We do a lot of vocoding and talk box. We do it with a physical talk box, with a DX100 sound piped through. It's more difficult than I bargained for, because you have this fucking tube in your mouth and you're trying to say esses and tees and shit. It's like having one of those things that the dentist chucks in your mouth to suck up the spit, except that it's not sucking up the spit!more
This box sounds amazing and an entire record could be produced on it. Bought it for the drum machine and DX7 patch compatibility, but the tweakability of the synth makes this full of fun surprises. Resonant filter, distortion, and motion sequencer take the DX200 to places the DX7 could never go.
This compact synth can load all the classic DX7 patches and can be picked up for around 200€. Additionally it has handson controls (knobs), a sequencer and some (surprisingly usable) drumsounds. If only I'd find a good editor/librarian, I'd give it 5* as the DX200 is not fully editable without an editor and the original editor was made for yesteryears computers...
