Harmonizer users ?

My guitarist / friend / bandmate quit not so long ago so now I'm the only guitarist in our band. (apart from our singer who picked up guitarplaying to fill up a bit during solo's)

We play "Can't get enough" from Bad Compagny which has that really cool solo in it with 2 guitarparts playing together.

Now I'm wondering if I might be able with a harmonizer or whatever it's called to mimic the double lead parts.

Is there anybody that can help ?

 

Thanks.

 

 

Giga.

Get a Boss HR-2 Harmonist


:D

I`m using a Rocktron Intellipitch (just used available) since several years now. Its 1 RU, does its job good and is standard Rocktron quality. In combination with the G-Major I have all I need. Ebay sometimes has them for 300

:p:D


AFAIK you can`t use flat tunings with it. The better stuff of course is fully adjustable - and programmable over midi.

I play lots of Lizzy stuff with it (the I-Pitch) and while it can`t replace a real axeman its pretty good, you just have to tweak it correctly and find the "good" scales (out of 10 or 11).

I just use the unit for harmonizing, everything else is done by the Major.

That works too, but keep in mind that the Force has a lot of other features too. Its got better quality effects than the Major and the build quality is a lot better. You can get one used for about $800 so if you can spend a bit more I think youll be happier in the long run.


EDIT: Oops. I just read your post saying that you already have the units. If it does what you want then thats all you need :cool: .

I just sold an HR-2 -- you can do flat keys with it, and it did indeed track much better (i.e., flawlessly) with a dry line running straight from the guitar to the second input. Fwiw. :)

Before that, I used the intelligent pitch shifting built into my Digitech GSP 2101 Artist, and it came off very well live, especially when using the real-time footcontrollers on my midi board to change the intervals while playing... :cool:

The opening riff is the harmonizer, then follows a harmonizer part with another track (non-harmonized) played over that - so three voices - if I remember correctly :)
