New: Live mode for use on stage, integration with iRig stomp I/O, expanded 2-track recorder, and general reliability improvements

VocaLive provides singers and vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects, along with a range of tools to help you practice, sing and record. The effects can be combined into a chain of 4 processors and saved as presets. A collection of 55 presets is included to get you up and running immediately.

VocaLive CS for iPhone comes with the Reverb effect, and upon registration the Double effect is unlocked. You can add 10 additional effects à la carte from a selection that includes Pitch Fix (for tuning or stylized FX), Choir, Morph, De-Esser, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter. Together these effects provide unparalleled creative processing power.

With VocaLive you can process your voice, sing along to any song in your iTunes Music library — its Voice Cancel feature lets you remove existing vocals — and warm up with helpful vocal warm-up tools.

Use the new 2-track recorder to sing over backing tracks, or expand the studio section (available via in-app purchase) to record whole songs.

With the optional Mic Room feature, VocaLive also gives you the sound and color of 20 classic and modern studio microphone emulations, for even more control over your vocal tone.

Ready to perform? VocaLive’s new Live Mode offers an optimized GUI specifically for live use. See your entire chain at a glance, with all the settings and controls you need in an easy-to-read format designed for the stage. Plus VocaLive offers an optional 4-track looper to easily create songs, harmonies and more on the fly.

For best quality, use VocaLive with IK’s iRig Mic range of microphones, from handheld to studio condenser mic. Or connect your favorite 3rd party mic using our iRig Pre interfaces. But you can also have fun with it and record quick ideas using the built-in microphone on your iPhone or earbuds.

Control your virtual rig just as easily as you would a traditional vocal multiFX with new iRig Stomp I/O integration, so you can change presets, control effects and more right from your feet. Or go wireless with iRig Blueboard, a wireless Bluetooth controller for basic control on the go.

VocaLive also supports Core Audio and Core MIDI so you can use any compatible third-party interface or MIDI controller, and Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible, letting you use it alongside your favorite recording or songwriting apps.

I just wish I can export what I recorded makes things so much easier -_-

Omg what did you do?!

I have been using this app since 2011. This is the free app, but I had purchased all the add-ons after I tried out the free app. All effects except the autotune. And I've been using it successfully and I loved it. The update with the full studio in 2014 created a very big problem with singing on more than one track--like if you wanted to double your voice the real way--which is the only way that I ever do it. Some kind of random muting would happen on any track that was not the track that you had selected to arm with you armed it or not (on every device--I have used different models of ipod, iphone, and ipad). I tried to get you to fix it and instead you put out this update that is for guys with a sh&tload of engineering experience! Why? The only people that used your app were people like me who just wanted to get their voice on a track that was already mixed. And now I have no idea how to use it and no matter what I do it sounds like sh&t. It won't blend (which it did beautifully before), it feeds back very easily and so you have to pull the high-end off and turn it down, the drop off on the built-in mic is miniscule (it used to sound great). I have no idea why you think that somebody is going to use your app who would use GarageBand or some other thing like ProTools. Nobody is going to do that! Now you've lost all chances of having people use your app because the guys who need full recording abilities are going to find problems and limitations with your app and that it is just not good enough for them. And the people like me, who need to be able to just plug in and go, can't use it because we're not engineers and you've made it ridiculously complicated! Now I've got to find something else to use, and now I got to give you a really crappy rating. And on every place that I've ever posted any of my songs, I've always told people what I use and how great and easy it was. And now I will go back and tell them not to use it and how horrible it is. I'm the one that contacted you about the problem with the random muting on tracks when trying to add a harmony or to double my voice if you'd like to know who this is. You could've just put this out as a completely separate app and marketed it to people who are looking for something complex and semi pro. This is no longer for singers! Change the name, because it is no longer strictly a vocal app.

SINGERS!! Do NOT use this. Do NOT download the free one. You won't have good results and you will find it very complicated and UNUSABLE unless you are a singer with a lot of engineering experience. And if someone leaves a good review, they are either lying, or they haven't actually tried it, or they're not just a singer--they have engineering experience. And they probably never used the original app. I, on the other hand, actually know what this app could do and I actually used it all the time and I actually used it for almost 5 years. So if you think for one second that I'm just being a whiner or complainer, I'm not, because this was the best thing that I had ever found. And now I have to find something else--and so should you.

I've just really had it with these app dev companies that are negligent when it comes to (not) explicitly stating what the free version does and doesn't do. In this case, the free version does literally nothing but demand payment to unlock features. It does nothing. Nothing. It's really just unethical so while I very well might have purchased otherwise as I am a pro musician who dabbles in iOS on the road composing, IK MultiMedia has lost the prospect of my business for failing to be dutiful to detail the limitations of the free app. Transparency, IK MultiMedia, not BS games.
