Default "Talking" Guitar effect.....????

Hi

I've been listening to an old 33 1/3 from the 60's called Switched-On-Country by Rick Powell and I want to reproduce the sounds he made using the Moog synth.
I've got close using the MinimogueVA VST to make the long sustained guitar sound, but need some help to make it "Talk" How do I modulate the guitar sound with my voice?. I used a mic. on line-in and can record my voice OK, but don't know how to modulate the guitar sound from the VST.

any help is appreciated, as I'm having a lot of fun with these VST's. It's alot of fun to use midi (soundfonts), and VST's together and experiment with the endless combinations....good for spending long winter nights INSIDE !!!

thanks, Terry B.

The new way would be to use a vocoder plugin and make it modulate the main sound from your voice.

The old way was likely running the signal to an amplifier powering a PA voice coil hooked up to a plastic tube which you tape to the side of your mike and then stick in your mouth; you talk while you play and the mic pics up your mouth shaping the signal: instant talking instrument.

PS: these things aren't hard to build but a word of advice: if you do build one, build it with a "saliva trap" Or make sure the tube points downwards at the mic end...

thanks......this sounds kind of "messy" to me....I'd like to use VST plugins to do it.....more germ free I would think. I'll see if I can find a vocal VST that will suit my purpose

In that case, you need a vocoder. There are a few vst vocoders around.

In that plugin pack, there are a couple of plugins - a talkbox, and a vocoder, both are very good. (And free)

You could try recording your voice then using that wave in Reaverb to modulate the guitar track.
