The Worlds #1 Audio Alignment Plugin

VocALign Project 3 is the basic version of Syncro Arts' industry-standard audio alignment program which tightly aligns one audio signal to another in seconds. There's no longer need to manually align your audio, VocALign will save you hours of studio time so you can focus on what's important, being creative and hitting deadlines.

Using VocALign is simple. Just capture a ‘Guide’ signal with the right timing, capture a 'Dub' signal to be aligned and VocALign instantly generates a new aligned Dub which is returned to your DAW.’

Quietly legendary, VocALign's early life included use in music production ranging from Shania Twain and Steely Dan to Black Eyed Peas; as well as in popular TV shows such as Friends and Seinfeld and in blockbuster films including Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.

Key Features

  • Instantly edits one audio signal to match the energy patterns in another audio signal.
  • Works with voice, musical instruments and sound effects.
  • Provides time-saving and quality benefits for ADR, tightening double-tracked vocals and backing harmonies, foreign language dubbing, etc.
  • Plug-ins for most popular DAWs plus a stand-alone version.
  • Full ARA2 (Audio Random Access) support for an even faster and easier workflow with compatible DAWs.

How Does Vocalign Work?

VocALign works by applying varying amounts of time stretching or compression to one signal (called the ‘Dub’) to make its energy peaks and troughs align in time with a ‘Guide’ signal. It does this in three main steps as shown in the block diagram below.

  1. VocALign analyses the captured Guide and Dub audio signals using identical spectrum analysers to produce time-varying energy patterns.
  2. Then it uses advanced pattern recognition techniques to examine the energy patterns and determine the best way to ‘warp’ the time structure of the Dub signal so that its energy pattern is matched to that of the Guide. The time-warping path describes the best time-distortion of the Dub for matching to the Guide.
  3. The time-warping path is fed to an audio editing processor that time-compresses and expands the Dub audio to create the aligned version based on the path. It is this edited version of the Dub that is returned to the audio editing software for the desired use.
