Postby anti_phase; Thu May 17, 2018 1:48 pm Looking for a versatile VST vocoder

So, I need a nice Vocoder effect, capable of making those old-school sounds like robotic voices in Kraftwerk\Rockets\Daft Punk style with distinct pronunciation of words and some modern stuff for experimentation.
The very important thing for me is that it must use any audio source as a career, because I tried several and they only can use midi-driven synths\samplers as a career.
Also reasonably priced VST`s are highly welcomed. :)
Before downloading and installing all of demo versions of all vocoders I`d like to narrow a little the number of options and maybe get some feedback from users

If you're on Windows it doesn't get much more versatile than Image-Line's Vocodex. Price is pretty reasonable as well if purchased at jrrshop. Just be sure to test the demo thoroughly since you can't resell IL stuff.

XILS 5000 is the best vocoder plugin available at the present time IMHO.

Kraftwerk were using the Virsyn Vocoder at one time.

Google ...

VirSyn is proud to report that Kraftwerk used our MATRIX Vocoder live on stage at their world tour 2008. Starting in September in Dublin, Krakow and Kiev and in the following concerts in Australia, New Zealand, Singapur and Hongkong. The MATRIX vocoder was used there live as a VST3 effect in Cubase 4 on a Sony VAIO FZ laptop.

Waldorf Lector is another candidate. Not sure if it does what you're after though (use all audio sources as carrier). I'd be surprised if it doesn't, though.

Looking at Matrix I understood I forgot to note there should be no USB licensers, Dongles, Ilok and so on...
Anyway It`s nice to know Kraftwerk used it but I`m not searching for the exact tone, just for a reference

Zynaptiq is going to release an updated version of the Orange vocoder any time soon. Wait for that one I suggest. Of all the vocoders I own, I use Waldorfs Lector the most. Zynaptiq Orange vocoder will be an insta-buy for me.
Rig: i7-5960X,64GB RAM DDR4, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, Samsung 34" Curved Monitor
Audio Hardware:Waldorf Blofeld & Pulse 2, Akai MAX49 & MPD226, Steinberg UR44 & CMC controllers
Software: Cubase Pro 9.5, Wavelab Pro 9.5, Dorico

I’d also suggest Waldorf Lector as a versatile choice. An unusual choice would be Madrona Labs Virta, back to regular price after a spring SOOPERSALE.

I`ve just tried a demo version of Lector, and yes, it does what I want! Maybe I`ll purchase it or wait for Zynaptiq, seems to be really interesting. As for Madrona it`s too unusual for me
