Re: OT: harmonizer control

Michael, what Nils does live with his TC G-Force (believe it or not) is 
patching 2 different values or more for the 2 voices of the pitch 
shifters...so when he moves his pedal he changes chords. That processor 
allows him only a few preset changes...while an Eventide would allow an 
to preset a control table of up to 11 shifting voices with 50 steps each, 
think 50 chords with a max. of 11+1 dry voices...well, this is power!!!
I recently saw him here in Italy and did an interview with his gtr player, 
Eivind Aarset...cool band...absolutely brilliant...top 5 in the world!!!   
Happy new Year...Italo
