DTOX explains the presets in the Retox pack:

Building

Classic vocoder first half that has a trance, gate-like distortion on the second half.

Building Vox

I built this with the intent that you could use the original voice and also automate the voice down on a build, as I have the M4 modulator doing a 4-Bar build based on the M1 modulator’s rate being modulated by M4. So, if you turn the voice down all the way you get a cray EDM type build, and if you keep the voice in you get a build behind the voice that complements the other.

Clean Formant

Liquid/pulsing vocoder with a dramatic formant change as you play it.

Daft Rising

Arpeggiated harmonic rhythms with a distinct vocal that will add flare to any track.

Diamond Cutter

Complete disruption of your sound; turn any vocal or instrument into a cutting lead melody.

Essence

Levitating sound: when the amplitude dips down, the mix on delay, reverb and distortion are brought up. Great for call & response vocals or phrases that have less words.

Eyes

Vibrating vocal sound that has a ring modulator type feel; when amplitude is dipped, the reverb mix is brought up by 50%. Great for call & response vocals or phrases that have less words.

Formant

Front and center vocal with a flanging formant. The delay mixed is modulated by the overall amplitude of the signal. When released, the mix is increased. Great for call & response vocals or phrase that are gaped out and have less words.

Formant Response

Very pretty and wide clean vocoder with a modulating formant on OVox 2. The delay mixed is modulated by the overall amplitude of the signal. When released, the mix is increased.

Formant Shimmer

Shimmering vocal sound with a bouncing vowel formant.

Formant Vibes

Evolving formant that flanges at the same time, really nice for pad vocals.

Full Tilt

Fluttering vocal sound also great for pads.

Gallop

Just like the name says, a galloping pulse rhythm that blends with the natural incoming voice tuned (by MIDI input) along with the affected OVox signal.

Ghost

Tremolo vocoder sound with a touch of noise whispering in the background.

Grind

Wide sound with a hollow grinding texture that is great for pads.

Guitar Strum

Wide vocals with a rhythmic pattern that fits right in the pocket.

Hollow

Wide vocoder sound with a pulsing rhythm. The cool thing about this preset is its effects. The reverb and delay mixes are modulated by the amplitude of OVox's signal like a few other presets. What makes this one different is that the time and feedback are also modulated by the amplitude so when the amplitude dips, both the time and feedback modulate, giving this very odd de-tuned sound. Try call and response vocals or single shouts, it's a wicked sound.

Leslie

Guttural and wide sound that fits in any mix, use it on pads or long droning vocals.

Liquid Vox

Simple classic vocoder with a liquid twist, play the X-Y on OVOX 2 to hear drastic changes.

Organized Randomness

Random panning with lots of modulation that gives you a nice stereo vibe in your mix, can be used for both topline vocals and pads, great rhythm piece.

Pretty Pan

Dizzying sixteenth note pan with the harmonics from OVox 1 being modulated at the same rate but in polar-opposite direction. Creates a harmonic-only type of progression.

Underwater

Bubbling vocoder that sounds like it’s being played underwater, but still clear and recognizable.

Vocal Cutter

Classic vocoder sound with a cutting second half.

Wah Why

Classic Wah Wah sound that ramps up and down in rate over 8 bars.

Wurli

Nice clean tremolo / auto-panning vocoder.
