TC-Helicon debuts VoiceTone Harmony-G XT for guitarists

Guitarist/singers wishing to add harmony background vocals to their performances will appreciate TC-Helicon's VoiceTone Harmony-G XT. As well as improved harmony technology and reverb taken from its big brother VoiceLive 2, Harmony-G XT now adds Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction – available as a free download for all Harmony-G XT owners.

What is Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction?
With Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction TC-Helicon has just made it even easier to deliver pitch-perfect vocals every time. Regular pitch tuning woks to a key or scale, but with Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction there’s no scale or key setting, allowing vocalists to plug in a mic and deliver perfect vocals every time.

The typical adjustments of key, scale and attack time aren't present because the chromatic scale works for all Western scale-based songs and the rest of the parameters are preset. Simply double-click the Tone button and pitch correction is engaged. With Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction the only controls are On/Off.

New Features in VoiceTone Harmony-G XT
A wealth of new features make Harmony-G XT a better-sounding and easier-to-use vocal effect foot-pedal:
• Auto-Chromatic pitch correction gives perfect pitch every time
• Improved NaturalPlay guitar-controlled harmony algorithm
• Front-of-house quality reverb algorithm and selection of styles from VoiceLive 2
• Selection of four overdub-style doubling effects with two more doubling voices available
• Reworked FX presets offer even more utility across music styles
• USB connection for easy software updates, tips, and preset backup using the included VoiceSupport applet
• Adaptive harmony gate added to Tone for a cleaner mix
• Easy manual selection of Scale & Key for singers without an instrument or horn players
