Roland VariOS Open System Module

    Description
    Imagine having a software program that allows you to build complete audio-based productions in real time without draining your computer’s processor. That’s the idea behind VariOS. This open-architecture system combines intuitive V-Producer for VariOS software with a 1U hardware module to create the most powerful audio production system ever conceived. Create complete 6-part audio arrangements while freely manipulating pitch, time and formant. VariOS also comes with separate reverb, chorus and multi-effects so you can process and mix your samples in a plug-in like environment. A simple USB connection is all it takes to be up and running.
    Easy Audio Encoding and Arranging

    Building a song with VariOS is a simple process. First, browse your computer hard drive for .WAV and AIFF files. V-Producer can then quickly and automatically batch encode the data and transfer it via USB to the module. Once encoded and transferred, you can arrange tracks in V-Producer using simple drag-and-drop commands. Best of all, any audio file can be made to work with another, since VariPhrase permits independent manipulation of pitch, time and formant without unwanted artifacts.
    Twist Your Loops with GrooveScope

    V-Producer’s GrooveScope window takes reconstructing audio loops to new extremes. First, GrooveScope analyzes the audio and time-slices it into separate events. But here’s where things get really interesting: Not only can these events be re-arranged to create new loops, but each event’s pitch and time can be manipulated graphically without altering the original sound quality. All editing is non-destructive, so you’re free to experiment as much as you please—all in real time. And if you prefer tweaking with knobs rather than a mouse, just twist the VariOS module’s dedicated controls while scanning the audio loop, and V-Producer will faithfully capture all your moves.
