TASCAM TA-1VP vocal processor brings together everything you need for a polished, modern vocal sound, as it’s co-developed with Antares Audio Technologies. The rackmount processor includes a microphone preamp, compression, de-essing, mic and tube modeling, and Antares’ world-famous Auto-Tune pitch correction. The TA-1VP is ideal for live performance, house of worship or studio use, as well as it 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’ mic and tube modeling takes the input signal and gives it the character of another mic, 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 variey 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.

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