Steve Vai and the Eventide Harmonizer H3000

#1 Post by Lazarus Pit » Sun Sep 23, 2012 5:40 pm

Can anyone tell me how Steve Vai uses the Eventide Harmonizer H3000 for recording? Also, what presets did he favor on his recordings previous to the presets he set up ( for example, Passion and Warfare, other than the special effects on Ballerina 12/24 and Alien Love Kiss etc.) ? Does (did) he use the Eventide for harmonies or recordings or does he do them strictly by hand? Simply, how is this device featured on his recordings?

Thank you in advance.

The Harmonizer is a little confusing by name...

while it's called a HARMONIZER its a full Multifx processor- like a G-Force/G-Major/etc

so it does more than harmonies/pitch shifting stuff

I think he uses it in his effects loop- some of the settings he uses are factory presets/others he tweaked himself

i do think if you want one there's better units out there today

like the eventide pedals (the pitch one has all the same stuff- even the same ballerina setting)
or a tc electronic multi effect (gforce or gmajor2)

an axe fx can do it all too

Thanks for your response, Jeries, however I am specifically interested in getting information about the Eventide Harmonizer H3000 (possibly SE), regarding Steve's preset choices when he did use this specific unit.

Thanks again.
