One brand new iOS app promises to add a real time channel vocoder to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Called voice bot, the application uses an iDevice's microphone to modulate its user's voice, resulting in a robot-like, retro sound. Developer Erik Sigth explains in the app's release notes:
Voice bot is a real time channel vocoder. Using the microphone, your voice modulates the synth resulting in a robot like singing voice. The synth engine, also known as the carrier, comes with the oscillator shapes saw, square, pulse and noise and a pitch lfo. For the modulation part of the engine there is [sic] amplification settings for eight frequency bands, frame smudge and sample rate, delay and flanger.In addition, voice bot also includes a minimalistic sampler, and comes with support for midi keys and Audiobus. Here's a complete list of features available to access in the application:
