    So I want to turn a single Trumpet or Sax into a 3 piece Horn section at the gig. Mostly Stabs and staccato lines if you can picture that.

    My understanding is that most vocal processors will glitch-out if the pitch is too high.

    Does anybody have any experience with this situation?

    Could you recommend a pedal or processor that does a decent job for not too much money ($500 or less).

    I can already add reverb, delay, and slight detune at the board, but I'm looking for octave and possibly intelligent pitch harmony. Ideally it would easily interface with a mic and be foot-switchable...

    Thanks in advance,
    Rock on'

    I don't play horn, and don't know anyone who uses such an effect in that way, but there might be a demo video for one of the vocal harmony pedals like from DigiTech or TC Helicon.

    It's outside of my experience, but maybe @DigiTechRep might have some knowledge.

    I don't know of any videos demonstrating the Vocalist Live Harmony with horns, but I've spoken with quite a few horn players that use them. I think I remember a video of a guy using the Vocal 300 with a horn, let me see what I can find...

    Here are a few videos of sax with harmony processors.
