VocalSynth 2 is an immersive vocal experience that adapts and evolves with your unique style and opens up a world of new vocal possibilities.
Vocal Transform: Transform your vocals with the most unique plugin ever. Quickly get the vintage vocal sound you want, or create new wave vocals. Get lost in layers, textures, effects, blending and morphing in an experimental vocal playground and you’ll finally find you’ve discovered the secret that makes your vocals stand out. Choose and combine five unique vocal instruments or choose from hundreds of presets for a quick process.
Great Sound: VocalSynth has been reimagined to deliver better sound, faster than ever. Thanks to improvements in almost every aspect of the plugin, you won’t have a hard time finding your own unique sound no matter what genre you choose!
5 mixable, creative vocal modules:
BIOVOX: Create and manipulate your natural vocal data with the new vocal module. Using scientific modeling of the human vocal tract, tune human vocal characteristics such as nasality, vowel response, and formant to give smooth, textured vocal processing to any audio signal. Use surgery to adapt, better fit your imagination, or use it as a creative effect to make vocals more real, breathable, or completely distort them!
VOCODER: A classic “talking synthesizer”, Vocoder gives you the vocal sounds you know and love from famous recordings such as Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” Choose from 10 different presets and three different vocoder types, as well as fine-tuning with the Shift and Scale controls. You’ve never seen Vocoder with this flexibility!
COMPUVOX: Commonly known as the Speak & Spell effect, Compuvox can digitize, split, reprogram, or otherwise computerize the sound of your voice. By using it gently, you can add interesting sonic quality to your sound. By increasing the settings, you can change your sound to almost unrecognizable levels of digital chaos.
TALKBOX: Get the trendiest sounds with Talkbox, renowned by artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Who, Peter Frampton, Bon Jovi, Chromeo, Zapp and Roger (and many more). Talkboxes can be prohibitively difficult tools to master, but with VocalSynth, you can get that tight, classic tone at the touch of a button!
POLYVOX: polyphonic pitch shifter. Whether you want to create natural vocal harmonies reminiscent of a human choir, or the synchronized, grainy and computerized harmonies popularized by artists like Imogen Heap or even otherworldly sounds with shifted formants, the Polyvox voice generator is for you!
Effects: Enhance your vocal tracks further with a custom vocal effect chain. The VocalSynth 2 effects section now lets you reorder the modules!
Interactive Visualization: Experience colorful Anemone animations that move and grow with the shape of your audio signal. With advanced spectral analysis that reacts to the sound characteristic of vowels, Anemone associates animation with a unique audio signal measurement experience.
Plugin Integration: VocalSynth 2 works in the iZotope ecosystem of products through cross-platform communication. Like Neutron, Ozone and Tonal Balance Control, VocalSynth 2 provides seamless integration with essential tools for music production and analysis. VocalSynth 2 can be seen in Neutron 2’s Visual Mixer and Masking Meter, as well as Tonal Balance Control, allowing you to interact and receive real-time visual feedback.
3 Processing Methods: Three different modes allow you to interact with VocalSynth 2 in a way that suits your style. Helpful app setup guides tailored to your DAW make it easy for you to work and operate, so you can spend more time making creative decisions:
Auto: Match your vocals to key with real-time pitch correction, generate additional voices and harmonies, and seamlessly blend your module’s settings with VocalSynth’s intuitive control panel.
MIDI: Use MIDI to control pitch and effortlessly create custom vocal harmonies as you play… This replicates the experience of using a classic vocoder.
Side chain: Instead of using a synthesizer in VocalSynth, singing can be used as a carrier signal. This allows you to make any sounds “talk” or create new outlandish sounds that would not otherwise be possible.
