Mr Roboto Vocoder Intro (Vox only)

February 2, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Vocoder intro to the 1983 song “Mr Roboto” by Styx originally was created with a Roland VP-330 Vocoder

“One of the coolest instruments out there. The vocoder shapes its envelope and filters by any sound source fed into it, your voice or even a drum loop can be used which is then applied to another sound source, typically a synth pad. This creates a very unique and famous robot-like sound.

Aside from the 10-band vocoder, the VP-330 added a string synth section, choir and a human-voice sound, both of which are quite excellent themselves. Its 3 sound sections offer a few different presets that can be slightly edited with de-tuning and vibrato. The VP-330 is one of the best Vocoder synths ever and although there are many other types of Vocoders, none sound as good as this!”
