TC-Helicon announces the H1, a new VoiceTone Single vocal effects pedal 06/04/11
TC-Helicon tells us that it is offering its renowned vocal harmony to a wider audience with VoiceTone H1 – a two part vocal harmony processor combining NaturalPlay guitar control and key/scale operation to allow vocalists of any musical background to get lush sounding background vocals. TC-Helicon product manager, Tom Lang, has this to say, "There is something addictive and fun about using such a small pedal to instantly produce pro sounding background vocals." Here's the rest of what TC-Helicon has to say...
VoiceTone H1 is the ultimate in simplicity. The NaturalPlay harmony algorithms come directly from TC-Helicon's flagship vocal processor VoiceLive 2, so there is no compromise on sonic quality.
Controlling VoiceTone H1 is truly simple. Singers select from eight voicing combinations, then set harmony mix and choose between guitar control using the guitar pass-thru input or selecting a key and scale. Singers only have to turn their backup vocals on and off during the night using the footswitch or the optional MP-75 Modern Performance Vocal microphone with Mic Control.
Up to four VoiceTone Singles can be connected together with the Singles Connection Kit to form the ultimate custom vocal processing chain. The kit includes a 12V power supply, 3 x DC daisy-chaining connectors, 3 x short XLR cables. VoiceTone H1 features:
Two voices of realistic harmony
Eight pre-authored harmony voicings
Guitar Control in and pass-thru
Studio quality mic-pre with phantom power

Recessed gain knob that prevents accidental bumps on stage
USB for connecting to VoiceSupport for added tips, tricks, support and updates
