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

    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.

            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.

            I'm an experienced keyboard player having started playing piano in church when I was 10 y\o. I'm now 57 and have played organ and piano for over 40 years and also started with a Kurtzweil K-1000 in a gospel group during times when we couldn't keep a drummer, I ended up playing 2 keyboards, singing tenor, AND operating a drum machine with my right foot on 2 pedals. Sooo, come on, give us a harmony pedal for keyboard players. Sorry this is so long. Thx guys.

              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.

                This little pedal has great sound and selections
                The two problems I face with it though are, With my big feet, it's easy to bump the controls out of position when using it, and finding a 2 way foot switch to operate between two of them has proven to be quite difficult. But I own two of these pedals and would definitely recommend them for the small gig player.

                  I needed guitar driven harmony for new country and vintage rock live performance. This unit is simple to operate and sounds great. I have tried more complex/expensive units, and prefer the easy flexibility this unit offers with very little compromise in comparative sound quality.

                  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!

                    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.
