This Vocoder is seen in a feature by Wired where Tyco shows his synth collection. The article says: > Hansen's Korg VC-10 Vocoder is rare in that it's paired with a microphone created specifically to be used with the synthesizer. Most people just bought a cheaper third-party microphone to use with the VC-10 rather than the one made by Korg. "That mic might be the rarest thing in the studio," Hansen said. A photo of the Korg VC-10 Vocoder is also shown in the XLR8R article, "In the Studio: Tycho," in which his studio in San Francisco is displayed. http://www.xlr8r.com/gear/2012/01/studio-tychomore
"Zawinul did not stop at the Wurlitzer and Fender Rhodes electric pianos he used in the 1960s. By the late 1960s he was extending his sonic palette with effects like phase shifters, Echoplexes, wah-wahs and ring modulators, and when synthesizers came on the market he was among the first to buy one (the EMS Putney). The list of synthesizers he has used since then — among them the ARP 2600, Rhodes Chroma, Oberheim Four-voice and Eight-voice, ARP Quadra, Sequential Prophet 5 and Prophet T8, Korg Trident, Oberheim Xpander, Korg VC10 vocoder, Emu Emulator, Casio CZ101, Korg DW8000, DSS1, DSM1 and M1 — reads like a synth museum's treasure list."more
