VocaLive, IK Multimedia's real time vocal effects processor for iOS, now comes with a raft of new features as it lands at version 3.

The headlining addition is Mic Room, which enables you to choose from a selection of 20 different modelled microphones for your recordings, based on models from manufacturers including Sennheiser, Shure, Neumann and AKG.

VocaLive version 2 saw new DAW-like features included by way of the Studio section. The latest version builds on this functionality, with the option to record up to eight tracks simultaneously.

A new looper function is also included, which enables you to record up to four synced loops, and you're now able to chain up to four effects in both the iPhone and iPad versions.

VocaLive 3 is available on the App store now for £14.99/$19.99 or as a free update for previous VocaLive users. The Mic Pack (£7.99/$9.99), Looper (£7.99/$9.99), All FX pack (£14.99/$19.99) and Recorder/Studio (£14.99/$19.99) are available as in-app purchases.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
