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.

Ask me a question

Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

Digitech Vocalist Live Pro, used in a guitar/bass/drums trio for classic funk, disco and country rock. Live it's controlled off the guitar, in the studio with MIDI. After a short time practicing with the unit, controlling the harmonies with the guitar-to-MusIQ became very intuitive. Even suspensions, rootless voicings and raised ninths yield useful harmonies with a little forethought. After a chord is established fingerpicking will not confuse it (usually!) Very impressive voices. Not 100 percent natural, but choosing the right voicings for a song can make it very hard to detect the artifice. The native patches are very useful, and I've used the more extreme FX with my plain vanilla James Taylor-esque voice to do a convincing Black Eyed Peas. I slightly augment my natural voice with the FX all the time now, helps a lot when you sing four sets alone. I like being able to turn lead voice FX, harmonies and reverbs on and off separately on the front panel. I strongly recommend a footswitch, (I have the FS3X) to kick the harmonies in and out on the fly. Lots of tweakables for studio apps. This thing just feels good to use.

Best with bkgd singer, not lead

By dirtmouthbmk

from OCONUS

Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

For best results, use your rhythm guitarist's direct input to provide chord inputs and have a separate backing singer provide the pitch that the Vocalist Live Pro builds the harmony from. If the backing vocals don't harmonize the lead vocal line exactly (for our 80s/90s alt rock/metal setlist this is the case more often than not) then the musIQ logic will attempt to follow along and wind up changing back and forth for every little nuance and imperfection in your lead singer's voice. The result sounds like a choir of bad yodelers with ADHD and is unusable for a live gigHere's how we achieved our best results: 1) we still have someone else in the band sing backing vox in order to provide a steady pitch for the musIQ logic. 2) Next step is to use an optional foot switch/expression pedal to switch between harmony effects. 3) The last step is to let your dedicated lead vocalist control those pedals that change/mute the harmonies created from the backing singer's voice.Using this setup we achieved a fantastic harmony vocal sound every bit as convincing as advertised. If you understand these recommendations this unit is worth every penny of the asking price.

Impressive indeed

By hotfastguitar

from San Jose

Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

This is NOT a magic bullet. If you cannot sing in tune it aint gonna fix that in a convincing way. I am however lucky enough to have good pitch, and am astounded at how well the basic settings right out of the box work. Do the glenn frey part in seven bridges road by the eagles while using patch 43-seven bridges....then slip into the don henley bridge, and lsiten carefully to how well it covers. It aint perfect however. It isnt smart enough to know when a pedal tone is being used as part of the bed so you have to srum the chords or risk the harmony parts slipping all over the place. The patches I find myself using most are actually the simple unisons on patch 7 and 8, and a few of the other presets have me jazzed as well. Bang for the buck cannot be beat. Mic pre sounds very warm compared to my Mackie ONYX 1200F but I record through them both as well as with all four of the outs for individual voice control. I use it with an MAudio Sputnik and through the 1200F directly into the Mac at 48K. The next gen should be even better as the technology matures, but this thing is staying in my rack permanently. I would not hesitate to use it live,

    Digitech makes quality items. This Rackmount should have the pitch correction function like the Vocalist Live stompbox has. Very small buttons with unlighted labeling make for hard to see and manipulate controls.

    Harmonies and so much more

    By A Jay-Q.ViE

    from Undisclosed

    See all my reviews

    Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

    This box can do so much: Harmonies baised off the guitar as an input, great for soloists who want harmony vocals. Can take input from MIDI (Think the song "Hide and Seek" from Imogen Heap: does that perfectly). Many other features like it can change the tone of the lead vocals: make you sound more "Rock" or "Operatic". Also has compression and pitch correction. So many features loaded into one box. Downsides? I would prefer if it came with a GUI, and had the option to adjust the digital S/PDIF output level, but these are minor. This box is worth so much more then what you'll pay for it.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    By SoCalDave

    from Inland Empire California

    See all my reviews

    Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

    It's about time! Digitech has come up with a natural sounding harmony processor that doesn't make you sound like you're hooked up to some kind of synthesizer. Great features like Lexicon reverb/delay, front panel knobs and switches for both melody & harmony voice, footswitch access, stereo harmony/melody XLR outputs and melody dry XLR through output put this unit in a class by itself, especially for it's price. It's easy to set up, easy to program, works with both guitar and midi input and sounds fantastic. There is a little bit of a learning curve vocally as you find out how it tracks your pitch for processing. Solo acts can now have full harmony, bands with few singers can now have full harmony & those of us who aren't blessed with soaring tenor voices can now sing all those harmonies without busting a gut. You could even set the Vocalist Live Pro to output an octave up and sing all those killer melodies an octave low and let the processor soar for you. The possibilities are limitless. You can become Queen, CSN&Y, Journey, The Byrds, The Eagles, The Hollies or whatever group strikes your fancy. You'll be surprised, amazed & then wonder what you ever did before you had one.

      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

          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...

              Comments about DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro Vocal Harmony Processor:

              I have a Digitech Live Pro for four years now. However, I have hardly used it so far. I would like to use it more often, both in duo formations as well as in a five-person band. I buy this live pro buy Bax shop in Goes, Netherlands. They don't have the richt answer So i hope you have.

              On my Nord Stage 2 I sometimes play songs in a different key than what the band plays. For example, originally the band plays in Cis, while I play in C. Unfortunately the harmony does not sound pure. It does though, when I play and sing in C.
              If I pitch-up a song let's say 5 taps or keys, but play in C, it does not sound well. It's falls. Which settings do I need to make sure the harmony remains in tact after transposing?

              Does it have anything to do with 'receive' or 'sent' on the Nord Stage 2 or Live Pro? When I transpose the and on the Nord I play the same accords, then it sounds not good.
              I hope my description is clear and look forward to receiving your support. Thank you in advance.

              Best regards,
              Henk
