    There's quite a few things like that but a lot more expensive!

    None of those that you mention are a vocoder.


    OP: Give us a little context - what is your current rig (HW / SW/ keys / effects? Do you need this for performance? or recording? or both?

    If you're good at soldering check out paia. They do a Vocoder kit.

    I think Harald Bode's was first though -- however the Bode vocoder and the Moog are practically identical, and in fact it is Harald Bode's name on the Moog patent application, so I think Moog licensed the design from him.

    i believe that's right. but i get a hard-on for old moog gear. a former bandmate of mine has (had?) a moog 12-stage phaser. yikes was that thing fun.

    then he'd put his moog rogue up against my korg ms-10 and we'd see who could come up with the strangest noises. but i'm OT now...

    To continue OT a little:
    I dearly miss my MS-10!
    :(

    was your parting voluntary?

    Not really. I was totally broke so I had to sell it.
    I did make £150 profit on it though.

    ouch. well, better than having it nicked.

    i got mine in 1982. it's probably the last piece of gear i'd let go.

    I had to sell loads of stuff. Roland R-8, TR707, TR 606, Novation Bass Station plus other bits and pieces.


    I have another R-8 now and will never sell it!!!

    Not true, check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocoder

    have a look in your LP7 manual for a good write up on vocoders too.
