Interesting part with very many possibilities - but not everyone's thing.

Wolfgang142, 13.03.2013
Have YouTube videos with the Electro Harmonix Talking Machine seen and I was clear, the thing I must have. I'm talking about talk box sounds and key articulation, which is based on the modulation ability of the voice. And many of the Youtube videos to the EH Talking Machine show exactly that - anticipation!

The unit comes in a very solid design, has a wide range of possibilities - all you can wish for: double knobs, several individually adjustable presets, insert for an additional effect device, expression pedal connection, stereo output. .. Great.

Not so nice:
On the device itself there is no reference to the second operating level, how to get there and what the potentiators have for a function. This gives a point deduction during the operation, even if in the included instruction manual everything is necessary. For the sake of design, a simple means to support the user during the training has been dispensed with.

And this training is necessary. The factory presets give an impression of the capabilities of the device. Only: For my perception, all these sounds sound like a nice, but not serious toy. For good talkbox effects and a characteristic car-wah (or expression pedal controlled wah) one has to "hineinknien" properly into the possibilities of the Talking Machine.

In view of the many parameters and their combinations, I find it very time consuming to find the "sweet spot", where everything fits. The YouTube videos to the device show that this is possible, but to me this is too much "action" for an effect that can be used in practice rather seldom - even if you like him (like me) very much; The talking effect is, in my opinion, not a constantly present basic sound, but rather an ITüpfelchen, that has to make itself rare to work.

Then I learned something with the EH Talking Machine: If you take the talking sound seriously, it is a very personal part of your sound, because it has a lot to do with the identification with your own voice. The formats of the sound must fit to me, otherwise it annoys.
To me at least the formants do not fit, which I could elicit the Talking Machine.

Conclusion: The part makes as an effect a good job. Anyone who simply needs a talking sound in their setup is very well served with the EH Talking Machine - simply because of the possibility to store several presets.

Creating your own sounds is possible, but not quite easy. If you want to create a personal sound, you should try it. But who (like myself) do not like the basic formations (voices) of the device, will hardly be happy with it. You just have to try this out.

In short: the device is good, but in the last line of the table is asked for satisfaction. And I am unfortunately disappointed.

Tr s good sound on Theremin

Sébastien45, 15.02.2013
This type / vocal type effect is normally intended for the guitar, but I use it on a Theremin, mostly on a fixed vowel value. The sound is amazing, I get a voice of type "opera", very convincing in the treble, like the voice of a mezzo-soprano singer. In the bass, I even manage to transform the sound into a kind of Tibetan "mutant" llama voice. Very interesting and musical.
