Bitsonic has released Cannabis vocoder for WIndows – a ‘funny plugin’ that they say can completely change the sound of your vocal track.
The mono version is an effect plugin, meaning it works as a VST effect, rather than as an instrument. Using the effect on the vocal track, the software automatically tracks the tune of the vocal track, and calculates the pitch of the changed sound as well.
The poly version is a VST instrument application, where you can load the vocal track into the software and, using, the MIDI channel you can use it as a polyphonic vocoder.
Here’s a demo of Cannabis in action:
Cannabis Vocoder is a free download from the Bitsonic site.
