Default vocoding

what type of sound do you guys use as the carrier on your vocoders? i've experimented a bit with a farfisa, and a cool techno pad i found, but i cant get that evil robot sound that i'm looking for. any thoughts?

Vocoding takes the formants of your voice and applies it to another sound, so if you want a really snarly evil sound, i'd suggest starting off with a harsh saw wave patch. Of course, i've never actually done any vocoding, but that's what i'd start with - let me know how it turns out.

Yeah, a buzzy saw wave patch with a good bit of filter resonance would probably be a good place to start.
