True to the original
Great care has been taken in engineering Vocoder VC340, including the true-to-the-original analog circuitry, which makes it extremely easy for you to recreate the classic vocoder sounds that made a tremendous impact on synth-based rock. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives Vocoder VC340 its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat voice and string ensembles to stunning effects – and all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination.

You provide Vocoder VC340's unique voice

Unlike the original vocoders of the 1970s and 80s, you get to use your favorite microphone with Vocoder VC340. A dedicated XLR input connector is provided on the rear panel that allows any low-impedance (lo-z) dynamic mic (sold separately) to modulate the onboard synthesized sounds.

Multiple-stage chorus

Nothing fattens up the sound of a vocal choir or string section better than a truly great chorus! That's why Vocoder VC340's chorus features authentic analog BBD (bucket brigade delay) technology, which hands the signal off across multiple processing stages for the ideal amount of luscious thickening.

Analog String Machine/Vocoder

Soaring analog synth strings and rich synthesized choral effects, not to mention a killer vocoder via your favorite XLR mic, await you in the Behringer Vocoder VC340 synthesizer. The VC340 is Behringer's take on a formidable vocoder and string machine of the late 1970s and '80s — now an octave shorter for a desk-friendlier footprint and greater portability. Its assignable layered/split string and choir sounds with analog bucket-brigade chorus explode into Vangelis analog goodness and modern EDM fare. And by plugging in a standard dynamic mic, The VC340 rewards you with timeless Moroder/Daft Punkian vocoder effects and creative modulation over any analog signal. The VC340's 37-key size plays easy and travels light. Wood side panels and hands-on controls give the Vocoder VC340 all the character of your favorite retrosynth.
