Generate expressive, interactive backing vocals in real time.

Ideal for musicians who can't afford or accommodate a choir or group of background singers, the VP-550 Vocal Designer keyboard uses Roland's breakthrough vocal-modeling technology to create high-quality, interactive vocal sounds.

Much more than a traditional vocoder or harmonizing effect, the VP-550 can easily deliver spectacular classical choirs, soulful gospel choirs, pop and jazz voices, male and female ensembles, vintage vocoder, and lush string/vocal hybrids. Simply connect a mic, select a sound, and play.

Vocal-Modeling Magic
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 "virtual vocals" 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.

Practical Advantage
Not specific to one style of music, the VP-550 can be used for a wide variety of musical applications. It'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.

Robot Charm
The VP-550 is also equipped with high-resolution vocoder modeling, which can be used to generate surreal vocal effects ” great for electronica, pop, R&B, hip-hop, and the like. Inject a dose of "robot voice" charm into your next recording without the hassle and expense of a separate vocoder.

Friendly Face
One look at the VP-550's inviting front panel and you'll know that this instrument has "user friendly" written all over it. There are no hidden menus or complicated key commands required. Every feature has a dedicated button or slider that's clearly labeled and easy to reach. Performers will especially love how inviting and inspiring the VP-550 is to use onstage.

I purchased this about 6 months ago along with an Alesis Fusion. All I can say is it is a killer combination. I love the fact that I can now do a bit of singing and actually sound great!!!
