  • Advanced Tool Kit

    I'm almost certainly going to try out the VPDI. I have a few App Questions:
    1. Is there an estimated release date for the future advanced features in the app?
    2. Will this come as a bundle or a la cart per feature?
    3. Any idea on the cost?

    Hey Aaron,
    The Pro Toolkit should be releasing in the next two weeks if everything goes according to plan.

    The Toolkit will be a bundle of features all across the app for a one-time price of $29.99. The Toolkit will include the following features and more as they are continually developed.

    -Advanced VP Creation Mode
    -Multi-band Compression
    -Advanced Voiceprint Creation Tools
    -Advanced Manual Feedback Controls
    -Dedicated VP EQ
    -Advanced Save Options

    Pro Toolkit users will also have access to Pro Tips and Tricks and even early access to beta releases.

    Once the Toolkit is available, there will be a section in the app that shows you a little sneak peek of the different features.

      Very nice. Thanks, Caleb. I am looking forward to trying out the VPDI.

        Just so it's clear, the individual VoicePrint EQ and Compressor functions in this demo video [URL]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8SNP89T3AY[/URL] are going to cost an additional $30?

          The app in the video is a Beta version with the Pro Toolkit available. So, yes, for $30 you get a full multi-band compressor and additional VP EQ, and the other features mentioned above.

          These are more complicated features in an already complex app, so we've put them into a package for the "pro" users.

            I think it’ll be worth dipping into the tip jar for that level of tone tweaking. Thanks.

                They are not available yet and they have made changes to the roll out of the advanced features. Rather than an additional charge for the whole kit all at once, it sounds like they will be rolling out additional features one by one at no additional charge.

                please correct me if I’m wrong, Caleb.

                  how would I go about voice printing a violin and a dobro? I play multiple instruments and was planning to use the voiceprint DI for all of them (rather than keeping the Venue DI on pedalboard).

                  thanks,

                    That is exactly right, Aaron. The advanced features will be released one by one at no charge. We are fine-tuning the interface for some of them so that they will be easier to use.

                    Dinglehopper, our team out in Nashville had some great results with the VPDI on a Dobro with an artist. Here is what they said about it:

                    "He showed me how he mic’d his dobro in the studio and that’s where we pointed the phone mic (see red circle in attached photo)

                    I held the phone about 5-6” over that spot as he played while seated. We left the phone in that exact same spot for all the steps. And for both dobros we got a GREAT sounding VP on the first try! During step one, instead of tapping, (he) just strummed open chords for the entire step. Step 2 he strummed one open chord and then some fretted chords up and down the neck. Step 3 he picked all the individual strings open then a few fretted strings up and down the neck. Step 4 he played scales. It sounded amazing"

                    [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"large","data-attachmentid":9646}[/ATTACH]

                    This Dobro had a Fishman. The second one had a magnetic pickup which they said needed a bit more EQ to get the final sound, but it still sounded great.

                        I would imagine that the Violin would be similar to the Dobro. So you would mic it in a similar way to how you would record the instrument, making sure that the phone is far enough away so that you don't clip the phone mic. You may have to get someone to hold the phone for you, or you could use a phone holder that attaches to a mic stand. We haven't done as much with the Violin yet, but the limited tests have worked well.

                          would I play entirely pizzicato to make the IR, or would I bow any of it? if so, which portion of the print generation would I want to bow?

                          thanks,

                            That's hard to say. I think you would definitely want both styles played when recording the Voiceprint. As a starting point, I would play Pizzicato for the parts where it says to play individual notes, then bow for the strumming section. You can mess around with different ways of doing it to see what works best. If you find something that works for you, let us know.
