Co-developed with Antares Audio Technologies, the TASCAM TA-1VP vocal processor brings together everything you need for a polished, modern vocal sound. The rackmount processor includes a microphone preamp, compression, de-essing, microphone and tube modeling, and Antares' world-famous Auto-Tune pitch correction. Perfect for live performance, house of worship or studio use, the TA-1VP brings your vocal sound into the 21st century.
A high-quality XLR microphone input is provided on the TA-1VP front panel, with phantom power for condenser mics. Processing is laid out in simple-to-use blocks on the front panel, each with dedicated buttons and meters to show you exactly what's being done to the signal. Antares' microphone and tube modeling takes the input signal and gives it the character of another microphone, with a library of classics to choose from. The De-essing module removes sibilance from your signal before variable-knee compression and gating. A great-sounding digital EQ is last in the chain before output.
The Auto-Tune module can be set for any level of pitch correction, in a variety of user-selectable scales. All settings can be recalled through presets on the front panel or through MIDI. Balanced TRS input and outputs are located on the rear panel, including a Double-Track out for simulating doubled vocals. A S/PDIF digital output is also provided.
Built for every audio application from live performance to studio mixdown, TASCAM's TA-1VP is the only hardware processor with Auto-Tune technology for flawless vocal intonation.

I have been on the fence for about a year now trying to figure out which vocal processor would fit my home studio best. On the journey I considered various TC Helicon products as well as this processor. With the recent price drop I finally landed on TA-1VP given and all I can say is WOW, what bang for the buck. Out of the box you notice how solidly it is made. It's a tank like much of the other Tascam stuff. I plugged it in and was then off and running without any problems. If you are looking for a unt that does not require prior signal processing knowledge then this unit may not be as intuitive as you may like and the manual won't be tremendously helpful without that knowledge. If you have the knowledge then the unit and manual are as intuitive as the day is long. This is a humble and natural sounding processor and not a glitzy and over produced and sometimes unnatural sounding product like the TC stuff is so it is best to think about this as a straight forward no nonsense channel strip that happens to also have basic Autotune pitch correction, some Mic Modeling (not as much as the full version of Mic Modeling) and great dynamics processing. The sound that comes out of this thing is outstanding and my vocals popped right to the front of my mix easy peasy. This box is very musical and won't get in your way as it is super easy to dial in. The Autotune does the job as designed and gives you handsome pitch corrected vocals. It will not however give you all the electronica processing that the uninspired seek (does anyone under 25 sing au natural anymore?). The analog tube modeling rocked and the mic modeler made my Shure Beta 58a sounded like a high quality large diaphragm condesnor mic. The dynamics more than handled my sometimes aggressive phrasing and kept things smoothe. In the end I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. In fact, this is the best purchase I have made in years. A one line synopsis: this unit is exceptionally high on quality albeit without any unnecessary frills to keep you sounding like yourself rather than everyone else.
If you are expecting the same performance as the plug-in, dont bother with ordering this unit. Taking this unit back to the store next week, not going to bother with live autotune. There seems to be a defect with the hardware firmware on this effect, crackles and pops.
I purchased the Tascam TA 1-VP unit only a week ago, and have been experimenting with it for several days.... the Antares Auto Tune has a horrible glitch that renders the altered track unuseable. The problem is a scratching crackle sound like that of an old vinyl record from the needle on a less than perfect vinyl record surface. I tried turning off each section (Mic Modeling, Compressor, etc.) one at a time to isolate the problem....bought new cables... switched out cables.... only happens when the Auto Tune is engaged..... the other sections work as advertised.....very nice "tube warmth" effectm although it also increases volume level at the same time...I will probably return this unit to the store first of next week --- perhaps just a lemon ?....careful folks.
