Recommended vocal processor for a cappella octavising

Postby Neil.Barton » Mon Apr 14, 2014 3:31 am

I'm in the market to buy a vocal processor to add an octave down to the bass in our five piece a cappella band.
It doesn't need to be fancy, just to give us a bit more depth down at E2 and below where our bass (me) doesn't have so much power.
Anyone got any experience or advice to offer?

Leading candidate so far is TC Helicon Voicetone D1, which seems simple and affordable. And TC Helicon have a good name.
Alternates are:
- Digitech Vocal 300
- EHX Voicebox
- Boss VE-20

I've found some threads which recommend pedals designed primarily for guitar, like the Boss OC-3 or the EBS Octabass.
Most of these threads were quite old, 2008 or so, so I'm wondering if the vocal processor pedals are newer and a better way to go?

Thanks in advance.
