There are lots of software ones. Some are free, some are cheap.

Hardware wise, as suggested already you can check out Boss SE series processors. I'm not sure about an SE-50 but the SE-70 had a great sounding Vocoder. A couple of different types if I recall correctly.

You stil need a synth with those. Because in essence they let you vocode one input against another.

If you can afford something a little more up to date check out the Korg Microkorg. Basically a VA synth with built in Vocoder and a mic. You can do stuff like freeze the sound's formant and split the bands over the stereo field.
But if all you need is stuff like robot voices or cascade type sounds an SE-70 will do.

I have a Korg DVP-1 that I purchased years ago and it has hardly been used. I would be willing to sell at a very reasonable price. If interested make me an offer -

The Korg microKorg also provides a low cost vocoder plus you get a virtual analog synth as well. That makes it very good value. That would be my choice anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions Nigel. Microkorg is an awesome minisynth. But, I already have 2 keyboards that I use on the stage. Setting up another keyboard in the upper tier will add another time to set up. Plus, it doesn't look good on the stage if you are singing or performing behind those too many equipments. I am trying to minimize my setup to 1 keyboard as much as posible. This will be in the live situation.
