External Hardware Harmonizers Automated

Post by dawman » Mon Mar 05, 2018 5:54 pm

You’ll need a pair of cheap TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch units, app. 250 used on eBay.
And dNa’s Free MIDI Switching device.

On your Harmonizers (1 for each vocalist) each preset on those units should correlate with a song.
In this way each song can have various harmonies using smart scales, hard tune or Vocoder via MIDI Notes from keys.

On the dNa MIDI Switcher assign CCs to each pad. I use 5 for each Harmonizer.
Upper row is the Lead vocalists Harmonizer, the bottom row for the background vocalist.

I hate singing, I suck, so for 30 years I automate vocal FX to keep these whiny singers off my ass.
Started with the Alesis MultiFX back in ‘85, then the Alesis Q20/Lexicon PCM91/42.
Then TC Fireworx, and now TC Helicon as the units are really complete vocal processing.
Surprised how good the delay and verbs are.

It’s nice having Scopes MIDI Out to add extra controls via MIDI.
TC and others all have proprietary pedals costing money that cannot come close to Scopes MIDI Strength.

dNa allows me to send it a program change message, which in turn can send out 10 CC#’s (Pads) to click off and on FX where I can add harmonies, a keyboard controlled Vocoder, lo-if, doubler, reverb, modulation Fox, delays.

Just added a MIDI Solutions Merge so my Physis K4 can send prgm. Chang. Messages directly to the unit too.
I should demo these units for TC @ NAMM.
Show twthem how we do it with Scope on the big jobs...... :lol:
