” For sale is Roland VP330 Vocoder-Plus vintage synthesizer. This is a rare synth that sounds absolutely amazing. Super classic haunting string / pad tone, and when you combine the smooth warm vocoder sound with the human voice / string section it can get a huge epic sound, especially great for soundtrack / film work. Gives you that instant Vangelis / Tangerine Dream / Kitaro / Pink Floyd feeling. This particular unit is in nice shape but it does show some wear as expected for such an old synth. Be sure to check out the pictures to make sure you like it. Functionally it does need some minor touch-ups, particularly the sliders are slightly bent (but still functional), there is wear on the power cord at its base (also still functional as is) and some scratchy sliders/pots, particularly a couple sliders that cut audio in/out and crackle when moved, but are fine when sitting. These are all minor complaints. Otherwise all the features work as they should and you can still get awesome classic sound without needing any actual servicing. I’ve set the price lower accordingly, these typically sell for $3500 – $5000 when you can even find one for sale. It’s a Mk1 version (has rocker switches) which people who’ve used both say has a better sound (more lush) than the Mk2 due to the special ensemble chips used which the MK2 doesn’t have. Don’t miss out on this classic synth!” Link
With the microphone
Two keys have chips
Two keys have some light markings
I would of swapped the keys but wanted to keep 100% original
An audio legend
Like with any of the vintage gear I recommend using a device/preamp/Di to flip the ground or to use an isolator to wipe out any potential noise.” Link
” Thank you for visiting my listing. Here we have a vintage Korg VC-10 vocoder synth. As you can see in the pictures, they have spelled “RESPONCE” instead of “RESPONSE.” I have been looking for information about this error, and can only confirm that it happened. According to Wikipedia, “It has been noted on Korg Kornucopia mailing lists  that early versions of the VC-10 have a misprint on the front panel block diagram, which spells “FREQUENCY RESPONCE SIMULATOR” rather than the correct “FREQUENCY RESPONSE SIMULATOR”.”
I do not see other listings with the error currently, or in recent sales. The serial number is, as expected based on above, lower than typically seen, at #1600**.
Cosmetically, it’s in great shape approaching 40. There are some small scratches on the back of the unit (pic 9), and on the front under the keys (pic 10). There is some light swirling which appears to be from previous cleanings, which is completely surface as far as I can tell (pic 11). There is some rust on some of the screws. There is minimal pitting on the mic input hardware (pic 8), and a rust spot on the microphone neck (pic 3, about 60% from top). ” Link
“This listing is for an excellent condition Roland Vocoder VP-330.
This unit is the older and more sought after version featuring the old school roland rocker switches instead of the later 808/jupiter style buttons.
This unit also features the older compression style that is preferred over the later style.
This unit has been serviced, calibrated, tuned, and all stability components have been changed or upgraded, such as capacitors and certain IC’s.
The unit features a light amount of wear. There is a small amount of duct tape residue that is minor. There are some average small scuffs throughout but nothing to write home about. See photos
The unit is currently as pictured missing two slider caps. We are currently sourcing them and will include them with the unit, or shipped to you free of charge. ” Link
one of the best vocoders ever made, just few left in this great condition.
has just been professional serviced, works great !!” Link

“It’s in good shape but has some signs of use. All the turn knobs turn properly and smooth and aren’t sloppy. The push buttons push in fine and the ones that light up light up when pushed in. The Led screen show the numbers and works fine. The face of it is pretty clean, only a few scratches and the body of it isn’t all dinged up or scratched up. Please view my pictures.” Link
“Rare Vintage Analog Synthesizer in good working condition. The high EQ band is making noise possibly due to a bad capacitor. It is missing a level knob and does not have rack ears. This unit has been in climate controlled storage since the 90′s, it was a part of an effects rack used by a notable performer.” Link

“For sale is a rare vintage Roland SVC-350 vocoder. It’s fully functional and in excellent condition. A few minor scruffs but one of the nicer ones I’ve seen in a while. It has all the white slider caps, runs at 110v USA voltage and includes the rare footswitch. The SVC350 is similar to vocoder section in the VP330, but in a smaller rack form. Yet unlike the VP330, the SVC350 has graphic EQ section that allows you to shape the tone with more control than a VP330 does. This is a classic sounding vocoder, really awesome with vocals and synthesizers but especially cool when paired with drum machines, guitars and effects. ” Link
There are several websites to find out more about the specifics of this unit so just a few bullet points
The Roland SVC-350 is a 2U rackmount Vocoder designed to accept external inputs
11 band graphic equalizer selects which frequencies to process or reject
All inputs and outputs including the 1/4″ Instrument and XLR Microphone inputs are on the front panel
The SVC-350 is the rackmount version of Roland’s revered VP-330
This unit was given a 100% working approval by technicians to Perfect Circuit Audio in Burbank, CA, a leading synthesizer dealer on the west coast. Included in the photo section is a copy of the Perfect Circuit invoice showing the machine is in perfect working order.” Link
One thing to mention which makes this item a big big plus! I had the inputs and outputs split and sent to the rear so there’s no cable mess coming out of the front. Set this up with your patch bay and keep the front of your rack clean of cables! And if you are for some reason insistent on using the ins/outs on the front panel you still can. Huge advantage. ” Link
This is amazing sounding vintage Vocoder up there with the best ever made. If you are looking for the authentic vocoder sound then you are in the right place.
This has sat unused now for a number of years as I am entirely computer based now when making music.
I bought the unit about ten years ago and was used for a few projects. (performed amazingly of course) The sound from this thing is warm and beautifully analogue.
It has had little use since then and has been stored away. I have decided to sell because I am unlikely to use again and am having a clear out to raise funds.
The unit was working perfectly last time I used it, but I have not been able to test the unit properly as I do not have the equipment these days.” Link
“BEST VOCODER EVER. ONE PROBLEM, THE CHORUS CHIP FOR THE STRING SECTION WORKS BUT CRACKLES – A TYPICAL PROBLEM FOR THE ROLAND CHORUS CHIPS OF THE TIME AND A VERY EASY FIX IF YOU NEED CHORUS ON YOUR STRINGS. VOCODER SOUNDS PERFECT AS DOES THE REST OF THE INSTRUMENT! SLIGHT COSMETIC WEAR ON LEFT SIDE PANEL AS SHOWN, OTHERWISE SHES BEAUTIFUL AND IN GREAT SHAPE. PURCHASED ONE YEAR AGO FROM MAIN DRAG MUSIC AND FULLY SERVICED THEN. 100V power.” Link
“Angeboten wird ein Vocoder der Firma Korg. Den Zustand des Gerätes möchte ich als sehr sehr gut bezeichnen (hat nie einen Keller gesehen).” Link
” Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus string ensemble/voice/vocoder keyboard from late 1970′s, in very good original condition. All functions work and all keys work, sliders and pots and switches all work with very little or no noise. The faux wood is all in very good to excellent condition except for the ding shown in the picture on the upper left end block, the graphics and panel paint are excellent and unworn/unscratched. This VP-330 was used in early Dynamix II tracks before I got it, I have had it for 15 or 20 years.
Although the VP-330 is in great shape for a keyboard that is nearly 40 years old, it is being sold as-is. If you do not fully understand what you are bidding on, please Google it to find out – after all, this is an all-analog pre-MIDI keyboard with none of the bells and whistles of modern synths.” Link
“I purchased this from a major studio in LA and I’ve owned it for many years, but I can’t say that I’ve used it that much. Prior to listing, I went through most of it’s functions without noticing any flaws. I selected patches and used the vocoder, pitch shifter, harmonizer, internal wave, chorus, unison; and everything seemed to work great. Vocoder sounds amazing and is worth it for that alone in my opinion.” Link
“Here is another Korg product we have for sale here on eBay. This Buy it Now auction is for a VINTAGE KORG DVP-1. This unit is in excellent condition with some minor wear and has been tested as follows: I powered it up, plugged in a microphone and headphones and tested the Harmonizer and Pitch Shift which both worked. The Chorus and Unison buttons also changed the sound. I then plugged in a keyboard with a midi cable and tested both the Vocoder and Int Wave which both worked. The midi indicator on the front panel lit up when the keys were played on the external keyboard. The level, direct level and effect level knobs all were tested and work as well as the value editor. The program and parameter buttons changed the display accordingly when appropriate values were entered. The only thing I did not check was the programmer write and store functions because I did not know how. ” Link
Cosmetics: Great condition, may show normal wear, scratches
Operational condition: tested all works great, easy to use.” Link
“Highly sought after vintage Roland SV-350 Vocoder in excellent condition. One owner (me). Includes original owner’s manual (writing on front but clean and intact otherwise) and Service Notes (= service manual including complete schematics – a bit of soiling on front page but otherwise clean and intact). Has regular U.S. A/C power cord/plug. 2 rack space. Has several superficial scratches on top and one more visible inch and a half scratch on one side. Front looks clean except for wear around rack screw holes. As it always has for me, it’s working great.” Link
very nice korg vocoder sounds totally vintage and is becoming increasingly rare
many vocals presets aswell similar to roland vp330
the harmoniser sounds great and you can do anything form tiny mouse voices to deep monsters
perfect for studio rack film and radio
the dvp1 is in very good condition with only the usual tiny marks nothing serious at all
everything is working perfectly no issues” Link
Has some interesting features, notably you can add pitch modulations according to the attack of the input, a simple feature that gets really funky results. Vocoding with the built in tone generator is the
standard sound of the VC 10 but you can open it up alot by running an external carrier input.. anything with rich harmonics like a prophet or juno saw waves, a string machine ect, then overdrive the input just
a bit and you can get a really rich classic vocoding sound.
this unit plays great, works great, no issues!” Link
“It’s in excellent condition and sounds fantastic. The ensemble switch is a little finicky where sometimes (not always) you have to switch it up and down to change from ensemble to non ensemble.” Link
It is in working condition. Sometimes the microphone needs to be adjusted to work. Maybe a simple fix.
I´m including the hard-case. It is made with heavy wood that is why the shipping price is a bit over the usual price.” Link
“The Korg DVP-1 is a great and classic early 80s Vocoder / Vocal Processor with Vocoder, Internal Wave, Harmonize and Pitch Shift Modes. It includes 5 Voices for the harmonizer (4 with chorus), internal synth for the vocoder, Unison mode, and 64 patches of memory. This unit is in great condition and is 100% functional.” Link
“Der Roland Vocoder SVC-350 ist eine Referenz. Sehr gute Sprachverständlichkeit, aber mit dem Chorus kann er auch sehr fett und weich klingen. Sehr guter technischer und optischer Zustand.” Link

“Works great. Couple of scuffs” Link
Ich habe das Gerät ca. 1995 gekauft und seitdem sehr selten benutzt, obwohl es klanglich sehr viel Freude macht. Im Zuge einer Ausmist-Aktion verkaufe ich es nun, schweren Herzens (und je mehr ich darüber schreibe, desto schwerer wird es…).
Das Gerät ist in hervorragendem Zustand, sehr sauber, mit kratzfreier Front, Rack-Mounts inkl. Griffen mit sehr geringen Abnutzungserscheinungen (eine Seltenheit, siehe abgeschlossene SVC-Auktionen!), und nur wenigen Kratzern auf der Ober- und Unterseite – siehe Fotos. Es funktioniert hervorragend. Die weissen Kappen auf den Voice-Character-Control-Schiebereglern habe ich kurz vor Auktionsbeginn durch Originalteile von Roland ersetzt, weil ihre Vorgänger mit den Jahren Risse bekommen hatten. Das Netzkabel ist fest eingebaut, siehe Fotos, und das Gerät ist für 220V ausgelegt – wichtig für Käufer aus dem Ausland. Die Spannungs-Auslegung kann möglicherweise intern umgestellt werden, ich bin aber nicht sicher.
Mitgeliefert werden neben einer Kopie der deutschen Anleitung (bezogen bei Roland Deutschland) auch die englische Original-Anleitung, an der sich leider ein paar Kinder (des Vorbesitzers) mit Filzstiften vergangen haben. Vielleicht kennt jemand einen Trick, wie man die Spuren beseitigen kann – mir ist es mit Isopropanol nicht gelungen. Die englische Anleitung kann ich als Ausdruck aus dem Internet gerne auf Anfrage dazu legen, ebenso das Service-Manual.” Link
” For sale is a Roland Vocoder SVC-350. The unit receives and passes a signal, however does not process the altered signal correctly. I believe this to be a simple solder fix that is probably due to a broken transistor or resistor but do not have the time or finances to currently fix it. I would hate to let it go and would love to fix it but there is a baby on the way. Due to its age and issue it is being sold AS IS. ” Link
