The Roland VP-330 is a ten band vocoder and string machine manufactured by Roland Corporation from 1979 to 1980. It can also play four different choir sounds, each of which uses four bandpass filters, shared from the same pool of seven total. Like Roland's other strings machines of the era, it features a BBD-based ensemble effect. Although it was not especially popular when it was released, it has since gained a more favorable reputation. Forty years later, Behringer cloned it with their VC-340. Roland themselves made a digital recreation, the VP-03.
