New: Roland VT-4 Voice Transformer
It is easy to tell that electronic music vocalists are not the most-loved ones by music tech manufacturers. But Roland is trying to fill this gap and announces the updated version of its Aira VT-3 vocal transformer, the VT-4.
Roland VT-4 is an effect processor that can spice up your vocal performance or make a radical transformation of your voice characteristics – it’s all up to you considering all controls are at your fingertips. Device was clearly built by having live performing vocalists in mind – easy hands on controls, no push pedals and no need for complicated setup with a computer and plug-ins. 4 voice-altering effects (Robot, Megaphone, Vocoder, Harmony), pitch-shift, Auto-Pitch (for Auto-tune style vocal pitch correction) are controlled with 4 sliders, handful of buttons and couple of knobs. There’s also an adjustable Wet/Dry signal balance and 4 spatial effects available (REVERB, ECHO, TEMPO DELAY, DUB ECHO). All effects of VT-4 work on its own, but MIDI input allows you to hook up your MIDI keyboard for complete control of the vocal expression. Worth to mention that it also works as an audio interface and can be battery-powered making it easy to carry around.
