So, im looking at getting an eventide harmonizer H3000.
Been working for my parents alot, started school holidays today, and have applied for a job at my local guitar shop. so therefore i have an income. soon able to afford one. (in the 1000 and less category)

i was looking at an H3000 Ultra, but the audio in and out are XLR connections?

so if i bought it, (i know it has a switch for 110-230 volts) would i just need to plugin in female XLR - 1 1/4 inch connections?

would this work? = http://images.miretail.com/products/optionLarge/Horizon/246954.jpg

any way, sorry for going on, but im a tad confused, but i hear these sound brilliant!
love to hear it with my mark iv!

Thanks

yeah - the voltage could be easily adapted but the cables has to be xlr - your right.
great unit - i would propose to get an H3000D/SX or H3000D/SE.

all the best

sweet, sounds perfect!
only problem, is that the mark iv is a beast! i have loads of trouble controlling it at low volumes even!
but these units look like tanks! anyone have sounds clips at all? cant find any.

Have you considered getting the Eventide Pitch Factor instead? It's way smaller and probably has way more CPU power and higher signal fidelity. You may not be able to dig as deep into the settings when configuring your own patches but unless you're extremely into that kind of stuff I'd say the PF has pretty much everything covered (including some presets based on the H3000).

+1000 on the Pitchfactor. For a guitarist, these are the way to go. If you did go the h3000 route you would also need a midi footcontroller to switch presets....

I used the H3000 Ultra for years, great unit. I would seriously consider the AxeFx Ultra. You can do many of the same things FX wise (even Crystal Echos and intelligent pitch shifting). The AxeFx has the added benefits of be a great direct recording device with awesome amp sims and it's way easier to program. Also the lag when you change presets on the Eventide is beyond brutal :)

The Eventide is however a wicked unit.

I do have the pitchfactor... cost me about $600 new. I don't use it as much as I want as I tend to play a lot of fast, progressive rock, and sometimes those harmonizing notes come out 'sour' unless you keep them low in the mix. Still a great unit, although I can't compare it to other Eventide products. Apparently, they took the best of their classic big units and put it into the PitchFactor floor pedal. Around 50 pre-sets, I believe, and you can change or save as desired.

Get whatever you want. I'm simply giving my opinion for others on the board not wanting to spend the money but want a less expensive alternative.
