1420 Scat-Talker MU

Voltage controlled human speech phoneme generator

Select one of the 63 built-in phonemes with a control voltage (CV) or panel control aided by the convenient high contrast LCD display, press the button and have some fun by setting the pitch from normal to growls, thru duck like gibberish. Trigger the phonemes with a sample & hold or sequencer, or connect to a DAW with a MIDI to CV converter for speech like sequences.

Scat-Talker has a roughly exponential CV response, but don’t expect perfect tracking or stability. A second attenuated CV input is convenient for adding vibratos and other pitch variations. The ACTIVE output goes to logic high for the duration of the chip’s built-in phoneme length, and the output will conveniently continue to sound.

The Scat-Talker can be made to ‘speak’ by sequencing its phonemes in specific orders, but be warned that the process is quite time consuming. If that is your goal we have some helpful publications on our website, but perhaps the real joy is to use the Scat-Talker’s speech sounds as a new tool in your arsenal of musical sound sources. Imagine – “Gibberish in C Minor”.
