16-band vocoder for applying the spectrum of one sound (the modulator, usually a voice or rhythm part) to the waveform of another (the carrier, usually a synth pad or sawtooth wave)
|Hi Thru||Level of high frequency input modulator input fed to output - can improve realism and intelligibility|
|Hi Band||Level of high frequency vocoder band - may be unpleasant for some carrier signals|
|Envelope||Envelope tracking speed - set to minimum to freeze filter shape|
|Filter Q||Sharpness of each filter band - low values sound more synthetic, high-mid values more vocal|
|Mid Freq||Shift the filter bank up or down to optimize frequency range|
|Quality||Select 16-band operation, or 8-band for thinner sound and reduced processor usage|
Note that both carrier and modulator signals are taken from one input channel, which therefore must be stereo for normal operation. This is different to some other vocoder plug-ins where one of the input signals is taken from another plug-in in a different channel.
