    DigiTech Vocalist Live 2Published on 03/29/09 at 01:21

    First post: May 2008
    The DIGITECH Vocalist Live 2 aims to create vocal harmonies thanks to a technology based on the recognition of guitar chords.
    It presents as an aluminum watch case from about 25 X 25 cm, with two pedals pressure in its lower part and rglage commands in faade. The connections of the various inputs (guitar, microphone) are made on the rear bracket with Jack or XLR.
    48V supply for the microphone is included, and a tuner for guitar.

    48V supply for the microphone is included, and a tuner for guitar.

    USE

    The operating principle is simple but effective:
    - You plug your guitar or its low (pralablement accorded, it is mandatory for a walk) on a prvue between this, the micro singer also;
    - When playing the instrument embeds technology, which responds to the sweet name of "MusiQ" recognizes the melodic component of it and decomposes;
    - The song is then doubled or tripled the third or fifth in the crowd, according to initial rglages effectus and chords or notes that you play. Magic!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use the Live Vocalist for six months now and I can not get enough. The ease of use and most importantly, the results obtained are bluffing that we can not do without.
    Another point not ngligeable, the pedal allows you to learn to sing better, because it systematically reproduces the note pitch errors: one is condemned apply;-)
    The sound quality is at the rendezvous, the harmony voices as a true copy of the original voice (in other words, if you have a beautiful voice, the harmonies are beautiful, if you have a voice falsetto, you will also falsetto harmonies of nature is unfair).

    For example, a song or lead vocal is tripled thanks to the Vocalist and, subsequently, the three voices are themselves triple (relative time / efficiency hitherto unknown): https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,124592.html

    Another example harmonies with one voice!
    https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,122899.html

    As you can hear, I do not have a terrible voice and the unit using essentially the CORRECTNESS of choirs, no improvement of the singer's voice.

    Update December 2008: I am still very happy with my Vocalist Live and I does not add or subtract anything prcdent my opinion. However, I now turn to the "dcrocher" under certain conditions. Let me explain: by keeping only the harmony voice recording and augments with certain agreements, where the third or the fifth prsents are the fundamental note, the technology has trouble choosing make notes; concrete example, the choirs the end of this piece o If minor aug5 followed by Do add9 almost similar agreements are "wobble" voices produced!
    <a>
    Unbelievable but true ...:-)

    Update March 2009: even a small piece with two voices choirs, transformed into six using the Live Vocalist: https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,143609.html.
    FYI, after eighteen months of use, I'm still happy. It's really a great investment. For information, prices start really be affordable: https://www.thomann.de/fr/digitech_vocalist_2_live.htm?sid=1e695d2789e92bd16b3a11137c4a087e

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    For all these reasons, I put it without hsiter the highest rating because it really is a life changing product, such was able to do the invention of Bob Moog synth or bass electric Leo Fender. I took all my little music with the Live Vocalist and r-recorded all voice: this is the day and the night between the two versions!
    Do not hesitate, it is that has happens: https://mp3.audiofanzine.com/jhq

    Update June 2008: I just read on the US site Digitech the rack version of the Live Vocalist compatible Midi Keyboard is now available! http://www.digitech.com/products/Vocalistlivepro/index.php

    - What I prfre. You plug your guitar, microphone and go. I play and sing live alone and gives a more indniable on choruses or otherwise. He does not plant in the same choir with arpges to fast chord changes (such as "Blackbird" small masterpiece McCartnsque Beatles)

    - I bought my VL2 United States so great value for Q / Price (just add the price of a transformer 220/110V baybay on less than 10EUR)

    - In fact I'm so excited about the t VL2 (especially compared to the TC Helicon VoiceLive) I bought the VL4 tjrs United States I just received. It is both in terms of sound, just more parameters but ultimately too simple trs (manual not helpful either). So I'll sell my baybay soon on VL2.

    Effects: Compressor, Enhancer, and especially hamoniseur Reverb.
    Model pedal technology, digital audio connectors no noon no editing PC.

    UTILIZATION

    There is no easier to use, the manual, I did not even look. Note phantom power for microphone and a button "guitar ground" that must be a grounding of guitaree, but in any case of snoring keeps me ugly when I use it.
    But hey, little effect and no presets, so super easy to use!

    The only choise it lacks is precisely the presets, hence my note was only 8, but it is the vocalist live 4, which is much more expensive. And I'm not on the utility

    SOUND QUALITY

    For the sound quality is totally stunning. For settings, it's not complicated, the buttons are a 9 o'clock. When I use just the "effects", ca m'arrondit voice a little, but I do not need to add, having a voice based quite serious. When you use the "harmony", it seems to have three beautiful singers in his back trying to follow what they sing and what we play, it's great!
    If we abuse not mix between the normal voice and the "chorus", the effect is saisssant of truth, and make enough melodic ballads, it's really a tool of choice ...
    But beware: to avoid if you sing wrong, because the slightest error is followed and amplified by the chorus, and the effect is radical!

    But used properly, such as for example the
    is a treat. And really you get a kind of sound a fiddle munyutes three buttons, no need to learn long and tedious

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year.
    I like everything, I do not blame
    Very good value for money
    I would do well on that choice again!

    Finally I used acht illico test yesterday and until late at night.

    It is super perfect. Done everything I expected with three major aspects:

    1 - it is easy to use and good quality (I'm playing live or work in rept home and does not studio)

    2 - is rich enough with:

    up two more votes to choose the lead: third, fifth (above and below), unison

    effects if it does not console

    connectivity and rglages enough to grate a lot of situations

    3 - it saves time enriches the piece quickly in a group (fed up with not having a choir and not enough time to MeBr rept other group about the results for random image) AND plus it's a great tool for working the rigor of accompagment......

    I'll test it as soon reptition but I have no doubt and some ides ddier as a microphone for the vocalist as the others who sing a few songs can be used.

    I agree with what you sing best t crit, the better your exact. But I am sure that paying attention to rglages can greatly amliorer voice "normal".

    Must be chosen (ie varying) the second and troisimes voice and dosage based on songs (up or down) because everything is not good for everything.

    This works fine on my home directory: the ballads and rock and Goldman lennon the stones, beatles.

    I recommend all singers guitarists.

    Tonight I test on Coldplay because I will wait for a deep purple REPT (because of the neighbors).

    GENIAAAAAAAAAAAAAL this thing.

(Analog, digital, tube ...) All digital * Are they editable? Via a publisher Mac / PC? To turn the knobs and buttons to push presets ... okay? * What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI) audio jack and / or XLR * Is this a rack or rack-mount model? Stun pedal. On the ground, so. 8 / 10

    UTILIZATION

    * The general configuration is simple? Yes. Connector that allows connection to any system of distribution. * Editing of sounds and effects is easy? Obvious. No-brainer (even if ... I will return below) * The manual is clear and sufficient? ... Yes, but only in English. If I have time, I wonder if I will not be a translated version to download. We&#39;ll see, it&#39;s not my priority but it can serve those who stuck to English. 9 / 10

    SOUND QUALITY

    * Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough? So, I&#39;m going to divide my review into two parts because there are indeed two sides in the VL2. A / Section "harmony" is stirring realism, and brings a crazy time saving. I bought this pedal in order to leverage my voice choirs, not to treat my lead vocal. In making voice choirs, I get directly a total of 3 singers (in the virtual choir, I&#39;m the vocalist in a in, mixed with 2 singers supplemented by VL2). In two doses, there are 6 singers ... it would be the same too! The proportion of votes that instills harmonized with the balance knob dose as realism. If I had a sound card with multiple inputs, I amuse myself even treat different voices Additional pasting them on a separate track. B / Section "effects", it leaves me squarely on my hunger. Quality effects is not in question, rather it is the design effect "compression" which disappoints me greatly. For those who do not know how it works, I explain: Push the pedal "effects", that snap together comp + reverb + enhancer. How to switch between these effects which we do not want? Simply zeroing the rotary volume pot that is associated with each. Until then it&#39;s simple and it must necessarily walk, you might say, especially if the quality is nice effects. Well no, not in regard to the compressor. The compressor compresses, ok, almost imperceptible compression near zero to a strong compression at the maximum rotation of the volume pot. But the compressor is structurally combined with a noise gate. This is not written anywhere, that nobody knows, and I would like an email from a senior Digitech who confirmed the choice of engineering design. How does it interfere? It simply prevents the use of any greenhouse effect section when you are on a log singing "soft". You want to sing a ballad very soft, super quiet and intimate, using the "enhancer" for example you will lighten the tone of voice made of? The gate of VL2 will chop you the result. I made numerous attempts, I reached this conclusion, but I could not believe it myself until I ask Digitech, which I give you the answer right here that his technical manager m has made: "Unfortunately by the gate WAS Designed With live, loud stage volumes in mind, so low and whispering vocals arent going to Work With The effects are well. Bill Clayton Technical Customer Service Harman Signal Processing 8760 South Sandy Parkway Sandy, UT. 84070 &#39;Review: The VL2 is to be used in a register of voice at good volume at a minimum, and perfect in high volumes. It does not call into question the qualities of the product but the technical choices hamper its use. * Which instruments do you use? Guitar and keypad, because I repeat, it works perfectly with a keyboard (not the keyboard players, you are not excluded from the target potential users, you are not obliged either to learn the guitar or you scratch a fader to exploit the bug). * Which ones do you prefer, you hate? Damage to the gate, because the three effects are nice. It is true that the enhancer leads to a real change in the rendering of voices in a mix. 4 / 10 (too silly, this gate)

    OVERALL OPINION

    * For how long have you been using it? Fairly recently, I bought two months ago, but what I immediately thought to be a hardware failure caused me to leave out the product as I did not have my answers. Now I know what its technical limitations, it will be used to what it is made. * What thing do you like most/least about it? Fast, convenient and realistic. * Did you try many other models before getting this one? None * What is your opinion about the value for the price? Produced in late career, supplanted by the VL4 and other generations in the range Digitech, I see a great report quality / price since I hit nine to 180 €. * Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... Yes, but requires noise gate, I would have liked to have done already in full knowledge of the facts. That said, we&#39;ll find it in my songs, those where there is a little box anyway. 6 / 10 (great, but .... it was not the title of my opinion?)

    The Digitech Vocalist Live 2 is conceived to create vocal harmonies using a technology based on guitar chord recognition.

    It has a 10" x 10" aluminum housing with two expression pedals and several controls on the top panel. The rear panel provides different 1/4" jack and XLR inputs for guitar and mic.

    The unit provides 48 volt phantom power for condenser mics, and also a guitar tuner.

    UTILIZATION

    It's very easy to use and effective:

    - Plug your guitar or your bass (previously tuned otherwise it won't work) as well as the vocal mic;

    - When you play your instrument, the MusiQ technology recognizes its melodic component and analyzes it;

    - The vocals are then doubled or tripled and harmonized to the third or the fifth depending on the settings and the chords or notes being played. It's magic!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I've been using the Live Vocalist for six months and I just can't get enough. The ease of use and especially the results are addictive.

    Another important point is that this pedal allows you to become a better singer because it systematically reproduces every pitch inaccuracy, so it forces you to always give your best ;-)

    The sound quality is good: the harmonized signals are the exact copy of your voice so if you have a nice sounding voice, the harmonization will sound nice, but If you have an unpleasant voice the harmonies will also sound unpleasant... Nature is not fair!

    If you want to listen to some samples here is a song where the lead vocals are tripled by a Vocalist and then each of those voices is tripled again (unbeatable time/effectiveness ratio): https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,124592.html

    Here's another sample where you can listen to the harmonization with only one voice!
    https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,122899.html

    As you can surely notice I don't have a nice voice, however although the unit doesn't enhance the singer's performance it does help a lot when it comes to the PITCH of the chorus.

    Update December 2008: I'm still very satisfied with my Live Vocalist and I don't want to change my previous review. However I've discovered its weak points, under particular conditions. When I record only the harmony notes (without the root) and also with some augmented chords, where the third or the fifth are more present than the root, the technology has some problems to choose the right harmonization notes. Take the chorus at the end of the following song as an example where the B minor with augmented fifth is followed by a C add9 (very similar chords) making the generated voices to "trill"!

    https://fr.audiofanzine.com/compos/titres/index,idproduit,136882.html

    Incredible but true... :-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    For all this reasons I give it the best possible mark because it's a product which really changed my life (like Bob Moog synths or Fender electric bass had done before). I rerecorded all the vocals of my songs with the Live Vocalist and it makes a huge difference!

    Don't hesitate to listen to them, you can find them here: https://mp3.audiofanzine.com/jhq

    Update June 2008: I just read on the Digitech website that the rack-mounting Live Vocalist version is now available and is compatible with Midi and keyboards ! http://www.digitech.com/products/Vocalistlivepro/index.php

    The device is more expensive but provides a lot more functions...
