The Organic Vocoder, First and Last step for Vocoding.

Inspired by the EMS Flagship Vocoder ( EMS 5000 -1976-) , XILS-lab used the knowledge acquired during the creation of the emulation of both the VCS3 synthesizer and the VP300 VocoderPlus to develop the XILS 5000 Vocoder Model!

Note: The XILS Vocoder 5000 is a plug-in and is not available as a standalone application

Say It With Music – XILS 5000 Vocoder

A Vocoder is an effect that takes two input signals and combines them to create one output signal. The first signal is called the Modulator, and the second is called the Carrier. Typically, vocals are used as the modulator (But you can also use drums, percussive material, or any other musical signal, like an orchestra or a complete track).

A Synthesizer is used as a Carrier (Oscillator with different waveforms, that can be played with chords, white noise… or anything with a rich harmonic spectrum).

The Modulator signal is then split into several Frequency bands using a Bandpass Filter Bank. The same bank is used to split the Carrier signal. The levels detected in the modulator’s spectrum are then applied to the carrier spectrum, resulting in what we commonly know as “Robotic Voices”, when a vocoder is used in the simplest way.

For good results, understandable and clear synthetic voices, 22 bands are used in our legacy EMS 5000 model. (Less bands were also commonly found in other hardware vocoders: 10, 12 bands in most limited budget-line units.)

A Vocoder, What is this?

A Vocoder is a synthesizer that accepts an external sound source, a musical instrument or prerecorded signal, so that you can process it, with or without the keyboard, into a huge variety of sounds.

The Human voice, the most variable sound of all, can be fed into the Vocoder, so that you can alter its pitch, Tone, Vibrato, and all its characteristics, allowing you to synthetize a Choir from a single voice, or to create melodies from ordinary speech.

You can also process Drums, percussive elements, or Guitars and… every kind of synthesizer as well, to breathe some analog life into them, or completely reshape them.  You can even derive pure synth patterns from… drumloops! Everything is possible!

  • Clarity, Purity: The XILS Vocoder 5000 emulates the sophisticated filtering techniques and incredibly complex circuitry of its analog counterpart to achieve the same organic sound, precision and… clarity.
  • Easy to use for beginners, yet incredibly powerful for Veterans: The user interface offers a standard single panel view. Everything is there, right in front of you, with a great number of presets to get you started. Should you want, or need, to go deeper, the Logo Center Panel will switch to a vast selection of advanced panels displaying the advanced parameters of the XILS Vocoder 5000 module you wish to explore and experiment with. And there are dozens of advanced parameters, for your joy.
  • Back to the 21st Century: Because it’s from XILS-lab, it offers many advanced features that its ancestor could not have offered at that time: the number of Bands, Filter types, Filter’s Emphasis and Emphasis ponderation, more Slew Rate mods, more Freeze mods, 2 LFOs (Original had none), Detailed FM and PWM, more Oscillator Waveforms, an improved Input detector (Sibilants), Gate input etc., etc.

You can also populate the Matrix by freely drawing lines, and it has its own presets. (This is very useful once you’ve found the perfect template for a certain voice.)

Modules

  • The Matrix Patch Area – the patch area allows you to connect any band of the analysis filter bank to any band of the synthesis filter bank.
  • Oscillators and the Noise – Inspired by the EMS VCS3 oscillators, already emulated in the acclaimed XILS 3, XILS 4 synthesizers, the XILS Vocoder 5000 provides two warm sounding, clear and transparent oscillators.
  • Voice/UnVoice and Slew Rate +Freeze – separates, smoothly but firmly, the sibilant from the voiced part of the input voice, the XILS Vocoder 5000 provides an easy but accurate way to choose which generator must be used as Carrier while vocoding: the Oscillators or the Noise.
  • The Frequency Shifter – this effect shifts the whole spectrum of the incoming signal(s) by a certain frequency.
  • The Mixer and the Vu-Meters – when hearing is not enough, the XILS Vocoder 5000 will give you great visual feedback.

Features

The XILS Vocoder 5000 provides all the modules of its legendary ancestor … And more:

  • A Matrix Patch Area (22×22 or 20×20)
  • Two Synthesizer cores
  • Two oscillators per core, modeled on the EMS VCS3 oscillator

What People Think About 72% off “5000 Vocoder” by XILS-lab

  • 'Presets are fantastic, the overall end result is very pleasant and great-sounding, and the editing possibilities are almost endless. After all, you will not use a vocoder every day in your productions, so having such a beast for those special occasions is a pure blessing'

  • "I don't usually get that excited about plug-ins, but both of these virtual instruments from XILS Lab (Vocoder 5000 especially) have opened up a huge range of sonic doors that I would not have been able to even imagine, more less open. I highly recommend V+ and Vocoder 5000 to those who are looking to push their sonic palette into new dimensions"
