it occurred to me while watching a plug-in from a music program that a vocoder is ‘simply’ a highly responsive eq ‘whose sliders are driven by a spectrum analysis’ of another signal. with this knowledge, one could easily create a vocoder with fmod if the eq is fast enough. I may look into this :)

A vocoder aims to replace the carrier of your voice with another carrier from another source. Thus, it changes the sound of the voice but not the message when you speak. It takes formant and carrier from external sources and splits them up in bands (a band is a region of frequencies, same thing an equalizer does). Then, the envelope (the modulation) is extraced from each formant band. This part is done by an envelope follower, an extreme low pass filter. Next, formant bands are modulated onto the carrier bands and the resulting bands are mixed together to the output signal. Messging with an eq will not do this

this is how madonna and kylie are still in the business. Vocoders have limitations….audio engineers still can’t make posh spice sound any more pleasing than a cat in a microwave.
