Moog 16 Channel Analog Vocoder (With More Than Just Vocals)

Published on Mar 6, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"Moog has resumed production of their classic 16-Channel Vocoder—an effect heard on countless records from Giorgio Moroder to Wendy Carlos and Moog Cookbook. While vocoders are often considered synonymous with robotic vocals, there's much more to this incredible processor than just that.

Vocoders can be used to combine the spectral content of any two sounds, analyzing the frequency content of one sound and impressing it upon another—in this case, by employing sixteen channels of Moog filters and envelope followers. In this video, we used the Vocoder to impress the spectral profile of a Moog DFAM on a Moog Mother-32, to create spectrally gated vocals using the Division Department 01/IV, and to do some classic synth vocals with the Elektron Digitone.

A world-class way to do complex filtering, dynamic gating effects, synth voice, or even general-purpose envelope following, the Moog 16-Channel Vocoder is no doubt one of the best-sounding vocoders ever made.
