BV512 Vocoder in Reason

Welcome back to another article about the BV512 vocoder. In this case, I will mainly look at self-vocoded sounds and how you can make use of the BV512 vocoder to create a different type of artifacts even while using the original sound you were using. In a nutshell, the BV512 vocoder translates pushes the input sound into the additive realm more or less. With that in mind, we can (when needed) make a blend from subtractive towards additive synth while using the vocoder in this context. To be fairly honest here, the BV512 is not the perfect vocoder while applying this technique since it shows 'weird' artifacts in the FFT-mode inside this device. But from a reason build in device perspective, it is the only way to do this. And as long there are no real other Rack Extensions that implement a vocoder in this type of context we'll just have to keep using this device until one gets developed (I would personally love to get one that is a native Rack Extension device for sure). But ok, this is a personal preference anyway. And I know parsec can be set up as a vocoded type of setup, but it is not the same thing.

The BV512 Vocoder is an old technique to change the voice using 2 different wave forms. In most standard ways, vocoding was used for changing a persons vocals. However, in the digital world the vocoder can also be used just as an additional effect processor. I mean, why can one not vocode a piano for instance? It can. The BV512 Vocoder in Reason is probably also one of the hardest effects to understand. Since most effect processors inside of reason are mainly having an input signal, the processor ..
