The Helix is good but the pitch based stuff is bloody awful.

For vocal harmonies you would be better getting the audience to help.

What is this 'audience' you speak of?

I wish I knew......

Anyway a couple of days reading manuals and reviews plus this thread seem to have suppressed the GAS, temporarily at least, so thanks everybody, I'll see what I can do with what I have (to which end I have bought a couple of metres of real 'Velcro" and have some posh melamine faced plywood in the garage) :thumbup:

A quick update, The acoustic pedalboard now has The Tone Dexter, into a standard sized TC Flashback Delay (more sophisticated than the Mooer) and the TC DittoJam X2.

The electric board has the other DittoJam X2 added.

WRT to the DittoJam X2, it does track the drums tempo very well as long as it has a strong signal, feeding a drum machine into it works a treat, stomping the floor alongside less so. And it does very weird things if you run in sync mode without a decent sync input (random, huge tempo changes). It has three modes, 'BeatSense' mode (where tempo tracks the sync input), practice (where tempo is adjustable but doesn't need continuous sync input, great for slowing stuff down for practice) and 'Classic' (normal loop mode), switching between modes is, thankfully, easy with the foot switches. Definitely think it'll be a keeper. Best deal by a long way (shipped to the UK) is from Thomann where it's £114 instead of £180-200.
