Authentic Analogue Vocoder for Human Voice and Strings Ensemble Sounds from the 80's

Soaring analogue synth strings and rich synthesised choral effects, not to mention a killer vocoder via your favourite 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 1970's and '80s — now an octave shorter for a desk-friendlier footprint and greater portability. 

It's assignable layered/split string and choir sounds with analog bucket-brigade chorus explode into Vangelis analogue 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 analogue 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 favourite retrosynth.

The Behringer Vocoder VC340 offers a musical experience that has to be experienced to be believed.

Legendary Vocoder Users

Although originally patented by Bell Labs engineer Homer Dudley in 1939, the vocoder didn’t become part of the modern musical lexicon until the 1970's.

It has since been used by recording/performing artists Wendy Carlos, Phil Collins, Jean Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Kraftwerk, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Daft Punk, Isao Tomito and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, to name but a few.

The vocoder has also become a singular staple of major motion pictures and video games for its ability to create robot voices, special audio effects and much more.

True to the Original

Great care has been taken in engineering the VOCODER VC340, including the true to the original analogue 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 the 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 favourite microphone with the VOCODER VC340.

A dedicated XLR input connector is provided on the rear panel that allows any Low-Impedance (Lo-Z) dynamic mic (not incl.) to modulate the onboard synthesised 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 analogue BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology, which hands the signal off across multiple processing stages for the ideal amount of luscious thickening.

Controls & Connectivity

We just can’t help ourselves – like you, we’re gear-heads, too. For those who want the numbers, VOCODER VC340 has 32 knobs, faders and switches, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation.

Input and output connections include: Mic In; Phones; External Synth In; Control (Vocoder Hold & Pitch pedal inputs); Audio Out (Mono & Stereo with 3-position Level switch); and MIDI (I/O and Thru) via USB/MIDI DIN.

Unleash Your Imagination

When it comes to not just pushing envelopes but creating them, VOCODER VC340 gives your imagination its voice – and it’s so very affordable.

When modern performance calls for that classic analogue sound – it calls for the Behringer VOCODER VC340!
