OVERVIEW

Distinct robot voice characteristics.

Aggressively processed vocals are common in electronic music today, but producing these effects easily and reproducing them live continues to be a challenge. The VT-3 lets you smoothly alter Pitch and Formant and can introduce heavily processed vocal sounds into your studio tracks and live performances with zero hassle.

And it's not just for robot voices (although robot voices are totally acceptable). The VT-3 has the power to transform your voice into synthesizers, synth basses, hard-tuned and lo-fi vocals and more. The VT-3 can also be subtle and musical, with built-in reverb, smooth Wet/Dry fader control and instant bypass.

Built for creative speed and live performance, the VT-3 is meant to be played. It has high quality specs and sturdy, brightly-lit controls that are dead simple to use. The controls and functions are smooth and immediate with no popping or clicking or latency issues to worry about, even when switching presets or changing voice characters. Weighing less than two pounds and small enough to slip into a bag, you can take the VT-3 anywhere.

FEATURES
  • Choose from 9 types of voice characters
  • Change Pitch and Formant in real-time with smooth dedicated sliders
  • Large dedicated REVERB and MIX BLANCE sliders
  • Save your three favorite settings for instant recall
  • Footswitch control for live performance
  • Pure green LEDs and brightly lit controls for great visibility
  • Lightweight and durable construction for easy portability
  • XLR standard combo jack with phantom power and 1/8" inch powered mic jack
  • Stereo outputs can be configured as separate mono Wet/Dry channels
  • USB audio interface with loopback recording to overdub vocals on existing tracks
  • Great for podcasts and live web streaming
  • USB bus powered
  • Integrates seamlessly with other AIRA series products

Made for live vocal processing, with electric results. Take the VT-3 on stage today!

Good Product, not so good customer service!

Comments about AIRA VT-3 Voice Transformer:

I bought this to do exactly what it says and it does that. I have no issues with the product. However, I bought this as new and it showed up open box missing the AC adapter. I was not offered the open box price even after informing Musician's Friend about the missing adapter until I asked for it. To date, I have still not received the AC adapter that's supposed to be supplied with the unit. This unit is also powered by a USB "Printer Cable" that I purchased locally. For these reasons this review gets only 3 stars. Good product, not so good customer service!

    Comments about Roland AIRA VT-3 Voice Transformer:

    We will be using all of the vocal features. I like the onboard synth buy we won't use it. But the vox and vocoder are powerful I look forward to adding it to our music.

    • Ventriloquist Dummy

    Comments about Roland AIRA VT-3 Voice Transformer:

    I was planning to use this instrument for my ventriloquist performance for our grand kids and their friends, using ventriloquist dummies that I recently purchased. It has worked as good as I anticipated. I purchased an optional footswitch along with it so that I can switch my original voice and an altered voice just by the foot switch. Since I have found it to difficult to create alternative voices easily and do not spend a lot of time in ventriloquist voice training, this makes it easy. I can transform my male voice in to young female voices, or space robot voices, etc, etc. It is a lot of fun. It is amazing and I love it.

    Good sound quality, NO MiDi control !

    Comments about Roland AIRA VT-3 Voice Transformer:

    This is a fun TOY. The Vocoder is limited to slider pitch control, so you CANNOT perform a melody on a MIDI keyboard to make the vocoder "Sing" like a vocalist, but rather its pretty much stuck on whatever pitch you move the pitch slider to with not visible NOTE INFO, such as C, D, E, F etc. It's pretty limited, but the sounds are good, although you can produce most of these effects with FREE Plug-ins on Audacity !! LOL
