I just love the sound of the VP-330 vocoder per se, sometimes the less 
controls the better...if you get me..I wouldn't want to adjust it...Not to 
pick, but the RS-505 strings sound nothing like a VP-330 they have very 
different circuits, different ensemble etc....it's one of those internet 
myths you read...And I really do own both of them..and if it really were 
true I might not have to own both :)
