Troubleshooting & Support for DIGITECH VOCALIST LIVE 3

When I use the footswitch to start the harmony midway through a song, my vocals cut out altogether, until I push the footswitch a few times and it may come back on again.

SOURCE: no vocal sound

It sounds like the guitar level input to the unit is too low.

NOTE: With this product you MUST use an amplified or electric guitar that has a preamp within it.

If you have a straight guitar that does not have an amp in it, buy a preamp to first run the guitar through.

SOURCE: distortion on vocal reproduction on

You need to check the actual signal levels to make sure they are within the specs for the unit. The mic input is low impedance. Your mic should be like a Shure SM58 or equivalent. The output is fairly high... up to +14DB which will require you to turn down the trims on a mixer this runs into or set a -20Db pad at the input. I suspect your distortion is from the device output to the mixer input. It is VERY important that the mic does NOT "hear" the speakers as the feedback loop resulting will be mass distortion. The guitar should also not "hear" the mains.

SOURCE: I was using my digitech vocalist live 2 pedal

After using my digitech vocalist live 2 pedal, the next time I used it only the harmony side of it is working. The harmony on/off switch to deactivate the harmonys just switch the selected harmonies on the effects side works as well.The open mike side is dead. Any ideas??

SOURCE: The digitech vocalist live 2 ,the left side button(reverb,enhancer) , activates the right side (harmony) LED's on the circuit board itself are lit up and nothing happens. t

The buttons are probably scanned as a matrix and possibly a circuit board has been cracked causing wrong data to go to the microprocessor in it. It is unlikely this will be a DIY fix so you should contact Digitech for a repair facility.

The amp or pre-amp for the vocals built into the unit is failing when it gets warm. This is a common problem with electronics, that when it cools down cures itself until it warms up again a few seconds later.
The units need repair or replacement.

Distortion on vocal reproduction on Vocalist Live 2. Even with input volume down to minimum a loud vocal performance produces distortion on single voice and harmony output.

Vocalist live 2 problem. power to unit OK , lights up. Guitar output OK. No tuner, no vocal output.


NO power light or audio from Digitech Vocalist 2 live. Check that your power adapter is for 9 Volts AC (not DC like most pedals) and is rated at 1300ma or more. A DC adapter MAY light up the unit but not make it pass audio. Lights can be lit but that is NOT an indication thaat correct power is applied. They likely use the AC input to generate both positive and negative voltage within the unit. The use of a DC adapter will prevent generating one of these required voltages and prevent audio from passing.

I was using my digitech vocalist live 2 pedal during a gig 3 days ago and about 2 songs in, everytime i touched any part of the pedal or pressed the harmony on/off switch to activate the harmonys, the...


Yeah I have an idea... It is likely static electric discharge. At this time of the year we get zapped touching metal things and it also drives electronics nuts... You don't even have to feel it to get zapped.

Try using in your bare feet and see if it fusses... We had a lady vocalist wearing those ugg boots and caused static pops in her microphone... anyway try the test and if it fixes the problem, then look up Staticide spray... You can get it at Amazon.com for example... spray floor in the area you are playing on to kill the static.

The only other thing is to check if wiggling the power input plug causes the problem. Those plugs are notorious for poor connections when they wear.

Hi i have a vocalist live 3.. my harmony button..when i press it, it does not stay on. can someone please help me. it worked earlier but not now, i am not sure if i pressed somehting


To the guy with the vocalist live 3. You need to change the FS (footswitch) setting under setup. It toggles between a true switch and working only when you hold it down.

When i press the harmony effect i have to hold it


Well i hope the latching mechanism isn't busted!

Check/review your parameter settings for your programs. Especially in the Expression Pedal Control areas.

From their site:

--Harmony Footswitch
This footswitch turns the harmonies on or off. While multiple harmonies can be selected within a preset, the HARMONY footswitch activates or deactivates any selected harmonies simultaneously.
When the LED above the HARMONY footswitch is illuminated, the harmonies are on. When the LED is turned off, the harmonies are turned off.

--Note: The settings for FX Footswitch Control, Harmony Footswitch Control and Guitar Sensitivity apply to ALL presets. The setting for the Expression Pedal Control applies to the current preset only. If you modify the Expression Pedal setting and wish to store it you must Store the preset (see page 11 ). When you load another preset, its setting for Expression Pedal Control will take effect.

--To perform a Factory Reset procedure
If you are editing a preset, press the Up or Down footswitch to exit edit mode.
Press and hold the Major/Minor button and then press and release the Store button. The display will read FAC RESET- WILL ERASE ALL YOUR PRESETS... , then STORE=RST.
Press the Store button again to continue with the factory reset. If you don’t want to do the factory reset, just wait 5 seconds, or press almost any other button, to cancel.
