TC-Helicon announce availability of VoiceTone vocal effects pedals 20/08/07
TC-Helicon tell us that their VoiceTone vocal effects pedals which were officially unveiled at this yearâ€™s Frankfurt Messe, are now shipping.
VoiceTone pedals were developed to give vocalists the ability to control their tone the same way guitarists do through stomp boxes and multi-effects rack units. The first two pedals in the line are VoiceTone Create, a multi-effects pedal, and VoiceTone Correct, a pitch correction and adaptive EQ/dynamics pedal.
VoiceTone Create is a studio quality multi-effects pedal for voice that includes 99 preset combinations of reverb, tap tempo delay, thickening/microtuning, distortion and even telephone/megaphone effects. TC say that the straightforward controls, A/B effects switching and simple radio button preset selections are easy for singers to use while performing. The fully produced vocal mix can be selected by effect type or music genre to facilitate creative operation.
VoiceTone Correct combines pitch correction with adaptive tone and dynamic shaping in a single pedal. Effects include auto-chromatic pitch correction, an adjustable auto-smooth compression, de-essing and multiband auto-shape EQ to dynamically sweeten raw mic sounds.
TC-Helicon tell us that the adaptive algorithms they have developed help generate a natural and intelligible vocal tone by compensating for microphone type and technique.
The new single control pitch correction helps singers sing more in tune. The algorithm has been developed using the same physiological principles that allow a metronome to help musicians play in time. VoiceTone Correct also includes a warmth setting for rich lows on deep voices.
Each VoiceTone pedal features a studio quality mic preamp with phantom power, XLR mic level I/O, complete metal construction and superior audio quality from input to output. Pricing and Availability:
VoiceTone Correct and VoiceTone Create each retail at EUR 230 excl. VAT and at GBP 155 excl. VAT.
