TC-Helicon announce 1.1 firmware update to the automatic tuning and vocoder effects processor 24/03/10
Here's the TC-Helicon press release...
VoiceTone Synth already packs some of the most sought-after vocal processing tools into a convenient and compact pedal. It's become the industry-standard vocal processing pedal for anyone wanting live automatic tuning aka "HardTune" effects, allowing them to replicate sounds from artists like T-Pain, Cher and Kanye West.
VoiceTone Synth has also become a favorite among creative vocalists wanting eerie electronic Vocoder effects, or as a simple yet powerful digital talkbox for guitarists who sing.
Now, with the latest 1.1 firmware update, TC-Helicon has added even more features to this already indispensable and incredibly versatile vocal processor. These include significantly lower latency for the lead voice, a Chromatic mode for scale-free operation, and alternate HardTune settings that allow more natural-sounding pitch correction when required. New features include:
Chromatic mode allows complete vocal freedom with HardTune and voice-to-synth vocoder
Natural pitch correction styles available with HardTune block
Improved instrument vocoder presets for use by guitarist singers
Significantly lower lead voice latency
Improved megaphone styles
MIDI improvements over USB including patch change and channel select for those integrating Synth into their computer-centric electronic music setup.
