Do you want your vocals to sound like a chorus of modulated Moog oscillators? How about getting your drums to play rhythmic chords? Are you totally into robotic-sounding alien pads? If you answered "yes" (or even “maybe”) to any of the above, then you need to get Vocoding!

The EVOC 20 PolySynth, can be intimidating when you first plug it in! However, once you dig beneath its perplexing, techno faceplate you’ll find an underground sonic universe waiting to be mined!

So what are Vocoders?

Let David Earl –our star MPV super-trainer– enlighten you! He starts this journey with a field trip into the history of Vocoding.
You’ll learn why vocoders were invented, how they were initially deployed and the fantastic physics behind how they make inanimate objects sound like they’re singing!

But get this: Did you know that the EVOC is a full-blown standalone synth,? Well, it is and in the next section the amazing Mr. Earl explains its different synthesis engines and how to program them. You’ll learn all about the EVOC’s extensive library of built-in wave tables, its overtone rich FM synthesis engine, and the sweepable lowpass filter and filtered noise generator.

Now it’s time to Vocode! David explains the EVOC’s deep “center section” with all its programable formant bands, U/V detection (no sunglasses needed) and ultra cool modulators. This is where all the Vocoding magic happens and soon you, too, be mastering all the EVOC’s controls.

So join David Earl and learn how the EVOC 20 PolySynth can be instrumental in making synth tracks sing, creating robotic voices and just doing some really weird and crazy-cool sonic effects!
