Hd500 Vocoder - Use Aux-in As Carrier Signal?

Recommended Posts

Hey all-

 

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.

 

Thanks!

Yes, you can have the aux input and guitar input be two seperate independat signal paths. You can mix them together at the end or pan one to 100% R and the other 100% left and send them out their own outputs as well.

So to use the vocoder I would need a mic plugged in + the aux in (carrier signal). This can all be it's own signal path?

OK, I think I understand what you're asking. You'd like guitar in signal chain #1 and mic+aux on signal chain #2. No, you can't do that. The mic is by itself. Your available options on each of the signal chains is:

 

Guitar
Mic
Aux
Guitar+Aux
Guitar+Variax
Guitar+Aux+Variax
Variax
Variax Mags
