2 voices to sound like more
« on: October 16, 2006, 08:44:20 am »

From time to time I have the need to make one, tow, or three voices sound like more, live.

I have two Lexicon MPX 500s, one Alesis Picoverb, and a Mackie SR 24-4-2* to orchestrate it all. I will consider adding one or two more pieces of equipment to make it work. I realize there is almost no replacement for more voices and this is a difficult undertaking.
* 6 fulltime auxiliary channels

Thanks for reading this far

TC, Eventide and a maybe one other make acceptable vocal processors that allow for some pitch shifting, delay, etc.  They can be made to sound really bad in the wrog hands.  The TC is probably the cheapest bet.  Just remember that in a live situation, any ambient noise from the band could bleed into the vocal mics and be pitch shifted and delayed as well.

I don't think the units listed are going to give you satisfying results.

TC Helicon voice doubler may help your situation. I have never used the unit but I am a little weary on its affectiveness. It's going to be one of those where if you use it right and you spend alot of time perfecting settings it will probably sound great. However I am betting that if you just hook it up and go you are going to cause more problems than you solve with it.

Such effects have always had a synthesized sound to me even in the studio. I'd say save your money and make sure the singers you have are mic'd and rehearsed well. Or take all that money and hire some more singers!  Smile
