Let’s see what Lance Williams has to say about Vocalzone!
“We’ve been proud users of Vocalzone for some time now. We’re a vocal-heavy band, and often have three part harmonies in our tracks. Because of that, we do everything we can to be on top form with our voices and Vocalzone definitely helps us achieve that.”
