Live vocal fx - when the band is using fx pedals onstage

Hi Robb, and thx a lot for doing this! How do you handle vocal fx when the singer is using fx pedals onstage to process their sound? Do you prefer a split wet/dry signal mix?

If you have encountered this, could you elaborate/educate?

Hi Meriphew
I have encountered this. Used to have a couple of Kaoss pads inserted on the vocals. Honest answer is I hated it. I tried to use my powers of persuasion to let me put the fx on the singers vocal. It felt sometimes like just a feedback generator. I y split the send into two channels and think I used a multi band compressor to control the random sounds generated to at least some kind of degree.
On MA at the moment the Vocal mic of 3D also controls the vocoder. I have them on separate channels and make sure via LTC programming that the vocal mic is never open when he's using it to control vocoder. That would be a sacking offence I think :-)
