Complete vocal effects package and mic channel for recording and live use 14/09/11
TC-Helicon tell us that the new VoiceLive Rack is based on the effects engine that also powers units like VoiceLive Touch and VoiceLive 2. They say that this basically means that all imaginable types of effects for vocals are covered: µMod (detune, chorus, flange), Echo & Delay, Reverb, Harmony, HardTune & Correction, Doubling, Transducer (distortion & megaphone), Rhythmic (stutter, tremolo, etc.) and Tone (Adaptive EQ, compression, de-esser, etc.).
A TC-Helicon PR person told us, "Setting up a smooth producer-like vocal sound is as fast as it's easy including digtal recall of a complete Mic Channel with gain and phantom settings. Of course, it's the wide palette of included effects that offers tons of creative possibilities for the open-minded vocalist – a one-way ticket to 'The Land of Opportunities' for adventurous singers everywhere."
Here's the details direct from TC-Helicon: Ultimate Control – Included MP-75 Microphone
Control plays a major part in all singers' possibility to express themselves, and VoiceLive Rack comes with a TC-Helicon MP-75 microphone that allows the singer to control the effects of VoiceLive Rack directly from the microphone. In a live setting this offers the obvious advantage of freedom to explore every corner of the stage while controlling effects, and in the studio, both the engineer and the performer can access the effects – a never-before-seen flexibility that makes spontaneous creativity while tracking and mixing an actual option. For hardcore control freaks, VoiceLive Rack can also be controlled via a footswitch. Program and Recall
With the extremely versatile collection of pristine vocal effects, the possibilities are virtually endless. Fresh from the factory, VoiceLive Rack comes with an impressive 238 presets, but there is memory for an impressive 400 presets in total. Everything is stored – even the gain setting of the cutting-edge, digitally-controlled analog mic preamp. Versatile Harmony Control
VoiceLive Rack can generate vocal harmonies controlled by a real-time, analog signal by a guitar, with MIDI data from a keyboard or by setting key and scale. Using the MIDI option, users gain 100% control over the added harmonies, but as singers all over the world has been experiencing over the last decade, TC-Helicon's harmony algorithms hardly need any help creating divine-sounding vocal harmonies! Pre production VoiceLive Rack units are already in rehearsals for major touring acts coming in the Fall. For instance, VoiceLive Rack is already sitting comfortably in George Michael's current touring rig!
