The industry standard plugin for aligning audio, VocALign Project 3 takes two separate vocal performances and effortlessly aligns their timing in seconds. Don’t waste your time manually tightening vocals, VocALign saves hours of tedious editing so you can focus on what’s important, being creative and hitting deadlines.

 

Instantly Add Punch And Clarity To Your Vocals

Whatever the musical genre, VocALign is the must-have plugin for working with stacked vocals, bringing your performances together so they sound clean and focused. Also if you’re working in audio post production VocALign is an essential tool for ADR, enabling dialogue to be instantly replaced.

Using VocALign with your DAW is simple. Just capture a ‘Guide’ signal with the right timing, capture a ‘Dub’ signal to be aligned to the guide, VocALign performs the alignment and a new aligned Dub is generated and returned to your DAW.

Main Features

  • Instantly edits the timing of one audio signal to match its energy patterns with those in another signal
  • Works with vocals, musical instruments and sound effects
  • Provides time saving and premium quality results when tightening double tracked vocals and backing harmonies, ADR, foreign language dubbing, etc
  • Plug-ins for most popular DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic, Studio One and Cubase Pro (See Features)
  • Full ARA2 (Audio Random Access) support for an even faster and easier workflow with compatible DAWs

HOW DOES VOCALIGN WORK?

VocALign works by applying varying amounts of time stretching or compression to one signal (called the ‘Dub’) to make its energy peaks and troughs align in time with a ‘Guide’ signal. It does this in three main steps as shown in the block diagram below.

  1. VocALign analyses the captured Guide and Dub audio signals using identical spectrum analysers to produce time-varying energy patterns.
  2. Then it uses advanced pattern recognition techniques to examine the energy patterns and determine the best way to ‘warp’ the time structure of the Dub signal so that its energy pattern is matched to that of the Guide. The time-warping path describes the best time-distortion of the Dub for matching to the Guide.
  3. The time-warping path is fed to an audio editing processor that time-compresses and expands the Dub audio to create the aligned version based on the path. It is this edited version of the Dub that is returned to the audio editing software for the desired use.

Note: In the above diagram, the spectrum analyser colours match those used in the VocALign screen for Guide and Dub audio signals and controls.
