Description

Vibrat-o-matic is a system that enables users to interactively control their vocal vibrato while singing. By actuating muscles around neck or stomach interactively along with song, even amateurs can easily sing a song with vibrato. Intuitive interface based on a pressure touch sensor let you control both the intensity and the timing of vibrato with one hand. Vibrato signals once inputted can be recorded and replayed afterwards. Therefore, you can even try others’ vibrato, for example pros.
