OVERVIEW

The only hardware vocal processor with Antares Auto-Tune pitch correction and vocal modeling.

Co-developed with Antares Audio Technologies, the TASCAM TA-1VP vocal processor brings together everything you need for a polished, modern vocal sound. The rackmount processor includes a microphone preamp, compression, de-essing, microphone and tube modeling, and Antares' world-famous Auto-Tune pitch correction. Perfect for live performance, house of worship or studio use, the TA-1VP brings your vocal sound into the 21st century.

A high-quality XLR microphone input is provided on the TA-1VP front panel, with phantom power for condenser mics. Processing is laid out in simple-to-use blocks on the front panel, each with dedicated buttons and meters to show you exactly what's being done to the signal. Antares' microphone and tube modeling takes the input signal and gives it the character of another microphone, with a library of classics to choose from. The De-essing module removes sibilance from your signal before variable-knee compression and gating. A great-sounding digital EQ is last in the chain before output.

The Auto-Tune module can be set for any level of pitch correction, in a variety of user-selectable scales. All settings can be recalled through presets on the front panel or through MIDI. Balanced TRS input and outputs are located on the rear panel, including a Double-Track out for simulating doubled vocals. A S/PDIF digital output is also provided.

Built for every audio application from live performance to studio mixdown, TASCAM's TA-1VP is the only hardware processor with Auto-Tune technology for flawless vocal intonation.

  • Antares Auto-Tune Evo real-time pitch correction with enhanced tracking and correction capabilities

TA-1VP a hit

Comments about Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor with Antares Auto-Tune:

I am very impressed with this processor. This unit has the great real-time pitch correction that Antares is known for, plus Antares mic modelling, which also does an outstanding job. I'm still experimenting with some of the mic modelling features that are a little confusing, specifically when to use or not use the lo-cut feature. Their instructions could be a little clearer on that, but overall the manual is good. The rest of the features--compressor/gate, de-esser, and two equalizers--do a fine job of helping tweak the vocal sound. I have a home studio that's not in a particularly good room, and this unit has helped greatly with shaping vocals. The presets are a good starting point, and if you follow the manual carefully, have a little patience, and have some experience with what the functions do, you should be able to greatly improve the quality of vocals on your recordings.

nothing to boast about

By John Herlihy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor with Antares Auto-Tune:

I bought this because of the great reviews I read. I bought this and a TC Helicon voicelive rack. The TC helicon totally puts this unit to shame. The TC helicon sounds great,and is very easy to figuire out with so many more options. This TA-1VP was very difficult to figuire out and the manual did not help much. I spent about 2 hours trying to get the sound right,and I could not get it to sound good at all. It is possible I needed to spend more time trying to learn it - but the TC helicon I bought was very easy to use,and the manual with it made everything clear. The TC helicon does cost much more,but to me it is worth the difference!

Comments about Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor with Antares Auto-Tune:

Used this product a total of 4 hours and the auto tune function stopped working. After many attempts to contact Tascam via e-mail with not one reply I finally called them only to find out I have to pay $90+ to have it repaired. Won't but their products again.

    Comments about Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor with Antares Auto-Tune:

    I use AutoTune EVO in ProTools all the time and wanted a nice live
    version. This module is an upgraded model of a similar unit Antares was selling before bringing Tascam in to help. Seems they added the XLR on the front and a few other tweeks.

    Although not nearly as versatile at AT pitch coorection as the DAW version, it has very low latency and is pretty nice in a live side car rack. I find the factory presets to be decent when working with most singers who just need a little pitch centering to tighten things up. The mic modeller is nice, the gate/limiter excellent. I like this unit as a nice channel strip insert,.

    One note, be sure to adjust your input gain on the unit! The AT module needs a good input level to do its job. If its too low, you won't see the correction meter deflecting, and it will deflect wihen you have proper levels.

    Overall, a great value. On the down side, I wish it had more presets. 100 would have been nice, 35 is not quite enough in a fast moving set list.

      Lacks xlr ins and outs on the back. only one xlr in on the front which is less than ideal location for live use. I expect better on a rack mount item. For me I put this in the toy category. fun to play around with at home.

        Comments about Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor with Antares Auto-Tune:

        I have been recording, and using outboard gear for 40 years as a professional producer. I recently sold off many thousands of $$$ in UREI mikes and replaced with a handful of Shure and China knockoffs. Why? Because I bought a REVIVE Pro VLA II and aTASCAM ANTARES unit and chained them. Vocal paradise in less than 5 minutes. Each time. No exceptions. The ANTARES unit not only does a great Auto-tune, but the MIC MODELER is first rate. Want warm! YESSUH! We got WARM!. Want bright? WE GOT BRIGHT! Great ADT? We got yer ADT right here!

        If you use rack gear and dont have this ANTARES, well, you missed the boat.

          I use the Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor inserted in the effect loop of a mixer and I get good sound from the processor. I tested the Tascam TA-1VP Vocal Processor for a few days and very satisfied with the results it gives to my recordings.
