Thanks Spike , sounds like it could be the way to go.Yes @Taz is the man that's really good stuff.
I got a VE-20 earlier this year. I'm knocked out with it, it's simple to use, very solid box, the harmony settings are great, very realistic.
I'm a click and go person not really interested in tweaking. I haven't used it live as yet but if all you need is harmony plus maybe a bit of chorus and effects it'll do the job out the box.
In the old days I used a Lexicon MPX 100. I don't know the Helicon box, it is more expensive. I've never tried it.
From me a thumbs for the VE-20, it's a solid box - good bang for the buck.
I only use it in a small covers band, but often stick in two and three part harmonies, often using the octave down for the bari part, (it’s not worth hauling my bari to gigs like theses.) Some times, because the venues are so small, it’s not worth putting a mic up for me but then the horn sounds dead. What you can do with the VL3 is remove the lead instrument and just play the effects. Now that’s funky!Thanks Taz, what you've put together is very impressive. I don't think I would go that deep into things. Since our Trombone/Trumpet player is no longer with the band and I'm now the only horn player we've been using keyboards to cover things. I thought the pedal board might work but I couldn't get on with it. Have you used the Voice Live 3 to get a section sound for gigs ?
