"Original impressive vocoder realized by Harald Bode then rebadged by Moog"


HISTORY  Moog 16 Channel Vocoder (bode) an instrument which continuously analyzes the timbral characteristics of one sound (Program) and impresses these timbral characteristics upon a second signal (Carrier). Originally created by Harald Bode in a custom version, later the project was rebranded by Bon Moog with some performance modification. The original Bode is very sought-after.

-> in 2020 Moog released a remake of the 16 channel vocoder

SYNTHESIS The Bode 16 Vocoder offers 16 patchable bands ranging from 50 to 5,080 Hz for optimal encoding of the fundamental spectral characteristics of the human voice. In addition, a selectable DIRECT mode passes an additional high frequency channel (above 5,080 Hz) to the vocoder output for better degree of vocal intelligibility. 

Sample & Hold pressing this function, the tonal characteristics of that sound will be held until the switch is returned to the out position. This function is particularly useful in creating sustained vocal phrases without pausing for breath and can be controlled via remote footswitch. 

Hiss, Buzz, and Balance Selectable Hiss (sibilance), Buzz (plosive), and Balance controls allow you to fine tune the fundamental details of aelectronic voice. features six shapes (sinewave, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, random, smooth random), frequency can be slaved to midi clock with variable time dividers. Also special retrig mode of free flown. Destinations can be set freely also to matrix modulation

PATCHBAY  it is possible to patch the vocoder with other analog gear, allowing you to select any frequency range of the Program and impose those characteristics upon any frequency range of the Carrier.
