The VP-03 Boutique is a miniature version of the VP-330 Vocoder Plus, one of the most popular vocoders ever made. The VP-03 Boutique brings together the worlds of synthesized sound and the human voice, using the latest ACB technology to emulate the sound that made the original so influential. The VP-03 Boutique has the VP-330’s vocoder, human voice, and strings sound sources on board, and comes with a gooseneck microphone. There are new features too, including 16 Chord Memory setups and a Voice Step Sequencer for even more creative potential. Whether you want the classic, electro-infused “talking robot” sound or the expressive power of shaping synth sounds with the human voice, the VP-03 Boutique puts it all at your fingertips.
New Voice Step Sequencer
The VP-03 Boutique includes a new Voice Step Sequencer not included in the original VP-330, which allows you to input a single note, chord, or your voice into each of the 16 steps, with each step comprising up to six notes. The result is a distinctive rhythmic effect that brings dynamic motion to the VP-03 Boutique. You can use a series of functions to change the order of steps within the sequence for unpredictable and inspiring results. Saving your best sequences to a computer via USB is easy using the backup/restore function.
New Chord Memory Function￼
Another new function not found in the original VP-330 is Chord Memory, which lets you play back chords using just one finger. With 16 locations available, you can quickly store and recall your favorite chords using one of the 16 step buttons. You can also create your own chords and save them into these locations, and back them up to your computer using the backup/restore function.
In addition to line and headphone outputs (both in mini-jack format), the VP-03 Boutique is equipped with a full-size XLR mic input. Simply connect the supplied gooseneck mic to fully unlock the VP-03 Boutique’s creative potential, using your voice (or any other sound) to filter and shape the onboard synthesized sounds. You can also connect the VP-03 Boutique to other devices, either through the standard MIDI IN/OUT ports or via a Micro-B USB connection that handles both audio and MIDI data.
￼Battery or USB Bus Power
￼Some of the best music is made away from the studio, so the Roland Boutique series runs on 4 x AA ￼batteries, ready for when inspiration strikes. Alternatively, you can use the VP-03 Boutique with USB bus ￼power. Incredibly portable, the VP-03 Boutique weighs just over two poinds with the batteries installed.
USB Audio Interface for Direct Recording to Your DAW
Via its USB port, the VP-03 Boutique also functions as a high-quality 24-bit/96 kHz audio interface, providing a simple and reliable way of recording directly to your DAW application. You can keep your favorite settings and voice step sequencer patterns safe too via the USB data backup function.
