For those looking to faithfully replicate the processed vocal sounds achieved in the studio, the Roland VT-3 is here to answer those prayers. The Vocoder offers users a way to quickly and conveniently process their vocals in real time, with dedicated controls for Pitch and Formant Shape, onboard Reverb, and a Wet/Dry fader, and a Bypass button.
The vocoder can make voices sound like the standard “robot”, but can also transform a voice into a synthesizer, process synth bass, and produce excellent lo-fi sounds. In addition to VP-330 inspired vocoder sounds, the VT-3 also excels at Pop and Electro-style sounds with its two Auto-Pitch effects and does not require a keyboard for standard operation.
