So, I would say yes, they're related. Weakly. As Sampo says, the method is essentially a grain-wise Fourier reconstruction. Upshot is it sounds like a vocoder because it is the voice 'vocoded' with a pulse stream at near to the original fundamental (but corrected). Additionally two other things enhance the psychoacoustic impression that it's a classic vocoder. First is the pitch quantisation, so when you glissando there's a stepped effect that makes the banding stand out more. And second, as Ben says, some mixing of the dry and wet usually produces a chorus/flanger effect on top. Disclaimer: I have never seen the Antares source code so could be guessing very wrongly, but that's what my ears think. best, Andy
