Curious if you can have one signal path be a vocoder with the carrier signal being a synth plugged in via aux in rather than a guitar.
So the programmed synth parts would control the pitch and sound rather than the guitar.
Essentially I want my guitar to be one signal path with it's own effects and then the 2nd signal path be the vocoder filter + synth via aux in.
My setup right now is that I use an EHX V256. Plug my mic in and plug an outside synth in via 1/4".
Sounds great, but I get some ducking and squashing since I have no compression or gate on the vocoder.
Rather than buy more pedals or a compressor, I'm considering the HD500 which would allow me to put these effects on the vocal path.
