Junkie XL Pushes This Vocoder To The Limit
In this video, we watch the one and only Junkie XL give a demo of the KORG Vocoder VC10, a classic polyphonic synth that delivers some hunky, bold-sounding timbres. While the synth is ultimately what is creating the sound, it’s obvious that he knows how to make a synthesizer tick.

In terms of sophistication and overall parameters, this vocoder does have slight restrictions from the traditional synthesis capabilities found on most vocoders and synths today. Despite that, the Vocoder VC10 still sounds amazing, especially with its filter resonance as you can hear in the video.
