TC-Helicon has released version 1.2 of VoiceJam, a powerful iPhone, iPod and iPad app for creating music whilst on the move.
With an In-app purchase feature of the infamous HardTune pitch correction effect, and new core features including ‘Input meters’ and ‘Shots mode’, VoiceJam 1.2 is set to allow vocalists to loop, layer and record more exciting and more professional recordings. VoiceJam 1.2 uses the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch’s built-in microphone or any Apple certified external microphone to record and layer sound onto an evolving loop.
VoiceJam customers can add the HardTune pitch correction effect as an In-App purchase by touching the ‘info’ icon. The effect is an emulation of TC-Helicon’s VoiceTone C1 vocal stompbox. It allows everything from extreme auto pitch correction to more subtle tweaks to the singer’s pitch. There’s also a control for subtle to extreme gender-bending (male to female transformations and vice-versa).
Changes in VoiceJam v1.2
- ‘In-app’ purchase – enables vocalists to buy pro-quality vocal effects from TC-Helicon’s stompbox effect pedals range, starting with the C1 HardTune pitch correction effect.
- ‘Input metering’ – Singers can be sure they’re singing at ideal volume levels by watching the colour of the input waveform.
- ‘Shots mode’ – allows a vocalist to instantly re-trigger loops like samples on a drum pad.
- ‘Live Performance Flyover’ – includes the new loop mixer to non-destructively tweak the level of each loop, and offers other controls designed to aid customers during live performances.
- ‘SoundCloud’ – a new uncompressed SoundCloud option allows for high quality uncompressed recordings to be instantly uploaded and shared.
- ‘Share an idea’ – a link that gives vocalists the opportunity to share new feature ideas directly with TC-Helicon’s development team.
The VoiceJam version 1.2 upgrade is freely available to existing users. New users can download VoiceJam for $4.99 USD / £2.99 GBP / 3.99 EUR. The In-app purchase of C1 is $9.99 USD / £5.99 GBP / 7.99 EUR, but is 60% off until 15 May, 2011.
