Vocoder effect in Reason?? "California Love" by 2Pac

Just trying to figure out a way to replicate the Talkbox Vocoder effect that is being used in the Track by 2Pac, California Love.

http://youtu.be/uWbXQQG9B6c

Im wondering if anyone has had any success with it beofre.

What sort of sound should i use to feed the BV512 Voder in reason to get that unique effect on the vocal.

Thanks in Advance

James Bermingham

It's easy!
You need:
- Subtractor Sine-Wave
- Midi Keyboard
- A Ghetto Talkbox
- Audio cables
- a mic

--> It is not a Vocoder FX!

Thanks for the response.

Awh. So it can not be done under the Reason Umbrella. I would need a talkbox piece of hardware?? I would have presumed it was some type of Vocoding that Reason could somehow manage

Well there is an Idea for the PHeads for an RE.

Talkbox

Sure can it be done with Reason!!!

You only need a Sine-Waveform Synth, your mouth to form the sound, some cables, a mic and a really cheap ghetto talkbox! Nowadays you can record your voice in Reason, right???

Ahhh, I understand, you will pay for a RE that will do tha job!
Ok, most DAW-users have a soundcard, a DAW (maybe Reason), a mic, cables.

You only need a talkbox (on ebay about 50 - 70 bucks NEW)... or a ghetto talkbox for 10 bucks, search youtube!

You never get a VST or RE that can emulate a talkbox!
Thats a fact, buy a little piece of hardware and thats it.

Zapp, Roger, Bon Jovi are all use a talkbox!

I'm really curious why it should be a sine wave?? I know the talkbox is built to let a guitar "speak". Originally it was closed a box with a speaker playing back the guitar signal and a vacuum cleaner pipe you put in your mouth. By "speaking" that means by changing the resonant cavity the guitar's sound is modulated in its frequency spectrum. I think this could be compared to some kind of formant filters like in Thor. But: using a sine wave, there's no frequency spectrum at all to be altered! It's just one frequency that can be louder or lower. Am I wrong???

Cheers. I had a quick look through that, but I was hoping Propellerhead might have the answer under the hood of Reason somewhere. After all, that what these soft studios are claiming these days, that they can emulate any of their hardware counter parts. Plus anything that takes away from music creativity in writing music, the PHeads like to tackle those issues for us.

I've emailed James Bernard at ProductSpecialists. So hopefully he gets it and can figure this one out. I don't think there is anything that can beat James Bernard when it comes to Reason. It's a chance for him to "have some fun" as he likes to say

Neptune is a good one to use, I put it on my vocal track and play the chords in on the neptune track. This gives you some nice harmonics. Not sure how extreme you could take it with neptune but use as a send fx n get a nice level between dry n wet signal.
In answer to your question i'd say it's definitely possible in reason

I found some tips for the reason vocoder anyway.
Some tips for you here?
