The voltage for this item is 100V. If you use this item in countries where the voltage is more than 100V such as 200 – 240V, the item will be broken unless you use a proper transformer.” Link

“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.” Link

“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.” Link

Korg, VC-10, Vocoder @ 06 May 2017, Comments Off on Korg VC-10 Vocoder

“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.” Link

Korg, VC-10, Vocoder @ 28 January 2017, Comments Off on Korg VC-10 Vocoder

10 ” 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 [5] 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

korg vc10
Lovely Korg VC-10 vocoder on offer. These are a clever compact vocoding package, has a built in paraphonic synth voice so you need nothing more than a mic to make it work.

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 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

vc=1- “For sale is a old vintage KORG VC-10 analog vocoder. Bought it from its original owner who took it on tour and put it into storage for more than 10 years.

Bads: Missing the original microphone cap. The original mic is here but untested. It needs soldering work. Both external Mic and Input work, but the signals seem to be a little weak (not sure if it is normal since it works).

Goods: All knobs, keys, wheel and UV meter are complete and in working order.” Link

“Great physical condition.
I do not have the original gooseneck microphone. Nor have I ever used one with this vocoder, as it requires a non-standard connector.

The other 1/4″ microphone input works perfectly. All other functions / keys / knobs work perfectly.

Will be well packaged and insured for safe shipping.” Link

” Biete hier ein Korg VC-10 Vocoder an. (Synthesizer)
Ein sehr schönes Gerät noch von meinen Opa der sich damit beschäftigt hat.
Es muss aus den 70er sein, sieht aber dafür noch sehr erhalten aus.
Das gerät habe ich prüfen lassen und alles ist voll funktionsfähig.
Geringe Spuren sind auf der Oberfläche zu sehen aber das ist denke ich normal.
Die Knöpfe und Tasten lassen sich sehr flüssig bewegen.
Keine Brüche, Dellen oder sonstige solche Defekte.
Leider ist das Mikrofon nicht mehr vorhanden.
Die Geschichte von dieses Gerät ist, wie ich im Netz nachlesen konnte, sehr interessant.
Viele bekannte Künstler haben dieses Gerät benutzt.
Das spricht für Qualität” Link

“Since 2004, photographicdecor is proud to offer you some amazing fine art photographs, art, music instruments and jewerly.
You are bidding on a rare vintage KORG VC-10 Vocoder from 1979. I bought this Korg in 1979 in Shibuya Tokyo and did used it at home only since I am not a musician, but just love to play for fun. It has been in storage for years since my work got all my time. It’s still in its original KORG carrying bag. I power it up yesterday and did a quick test using a CD has an output since I didn’t had a microphone. Everything did work well and it sounded good. All the keyboard keys are present and very responsive, but one key had a crack that was repaired. The body is clean with no ding or crack, but the paint has little rust spots due to the age. It’s still has the stickers from the 80’s on it. The original carrying bag is in great shape with no tear and the inside is also very clean. Does not include the original VC-10 microphone. The KORG Vocoder will pack very carefully to avoid any damage during shipping. We send overseas, but we are not responsible for import taxes. ” Link

“This is a rare, vintage classic Korg VC-10 Vocoder, from the late 70s or early 80s…….as used by Emerson Lake & Palmer, ELO and many more!

I bought it years ago on a whim & never got round to actually trying to work out how to use it! It’s just been gathering dust ever since so it’s time to let it go to somebody who can get the most out of it.

It doesn’t have the MC-01 microphone with it but it does have the socket for one on the top.” Link

I have had this on a shelf in my studio on display for a few years. Before that it was in the original box ( not included) works great and looks fantastic. This is as close to new as i have seen without finding a sealed box. It sounds great and makes me smile when ever i hear it. Very organic and multidimensional.” Link
