The tease is over! Finally, Behringer gives us some images of the finished Roland VP-330 clone that they are calling the Vocoder VC340.

It very closely resembles the Roland Vocoder Plus, to the point of being completely identical. Let’s look at the two side-by-side.

There is currently no other information but we have to assume that it’s going to follow the functionality of the Roland. Behringer also highlights on the Facebook post that it’s also a “string ensemble”.

Of all the vintage synths Behringer could choose to cover this one, for me at least, is the oddest. As I commented in my article about the teasing I’m not sure how many of us need vocoders in our lives. But there you are. Do check out the SOS article below as it gives all the reasons why this is not just about robot voices for disco records. The VC340 looks perfect, because it looks exactly like the VP-330, and who doesn’t want a cool piece of retro gear cluttering up their studio?
