With the PS-6, you can render complex harmony voicings beautifully, naturally, and easily. 3-Voice Harmony, Detune, and Pitch-Shift The PS-6 can generate two or three voices, such as direct/third/fifth, in each of the following modes: Pitch Shifter, Detune, and Harmony.
This will add rich depth to your guitar sound.
Detune broadens the sound in a natural way, as the PS-6 allows 3-voice detuning with slightly raised and lowered pitch added to the direct signal.
Voices can also be pitch-shifted one octave up and a fifth below your note – great for arpeggio-style playing, for example.
