The DUO BUDDY is a real-time harmony generator but in a stomp-box format for live use. It can take a monophonic audio signal input and automatically generate a single accompanying harmony. However, it does this without the usual 'chipmunk' effect found on other harmonisers.
Intervals for the harmony can be pre-programmed and stored - on stage, all you need do is hit the footswitch when a harmony is required. To assist with this, a variety of preset scales are provided that include major, minor, etc..
A FORMANT control allows you to affect the perceived sex of the harmony and can be adjusted so that it has a feminine or masculine tone.
The rear panel includes not only an input and output but also a separate output for the harmony channel so that it can be balanced, EQ'd and effected on an external mixing console.
With its rugged construction, the DUO BUDDY is an ideal and convenient tool for vocalists performing live on stage. However, it is an equally effective tool in the studio.
