What are the effects or types of effects available?
Harmony intelligent Harmonizer color (a stupid pitch shifter), Chorus (2 to 8 voices), Delay, Reverb, Ducker, Hush (noise reduction). He also tuner. This is actually an intelligent harmonizer with Intellifex.

What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
Analog and digital.
Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Normal, and there are a publisher by Rocktron but I could not try it.

What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
2 Inputs: Right (mono) and left.
Output 2: Right and left
1 MIDI IN, 1 MIDI THRU / OUT
And a phantom power outlet (provides power to another element via MIDI)

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Relatively simple, just fly over the manual vaguely to get by. A regular multi-effect comes out easily. For the configuration of the harmonizer is common to all harmonizers: Choice of the note, the range, interval, note the presence of doubled (mix), Pan .. Other effects can be configured as the Intellifex.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

The harmonizer is very good, normal is the main effect of the rack;). It sounds very clean, precise. You should know that Wave Mechanics (Eventide etc. ..) who designed the engine of this effect in the rack. 8 voice chorus is very deep and rich, nothing to do with my old Zoom GFX-8. As for the delay, it sounds hot, even for the digital. I tried a TC Electronic G-Major before, delays are a bit cooler, but more defined.

The Duck, the notice said: "The Ducker allows the user to remove the level of a signal or effect given dynamically, depending on the presence of another signal that is wanted to be dominant." Basically: You can remove an effect of a patch according to the level of the pick attack on the strings.

And then I arrive at the most important: transparency This rack is completely transparent, and yet I am very hard on this. Thanks to the Hush Pre / Post Hush, you can choose if the signal is digitally converted by the AD / DA converters or not. Mixer with adjustable function (0 to 100). Result: Pre Hush mode, the rack is completely true-bypass. For this reason, henceforth, will be ca Rocktron or nothing!

OVERALL OPINION

Intellipitch this brief is to me an excellent multi-purpose. Clear, warm, and totally transparent . Initially I had problems (the "click" with each change of preset containing the harmonizer effect), it is now settled: it was the loop of my amp that was acting up! This is also one of the few (not to say the only) harmonizers to be as transparent for this price (300 € Used!) I forgot: no lag between changes in patch!
