Product Description

Aggressively processed vocals are common in electronic music today, but producing these effects easily and reproducing them live has been a challenge—until now. With the VT-3 Voice Transformer, you can smoothly alter pitch and formant in real time to introduce heavily processed vocal sounds into your studio tracks and stage performances with zero hassle. On top of that, the VT-3 looks great and works seamlessly with other products in the AIRA series.

Total Transformation
The VT-3 is not just for robot voices. It also has the power to transform your voice into synthesizers, synth basses, hard-tuned and lo-fi sounds, and more. The VT-3 can also be subtle and musical, with built-in reverb, smooth wet/dry fader control, and instant bypass.

Transform your voice with different character types:
  • Pop and electro sounds with two distinctive Auto-Pitch effects
  • Create VP-330-style Vocoder sounds without the need for a keyboard
  • Scatter function for glitchy effects that sound like something’s broken (in a good way)
  • Loads of lo-fi character with Megaphone and Radio settings
  • Synthetic sounding voices with the Robot button
  • Synth, Lead, and Bass settings for synths you can sing
Smooth Control
Built for creative speed and live performance, the VT-3 is meant to be played. It features high-quality specs and sturdy, brightly lit controls that are dead simple to use. The controls and functions are smooth and immediate, with no popping, clicking, or latency issues to worry about, even when switching presets or changing voice characters. Weighing less than two pounds and small enough to slip into a bag, you can take the VT-3 anywhere.

Cute, Frivoulous Fun.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
OK, I admit this was an Impulse Buy... I didn't expect much in useful sounds, and that' what I got: Not much. It's fun. But I'm having a hard time finding any real use for it. Perhaps if I was a live dance act, it would have more use.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
All the controls are solid and smooth functioning. But note that although the description says "aluminum construction" it's only the top plate that aluminum, the rest is good old plastic.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
It's pretty easy to figure out. The minimalist "manual" (one sheet) is enough to get you going.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Basically this takes vocal/mic input and either distorts or pitch-changes it beyond human. By mixing dry and effect you can get some more subtle sounds. But it's character gets lost in a big mix. There really aren't a lot of "features," just sound options.
Sound
How is the tone?
Sound is OK. The synthetic voice sound is not as detailed as more high end gear. This one remains more on the "fuzzy" side of the spectrum. And it's character gets lost in a big mix.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
So far, so good. We won't know until it's been around a while...
