Analog vocoder with 37-note semi-weighted keybed and multi-stage chorus effect.
Although originally patented by Bell Labs engineer Homer Dudley in 1939, the vocoder didn’t become part of the modern musical lexicon until the 1970s. It has since been used by recording/performing artists Wendy Carlos, Phil Collins, Jean Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Kraftwerk, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Daft Punk, Isao Tomito and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, to name but a few. The vocoder has also become a singular staple of major motion pictures and video games for its ability to create robot voices, special audio effects and much more.
True to the Original
Great care has been taken in engineering the VOCODER VC340, including the true to the original analog circuitry, which makes it extremely easy for you to recreate the classic vocoder sounds that made a tremendous impact on synth-based rock. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives the VOCODER VC340 its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat voice and string ensembles to stunning effects and otherworldly sounds. Unlike the original vocoders of the 1970s and ’80s, you get to use your favorite microphone with the VOCODER VC340. A dedicated XLR input connector is provided on the rear panel that allows any Low-Impedance (Lo-Z) dynamic mic (not incl.) to modulate the onboard synthesized sounds.
Nothing fattens up the sound of a vocal choir or string section better than a truly-great chorus! That's why VOCODER VC340’s chorus features authentic analog BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology, which hands the signal off across multiple processing stages for the ideal amount of luscious thickening.
Controls and Connectivity
For those who want the numbers, VOCODER VC340 has 32 knobs, faders, and switches, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. Input and output connections include Mic In; Phones; External Synth In; Control (Vocoder Hold & Pitch pedal inputs); Audio Out (Mono & Stereo with 3-position Level switch); and MIDI (I/O and Thru) via USB/MIDI DIN.
- Microphone input to modulate any audio signal
- Multiple-stage Chorus based on legendary BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology
- 37 semi-weighted full-size keys featuring velocity sensitivity
- 32 sliders and switches to give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters

- Comprehensive USB/Midi implementation for connection to keyboard/sequencers
Get the iconic vocoder sound that inspired some of the most influential artists and albums.
