VP-9000

VariPhrase Processor

VP-9000
Discontinued

The VP-9000 VariPhrase Processor is a revolutionary audio processor capable of realtime manipulation of sampled phrases' pitch, time, and formant via MIDI while maintaining superb sound quality. Use it to instantly match loops to the same key and tempo, add realistic harmonies to a solo vocal performance, bend notes in real time without changing the phrase length and much more.

Includes V-Producer Software

V-Producer combines the reliability of the VP-9000 hardware with the convenience of your personal computer. Now you can control everything from encoding and wave editing to building arrangements, mixing and effects using a computer screen and mouse. Let V-Producer open the door to a new way of making music with VariPhrase.

Powerful Phrase Scope Editing

The VP-9000’s ability to manipulate Pitch, Time, and Formant via front-panel knobs has made it popular with live performers. Now, with V-Producer’s Phrase Scope window, studio users can control these same elements using an intuitive graphic interface. Create new melodies by drawing in the pitch, or change phrasing with the click of a mouse—all in real time.

Main Window and Mixer Window

V-Producer’s Main Window offers intuitive “drag and drop” sequencing of phrases loaded in the VP-9000. Build your song onscreen, then open the Mixer Window for graphic 6-channel mixing of the VP-9000’s multitimbral parts. You can even control the VP-9000’s internal effects and routing graphically via the Effects Window.

Controls Up to Six VP-9000’s

A single copy of V-Producer can be used to control up to six VP-9000’s. Create a complete VariPhrase workstation with up to 36 audio tracks (36 voices or 36 multitimbral parts) and bring it all together under one simple, elegant program. V-Producer is the software that grows with your hardware.

MTC Sync Ready

While V-Producer is designed to work as a stand-alone application, it can also be synchronized with other hardware and software sequencers—even if they’re run on the same computer—using MTC (MIDI Time Code). Or, simply export your V-Producer arrangement as a Standard MIDI File. The choice is yours…
