Add a â€œVocal Keyboardistâ€ to Your Stage or Studio
For musicians who canâ€™t accommodate a choir or group of background singers for their gigs or recording sessions, Roland proudly presents the VP-550 Vocal Designer Keyboard. Much more than a traditional vocoder or harmonizer, the VP-550 uses Rolandâ€™s breakthrough vocal-modeling technology to bring the highest-quality, interactive vocal sounds to a dedicated instrument. Connect a mic, select a sound, and play. You wonâ€™t believe what can come out of this instrument: spectacular classical choirs, soulful gospel choirs, pop and jazz voices, male & female ensembles, vintage vocoder, and lush string/vocal hybrids.
The human voice is the most expressive musical instrument of all, so why not use it as a tool to create ultra-realistic and expressive â€œvirtual vocalsâ€ with words generated from your own voice? Whether you need one voice, a full choir, or surreal vocoder-like layers, the VP-550 can deliver the interactive, expressive vocal backing you need. The VP-550 is also equipped with world-class string sounds, which can be blended together with the vocal effects.
Not specific to one style of music, the VP-550 can be used for a wide variety of musical applications. Itâ€™s ideal for musicians who perform alone or in small groups, for example, and who need an interactive, real-time backing chorus. Or, film and TV music composers who are challenged with time and budget can use the VP-550 to generate high-impact choral arrangements on the spot. Churches in need of a choir (or choir enhancer) will love the VP-550. The creative possibilities are vast, as are the time/money savings that this instrument can provide.
The VP-550 is also equipped with high-resolution vocoder modeling, which can be used to generate surreal vocal effects â€” great for electronica, pop, R&B, hip-hop, and the like. Inject a dose of â€œrobot voiceâ€ charm into your next recording without the hassle and expense of a separate vocoder.
One look at the VP-550â€™s inviting front panel and youâ€™ll know that this instrument has â€œuser friendlyâ€ written all over it. There are no hidden menus or complicated key commands required. Every feature has a dedicated button or slider thatâ€™s clearly labeled and easy to reach. Performers will especially love how inviting and inspiring the VP-550 is to use onstage.
