Roland VC-2 Vocal Designer
The human voice is the most expressive musical instrument of all, and it's also the most challenging to recreate digitally because of its complex variable-formant characteristics. Mission accomplished with the VC-2. The second offering in the V-Card Series turns the V-Synth, V-Synth XT*, and VariOS into an advanced vocal-modeling processor — from legacy vocoders to massive choir models with expression never before achieved in conventional voice-processing algorithms. Make your synth sing, howl, and growl like never before.
- Advanced vocal-modeling card
- Massive choirs from a single voice
- Classic vocoder models
- Sounds can be voice triggered
Build a Virtual Choir
Whether you need one voice or an amazingly authentic choir, the VC-2 can deliver the quality vocal backing you need. The VC-2's voice-processing modes allow the creation of realistic and expressive virtual vocals with words generated from your own voice. VC-2 is also equipped with Growl Modeling, which can turn the smoothest voice into audio sandpaper. The ultra high-resolution vocoder modeling imparts incredibly smooth synthetic backing that matches today's cutting-edge dance music, while the legacy vocoder models can provide the perfect dose of retro "robot voice" charm.
As with traditional vocoders, the VC-2 processes incoming audio (either from your vocals or other live audio input sources) along with the notes you play on the keyboard to create a custom performance. In addition, there are two other input methods in which to "play" your virtual vocals. The VC-2's Poly-Voice Keyboard mode allows vocal sounds to be played without audio input, or you can do the opposite with the VC-2's voice-to-synth converter, which contains an advanced pitch-detection algorithm that enables the modeled vocal sound to follow the pitch of your voice in real time — no keyboard playing required.
