(1) What devices is ImproVox compatible with?
ImproVox is compatible with all iPads, iPhone 5/4/4S/3GS, and new iPod touch models with 32GB or 64GB capacity. If you are using ImproVox on an iPod Touch, you must have a headset with a microphone, as there is no on-board microphone on these devices.
MuseAmi recommends that you purchase ImproVox with the device you plan on using it on. This will ensure that you do not purchase ImproVox for a device that is not capable of running it.
Headphones are required to use ImproVox. (This is to prevent feedback.)

ImproVox takes your vocal input and tunes and harmonizes it to a specific key, style, and scale.
To raise the level of harmony voices, move the touch point around the left pad. Moving the touch point to a far corner in each quadrant will raise the level of that specific harmony voice. To raise the level of all three, move the touch pad towards the top left corner of the pad.
Keys can be selected by tapping left and right on the key selector, or using your voice. To set the key with your voice, tap "use voice" and then sing a note for 2 seconds. This will automatically set the key to that note.
Harmonization style can be changed via the style images at the bottom of the screen. Changing the style will alter the voicing of chords when harmony voices levels are engaged.
The first image corresponds to "choral harmonies". This will create traditional triads over your voice, with some slight variations on certain chords. The microphone image corresponds to "pop" harmonies. This will create closer, dense harmonies with 9th chords. The barber pole will create "barbershop quartet" harmonies with a leaping bass harmony and dense dominant chords. The saxophone corresponds to "jazz" harmonies. This will create dense, jazz-like 7th chords. The Bach image corresponds to "baroque" harmonies that create minimal parallel motion and large intervalic distances between voices.
Mood can be changed by tapping the happy and sad face in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The happy face corresponds to major keys, and the sad face corresponds to minor Keys. Changing this will alter both your tuned input voice, as well as the harmony voices you add on top.
Effects can be engaged by moving the touch point around the right pad. By default, traditional effects are loaded onto the pad. To engage abstract effects, double tap the right pad, and the labels and effects will change.
Reverb can be added by moving the touch point into the top right quadrant of the left pad. Moving the touch point towards the top right corner will increase the size and volume of the reverb.
Echo can be added by moving the touch point into the bottom left corner of the right pad. Moving the touch point towards the bottom left corner will increase the feedback and wet/dry mix of the echo.
Stutter, located in the upper left quadrant of the left pad, adds a beat-synched tremolo effect to your voice. Moving the touch point towards the top left corner will increase the beat division and intensity of the tremolo.
Cavern, located in the bottom right corner of the left pad, adds a mix of all other traditional effects at once time. Moving the touch point towards the bottom right corner will increase the the tremolo intensity, echo feedback and volume, and reverb size and volume.
Bit Crusher, located in the top right corner of the left pad, adds a lo-fi distortion effect to your voice. Moving the touch point towards the top right corner will down sample your voice at discrete degrees.
Flanger, located in the top left corner of the left pad, adds a metallic modualtion effect to your voice. Moving the touch point towards the top left corner increases the intensity of the effect.
Ring Modulator, located in the bottom left corner of the left pad, adds a robotic distortion to your voice. Moving the touch point towards the bottom left corner increase the intensity and pitch of the effect.
Auto-Wah, located in the bottom right corner of the left pad, adds a guitar-like wah wah sound to your voice. Moving the touch point towards the bottom right corner increases the intensity of the effect.
