There is a vocoder effect which is a little different to a talk box but similar. There are details on setup here --> http://line6.com/support/message/219777#219777

I find it hard to get a good usable sound with this effect.
The effect is way to dynamic. When the overall sound is still
Quite low, I get occasional huge volume spikes and terrible
Feedback with some vowels. At the same time I still don't get
A clear, pronounced vocoder effect. Not usable at all.
I use a Variax 700 electric, connected with the VDIi cable and
A Sure SM Beta on the XLR input. Input selector 1 on Guitar/
Variax and input 2 on Same.
Tried it with only the vocoder effect in the chain and also with an
Amp in front or after. Does the addition of an amp model make any
relevant contributions to the tone at all?
I read somewhere that producing a fairly loud vocal signal
Makes a lot of difference. Is this true? And how about the tone/pitch
Of the vocal? Does that make any difference?
Would love to know how to make good use of this effect, also
In live situations! The feedback and occasional clipping with
Some vowels is just not ok, the way I use it now.

Can't comment on the effect you want (no experience) but found that a number of EQ's and Amps start compressing when input or output exceed -12dB. Found that my JTV comes in above -12dB if I set Input 2 to Same. Not sure how the '-12dB thing' applies to your setup, especially your Mic input but if you have the equipment it might be worth checking your input and output levels via USB output and a DAW (or level meter) as you enable effects and amp(s) step by step from input to output side. Hope this helps at least a little to get a handle on things. I would start turning your amp off and using bypass Volume before you are getting deeper into changing frequency content of your tone.
