Mixing ► V-Vocal clips (Producer and Studio only)

V‑Vocal is a vocal processor that integrates Roland’s VariPhrase technology into SONAR. Designed for monophonic sounds, especially vocals, V‑Vocal does pitch correction on notes and phrases, edits formants, adds vibrato if you want, and can also correct timing.
Access V‑Vocal by selecting audio data, and then inserting an instance of V‑Vocal. This creates a monophonic V‑Vocal clip, which means that the selected audio data is copied to create the V‑Vocal clip, while the original audio data is muted and left unchanged.
The following procedures explain how to manage V‑Vocal clips. For information about using V‑Vocal, see Using V-Vocal (Producer and Studio only).
To create a V‑Vocal clip
2.
Use the Track view V-Vocal > Create VVocal Clip command, or right-click the clip and choose VVocal > Create VVocal Clip from the Clips pane pop-up menu.
SONAR copies the selected audio data, inserts an instance of V‑Vocal on the copied data, and displays the new V‑Vocal clip (the copied audio data that contains an instance of V‑Vocal) where the selected audio data was, and opens the V‑Vocal interface. The V‑Vocal icon appears on the V‑Vocal clip. The original audio data is muted. No track data is moved or otherwise modified by creating a V‑Vocal clip. You can drag the V‑Vocal clip away from the original audio data if you want.

Use standard editing commands (nudge, drag-and-drop, slip-edit, etc.) to move, edit, or copy the clip. When you move a V‑Vocal clip, the original audio clip is revealed underneath it. You can unmute the original clip by using the Mute tool. You can also or create your own key binding to launch the V‑Vocal editor.
Note: Offline processing commands such as Process > Apply Effect > Normalize and Process > Apply Effect > Gain do not work on a V‑Vocal clip.

Right-click the V‑Vocal clip and choose VVocal > Bypass/Unbypass from the Clips pane pop-up menu.
When you bypass a V‑Vocal clip, you hear the original audio data that makes up the V‑Vocal clip without hearing any V‑Vocal processing. When Bypass is enabled, the Bypass button in the V‑Vocal interface appears red.
To bypass or unbypass all V‑Vocal clips in a track

Right-click a V‑Vocal clip and choose VVocal > Bypass All VVocal Clips from the Clips pane pop-up menu.
To delete a V‑Vocal clip

Select a V‑Vocal clip (the green clip with the V‑Vocal icon, not the original audio clip) and use the Edit > Delete command, or press DELETE on your keyboard.
Note: V‑Vocal commands can also be accessed by clicking the V icon in the V‑Vocal clip .
