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.

    Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

    The sound quality with the Tone switch on is very balanced, crisp, produced. It does cause a little feedback though, small adjustments take care of that. The harmonies are absolutely outstanding! The compact size and smooth on/off switch are such a nice change from my old bulky unit! love this little pedal!

    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:

      Our church Praise Team is relatively small but tight sounding group. I added this to my mike and acoustic guitar and (as one of the male voices) pop in the upper harmonies during the chorus/refrains. Adds a lush, fuller sound to our vocals without being distracting.

      Our director is leery of new tech toys and worries about those toys misbehaving during performance, but the Harmony Singer has not failed yet. Note that you do have to plug all the connections in prior to powering it up. We found that if you power it up prior to connecting the mike, it will not recognize the microphone...easily fixed, just unplug the power and plug it back in. Even our director has given his tentative nod of approval on its reliability and loves the sound.

      For those singers worried about it being a distraction, don't worry. You actually hear less of it as you are singing (the resonance of your voice in your head overpowers what you will typically hear through your PA.) I haven't tried it with in-ear monitors, but with external monitors, all I notice is lusher chorus.

      BTW, if you are singing a sustained pitch and change chords (say major to minor), it will change your harmony pitches. This could be good or bad depending on what you want it to do. We have found that on the rare occasion I will need to sustain a guitar chord through a chord change or move to a new chord early to prevent the vocal harmonies from changing...if we want to keep the pitch from changing, but that is not a big deal typically.

      Only con, and it is very minor, is that I would love to be able to have it do more than two harmonies at a time. For instance have it do one below and two above my voice. Not a big deal though. Have no complaints at all.

      Bottomline: TCHelicon knows how to work vocal processing, it sounds natural and our director would love to have TC Helicon come up with a piano tech toy to allow him to just plunk a melody and have it play the harmonies for him (hah!!)

      Get this! You will not be disappointed!

      Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

      It may be a little early to rate this pedal, as I just got it today. But From what I've found just toying around with it. It is an Excellent piece of equipment. Right out of the box, and with a few personal adjustments, I had this unit harmonizing with just my voice, And in key! The only problem I have is that I have a soft voice, and if I don't "let it out there" It tends to cut in and out. So it needs a strong voice. For any of You wondering if it comes with a power adapter the answer is yes. Other users have said that You have to be on key and guided by a guitar, I found this not to be true. You can use it for harmony without an instrument if you want.

                Not as good as live vocals, but versatile enough to be effective. Good variation in multiple high low/combination harmonies. Great for small solo performances.

                  The Harmony Singer is great for adding backup
                  vocals. You be sure though you are in pitch
                  with your instrument/chord. Do Not drift off
                  key with your voice.

                    Comments about TC Helicon Harmony Singer Effects Pedal:

                    I was amazed at the harmony this pedal produces.
                    I have purchased another for my wife. We have a
                    GP band playing Country, 60's and 70's hits.
                    Now we have our back-up vocals that are in sync
                    and on pitch.
                    It's true you have to be on pitch also. My wife
                    and I are pretty good this way so, the harmony
                    the pedal produces, is pretty close to perfect.
                    Excellant Quality!!
