The only hardware processor with Auto-Tune technology for flawless vocal intonation
The TASCAM TA-1VP vocal processor was co-developed with Antares Audio Technologies to bring together everything you need for a polished, modern vocal sound, in the studio or live. The rackmount processor includes a microphone preamp, compression, de-essing, microphone & tube modeling and Antares’ world-famous Auto-Tune™ pitch correction. Whether you want gentle, transparent pitch correction or the full-strength effect that’s required for pop or hip hop vocals, the TA-1VP delivers this sound for you on stage. Perfect for live performance, house of worship or studio use, the TA-1VP brings your vocal sound into the 21st century.
Equipped with Auto-Tune Evo real-time pitch correction function by Antares
The TA-1VP can output the perfect pitch of entered audio by first correcting it using the installed Antares’ Auto-Tune Evo, autotune software widely used in recording.
Another feature is the widely-praised TEC Awards-winning Antares’ microphone modeler. In addition, sound inputted into a dynamic microphone can be changed to match the acoustic characteristics of a condenser microphone.
Furthermore, the tube modeling gives the option of adding warmth characteristics to a vacuum tube.
Simple-to-use interface and key layout
A high-quality XLR microphone input is provided on the TA-1VP front panel, with phantom power for condenser Mics. Processing is laid out in simple-to-use blocks on the front panel, each with dedicated buttons and meters to show you exactly what’s being done to the signal. Antares’ microphone and tube modeling takes the input signal and gives it the character of another microphone, with a library of classics to choose from.
The De-essing module removes sibilance from your signal before variable-knee compression and gating. A great-sounding digital EQ is last in the chain before output.
High-quality microphone amplifier and diverse effectors for professional sounds
The microphone amplifier circuit is at an equivalent level to the TASCAM professional digital mixing console, the DM-4800/3200. In addition, the TA-1VP is equipped with a bypass filter, compressor, gate, de-esser, and equalizer, that all prove to be helpful during vocal processing.
The simple operation of setting parameters for each device and turning dials allows users to create professional-level sounds.
The TA-1VP is a must-have processor for vocalists, as it can be applied to a wide range of applications from vocal processing during live concerts and as a microphone amplifier when recording at one’s home.
