I bought this unit about a year ago and it exceeded my expectations. It has a nice color screen that is easy to read in a dark club. Very good build quality, front panel controls operate smoothly. It has 4 outputs so individual voices can be mixed separately when recording or live. Also has and additional output for the lead voice to send to FOH sound man so lead vocal is never overpowered by harmonies. Digitech licensed Lexicon effects and a Soundcraft Preamp, so there?s proven quality built in.I provide MIDI data via a separate track on my sequencer so the harmonies are 100% accurate. It is also possible to sing Acapulco with no MIDI data by selecting what key and what scale to use for a song; the unit can be set for what vocal intervals you want (above and below) to accompany the lead vocal. It also has MusicIQ that works pretty well for a guitarist that provide chords to the unit while they sing. I prefer MIDI data for the best accuracy.The factory preset provide a nice variety of usable harmonies that can be edited and saved to a User preset. This unit comes with USB connection and with the free software, you can backup your User patches, and then reload them in different locations that are more convenient, or put in sequential order. This unit has a hot output so the unit is very quiet even when you crank up the vocals. The User Interface is easy to operate, even though this has a ton of great features built in. You can walk through each category and select what you want and save it. I suggest looking through all the specs to get a handle on how many great features it has.It sounds great. No chip monks in this box. Many people that have heard me play asked me how I got all the voices and asked if I was using real audio or recordings. Very realistic. This unit is a bargain for the price, considering what it can do.

I was excited about the release of the Vocalist Pro like others in the Vocalist support forums. The idea of integrating a harmony processor into my digital studio and triggering this rack using MIDI or guitar was really exciting. The rack is a nice piece of equipment and but it is not studio worthy. They should have just kept this thing a pedal and expanded it to MIDI. I say this because DigiTech offers no visual editor for this thing. You will find after you use it for a while that the presets are pretty bad and you will want to tweak things. They give you plenty of params to tweak but you are gonna be stooping over dialing and pressing buttons only have to go sing into a mic to test it. Trust me and spend your money on a software plugin instead. DigiTech doesn't even seem to care enough to repsond to their own forums about this. Really sucks cause this thing had potential. I get a very solid impression that we all paid for the R&D and they have abandoned us.

    Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

    I've been successfully using Digitech Harmonizers since 1990. They have excellent customer service...well at least as of 3 years ago that I know of. I used to own this to use in LIVE Venues. Then I realized the LED screen was very difficult to read on stage. Maybe it's my eyes (all 4 of them) but I couldn't take it anymore and got the VOICE_Live1 with a large, clear LED. Other than that, it's the reason I can only give this 2 stars. 99 user 'slots' vs. around 400 on the VL2. This is a great price seeing that I paid double this price for mine back in the day. Good Luck. Don

      Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

      I use a MIDI keyboard and the vocalizer to produce a one-man-band sound with harmony vocals. Folks tend to shy away from this concept until they've heard it. When set up properly, it's amazing.

      Tried other brands more expensive and returned it. This one is the best. I gave it a 4 star because of the viewing panel, it corrupts at times and have to shut it down and turn it back on again.

        Takes a bit to set it up for a MIDI application from a keyboard, but once configured, it works great. I use Channel 16 in all my MIDI files to place the chord changes, and then set up Channel 16 on the Live Pro to produce the harmonies I want.

        Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

        I got this board after I seen it used and thought it would be a great tool to have in my studio for doing quick harmonies. I have it setup up with my DAW to track each harmony voice to it's own track for complete control as if I was recording 4 vocalists. I did a duet, trio, quartet and even created a choir...I just wish they would update their editing software to run in windows 10 64-bit DigiTech as well as software that would control this until from within my PC/DAW. The Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor so far has performed great and I hope to do a lot more with it in the future...
