Do any of you have experience working with the Vocal Pro 300? I purchased one but honestly have not had the chance to sit down and learn all about it. I just found a few patch settings on their website. If you have any tips and useful infomation please share!
I actually like the factory presets, but I know that I can get a lot more out of it!
I find myself using primarily two patches.
1) a slap back for some solos
2) baritone emulation.
I play tenor and this adds an octave down to my normal sound which is real good to pretend you are a horn section on funky stuff. I have a TC Electronics 'Hall of Fame' reverb pedal also after the vocal 300 so I can turn it on / off independently (I usually tell the guy at the board to keep my reverb off or very low). The reverb it offers is superior to the 300. For the octave down funky stuff keep the reverb off.
I have yet to get the auto-wah to work with the right sensitivity in a live loud scenario, but I'm sure it's possible. My tenor is too loud for the default settings and the settings I've tried wanted to feed back when used live.
I suggest you find two or three settings and customize them to your needs and put them right up front. You don't want to be searching around during a performance and most of those other settings will just be a distraction in most performance situations.
When just jamming with friends, (or enemies) that's when I pull out the goat or robot sounds :0
