BeepStreet Intros DerVoco ‘Vintage Vocoder’ For iOS

BeepStreet has introduced DerVoco, a vintage vocoder emulation for iOS.

DerVoco uses analog modeled components including filters, envelope followers and companders to create a warm vintage sound.


  • AUv3 Audio Effect and Audio Music Effect, works in all AUv3 compatible hosts.
  • Internal polyphonic VCO may be used as a carrier and can be controlled via MIDI, when plugin is loaded as AU MFx.
  • In special “input mode” carrier and modulator signals are mixed in left and right channels of stereo input signal. This way any synth plugin (e.g. Zeeon) may be used as a carrier signal.
  • 11 or 15 bands with onscreen equalizer.
  • Controllable filter resonance makes the sound smooth or sharp and ringing.
  • Built in compressor and noise gate.
  • Optimized: 60 filters take 4% CPU on latest iPads.

Here’s an unofficial video demo, via thesoundtestroom:

Pricing and Availability

DerVoco is available now for US $4.99. See the BeepStreet site for audio demos.

    1. Have you seen analog vocoder with 40 bands? ๐Ÿ˜€ Its not FFT, but tons of filters and envelope followers.. And it sounds different, yes mr. MK ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Those Audio Units are getting more and more interesting. For this one use a carrier app, make a subgroup in AUM and there you go, lots of different sounds possible.

  2. That’s called progress, stub. Hardware vocoders were replaced by software. Now software and hardware in a different form factor. iOS is going through a similar evolution that synths did in 80s to 90s, but at a more accelerated pace.
