This is a pretty amazing voice manipulation pedal. The pedal is a voice processor that is great for making harmonies. The program can be updated with a computer, although the updates are minimal and slow to come at best. This is not a rackable pedal, nor is it MIDI controlled. It does come with it's own controllers, which are almost MIDI-like in their function. It is a purely digital technology.

UTILIZATION

This isn't the most intuitive pedal I've used, but it works. Basically, you need to do a lot of work with your feet. There are keys and pitches that you need to select with the footswitch, which has a whopping 8 buttons. You can use the switches to shuffle between different tonal centers (A through G) as well as intervals (3rd, 5th, combinations). It definitely takes some getting used to, and a decent amount of preset programming and other setup as well. You also need to use an instrument in tandem with it to really get the full effect.

SOUND QUALITY

Fortunately, the main selling point of this feature is the sound quality. This actually produces a rather real-sounding harmonic addition to your singing. I was pretty amazed to hear the fullness and clarity of the vocals, they are definitely slightly artificial sounding but it is way better than most other boxes like this. I also recently discovered the Electro-Harmonix Voice box and I think that this one sounds way more authentic. It also has a lot more range than the Voice Box, though it's not as easy to use. The difference between products such as these depends on how much emphasis you'd like to place on the artificiality of the vocals.

OVERALL OPINION

I'd say that this is definitely worth checking out if you are interested in really good-sounding harmonizers. If you have no interest in fake harmonies of any kind, you should definitely avoid this product. However, it is a really cool way to work out harmonies and have immediate backup vocals in a solo performance.
