Description of App: 

NOW WITH DIGITAL AUDIO SUPPORT, CORE MIDI INTEGRATION, AUDIO COPY/PASTE, RETINA DISPLAY UPDATE, RESTORE IN-APP PURCHASES AND EXPORT VIA SOUNDCLOUD AND FTP.

VocaLive provides vocalists with a suite of 12 real-time professional vocal effects along with a capable recorder for studio-quality sound in a portable package. The effects can be combined into a chain of 4 processors and saved as presets. A collection of up to 50 presets is included to get you up and running immediately.  VocaLive includes 5 Vocal Effects – Pitch Fix (for tuning correction or stylized quantization FX), Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (a formant shifter to change the tonal quality of the voice from subtle deepening to radical gender bending), De-Esser (to remove sibilance from the voice), and Double (by registering) – along with 7 Studio Effects – Reverb, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter – that together create the perfect vocal processing solution.  VocaLive gives you the ability to record vocals or other instruments (single or multitrack) with effects and a master section, sing along with your favorite iTunes song library (with a Voice Cancel feature for singing over songs with existing vocal tracks) and warm up your voice with the included Vocal Tools. VocaLive is an incredible professional vocal effects workstation that you can take with you anywhere.  For the best quality, use VocaLive on stage with IK’s iRig Mic. You can also have fun with it or record quick ideas using the built-in iPad mic, or with earbuds with a built-in mic.  Use a MIDI interface like iRig MIDI to control VocaLive “hands free” using your existing MIDI floor controller. VocaLive now supports Digital audio input devices so you can use any standard 30-pin/Lightning audio interface. With its 12 professional effects, Recorder and Vocal Tools, VocaLive is the most powerful vocal processing tool available so far on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad!  VocaLive features:

Accessibility Comments: 

I wouldn't call this app accessible. You can make things work if you're willing to tap around. Most of the buttons are not labelled or have obscure labels. It's doable if you think the fun is worth it!

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments: 

I would suggest to try the "lite" version before you decide to buy a full one. The tolerance threshold for different users is different, so you may want to try the free version first.
