Prosoniq announced a new version of their OrangeVocoder plug-in, expanding the range of sounds and features of the popular plug-in.
With a newly designed interface, OrangeVocoder 3 offers better MIDI control for the built-in synth, support for loading sound files, virtually unlimited polyphony, mono-mode with glide for classic R'n'B talkbox imitations, freely assignable filter bands, and a real-time 24-band analyzer control. OrangeVocoder 3 also offers 5 different basic sound modes and some very advanced filterbank effects, including a formant freeze function, a filterbank sample & hold option and a voiced/unvoiced detector.
The automatable "phoneme dial" lets you string together sentences without external speech signals, turning this plug into a vocal synthesizer. Phonemes are vocal utterances that provide the basic building blocks of speech - they encompass vowels, consonants, semivowels and dipthongs. The phonemes can even be played on a MIDI keyboard, giving you real-time control over all aspects of the synthesis.Features:
OrangeVocoder 3 for VST on MacOS and Windows is expected to be released in May 2004 and will retail for 249 Euro. The update from version 2 will be priced at 99 Euro. Other formats and platforms are planned to be announced.
