    I could use one of these actually.

    The Korg arrangers have this voicelive tech built in (plug your mike in and go). I've used it to be the backup chorus.

    I think these vocal FX pedals are great if you're doing your own sound. Every live sound engineer that has talked about them with me hates them, though.

    I worked with a guy that had this thing down. Said it took him a few years but he could do all the vox and backup pretty convincingly.
    In this test it's funny only one of the samples references floyd.

    I had something similar when I was gigging. Came in real handy for covering vox for an 80s cover band.

    I agree with the engineers, though - they are difficult to record well. It's far easier to use a VST for vox effects.

    The harmony/echo 2 sounded like it had potential for musicality.
    I didnt like the others as much, but might if scoring a soundtrack, or into rougher voiced music.

    The main engineer that I know that hates them (he's talked about them multiple times), pointed to lower quality or weird gain staging even when you weren't using a big effect. Additionally (and I've witnessed this myself), they're more prone to feedback. I think a lot of that can be addressed if you know how to use the gear properly.

    His other point is now that digital boards like the X32 series are so affordable, sound engineers can easily add effects and dial them in properly. Now, I'd limit that to delay and reverb, though. The benefit of these pedals is doing some unique tone for a section of a song that I'd never expect a sound engineer to cover unless he tours with you and you play that song consistently and you've asked him to help you out with it.
