Topic: Effects Rookie Looking to Make My Horn a Little Saxier
I play sax in a cover band. Pretty simple set up. Plug the mic into the board and play.
I’ve been wanting to do something a little different and have been toying with some ideas. My research has brought me to the possibility of getting a vocal effects pedal. Both from an ease of connectivity perspective and for what they can do. I have basically no knowledge about this type of equipment other than what I've been researching the past few days. I like the idea of harmonies, octaves, chorus sounds, etc to help me at times sound bigger or different. So I was looking at the Harmony G-XT as an option.
Is it necessary to have another instrument coming through the pedal (guitar in this case) to achieve the correct results with some of the effects. For example, major vs. minor chords, etc. Would a possible solution be to take the lead or rhythm guitar through the pedal and then into his own pedal/amp rig? Would this change his sound at all? I'm guessing this is what a non playing vocalist does when using one?
I’m open to other suggestions too around equipment I might be able to use or the best way to use something like the G-XT and not create any sound issues for my band (feedback, etc). Is there a place where I can go to learn about the proper way to set something like this up?
