Not just a conventional vocoder. The PGV offers a variety of controls and effects to expand what your guitar can do for your vocals. Now available in stompbox form!
The difference between the Parametric Guitar Vocoder and a traditional vocoder is that instead of merely modulating the guitar signal based on the vocal spectrum, The PGV does an analysis of the guitar signal, and measures the pitch and amplitude of all the individual strings.
Based on that data, the PGV does independent synthesis for all the six string signals, based solely on the vocal spectrum, and allowing controlled modification of the analyzed parameters.
The PGV uses cutting edge analysis algorithms to analyse the guitar signal by measuring the pitch and amplitude of each string, then uses them as the parameters for synthesising corresponding notes that each have the spectrum of the vocal input of the microphone.
The parameters can be modified for enabling complex synthesis of different special effects such as spectrum shift, voltage controlled filtering and vibrato.
The PGV is available in three versions, the big studio version, a Eurorack version, and the stompbox version. The latter two are functionally similar, with different enclosures. This stompbox version has an added footswitch for typical stage performance, allowing either pure bypass or active use.
The string pitch analysis has some limitations, because all the six string signals come stacked together in a standard guitar pickup signal. See the manual for a more detailed explanation.
