iRig Mic + VocaLive: "A Powerful Little Set-up"

Harmony-Central's review of IK's iOS vocal apps and accessories


"iRig Mic is an intelligently-designed, portable solution for vocalists, presenters, and podcasters, and you can even press it into service for recording lectures, rehearsals, and the like. And, the effects that are available for iRig Mic take it into a whole other realm, as you can get very creative—and produced—vocal sounds... don’t underestimate what this powerful little setup can do."


Craig Anderton from Harmony-Central reviews IK's new accessories and apps for iOS vocalists, the iRig Mic, iRig Recorder and VocaLive. Here are some quotes from the review:

"iRig Mic is an intelligently-designed, portable solution for vocalists, presenters, and podcasters, and you can even press it into service for recording lectures, rehearsals, and the like. And, the effects that are available for iRig Mic take it into a whole other realm, as you can get very creative—and produced—vocal sounds."

"To go beyond reverb and doubling, there's the VocaLive full version for $19.95…this is a bargain—you get four more vocal effects (Pitch Fix, Choir, Morph, and De-Esser) and six additional "studio" effects (Delay, Compressor, Parametric EQ, Envelope Filter, Chorus, and Phazer)."

"About effects in VocaLive: "Choir; the name is kind of misleading in a way, because you might be expecting a chorus effect but this does a whole lot more—like generate three independent harmony lines, with pan and volume for each, and overall dry/wet control. You do need to tell it the key and scale (eight options); this isn't software that recognizes pitch. But it's surprisingly effective, and the quality of the harmony is much better, and more natural, than I would have expected. If you set the harmony to Unison, then you do indeed get a chorusing type of effect."

"iRig Mic is far better than I would have expected at this price. IK has tailored the effects to work well with the mic, and yes, you really could do gigs with it—and sound good doing so (check out these audio examples). Don't expect miracles - but conversely, don't underestimate what this powerful little setup can do."
