Compact harmonizer?
« on: Time Format »

I'm thinking of maybe a POG, not the big semi-programmable one, but more like the small one. I think Mastodon often use it.
So, not some huge programmable thingy for doing pitch shift, but merely to enrich the tonal spectrum.

Hey Sinn,

    The POG is a type of harmonizer, but it produces more lo-fi synth/organ type of effects with the guitar. Is that what you are looking for, or is it more of a pitch shift kind of effect?

It's more the harmonizer type of effect I'm looking for. I think the POG might be the right thang for me, judging from Mastodon's Crack the Skye album.
I have it in spades in my TSR-24S, where I use multiple 12-cent harmonizers to build a very rich tone, but I'm thinking of doing away with all that programming to get back to more of a.. mmnn.. guitar sound, so..

Anyways, will check out the PS-6 thingy as well.

Yes, I've done that too with my two Pitchtraqs, (set one +12 cents, the other -12 cents for a lush Chorus effect).

When it comes to pitch shifting/harmonizer effects, I'm more of a purist myself, meaning I would rather keep the original guitar tone with it's pitch change, rather than have it sound like some other kind of instrument simulation. IMHO, nothing else can come close to Eventide for Pitch Change, so I would recommend the Pitch Factor, which will do that plus a lot more if you want it to.

Yeah, I know of the various Eventide pedals, very neat stuff. Likewise know about the Pitchtraq.
I agree about keeping the real guitar tone, which is why I was thinking of the POG, which, IMHO, might be the best way of having some additional harmonics added but still ending up with a natural tone.

Anyways.. having looked into this a Bit more, I've decided to keep my Digitech TST-24S.
It'll sell for next to nothing, and shopping pedals will cost a whole lot more, likely without buying me a better solution - the TSR was sooo wanted off the market by the Harmons, because it was too close to an Eventide 7000.
I'll just stick with the programming, and have it all available - should I need it ;)

Same thing for the analog reverb, which I've now also researched.

Harman owns Lexicon now, as well as DOD, Digitech, and dbx.

   That's why your Vortex is only 10 cm deep, just like my Jam Man. Those are the first Harman/Lexicon releases. I prefer my Lexicon gear pre-Harman era.

  If anything, Harman wanted to get the Eventide H7000 off the market, but Eventide is a hard one to beat when it comes to harmonizers.

Hence why I call them the Hormones. They sit on so many top names and seems to try to control the market.
Maybe they'll soon get Trumped when he runs a Donald on the too-big-to-fail corporate neocon establishment, and makes America Great Again ;)

   If looking at what happened to Lexicon is any indication...
