NEW VOCODER! We have updated the Vocoder algorithm to greatly improve its sound and performance. We have also added new features including:

- Separation and spread controls for moving the bands
- Formant freeze
- Adjustable band resonance and decay time
- Runs at full bandwidth

Because this is a major change to how the Vocoder works this release also includes a bank of patches that are designed to work with it. Please be aware that your original Ultranova Vocoder patches will sound different. You can load the new patches via the librarian. The Editor is also updated to support the new Vocoder features.

Using the new Vocoder patches:
1.     Download the Vocoder patches sysex file
2.     Import the sysex file in to the Ultranova Librarian
3.     Use the patch librarian to drag in the new patches to your preferred destination on Ultranova
