La Voz Cantante

This is a 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 carrier. 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 more natural sounding plosives and fricatives. Threre 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
  • Optional MIDI input to drive internal synth as carrier
  • Polyphony with unlimited number of voices
  • Up to three voices per note with adjustable relative detuning and stereo width
  • Octave, semitone and fine tuning controls
  • Natural sounding sibilant processing
  • Built-in soft knee compressor with color-coded LED indicator
  • Built-in noise gate
  • Built-in stereo reverb
  • Master volume control with output clipping indicator
  • LED indicators for inputs and outputs for quick check of signal routing
Enuff said - hear the demos, and if you like, download La Voz Cantante and get busy!

Version 6B
La Mer, using the same modulator recordings as in the 1.3 demo below:

The next christmas song demo consists of three parts: first you hear the original (quite awful) modulator track, then the same track is processed for pitch correction (supplying the track along with correct MIDI notes to La Voz Cantante), and finally you hear a choir arrangement, still using the same modulator input. No additional processing has been applied, just La Voz Cantante 6B.

Version 1.3
