PC and Mac.

Vocalizer Pro brings a harmonic/melodic voice to any audio input, thus vocalizing the sound. Simply singing or speaking—or any type of vocalizing—can intuitively create deep and complex musical results. The patented technology delivers unparalleled signal processing, advanced vocoding, and powerful re-synthesis. In addition, Vocalizer Pro allows the creation of simple or complex vocal harmonies that can extend far beyond the natural limitations of the voice. Vocalizer Pro is excellent for processing any type of percussive or melodic audio track. One preset has the ability of producing thousands of different results. This is because Vocalizer Pro is not just for vocals.

“I’m more excited about what the end user is going to do with this, because I know what I can do with it,” according to Jason Jordan, Head of Soundware, Sonivox. “I can’t even fathom what someone else is going to come up with. The sheer number of sound design possibilities is near infinite.”

Vocalizer Pro features

  • Revolutionary MIDI-controlled audio effect.

Soundiron releases Ambius 2: Systematik + Deals on drum & piano libraries

Soundiron has announced the release of Ambius 2: Systematik, a 4.9GB beast of an organic synth collection built on adaptive groove-building and inspiring tone and texture shaping features.

Soundiron Ambius 2 Systematik
The foundation of Ambius 2 is Soundiron’s Instrument Designer system, which allows you to combine a range of tuned percussive attack samples with a broad variety of richly detailed sustaining pads and leads.

Ambius 2: Systematik represents a huge new step forward in our quest to build a truly flexible and adaptive sample based atmospheric synth.

We wanted a broad collection of richly nuanced flavors with the ability to freely layer, blend and reshape a wide mix of percussive, tonal and textural elements into custom multi-layered dynamic and evolving instruments. We wanted a unified and powerful interface to combine detailed performance and tone shaping controls with a wide pallet of experimental and environmental convolution effects. We wanted a built-in tempo-locking step-sequenced filter and LFO engine that could be adapted to just about any other GUI control parameter on the fly without missing a beat. Ambius 2 is all of that and much more.

To celebrate the release of Ambius 2 Systematik, Soundiron is offering a $30 discount on the price and offering some amazing deals on Apocalypse Percussion, Cymbology, The Struck Grand and our Montclarion Hall Steinway until December 21st, 2012.
