it sounds cleaner than the old vintage one's and
in my opinion this is an advantage. compared to
a roland or electro-harmonix vocoder, the doepfer
can be used for a much wider range of sounds.

some modules, that provide vocoder functions for the complete modular
system. If you include other modules (e.g. Highpassfilter for better
unvoiced signal handling; Mixers, ExtInput, VCA, Inverter for
compression;...) and if you include the knowhow how to use them for
vocoder orientated usage, you will get a vocoder which is beating the
most of the vintage vocoders. If you only look at the 129x modules, some
vintage devices may look better.
