The Roland VP-330 is a paraphonic ten band vocoder and string machine made by Roland Corporation from 1979 to 1980.
The VP-330 shapes its envelope and filters by any sound source fed into it. So your voice or even a drum loop can be used which is then applied to another sound source, typically a synth pad. This creates a very unique and famous robot-like sound.
In addition to the 10-band vocoder, the VP-330 has a string synth section, choir and a human-voice sound and its 3 sound sections offer a few different presets that can be slightly edited with de-tuning and vibrato.
This unit has had a BOSS GE-10 10-band graphic equaliser professionally installed in the top panel. Includes original Roland hard shell case.
