"BACKGROUND VOCALS FOR EVERY KEYBOARDIST

For keyboardists in need of great background vocals, the new VP-7 vocal processor is ready to sing! Create harmonies instantly, from a single voice to a full-scale choir, with a microphone and a MIDI connection to the keyboard of your choice. It’s simple. Just select a sound type from the front panel, and play. The Human Voice section provides rich and expressive choral backing by just playing the keyboard — no singing required. The Vocal Designer section can automatically generate 2-voice or 3-voice backing harmonies based on the lyrics that you sing into the microphone. And for classic robot-voice effects, the Vocoder button lets you instantly sound like a vintage vocoder.

  • Generate vocal harmonies instantly — no vocal skills required
  • Dedicated buttons for instant access to the preset sounds
  • Four expressive Human Voice sounds, three Vocal Designer choirs, plus vintage vocoder,    echo, and reverb
  • Dedicated knobs for volume, mic level, harmony mix, and Ambience level
  • Bundled with DR-HS5 microphone (designed for Roland’s Vocal Designer products)

Ultimate Expression
The VP-7 lets you create “virtual vocals” with spoken or sung phrases from your own voice. Whether you need a basic harmony or perhaps a vintage vocoder sound, the VP-7 can deliver the interactive, expressive vocal backing you need. Play the desired harmony notes on the keyboard, and sing. You can even generate harmonies without singing at all — just play and let the VP-7’s Human Voice section do the vocalizing for you.

Easy Control
Operating the VP-7 couldn’t be easier. Even though the unit itself is compact, the dedicated buttons and knobs are large and clearly labeled. Four knobs provide instant control over volume, Mic level, Harmony mix, and Ambience level. Large front-panel buttons are provided for selecting the Human Voice type (Female Choir, Boys Choir, Gregorian Choir, and Jazz Scat), for selecting the Vocal Designer type (Duet, Trio 1, and Trio 2), for Bypass, and for activating the Vocoder section.

On Time, On Budget
The VP-7 can be used for a wide variety of musical applications. It’s ideal for musicians who perform alone or in small groups, for example, and who need an interactive, real-time backing chorus. The creative possibilities are vast, as are the time/money savings that this instrument can provide."

Quoted from Voice Council Magazine ;
"At A Glance: The Roland VP-7 is a vocal processer that is great for singers who also play keyboards. Combined with a microphone and a MIDI keyboard, it can be used to produce instant vocal harmonies to accompany your singing. The VP-7 comes bundled with Roland’s DR-HS5 microphone, which is specifically designed for singing keyboard players and optimised to work with the unit. It also has on-board reverb and echo effects for adding the finishing touch to your vocal harmonies.

High Notes: The VP-7 is well suited to both lead singers performing with keyboards and for keyboard players in bands wanting to add backing vocals to accompany a lead singer. It can be used with any microphone not requiring phantom power via its XLR input and it has outputs to connect to a PA and headphones. The device has various options for creating harmonies and effects. These are based on the lyrics that you sing into the microphone ranging from 2-voice harmonies to a full gospel choir sound. It also includes a selection of vocoder effects, which will no doubt be of interest to electronic music producers. In a live setting a foot controller can be used to switch the harmonies on and off during the performance and it can also be used without a microphone to create choral backing sound by just playing your keyboard though it.

Off Pitch: If you are not intending to use the bundled microphone, then you may feel the unit is quite expensive when compared to some of its competition. Also, although the harmonies work well, they do have a tendency to sound a little artificial at times.

A VoiceCouncil Reviewer Says: The VP-7 is simple to use with dedicated buttons for instant access to the preset sounds. There are also individual controls for volume, mic level, harmony mix, and ambience level. It has a good range of different harmony sounds that will suit most styles of music and the added inclusion of a vocoder gives an extra sonic option to enliven your music. The VP-7’s harmonies even work if you cannot sing in tune, which will no doubt appeal to non-singers who want to do backing vocals."
