“Unit shows some signs of wear, but has been tested and most things seem to be in proper working order. The only real issue I encountered is that the Vibrato does not seem to be functioning. I personally could not hear any difference in messing with the Speed and Depth knobs. The microphone shows some wear/rust and isn’t particularly snappy, wherever you adjust it it may dip just a tad. EXT. SIGNAL INPUT and EXT PITCH CONRTROL were not tested.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“You are bidding on a vintage Korg VC10 in moderately fair condition. I found this in a pawn shop basement. The bottom of the synthesizer has rust. I just had to buy it! Alas! My studio is overfull and my wife is angry! My loss is your gain.
I replaced some components on this machine to make it work. I tested it and everything works. It sounds lo-fi and angry, gritty and powerful. The ensemble effect works well. I love it! It sounds like analogue happiness.
It passes audio and does what it is supposed. It may need tuning and possibly a bias adjust. Keep this, the age, and the nature of the beast in mind when bidding.
Condition is Used. I will guarantee that it will arrive in the pictured condition. Other than that, and as with all vintage gear, no warranty is expressed or implied due to age.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” Have to reluctantly let this beauty go as i haveent budgeted for the holidays as well as i needed to, so here is an extremely rare and beautiful korg vc-10 you have the opportunity to have in your collection. The first thing I would like to note is it has the original microphone that came with the unit stock. This is a piece that is commonly lost over the years and has a special connector so no other goose neck style mic will fit in the jack on the top. IOt is similar to xlr but slightly bigger in all dimensions. Another mic can be used in the “mic input” jack if needed but I have always been completely satisfied with the stock one. This vocoder is a 20 band vocoder so it has 20 individual vioces that can be played at one time. that’s twice as many fingers as one has to use so you cam get very creative.
The ts and trs jacks are as follows, Mic input,final out,phones,ext signal input (Which is very cool as you can plug another synth in and use it’s tone for the vocoder. And last input is “ext pitch control which can be used to control pitch with another device. Then Knobs are as follows from left to right. Tune, Octave (which is a 2 mode switch regular and “up”. Up will make the processed channel of then voice an octave higher. then bottom right is accent bend. Next roe has “input signal balance” and below that are 2 knobs in a row to control vibrato speed and depth. Next column in two switches meter select where you can use the UV meter which is so cool that this unit has a uv meter. The switch below is ensemble “on and off”. Next knob opver is mic level which is a pre amp to the mic. below that is ext pitch control where another keyboard can be used to operate the vocoder. The final row has three knobs”power/final voliume which is pretty self explanatory. Below that is a knob which controls balance between simulator and mic and simulator. This is a “wet to dry control” Last of all is phones level,. Which is pretty self explanatory
The keyboard is a 2.5 octave control and also has a pitch bend on the left side. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is a Korg Vc 10 Vc10 Analog Vocoder With Microphone. This item is tested/ working. The microphone that is included in this auction is not the original microphone, but it works great. As far as issues go, The left part of the plastic siding is chipped, and some of the screws are missing on the right portion of the plastic siding. When you pick up the vocoder it sounds like something is loose inside of it, but it does not affect the functionality. I hate to see this guy go but financial circumstances are forcing me to sell it. I will ship this item via Fedex and they will pack it/ ship it. No international bidders, Paypal only, and no returns.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I have a rare vintage Korg VC10 that was played by The Tubes! I purchased it 5 years ago from their keyboard player on Craigslist and haven’t used it. Hoping it can go to an analog collector that will restore it!
I plugged it in when I first got it and it worked fine apart from scratchy pots and a dead key. I listed it as is because I have sold all of my equipment and was not able to test it since then. That being said it had just been in my gear closet the entire time. VU powers up fine (as pictured) and responds to the keys being played. I wish I had time to restore it because these are great but I have to let it go because I am moving and not taking anything with me.
Note there are little rust spots all the way around and one of the side panels has a crack.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“This auction is for a Vintage Korg VC-10, this model launched in1978, and was groundbreaking in that it was a self contained unit. Other vocoder a of the time might cost $10,000 still need an external synth and external mic. These units do not show up for sale too often. This unit serial number is 162712. It cosmeticly looks in very good condition for its age, scratches with light surface rust on the bottom. This unit functioned for me as expected a year ago- a year ago it worked fine—
BUT TODAY THIS UNIT DOES NOT TURN ON. Please understand this unit worked 1 and 2 years ago but IS NOT CURRENTLY FUNCTIONING. This vocoder defiantly needs some servicing, it has attached power cable, and is SOLD AS IS, no returns accepted.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“You are bidding on original vintage KORG VS-10 vocoder, unit is in very good shape and works great, couple pots are a little bits scratchy, but it’s normal for 40 years old keyboard.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“As with any bit of 40 year old kit I cannot make any guarantee suffice to say that all of the knobs are working and effect the sound .I have never heard another one of these so I have nothing to point of reference. From what I can tell it sounds as fantastic as the other VC-10 demos on youtube etc. NB Very minor chip on one key – see photo. VU meter moves in one mode but not in another – so it is work but perhaps sticking in one mode. I asked tech to check it and he said it was sticking but he didn’t change it. 40 years old – a variety of cosmetic marks – but very tidy condition overall.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” 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). ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
