Re: VP-9000 VariPhrase Processor

>From what i saw, it's essentially a sampler, with real time controls over
pitch, timestretch, and other goodies.  Some examples they were showing at
the show included:

Taking a drum loop, you can adjust the quantizing in real time, altering
the loop's "groove", as they call it.  (Imagine using this on textural,
non-rythmic samples/loops?)

On a vocal phrase, your singer misses the last word of the phrase and goes
flat.  Well, with the VP-9000, you can just adjust the pitch of the last
word up and all is well.

The VP can assemble multiple samples in different tempos and pitches into a
coherent piece, in real time.

Also, intelligent harmonies can be done.

On board effects.

Like I said, the demonstrators were just doing their thing by rote, so the
setup involved with the VP to do what they were demo'ing might be more
complicated than they indicated...but nonetheless, a very interesting tool.
 If there is some looping function, where once you capture the sample, it
would start playing, and then you could do the VP magic in real time.
