Musical Android asked me for some tips and tricks about the vocoder, so I started a serie of video tutorial. This is the first one, very simple, that demonstrate how to switch between modulators in a vocoder pattern. Tell me what you think about it: is it clear enough? I didn't record my voice to avoid misusderstandings with my french accent ;-).
Next videos will be about Multiband compression, parallel (NY) compression, Gate reverb and other Vocoder's goodies.
That was very cool to watch, I hope everyone can catch up with you man.... very creative use of vocoder and the variety of tones that you can mix in your track with just a few simply synth patterns...
Excellent video and explanation. Useful to get an idea of what you can do--I always think of vocoders for doing "city of Compton" lines from California Love.
great video...you should have recorded your voice along with the "sub-titles" ,...otherwise it was informative and fun to watch.
Very useful video.... thanks skarabee... more tips and tricks video!!!!

Basically you can turn the vocoders into return tracks with different effects on each one allowing for some wicked stuff! Im looking forward to the multiband compression tut as I have had a hard time getting it to sound right. Thanks for doing these Ska!
Good tut Skarabee, I think anybody get along with this. It's nice that you use a beatbox as the modulator to, this machine is capable of so much more than just processing human voices.
Very nicely done, Skarabee.

very fine tutorial!! thanks a lot..
Dang! I'm busy right now and don't have time to dig into this right now. Consider me excited, and can't wait to become spongy, and soak up the tricks from the master. Thanks bunches for putting this together, and taking the cookies off the top shelf for the rest of us.
Thanks for the S.M.O.V.A.T.T.A.T.T

Hahaha Wardini.... that's funny.....
! Wardini is definitely the king of N.F.T.W.A.C (Not From This World Acronyms for Caustic)!
More to come after Christmas. (I have actually family from France at home).
Very good tutorial, looking forward to the part 2!
simply awesome, thanks so much for sharing the .caustic file as well!
Fantastic tutorial. So many clever and creative people here.
Have a little listen to my work.
Great Idea Thanks
Astonishing. I somehow missed that one could use other machines as modulators. This means I'm not limited to six WAV files per Vocoder - I can set a PCMsynth as the modulator, and then load it up with up to as many vocal clips as there are keys. AND do this six times with six PCMsynths.
I can't envision actually having enough clips to load even ONE PCMsynth, much less six, but it is technically possible.
I actually did my first track to use the Vocoder this month. I recorded a video of myself singing "Hold Me Now" by Thompson Twins, as a present to my wife for Saint Valentine's Day. The backing track is playing in Caustic, and two Vocoder machines provide backing vocals.
I'm attaching the Caustic file if anybody's interested. My lead vocal isn't here - that was performed live for the video. But you can enjoy the backing "vocals", for which I recorded the articulations in REAPER.
