VocaLive 3 offers singers and vocalists an expandable suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects along with a feature rich 8-track recorder/DAW for studio quality sound (via in-app purchase), a 4-track looper for creative vocal experimentation (via in-app purchase), plus the ability to re-mike the input microphone with the Mic Room feature to add the sound and color of 20 coveted studio microphones, all in a portable package (via in-app purchase). The effects can be combined into a chain of 4 processors and saved as presets. A collection of 55 presets is included to get you up and running immediately.

VocaLive 3 includes 5 Vocal Effects – Pitch Fix (for tuning correction or stylized quantization FX), Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (a formant shifter to change the tonal quality of the voice from subtle deepening to radical gender bending), De-Esser (to remove sibilance from the voice), and Double (by registering) plus 7 Studio Effects – Reverb, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter — that together provide unparalleled creative processing power.

With the optional Mic Room feature, VocaLive 3 now lets you “re-mike” your input microphone to add the sound and color from 20 available classic and modern studio microphone emulations. Couple this with iRig microphones and interfaces so that you can “re-mike” your vocals on the fly, play them back and listen to them as if they were recorded through the selected microphone model.

VocaLive 3 features an integrated recording studio/DAW style editor that lets you record and edit audio. It gives you a detailed waveform visualization touch-and-drag looping, easy punch-in and punch-out recording, and streamlined access to all recording and mixing controls. VocaLive also features a new 4-track looper (via in-app purchase) for creative vocal experimentation and harmony development.

For the best sound quality, use VocaLive with IK’s range of pro quality microphones and interfaces like iRig Mic HD, iRig Mic Studio, iRig PRO and iRig Pro DUO dual channel audio interface.

VocaLive also supports digital audio input devices so you can use any standard USB compliant audio interface (Apple CCK required).

Use a MIDI interface like iRig MIDI 2 or iRig BlueBoard to control your vocal processors “hands-free”.

VocaLive supports Apple’s Inter-App Audio feature.

Not working with Bluetooth or aux jack


I really love this app, but the fact that it's not working at all with my Bluetooth headset really hurts the rating. It also does not play well through the aux. It also gets glitchy when arming and disarming tracks, causing it to blast out extremely loud. Also, it's not working smoothly with GarageBand. I love the features inside this app and if these issues were resolved, there wouldn't be a rating high enough for it. iPhone 6s Plus 128 and IRig duo. I see great possibilities with this app. If these problems are fixed, I will be the best advertisement I can be for you guys. If there's anything that I can do to help, please let me know, because I want it to work right as bad as anyone.

Please Update


Please update your app, VocaLive. I used to use this app all the time but it now experiences issues with other apps that have been more frequently updated, namely AudioMaster. This app isn't free and it would be awesome if you guys could make it user-friendly and modern again. Thank you. If you make changes I'll be glad to give a better review. This used to be a great app but it's become rather obsolete.

I'm downgrading my stars because this app is useless. It's not working with other apps because it hasn't been upgraded in forever ans the developers obviously didn't care to take our money and continue to give us what we paid for. What a waste.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

Chris Collazo

You guys had an amazing app that got damaged by updates and other stupid things you wanted to do. Then people who purchased the app couldn't use half of the plug ins from the update. Then everything was switched around as if we get an instructional manual with this app WHEN WE DONT. I've seen this app go from five stars to a three in no time. You've ruined a lot for people. It was fun and easy. Now your trying to go pro. Stop!!!
