The RoCoder name is very close to that of the original Vocoders given title. However, you will find that there are many new and creative features onboard, so don't expect a regular Vocoder.
Alongside a 32-band Vocoder, RoCoder also features an Additive mode, a combined Vocoder + Additive mode, Noise mode, Tuned Noise mode, and a Tuned Comb mode. These new modes allow you to create many new types of sound next to the Vocoder sound.
RoCoder doesn't stop with these new modes, it also includes stereo panning per band, and it has the well-known XY pad, an extensive modulation matrix, and all this is finished off with built-in FX including Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Stereo Delay, Reverb section.
