TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play Acoustic Vocal / Guitar Multi – Effects Unit
An extension of the revolutionary VoiceLive Play GTX, the TC Helicon Play Acoustic is a vocal and guitar multi effects unit specifically designed for use with an acoustic guitar. Incorporating everything that VoiceLive Play gives to singers and adding award-winning TC Electronic guitar effects, the Play Acoustic contains everything a versatile performer could want. Artist presets offer signature vocal and guitar sounds while full editing ability allows you to define your unique style. Pro or practicing, the VoiceLive Play Acoustic is the singing guitarist’s dream machine.
Sound Like the Pros
Producers spend more time on perfecting vocals than any other instrument, and the number of layered vocal tracks on a studio recording often run well into the double-digits. Now the same care for creating vocals live or at home is available to everyone.
VoiceLive Play Acoustic gives singers the opportunity to experience the sound they know and love from their favorite songs with ease. Featuring automatic backing harmonies, vocal double tracking, pristine EQ and compression, lush reverbs, hard-tuned robo-voice – all the the goose-bumps-on-your-arm effects that make today’s Billboard hit vocals “pop”.
Instant Guitar Tone – No Amp Required
Plug your acoustic guitar into simple-to-use guitar effects including Distortions, Flange, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, EQ and more. The guitar effects on the VoiceLive Play Acoustic are imported from TC Electronic’s Hall of Fame Reverb and FlashBack Delay as well as the latest new algorithms from TC Electronic and TC-Helicon.
Acoustic Alchemy with BodyRez™ Technology
Ensuring that your acoustic guitar sounds just as it should, the VoiceLive Play Acoustic uses a special body resonance technology. Using the unique BodyRez™ technology, algorithms developed by TC Electronic work to restore the “wooden” acoustic tone so often missing when using under-saddle pick ups. With fast acting compression and accurate notch filters, the user has full control in shaping the sound of the pick up and determining how much of the BodyRez™ to dial in to produce the most natural resonant wooden tones of any acoustic guitar.
Pick a Genre, any Genre
Operating and navigating VoiceLive Play Acoustic is a breeze. The GENRE button allows you to easily browse hundreds of presets. Choose a style that suits you and VoiceLive Play Acoustic will list the presets that fit your preference. If you’ve never used effects before, you’ll quickly learn how to find the sound you’re looking for with GENRES.
Make It a Hit
HIT is a performance-inspired feature for building intensity into any vocal performance. Every preset has an effect that you can build upon by pressing the HIT button, which adds additional effects on top. For example, you could start with a simple reverb and then “HIT it” to add dazzling harmonies or a raw megaphone effect for emphasis – excellent for making choruses stand out instantly!
Guitar Controlled Harmonies & Correction
Don’t worry about key, VoiceLive Play Acoustic listens to the Guitar input to set key automatically. You get the perfect sounding Harmonies and Pitch Correction.
A Good Set of Ears
Embedded stereo RoomSense mics can control your harmonies from instruments nearby, replace the cabled mic for headphone practice or add ambiance to your headphone mix.
The VLOOP™ performance looper allows you to create complete guitar and vocal loops for solo jamming or impressive layered live performances. VLOOP is also handy for sound-check; record a short phrase and walk out into the audience to check levels while your “virtual you” plays!
Sing Along with Vocal Cancel
Singing along is a great way of practicing and performing. Plug in your MP3 player via the AUX In connector and use the Vocal Cancel feature to make your voice stand out over the vocals on the original track. You can also record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer.
Practice Makes Perfect
Dedicated PRACTICE mode that analyzes your performance in real-time, helping you spot your strengths as well as focus on the areas that might need attention.
TC-Helicon’s adaptive tone technology intelligently controls Shape EQ and Dynamics (Compression & De-ess) to provide the perfect tonal balance and add smooth dynamic control to fit in any mix.
