Summary from Sound on Sound magazine April 2019

SUMMARY 

Over the years, Roland’s Vocal Transformer line has ripened into a solid box of tricks. Whether you just need gentle pitch correction or want to turn yourself into a robot barbershop quartet, the VT-4 has you covered. 

CONCLUSION

The VT-4 is way more fun than it has right to be. The pitch correction was, in my experience, fast and accurate. The Robot and Vocoder modes are hellishly good fun and the other effect combine to make a well thought-out vocal processor. The ability to use MIDI for pitch or supply your own vocoder carrier via the USB 2 interface actually qualifies the VT-4 as a vocoder, and eight variations of every effect mean you’ll be finding new combinations for a long time. 

The Vocal Transformer line of products started out as a simple effect, but has matured into a flexible and impressive vocal toolbox, It could be used for everything from subtle pitch correction, harmonising and vocoding to Hollywood sound design of demons, fairy-folk or spy-thriller vocal disguise. Quite simply, I imagine anyone who records vocals will find a use for it.
