- original US advertising, 1978

"The Korg VC-10 makes any electronic sound source (musical instruments, tape recorders, etc.) appear to talk. The VC-10 'encodes' your speech signal (singing or just talking) and controls the tones of the musical source, so they become 'words within music.'

Vocoder effects can be very spacey. And so can their prices. But Korg's new VC-10 puts 'vocoding' within the reach of all musicians. Hear the VC-10 at your nearest Korg dealer. And the next time you're recording or performing, 'say it with music.'  Literally."
