They're different. One is not undeniably better in all respects than  
the other.

I have a Doepfer vocoder, and I'm _highly_ conscious of studio space.  
Sometimes I'll set up dynamic resonances of instruments I want to  
emulate. Sometimes I'll fire off the band pass filters with an army  
of software envelopes. Sometimes I'll use the slew limiters as CV  
processors outside the realm of vocoding. Sometimes it is nice to  
have a set of narrow band pass filters. It is just part of the  
overall modular. I personally find it worth the additional frame  
space. YMMV.
