Mic preamp not strong enough => vocoder doesn't work
by Melodyshine on 2013-01-02 11:55:19

I think there are many people who don't get the vocoder to work. I have the same problem with this mic http://www.thomann.de/gb/superlux_pra_d1.htm">http://www.thomann.de/gb/superlux_pra_d1.htm">http://www.thomann.de/gb/superlux_pra_d1.htm When I use a normal mic preset I can get enough gain through a compressor. But it isn't possible to use a compressor for the vocoder

Of course I have turned the mic preamp level to the maximum level.

Same here really. I wish we could have more control over the signal chain that delivers the mic signal to the vocoder.

Yep.. I have struggled with the vocoder too (though I'ts not an effect I really want to use, but I did have a good go at getting it to work decently).

I have seen a youtube clip with what I recall as being a HD used for a livin' on a prayer cover, so I guess it MUST work if your lucky enough to set it up right.
