Effects digitech vocal 300

At last I have finally got the Digitech vocal 300 effects peddle Ive been wanting to buy for months (ordered it yesterday lunch time' it arrived mid morning today.
Now all I have to do is learn to program in my own settings, which I have been told is relatively straight forward once you know your way around.
however if anyone has any hints or tips, or settings they have come across that work, then I would be most grateful.

Zoot - I started from the settings in this SOTW thread, then just fiddled around till I found something that suited me - or was it when I got bored?

If you are playing it at gigs it can sound completely different to the settings that were so good in your garage though. And beware the feedback - I use mine with the gain at about 25%. Any more and it's squeeladelica.......

well i have just been to my first band practice using the afore mentioned peddle and all in all i was very pleased with it.
as Dooce said there was a bit of an issue with feedback but after some tweaking this was resolved also some of the patches need some alteration to get the best out of them.
but i think this will be sorted as i get more used to programing the peddle,thanks to Dooce, Nick Wyver, Young Col, Chris and anyone else i may have failed to mention for their help and advice.

do any of the vocal 300 owners "out there" have a working setup for a minor third down?
i have found a patch that works for a fourth stack and a fourth down but am struggling a bit with a minor third

Hello Nick.
Maybe i am over complicating things?, i found some settings posted by Camthecat which were to take you from 5th above to 4th below
which required the pitch to be altered from 12 to 7 is this the wrong way to do it? is there a simpler way?

Say you're using 4th below. Press select and keep prodding it until you get to the effects bit. Twiddle the midrange knob to alter the shift from -5 (4th below) to -3 (min 3rd below). Press store and change the name of the effect. Press store twice more to store it. If you want to keep 4th below then make a note of all the settings and apply them to a spare patch with the change in pitch shift from -5 to -3.

Good luck.

Thanks Nick i will get right on it, from what you said it seems i was taking a very convoluted route but then i had only just got used using a video recorder and they brought out sky plus!

Have you got the manual? You can download it off the net; that's how I got mine but can't remember where. Have a look at the Digitech site.

Hello Dooce.
yes i got a manual with it, but it is very slim on details and doesn't go anyway towards explaining how to do anything in depth.
and for a simple soul like me who is not used to programing it is quite a learning curve.
