Description

In prep: the Electrix Warp Factory Vocoder is in preparation. Please email to ask for further details


Rated as one of the best hardware vocoders, the¬†Electrix Warp Factory packs all the basic vocoder ingredients into a neat 2U box that can be rack-mounted or used standalone. Part of a range of neat effects from the now-defunct Electrix company it’s quite a rare device nowadays

the Warp Factory has a front-panel microphone input

“The sound quality of this thing is excellent. I use this vocoder in a fairly low noise studio set up, so if this thing was at all noisy, I would hear it. It sounds very crisp and clean and can create anything from very intelligible vocal samples to whacked-out special effects sounds. I also have a classic Roland SVC-350 vocoder in my studio that I’m sure some of you would kill for, but don’t kill anyone yet! IMHO the warp factory sounds much cleaner, and allows for a greater variety of tonal possibilities than the SVC-350 ever did, and it costs about half as much too”

“This thing kicks ass! It’s very sturdy, it sounds clean, it has realtime and MIDI control over all its parameters, and the sounds that you can get out of it are limitless”

“I’ve recorded three noise albums with this thing so far. It’s wicked. We’ll run it through a guitar amp and turn on the distortion and fiddle with the robot knob and all the warp controls while giggling like little girls into the microphone. It has a great interface, just knobs, which is perfect for use as a noise instrument. It’s even a white noise generator with built in effects! All this in addition to being the greatest vocoder ever made. You can put anything into this thing and it’ll sound great”

“it seems really unique in the sense that it can produce trippy vocal parts rather than robotic stuff. It seems really expressive and lofi in a good way”
