hmm... I always wanted a high end vocoder... any1 knows if there is a hardware device (hardware that is produced now, nothing vintage) that would come close to ELS?
Im not sure they are up there with the classics but the electrix warp factory and the FAT Procoder(aka MAM/Next VF11) are said to be pretty good. They are between £100-£200
Or you can get a Roland SVC350 for a bit more...apparently they sound amazing
If only that Eiosis was a bit cheaper-but at £180 w dongle I think its quite steep for a novelty plug...damn I want one!
FWIW I personally thing the Orange Vocoder is rubbish-thin and weak-but ok for washy pad sounds...the Akai one is 'acceptable' but in my experience it wasnt easy to get anything useable out of it...
