KORG VC-10 VOCODER
Simulates Your Vocal Characteristics with Every Note for Amazing Keyboard Controlled Chorus and Robot Voice Effects.
Originally invented as an academic tool for analysing and synthesizing human speech, the vocoder is now a practical and exciting new musical instrument, thanks to Korg's original technology.
The VC-10 requires no complex operational procedures.
Simply speak into the microphone and play the keyboard as you would an electric organ.
You'll hear polyphonic chorus effects controlled by the characteristics of your own voice.
By using the octave switch you can raise or lower the pitch to simulate male or female chorus effects.
The control wheel gives added variation for a robot-like computer voice as well as choral pitch bends.
Instead of using the built-in keyboard, you can also play an electric guitar or other instrument through the VC-10 while varying its tone color with your voice.
With this incredible new instrument you'll be able to create completely unique musical effects.
