Zynaptiq has announced the release of the “zynaptified edition” of the revered Prosoniq vocoder plugin.

A massive upgrade to the classic, Orange Vocoder IV combines 24 hightech vocoding algorithms, multi-algorithm pitch tuning effects, a powerful virtual analog synthesizer, flexible routing, and a fast and fun workflow with no-compromise sound quality, optimized for maximum presence, punch, and intelligibility.

“We are incredibly proud to present what we believe to be the ultimate vocoder plug-in.” said Zynaptiq CEO, Denis Gökdag. “With it’s comprehensive and flexible feature-set, ORANGE VOCODER IV will inspire you for years to come!”

A vocoder takes two input sounds, and combines their timbral qualities to create a new, hybrid sound. The most well-known example of a vocoder in action are singing/speaking synthesizers, a sound made famous by bands like Daft Punk and Kraftwerk, among many others.

With a sonic bandwidth ranging from warm & vintage to crystal-clear, laser-focused, buttersmooth and utterly, completely destroyed, Orange Vocoder IV is much more than just a vocoder, and excels at creating innovative vocal sounds, electric grooves, mutated colorful instruments, frantic robots, mind-bending sci-fi SFX and haunting ambient drones for music production, sound design, and composition.

Orange Vocoder IV features

  • Vocoder plug-in with semi-modular architecture.
  • Stereo vocoder module with 24 unique, high intelligibility vocoding algorithms, including two zero-latency options modes, each with a distinct sonic character, formant shifting, EQ, expansion, and HF Through and Unvoiced circuits.
  • Powerful built-in synthesizer with FM, sync, ring modulation, polyphonic distortion, 9voice unison operation and an AI-powered preset generator.
  • 5 automatic tuning effect algorithms available in parallel to the vocoder.
  • Audio freezing, reverb and chorus effects modules.
  • Flexible, semi-modular routing, lightning-fast workflow, streamlined ergonomics and a stunning look & feel.
