From the Manufacturer
World’s first processors that automatically generate live multi-part vocal harmony by analyzing guitar chord progressions.
Accurate vocal harmonies even with complicated songs…because only Vocalist Live tracks guitar chords, not your voice.
A surprising number of songs “fool” other harmonizers because these songs just don’t work with a single key/scale setting. In fact, any song that has the same note sung over two different chords (for example, a C sung in the melody over a C maj / F maj chord sequence) is going to confound conventional harmonizers.
Vocalist Live uses breakthrough musIQ™ technology to directly analyze the output of any electric or pre-amplified acoustic guitar (no special MIDI guitars or hex-outputs needed). Then it generates the correct vocal harmony. For example, if you’re singing an A over the chords that are generally found in the key of G, Vocalist will harmonize with a C. But, if you then play an A major, Vocalist will shift to the C#...because like any good harmony singer, it listens to the guitar! With musIQ, forget about the technology – just sing and play! Skip complicated programming and having to analyze each song chord-by-chord; just…
1. Plug in your microphone and guitar;
2. Pick a 3rd or 5th-above or below harmony preset;
3. Sing and play — when you want harmony, just step on the footswitch!
Patent-pending musIQ™ technology combines new Note Detection algorithms with state-of-the-art Harmony Generation. The Note Detection section analyzes complex guitar waveforms and determines which notes in each chord are critical to accurate harmony. This information is then fed to an advanced harmony engine that creates harmonies consistent with both the singer’s melody and the underlying guitar accompaniment. This totally new, musically-intelligent hybrid of traditional chordal and scalic harmony modes means that Vocalist Live musIQ harmonies stay true to not only the overall key and song scale, but also localized variations due to chords that aren’t part of the global key. You’ve never heard anything like it!

I have only used the out of the box presets and in all likelihood will never need to program my own backup sounds but it seems easy enough to do if I want.
So far, my only complaint is that there is no power switch on the thing so I use a switched power strip to achieve the same thing.
I might also like the ability to save and program the device from a computer but that feature is not available so I'll just have to write down any of my own settings if I happen to do that . . .
Overall though, this unit sounds and performs great and is really something you can use out of the box . . . Even my wife and son think it sounds pretty cool . . .
On the good side - I took this thing to an Easter get-together with family. Everyone was amazed! They all had to try it, and it became like Karaoke. I would let them sing and would play with the effects. Even got our little niece to join in. It was a blast.
So even if you're not a professional singer, this can be fun to play with. Similar to Karaoke, everyone will want to try it! Since I'm not a professional guitar player, I haven't used it to it's full potential yet, but as I get better this thing will be a lot of fun I can tell!
Simple as plug an play to start.
For those who like to sing for fun or personal leasure, or for
proffessional sinnger who do individual singing stage performance, this product is for you.
Very easy to operate, 50 presets from factory made you able to choice your vocal harmony taste, and if you have spare time and like to experimenting a bit, this thing offer wide possibility to accomodate your taste by tweaking existing presets and even save it with your own names of set.
So if you play the guitar and do even a simple run up or down the fretboad, you can sing just the one note into the mic and the harmonies will flow with the chords and notes you play. Some of the names of the presets will give you an idea of how the harmonies will sound; CSN sounds like you-know-who, there's one called "Tenors" another "Gospel" etc. As a female singer, I get blown away by hearing my "male back up singers" harmonising away! I've never been very good at hitting the harmony a 3rd *below* the melody. I tend to wobble all over the place when I try to work it out, but this thing does it and it sounds brilliant. As an added bonus, it's also given me a ton more confidence in my own abilities as singer, harmonies or not.
So it still sounds like "you", but with an added flavour and tone with the harmonies. I love doing a load of "what will happen when I try this.." scenarios. Play with some Beatles songs (think "Here there and Everywhere" "If I Fell" and "Rain" and you will get an idea of some of what it can do) Try some Queen harmonies even the Andrews sisters. I fell about laughing when I tried the Chordettes "Mr Sandman!" It's the most fun I've had with any piece of musical hardware in many years.
Most definitely recommended !
Edit April 2010: Been playing with it for quite a few more weeks now and it still amazes me. I've used it in a few of my tunes and it really helps on the overall feel. With these great harmonies, they sound so much more professional. Love it.
It has many great features and options.
I have also found it to make me more creative in my song writing process and is big help to the average person looking for new ways to spice up his/her songs vocally. I also way I can have "back up singers" harmonizing with me without the hours of practice and retakes.
