NEW — VoIS Modular: 15-Channel Vocoder and Fixed Filter Bank

A modular vocoder in Eurorack format.


VoIS modular front side

Features:

  • 15 adjustable filter channels (eight poles) with clipping indicators
  • Slew to create unique slurring effects
  • Silence bridging to fill periods of silence with the filtered excitation sign
  • Spectral shift (WRP1) to shift analysis filter channels up or down
  • Spectral tilt (WRP2) to manipulate the overall spectrum with a single knob
  • V/UV detection for automatic detection of voiced/unvoiced signals
  • Freeze to bring the vocoded signal to a standstill
  • Noise to select either pink or white noise for the excitation of unvoiced signals
  • BP/LP to select between low-pass or band-pass response of the lowest channel (100 Hz)
  • Line inputs for voice and exitation signals with clipping indicators
  • FFB Out to output the fixed-filter bank audio signal
  • Vcdr Out to output the vocoder audio signal

The fixed-filter bank is adjustable via the 15 channel filters, spectral shift and spectral tilt.

At the heart of the vocoder: the channel filter board

analysis/synthesis channel board

The analysis/synthesis channel board is based on a standard 8-pole multi-feedback bandpass filter topology. For accuracy and temperature stability, resistors from the E48 series and SMD capacitors (size 1206 or 0805) with C0G/NP0 dielectric are used. A total of 18 boards cover a frequency range from 120 Hz to 7 kHz.
