Changing Harmonizer keys on the fly

Recommended Posts

Has anybody discovered a clever way of changing the harmonizer key for a given preset on the fly?  When I'm playing live and the patch I'm using has the harmonizer set to Em but we're playing a song in F minor, how can I change the Harmonizer setting without going into the edit menu? It would suck to have to create like 8 identical patches with a different harmony key for each patch just to accomplish this.  Anybody find a better way?

You can assign any/all of the parameters of the smart harmonizer to the expression pedal. Although you could have more than two setups per patch per harmonizer doing this, realistically you could have two harmonizer setups per patch per harmonizer by setting the min/max values appropriately.

There are actually 12 possible key music can be played in. And to make matters worse, I haven't seen a preset for intelligent harmony that left room for an expression pedal.

The key is the first parameter of the FX for smart harmonizer. bend or squat down, put on your glasses or magnifier, navigate curser,, double click "enter", turn the first knob till it is in key, double click "enter" to exit. Remove glasses.

It'l revert back to the pre saved key when you bank up or down, Which can be handy if your snger can only sing in G

I was trying to be funny above but that is how I do it and it only takes a moment.

 

It would be good if say the tap tempo footswitch or other could be set to scroll the "key" settings.

The "Hotel California" harmony parts change from B-Harmonic-Minor 2 A-Major and back again. Attaching demo patch, where the smart harmony params (key+scale) r assigned 2 the max 'n min values of the exp pedal.

 

Other similar examples : "We are an American band" attached demo patch harmony solo (changing from D-Major 2 C-Major) , "Highwaystar",etc.
