Technical specifications

The Korg VC-10 is an analogue vocoder launched in 1978. Vocoding refers to voice encoding of speech and singing with musical synthesis, simply explained a microphone keyboard. It gained popularity in the 1970s following utilisation by bands such as Kraftwerk and Electric Light Orchestra.

The VC-10 features 32 note polyphony (one oscillator per key, individually tuneable), 20 analysis bands, ensemble mode with speed and depth controls (a bi-phase chorus function), accent bend control (adds a slight pitch wavering effect so that the sound produced is more like a human voice), octave-up control (extends the range of the keyboard), and tune control as well as various settings relating to input and output mix.

The product has endured basic start-up tests; it powers up, buttons work. There was no endurance or performance testing with media.
