Thumbs up looking for a true sounding harmonizer/doubler

looking for a good harmonizer/doubler/pitch transposer. something that would sound close to true harmonizing/doubling rather than an effect. anyone know of any notable units?

also, anyone happen to know what type of harmonizer/doubler george lynch used when playing live?, given his harmonizing/doubling was dubbed on albums i assume he must have had something that sounded close to true harmonizing/doubling when live.

Not sure what George Lynch uses but take a moment to check out the Zoom G2. Great intelligent harmonizer/doubler in it.

No analog units do this. The only effect you can get a-log is an octaver.

IMO the only gear that can do harmonizing that tracks really good from Eventide. Quite pricey but there's really no alternative.

Re: looking for a true sounding harmonizer/doubler

The only possible alternatives are the old IVL units from Digitech. Those are a cut above anything else except Eventide, but still a definite cut below Eventide. They were made in the early 90's, and there were a few units you might be able to score on the bay. I got a studio 5000 for a couple hundred.

IPS33 - the original. 15k frequency response, not such a great unit.
IPS33B - better unit. Very good.
DHP33 - same hardware as the IPS33B
DHP55 - fancier than the 33 units, this has more harmonies & reverb/FX programs. Still the same overall sound quality though.
Studio 5000 - same hardware as the DHP55.

Does the new Zoom G2.1U have the same harmonizer as the Zoom G2?

Thanks for the sound sample!

Don't think it's too advanced... I only used a stock preset. There are 3 parameters to adjust for the harmonized pitch shifter:

Interval (Sixth down, Fifth down, Fourth Down, Third down and the same up for a major scale--Third down and Third up for a minor scale)
Key (all 12)
Mix (0-100%)
