You mention "MIDI control of pitch" - What pitch?

A vocoder's input is a pair of audio signals. It then analyzes one signal
to excite (open) the filters which control the amount of the other signal
that's let through. *Some* vocoders *do* have a built-in signal source for
one of the signals; is this what you're used to seeing?

Are you really thinking more along the lines of a harmonizer or harmony
generator like the Digitech Vocalist series?
