VocaLive CS
Description
VocaLive provides singers and vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects, along with a range of tools to help you practice, sing and record. The effects can be combined into a chain of 4 processors and saved as presets. A collection of 55 presets is included to get you up and running immediately. VocaLive CS for iPhone comes with the Reverb effect, and upon registration the Double effect is unlocked. You can add 10 additional effects à la carte from a selection that includes Pitch Fix (for tuning or stylized FX), Choir, Morph, De-Esser, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter. Together these effects provide unparalleled creative processing power. With VocaLive you can process your voice, sing along to any song in your iTunes Music library — its Voice Cancel feature lets you remove existing vocals — and warm up with helpful vocal warm-up tools. Use the new 2-track recorder to sing over backing tracks, or expand the studio section (available via in-app purchase) to record whole songs. With the optional Mic Room feature, VocaLive also gives you the sound and color of 20 classic and modern studio microphone emulations, for even more control over your vocal tone. Ready to perform? VocaLive’s new Live Mode offers an optimized GUI specifically for live use. See your entire chain at a glance, with all the settings and controls you need in an easy-to-read format designed for the stage. Plus VocaLive offers an optional 4-track looper to easily create songs, harmonies and more on the fly. For best quality, use VocaLive with IK’s iRig Mic range of microphones, from handheld to studio condenser mic. Or connect your favorite 3rd party mic using our iRig Pre interfaces. But you can also have fun with it and record quick ideas using the built-in microphone on your iPhone or earbuds. Control your virtual rig just as easily as you would a traditional vocal multiFX with new iRig Stomp I/O integration, so you can change presets, control effects and more right from your feet. Or go wireless with iRig Blueboard, a wireless Bluetooth controller for basic control on the go. VocaLive also supports Core Audio and Core MIDI so you can use any compatible third-party interface or MIDI controller, and Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible, letting you use it alongside your favorite recording or songwriting apps. VocaLive CS for iPhone features: • Real time vocal processor + recording app • 4-processor vocal effects chain • 12 professional studio-quality effects available - 2 included • Mic Room microphone with 20 classic and modern studio mic emulations* • Includes metronome and vocal warm-up tools • 4-track looper section* • 2-track recorder (expandable to a full 8-track recording studio*) • Import and play songs directly from your Music library or computer • Voice Cancel lets you create sing-along backing tracks by removing the vocal track from existing recordings • Simultaneous multi-track recording • Studio section (included with Recorder) with waveform visualization and editing, touch-and-drag looping, normalization, punch-in/punch-out recording, simultaneous multi-track recording support and more • AutoFreeze (allows each track to have its own full effects chain) • Live Mode shows you your entire rig at a glance, with all the parameters you need on stage easily accessible • 55 presets included with 4 Favorites for fast recall • MIDI controllable and with built-in integration for iRig Stomp I/O, iRig Blueboard and other controllers • Audiobus & Inter-App Audio support • Full version available * available via in-app purchase IMPORTANT: AmpliTube users can add the effects processors from VocaLive to their AmpliTube app using the “Restore my purchases” option in the in-app menu.

good but
by Slurfentileeeeeee on 2020/09/14 19:09
the app is good but please update it to be used with airpods or wireless headphones, most of us don’t have wired headphones anymore
Please Update!
by bayley455 on 2020/08/17 00:30
I love this app and it only works on my old phone. There are no other singing apps like this where you can hear yourself!💚

Nice
Amazing, professional sounding app!
by Wireless please! 😂🤗🤗🤗 on 2020/08/09 22:23
Hi! Really love this app. Once you get to learn how it works, just amazing! One little thing though. Updating it to work wirelessly would be so great! A little primitive that corded headphones are needed in order to listen to the recording. Can you please, please make it wireless soon. Especially when Apple took out the physical audio input and output out of their new phones... 😩😩😩 Please update... 🤗🤗🤗
5 stars.... until now
by ikbrbbnl on 2020/05/12 15:31
This app is the best digital studio I’ve used by far, until yesterday when it stopped loading. When I click the VocaLive icon, the screen appears, but instead of the app starting a few seconds later, it shuts itself off. It may have something to do with the new iOS update, but whatever the issue is, I hope it’s fixed soon. I had only a few days ago deleted all of my other studio apps, and began relying solely on this app for all of my recordings, and now I’m munsunded.
Purchase after purchase required
by loopykoopa on 2020/05/01 16:25
Bought to go through a mini bose to amplify at home. They should say up front they have disabled any Bluetooth connections. Won’t recognize any outside equipment except their very expensive stuff. Can’t plug in anything but theirs. Couldn’t try any virtual mics without a 14.99 purchase only to find out it won’t go through the speaker. Not spending thousands to use a phone app for home live singing. Wish I could get a refund.
Please update
by Babydeion on 2020/02/17 11:07
Are you guys ever going to update this app! Its really a good app but i feel like you guys don update it enough! Please make updates frequently ❤️❤️❤️🎤🔥🔥 people like me depend on this app
Best Recording Studio App
by Random Rapper 2K14 on 2020/01/26 02:14
Great app and I’ve been using it since 2011. The Pitch Correction is lagging though
This app was great...at first:(
by tcupluv on 2019/12/27 20:18
Now I’m really annoyed it won’t let me get back in,everytime i Open the app it closes😡it’s unreliable and I’m so disappointed I always have to reinstall the app for it to work again and end up losing all of my songs ,FIX IT please!!!!!

I like the app, my only problem is the songs are alphabetical on my iPad and iPhone 6, however, they are not my iPhone X
Almost complete
by ryan2012rowdy123 on 2019/04/26 17:02
Add a 6-10 band visual eq and a visual compressor and this app is complete
App crashes
by MoonyynooM on 2018/09/30 00:13
I would’ve given this app a higher rate if it weren’t for the fact that this app spontaneously crashes. It’s super annoying. especially when you have recordings that you like on it. you will lose them eventually.
Doesn’t work with GarageBand
by JMcrav15 on 2017/12/22 02:13
I really like the app. The problem is: it is supposed to work with GarageBand, but it doesn’t!!! Every time that I try to record I lose all audio. It is buggy when you use it as an inter-app effect. I did pay for the upgrade, but it is not worth it. Not until the fix the compatibility issue. I am unable to use the app for the purpose that I paid for it. I want my money back!
update is better
by SchochJohn on 2016/11/08 18:11
I only use this app for the 'vocal remover'... I've been using this app nonstop for a few months now and I really love it! Anywho, it would be brilliantly amazing if you were able to save the vocals you removed from a song, and actually be able to hear the VOCALS ONLY. I was amazed when I found this app; it was something I needed in my life....
Rip off registration
by Iangowill4451 on 2016/08/27 04:02
Registration process will fail when you make in app purchases or multiple device purchases. you will be ripped off by this greedy company. Support is nonexistent.
Bad

Not for live gigs?
by Scotsmanlerxt on 2016/03/18 21:40
Why doesn't irig have an xlr output for live gigs? I tried a headphone to xlr adaptor, which worked but the sound was either distorted, weak or muffled. Not enough high end, definitely not flat response. Unusable on stage with Irig mic interface.
Couldn't figure out how to use it
by Missy88++ on 2016/02/26 02:30
I couldn't figure out how to use it and I just don't like this app
I love singing with the effects, wish it could record video
by Jgirl42 on 2015/11/29 04:09
I actually love singing with the effects, it is the best real time effects that I have found. I just wish I could record video at the same time. I hope they make this a possibility in the future!
Disappointed
by Gonzo_77 on 2015/11/01 22:56
You need this app in order to make your microphones work BUT when you go to actually record, you get hit with in app purchase requirement. Why don't they either tell you that the app purchase is required UP FRONT or just add the additional cost to the microphone interface! Feel like I was deceived.
Limited
by Guitar kith on 2015/10/03 19:05
The free version has such limited functionality that it's not worth getting in less you're going to do a bunch of in app purchases. In the stuff there is just not user-friendly at all. Most of these, apps operate pretty intuitively. Not this one.
Confusing
by Its great but..... on 2015/06/22 07:19
This app is sooo confusing. it's giving me a hard time and it's a bad app in general. I hate it
Horrible
by Ben jamm in on 2015/02/15 01:30
Space of space and waste time don't even bother.
This stuff is awful.
by Dick Lesh on 2015/01/16 02:00
For Christmas, my kids bought me this company’s iRig BlueBoard (foot pedal), iRig Midi Interface and iRig Microphone together with a suite of relevant software (AmpliTube, etc.) Nothing worked. And, perhaps I should explain that for 40 years I was a professor of mathematics and cognitive science at Northwestern, UMass, Purdue, and Indiana Universities - as well as being a software developer and experienced user of computer-based technologies. I’ve now retired and play a harmonica in several local bands (blues, country, rock, bluegrass). I mention this only to make it clear that I’m not an inexperienced user of these kinds of technologies. When I first experienced problems with IK Multimedia’s gadgets and software, I contacted their tech support people, and all they did was to tell me to read their manuals. I did this. And, to prove that I read the manuals thoroughly, I went though one of the manuals and make line-by-line editorial comments pointing out how nearly every sentence was either: (1) unhelpful, (2) completely unclear, (3) incomplete, or (4) completely wrong (in the sense that what was said simply wasn’t accurate). Then, I once again simplified my questions and contacted IK’s tech support people. This time, I did get a few suggestions about possible solutions to my problems. But, once again, virtually every sentence in this message was either: (1) completely unclear, (2) incomplete, or (3) completely wrong (in the sense that what was said simply wasn’t accurate). Also, the tech support person stated that some of the problems that I confronted could only be solved by purchasing more equipment that performed functions that IK Multimedia’s web site claims that their products are intended to do. Next, I tried going to IK Multimedia’s web site to see if there were other ways to get technical support. The contact numbers that were given reported that “the tech support lines were down.” And now, three days later, “the lines are still down." I’ve now seem to have no options except to ask for my money back on these purchases. … If you want to get a quick verification of what I’ve said, try downloading the things that are called “users manuals” for IK Multimedia’s products. The shortcomings will be obvious. These “users manuals” are not really users manuals at all. The simply describe what the products claim to do, but they give almost no information about how you (the user) could actually do any of these things. Also, these “users guides” contain a bunch of nearly identical photographs which contribute almost nothing to the meaningfulness of the text. … In more than 40 years of using a lot of computer-based tools, I’ve never encountered anything this bad in terms of overstated claims, completely useless “users guides”, and dismal tech support.
It's needs work
by Louisianimal75 on 2015/01/11 22:43
It needs a lot of work , there's many bugs. it's also says register to use the fx & when I registered it did the same thing. I wouldn't want to buy this app if it doesn't work well on the free one . please fix I am upset 😡
Giving me a hard time since Update with mixer last year
by Aitanagirll on 2015/01/06 01:46
Ever since the update with the new mixing system with this app, I have not been able to use vocalive free the way I use to.. It's been since the summer. This app would freeze and I would hear distortion while recording and playing back the track I've recorded.. Evening upgrading to a new device, I was still having problems. This app was updated recently, so, I thought this app would work better knowing it's now compatible with IOS 8. But, sadly, I still have the same problems.. Doing what Customer service told me as well didn't work either.. I am giving up on this app.. 😞
Got one star because I can't give less
by Sam thee ham on 2014/12/15 06:54
This app is literally garbage. It doesn't do anything as it's advertised for. It got me so mad that I actually wen out of my way to write a review. Spent my time trying to get it to work and it never did. Be wise and don't waste your or space downloading this crap.

Kool Kidz Icon!!!
by Rick7777777 on 2014/09/18 05:47
You get 5 stars when the icon changes. It looks like a bunch of 90s moms made this app icon to deter their children from smoking or something. It's a Chucky Cheese icon. It conjures imagery of Jazzy Jeff and denim vests. I hate this icon, it is a nightmare. Many celebrities have made mention that they think the app is good, but the icon is frightful. The president has signed a bill into law that you must make a better icon. The app is good, except the keyboard is super low-res. get it iOS8ier. I would like to see a more sophisticated noise filter. Otherwise, the app is a flash of human brilliance an amazing step forward in mobile musicianship. I love it. This icon is agony. Gigantic! Gigantic! Gigantic! A big, big love!
No Way
by Ant.A. on 2014/08/16 07:10
This app was good until it stole my money. I did the in app purchase for $17.99 and had full access. Created a project and now it's telling me to use the feature I have to purchase it as if I didn't purchase already. I want it fixed or my money back!!!
Awesome APP but...
by Lori413 on 2014/08/14 02:04
To get rid of help bubbles i pressed "?"-worked for me. I have problem with recording after update with standard mic. Lost volume when recording. Now I have to set input as 11 and record volume on track at 1. Results are not that great. I have been using this app for over 1 yr and payed for 8 track in app purchase. I am disappointed after sending 2 emails to IK I got NO reply. Please fix and update again! I truly love the app the way it was before.
in-app purchase warning
by labyrinthines on 2014/07/23 21:51
The app is prone to crash and have bugs but it functions in a useful way. I never had a problem until I purchased the recorder in-app purchase (as I didn't want the full app and only that one feature). The app loaded my purchase and it was fine, however, when I closed out of the app and opened it back up again, the recorder feature was gone and it was asking me to buy the feature again. Wow, thanks for that! All of the in-app purchases are starting to reek of scam. Be wary with this app.
This update is broken.
by TheChanticleer on 2014/07/23 20:23
New update is broken. Everytime I open the app, I have to ‘Restore In-App Purchases’ to get the features I had purchased before. Also, the mic cannot be monitored when playing tracks in the ‘Song’ area.
Feedback
by Tivyz on 2014/07/22 08:26
Auto-tune could be made a little bit better. App wont close when i click out of it, so i have to switch off my itouch. I see there has been new changes and updates to this app. I see it is still having truble with it. Please continue to update it! Thank u
Was great but...
by j_mayer1795 on 2014/07/14 00:05
Ever since I updated to iOS 7.1 this app can't record any new material! This was my saving grace after a long work day and I'm so upset I can't record anything else :/ PLEASE fix this issue ASAP
I'm
by ePanda on 2014/05/25 12:37
Even after giving it more than a fair chance, by making an in-app purchase, I still have yet to see this app do things as advertised. I can't believe I got fooled into one of those cheaply made, quick buck making, apps. The only way they would get 5 stars from me is if they refunded my money promptly, which I would gladly due.
Plz fix
by Phantom313 on 2014/05/01 01:02
The microphone won't work all of a sudden on the app....... Plz fix I only can hear music it won't allow mic to work tho
No directions no way to erase recording

Awsome
by Mak@19 on 2013/11/10 16:35
I have used this app which has gave me the real mic experience that I always wanted. I also like how you can email, and upload your tracks to soundcloud. Its neat to also be able to buy editing tools as you go.

Instantly crashing in iOS 7.0
by Supersonicarl on 2013/09/20 12:14
I like this app but when I updated my iPhone to iOS 7, it hasn't work since then! It kept on crashing right from the initial loading screen just after you tap and open the app. I use it a lot so please fix it asap.
Nice App!
by Lyrical Max on 2013/09/10 18:41
I love this app! There should be more effects for the voice than just reverb, but for a singer/songwriter......it's nice.

What did you do to the microphone quality??
by Evfan on 2013/06/22 06:21
Built in microphone quality changed. Not as good. Needs to be corrected. Have to put input to max to hear yourself.

JimBo
by DrBozman on 2013/03/24 16:50
Basically it's a teaser. Doesn't do what it says unless you buy the app for $19.99 which, is still cheaper than a Boomerang at $380. They should have trials because this led me to find other brands of apps HINT!!! Not sure if ill buy this but seems good but a bit pricy.
Dammit
by Karlipants on 2013/03/15 18:36

No support for mic/phone devices
by Mrdelurk on 2013/01/05 09:33
Had a mic/phone for Skype but I guess IK wants to sell their iRig as only the noisy internal mic is supported besides iRig. If I could tell whether Morph can deepen my voice to a nice bass I'd consider buying both, but there's no way to try, only to buy. Oh well, I spent 5 minutes and wasted no money. Fine.
Ugh
by Lalalalalalalalalaverybored on 2012/12/12 04:40

it need to support Facebook sign in
by 보랏빛카카오 on 2012/11/16 12:18
most of soundcloud user i think they sign in FaceBook account, and me either. i want this app support Facebook sign in feature.
Interesting.
by HookKickQueen on 2012/11/15 02:04
This app is pretty cool. I guess there are some things that I am confused about. Like when u use your apple headphones( no normal mic so I'm not sure if it does the same thing) and u turn it on full volume there's this awful noise. But I have to say, this is still REALLY COOL!!!!!😏
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
by Ray96m on 2012/10/19 02:20
LISTEN EVERYONE!! With the new metronome and the "COPY" feature, you can import vocals DIRECTLY into GarageBand, and still keep the timing right!!! Thanks for the update! Note: you have to create a vocal track in GarageBand and then paste the copied vocalive track. This is good for people who don't want to buy expensive mics, and still maintain quality sound other than default Garageband vocal effects. Update: I had to take away a star because the new update crashes on iPod.
How do you keep from running in the background?
by Roger428s on 2012/10/16 02:06
It took a long time to learn hot to keep the app from ruining in the background and there does not seem to be a way in the upgrade. I love the app though!!
Glad I'm using the free version
by odepaj on 2012/10/12 15:26
The app is really great, when it works. It seems every couple of days the app stops working and I have to delete it and re-download it. I've got +15 emails thanking me for registering the app because I keep having to go through everything to set it all back up again. Using and saving presets is pointless because I lose them everytime the app decides to stop working. Thankfully their other apps don't seem to be as problematic, but I'm glad I ended up purchasing an AmpLink+ instead of the iRig
All I Need!!!!!
by Gmonillc on 2012/10/10 20:35
It Amaze Me How You Could Give This App A 1 star,Probably Cause You Don't Know Diddly Squat About Audio.This App Is A The Top When It Comes To It's Main Objective And That Is Having It Always At Your Reach Without Have To Carry Around A Ton Of Hard Racks Slash Software,You Can Not Beat This Deal At All,Go To Sam Ash Or The Guitar Center And Spend What You Want To Spend....This Is A Great App For My Budget#GetOverIt

4 track recorder only a few days
by hazeleyepro on 2012/07/05 15:24
I bought the extra tracks 2 times it lasted a few days then it was gone. Its asking me to buy the 4 tracks again. I have the receipts for them. I think something illegal is going on. Its a shame because I love the idea of this app.
Has potential but needs work
by Some guy with a guitar on 2012/07/04 12:34
When I got my iRig mic I downloaded this app, bought a few effects , and everything seemed to work. But the next time I opened the app none of my effects worked! Seems I'm not the only one having this problem either...
Not happy
by Bailey Clark on 2012/06/22 20:18
I hot this app and bought a bunch of effects and a irig mic and low and be hold it won't work at all none of my effects work at all.... I'd like my money back of possible or at least fix it and make it easier to use or something...
Good app!
by mslelgr8 on 2012/06/08 13:22
I love to record music and this app works perfectly, but I did have to buy the four track to record my music. However I bought a new mic the other day and I was so excited to see if it worked with Vocalive and it didn't.... I am so angry!! It makes me mad that you can only use the Irig with the app. And I LOVE this app!
Please improve !
by SongDr. on 2012/04/30 17:41
I like the way this app works. It would be more useful to serious musicians if the reverb was not so noisy. Keeps this app from being taken serious.

App keeps crashing and says unable to connect .. For it's own reasons. hope this app has a update ~ also would be cool to e-mail the songs that are made .. Oh and why not watch a short video to collect points to unlock effects hmm that's a good ideal yea?, well hope this app works soon! ;)

But the open in function doesn't work and sometimes I can't edit the effects. Fix these issues and come out with a new update more often
Great sound and functionality
by Brian63664 on 2011/12/27 00:09
I'm giving this 4 stars simply for the fact you can't delete a track you recorded. You have to record over it like you would of you had a old 4 track tape recorder. This is not a tape recoder and should not be that hard to delete a track you recorded so you can try again. But other then that, I got to say they did a great job on this app! Sound is great no latency unless using the high end plugins. Revered works great, bit would like to see more options. Other then it's limitations I recommends buying this app. Cheaper to buy the pro other then Getting the lite and having to buy all the ad ons make it 3x more costly. Have fun!
Horrible
by jfmusica on 2011/12/23 02:01
If you are a Pro don't waste your money, is a very noisy application, I tested in my professional audio, with my Pro Tools, etc.. and even using the headphones sometime you feel the noise, like a motor running, is horrible. Better to use a Proffesional effect....
Nice
by Plague4u on 2011/12/19 23:08
Good but should be set up to built in mic automatically.
Greedy
by Chac of Jin on 2011/11/12 23:07
I have this on my iPad and they just released and iPad version of this app but iPad user have to pay another $20 for it on top of the $60 mic for the app.I will never buy another product from this greedy company again and will share my contempt with my fellow musician so they avoid you too. Way to build a loyal consumer base. Shame on you IK Multimedia.
Bad :(

Won't let me record
Lovely
by RonStark on 2011/09/09 06:39
It's simple and does a great job. I received a voice over narration assignment and, using an iRig mike, read the entire script using this software and sent the tracks to the producer directly over email. The narration was edited and cut and done! For quick demos, fast takes, there is nothing like this. I would like to see a graphic EQ so I could adjust the highs and lows of my finished product with setting that I can save so my takes all sound the same day after day. Bravo! You made great stuff for this VO artist.
Best simple but powerful recording app anywhere
by Safonz on 2011/09/02 21:07
This app deserves so much more credit. I have downloaded every other multi track device with "effects" out there and this blows everything out. And no you don't need IRig, the iPhone mic is killer. You have to spend 5 bucks on the multitrack but so worth it. 5 stars all around, buy this app!!!
Ladys and Gentlemen, start your pocketbooks!
by the biggest kahuna on 2011/08/13 00:58
I have to say that I absolutely hate the fact that I have to use the iRig Mic with the program, I got the mic for the convenance factor, but didn't know that I would be limited to that, knowing that it's a digital connection I thought it would easily except one of my very high quality usb mics, but no go, and with it's own mic, you start to getting into the functionality and realize that there are huge chunks missing, but this is easily fixed with your wallet, but to put sucky on top of sucky, the in app purchase will let you purchase an upgrade that won't work unless you purchase other items to upgrade your upgrade... confused, buy this app and you won't be anymore, ugh, did I mention that I bought iRig Mic to use with VocaLive on my iPad and there isn't an iPad version, and believe me there is a Huge difference. I have iRig on the iPhone and iPad and registered the product through the iPhone version, and went ahead and made some upgrades and decided to go ahead and play around with it a little bit on the iPad, opened it up, all's well, it asked for my user ID and password, excepted, NONE of the purchases transferred, if I wanted them on the other device I had to buy them on the iPad, ugggg, but I have to say that it is tremendously better on the iPad, and that's what pains me about VocaLive on the iPhone, me or anyone else would be stupid to buy the in app purchase upgrades for this iPhone version, it would be a total waste of money. Please stop selling us short and draining us, make this app universal, and offer some bundles for God sakes
Not bad
by ChildofGod24 on 2011/08/11 22:05
The FX are pretty neat. My only criticism is it keeps crashing.
Engine is GREAT / User interface needs work
by MHamner on 2011/08/07 03:56
First thing is first: CHANGE THE ICON. I passed this app over for months and months because I didn't want to download something that wouldn't help me as a songwriter. Whoever wrote the program's engine is the real hero. Ultra low latency, great lush effects and I love the ability to save your own presets. Possibly the beat engine out of all the other apps I've been downloading for the last 2 years. However, the interface needs some serious work in the navigation and chaining of effects. I can't figure out the relationship between the favorites and the presets. The screen I'm in doesnt tell me. Bottom line, the navigation needs work and maybe the entire interface needs a refresh to be taken more seriously. Its gotta start with that barbie doll / American idol wanna-be icon. Rip a page out of Sonoma wireworks 4 track app. It's nice and clean and at the end of the day, simplicity with a great engine wins, not just one or the other. Market this as an alternative to Sonoma's 4 track recorder and they'll finally have some competition.
BAD
by Anna19420 on 2011/08/07 03:11

T-racks
by bthemanofmenforall on 2011/07/16 19:08
I wish Ik multimedia would make a T-racks app for mastering.
Amazing, professional sounding app!
by Wireless please! 😂🤗🤗🤗 on 2020/08/09 22:23
Hi! Really love this app. Once you get to learn how it works, just amazing! One little thing though. Updating it to work wirelessly would be so great! A little primitive that corded headphones are needed in order to listen to the recording. Can you please, please make it wireless soon. Especially when Apple took out the physical audio input and output out of their new phones... 😩😩😩 Please update... 🤗🤗🤗
5 stars.... until now
by ikbrbbnl on 2020/05/12 15:31
This app is the best digital studio I’ve used by far, until yesterday when it stopped loading. When I click the VocaLive icon, the screen appears, but instead of the app starting a few seconds later, it shuts itself off. It may have something to do with the new iOS update, but whatever the issue is, I hope it’s fixed soon. I had only a few days ago deleted all of my other studio apps, and began relying solely on this app for all of my recordings, and now I’m munsunded.
update is better
by SchochJohn on 2016/11/08 18:11
I only use this app for the 'vocal remover'... I've been using this app nonstop for a few months now and I really love it! Anywho, it would be brilliantly amazing if you were able to save the vocals you removed from a song, and actually be able to hear the VOCALS ONLY. I was amazed when I found this app; it was something I needed in my life....
VocaLive song player
by Amorgon on 2019/08/16 23:57
I like the app, my only problem is the songs are alphabetical on my iPad and iPhone 6, however, they are not my iPhone X
Doesn’t work with GarageBand
by JMcrav15 on 2017/12/22 02:13
I really like the app. The problem is: it is supposed to work with GarageBand, but it doesn’t!!! Every time that I try to record I lose all audio. It is buggy when you use it as an inter-app effect. I did pay for the upgrade, but it is not worth it. Not until the fix the compatibility issue. I am unable to use the app for the purpose that I paid for it. I want my money back!
Please Update!
by bayley455 on 2020/08/17 00:30
I love this app and it only works on my old phone. There are no other singing apps like this where you can hear yourself!💚
Please update
by Babydeion on 2020/02/17 11:07
Are you guys ever going to update this app! Its really a good app but i feel like you guys don update it enough! Please make updates frequently ❤️❤️❤️🎤🔥🔥 people like me depend on this app
App crashes
by MoonyynooM on 2018/09/30 00:13
I would’ve given this app a higher rate if it weren’t for the fact that this app spontaneously crashes. It’s super annoying. especially when you have recordings that you like on it. you will lose them eventually.
good but
by Slurfentileeeeeee on 2020/09/14 19:09
the app is good but please update it to be used with airpods or wireless headphones, most of us don’t have wired headphones anymore
This app was great...at first:(
by tcupluv on 2019/12/27 20:18
Now I’m really annoyed it won’t let me get back in,everytime i Open the app it closes😡it’s unreliable and I’m so disappointed I always have to reinstall the app for it to work again and end up losing all of my songs ,FIX IT please!!!!!
Best Recording Studio App

Great app and I’ve been using it since 2011. The Pitch Correction is lagging though
Rip off registration
by Iangowill4451 on 2016/08/27 04:02
Registration process will fail when you make in app purchases or multiple device purchases. you will be ripped off by this greedy company. Support is nonexistent.
Almost complete
by ryan2012rowdy123 on 2019/04/26 17:02
Add a 6-10 band visual eq and a visual compressor and this app is complete
Sing in tune with gaming headset
by Singrabbit on 2011/03/27 22:50
Finally it's there! I always thought how nice it would be to walk along the house with a headphone on and at the same time hear your own voice with reverb mixed into the track you're playing. Amplified singing or humming along the track in tune (if you can sing) is great for song practice or just for fun when you want to be a part of the track to. Headphones are great for that, and when other people hear you sing with Vocalive it may sound great cause of the fact that the singer can hear his or her own voice. And it doesn't have to be loud. As far as I know there's not (yet) a quality headset with a special iPhone plug for mic ànd sound (only the ones with mic in the cable for phonecalls). You have to buy a (hard to get) adapter for this purpose and a quality gaming headset. So the iRig mic is ok but when you want your hands free (when cleaning the house, cooking etc) a headset with a quality mic is a better idea.
In between!!
by gracesws on 2011/05/10 00:22
It's really a good and bad app at the same time!! The cool thing is that u can like here yourself like your speaking into a micro. It's really cool!! It's also cool how u can sing along with your face songs on your ipod and stuff! The part that gets annoying is how is squeaks really loud whenever you get loud or whatever. Also how you can't record and sing at the same time unless you set both at the right time but you still get confused!! But it's still really cool so that's why I'm giving it a 4stars cause I'm nice like that!! :)

Giving me a hard time since Update with mixer last year
by Aitanagirll on 2015/01/06 01:46
Ever since the update with the new mixing system with this app, I have not been able to use vocalive free the way I use to.. It's been since the summer. This app would freeze and I would hear distortion while recording and playing back the track I've recorded.. Evening upgrading to a new device, I was still having problems. This app was updated recently, so, I thought this app would work better knowing it's now compatible with IOS 8. But, sadly, I still have the same problems.. Doing what Customer service told me as well didn't work either.. I am giving up on this app.. 😞

Demo problems
by Krad22 on 2011/05/21 18:13
I really like this app, unfortunately the reverb stopped working for no reason. I would hope this would be a huge concern to a potential buyers like myself. I would have spent the 20$ as this is well worth it, but until something is done about the bugs, and glitches I cannot justify it. FYI the reverb would not work no matter what I did. I tried every setting in the app nothing. I closed and restarted the app several times nothing. Restarted my iphone4 nothing. The only thing to bring back the reverb was to delete, and reinstall the app.
in-app purchase warning
by labyrinthines on 2014/07/23 21:51
The app is prone to crash and have bugs but it functions in a useful way. I never had a problem until I purchased the recorder in-app purchase (as I didn't want the full app and only that one feature). The app loaded my purchase and it was fine, however, when I closed out of the app and opened it back up again, the recorder feature was gone and it was asking me to buy the feature again. Wow, thanks for that! All of the in-app purchases are starting to reek of scam. Be wary with this app.

I love singing with the effects, wish it could record video
by Jgirl42 on 2015/11/29 04:09
I actually love singing with the effects, it is the best real time effects that I have found. I just wish I could record video at the same time. I hope they make this a possibility in the future!
Good app!
by mslelgr8 on 2012/06/08 13:22
I love to record music and this app works perfectly, but I did have to buy the four track to record my music. However I bought a new mic the other day and I was so excited to see if it worked with Vocalive and it didn't.... I am so angry!! It makes me mad that you can only use the Irig with the app. And I LOVE this app!
Awesome APP but...
by Lori413 on 2014/08/14 02:04
To get rid of help bubbles i pressed "?"-worked for me. I have problem with recording after update with standard mic. Lost volume when recording. Now I have to set input as 11 and record volume on track at 1. Results are not that great. I have been using this app for over 1 yr and payed for 8 track in app purchase. I am disappointed after sending 2 emails to IK I got NO reply. Please fix and update again! I truly love the app the way it was before.
This app
by love mega jump on 2012/08/13 20:51
I really love this app and I also love to sing but I dont have any real mikes and stuff cus I get embarist in front of people I'm working on not being though but this app really is great it makes u feel really good about your singing but is is kinda noisy and u can't delete old recording
Awsome
by Mak@19 on 2013/11/10 16:35
I have used this app which has gave me the real mic experience that I always wanted. I also like how you can email, and upload your tracks to soundcloud. Its neat to also be able to buy editing tools as you go.
There are bad apps...and then there
by Captain Marvel 05 on 2011/07/01 02:56
It's almost impossible to adequately describe how horrible this app is. Not only is it frustrating to pull recorded tracks off the iPod and into iTunes to possibly burn onto a CD, but the so-called user manual is of no assistance. And speaking of assistance, when you finally do reach someone at the company to help, they tell you that tech support is outsourced and can only be accessed by e-mail. The microphone works well, but what good does that do if you can't access what you've recorded.
Kool Kidz Icon!!!
by Rick7777777 on 2014/09/18 05:47
You get 5 stars when the icon changes. It looks like a bunch of 90s moms made this app icon to deter their children from smoking or something. It's a Chucky Cheese icon. It conjures imagery of Jazzy Jeff and denim vests. I hate this icon, it is a nightmare. Many celebrities have made mention that they think the app is good, but the icon is frightful. The president has signed a bill into law that you must make a better icon. The app is good, except the keyboard is super low-res. get it iOS8ier. I would like to see a more sophisticated noise filter. Otherwise, the app is a flash of human brilliance an amazing step forward in mobile musicianship. I love it. This icon is agony. Gigantic! Gigantic! Gigantic! A big, big love!
Feedback
by Tivyz on 2014/07/22 08:26
Auto-tune could be made a little bit better. App wont close when i click out of it, so i have to switch off my itouch. I see there has been new changes and updates to this app. I see it is still having truble with it. Please continue to update it! Thank u
Best recording app actually
by leopreo on 2012/07/20 22:49
It's professional, has all its own effects lets you record and save with any type of music and customer support is really responsive and good
IOS ISsue?
by Ankh1972 on 2013/09/21 04:23
I would give this 5 stars if their was a Facebook share option and hope you change that soon..The app won't load since I updated IOS..
Hmm
by *Sweet Beauty* on 2012/03/15 09:47
App keeps crashing and says unable to connect .. For it's own reasons. hope this app has a update ~ also would be cool to e-mail the songs that are made .. Oh and why not watch a short video to collect points to unlock effects hmm that's a good ideal yea?, well hope this app works soon! ;)
How do you keep from running in the background?
by Roger428s on 2012/10/16 02:06
It took a long time to learn hot to keep the app from ruining in the background and there does not seem to be a way in the upgrade. I love the app though!!
it need to support Facebook sign in
by 보랏빛카카오 on 2012/11/16 12:18
most of soundcloud user i think they sign in FaceBook account, and me either. i want this app support Facebook sign in feature.
I'm
by ePanda on 2014/05/25 12:37
Even after giving it more than a fair chance, by making an in-app purchase, I still have yet to see this app do things as advertised. I can't believe I got fooled into one of those cheaply made, quick buck making, apps. The only way they would get 5 stars from me is if they refunded my money promptly, which I would gladly due.
Has potential but needs work
by Some guy with a guitar on 2012/07/04 12:34
When I got my iRig mic I downloaded this app, bought a few effects , and everything seemed to work. But the next time I opened the app none of my effects worked! Seems I'm not the only one having this problem either...
Interesting.
by HookKickQueen on 2012/11/15 02:04
This app is pretty cool. I guess there are some things that I am confused about. Like when u use your apple headphones( no normal mic so I'm not sure if it does the same thing) and u turn it on full volume there's this awful noise. But I have to say, this is still REALLY COOL!!!!!😏
Where's iPad app?
by The ChillRider on 2011/04/09 20:39
So OK, just bought the iRig mic to use with my iPad, but what a bummer - there's no iPad app. Sorry guys, but whats the point using this app on iPad (on your site you state that its compatible with iPad) just to have tiny user interface when there's all that available space. Bad, very bad. Specially knowing that it doesn't take a lot to redesign graphics for iPad.
4 track recorder only a few days
by hazeleyepro on 2012/07/05 15:24
I bought the extra tracks 2 times it lasted a few days then it was gone. Its asking me to buy the 4 tracks again. I have the receipts for them. I think something illegal is going on. Its a shame because I love the idea of this app.
Disappointed
by Gonzo_77 on 2015/11/01 22:56
You need this app in order to make your microphones work BUT when you go to actually record, you get hit with in app purchase requirement. Why don't they either tell you that the app purchase is required UP FRONT or just add the additional cost to the microphone interface! Feel like I was deceived.
No support for mic/phone devices
by Mrdelurk on 2013/01/05 09:33
Had a mic/phone for Skype but I guess IK wants to sell their iRig as only the noisy internal mic is supported besides iRig. If I could tell whether Morph can deepen my voice to a nice bass I'd consider buying both, but there's no way to try, only to buy. Oh well, I spent 5 minutes and wasted no money. Fine.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
by Ray96m on 2012/10/19 02:20
LISTEN EVERYONE!! With the new metronome and the "COPY" feature, you can import vocals DIRECTLY into GarageBand, and still keep the timing right!!! Thanks for the update! Note: you have to create a vocal track in GarageBand and then paste the copied vocalive track. This is good for people who don't want to buy expensive mics, and still maintain quality sound other than default Garageband vocal effects. Update: I had to take away a star because the new update crashes on iPod.
Greedy
by Chac of Jin on 2011/11/12 23:07
I have this on my iPad and they just released and iPad version of this app but iPad user have to pay another $20 for it on top of the $60 mic for the app.I will never buy another product from this greedy company again and will share my contempt with my fellow musician so they avoid you too. Way to build a loyal consumer base. Shame on you IK Multimedia.
Glad I'm using the free version
by odepaj on 2012/10/12 15:26
The app is really great, when it works. It seems every couple of days the app stops working and I have to delete it and re-download it. I've got +15 emails thanking me for registering the app because I keep having to go through everything to set it all back up again. Using and saving presets is pointless because I lose them everytime the app decides to stop working. Thankfully their other apps don't seem to be as problematic, but I'm glad I ended up purchasing an AmpLink+ instead of the iRig
I like the app
by Cody Ham on 2012/01/18 18:28
But the open in function doesn't work and sometimes I can't edit the effects. Fix these issues and come out with a new update more often
Not happy
by Bailey Clark on 2012/06/22 20:18
I hot this app and bought a bunch of effects and a irig mic and low and be hold it won't work at all none of my effects work at all.... I'd like my money back of possible or at least fix it and make it easier to use or something...
Singing
by WhitB23 on 2014/10/17 19:36
This is an awesome recording app!! The sound quality is really good use headphones though of course!! Lol thank you for this (:
Great app.
by Darabi on 2011/06/13 13:27
Yes, it is an iPod app. So graphically, it's an iPod app. With an irig mic, it's genius and fun. Just know, only a few presets come free. I purchased all of the fx possibilities and again, it's genius.
