VocALign PRO - Plug In - Maximum Power for Dialogue, Vocal, and Instrument Time-Alignment Tasks
VocALign PRO is a more powerful version of the unique VocALign automatic audio alignment tool. It is a unique audio software solution that provides audio, post production, and multimedia professionals with flexibility and power to quickly complete audio alignment tasks—all within the industry-standard Pro Tools environment as an AudioSuite plug-in.
VocALign Pro automatically stretches or compresses one audio signal to match the timing patterns of another audio signal, saving you time and money.
Post production and multimedia pros can use VocALign PRO to synchronize dialog to video, dub foreign language films, tighten Foley and sound effects tracks, fine-tune the timing of one music track to match another, or achieve a perfectly lip-synched performance for a music video. Audio engineers will enjoy the ease with which they can align over dubbed vocal or instrument parts, tighten the timing of lead and backing vocals, or synchronize a drum machine to a real drummer’s performance. VocALign PRO also includes a TimeMod (time compression/expansion) feature that can be used as a gender-bending tool to dramatically change the timbre of a singer’s or actor’s vocal performance or more fi nely adjust timing. VocALign Pro is an essential tool that can help you reduce studio time needed for re-recording dialog or overdubbing.
Easy to Use
Although VocALign PRO includes sophisticated capabilities, it is simple to use. To align audio within a Pro Tools session, just choose an original audio region (Guide) and new region (Dub) from the session. At the touch of a button, VocALign PRO adjusts the audio without altering its pitch. VocALign Pro then returns audio directly to the desired track, with sample accuracy. Sophisticated pattern matching techniques reject guide track noise and work easily with vocal talent, singers, instruments, and sounds. For finer control over how VocALign Pro adjusts the timing of audio, you can modify the flexibility settings. Operating as an AudioSuite plug-in within a Pro Tools session, processing occurs faster than real time.
VocALign has been used for more than a decade for major feature films, TV shows, and popular music recordings. VocALign PRO introduces advanced new features that offer improved accuracy, sound quality, and ease of use. A new, more sophisticated pattern recognition algorithm increases alignment accuracy, though it’s also now easier to fine-tune alignment after VocALign Pro has automatically aligned audio. In addition, VocALign PRO now provides a longer maximum signal length, enabling you to process up to five minutes of audio at a time.
VocALign PRO also includes several important new user options to give you more control over any audio that needs alignment. User-defined Sync Points let you target audio alignment at specified pairs of points in two signals. A protected signal block feature allows you to protect sections of the replacement (Dub) signal from being time-compressed or expanded during alignment. Now you can also re-use an alignment path on another Dub signal to make it easier to align multi-track performances.
New preview controls allow you to listen to sections or all of the signals before and after alignment, individually or together. With VocALign PRO, aligned audio will sound better, so you’ll spend less time editing. An improved TimeMod (time compression/expansion) feature has been optimized for single-pitch signals but offers an option to use an alternative TimeMod algorithm for more complex signals. The introduction of iLok authorization provides easy, secure,and portable license authorization.
