So far I like the specs and reviews on the Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork and am wondering if anyone here owns or has tried this pedal? <br /> The reviews are fairly glowing and the ability to add an controller pedal for real-time changes is intriguing.<br /> I need a harmonic pedal and so far, this one has garnered my thoughts as to how it performs and tracks the signal from guitars and even some vocal applications. But I'm not intending on using this pedal for that reason, but it was nice to hear that it did it and was convincing enough to use for recording, I don't think a live application would be any good. <br /> My Thanks in advance, Woody

Are you looking for an "intelligent" harmonizer pedal? If so, the only relatively affordable pedal out there right now is the Boss PS-6.<br /> <br /> The Pitchfork won't provide for dual or triple guitar lead harmonies that follow the pitch in the selected key.<br /> <br /> TC Electronic has a new harmonizer pedal coming out soon.

I'll stay tuned for the new release of the TC pedal but for the most part, I'm looking for a decent harmony pedal with maybe an octave above/below or programmable 3/5th's but the idea of being able to add the expression pedal seemed like a good point!<br /> I do like the TC Harmonizer but mostly trying to keep it basic with realistic tone and not too polyphonic.

I have a Pitch Fork.<br /> <br /> It's pretty cool, but I will admit that I haven't used it in a while.<br /> <br />

I had a vocal harmonizer that used the guitar chord being played to find the right harmony. I don't know how a guitar harmonizer could choose the correct harmony note if there was no reference chord.

It just adds the other notes according to the note that's played.<br /> So if I play a C note, if I select the type of harmonic note on the pedal, it corresponds with a note that is programmed on the pedal. 3rd, 5th, octave usually. So it follows me around as I play any note, where the Harmonizer is usually programmed to play those harmonic notes within the chords given. <br /> The one I'm interested in is more basic and doesn't use the intelligent method like the Vocal Harmonizer. If that makes any better sense of what I'm trying to say. <br /> Most harmonic pedals use the octave up or down, but some of the newer ones can be programmed to add the type of pitch I want to hear versus an entire harmony root of the songs key.<br /> That's about the best I can explain it. <br /> Best regards, Woody
