Korg VC-10 : AlanForPresident's user review
"Dont need it, but it is still good."
The Kog VC 10 is a vocoder, I am not really into vintage vocoders that much but I must admit this one is petty cool. A buddy of mine has one of these and still uses it to this day, I get the chance to go over there and mess with it from time to time and it makes time pass fast and its a lot of fun. I just personally don’t have a use for it in the style of music that I am trying to create, also I do already have a vocoder that I purchased a few years ago that is newer from korg, just in case I do need to use it .
The Korg VC 10 is a very well built machine, its very easy to understand if you know how vocoding works you will have no issues learning and using this vocoder. The machine its self is pretty compact but I don’t think its small enough to label it as “portable”. It has an odd tall shape to it which makes it difficult to take around with you and I don’t think it has handles or anything on it, its not that heavy though and you could carry it somewhere if you needed to.
You can use this VC 10 to breath some life into your music if you are in search of some different stuff. There are some cool things that you can do with it, I just don’t have a need for it as of right now. It also has some good filters that you can use as well, this vocoder has been used by a lot of musicians over the last 20 years or so. It has 32 well built keys.
You will love this if you are into vocoding, but that would be the only reason that you would want to purchase it. If I bought it , it would just take up space and be a waste of money. I don’t like vintage vocoders because newer vocoders can do so much more.
