Softube has released Vocoder. This is what they have to say about it...
Deployed by the military to conceal voiced messages during World War II, the vocoder has had a hidden hold on the music world since the 1970s. From Electric Light Orchestra to Imogen Heap, Daft Punk to Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk to the Beastie Boys, Laurie Anderson, Kanye West, Mogwai, and so many more, diverse artists have used vocoders to excellent effect. Now, Softube fans can vocalize their unique artistic vision with Vocoder.
Vocoder features a six-voice carrier synth with MIDI capability and an easy-to-use Attack Hold Decay Envelope. The unusual and inspired Freeze section adds to Vocoder's creative potential. Users get the feel of vintage vocoding machines coupled with Softube-quality sound, workflow, and innovation. And a chance to let their vision sing–through any source.
