, writes a new article on Personal Tech featuring "Help For Singers", showcasing IK's VocaLive for iPhone and the iRig Mic. Here are quotes from the review:"VocaLive [$19.99 from iTunes] is a new app from IK Multimedia, a specialist in audio software and hardware that is based in Italy. VocaLive is filled with good features, but vocalists will find the sound effects most useful.""Twelve effects are available, including Pitch Fix, Choir, Morph, Reverb, Delay and Phazer. You can also import songs to sing along to or, if Karaoke is your thing, you can remove the vocals from a track and insert your voice. (Some of the original vocal will often remain.) A single-track recorder is included, and you can add a four-track recorder for $5.""You can also try VocaLive Free, which includes the "Reverb" and "Double" effects, as well as the singalong feature and the vocalist warm-up tool.
""But if you're serious about audio, VocaLive is worth considering, as is IK Multimedia's iRig Mic ($60 on www.IKMultimedia.com), a condenser microphone that plugs into an iPhone or iPad, and which delivers better sound than an internal mic."
