    Has anyone had any experience with this? Will it work with a saxaphone? We have a sax player and were thinking that a harmonizer like this could really beef up his sound and give the band the sound of a brass section. For $300 it sounds tempting if it will work.

    Excerpt:

    Here are some rules for the harmonizer.

    1. Close harmonies. Prevents that "sampled" sound
    2. No more than 3 part harmonies. Gets muddy. Besides, how many (for me) tenor saxes can you have at one time and still be clean?
    3. Custom scale/interval set-up are great because you can play solos as though you are a big band horn section! (I used it on tunes like Caldonia.)
    4. Clip-on, close field mics work best in this situation. You don't want to harmonize the band noise.
    5. Use a noise gate!!
    6. MIDI foot pedals for quick changes. My setup for each bank of 5/key when in a blues band: I/IV/V/Thick (5 ms delay w/feedback and reverb/standard sound). The "Thick" sound is the one I mentioned in the Delay section.
