I’m feeling a bit under the weather today, but I did find a interesting pedal by Electro-Harmonix called the V256 Vocoder. I always have to remind myself, it’s not just about guitar overdrives and fuzzes. This is primarily a vocal tool, but could be used for interesting guitar tones, as well.
Here is the official description:
Use the Electro-Harmonix V256 Vocoder Pedal to robotize, harmonize, and rule the vocoder world. The EH V256 is a vocal processor that welds your voice to your axe delivering creative twists that make one heckuva difference in your sound.
The effect pedal bends your gender, drones your tone and invites alien noises into your next song. You want flexibility? The V256 vocal pedal adjusts the vocoder from 8 to 256 bandsâ€”taking you back to the ’80s and propelling you into the future at the same time. Bring your vocals up to snuff with the Electro-Harmonix V256 Vocoder Pedal’s advanced processing “Reflex Tune”â€”today’s most popular pitch-correction effect.
