Expensive toys, fun and surprise

rekla, 19.06.2016
I had the boss VO-1 in the first send, because I was interested in the talk box effect. But also the vocoder effect made me curious, since I have so far no experience with the sound and mode of such devices could make.

In summary, we can say:
The vocoder effect works very well and is synonymous sound a positive surprise. It 's really fun to play around at home. On the other hand, the range of applications is limited for me. I have a few pieces of our set a few places rausgesucht, where I can use it as a surprise effect. Less is here, but when he comes, he is an eye-catcher and listener.

The use of the Talkbox is somewhat more habituation. You have to rumble and practice something with the sounds to get a sound. To the original with the hose is not enough, so 1 star trigger in the sound. Also, you have to take a disciplined breathing technique, otherwise you can easily escape the air, or it becomes even dizzy. Still a nice side feature that can be used.

On Stage, I have solved the microphone connection of the VO-1 with the K & M 23550 microphone supplementary splint. So I have two mics before the nose, one for the singing, the other in the VO-1.

We would already be at the last, unfortunately a bit negatively affected point. Starting from a certain stage volume or at small locations, the micro of the VO-1 intercepts the ambient noise more or less loudly and returns it via the effect that has just been set. This can make the effect unusable in certain live situations. Here a controllable noise gate would have been useful. The microphone adjustment switch is not enough for me. I use as a preventive measure a microphone with Superniere (Shure Beta 57A). This does not quite fix the problem.

Conclusion:
An expensive toy that makes fun and surprise the audience and bandmates. Who has the money over and is ready for a few Vocoder announcements in the evening and a pseudo-talkbox solo satte 249.- EUR - which should strike. I've done it and have fun.

The classic Talkbox gets strong competition

31.03.2016
my first impression:
Finally again an effect box as before.
No sensed 1000 presets, through which one has to go through, and finally dissatisfied;
No Midi or USB connection and the associated driver problems, no complicated manual, which has to be read three times.
What one should know and internalize:
The different functions of the Knobs Color and Tone are dependent on the mode.
With ADVANCED and VINTAGE mode you can create classic or modern vocoder sounds impressively with the guitar, bass or other instruments.
In the TALKBOX mode one can realize the typical TALKBOX sound, but just uncomplicated without hose and driver box.
Quite simply, it is not, since I still need a microphone (with XLR - connection).
If I want to sing with the same microphone live before, at the same time or after the effects use, I must be able to split the microphone signal before the input either or switch accordingly.
In talk mode, there is a technical difference, which one should perhaps know.
In the classic talkbox, the mostly distorted guitar sound was blown through the tube into the mouth, then into the microphone
Was reflected. The sound (formant) could be deformed by a pure, silent movement of the mouth.
At V01, this external sound source does not exist.
That is, I have to speak or sing correctly to achieve the Talkbox effect.
However, you do not need to strain and scream because the microphone input is very sensitive.
After some practice and adjusting his playing style, the results are exhilarating and can addictive.
With the CHOIR mode (no microphone signal necessary) I personally can not start so much.
Here, for example, you can support and enrich broken chords of the guitar.
