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

V‑Vocal is a vocal processor that does pitch correction on notes and phrases, corrects timing, edits formants and dynamics, and can add vibrato.
The following topics describe using the V‑Vocal interface to process audio data. For information about inserting and managing V‑Vocal in SONAR, see V-Vocal clips (Producer and Studio only).
