If ever there were a serious kazoo, this is it. Imagine holding the iPhone like a harmonica, humming into it, and out the speaker gushes a flute or saxophone. Now, imagine the response being so instantaneous that your voice feels like it “becomes” the instrument. Little kids, grownups, anyone, can immediately have loads of fun! For the more musically inclined, the Vocolo also offers a great outlet for rich improvisations.
"Music-making apps have come a long way since we started developing "voice to instrument" technology, but most have focused on playing around with other people's music," said Dr. John Jameson, Founder of Alto Research, LLC. "Our goal has always been to give everyone the power to immediately create and play their own music, and as the iPhone platform has gotten more robust, this release of Vocolo realizes that dream. It's very exciting."
With the Vocolo app you can also jam with pre-recorded backing loops, record sound on sound, and share your performances instantly. It’s a free app available for the iPhone (for iOS 6.0 and up, optimized for iOS 7) on the App store in wide release on Thursday, December 5th.
