Voix Vocoder

Utku Uzmen
★ iRig Mic App of the Week (July 15) ★

Voix is a vocoder for iPad that lets you play your voice like a synth. With Voix, your voice sounds like a singing robot.

For best results, use with headphones and an external mic. Voix works great with iRig Mic by IK Multimedia.

• Simple to use: just speak into the iPad mic while playing the onscreen keyboard
• Use external MIDI controllers to play the carrier synth (via In-App Purchase)
• Choose between analog-style 8-band vocoding or digital FFT vocoding
• Slide your finger across the ribbon controller for glissando effects
• Play up to 5 octaves with the Octave Up and Down buttons
• Play the vocoder like a regular sawtooth synth with the Bypass Vocoder button
• Record your performances, save them to your computer with iTunes or send them via e-mail
• Copy audio to other apps that support AudioPaste for further processing

PLEASE NOTE - Voix works in real-time using your iPad's mic and speaker -- you'll hear your voice transformed as you speak. As this can potentially cause a feedback loop, Voix employs feedback suppression by default, which may result in choppy sound. For best results, plug in headphones and then turn off the Prevent Feeback button.

MIDI control requires an iPad MIDI/USB interface or an ad hoc WiFi connection to a Mac or PC with Core MIDI support.

AudioCopyPaste requires one or more compatible apps. For a list of apps that support AudioCopyPaste, visit: http://www.sonomawireworks.com/iphone/mapi/#apps

WHAT IS A VOCODER? A vocoder transfers the spectral characteristics of one signal (your voice) to another signal (a synthesizer). Since the 70's, vocoders have been extensively used in electronic music (e.g. Kraftwerk) and sound design. The vocoder is distinct from other effects like Auto-Tune and may sound like anything from a metallic voice to a Cylon Centurion ("By your command!"), depending on the type of vocoder and settings used.
