JH Living Vocoder

via JH:

"Just to let you all know ... I'm getting into "vocoder mood" again. :)

I thought about it a lot in the last few days. I think I will put the whole circuit onto one huge board, filling a 19" rackmount enclosure, like EMS did with the 2000 and 3000. The board will have a much higher component density than EMS, though, so you can expect something more complex than the EMS. Not more channels - but other goodies. :)

I think I'll be able to offer that PCB for EUR 150.00 + shipping if I get enough orders.

Oh yes, and I have a name for it too:

It will be the "Living Vocoder". :)

I try to include what I consider the best of Sennheiser, EMS, ETI and Roland. It probably owes the most to EMS, but it will in no way be a clone.

I have made some demos with a preliminary version I've built on veroboard many years ago. This is *not* from the upcoming "Living Vocoder", though:

There will be Freeze, symmetric and assymmetric slew control (a la EMS), a multifilter function with filtered silence bridging (a la Sennheiser), a compander for high dynamic range (a la Roland Vocoder Plus), and the filters will most probably be calibrated bands al a ETI (which I like better than the uncalibrated EMS filters).
I also plan to make an interface for external patch storage and CV control. just the interface, not the storage.)"

Contact jhaible at if interested. Let him know you saw it on MATRIXSYNTH.
