Sonivox has announced the release of Vocalizer Pro, the next-generation version of the Vocalizer MIDI-controlled audio effect.
Vocalizer Pro is ready to harmonize, modify, fortify, enhance, and re-synthesize any instrument—or any sound—in ways you never thought possible.
The original Vocalizer is widely renown for the ability to creatively process any type of percussive or melodic audio track. With Vocalizer Pro, this capability has been greatly expanded.
Using their Polaris spectral synthesis engine, the SONiVOX Vocalizer Pro can transform any audio input to generate 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 intricate vocal harmonies that can extend far beyond the natural limitations of the voice. One preset has the ability of producing thousands of different results—depending on the audio source.
In addition to the massive expansion of available parameters and control, Vocalizer Pro now features two rows of Parameter Snapshot Pads designed for unique live performance control. One row allows multiple notes or harmonies to be stacked on each pad. The other row allows parameters to be switched to new values. Snapshots provide instant switching of parameter controls, which can be triggered with the pads. These pads can also be mapped to provide access from any MIDI controller.
