81 - Px - Characters

These presets will turn your vocal track into a different character…sometimes VERY different! From general robotics to a split personality.

#8110 Aerobics Teacher

Around here, at least, they use these cheap belly-pack amplifiers with head mics. Of course this patch can also be any other small PA system. Mono in, stereo out.

#8119 Split Personality

Swaps high and low bands. Try the first2 presets on voice; next 3 on music (Martian Pop on opening of John Lennon’s Imagine…). Or use Reset to zero and then manually slide Shift and Mix together –they’re ganged– for a going nuts effect. Selectable in, stereo out.

#8120 The Buzz

Pitch-detecting and formant-shifting vocoder. Okay, what that really means: it creates a buzz that takes human vocal characteristics from the speech input. Adjust pitch detector on EXPERT page for the narrowest range that still tracks input. Selectable in, mono out.
