    Default TC Helicon Harmony Singer Pedal

    Maybe a long shot, but does anyone have any experience with one of these?

    Here is a demo video.

    Seems pretty cool. However, most demos I am seeing feature live performances. My intended use would be for home recording, using Audacity and an interface box.

    I typically put down a guitar track, then a separate vocal track. I am a bit confused as to whether I would have to play another guitar accompaniment with the vocal, as that seems to be how the contraption figures out the harmonies to sing.

    However, I would not want to record the guitar accompaniment to the vocals, and I am trying to figure out if that would work. In the demo, I am not hearing ukulele harmonies, is that just because it's further from the mic?

    I wonder if I could plug in the Audacity guitar track, instead of a guitar, and it could figure out the harmonies from that?

    Hopefully that makes sense. There are also other seemingly similar products out there, if anyone has a recommendation.

    Thanks!

    If nobody here has an answer for you the reviews and Q&A's on Amazon for the units appear to have a few people asking similar questions. I've seen these in use for a few years and it's always been something I wanted to mess around with but haven't. Let us know how it turns out.

    Mike -- on Bass Forum, someone has suggested: "Harmony pedals such as you mention are really for live performance. You would be better served by get a vocal harmony plug in. Many to choose from. Search YouTube" and provides this link: https://youtu.be/7nuI4FxWpNM. Haven't had a chance to review it yet.

    OK, I was able to create the attached using Audacity. Duplicated an existing vocal track and then used the 'Change Pitch' function. So I guess I just saved $200!
