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.
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.
The Auto-Tune module can be set for any level of pitch correction, in a varitey of user-selectable scales. All settings can be recalled through presets on the front panel or through MIDI.
Balanced TRS input and outputs are located on the rear panel, including a Double Track out for simulating doubled vocals. A S/PDIF digital output is also provided.
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.
