DigiTech®, a leading manufacturer of vocal processors, and a Harman International company (NYSE-HAR), has introduced the newest addition to the Vocalist® product line, the Live 5 processor. The Live 5 is designed to provide guitarists with the most intuitive, user-friendly, vocal effects and harmony processor available. The pedal will give artists the ability to effortlessly create full, natural sounding 5 part vocal harmonies.
The Live 5 combines studio-quality audio performance, state-of-the-art vocal processing, and an easy-to-use control interface to add up to four independent voices of harmony to a lead vocal to create a full five-part harmony. The Live 5 has Gender Control that gives each harmonizing voice a masculine or feminine sound. Users can customize the natural sound of the harmonizing voices from loose to tight by adjusting the Humanize setting.
The new Vocalist Live 5 makes it easier than ever to set up and personalize multi-part vocal harmony by automatically following your vocals and chord progression using patented musIQ® technology. MusIQ eliminates the need to pre-program the songs' key or key changes to create accurate harmonies, making the Live 5 much easier to use.
The built-in chromatic pitch correction in the Live 5 has the most natural sound available on the market. There are different vocal effects available to help give the vocals a high-quality, professional-grade studio sound. These effects include preamp, compressor/gate, lead effects, harmony, reverb, level effects, and echo/delay. There are three different room settings for reverb and five separate delay settings for vocals. The Live 5 also has guitar effects, reverb, chorus and flange as well as 100 presets to save vocal effects and harmony setting, each with an A and B parts for quick, easy changes on-stage.
The Vocalist Live 5 is now shipping with an MSRP of $649.95.
