Re: VoIS Modular: a new 15-channel vocoder in Eurorack format

Here's what the black panel looks like. You can also see the replaced text for WRP1 and WRP2 which are now called Spectral Shift and Spectral Tilt.

Re: VoIS Modular: a new 15-channel vocoder in Eurorack format

In case you are wondering why I haven't posted in a while: getting the required components takes longer than anticipated. Like many others, I am affected by the general component shortage experienced by the market. Unfortunately I won't be able to deliver the first 10 vocoders before the winter brea...

Great stuff, if you could post approximate power usage(needs 5v?) would be great. Keep up the good work
Will do. The plan is to add this to the technical specifications, once I add this chapter to the user's manual that I made available just yesterday.

Re: VoIS Modular: a new 15-channel vocoder in Eurorack format

How is this different from the 18-channel diy kit? Is it digital? Its definitely a lot smaller...lol. I might be interested in getting on the waiting list since I love the 18 channel so much. I'm glad you like the DIY rack mount vocoder. Yes, the VoIS Modular uses 16 bit ADCs and DACs. Otherwise it...

Re: FIRST RUN -- VoIS Modular: a new 15-channel vocoder in Eurorack format

The current version is not prepared for expansion. I have thought about that but this would have driven the price higher because of the required components. It requires AD and DA converters for each CV and corresponding opamps for level shifting. In the first incarnation I was looking for a solution...

Things are progressing very quickly. I now have six interested parties. For those who are on the fence, keep in mind that I will stop accepting orders once the sign-up list is full. I want to put my full attention on a smooth ramp of this modular.

Yes, this is a PCB with all SMD parts preassembled. They are really called PCBA. This PCBA is the same for all four options. Here's the frontside . And here's the backside . If you order the kit, you will have to solder in the through-hole parts: pots, switches, sockets, LEDs, etc. BTW, I expect the...

Re: What's your interest in a DIY modular vocoder?

Here's the fully assembled modular. I am making good progress. I'd say about 70...80% of the functionality is already coded. But the last 20% of work usually take the remaining 80% of the time.

Re: What's your interest in a DIY modular vocoder?

i love vocoders. i built the L-1 vocoder years ago and its fantastic, but i'd have another. interested if more details are put forward, but gonna have to hear a working example too. ;) The major difference is that the L-1 doesn't have channel controls. Freeze and silence bridging are also missing. ...

Oh, in terms of what those "mystery knobs" might do, I have some ideas: Mixing the bands up in a number of preset ways Setting change of random bands being held/frozen Applying some kind of spectral tilt to the signal I looked up spectral tilt. Now I know what this is about. Looks like there are no...

Re: What's your interest in a DIY modular vocoder?

I do love vocoders, but I'm not super sure I will ever use the channel gain pots - and they will increase the cost of building significantly. Count me partly in, but I'd want to hear how it sounds before I'd commit, I'm afraid. Great work, though! Yes, the pots increase the cost but I wouldn't call...

I'm interested in this new project.

I got into diy eurorack just when you were launching your 18 channel vocoder and was always blown away by it, though it was way too much build for me back then.
Thanks for your comment. This build will be much simpler. 8-)

Re: What's your interest in a DIY modular vocoder?

Question: what power cable is supposed to be delivered with a Eurorack module? Is it a 16-pin header (from the supply) to a 10-pin header (to the module)? Or is it a 10-pin to 10-pin connector? I suppose it's this one (found on Thonk's website), right? https://www.thonk.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014...

Re: What's your interest in a DIY modular vocoder?

OK, but isn't that a waste of valuable space if I don't use the remaining 1U as compared to the Eurorack format? Of course I can just increase the size of the panel vertically.
