VocalSynth 2 brings a wealth of new voice synthesis tools, and the new Creative Suite bundles many of iZotope's best-loved processors for a tempting price. Here are the details.

iZotope has added two new products to its impressive lineup of instruments and effects, and they're available now. VocalSynth 2 is a powerful, multi-stage voice processor and synthesizer and iZotope Creative Suite is a collection of many of the company's groundbreaking plug-ins and instruments - Iris 2, Trash 2 Expanded, BreakTweaker Expanded, Stutter Edit, DDLY, Mobius Filter and it also includes the aforementioned VocalSynth 2.

VocalSynth

VocalSynth lets you take a mix through past, present, and future vocal sounds with five vocal processors including Vocoder, Compuvox, Polyvox, Talkbox, and now Biovox: a brand new effect based on the sonic qualities of the human vocal tract. iZotope has re-engineered VocalSynth to sound better, perform better, and provide a better result faster.

New and updated effects can be found in the stompbox section including: Chorus, a commonly used vocal effect in vocal production and Ring Mod, a new ring modulator with a hint of tremolo. The Shred effect also offers extensive improvements that make it more powerful for chopping, slicing, and achieving beat repeating effects.

“In its first iteration, VocalSynth was a go-to for getting the creative vocal effects emusic producers know and love inspired by decades of vocal production styles ,” says Kim Pfluger, Product Marketing Manager at iZotope. “ VocalSynth 2 builds on this by incorporating user feedback and pushing boundaries into a fun, new space of what vocal plug-ins can do to shape new sounds in vocal production.”


The latest module in VocalSynth 2, Biovox, is a completely new effect based on a physical model of the human vocal tract, whose shape is continuously changing according to the input vocal signal providing a relatively neutral, clean-sounding modulation. Biovox is built to sound great across multiple genres with vowel replacement which makes cleaner-than-human, modern phrasing possible.

Inter-plugin communication was first introduced in Neutron 2 and Ozone 8 allowing iZotope plug-ins to communicate across different tracks in a mix.VocalSynth represents the next step in this journey. Now users can explore even more creative possibilities with the ability to better understand the context of a track in a larger mix. VocalSynth will be visible in Neutron 2’s Masking Meter and Visual Mixer as well as in Tonal Balance Control.
