DigiTech, a leading manufacturer of guitar, bass, and vocal processors, has announced its newest addition to its popular line of vocalist products: the VL3D Desktop Harmony Processor. The VL3D is specially designed for keyboard players requiring back-up harmonies for either live performance or studio recording.
The VL3D offers 3-part harmonies using DigiTech’s exclusive MusIQ™ Technology, which analyzes the singer’s voice and adds the most musically correct harmonies while offering real-time pitch correction and gender control. Featuring single-level programmability and five user defined voicing patches, the VL3D can be programmed on the fly without missing a note. The VL3D’s inputs include Midi In, Out/Thru, guitar or line level, and XLR.
Effects available with the VL3D include reverb (studio, room and hall) and a pre-effects section with warmth, compression, de-esser, and noise gate. Additionally, there are controls for Harmony Mix, and an A/B part selector with humanizing mix for dialing in precise gender effects.
Speaking about the new VL3D, Scott Grow marketing manager for DigiTech stated, “The VL3D represents the latest in vocal harmony technology, and our commitment to giving musicians the most advanced processing and best sounding effects in the industry”.
The DigiTech Vocalist VL3D Desktop Harmony Processor has an MSRP of $429.95 and is shipping in February 2009.
