OVERVIEW

Multi-FX foot-controlled vocal processor.

The Vocalist Live FX is a next generation vocal effect processor with studio quality vocal effects and Live Adapt listening technology. When you're on stage you need the same high performance and superior audio quality you're accustomed to from the studio. The Vocalist Live FX puts professional studio grade vocal effect processing at your feet on stage. Licensed Lexicon reverb, dbx compression, and Automatic Feedback Supression give you powerful tools to make every vocal performance powerful captivative, and engaging to your audience.

During the performance, the Live Adapt feature can automatically detect your song's tempo, key, and scale to automatically adjust for the best vocal sound. The Gold Channel allows you to engage the channel strip with the press of a button so you can sound good in an instant. The Anti-Feedback button automatically sets filters to eliminate feedback and help ensure you're not caught holding the mic while feedback decimates the audience.

Features include:

Live Adapt: New performance adaptive technology listens to your voice and the band to set tempo, noise gate levels, and harmony settings.

Gold Channel: global effect for a solid sonic foundation
Sound Check: Simple phrase repeater that allows you to record once and play back continiously while you dial in your effect settings or adjust the PA

True Studio Quality Effects: Although many of our competitors make the same claim, the Live FX uses liscensed dbx compression and Lexicon reverb. You'll find dbx and Lexicon gear in virtually every major recording studio around the world.

dbx Automatic Feedback Supression: using industry-leading dbx technology, the Live FX automatically listens calibrates up to 12 different filters to eliminate feedback. Nothing is worse than seeing your audience throw their hands up to cover their ears during your performance. The Live FX works to ensure you never experience that.

I love this pedal! The Live Adapt feature is one of the best technological advances in music I've experienced. The harmonies sound more authentic than my TC Helicon VoiceLive (the original, I haven't tried their later versions but they're far pricier regardless). Sound Check is invaluable as is the looper. To me, it beats out the competition as it is, however, there are a few hardware or firmware improvements Digitech might consider to take it to an even higher level.
1) Jamsync or having the FS3X (using a splitter) to trigger the same functions as the soloxt in order to sync the loops from both or other digitech pedals (or midi for nonproprietary units)
2) More tweekability (where TC is better) and/or options of effects. Or maybe an insert for external effects? I just was a bit underwhelmed with the distortion and delay options (though I have to commend it for including multiple ducking delays that so many units outright ignore). To get a good megaphone sound you have to use the filter to cut frequencies, but it also unfortunately cuts volume which kind of defeats the purpose. Maybe a separate gain boost in this effect?
3) Ability to have different effects (such as delay time) within the a/b function instead of just turning them off or on. Yes, there's a workaround with an expression pedal or program change but it's less convenient. Speaking of the expression pedal (and I've only used a volume pedal for it so far so it may be because of that) but there are at least 2 issues I've come across - it's minimum is in full heel down or up while the maximum is anywhere inbetween which is just odd, the other is that while it works on changing non-adjacent delay times, it won't change between 1x and 2x.
4) Eliminate redundancy in the harmony options. For example, you have both 8up8down and 8down8up with no noticeable difference in mix or anything. It's probably not taking up enough memory space to otherwise add another feature but it just seems silly. Adding a separate reverb or just a dedicated output to the harmonies would also help create a better sense of space.
Anyway, I do love this product and though know many of these suggestions may not be feasible (at least at this price point), I wouldn't have bothered suggesting them to anything with less potential. Good job!

After ordering two units (see 1st review) on the Stupid Deal, 99 doll. each. BOTH arrived defective. A call to M F got return labels, BUT they told me, "They were out, but had 50 more coming in. However, when they were gone, they would not sell these any more." The disturbing part was they said that, "They would have to fill new orders before they could send me mine!" Those are orders arriving after I had placed my orders.

A Gearhead who read and responded to my first review, said they would "try to put mine to the front, but no guarantee." Last week, a unit arrived. An email came the next day stating, "they issued a refund for the other one, they sold out early."

I called, to find out that happened to mine...surprise, they sold out, not one for me. After numerous emails with Digitech, and a M F supervisor, I was told I was out of luck. I could buy an "open box unit" if I wanted, but there were none avail from Digitech. The Digitech people were telling me they have units. Guitar center (who owns MF) is selling them today for 199. Sounds fishy to me. They could have gotten a unit from them. (all emails avail)

Then, a M F Gearhead writes and tells me, "but for the time being, it isn't available through our company. It sounds like we've just seen too many issues with the item." The reponse from Digitech was that, "Here in repair and support, we have not seen any epidemic number of problems with the Live FX."

You are free to draw your own conclusions here. I one unit and wanted two, and I am now trying to decide IF I should return the one I have, wondering what kind of service I would have from it. Speaking of which, I told the M F rep to, "Send me one of my units I returned, I can send it to Digitech to be repaired under warranty." They would not even do that. This has been one of the worst purchases from M F (or from anyone) I have made in a great while. I am tempted to write a letter to corporate headquarters, but they may not care!

Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live FX Vocal Effects Processor:

purchased this to replace my aging Digitech vocal 300, downloaded 60+ page manual from Digitech site, checked all the presets, with some tweaking I think it's going to serve me well, noticed that the verbs seem washy solo but punch through nicely with electric guitar and back tracks happenin' (due to live adapt?) also hope I can tweak delays to suit, I'll review again when I have time to do that and share results.
The Live adapt and anti feedback seem to work well, it's c.a. half the size of my 300 and is built like a tank, switches and knobs are nicely located and feel very substantial.
I'm anticipating a steep learning curve on this, that's why 4 stars.

    Pretty cool device that is constructed well. Knobs and switches seem to be robust and there is a lot to tweak if you like. There is also Liberian software you can download so you can move presets around easily.
    The pedal is for the most part metal so should take a beating.

      I've been recording myself and others for 40 years, have heard many pedal and rack mount FX units; this has dozens of combinations of studio caliber FX in a small, easy to use foot pedal that rival and sometimes surpass many of the more expensive rack mount units' sound. Built like a tank and a looper as well -- was one of the best stupid deals yet.

          Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live FX Vocal Effects Processor:

          I am in an acoustic duo. My singing is average at best. I replaced my TC Harmony singer with this, and have no regrets.The reverb on this is better, I like that you can easily tweak both reverb,delay and harmony type and level. Some comments say its hard to figure out, I didnt think so. The presets are very usable, I have 5 or 6 that I moved to the front and use. You can even tweak the amount of pitch correction on the gold channel so its not so noticeable. It just has a better overall EQ sound, and gives me more confidence singing. The only downside is its a little bulkier than the TC pedal, but thats a small inconvience. When I look at guitarists with 6 0r 8 pedals , this seems small by comparison.

            I have this on one mic alongside a TC Helicon mic mechanic on a second. They are both similar in price but obviously the Digitech has a lot more features. For what they have in common though (reverb, auto tune, auto eq), the mic mechanic is clearer and more natural sounding. The Digitech gold channel is a little darker, little muddier, and more of a hard tune effect. Still very usable though and without a side by side comparison you probably wouldn't know any better.

              I'm a singer/songwriter and often perform solo. This unit has an XLR imput for a microphone and has phantom power if needed. It has a microphone built in for ambient sound to harmonize with. I tried it with an acoustic guitar (unplugged) playing fingertstyle and a mic and listened through headphones. The harmony was pretty accuate considering how I did it. I'm sure it will be much better when I have the guitar plugged into an amp. It has several other vocal effects, too.

              Unit is quite versatile. Great FX. Good harmonies. The higher harmonies could be a little louder; they tend to get lost in the lower harmonies. Overall, I am pleased with the unit.
