Roland shared this playlist of videos on getting started with the new VP-03 Vocoder.
The new VP-03 ($349) takes cues from the classic VP-330 Vocoder Plus, using analog component modeling to emulate the original’s fusion of synthesized sound and the human voice.
The VP-03 has vocoder, human voice, and string sound sources on board. It also includes a gooseneck XLR microphone, and can be paired with the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit.
New features include 16 Chord Memory setups for one-finger chord playback, plus a new Voice Step Sequencer for dynamic rhythmic effects.
Alongside line and headphones outs, the VP-03 also includes MIDI I/O for connecting with other devices and 24-bit DAW audio interface capability via a Micro USB connector.
All three new Roland Boutique units run on 4 x AA batteries or USB bus power. Each module also includes a powered mini-speaker.
