Product Description

With every project, you need to capture that perfect vocal and make the sound your own. VoiceMaster Pro represents a new generation of voice recording equipment.

Many of the elements from the award-winning VoiceMaster have been innovated upon. In addition, the unit features a whole host of new processors designed to ensure you have all you require to make the most of the artist you're recording.

The award-winning Class A preamp captures every nuance from any source, whilst latency-free monitoring ensures direct and delay-free mix control. Tools such as the voice-optimized EQ, Vintage Harmonics and Tube Sound allow you to get creative with a touch of class, putting your own stamp on every recording.

Add the optional 24-bit, 96 kHz digital output board to make the VoiceMaster Pro the perfect interface between your microphone and your DAW or other recording media, placing the ultimate tracking solution firmly within your grasp.

Summary of the Differences Between VoiceMaster Pro and the Original VoiceMaster

VoiceMaster Pro has...

Latency-free monitoring section -- a separate stereo monitoring circuit that allows the user to monitor vocal + FX loop (e.g. to add reverb) + mix played back from e.g. DAW and control levels of these three sources, removing latency. (VoiceMaster has no monitoring section.)

24/96 digital output option, using the same A/D card as Penta and Trak Master. (VoiceMaster has no digital connectivity.)

Backlit VU output meter (VoiceMaster has no VU meter)

Instrument input in addition to line and mic inputs.

Insert send and return, between mic pre and expander. (VoiceMaster has no insert.)

Vintage Harmonics section. (VoiceMaster has only tape saturation simulator.)

Routing flexibility -- Vintage Harmonics and Compressor order can be reversed, and compressor and EQ order can also be reversed, hence 4 combinations of these 3 sections possible. (VoiceMaster has fixed processing block order.)

2U chassis. (VoiceMaster is 1U.)

6-LED input meter. (VoiceMaster has only single LED.)

6-LED expander meter. (VoiceMaster has only 4-LED meter.)

New lower noise opto compressor.

New lower noise opto expander.

New Tube Sound section. (VoiceMaster has none.) VoiceMaster Pro circuit also includes new tone control feature and sexy, 3-colour large LED.

More flexible EQ - now has frequency shift for HF (10k or 14k) and depth of notch filter ("absence") can now be varied. (VoiceMaster has no HF shift and fixed depth of notch.)

New de-esser- now features the ISA 430 de-esser - includes the 'listen' function, so that the sidechain of the de-esser can be isolated, making setting up the frequency to de-ess very easy.

6-LED De-esser meter. (VoiceMaster has only single LED.)

L+R Monitor inputs and outputs. (VoiceMaster has none.)

FX mono send and stereo return. (VoiveMaster has none.)

Frequency response at maximum gain (40 dB) = 6 dB down at 10Hz and 1dB down at 200KHz.

Input Meter

6 LED peak reading meter is calibrated relative to 0 dBfs where 0 dBfs = +22 dBu (the maximum level which can be correctly converted by the optional internal A/D converter before overload occurs).

High Pass Filter

Roll off = 18 dB per octave 3 pole filter.

Frequency range = continuously variable from 30 Hz to 400 Hz measured at the 3 dB down point.

Optical Expander

Threshold hold range = -20 dBfs (0 dBu) to -60 dBfs (-40 dBu).

Expander ratio = 2:1

Attack time = 750

"Vocals that hit the spot."
Sound: I have had it in my rack for about 6 months. The pre-amp is very neutral which is why I bought it. All vocals sound great through this unit irrespective of the mic. Once you get to know how each feature works and responds, it is virtuly impossible to get a less than perfect vocal take irrespective of the genre or sex. Also handy for acoustic guitars and bass. Feature: The features I think make this a better choice than anything in it's price range. I would have preferred tubes, but to be honest the TubeSound is very responsive and sounds great. The de-esser works well. Quality: Built like a brick. I have no problem with the 'Made in China' lable. This thing is well constructed! Looks good too! Value: Exactly what I wanted. More features than anything in it's price bracket. Built well. Sounds killer. Very happy. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to use it. The Wow Factor: If ou want to knit-pick, the silver face would have been better another colour. That's just a personal thing though. So much kit is silver now days. It would have had a better identity if it was a different colour. Overall: this will remin one of my work horses until probably the next release.
Style of Music: All - what ever the customer wants.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Slick Vocals"
Sound: Pre amp is nice, must be care full not to overload. Dont use the vintage harmonics on vox, use it on bass, and heavy electric gits...there it sounds awsome. Have used it on RnB vocals, Rappers and rockers...sounds great on them all. The compressors is weak, not enuff control, so i insert an FMR RNC. Feature: Would like to be able to switch VU from input to output. Tube sound is subtle, but useful..Vintage harmonics more hate it or luv it. The desser is not to heavy handed, useful on a silibant vocalist. Quality: Very sturdy, hard piece, get pretty darn HOT tho The Wow Factor: Bigger, 2U Overall: This will stay in the rack for a LONG time
