ORANGE VOCODER IV: Vocoding, zynaptified.

Combining the most comprehensive and best-sounding set of vocoding algorithms available today with laser-like pitch control effects, a powerful synthesizer, audio freezing, a super fun and efficient workflow, and tons more, ORANGE VOCODER IV is - quite simply - the ultimate vocoder plug-in.

When it comes to creating that new vocal sound, making far-out sound effects and organic* robot and creature voices, sculpting colourfully mutated music grooves, or whatever else you can dream up: this creative processing powerhouse is for you.

*:or not-so-organic-at-all, of course

A massive upgrade to the classic Prosoniq vocoder, ORANGE VOCODER IV combines 24 high-tech vocoding algorithms, multi-algorithm pitch tuning effects, a powerful virtual analog synthesizer, flexible routing, and a fast and fun workflow with no-compromise sound quality, optimized for maximum presence, punch, and intelligibility.

What is a vocoder?

A vocoder takes two input sounds, and combines their timbral qualities to create a new, hybrid sound. The most well-known example of a vocoder in action are singing/speaking synthesizers, a sound made famous by bands like Daft Punk and Kraftwerk, among many others.

With a sonic bandwidth ranging from warm & vintage to crystal-clear, laser-focused, butter-smooth and utterly, completely destroyed, ORANGE VOCODER IV is much more than just a vocoder, and excels at creating innovative vocal sounds, electric grooves, mutated colorful instruments, frantic robots, mind-bending sci-fi SFX and haunting ambient drones for music production, sound design, and composition.

The key ORANGE VOCODER IV features at a glance:

  • Vocoder plug-in with semi-modular architecture.
  • Stereo vocoder module with 24 unique, high intelligibility vocoding algorithms, including two zero-latency options modes, each with a distinct sonic character, formant shifting, EQ, expansion, and HF Through and Unvoiced circuits.
  • Powerful built-in synthesizer with FM, sync, ring modulation, polyphonic distortion, 9-voice unison operation and an AI-powered preset generator.
  • 5 automatic tuning effect algorithms available in parallel to the vocoder Audio freezing, reverb and chorus effects modules.
  • Flexible, semi-modular routing, lightning-fast workflow, streamlined ergonomics and a stunning look & feel.

What's new in version 4? Here are some of the highlights:

  • Greatly expanded vocoder section, featuring formant shifting, expansion, stereo operation...and a total of 24 unique vocoding algorithms based on techniques including analog modeling, speech modeling, independent component analysis, LPC filtering, wavelet transforms, and more.
  • Completely rewritten, high quality synthesizer section including Unison and Mono Legato operation, thru-zero linear FM, comprehensive modulation options, a preset generator, and more.
  • New MIDI-controlled automatic tuning effects module featuring 5 modes, including the brand-new zero-latency pitch enforcer, with grain morphing and optionally polyphonic operation.
  • New, multi-view UI with a super-streamlined workflow, including module sub-presets and smart randomization.
  • Supports AU, AAX Native, VST 2.4 and VST 3 on macOS, and AAX Native, VST 2.4 and VST 3 on Windows.
  • Apple Silicon supported natively.
  • Now uses PACE EDEN copy protection for machine or iLok 2/3 based authorization.

Simply the best VOCODER as of today, without discussion. This one leaves 10 light years behind all the crap Vocoders on the market with a huge bill behind in marketing bells and whistles.

Wonderful, CPU friendly, glorious sound and tools that would make the competition weep without a doubt! If what you need is a Vocoder with class, personality, and a sound out of this world, here is your Vocoder.
