WaveFront Audio Intros 16+ Channel Analog Vocoder

At SynthPlex 2019, Kazike (Gerd Peun) had one of his impressive modular synth designs on display – the dualĀ Club Of The Knobs (COTK) systems of LoLa Music Studios.

Kazike performed at the event on the modular system, but he was also at SynthPlex to introduce a new brand, WaveFront Audio, and their first product, the Sixteen Channel Spectral Vocoder:

The WaveFront Audio Sixteen Channel Spectral Vocoder builds on the classic Bode analog vocoder design, considered by many to be one of the best-sounding vocoders ever created.


  • Voiced/Unvoiced detection
  • Integrated Noise Generator for wind voices
  • Automatic recognition of symmetrical or asymmetrical program signals
  • Input gain up to 60dB (low-noise microphone amp)
  • Overload indicators for program or carrier signals
  • Audio modifier for program signals (Bass/Treble)
  • External unvoiced signal input
  • Control/Gate signal if unvoiced is detected
  • Manual freeze function of analyzer channels
  • Manual gain control and LED indicators for all analyzer channels

WaveFront Audio also introduced the Spectral Channel Manager, an optional add-on for the vocoder for enhanced channel modulations.

Details on his modular designs are available at the COTK site, while details on the vocoder are available at the WaveFront Audio site.

  1. 5U is such a good size to work with. Great to see some innovation with the Channel Manager. A good working vocoder is a thing of wonder and a technology that joins the world after saving it- FACT
