Incredible Chord-based Harmony and Effects!

DigiTech's Vocalist Live Pro is a smart harmony vocal and effects rack processor based on Digitech's acclaimed Vocalist Live 4! Boasting improved note detection methods, and a MIDI interface that works with keyboards as well as guitars, the Vocalist Live Pro can create three or four part real-time harmonies with your live voice that are in key, in perfect pitch, and based entirely on the chords you are playing! With the VLPro, you also get a ton of world-class effects, including Lexicon reverbs, and the ability to select individual personas and genders for your virtual backup singers. Completely controllable onstage via an optional foot switch, you can kick in the harmonies at just the right moment with your Digitech Vocalist Live Pro!

Digitech Vocalist Live Pro at a Glance:
  • Harmony based on chord recognition
  • World-class effects
  • High-quality mic pre
  • USB connectivity for tweaking presets
  • Controllable via footswitch

Harmony based on chord recognition
The Vocalist Live Pro incorporates Digitech's MusIQ technology that actually analyzes the chords you're playing on your guitar or keyboard. It produces three or four part vocal harmony based expressly on what you play. You can choose unison, 3rd, 5th, or octaves above or below the lead vocal to get the right sound, storing presets for each of your songs.

World-class effects and presets
Not only can you pitch correct each individual voice with four adjustable parameters, you also have full control over a compressor, and Lexicon-licenses reverbs and EQ. Persona models let you actually select the gender and "style" of each of your backup singers, giving you a wide range of sonic and tonal possibilities. 99 factory presets are onboard the Vocalist Live Pro, which you can easily edit, recalling up to 99 presets of your own!

High-quality mic pre
The Vocalist Live Pro features a studio-grade Soundcraft mic preamp, complete with 48v phantom power for easily using any of your favorite condenser mics on stage for great sound.

USB connectivity for tweaking and loading presets
Connect your Vocalist Live Pro to your computer via USB, and you have complete control over your presets. As you experiment more and more with your VLPro, you still won't have to worry about forgetting your favorite presets - you can keep them archived on your computer, loading any 99 onto your VLPro via USB as you rehearse for your next gig!

Controllable via footswitch
While the Vocalist Live Pro is a mighty effects rack processor, it's designed expressly for the performer. You can control your VLPro via footswitch as well as expression pedal jacks, giving you control over your presets and effects for even more expressive, dynamic performances!

Sweetwater Advice

Josh Wellington

Adding the Vocalist Live Pro to your rig is like adding four backup singers to your bond (except the Vocalist fits into a single rack unit). With the Vocalist, you get up to four voices of harmony AND a ton of onboard pre/post effects, to help create the perfect sounds. All of the settings are easily accessed by the simple controls on the front of the unit, but it also supports both MIDI and USB (with a free preset librarian) to add further control. With MIDI you can send program changes to alter effects and patches on the fly. You can also backup all of your presets to your computer via the USB connection. The Vocalist incorporates DigiTech's MusIQ chord tracking program, which automatically selects harmonies based on the chords that are coming into the system (from a guitar, keyboard, etc). When I tested out the MusIQ, I sang an E into my mic and played an E-Major chord on my guitar, and it quickly voiced the harmonies for that chord. I continued holding the E and switched my guitar chord to A-minor and it immediately revoiced the harmonies to fit the A-minor chord. I played through a bunch of other chords around E and the MusIQ was spot on in every situation. There's no easier way to add harmonies to your vocals (especially such perfectly tuned harmonies). If you're a singer, the Vocalist Live Pro needs to be in your rack.
