Talkbox and Yamaha DX100

Hey this is my first time posting on this site and i've noticed that there's a lot of people that know their stuff on here so i hope someone out there can help me out. I'm trying to get that Roger Troutman sound with a Yamaha DX100 and Banshee Talkbox. ive tried editing the FM sawtooth voice on the DX and it sounds ok but it just doesn't sound good enough when i compare it to the sound Roger had or the sound Dj Quik, Battlecat, Bosko etc. have. I have a chance to possibly do some talkbox work here in the near future but i want to get the best possible sound. if anyone knows the parameters for this sound i would appreciate the help. thanks

i use the larisyn preset or a brass preset. but its not only the dx 100 sound, its also the player that makes the 'roger'sound. ya gotta pronounce the s, v,t etc. adding a guitar distortion can also make the sound a little clearer.

Hey B.A.

Like Rotterdam said. It's not only the DX-100 and Heil or Bandshee, it's the performer. It took me a long time time get a good sound doing it.
Roger used the Hard Brass from the DX-100 and make sure you put it in Mono for lead lines.
Also when you do backgrounds, you have to do them like a singer and do about 8 to 16 parts. That's what Roger did as well. It's really a lot of work to get it right. It took me around three years to get it down. A great mic helps as well. I use a U87 Neumann.
He use to use a Shure 57 among other mics.
The best bet though is to make one or have one made. Same as Roger, And Teddy Riley whom is the new king at it.

Hope this helped....Check out the website. I think I still have a song that I did Talkbox on. I did that about 2 1/2 years ago.

thanks for all the good info. i did switch the sound i was using to a brass and to me it does sound better, so thanks for that. as far as my pronounciation goes, its pretty good, you can clearly tell what im saying (as clear as you can get on a talk box anyway) but yeah i feel ya, to even get close to touching Rogers sound is gonna take some work. And M2E, i'll check your track out later, im at work right now . thanks again, peace...

Oh Yeah...The Great Talkbox! Roger is a Big Inspiration for me! It just takes Dedication and Practice to get good on the Talkbox. Experiment wit diffrent sounds. The Dx-100 is good for the talkbox, but theres others that will do the Job. Its all how you tweak the sound and the talkbox itself.. Oh yes, and you got to know how to play a little keys.

Heres Me and My Boxx...
