Re: Troubles recording vocals through bass octave effect

Sanne, you my hero!  Have you seen my arrangement of your arrangement of "Fields of Barley" by Sting?  I did it after I participated in a Native American sweat lodge ceremony, so its partly inspired by Native American song, and mostly improvisatorial.  

Listen to "We Will Walk (in the Fields of Gold)"


I think I'll look for a sub-harmonic synth or use the MDA-VST plug-in now, rather than a Chili Dog.

Any sound samples?  I don't think the POD HD synths will work well.  They are just to glitchy even with just vocals.  The bass octaver has a good bottom end, but is muddy.  The synth route really intrigues me, but without a reference tone to shoo for, who the hell knows what I need, lol.

There appears to be nothing like the DBX or Peavey in stompbox format...that is something I would need for live use.

I cannot help you with your current technical problem, but I do have a lot of experience with "octaving" my voice and vocal percussion. Instead of using an octaver, you could try to use a subharmonic synth. The results actually are stunning and way better than an guitar octaver.

Good luck,

Also,  a few years back when Elliot Smith died,  my wife and I helped out his estate
by buying a one rack hardware suboctave generator that works really
well live for vocals.

It's buried in a rack I'm not using currently, but I think it was an earlier Peavey model.
