Read on for some sneak peaks of VocalSynth 2's new features...
Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the key features coming in the second version...
A new module that models the physics and sounds of the human vocal tract. iZotope used scientific modeling of a human vocal tract to develop this brand new module so you can adjust human vocal characteristics like nasality, vowel shapes, and formants for a smooth, textural vocal treatment. Biovox is great for adding character, breathiness, and shape for a little secret something you can’t get anywhere else.
A stompbox playground
The effects section of VocalSynth 1 was a fan favourite. In version 2, iZotope have added a much-requested feature: the ability to drag and drop to reorder modules. They've also revamped Shred for a better experience and added two brand new effects: Chorus and Ring Mod: a ring modulator that doubles as a unique tremolo-like effect.
Overall sonic improvements
VocalSynth 1 marked a milestone in vocal production processing: the ability to blend and shape multiple iconic vocal effects in parallel and create something entirely new. Over time, iZotope heard from some users that they wanted deeper control of each module. For version 2, they've focused on improving sound quality and adding deeper control across the plug-in. With the addition of Advanced controls in all modules including including access to Vocoder band controls, per module Oscillator presets, and per module panning and filters, you’ll have a new depth of control for a better sound, faster than ever.
For existing Music Production Suite, O8N2, Ozone 8, or Neutron 2 customers, iZotope have added the ability to see VocalSynth 2 in Neutron 2’s Masking Meter and Visual Mixer as well as in Tonal Balance Control.
