6 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade To VocAlign Ultra
If you already use either VocAlign Project or Pro, you've probably been wandering what all the fuss is about with VocAlign Ultra and is it worth upgrading. Put simply, we feel that VocAlign Ultra is a huge step forward from older VocAligns and to help with your decision, here's six simple reasons why should upgrade to VocAlign Ultra from a previous VocAlign version.
1) You get a better alignment algorithm
Both VocAlign Project and Pro are powered by older alignment technologies whereas VocAlign Ultra boasts the very latest alignment algorithms from our award-winning flagship software, Revoice Pro. This means you can align longer and more complex vocal sections in VocAlign Ultra with more speed and accuracy than before. This should reduce the need for any kind of manual editing, saving you even more time in the studio.
2) VocAlign Ultra has a tightness control
Before VocAlign Ultra, previous versions of VocAlign always tried to align your signals as tightly as possible with no exceptions, all or nothing. With VocAlign Ultra we have introduced a new tightness control so you decide how much alignment you want to apply to your vocals. If super-tight isn’t sounding right, then just loosen the setting in VocAlign Ultra and more of the original double or harmony performance will be retained for a more natural and transparent result.
3) You can match pitch with VocAlign Ultra
If you have VocAlign Project or Pro you'll know that before Ultra, VocAlign was focused entirely on matching the timing of your performances. That's no longer the case with VocAlign Ultra which boasts a brand new 'Match Pitch' feature with two separate pitch alignment algorithms. Don't spend time tuning doubles or backing vocals separately, once you're happy with the tuning of your lead, VocAlign Ultra instantly applies your guide’s pitch to any other vocals that need to match. It's that easy.
4) VocAlign Ultra comes with over 60 alignment presets
While previous versions of VocAlign included a small number of alignment settings to control how your audio was being aligned, there weren't really presets. What you'll find in VocALign Ultra is a variety of carefully designed and well labelled presets covering all the most common vocal and instrument alignment scenarios to help get your issues fixed even faster. You can also tweak and create your own presets which can be saved to use again in the future.
5) The VocAlign Ultra GUI is fully resizable
Users of VocAlign Project and Pro have often told us that not being able to resize the GUI is a big limitation. That all changes with VocAlign Ultra which can be reduced to down to a compact size just showing the key controls or be made full screen for detailed editing. Put simply, VocAlign Ultra can be as big or as small as you need it to be, depending on which controls you need to see.
6) New Audio Displays
With VocAlign Ultra we have moved away from just having the energy display which can be found in Project and Pro and we've added two brand new displays in VocAlign Ultra. The first is a waveform display which shows your audio just how it would appear in your DAW. Secondly we have a new display showing the pitch traces of your signals so you can easily see how they differ before and after processing. Visually inspecting audio in VocAlign Ultra has never been as easy or flexible.
There are many other great advantages of having Ultra over previous versions of VocAlign like Formant Shifting and you get two activations per license, another heavily requested feature. Interested?
