      Roland VP-7 Vocal Processor (485383)
Availability:  


Create harmonies and background vocals instantly, from a single voice to a full-scale choir.

For keyboardists in need of great background vocals, the Roland VP-7 vocal processor is ready to sing. Create harmonies instantly, from a single voice to a full-scale choir, with a microphone and a MIDI connection to the keyboard of your choice. It's simple. Just select a sound type from the front panel and play. The Human Voice section provides rich and expressive choral backing by just playing the keyboard—no singing required. The Roland vocal processing pedal section can automatically generate 2-voice or 3-voice backing harmonies based on the lyrics that you sing into the microphone. And, for classic robot-voice effects, the Vocoder button lets you instantly sound like a vintage vocoder.

Ultimate Expression
The Roland VP-7 lets you create "virtual vocals" with spoken or sung phrases from your own voice. Whether you need a basic harmony or perhaps a vintage vocoder sound, the VP-7 can deliver the interactive, expressive vocal backing you need. Play the desired harmony notes on the keyboard, and sing. The vocal effects pedal can even generate harmonies without singing at all—just play and let the VP-7's Human Voice section do the vocalizing for you.

Easy Control
Operating the Roland VP-7 vocal processor couldn't be easier. Even though the effect pedal itself is compact, the dedicated buttons and knobs are large and clearly labeled. Four knobs provide instant control over volume, Mic level, Harmony mix, and Ambiance level. Large front-panel buttons are provided for selecting the Human Voice type (Female Choir, Boys Choir, Gregorian Choir, and Jazz Scat), for selecting the Vocal Designer type (Duet, Trio 1, and Trio 2), for Bypass, and for activating the Vocoder section.

On Time, On Budget
The Roland VP-7 can be used for a wide variety of musical applications. The vocal effects processor ideal for musicians who perform alone or in small groups, for example, and who need an interactive, realtime backing chorus. The creative possibilities are vast, as are the time/money savings that this instrument can provide.

  • Just bought the Roland VP-7

    As reviewed by REENI MEDEROS on 11/17/2011

    I bought the Roland VP-7 Vocal Processor/Harmonizer this past week and it was very easy to set up. For the pros, it is easy to use and set up. I was looking for a harmonizer specifically for my keyboard. I was recommended to look into Digitech Vocalist and some other expensive ones that were out of my budget. The VP-7 is still a little pricey in my opinion. It does add some flavor to my vocals at the right time for accents and choruses. It has every thing I need. However, because I have a good ear, the harmonies do sound slightly electronic. I guess it as good as you're gonna get for not being human. But it is good enough to perform live in my opinion if you use it selectively. I have not tried the Digitech Vocalist and thought to try this one instead because I need something easy to use while playing. What I love the most about it is the midi set up. The harmonies track your keyboard and vocals to a T. Almost too perfect so those with a good hear can tell. But to the average person, they would think you're a star. lol. I do live webcasting and needed some background vocals without having to pay a real human. Saves on my budget. Will see how the audience likes it after I get their reviews. I do my own vocals in the studio and my human voice sounds way better. Can't beat a natural born singer when it comes to harmonies. So I lay down my own tracks. However, this VP-7 is good for laying scratch vocals too because it will pick out the harmonies for you and then when you lay down the overdubs, you know exactly what to do. This helps save time. I have a good ear but it does take some effort to harmonize when you a lead singer and you are laying down your own background vocals. I love the voice God gave me, so I'll stick to that in the studio. But for live stuff when I can't be more than one person, it works good. I would also like to see this offered a little cheaper, but I did get a good coupon discount on this one. Is it worth it? I think so. It's pretty fun to work with too. But I have to admit, that slight electronic voice sound of the harmonies does bother my ear a little. I always prefer the real deal but when you are stuck in a bind, the Vocalizer is the way to go. I will use it for sure.

  • Great piece of equipment

    As reviewed by Jake Tavill on 4/25/2011

    The Roland VP-7 is an amazing piece of equipment and tool to have for live performing. It is great for a solo performer and even just small groups. It is insanely fun to play around with and use. There are so many different combinations and functions to use that it never gets old.If you are a singer this is the advantage that you want to have. This item is a must buy for singers who would like to spice up their vocals however they want to.
