Electro-Harmonix Stereo Talking Machine Vocal Formant Filter Pedal
The Electro Harmonix Talking Machine is a Vocal Formant Filter, which to you and I means we can make our guitars sound almost human! EHX describe this as "like a talkbox without the mic". The Talking Machine manipulates your guitar signal to make it sound like various (selectable) vowel sounds. You've heard of "wah" how about a bit of "ee-er", or some "bb" or even a little "ow-ee"! It's all in the Talking Machine.
Here's what Electro Harmonix say about the Talking Machine
The programmable Stereo Talking Machine, Vocal Formant Filter, presents creative vowel shaping that is controlled by the player's dynamics. Nine selectable Voices deliver vowel sounds such as AH-OO and OW-EE, as well as Bassballs and wah-type dynamic filters. The Voices can be shaped with individual Attack and Decay controls while Sensitivity adjusts the envelope response. The resulting effects mimic characteristics of human speech and create sounds that are both organic and harmonically rich. As its name implies, the Stereo Talking Machine possesses true stereo outputs as well as an Effects Loop. An Expression Pedal Input provides real time control over filter sweeps, while nine preset locations let you store and instantly recall favorite programs. The Stereo Talking Machine delivers compelling sound shaping capability with advanced control.
