The Roland VT-4 Voice Transformer is the successor to the popular VT-3 model and comes with some great new features and effects.
The VT-3 model had 10 effects were on board, but with the Roland VT-4 there are now 20 different effects available, which are divided into 5 categories (robot, megaphone, vocoder, harmony, reverb). Each effect is accessible via a hands-on interface (however there is no-screen) where it’s possible to combine multiple effects in one instance. The VT-4 is especially exciting for singers or artists who would like to be creative with their voice so it can be utilized as voice Synthesizer, but importantly as an effect processor.
The VT-4 is an effect processor for the instrument inside us all—the human voice. And like the human voice, the VT-4 is easy to use, yet devastatingly effective. Whether you’re a solo electronic artist, DJ, or singer in a band, the VT-4 lets you craft and shape your own unique vocal sounds, from subtle augmentation to radical transformation. Everything is hands on, with no menu diving or programming to get in the way. Effects like harmonizing, vocoding, pitch shifting, hard tuning, and more are just a push, slide, or turn away. And with its compact size and five-hour battery life, you can use the VT-4 anywhere.
Today’s musical styles increasingly use unusual vocal sounds with heavy processing, making them stand out and grab the listener’s attention. With the VT-4, you have a wealth of modern and retro vocal effects at your fingertips, with no need to resort to a complicated setup with a computer and plug-ins. All the effects are top-notch, with everything from delay and reverb to mind-bending formant and vocoding effects. Better still, the VT-4’s performance-oriented interface lets you ride the controls while you sing to constantly alter the sound to suit the track and enhance the vibe of your performance.
