An FFT-based 1024-channel vocoder. The modulator input - usually a sung or simpjy spoken voice - is analyzed with respect to its spectral content, which is then applied to the other sound source. The latter may be any externally supplied signal ranging from pink noise, synth pads, guitar or even drums. Alternatively, there is an internal, MIDI driven synth which is optimized for best speech reproduction fidelity. You can blend the high frequencies with noise for natural-sounding sibilants. There is also a noise gate, a compressor and a stereo reverb on board.
Here is a summary of La Voz Cantante's features:
- FFT based 1024-channel vocoder.
- Stereo inputs for carrier and modulator, respectively.
