TC-Helicon introduces the most technologically advanced voice-processing unit on the market today. VoicePro is designed to inspire creativity and save production time by allowing all aspects of a vocal performance to be altered once the talent has left the studio.
The perfect take just got better
VoicePro is the culmination of 15 years of research into re-defining the production of vocals. Combining a complete suite of voice optimized tools and effects with an application based user interface; VoicePro is your path to limitless vocal possibilities. VoicePro, the perfect take is just the beginning.
Producing the human voice
There is no debate. The human voice is recorded more than any other source. Whether for film post or chart-topping vocal hits, the human voice goes through the most scrutinizing production; the right mic, the right take, the right balance. Time and creativity spent on voice production is critical to the successful delivery of your message.
Appreciating the value of the human voice, TC-Helicon invested in real-world human voice research and the multitude of production processes it goes through. The culmination of this investment is VoicePro. All aspects of VoicePro’s innovative technologies have been designed to match the quality of vocal and speech production demanded in any medium where the human voice is heard.
Voice Optimized Tools and Effects
Depending on the application, there are countless devices used to shape and embellish the sound of the human voice. What separates VoicePro from any other device is its list of algorithms created specifically for manipulating the human voice. Including:
* Pitch: shift the voice using a transparent and versatile Hybrid ShiftingTM algorithm with 8 octave shift range.
* Time: creative and humanized control over time shifting using FlexTime™.
* Character: manipulate or enhance a voice’s character using VoiceModeling™ technology.
* Harmony: four voices of natural sounding intelligent harmony.
* Transducer: emulate the noise, bandwidth and distortion characterstics of phones, radios and megaphones.
- µMod: dial up an endless amount of the classic micro-shifted sounds including flange and chorus.
- Delay: the voice-optimzed delay includes input ducking and tap tempo.
- Reverb: using TC Electronic’s classic algorithms.
* EQ/Dynamics: standard filtering and leveling tools from TC Electronic’s arsenal of respected algorithms.
Application Based User Interface
Producing voices isn’t only about algorithms. It’s about your ideas. VoicePro’s interface is designed to assist you in creating your ideas. This is possible through VoicePro’s philosophy of browse-able application based presets. Because creativity is diverse, each preset offers top-level assignable parameters to fine-tune a sound. Navigating the efficiently designed interface makes creating all new presets an easy task.
Home: 250 user + 250 factory presets created by listening to vocals, dialog effects and the masters who create them.
Browser: Select your source and application to browse the best creative starting points.
Matrix: Presets become palettes through four top-level parameters and dedicated feature visualization assignable to each preset.
Professional Hardware Design
VoicePro offers 24/96 digital and analog I/O quality that rivals dedicated converter products. Tracking through your favorite mic-preamp into VoicePro’s analog input stage provides >110 dB (unweighted) dynamic range in conjunction with rock solid jitter rejection. Multiple output configurations are possible with stereo analog and 8 channel AES/EBU outputs.
