1. Vocodex

by Image Line

Vocodex

Important Note: This product is only compatible with Windows operating systems.

Vocodex is simply one of the best sounding vocoders on the market today. Try the demo and hear why Vocodex is the last word in vocoding.

‘By your command’

What is Vocoding? You have heard vocoding many times, even if you don’t know what it is. Vocoders are the classic robot voice from many sci-fi movies. Vocoders analyze the real-time frequency band activity of one sound, the Modulator, to control frequency band activity in another, the Carrier. A vocoder consists of a series of narrow-band frequency gates that allow through only those frequencies from the Carrier that are detected in the Modulator source. So if a human voice is used to vocode a synthesizer chord, it will sound like the synthesizer is talking. Check the demo tracks above.

Features

  • Speech enhancement contouring of noise or modulator pass-through.
  • Modulator noise reduction to reduce ambient noise bleeding through carrier.
  • Voice doubling and reverb capabilities.
  • Built-in Soundgoodizer for limiting and warm output.
  • Up to 100 bands individually locatable anywhere in the spectrum.
  • Band unison to create a fat & lush sound.
  • Sidechain carrier & or modulator input.
  • Inbuilt carrier synthesizer powered by Sytrus.
  • & more per-band effects to discover…

2. XILS Vocoder 5000

by XILS Lab

XILS Vocoder 5000

The Organic Vocoder, First and Last step for Vocoding

A Legend is Reborn!

Inspired by the EMS Flagship Vocoder ( EMS 5000 -1976- Probably the most complex and powerful analog Vocoder ever built), XILS-lab used his knowledge acquired during the emulation of both the VCS3 synthesizer and the VP300 VocoderPlus to develop the XILS Vocoder 5000 Mode.

Say it with music

A Vocoder is a synthesizer which accepts an external sound source, a musical instrument or prerecorded signal, so that you can process it, with or without the keyboard, into a huge variety of sounds.

Human voice, the most variable sound of all, can be fed into the Vocoder, so that you can alter its pitch, Tone, Vibrato, and all its characteristics, allowing you to synthetize a Choir from a single voice, or to create melodies from ordinary speech.

You can also process Drums, percussive elements, or Guitars and … every kind of synthesizer itself, to breathe some analog life into them, or completely reshape them.  You can even derive some pure synth patterns from drumloops. Everything is possible.

XILS Vocoder 5000

Clarity, Purity : The XILS Vocoder 5000 emulates the sophisticated filtering techniques and incredibly complex circuitry of its analog counterpart to achieve the same organic sound, precision and … clarity.

The Vocoder 5000 can speak a perfectly clear and understandable English, or German as well as Japanese.

Easy to use for beginners, yet incredibly powerful for Veterans : The user interface offers a standard single panel view. Everything is there, right under your hands, with a lot of presets to get you started. Should you want, or need, to go further, the Logo Center Panel will switch to a vast choice of advanced panels displaying the advanced parameters of the module of the Vocoder 5000 you wish to explore and experiment with. And there are dozens of advanced parameters, for your joy.

Back in 21st Century : Because it’s a Xils, it offers many advanced features that its ancestor could not have offered in its time : We added Bands number, Filter types, Filter’s Emphasis and Emphasis ponderation, more Slew Rate mods, more Freeze mods, 2 LFOs ( Original had none ), Detailed FM and PWM, more Oscillators Waveforms, an improved Input detector ( Sibilants), Gate input.You can also populate the Matrix by freely drawing lines, and it has its own presets. (Very useful once you’ve found the perfect template for a certain voice).

Features

Synthesizer sound is based on our acclaimed VCS 3 oscillators emulation ( Original also had EMS oscillators of course )
The 20 or 22 bands filter bank is based on our analog like, zero-delay behavior filters, ensuring that all bands are equally measured.
Level analysis and spectrum followers were developed in the labs for many years now and considered as state of the art by all reviewers, as you can see in our VP-330 emulation.

Finally, what also makes the XILS Vocoder 5000 incredibly powerful and versatile is the Matrix patch area: You can connect any band of the modulator to any band of the carrier. This means endless sound possibilities. And also that no other Analog Vocoder will ever offer you more flexibility and freedom.

More than an extreme Vocoder

The XILS Vocoder 5000 is also a wonderful synthesizer tool with a Voice/Unvoice detector, a Pitch Tracker and a Frequency Shifter which can give you a lot of fun to manipulate voices, drums, bass lines or anything !

You can even play it as a –not so- standard synthesizer. And you can mix all these signals along with the Vocoder output and dry signal in the most subtle, convenient and precise way : All the modules have their own set of parameters, including output levels.

The XILS Vocoder 5000 Modules and features in a glance

The XILS Vocoder 5000 provides all the modules of its legendary ancestor and more :

  • A Matrix Patch Area (22×22 or 20×20)
  • Two Synthesizer core
  • Two oscillators per core, modelled from the EMS VCS3 oscillator
  • One noise per core
  • Two LFOs per core
  • One VCA-ADSR per core
  • One 22 bands filter vocoder.
  • One 20 bands filter vocoder
  • Stereo analysis and synthesis available
  • Side chain for adding external audio source to the carrier
  • A virtual keyboard, which can be saved within your presets.
  • A finely tweak analog-like pitch tracker.
  • An input gate for reducing the noise
  • A Voice/unVoise detector
  • A full output mixer applied to any of the internal audio path
  • A huge Frequency shifter effect.
  • All parameters are MIDI controllable
  • Presets for using quickly the XILS 5000 in all is glory

The Vocoder 5000 Modules explained

Let’s see each module in detail

The Matrix Patch Area

The patch area allows you to connect any band of the analysis filter bank to any band of the synthesis filter bank.

It is very easy to edit the formants, replacing a man voice by a child’s one, make some special effects, or get the weirdest electronic voices

This patch area is also very useful to sculpt sound in a vey precise way when you use other signal as modulators, such as drums

Fats use : We added a preset manager dedicated to the patch area : It provides some init configurations (formant +1, formant -2, inverted, ….) or you can save your own Matrix patches.


XILS Vocoder 5000’s Heart: the Filter Bank


A Vocoder global quality depends heavily on its filter bank quality

Thanks to its deep experience in filtering algorithms (  Analog like, un-wrapped , zero-delay behavior filters are already used in Xils synthesizers for many years ), XILS-lab has developed a very accurate filter bank which splits both Modulator and Carrier signals into bands with an EQUAL width ( Which is quite difficult to achieve in the digital domain ).

Resulting in the most accurate software vocoder ever done, almost 100% identical to its model. We added some new features :  you can tweak the emphasis, and add a ponderation curve.

The ponderation curve allows you to adapt the filter of each Filter’s Bands so that it can deliver some very smooth and warm bass frequencies, while totally preserving clarity, without the “tube” effect.

More possibilities : you can choose the number of bands (22 or 20 bands and  the filters order (12,18 or 24 db/oct)

At the power of the XILS Vocoder 5000: the Oscillators and the Noise


Inspired  by the EMS VCS3 oscillators, already emulated in the acclaimed XILS 3, XILS 4 synthesizers, the XILS Vocoder 5000 provides two arm sounding, clear and transparent oscillators.

Oscillators Frequency ( FM) and Shape ( PWM) can be modulated ( Vibratos etc). Oscillators frequency can be fixed, or use Keyboard Tracking (The key to nice vocoding chords effects). It can also follow the input voice/signal frequency via the Pitch Tracker module.

Next, we have the Voice/UnVoice module : Oscillators levels are automatically adapted to match the input voice behavior, sibilant or voiced.

Clicking on the “Advanced” icon opens, as it should, the Oscillator Advanced Parameters Panel  : Here, you can choose the Oscillator Waveform (Saw, Pulse, Triangle, Sine), specify its shape, and select the FM and PWM sources (LFO1, or LFO2).

Finally, the Noise Generator : is also full part of the synthesizer sound, and, like the oscillators, can be driven by the Voice/unVoice module.

Vocoding clarity : the Voice/Unvoice and Slew Rate modules and freeze function

Voice or Unvoice : Based on our exclusive DeeS algorithms ( Xils-Lab transparent Deesser device ) which separates smoothly but firmly the sibilant from the voiced part of the input voice, the XILS Vocoder 5000 is providing an easy but accurate way to choose which generator must be used as Carrier when while vocoding : the Oscillators or the Noise.     

Voice or Unvoice : a very simple and easy module with a Threshold, a Frequency and a Smoothness knobs. That’s all !

Slew Rate : This module analyzes the input filter bank, then apply the result to the Synthesis filter bank. Without this module’s advanced algorithm, the vocoding voice wouldn’t be as understandable and smooth.

For a better result and clarity, you can add a ponderation curve to the various bands, allowing a smoothness in the low part of the spectrum, for a warmer sound as well as a fast answer in the upper part of the spectrum more a better clarity.   

The -Midi controllable- Freeze switch will, as you could expect, freeze the spectrum (or any part of the internal algorithm, pitch, slew, voice/unvoice), allowing to use the XILS Vocoder 5000 as a great and huge resonator filter.

The Frequency Shifter


Like its analog ancestor, the XILS Vocoder 5000 offers a particular effect called Frequency Shifter.

As its name implies, this effect shifts the whole spectrum of the incoming signal(s) by a certain frequency.

Depending on the set frequency, the result can be anything from a simple subtle level modulation to huge ring modulator like effects.

There are several components in this effect. Each comes with its own Level and Panoramic, to achieve wide  stereo processing. The Advanced Settings Panel gives you more options.

This effect can be simultaneously applied on any of the XILS Vocoder 5000 audio paths. The frequency shift can also be driven and controlled by the Pitch Tracker Module for even more fun!


See, and control, what you hear : The Mixer and the Vu-Meters

All the 22 or 20 bands are displayed by led based Vu-Meters in the Bands mixer.
Input Speech/Signal (Modulator), internal synthesizer (Carrier), Vocoder  and global output levels are displayed by needle based vintage Vu-Meter.

Finally, the level of each band can be smoothly adjusted in the Mixer (and MIDI controlled)

6. XILS V+

by XILS Lab

XILS V+

For a very long time, this wonderful and versatile machine was used by a lot of well know artists and musicians, for a long time now, it is waiting by a lot of computer users to be part of their sound arsenal.

The XILS V+ combines a Vintage 10 band Vocoder, Supreme Top Octave Divider based Strings and Human Voices, or any sophisticated layering of these three elements.

After more than one year of intense modelling deep in the basement of the Xils Laboratories, we offer you this complete recreation of a legend. Its unique vintage vibe and beauty that can only be brought back to life by precisely emulating different ancient and forgotten techniques.

T.O.D: The Top Octave Divider Oscillator provides a unique sound that no samples, or other simple synthesis techniques can reproduce. Emulating the T.O.D, without any aliasing on the whole frequency range, with its pitch and waveform modulation, was a real challenge, worthy of XILS-lab. We are very proud of this effort and offer it to you for your inspiration and enjoyment.

XILS-lab touch: The XILS V+ would not however be a real XILS-lab instrument if we did not add a lot of functions and possibilities that were not present in the original machine, some giving access to its internal circuitry and parameters. And some being totally new.

“T.O.D and Beyond”, following the Analog and Beyond tradition XILS-lab initiated a long time ago.

Features

The XILS V+ features exactly the same possibilities as its famous hardware predecessor, but offers even more : while a lot of parameters were hidden under the roof of the hardware, Xils-lab put them on the front panel for a wider range of sound possibilities.

The XILS V+ offers:

  • One finely tweak and emulated Top Octave Divider aliasing free oscillator, providing up to 49 voices of polyphony.
  • Access to a lot of parameters which its hardware model kept secret under the roof.
  • One strings section.
  • One human voices section.
  • One 10 bands vocoder.
  • A virtual keyboard ( from which notes can be saved in your presets).
  • An Advanced Stereo Space effect.
  • A simple but nice sounding reverb.
  • A Analog like resonant Phaser.
  • Up to 6 free assignable modulation nodes, with up to 14 sources and 24 destinations.
  • A special Glide function.
  • A finely tweak analog-like pitch tracker.
  • All parameters are MIDI controllable.

Main panel


The main panel shows the same parameters than the original hardware for a better understanding. Vocoder, Human voice, Strings are enable by rocket switches, following the original keyboard split “upper/lower”.

This panel gives you all the possibilities you can find on the hardware.

A Brigade Bucket Delay based vibrato is providing for the vocoder and the human voice and the level of each section can be finely adjusted. The input of the vocoder “direct Mic” can also be mixed before the Ensemble (chorus).

An External synth input (using the side chain of the Plug-in) can be mixed with the internal sound generator to provide the vocoder carrier.

Advanced settings

To offer a huger range of sonic possibilities, the XILS V+ provides four more panels for advanced settings : Mixer/ARP, Vocoder, Effects and Modulation.

Mixer/ARP

The mixer panel offers you the possibility to finely tune the internal sound generators.

From the relative level of the Male 8 and Male/Female 4 Human voices, to the Ensemble dry/wet, you can also tweak the voices formants, the T.O.D wave form as well as the Strings filter shape.

Furthermore, to avoid the only problem some users reported from the hardware, you can select a Polyphonic attack either for the voices or for the strings.

The release, on the original machine, is reseted each time a new note is played. This is a very musical feature for long release doesn’t blur previous chords. But if you prefer standard release behavior, you can select it on this panel (“Legacy” white rocket switch).

A build-in Arpeggio is also provided with a special feature to play “broken” arpeggios, avoiding some boring cycles.

Vocoder

The vocoder panel allows you to adjust the analog-like pitch tracker, the attack and release time of the analyze algorithm as well as some parameters of the filter banks.

You can also freeze the spectrum (the result can be save in a preset or your project) and enable the special “water” effect (this is impossible to describe, so just try it)

Effects

The XILS V+ provides three built-in effects. The now well known Stereo Space, based on the XILS-lab True Stereo Dynamic Engine, a simple but efficient Reverb and an analog-like resonant Phaser.

Modulations

Last but not least, the XILS V+ provides a wide range of modulations (over 14 sources and 24 destinations), a monophonic LFO and a polyphonic envelope dedicated to the modulation.

System Requirements

XILS V+ is available with the following formats :

Mac OSX 10.4/10.5 (32 bits powerpc and intel eLicenser/iLok), 10.6 (32&64 bits Intel) and later : VST2.4, VST3, Audio Unit,  RTAS (Protools 7.0 and later), AAX (32&64 bits, native)
Windows XP, Vista and windows7/8 (32&64bits) ; VST,  RTAS (Protools 7.0 and later), AAX (32&64 bits, native)

XILS V+ is 32 bits and 64 bits plug-in.


7. ORANGE VOCODER

by Zynaptiq

ORANGE VOCODER

Multi-Algorithm Vocoder Plug-In

Important note: this plugin is Mac only and is not PC compatible.

Heard on countless songs in multiple genres worldwide, ORANGE VOCODER AU is indeed THE classic software vocoder plug-in. Originally developed by Prosoniq in 1998, ORANGE VOCODER has since evolved through numerous iterations, always staying at the cutting edge right to this day. It has a reputation for being the single most transparent sounding and flexible vocoder plug-in available…and we at Zynaptiq agree.

ORANGE VOCODER features a built-in 32-voice synthesizer, 8 different vocoder algorithms ranging from analog modelled circuits to far-out digital cross-synthesis modes, filter-bank freezing and reverb, a 10-band graphic EQ, and more…a dream-machine for creating new sounds!

Key Features:

  • Realtime vocoder effects plug-in for the Apple AudioUnits (AU) format.
  • Flexible Carrier/Modulator Routing, including side-chain input.
  • Integrated 32-voice virtual analog synthesizer.
  • 8 unique vocoder algorithms.
  • HF Passthrough & Voiced/Unvoiced Detector with noise generator.
  • Filterbank Freeze & Filterbank Reverb.
  • 10-band Graphic EQ with Analyzer.
  • Integrated Hall Reverb.
  • ORANGE VOCODER Algorithm Selector

One Vocoder? How About 8…

ORANGE VOCODER doesn’t just give you one great vocoder sound, it gives you eight. Two different 24-band analog emulations give you classic vocoder sounds in linear and minimum phase. The ORANGE VOC 3 and Classic ORANGE algorithms give you the state-of-the-art ORANGE VOCODER algorithm, as well as its digital classic counterpart from the original plug-in from 1998. The unique MR 1st order, MR 2nd order and MR 3rd order Multi-Resolution modes use wavelet transform mathematics to provide frequency dependent time resolution, and sounds ranging from extremely natural to completely synthetic, while Colorize applies the Modulator’s phase response in addition to its frequency amplitude data, for a wild cross-synthesis effect.

Play It Again, Vocoder

The integrated virtual analog synth features two oscillators with ring-mod and hard-sync. Choose between analog emulation and sampled waveforms, and use the included 4-pole low-pass filter for shaping them. Add a distortion circuit that is so warm sounding that you’ll break a sweat, and throw in dual LFOs and an envelope follower and start tweaking. You can play the synth via MIDI, or tell it which notes to play using the on-screen keyboard.

Flip That Switch

ORANGE VOCODER is all about flexibility. The vocoder engine’s Carrier and Modulator inputs can be sourced from the plug-in input, a side-chain input, and the internal synth, and changing the routing is as simple as clicking one or two switches. Want to swap Carrier and Modulator signals? Hit Flip. Use the synth instead of the side-chain? Click on Synth, done.

We Hear Ya’ – And Don’t You Move!

Intelligibility is key when transforming speech using a vocoder. Which is something that ORANGE VOCODER excels at. Apart from its unique, highly transparent algorithms, it also features a high frequency pass-through circuit as well as voiced/unvoiced detection. On the other hand, ORANGE VOCODER has several options to make the results more diffuse, or even static – the integrated Filterbank Reverb allows smoothing and blurring the Filterbank modulation, while the Freeze function will capture the current state of the Filterbank and hold it infinitely.

Features Galore

All that said, there’s more. ORANGE VOCODER comes with an easy to use Hall Reverb, a three-channel mixer for blending Carrier and Modulator with the Vocoder’s output, a stereo widening function aptly called PHAT, a 10-band graphic EQ with analyzer, a random preset generator, and more than 60 factory presets. Test drive the free trial of this vocoding powerhouse today!
