Piapro Studio - Next Generation Vocal Editor

Create vocal parts easily just by entering melody and lyrics

Piapro Studio is a vocal editor that offers smooth operation and an intuitive interface to give you the freedom in production of vocal parts. Not only is there no limitation to bar numbers, Piapro Studio also impresses with its sync function that lets you check vocal parts directly with the produced music in your host application. There are also many parameters available that can be used to enhance singing expression and vocal styles. The “Lyrics Palette” of Piapro Studio allows you to easily input English lyrics with tricky syllable structure. Experience more creativity and freedom in vocal production with the seamless operation of Piapro Studio!

Select multiple singers and easily create choruses

You can select up to 15 singers in Piapro Studio, and therefore easily create choruses and singer ensembles. The “Layer Function” lets you display multiple singer tracks, which allows a smooth and intuitive editing process when creating choruses. When layered, displaying the icon of each singer at the head of the track lets you easily overview the overall vocal track production.(*1)

(*1) The “Layer Function” of Piapro Studio for NT will be supported in future updates.

VST/AU Plugin: High compatibility with your music production software

Piapro Studio works as VST (Win or Mac) and AU (Mac) plugin(*2), and performs therefore at the highest compatibility with main music production software (Steinberg Cubase, Ableton Live, PreSonus Studio One, Image Line FL Studio, Apple Logic, Apple Garage Band, MOTU Digital Performer etc.). Through the sync function, you can produce background music in your music production software simultaneously to the creation of vocal parts using Piapro Studio. All values of your music production software, such as playback, stop, tempo and meter (*3) are automatically synched to Piapro Studio. Experience the seamless and smooth operation of Piapro Studio in your music production. Piapro Studio for NT is also available in a standalone version for a wider range of music production styles.

(*2) Standard version supports VST2/AU, Piapro Studio for NT supports VST3/AU.

(*3) If tempo and meter of your produced music is changing frequently, we recommend exporting first a MIDI file in your music production application. You can then import the tempo and meter information saved in the MIDI file into Piapro Studio.
