This virtual instrument is a crossover between a wavetable synthesizer and a granulating sample player specialized in generating vocal sounds. Pipa simulates the sound of human voices in a new way; instead of using ordinary samples or processing oscillators with formant filters, Pipa uses a large database of wavetables extracted from real vocal samples. The benefit of this technique is that it’s possible to seamlessly morph between those wavetables with proper phase alignment. This technique enables Pipa to continuously make transitions between pitch, formants and dynamics, which is very useful in a musical context.
* Features both male and female voices
* Continuous morphing between formants, dynamics and pitch
* Separate envelopes (with linked release time) and LFOs for formant, dynamics, gain and pitch
* Plenty of factory presets
* Two MIDI Assignable controllers (Ctrl1 and Ctrl2) for controlling formants, dynamics, pitch and gain
* Legato mode with control over both pitch glide time and velocity glide time
* Voice spatialization
* Room simulation (5 different rooms to choose from)
* Reverb (6 different algorithms to choose from)

Note that Pipa consumes quite some CPU - a modern iPad is highly recommended. Pipa is also only available as an AUv3 plugin to be used in an AUv3 compatible host application like Garageband, Cubasis, AUM or similar.

Good so far!
I like it so far! It’s on the right track. My only gripe is that there needs more voice range, and I’d like to be able to stay within the same voice on a keyboard rather than it changing every octave and going from the right voice type to suddenly a man.
Having different voices more common with various ethnicities/languages, strong, soft, robust, soulful, mousey, raspy, hoarse, etc. would make this perfect, along with larger range and the ability to add more vibrato by sliding up on the key to give it more control.
If there’s a way to do these already and I’m just missing it, please let me know where it is and how to use it lol
What would be really cool is if we could play a song or speak and it can adjust to that voice frequency and tone and learn new voices. It sounds too much like basic Caucasian church singers at the moment. Lol I want voices like soft spoken Japanese electronic pop girls and African RnB soul queens 🤣
Another really different Klevgrand synth...
Just very beautiful vocal type sounds, with some nice variability.
Glad I Bought This
“Natural Lead” jumpstarts every project with a convincing monophonic melodic line. Useful, good value, recommended.
