OVERVIEW

The guitar pedal for your voice.

The Harmony Singer is the perfect partner for focusing on your vocals. It's an essential and exciting vocal processing no larger than a guitar stomp box, but with a massive sound. Whether you're electric, electro-acoustic, pro or practicing, your vocal presentation will sound like your group just increased by a couple of backup singers, an expert engineer and a ton of gear.

It's an all-in-one, compact pedal featuring Vocal Harmony, Tone and Reverb. You can utilize up to two harmony voices guided automatically by the guitar via the In/Thru connection. The Adaptive Tone "sweetens" overall vocal quality and 3 high-quality Reverb styles with adjustable level.

Tone is much more than just a four-letter word. Under the hood of Harmony Singer is a collection of high end audio processes tweaked to perfection. Smooth dynamics? Check. Silky brightness? Check. Reduced "sss" sounds? Check. No more muddy lows? Check. And these processes automatically adapt to the tone and dynamic range of your singing so that even with an average PA, you'll always sound your best.

You won't have to brush up on your vocal arranging skills as Harmony Singer does this for you. It instantly analyzes your guitar chords so that when you hit the footswitch, your harmony backup group is in tune and on time. When it's this easy, you'll find yourself trying harmony in songs you wouldn't have thought of before.

Sure everything has reverb in it these days, but when your reverb sounds great it makes you equally great. TC Helicon's sister company, TC Electronic is renowned in the pro-audio community for the quality of its reverb algorithms and the styles in Harmony Singer hark directly from that lineage. The Room, Club and Hall styles are all built to flatter your voice, so go ahead and crank it up, your audience will love it.

Of course you don't want to announce your next song or chat to the folks with Rverb on. Holding the Harmony on/off button puts you into Talk mode where your voice is still processed by Tone but the Reverb and Harmony effects are turned off. A quick tap and you're back in the land of pristine ambience.

If you've ever connected a mic to your PA, you're ready to connect Harmony Singer. Mic to Harmony Singer and Harmony Singer to PA. Nice and easy. Your guitar connects the same way you'd connect your other stomp box effects - only it likes to be first in the chain.

FEATURES
  • Choice of 8 arrangements of Harmony voices: above and below, close and far
  • Room, Club and Hall reverb choices
  • Separate mix level control of Harmony voices
  • Transparent Thru connection to guitar amp
  • Ground lift remove shum when needed
  • Clean, clear, low noise mic preamp with phantom power
  • Reverb and Tone can remain on whether Harmony is on or off so you can always sound great
  • Mic Control allows remote Harmony on/off using the switch on the Sennheiser e835 fx or TC-Helicon MP-75 mic
  • Compat, easy to use
  • Rugged all-metal construction

Only rated it 4 stars because is anything perfect? There are just so many bogus reviews from people who love something just bcause they own it. I had the G-XT version but it just was too large for pedal board AND the connections were a total hassle and NOT robust. The Harmony Singer fixes that issue. For me, this is the easiest vocal harmony pedal to use. I have had the original voice live which was a tap dance nightmare. I also tried the Digitech 3. Eh. TC has them all beat in my opinion. I do wish it had selectable keys so that it could be used without the guitar plugged into it (studio use).

The harmonies do sound real provided you do not set the harmony level prominent in the mix. I have no tracking issues with it. It will get used at gigs to cover harmonies that the rest of the band can't get right or when a new song is ready except for one harmony part......like the G-XT was used. Set the harmony level low and the other guy can lock on to it to sing his part correctly. It is another tool to add to my arsenal. Here's the clincher for me. The TONE button. Worth the price of the pedal just for the TONE feature. Almost bought the H1 but that TONE button.........couldn't live without it. Buy it.

I have a TC Helicon Voice mode and I play my keyboards through it. Works great. Bought this as I wanted a backup for gigs. But.....this Harmony Singer Effects Pedal cannot be used with a keyboard. Only a guitar, so it was a waste of time for me. But it did have great harmony sounds.

      Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

      After a not so great experience with another harmony pedal I made sure to take it out of the box and try it out the day it arrived. So far I'm pleased with it. It is very easy to set up and use. Very happy with the response...your guitar MUST be in tune though (which makes sense). For accapello parts such as the intro to Seven Bridges Road, I just pluck the high and low notes and it locks in on the harmonies accurately. I have yet to use it in a gig but I'm thinking it will work out well.

      Good sound quality

      Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

      Super easy to use and adjust on the fly. Sound quality was great. Love the tone button. Made my voice sound really good even when pedal not depressed. Wish the pedal had a manual over ride for the key. Some of my songs came in a half step short of key. Others were fine. No rhyme or reason that I could tell. Traded it in for a Voicelive that has more control over sound output and manual over ride. FYI - I had to run both pedals thru a direct box. Otherwise they were too hot for my PA, even on the minimum setting. I have a Fender Passport PA.

        Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

        I'm really happy with this pedal. After 21 years performing with my friend as a duo, I found myself doing solo gigs. The female harmony was gone. Just me. Just me for 3-4 hours is boring! Once I plugged my acoustic in and powered up, I was using Harmony Singer and getting some very nice harmonies. Bringing harmonies it in and out on songs like Wagon Wheel, Peaceful Easy Feeling or A Horse With No Name, was instantly gratifying. The built in reverb and EQ in the pedal sounds much better than the onboard effects from my Mackie powered mixer. Easy to use and it sounds great.

        Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

        I watched the videos, read the reviews, and took the leap. It was well worth it. Even without the harmonies, the enhancement that the "tone" button adds to a microphone is amazing. I use a Shure SM58 and run it through either an acoustic amp (practice) or a small PA (performance) and the sound is fantastic. The Peavey PA is lacking in reverb and tone shaping capabilities but this pedal means that I don't have to replace it just yet. The 3 different reverbs on the pedal are excellent and you can actually hear a change in them with a small turn of the dial. There is a lot of range in each one, from very subtle to oops too much. These features alone make the pedal an excellent investment.

        Being a solo acoustic performer, the ability to add harmony without adding people is a welcome addition. If you are someone that already writes with harmony in mind, then it is all right there for you. If, like me, you are a single voice kind of guy then the Harmony Singer will open up some doors that you probably should have kicked down long ago. Figuring out which voicings to add takes some tinkering but becomes pretty intuitive with a little experimentation.

        The only voicing that I have had some trouble with is the highest, which is a 5th above your voice. My voice is not that high pitched but the 5th above can get a little robot chipmunk sounding. The solution, either dial down your voice or just don't use it, you have other options.

        Overall, this is an excellent tool for a solo performer. I could see it being overused, so avoid that, but there is no reason not to have this pedal. I only gave it 4 stars because nothing is perfect, but it's pretty close. Just buy it.

        Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

        Great harmony effects and a lot of fun. Really easy to use. However, I'm a baritone and it really works best when I sing at the top of my range - not so good at the bottom as it gets muddy. I use with an acoustic guitar and both pedal and guitar are fed thru to an acoustic amp that also has mic input and it works great.

          Being a 30+ year music veteran, I've downsized my equipment in all forms. As such, this unit replaces my former rack-mounted DigiTech Pro Vocal processor, and sits nicely in my 6 effect pedal board. With 24 bit processing and a lot of computational power, this unit is remarkable compared to what was available just a few years ago. I really like the soft switch, the low noise, and LED light real-time feedback. To take it to the next step, I'd really like the same functionality with some additional choices in reverb [I use plate almost exclusively], reverb tone, and delay. But for what it is - it functions flawlessly, housed in a great chassis, and is reasonably priced.

              Does what it is supposed to and does it well.
              I play solo and in a 3 piece group. I have only used it for 2 performances so far but was very oleased with it's sound and function. I have been using a Digitech Vocalist Performer (really old) for about eight years or so. I was still happy with the sound but not happy about having to set the key I was singing in. This makes things much easier and the sound is better too.
              If you think you could use some harmonies, Buy this. You won't be dissappointed.

              Already had the competitor's product, Digitech Vocalist Live 3, also a good harmonizer with more features and a highger price. But a bigger footprint as well. Like this because it fits in my board and gives me 90% of what the bigger more expensive one does. I still bring my digitech to solo gigs cuz it takes the place of a small board when used with a powered speaker. But for band gigs, this is great.
