Mezidal Some methods of control are more reliable than others: Harmonies still need to be mixed behind the untreated vocal sound to be completely convincing. The musically aware amongst you will notice that the interval the Vocalist produces actually changes from a major third four semitones to a minor third three semitones as you go up.

Shares Our Verdict This type of thing could get very complicated but DigiTech has made it as simple as possible, which is the real selling point here. If you play rhythm guitar and sing, make a beeline for Vocalist Live 2. Pros No programming needed. Easy to use. Small but effective range of harmonies. Cons Studio and room reverb is too similar. This is a voice processor, the main function of which is to add two-part harmonies to a vocal part.
Something like that would confound a conventional harmoniser. By contrast the Vocalist Live 2 harmoniser will follow the guitar chords. But, if you then play an A major, it will shift to the C. DigiTech says that the musIQ detection section can analyse complex guitar waveforms and determine which notes in each chord are critical to accurate harmony.
The Vocalist Live 2 is powered by a 9V adaptor and is designed as a floor pedal that comes first in the signal chain after the guitar because it needs a pure guitar signal to function correctly. The guitar input and output are hard-wired so that there is no degradation of the guitar signal as it passes through.
The vocal is fed into the unit directly from a microphone into an XLR input or through a line input which can take the signal from a mixer or an audio interface, allowing previously recorded vocals to be used.
There are both mono XLR and stereo 6. Besides the harmony generation the unit has other processing, controlled by three more front panel knobs, that can be applied to the vocal. Firstly, compression can be applied to smooth out the vocal signal, then a touch of reverb can be added with a choice of studio, room or hall sounds.
Two footswitches turn the whole thing on and off. The harmony footswitch switches the harmony generation in and out while the effects switch is used to bypass the rest of the effects processing - this can also be held down to engage the onboard chromatic guitar tuner.
The unit will be confused as to what harmonies to generate when confronted with an out-of-tune guitar so this facility is crucial. Sounds Setting up the Live 2 is simple - the front panel knobs and buttons are appropriately named and very intuitive, while the red LEDs on each button let you know exactly what effect is active.
The smooth-sounding reverbs have been picked to suit vocals and can add a definite sense of space around the voice, if needed, or at higher knob settings be switched in with the footswitch as a special effect. The harmoniser itself works just fine, adding in some extra sympathetic voices with careful setting of the mix knob allowing them to blend in naturally without dominating the main vocal.
With the correct blend set and a touch of reverb they can sound quite sublime and very close to the real thing. The thirds and fifths above and below plus the two unison settings provide a range of combinations that give plenty of scope for finding something that will both suit your voice and the particular song.
It worked both live and with a recorded vocal and rhythm guitar. Most Popular Most Shared 1.
