I?ll attempt a comprehensive review that will, hopefully, offer consumers some concrete information to consider when buying.Pros:1) Offers features that can expand and improve the sound of a solo singer/ guitarist.2) Harmony ?patches? as well as ?Part A/B? foot switch are helpful and easy to use.3) ?Pitch correction? is somewhat helpful, but makes the voice sound overly processed if turned up too much.4) ?Humanize? control can help make the harmony sound much more life-like, (actually lets you set the amount of delay in the harmony).5) ?Gender? control is a useful feature ?Voicing? sounds okay if you don?t exceed the ?high? setting (above) and the ?low" setting (below). If you set it more than one third above or below, it sounds overly processed and fake.6) You must be able to sing mostly on pitch (even with ?pitch correction? engaged), or the harmonizer will produce incorrect notes.7) This system does a decent job of ?reading? your guitar if you stick primarily to major and minor chords. If you try to use more complicated chords system will sometimes produce incorrect harmony notes.8) The system works best while strumming the guitar. If you do much picking, it will sometimes produce incorrect harmony notes.Cons:1) Voice setting of ?higher,? ?octave,? lower? and ?bass? sound so processed they are virtually useless2) I hear no difference when engaging the ?warmth? effect. Maybe because I?m using an old ?tube? type PA??3) Watch your speaker placement, or the system will pick up the guitar signal from your amp and create slight fuzziness and distortion on the guitar sound4) See limitations above describe under ?Pros?-- #6, #7, #8..Conclusion:If you go light on the effects, use it for primarily uncomplicated songs, and are willing to limit the amount of picking (as opposed to strumming) you do, this system can offer some useful improvements to your over all sound. Buy it from a vendor that will let you return it if unsatisfied, and don?t expect miracles. Overall, however, I?m glad I bought it and I?d definitely buy it again. I hope those of you considering buying this pedal will find this information useful.

I read the reviews and drove in to Guitarcenter yesterday to buy this. Needless to say from the reviews on this site, I was pretty pumped. Upon unboxing it, the box is very solid and the construction looks like it would hold up for gigging. The issue I had with this is that once I plugged it in, there are some very large limitations with this pedal that I would have expected Digitech to fix. The main two issues I have are 1) if you are only playing chords (such as C, G, D, A, E, F, etc. - your normal chords), the pedal doesn't sound bad when you actually turn both the genders to male and keep the mix mainly your voice with a small bit of backup. Once you start picking, the pedal acts wonky. If you are trying to play as if you have 3 part harmony on a picking section, you are more than likely going to hear notes that the fake voice matches that are out of key from what you are actually singing. It is very odd. I'm surprised this was missed. 2) The female voices sound VERY VERY flanged and quite robotic. I thought this would be one of those products that gets it right (b/c it does look awesome in the box and on the NAMM demos (but those guys are from R+D and know exactly how to play the songs that sound great (this does not apply to all songs on a gig list!!)). Put it this way. If you need this product to spice up your acoustic set and play just chords and have a somewhat weak voice, this might help. If you actually have a voice, I'd recommend getting a TC Helicon or something of that nature to beef up your own sound. People that gig all the time won't find this useful on 50% of the songs they play and like I said, the pitch match while playing odd chords and picking is lackluster.

    Effects not as good as expected. Slight bleedthrough of guitar when harmony is on. Maybe defective? Have used vocalist 2&4 sounded better.

    Does the job--sometimes

    Cons

    • Poor Quality Duplicates

    Best Uses

    • Performances

    While the sound quality and versatility of the vocal sounds you can get with harmonies are admirable, this unit seems to have real difficulty interpreting even the simplest of 4 note chords coming from the guitar. For example, the harmonies might sound fine on a C chord, but play a C7 and the Vocalist doesn't seem to know what to do. Also, let's say while you're playing that C chord, you're singing a G note down to an E. If you hit an F in the middle--a natural thing to do--the Vocalist gets easily lost when you sing the F note. These traits are, at the very least, aggravating.

      This unit is well built, has great sounding harmonies. For the price, I don't think there is anything out there comparable in performance. I wish it would allow more control of how the harmonies work. But of course that would make it more like the Live 5, which is twice as expensive. All in all, I am pretty happy with the Live 3.

          I have a Digitech Harmonizer from the 90's that gets dead on 4 part harmonies. I was replacing it only because the LCD screen broke. After 15 minutes with the Digi Vocalist, it went back in the box and returned. Don't buy this.

              I've been using the Vocalist Live 3 (professionally) for 2 and 1/2 years now. Don't believe the negative reviews, especially when the same guy posts multiple bad reviews. This little machine is above and beyond what you'd expect from a vocal harmonizer, and it'd built like a tank.
