The Metavox features a built-in oscillator section, complete with several kinds of modulation, that can be controlled by an incoming stereo signal. Alternatively, it can produce a vocoding effect on any external source plugged into the right input, with the controlling (voice) source plugged into the left input.
One-oscillator vocoder with four built-in waveforms (saw, rectified saw, square, and noise) in a compact box
Can vocode external sources, for polyphonic vocoding of an external synthesizer, guitar, etc.
Built-in modulation of the internal oscillator by any of five different mod sources
Tempo Sync keeps modulation in time with the music
Tap Tempo makes it easy to set the speed of modulation by tapping a beat on the top panel
Reset Mod lets you reset the phase of any modulation shape from its beginning
Uniform, friendly, uncomplicated user interface-no fiddling with complicated menus or "hidden" knobs
Stereo processing via four 1/4" unbalanced connectors
ModLink port, a cable-free connection that transfers digital audio and word clock to other ModFX units
Footswitch connection to control the bypass function
Ability to mount 3 ModFX boxes in the optional ModFX rack adapter
Input trim control to adjust the input level
Internal 28-bit digital processing
24-bit D/A and A/D conversion at 48kHz sampling rate for quiet, distortion-free effects
