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.

You have to play the guitar to make the vocals work.

The vocal cuts out completely from time to time. Comes back after a while but keeps cutting out at intervals. Have two of these and both do it. Is it my set up, is it overload in some way. Guitar ok. Use...


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.

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!

Does anyone have schematics for (any) vocal harmonizers.


The circuitry is quite complex inside these units and-so If it's a broken wire then MAYBE you could repair it, but if it's one of the multitude of 10 to 40 pinned surface-mounted IC's...well, good luck.

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.


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.

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.

After a few minutes of use, there is clipping and sound cutting out with the guitar through. Vocal and harmony are fine. I tried using different guitar cords, different guitars, different amps to no avail....


Hi,

I know you hate this answer, but it needs to be repaired. It has a circuit board inside, and there's really not a work-around. But it is broken. I totally understand about not wanting to send your gear out, especially if it's a pedal board you have set just right, and are completely usweed to using. You'll be a lot happier with it if you get it fixed though. Or find another one on eBay. I sold all me Digitech pedals when I got my Pod - but that's just me, I use a lot of distortions and it fit the bill better for me. I used Digitech pedals for about 20 years and thought I would hate anything else.

Take care.

I need to output guitar and vocal separately. No matter how I hook it up guitar comes thru the vocal channel


Hi there. Use the "pan" pots to assign the guitar to left channel and all other pans to right channel. Also, turn all effects off or down all the way. (Effects return all the way down.
Thanks

Digitech Vocalist Live 4 blead through


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.
