VoxSyn by VirSyn

VirSyn brings us another innovative app on iOS! VoxSyn is a Universal "vocal sound generator" that uses your own voice as the source, with a stylish hexagonal layout to play it. VoxSyn arrives on sale at an introductory price of $7.

VoxSyn iTunes Description:

VoxSyn turns your voice into the most flexible vocal sound generator ever. Instantly following even subtle modulations of pitch and spectral changes of your voice VoxSyn creates signature vocal sounds far beyond traditional vocoding.

Talk or sing into the microphone and you’ll trigger various synthesizer sounds following your voice pitch or the notes touched on the hexagonal keyboard / external MIDI Keyboard. The basic sounds are selected from a vast pool of predefined sounds from the famous TERA synthesis engine which can be further expanded by its unique random sound generator.

The harmonic table note layout visualizes your voices pitch in realtime and also let you play notes for more traditional vocoder effects.

VoxSyn is Audiobus compatible and can be used in the Input, Filter and Output slots in the Audiobus signal chain.

The output can be recorded to an audio file which you can use with other Apps and programs for further processing.

Lamb of God - Still Echoes (Guitar Cover)

This week we've had some interesting discussions on labels within the genre of Metal here. YouTuber smejky007 gives us a taste of some highly technical modern Metal in this cover of Lamb of God. My fingers hurt just watching his.
