@Antwaanmusic (and on YouTube) just sent me a tweet letting me know about a video he posted. It’s a “VideoSong” which I have to say… I really dig the concepts of these. Basically, every instrument/performance is captured on video, so no hidden overdubs, etc. Super fun to watch and it definitely tugs at my creative bone. The amount of work and video rendering/syncing has got to be a bitch, but I can see the fun of putting something like this together. The video song, titled “Deep”, is a nice piece and features the Electro-Harmonix V256 Vocoder.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the EHX V256 Vocoder, here is the official description:
Robotize, Harmonize Rule the vocoder world! The V 256 welds your voice to your axe inspiring the twist of creativity that can make all of the difference. Bend your gender, drone your tone and invite aliens into your work of art. You want flexibility? The V256 lets you adjust the vocoder from 8 to 256 bands taking you back to the 80s and propelling you into the future at the same time. Bring your vocals up to snuff with advanced processing Reflex Tune… todays most popular pitch correction effect.
