Was this the vocoder, or the resonant filter unit? I was under the
that a vocoder will only modify the existing source by imposing the
on it, and not severely add gain. However, a resonant filter can find a
node at the filter frequency and go into instant gain chain brain drain
This was my first experience with the electrix filter factory
a year or so ago. I walked up to it and just tweaked the knobs. Didn't
seem to do much so I turned up the "resonance" knob. Wham! I put a
wave into that little music store that can probably still be seen in the
drywall. What amazes me is that I didn't get immediately banned from the
So perhaps on the VOX+Elctronix fest stage the vocoder was running into
the filter factory and
happened to put out signal at the resonating frequency?
