TC-Helicon announces four effects pedals for vocalists

Why should guitarists, bassists and keyboardists have all the fun? TC-Helicon is proud to announce the arrival of the VoiceTone Singles range – four vocal processing pedals, each with a single mission: to allow any vocalist to deliver jaw-dropping performances.

VoiceTone Singles are the ultimate combination of tone and simplicity. Each of the four effects has inherited algorithms from the award-winning VoiceLive 2, so although VoiceTone Singles come in small packages they deliver a big sound.

VoiceTone Singles not only deliver the sound vocalists dream of in a compact and easy to operate pedal, they also push the boundaries of innovation with the addition of Mic Control – TC-Helicon’s unique and innovative new technology that allows vocalists to switch the effects on and off with TC-Helicon’s brand new MP-75 Modern Performance vocal microphone.

Up to four VoiceTone Singles can be connected together with the Singles Connection Kit to form the ultimate vocal processing chain. The kit includes a 12V power supply, 3 x DC daisy-chaining connectors, 3 x short XLR cables.

Each of the VoiceTone Singles pedals feature:

• Studio quality mic-pre with phantom power
• Balanced XLR output
• Recessed gain knob that prevents accidental bumps on stage
• USB for connecting to VoiceSupport for added tips, tricks, support and updates
• Die-cast steel design
• Rubberized base
• Audio performance to rival high-end front-of-house mixers
• Remote Mic Control with TC-Helicon MP-75 microphone
