Question about Digi-Tech Digitech Vocalist Live 4 Harmonizer

2 Answers

Digitech Vocalist Live 4 blead through

I'm using a Rodes NT1-A mic, a Gibson SG electric guitar, with headphones and I can hear the gibson being picked up and going through tne harmonies when I turn them on. I thought it was internal at first but it looks like the mic is picking up the strings on the electric. It's not plugged in to anything but Vocalist Live 4. I'm going to experiment on moving the mic around. Any sugestions as to what type of mic would work? Sounds like a few others have had this problem too. Some say they are using an acoustic guitar! How do they not have that problem?

I'm having a similar problem with my Sterling audio ST-55 mic and a acoustic guitar. I regenerates the signal and sounds like it's under water. I turned down the mic input knob on the back of the unit until I got a clean sound. The only down downside to this is you have to practically eat the mic.
As for solution #1... Another mic choice will do the trick. But the other technique with putting a wall between your guitar and mic doesn't sound like it would work if you are sitting in front of your digital recorder with a mic in front of you and a guitar in you lap.

You need a directional microphone, and then it needs to be pointed away from the guitar. Another technique would be to provide some acoustic insulation between the mic and the guitar, like a wall or a partition like what is used to set up office cubicles.

Gibson serial number check


Gibson 1961-1969 Custom SG reissues since 1997
YYRRRM
Y is the production year
RRR(R) indicates the guitar's place in production for that year.
M is the model being reissued
Reissue model codes:
1= SG Custom and Special
2= SG Standard
3= 1963 Firebird 1
4= 1964 Firebird III
5= 1965 Firebird V & VII
8= 1968 Les Paul Custom
So I think 737582 would mean the guitar was the 758th Custom SG Standard built in 1973. See this... http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Support/SerialNumberSearch/Default.aspx

No mic coming though on vocalist live 4


Sounds like the mic you are using requires "Phantom Power." This means, you will likely have to purchase an external unit for this power (+48V) power to the unit. I use a Behringer Ultra-Voice Pro for mine. Works great!! You can find these on Ebay at a steal!

I have a 1966, 1969 Gibson Guitar. Serial # 83272012. How much is it worth? What model? Confirm year? etc.?


According to Gibson's website, your guitar is a 1983 model year guitar made on the 272nd day, in the Kalamazoo plant. If what you have here is a pic of the actual guitar, it is a Gibson SG. How much it's worth is determined by the condition it is in, the rarity of the model, and much more than can be said without a close inspection.

Here is a link to the Gibson website:
