Key Features

1. Convert audio data into an AI voicebank singing voice in real time

VOCALO CHANGER PLUGIN is an enhanced plugin version of the VOCALO CHANGER feature from VOCALOID6. Just input singing voice audio data into a DAW and the plugin instantly converts it into a singing voice for VOCALOID6 exclusive AI voicebanks. Changing the voicebank within the plugin immediately changes the singing voice, giving creators more freedom in vocal direction by allowing them to choose singing voices based on the song, personal preference, and other factors. The VST/AU format means that the plugin is compatible with a wide range of DAWs.

2. Make intuitive adjustments to singing voices using added parameters

Singing voice data converted with VOCALO CHANGER PLUGIN has five added parameters that allow the creator to control the expressiveness of the voice. The five parameters are: (1) “Pitch Shift,” for pitch adjustments; (2) “Expression,” for adjusting singing voice dynamics; (3) “Input Gain” and (4) “Output Gain,” for adjusting input and output volume levels; and (5) “Dry/Wet,” which allows the creator to mix the AI voicebank singing voice with the original audio. Creators can adjust these parameters and change singing voices in real time to achieve the vocal expression they envision for speedy vocal direction.

These parameters can also be controlled using DAW mix automation for more intricate and flexible expression. For example, the “Expression” parameter could be used to adjust the intonation of the singing voice to match a musical phrase.
