E.L.O. used the EMS, and E.L.O. is who got me interested in vocoders. I've always wanted one, but of course, they're rare and expensive. In stumbling about the internet searching for a Paia, I saw that you have an EMS. Of COURSE you do, you always have the cool shit. Is your EMS not for sale? I thought I saw that it was.
I am a vocoder nut, but I like
them more than I use
them. I had an SVC-350 for 20 years, and I found that I wanted something more than it so I sold it. Of course, not having one means that every rare instance where you think "a vocoder might be nice here" you kick yourself for not having it, whereas if you DID have it, you'd probably never think to use it.
So, I am looking for a vocoder that will at least keep me from kicking myself every time I have the urge to vocode.
I keep telling myself the Electrix is the way to go because they are plentiful and inexpensive, but I am irrationally put off by the digital technology of it. I wonder if perhaps I would enjoy using the Paia more even if it is limited because of the goofy pleasure I get from using things buzzing with electricity instead of data.
Hell, I don't knowwwwwww.
There are no Paias to be found, and I am not about to attempt to buy the kit, so I may just have to go with Electrix.
Thanks for your input, Minime.
