    Hi JohnnyZ-- if you're talking about the Helicon then the bleed wouldn't be a problem because you can set gates for your microphone. I set mine for about 6 inches and no sound at all came through except my voice. I haven't had a bleed problem with the Digitech yet but I'm less of a finesse player and more of a thumper-- I probably wouldn't even know it! As far as the odd chords go-- I'm detuned and use a capo up to the 7th fret on one guitar; on the other I'm detuned to a DADAAD tuning-- there's some real oddball chords and the Digitech seems to do fairly well . . . is it the Digitech you're talking about?

      Wow this new product is making it very hard for me to decide.

      Does the TC helicon have a good support group that shares patch settings?

        Yes-- they have an excellent forum dedicated to the Helicon: http://www.takeforum.com/tcheliconvoicel/index.php?mforum=tcheliconvoicel

        This is where I got most of my info . . . the moderators are really helpful and supportive. As IHoard mentioned, the Helicon is a great product but it definitely isn't as easy to use as the Digitech. If you spend the time with it you'll get a superior sound than the Digitech, but you'll still be "foot-dancing" alot when live on stage.

          Thanks I will check the forum out. I would rather have superior sound and have to work a little more. I don't think I will need it to be set too complicated. I would like a little auto tune and some simple harmonies and voice thickining.

            Regarding various product types...I think the main point to remember is that the name of the DigiTech product is the Vocalist Live 2. It's definitely optimized for the gigging musician, what with the ease of use and hassle-free operation. That doesn't mean you can't use it in the studio, of course, but if you want a complete vocal processing package you will need to pay some more and work some more.

              Thanks, that was the way I was leaning. I want something I can use on gigs and in my studio.

                  I wonder how it will work with Jazz chords. Lots of my songs are voiced with Jazz chords including Maj 7 and Dim 7 as well as 5th and Augumented.


                  I've thrown some pretty hefty voicings at it, and it doesn't glitch or produce "wrong" notes. Check out the demo from NAMM in the Theater, referenced earlier in this thread - the player is definitely going beyond major and minor.

                    If you had the same problem with different VL2s, then it's almost certain the problem relates to your setup, as so far, no one else has reported any reliability issues. You said the level is turned up, but does phantom power need to be on? Have you tried a real simple mic, like a Shure SM58? Have you tried a different mic cable? Are you sure the problem is with the mic going to the input rather than the output monitoring? My sense is that the problem is not with the VL2...

                      Are you using a mic that requires phantom power? Does the Live 2 have phantom power?

                      You may want to try a different cable, and mic.

                        Does the Live 2 have phantom power?


                        Yes, it does provide phantom power. Here's a shot of the rear panel; the phantom power button is in the upper left. An LED illuminates on the top panel when phantom power is enabled.

                          Sorry...I don't use Phantom Power 'cause I have a Shure sh55 and this is dynamic...can you send me a photo or design for a correct setup??

                                This is a bit of a long-shot, but you can actually get no output from the VL-2 in one circumstance: if your harmony gain is set to full (this solos the harmonies) and your harmony footswitch is off, then of course nothing comes out because the lead is completely off.
