Learn about signal flow and controlling a simple vocoder.
- [Evan] Okay, so now we're going to talk about EVOC,…that's the vocoder that's included in Logic.…And I got to tell you, this is one heck of a good vocoder.…It's a lot of fun, there are a lot of different things…that you can do with it, so let's talk about…how to set this thing up, first of all.…For those of you who don't know,…the way that a vocoder works is basically that it…has an analysis signal that's coming in,…typically some sort of speech sound or…something like that if you're doing a vocal thing,…and then there's a synthesizer that's being modulated,…essentially, by that speech sound or…whatever analysis signal is coming in.…
And it modulates the sound in a way…that makes it sound like it's talking.…It's actually really cool.…When we first open up the vocoder,…however, it's just a synthesizer.…(chill synth music)…But I guess me of all people,…I shouldn't say just a synthesizer.…But yes, it's a cool synthesizer,…it sounds nice, it's got some different waves,…we can stretch some stuff around.…We can mess with the filter if we like.…
