Moog 16-channel Vocoder Demo

Published on Feb 4, 2020 Sweetwater

"Daniel Fisher is demonstrating the Moog Vocoder, originally released in 1979 and used by artists such as Wendy Carlos, Devo, Giorgio Moroder, Moog Cookbook, Saga, Yellow Magic Orchestra, and filmmaker/composer John Carpenter, among others. A 16-band analog signal processor that continuously analyzes the timbral characteristics of a sound (the Program) and impresses its timbral characteristics upon a second signal (the Carrier), the Vocoder is perfect for mutating vocals, warping synthesizers, and much more. The 16-channel Vocoder’s analog voice circuits are hand-soldered at the employee-owned Moog Factory in Asheville, NC to deliver that classic ’70s sound.

Fisher is using the Moog Matriarch Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer both in front of the Vocoder (with its oscillators and filters) as well as after the Vocoder (with its Stereo Analog Ping Pong Delay)."
