As you know, the voice is 90% of my setup, so I am alsways looking for new ways of manipulating it and use it as an instrument to produce sounds more than as a way to comunicate meanings.
A vocoder is on my list but unfortunately I have no budget. A guy told me that the vocoder in Ableton is very good and that I can control it with a midi controller so I stopped searching for a harware one. May I ask you why you need an hardware one? For the onld school vocodering which required an instrument plus voice? Will you play quitar while vocodering?
I will not, so I was searching for a vocoder which can vocoder WITHOUT any additional instrument, just voice.
I have found two:
electro harmonix v256 (btw, I do not know the talk box but they have one called voice box which has got harmony generator too).
and Tc Helicon VoiceTone Synth.
I think you will have to look to this other one, expecially if you do not have other effects of them or other good megaphone / telephon( radio effect. Their ones are very good. And with that vocoder you have lot of options..
I find it much more interesting that the electro harmonix but personally if you have budget I would buy both.
I will to, when I have money.
