Togu Audio Line Releases TAL-Vocoder 2
Togu Audio Line has released TAL-Vocoder 2, a vintage vocoder emulation with 11 bands that mimics the sound of vocoders from the early 80’s. It includes analog modeled components in combination with digital algorithms such as the SFFT (Short-Time Fast Fourier Transform).
This vocoder does not make a direct convolution of the carrier and modulation signal as other digital vocoders. It includes an envelope follower for every one of the eleven bands. This vocoder is optimized for voice processing and includes some algorithms for consonants to make the voice more intelligible. The carrier signal is a VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) with a Pulse, Saw, Noise and SubOsc. But it’s also possible to use the left stereo input as a carrier. Vocoder 2 also supports every sample rate.
» 11 band vocoder engine
» Internal carrier synth (pulse, saw, sub osc, noise, mono, poly, portamento, sync mode, tune)
» Possiblity to route an external carrier signal
» Harmonic control (adds more harmonics to any carrier signal)
» “Ess” enhancer for a clean understandable voice, also with a carrier that hasn’t many high frequencies
» Clip LED, glows if the input signal will be clipped.
» Panic button stopps hanging notes within the synth
» Documentation shows different routing possibilities
» Low CPU usage
Togu Audio Line’s TAL-Vocoder 2 is donation-ware and is available now for Mac and PC.
