This unique product features IVL Technology's Advanced Vocal Synthesis which came about through research into physical model- ing of the human voice. A radical new break-through in digital signal processing, the Talker actually allows an instrument and a voice to be combined to create expressive effects.
The Talker also boasts an actual hard-wired bypass for the instrument and mic inputs to maintain a perfectly clean instrument signal when the effect is not in use. The Talker has a retro-space-age look and is housed in a heavy duty stainless steel chassis that is both functional and attractive.
