VirSyn's VoxSyn iOS app is more flexible than your average vocoder

VirSyn has launched a new voice-controlled synth for iOS called VoxSyn, and it looks to be more than just any old vocoder.

The beauty behind VoxSyn is its flexibility. The app follows even the most subtle pitch and timbral changes in your voice to create, as VirSyn puts it, "signature vocal sounds far beyond traditional vocoding."

Synthesis is taken care of with the onboard TERA engine; however, the sounds are only available as presets, so VirSyn has included a random sound generator to expand the sonic pallette.

VoxSyn is available to buy on the App Store now for £4.99/$6.99 and more information can be found on the VirSyn website.

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.
