The battery-powered unit offers direct control over both pitch and format, providing a variety of male/female gender characteristics, electronic timbres, robot voices and more. Each effect has a selection of one-touch variations for quick access to different vocoder characteristics, various lo-fi effects, multi-part harmonies, and various reverbs and delays. Effects can also be chained, and users can create and set their own presets.
