I don't know if you guys can help me much hear, but I've been looking for an alesis audio forum and this seems like a nice community!
Anyways, my problem is this: I recently got a theremin (super cool) and I'm trying to run it through the vocoder.
I've got it set up to use the FX1 40-band vocoder, but I can not find any effects that will change the tone it makes. Just the lonely theremin noise.
I've got it on double audio in stereo, and I have changed every setting imaginable. I just want to change the tone it makes. Is it possible to make it sound more 'buzzy'? Modulate the sound?
All I have found is that if I turn up the resonance on the filters I can find points that will cause a lot of feedback on the theremin but in no other way is the sound changed

Also what I was wondering about is how I can increase the qwuality of my recordings.
I have a really shetto set up where I have a 1/4'' to 3.5mm adapter and then a male-to-male plug runs it into the microphone jack of my computer whereupon I pick it up with audacity.
The quality is terrible! I like lo-fi but it doesn't even like get the point across. Any advice?
