Anyone Using the Digitech Vocalist

Miles, Severe Tech Guru and Master of the Purple Marching Flatulator (Sousaphone) sent me a file by Imogene Heap last night that I'm pretty sure is using a Digitech Vocalist or an earlier version. Have any of you used them and if so, whaddya tink? It sounded very cool. And supposedly the new one can track either an acoustic or electric guitar! And they're pretty cheap. I wonder....

I also have the PODxt Live and love it, yes, through speakers or a PA! Through headphones it sounds like what would result if I took a good guitar amp, and stuck my head right up next to it, which, I guess is what they did in the modeling process. Anyway, check out the Line6 forum for the PODs, called Channel 6. Every so often a thread gets started where experienced users start uploading their preset bundles. A great way to really learn what the XTl is capable of.

I have it. Not a huge fan. Its ok for some stuff, but it munches cpu like crazy. I just got a Pod LiveXT which I like very, very much. On headphones it sounds ok, but through my Mackie 450's, it sounds positively HUGE.
