I find it hard to get a good usable sound with this effect.
The effect is way to dynamic. When the overall sound is still
Quite low, I get occasional huge volume spikes and terrible
Feedback with some vowels. At the same time I still don't get
A clear, pronounced vocoder effect. Not usable at all.
I use a Variax 700 electric, connected with the VDIi cable and
A Sure SM Beta on the XLR input. Input selector 1 on Guitar/
Variax and input 2 on Same.
Tried it with only the vocoder effect in the chain and also with an
Amp in front or after. Does the addition of an amp model make any
relevant contributions to the tone at all?
I read somewhere that producing a fairly loud vocal signal
Makes a lot of difference. Is this true? And how about the tone/pitch
Of the vocal? Does that make any difference?
Would love to know how to make good use of this effect, also
In live situations! The feedback and occasional clipping with
Some vowels is just not ok, the way I use it now.
