Hey all I have been trying to use the Pitchtraq with my mp-2 and a  mixer and I think I would like it for the mp-1 rig instead trying to slim down the mixer.
So I guess my question is. What pitch unit would work good with the mp-2 as in 2 in and 2 out midi as well. Any thoughts would be great thanks Steve.

Hey Steve,

I like the TC electronic G-Major 2 a lot for Pitch-shifting, Harmonizing and stuff. It is a multi-FX-unit, so for just using the Pitch-Functionality it might be overpowered.
It has PC, CC capability and can even use Expression-Pedals for on the Fly-Change.


...hmm, the more I think of the abilites of this unit, the more I want to tinker around with my MP-2 and GMaj2

Methinks you'll be hard pressed finding a Pitchtraq replacement, because it does it in hardware in contrast to others doing it in software, with the resulting latencies. Also, it's pitch shifting has virtually no weird artifacts.
However, this doesn't make the Pitchtraq better per-se; it doesn't do intelligent pitch shifting, par example, and has no MIDI, so..

Hey Steve, I've used a Digitech IPS33 Smart Shift for many years, first with MP1 and later MP2, it's old but does have Midi patch change (although programs limited to 1-99), tracks well and sounds good.  It is mono in but has 2 channels out, each can be a different pitch.  I ran it off 1 Fx send and return down 2 desk channels (L/R) both sent to Quadverb sends 1/2), MP1/2 down 2 channels (L/R) L send 1, R send 2 and both send 3 (to IPS)

I have looked into the ips33 for a while. Im sure it is a good unit. The G major I've heard a lot of talk about I have a opportunity to pick one up locally for $100 usd just waiting for a email back.
If I can find a good deal on the ips33 that could be an option being it has two effect outputs and is midi.

I second the IPS33.  However it sucks that it always starts at preset number one.

I also have the rocktron Intellipitch which is truly awesome, bad rare as anything!  Super rare in fact.  Same guys who did the eventide did the Intellipitch.

Hey Steve, not sure if you've tripped over this post (http://adadepot.com/index.php?topic=1090.0) The attached mp3 (last guitar solo) is MP1 with IPS33.  I think the IPS patch I used was a minor 3rd (key set Gm (smart shift :thumb-up: )), the same one I used for Highway Star solo (actually, I programed all the 2nd guitar Highway Star harmonies into the IPS, but there was no way I could change them fast enough  :facepalm: (you could do it with a sequencer just changing midi patches :dunno: ), so in the end I just went with the minor 3rd, (also works for Smoke on the water (for the most part)), and also this track as it's a Gm 3/4 blues thingy (I've never heard the original song (JB Lenuior), just made up my own parts)....
