WOK has released VVOC-1, a new free synth plug-in that generates vocal sounds with a vintage electronic touch, from single formants to synthetic choir sounds.
The integrated triple-chorus and the X/Y pad for adjusting the formants, a pitch glide function and a hidden secret unveil more power than the easy GUI might imply.
Price: Free. As with all of WOK’s plugins there is no adware or spyware included.
Realitone has released Realivox Blue. Realivox Blue is a solo female vocalist sampled into Kontakt, and features a word/phrase builder which allows the user to type in their own words. Over 12,000 samples are used to make the wordbuilder work.
True sampled legato is employed, for smooth transitions in legato phrases. Legato can be either monophonic or polyphonic.
Also featured is the ability to double or triple the voices, useful for either creating an ensemble, or to simply thicken a lead voice. Combined with the polyphonic legato feature, Realivox Blue can emulate small choirs in a single instance.
Optionally available in Kontakt Player format.
Price: $149. Introductory price is $99.95 for users who own the full version of Kontakt, or $114.95 for users preferring the Kontakt Player version.
A quick look inside the Roland Aira VT-3 . nothing much to see really but I end the video by trying out a few instruments through it and using it as an effects unit for the TR-8 and TB-3 and AX-Synth
Voxen is a voice synthesizer. It lets you synthesize singing voices. Any voice, not just the few voices that someone else designed into it.
Plus voices that no vocalist can sing. No pitch shifting. No time warping. Just good ol’ pure synthesis.
Voxen is based on the voice synthesis technology used by speech scientists and psychoacousticians around the globe. Even though it can be great fun to play with, it is not a toy. Voxen is intended for musicians, DJs and producers who are looking for new and different sources of sounds.
It’s time to set your aural imagination free…
- Eight note polyphony
- Keyboard range of more than ten octaves
- Three X-Y touchpads
- Twenty-eight vertical linear knobs
- Choice of dark or light background colour
- Eight choices of foreground colour
- Save and load user-defined patches

This is version 1.0, so please do not expect perfection. It would be nice to believe that all bugs have been found and eliminated, but years of experience says that there are still a few left to be found. If you do find a problem, please tell us so we can fix it!
There is additional functionality already in the pipeline for version 1.1 and beyond. Top of the list are MIDI and Audiobus support. We have great plans for Voxen. Visit our community forum to help shape the future of Voxen.
Voxen is *not* a text-to-speech system. You cannot provide it with lyrics and expect it to sing them. Voxen is a synthesizer that acoustically simulates a glottis and vocal tract, allowing you to manually control the sound. It synthesizes sounds, not words.
Because a human voice is more complex than nearly any other musical instrument, a synthesizer of human voices is also very complex. To control one can require the real-time manipulation and coordination of dozens of separate parameters.
If you are looking for something that creates a musical performance from a piece of sheet music and some lyrics on a scrap of paper, hire a good vocalist. On the other hand, if you are looking some new and different sounds, use Voxen.
Voxen is 50% off at launch. The initial price is $7.99.
