Digitech® Ships Vocalist® Live Pro Vocal Harmony And Effects Processor

-- DigiTech brings to market the Vocalist® Live Pro - the first multi-part vocal harmony 1U rack processor for guitar and keyboard with MIDI and musIQTM -- SALT LAKE CITY, UT, April 23, 2008 -- DigiTech®, a leading manufacturer of guitar signal processors, and a Harman International company (NYSE-HAR), is now shipping the Vocalist® Live Pro vocal harmony and effects rack processor. The Vocalist Live Pro furthers DigiTech's ongoing philosophy of developing products designed to supply musicians with the best sounding, most creative tools possible.

The Vocalist Live Pro continues in the tradition of the critically acclaimed Vocalist Live 4 and Vocalist Live 2 processors. The Vocalist Live Pro employs powerful musIQTM technology to accurately create multi-part harmony by analyzing a musical accompaniment signal. Like the Live 4 and Vocalist Live 2, the Vocalist Live Pro works with any electric or amplified acoustic guitar. Additionally, because the Vocalist Live Pro also accepts MIDI, keyboard players can now get musically intelligent vocal harmonies just by playing in a natural accompaniment style. There is no tedious programming or knowledge of complicated music theory needed. Simply play any guitar or keyboard, and the Vocalist Live Pro will figure out which great sounding harmony to create. The user can choose harmony shifts in a two-octave range, including unisons, to create up to four-part harmony. It's that simple. The Vocalist Live Pro is a 1U rack mounted unit and weighs 3 lbs.
