But PS-5 is the best cheap intelligent harmonizer you’re gonna find.

ps-3 mode 7 is "post rock" heaven if your play style accommodates it. I have a digiverb on gated setting pre-fuzz, and ps-3 post-fuzz (& a bunch of other stuff to be sure). I keep the settings around noon, & just shift slightly brighter.

Ok, Tha ks for the answers. How about the output? Does the clean signal lose somethin in the Pitch fork or in the Boss PS-5?

Not sure about the answer to the last question (though I previously owned the PS-2/3/5), but wondering if anyone knows what the PS-2 trimpots do.

Looking at the schematic it seems they are fine tuners for the pitch, probably not worth messing with

PS2 has a smooth sweep on the pitch shift. Back when it came out Boss intended users to plug a tuner into the tuner out, which was just a straight oscillator feed, in order to set the pitch they wanted. The trims are factory set to make the pitch accurate at the mid point and either end of the sweep.

Glad that I could smell the necrosis. I'm actually awaiting the arrival of a PS-2. Looking back over this thread was a blast from the past, I mentioned deciding to go for a vintage eventide. Well I subsequently sold off all my pedals and RE-150 and more and went with an Orvilleinstead, which I love but I recently went on a small scale Boss bender, for super simple spot filling effects. PS-2 was the last I'll be buying anytime soon, but I still wants to get a PS-3, CE-2w, MZ-2, and a handful of drives/dirt, would like an FZ, and wouldn't mind a PS-5 even for that matter. Oh yeah, really curious about the HF-2....shit, I have a problem.

My PS-5 coexisted for a while with an Eclipse and a DSP-7000 (and a Digitech IPS-33b). Actually survived past the Eclipse flip. An ILFer’s need was greater, so I traded it, but would gladly welcome one back. Good and easy to use pedal.

How is the ips? I glanced at it earlier today looking at what pitch shifters are available for the big girls who have grown out of pedals. Just figured it could be good cause hey the whammy always sounded cool

The PS-2 and eventual PS-3 and PS-5 will actually be to replace an Eclipse. I needed more than the 2 channels it offered in the end and well, when It came to bus processing, the eclipse couldn't hold a candle to the Orville's reverbs. Eclipse was suppose to be a "portable" orville for me, but it wasn't comfortable to take it out of the house. Now I load up 2-3 boss pedals into my backpack and head right on out. Funny how things go, when I joined ILF the first thing I wanted to do was dump all my Boss.

It does a few things beyond pitch and detune tricks, but those are the strong suit. The string modeler is excellent whatever it’s doing. Cool thing about the whammy mode is that you get a second voice so you can do detuned whammy, which is pretty cool. It’s got a sound to it that keeps me in it. But I’m bad about hoarding harmonizers. I’m currently down to four intelligent harmonizers (I.e. does scale degrees) along with a few sundry dim pitch shifters.

From what I gather the DHP-33 is the same algorithm with an improved user interface, so that may be a better option. I have kept eyes on the four voice DHP-55 because, although forum chatter has it that it sounds worse, the manual makes it plain that it is a deeply powerful thing and at the same time pretty accessible to tweak and customize.
