Great sound, limited functionality,
I like using the Softube Vocoder when inserted as an software instrument plug-in within Logic Pro X. This enables external MIDI keyboard input. An audio track is then selected as a side chain to articulate the MIDI notes. The method for doing this is not described in the Softube Vocoder manual. See Eventide plug-in manual. It would be cool if the Vocoder LFO speed was variable and/or syncable. Kudos for sound quality.
Simple and beautiful ;-)
No LFO rate control :(
It‘s easy to set up, the sound is OK even though quite digital sounding, it integrates well into the mix and the stereo feature is really good at not ruining the mono compatibility. The lack of a carrier input is painful but still somewhat acceptable. But how could they not allow for any control of the LFO speed at all?
This sounds amazing and has been a huge inspiration in my writing and production since I got it! Beautiful sound! Thanks!
Sounds top and easy to use
Like it used to be, very easy interface, good sound
Very Nice Vocoder
Der Vocoder ist wirklich gut. Ich brauche ihn jeden Tag für meine Produktionen für den Gesang und andere grossartige Dinge.
Great for experimenting - especially in parallel. Does not have the nasty raspiness as some of the vocoders other brands.
It’s really super neato!!!
A fantastic vocoder with terrible MIDI implementation
Must have plug -in for Producers
If you use this on a buss return it can be a sub harmoniser adding some beautiful subtle textures that will make tracks stand out more than the ordinary! IMO this is essential for techno which always requires elements of surprise without giving it away too much! Omid 16B
Another great plugin
If your looking for a vocoder this one does the job very well, not just on vocalsl, it also gives your drums some great effects especially with automation.
Biggest UAD disappointment
I don't know what this plugin is supposed to be.UAD specialises in emulations of classic gear and this isn't anywhere near any classic vocoders I've ever heard.
It's an opaque interface which doesn't assist under the hood tweaking and it is as far from easy to use as I can imagine.
Sadly it fails in it's sound production too-so weedy and uninspiring.
I really hope UA and Softtube kick each other's butts, revisit this nightmare and give us a version 2 for free that emulates classic gear, is easy to edit and sounds inspiring.
My only bit of UAD gear that is at the bottom of my list when I need something like this.
Very nice, easy to use.
I love it.
Nice plugin for creative vocal touches.
Must for Vocals!
I use this as and parallel effect in almost every session. Love it!
So So Great
I just bought this to try on various tracks and now I’m trying it out on everything and seeing what different outcomes I can get. Yet another great tool.
I like it but....
Sounds great over all but.... when it comes to vocals it just isn’t clear enough. Word pronunciation just isn’t really all that clear in comparison to say the Waves Morphoder or the Orange Vocoder. That’s my only gripe about it. It’s unfortunately a big deal for me when I have entire vocal tracks that are completely 100% wet vocoder. Having people constantly tell they can’t understand what I’m saying is a problem. I don’t have that problem with the Waves. I really wanted this to be the end of my search for a vocoder that I just rely on 100% of the time, but it’s not. If they could work on that and possibly update it, it would be perfect.
Works absolutely great!
Another top quality tool for your UAD platform. This is a very good sounding vocoder, very easy to use, also very vintage. Pure joy to use it on my upcoming album, definitely a great buy!
This is, at least for me, the best vocoder available today. Easy to use, and the sound is just as I remember vocoders from the past
