Vocoder problem

Permanent link to this post Posted by bellamabel2018 » Wed May 16, 2018 3:48 am

I'm trying to make my voice sound on one note using Vocoder.

I'm taking 440Hz Sine tone as right channel and my voice as left.
Then I use vocoder with the default settings.
The result I get does sound on 440Hz, but I can't understand the phrase I'm saying.
I tried different vocoder settings but all I could do was make my voice sound robotic...

What could I do?
What settings could I apply to vocoder?

Any thoughts are appreciated.
Thank you.

It's not possible to make comprehensible speech with one frequency with no harmonics.
Try 440Hz sawtooth instead of sine.

Also if you want clear speech, try a high-resolution vocoder plugin e.g. mda talkbox

You can also not go the whole way. Mix a small portion of the original clean voice back in.
