Pitch Perfect with the Portable VT-12
As you sing, the Roland VT-12 uses its easy-view illuminated pitch meter to display your accuracy, brightening as you approach the correct pitch and darkening as you move further away. a great tool for vocal teachers, you can also listen to the correct pitch as guidance and when you sing this note correctly the note name will appear.
Practice a duet and the Roland VT-12 will detect the two voices simultaneously and display the note names. The three pitch-detection modes Mono Equal, Chord Equal and Chord Just allow you to choose what you wish the Roland VT-12 to detect. This is the perfect tool for duets, choirs or a cappella groups to check their harmonies.
As well as checking pitch the Roland VT-12 can also help you perfect your timing. the built-in metronome is easy to use, just select the tempo manually or with tap tempo. The tuner feature and metronome can work simultaneously providing you with a complete practice tool.
Vocal Lessons and Training
The publishing division of the highly respected Berklee College of Music, Berklee Press, have devised a book and accompanying audio tracks which are included with the Roland VT-12 vocal trainer. The vocal workouts are designed to teach physical stretches, breath control, vocal care whilst the warm-ups include key slides and descending fifth runs. The built-in practice songs include guide vocals and backing tracks in a variety of genres whilst minus-one backing tracks and multiple harmony pieces allow you to practice all your skills. For some of the exercises the Roland VT-12 is able to display the guide pitch and your pitch simultaneously.
World standard Concone Op. 9 Fifty Lessons classical voice exercises are also loaded onto the Roland VT-12. Each of the 50 lessons includes guide melodies and piano accompaniments fpor medium voice. if you prefer, you can turn off the guide melody and sing solo with the piano tracks.
Expand the VT Experience
It is easy to integrate extra devices into your vocal practice using the Roland VT-12's recording feature. Connect an MP3 or CD player to the REC In (stereo mini) jack and import your own content to one of the 10 memory locations. Each slot has up to 10 minutes of recording time. The Roland VT-12's user friendly systems make recording incredibly easy and allow you to record your voice over your user tracks and evaluate your performance with the Review button.
"The Roland VT-12 is an ideal integration of a tuner, recorder, metronome, and a comprehensive vocal method. The Roland VT-12 contains all of the elements required for vocal training in an easy-to-use, handheld device. There are a lot of different tools for other instrumentalists, but there's nothing like the Roland VT-12 because this is particularly for singers, and I think it's an indispensable tool for vocal training for teachers and students alike."
