The Boutique VP-03 Vocoder from Roland is a miniaturized version of the VP-330 Vocoder Plus, one of the most renowned vocoders ever made. The VP-03 brings together the worlds of synthesized sound and the human voice, using the latest Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB), Roland's newest modeling technology which models the original circuits of the VP-330 Plus to recreate the sound with authenticity. The VP-03 features the vocoder, human voice and string sounds on board, and includes its own gooseneck microphone. The unit is compatible with the optional DK-01 boutique docking case and the K-25m keyboard unit, which offers the same layout of the original, but in a reliable, low-cost, and highly stable design. Other features unavailable on the original include the 16 chord-memory setups, a voice step sequencer, and a built-in mini-speaker. The VP-03 can be powered via the included four AA batteries or via USB.
Voice Step Sequencer
The VP-03 includes a Voice Step Sequencer not included in the original VP-330, which allows you to input a single note, chord, or your voice into each of the 16 steps, with each step comprising up to six notes. The result is a distinctive rhythmic effect that brings dynamic motion to the VP-03. You can use a series of functions to change the order of steps within the sequence for unpredictable and inspiring results. Saving your best sequences to a computer via USB is easy using the backup/restore function
Another function not found in the original VP-330 is Chord Memory, which lets you play back chords using just one finger. With 16 locations available, you can quickly store and recall your favorite chords using one of the 16 step buttons. You can also create your own chords and save them into these locations, and back them up to your computer using the backup/restore function
Connect with External Gear
In addition to line and headphone outputs (both in mini-jack format), the VP-03 is equipped with a full-size XLR mic input. Simply connect the supplied gooseneck mic to fully unlock the VP-03's creative potential, using your voice (or any other sound) to filter and shape the onboard synthesized sounds. You can also connect the VP-03 to other devices, either through the standard MIDI IN/OUT ports or via a micro-USB connection that handles both audio and MIDI data
Optional K-25m Keyboard Unit
The VP-03 works especially well with the K-25m, an optional 25-note keyboard that takes your music-making to the next level. Once docked in the keyboard, the module's front panel adjusts to three positions for convenient access to the knobs and sliders
Battery or USB Power
Some of the best music is made away from the studio, so the Roland Boutique series runs on 4 x AA batteries, ready for when inspiration strikes. Alternatively, you can use the VP-03 with USB bus power. The VP-03 weighs just 33 oz (940g) with the batteries installed
USB Audio Interface for Direct Recording to Your DAW
Via its USB port, the VP-03 also functions as a high-quality 24-bit/96 kHz audio interface, providing a simple and reliable way of recording directly to your DAW application. You can keep your favorite settings and voice step-sequencer patterns safe too via the USB data backup function
