Back when I reviewed the iRig Mic PRE, I used VocaLive to process the incoming audio. I found it to be a reasonably powerful app, but lacking some of the features found in the AmpliTube line-up of apps. Apparently IK Multimedia already knew that, since they have released a major updated to the Free and Full versions of the app>
Here are the details:
VocaLive for iPhone or iPad is a professional quality, real-time vocal effects processor for singers, songwriters and performers, for live performance on stage or in the studio. It features a suite of 12 professional vocal effects like reverb, delay and compression, and adds in more creative effects like morphing, pitch correction and harmonizing making it the most comprehensive full-featured vocal performance and recording studio app available.
New Features in VocaLive include:
MIDI Support: VocaLive 1.5 adds additional control functionality through Core MIDI support, allowing users to control knobs, buttons, presets and other assignable parameters with a standard MIDI controller and a MIDI interface for the device, like IK’s iRig MIDI interface. This feature is a free add-on for iRig MIDI owners, or available via in-app purchase.
Digital Audio Support: VocaLive now supports both mini-jack input devices like IK’s iRig Mic, iRig Mic Cast and the new iRig PRE via the device headphone jack, as well as 30-pin/Lightning digital audio interface devices, providing users total flexibility on stage, on the bus or in the studio.
Share: In addition to exporting via iTunes and email, VocaLive now provides file sharing via direct export to SoundCloud and FTP transfer so no matter where inspiration strikes, performances can be shared with the world.
Redesigned Recorder. VocaLive features a single-track recording studio expandable to 4 tracks (iPhone) or 8 tracks (iPad) with bounce, mixer and master effects section for capturing performances on the go. The new recorder section now includes a Loop function for looping sections of recorded material, a new visual Metronome and a quick access Tap Tempo button plus Copy/Paste function to quickly exchange audio material with other apps.
New Mixer Section. A new mixer interface has been added to the recorder allowing easier control of master reverb send, channel level, pan control, mute and solo buttons, plus an FX button for applying the VocaLivesignal chain to the recorded material on the individual channels. This feature also allows “re-effecting” of tracks to get that perfect mix of effects or to apply different creative techniques to the material post-recording.
If you already have VocaLive, chances are it has already updated for you. Otherwiseand check it out! The full version costs $19.99, or you can add effects to the free version for as low as $2.99 each.
