iVoxel - The singing vocoder
iVoxel is not only an amazingly sounding vocoder - the unique concept of iVoxel turns this vocoder into a singing machine. iVoxel is a combination of a voice optimized synthesizer and a vocoder. The vocoder part is based on the Matrix vocoder from VirSyn used by many famous artists - one of them the well known german group Kraftwerk. The channel filters used by iVoxel are based on the Sennheiser Vocoder VSM201 resulting in a rich and fat analogue sound characteristic.
The pitch follower and automatic tuning let you sing correct to a selectable scale.
You can use iVoxel in many different ways:
As a realtime vocoder talking into the microphone while playing tunes on the keyboard. The sound character of your voice can be changed in many different aspects like pitch, gender or breath noise. Use it to sing over your favorite iTunes song !
Record the analyzed spectrum of phrases and words from your own voice. Then use this voxel to play with your own voice on the keyboard or with the build in sequencer. Nearly 300 hundred prerecorded voxels are already included.
The output of your creations can be recorded to an audio file which you
can use with other Apps and programs for further processing.

Ratings and Reviews
worse than the ios version and at an absurd markup DO NOT BUY!
this app crashes, EVERY SINGLE TIME IT IS OPENED. For four times what i paid for the ipad version i expected a more robust app. this was the dumbest purchase i have made to date. Do Not Buy! Try orange Vocoder (it's Free) or Reaktor's The Mouth, there are a lot of great vocoder apps out there. this app is far behind the times in what vocoding can do. Every free app vocoder has at least all of the controlls that this one does. DO NOT BUY! WILL UPDATE WHEN I CAN OPEN MY PURCHASE! Running on 2011 imac 10.6.6.
not ready for prime time
This app crashes continously, it doesn't accept the microphone or AKAI keyboard, and it doesn't provide a step to step orientation which might stabilize it's components and lead to a successful experience with production. Bluetooth headphones cause it to malfunction, and my entire computer froze. Please fix as you take in $$! I wonder if Apple tests these out, being that they're so scrupulous.
works fine - no latency
The app works fine - the UI is a bit non-standard, but I can produce all the sounds I want. Works as advertised & lots of fun.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
