Pedals that help enrich your voice is a good thing when you are both the performer and sound engineer. Some music venues that you may play in either have superior or inferior sound systems so this type of pedal might be an easy way to balance out your sound pitch and tone. Some musicians, traditionalists and critics alike tend to view this as way of electronically doping your vocals. Either way this is a great asset to take advantage of as a way to polish up your vocal tone.
I’ve seen these things on web sites and in music stores in the past but I only found it as a passing fancy that didn’t keep my attention up. These were the first generation modules that appeared to be only gimmicks. The end result made your voice appear too digital and fake. Today’s voice pedals seem to be much more advanced in my ways.
The products out there now offer control of your pitch, warmth of tone and even have the capability to harmonize and remember phrasings in real time!
A couple of great guitar friends of mine named John Ball and Eddie Myers, both from Brantford, had guitar harmonizers. They sounded neat at fist listen to but the didn’t have a realistic colour to them. The harmonizing guitars that the pedals made developed a distant feel to them, as if they were on a separate track hidden in the background. We didn’t even think of putting a microphone through them at the time but the results would more then likely be the same.
So you tell me, what do you think about it? Have you owned this or similar products like this and what were the pros and cons of them!
