Hardware micro pitch shifter?

I'm looking for a hardware micro pitch shifter that can do the vocal thickening trick that a Eventide H3000 can do, any hardware units out there that can do this under $700? It can be a rackmount effects unit or a stereo guitar pedal.

Hi, I work for Eventide and thought I'd chime in with a suggestion. The H9’s (& PitchFactor) MicroPitch algorithm is a stripped down version of the famous Ultra-Harmonizer MicroPitch algorithm (found on the H3000).

So, this stompbox can do it, but it does not sound identical to the H3000/9000 rackmount version.

One thing you can try is to buy the iOS version of MicroPitch and to run it as a hardware device to test it out before spending the $ on an H9 (or PitchFactor).

Thank you both for the replies. Will the eventide Pitch Factor pedal do this? It has a patch called microshift but I can't find any info about how short you can set the delays.

You can also do a version of this with a Yamaha SPX-90, which you can get dirt cheap these days.

I clicked on this thread to say exactly this. The SPX 90 is still one hell of a tool to have lying around.

I can't recall the minimum pitch shift increments but the Boss SE-50/SE-70 can do effects like this. Obviously not an Eventide but they have their charm.
