      After a solid year of road use with 1, then 2, then 4 of the TC Helicon VoiceTone Correct Vocal Pedals here are my opinions - SHAPE alone is worth the price of admission if you don't have a high dollar eq'd mic pre. It lays your vocals in front of music where it belongs, not on top. Works perfectly at 12 o'clock. I've tried it higher and the vocals get too much cut in the mix - TOO MUCH CUT, WOW! Helluva problem to have when you're trying to get cut! I've actually had a sound guy from a band whose vocals are always buried ask me "Don't you have a duller mic for that guy to sing on?"COMPRESSOR is really good for almost everyone at 12 o'clock. I have worked with singers that I could never get the rip out with my soft knee compressors without dropping their vocal in the mix. (You know the kind with blasting guitar amps using SM58s with mids on zero and reverb on max cause they think that's r'n'r.) With this compressor I can get the rip out turning only to the 3 o'clock position and never lose their vocal or cut mids or change to a brick like an SM58. I LOVE IT, but they sure hate the clarity so they have to back off the screaming and start pitching! HA HADE-ESS is fantastic for polishing even the best vocals. Just try with and without and you'll see. I always leave it on 12 o'clock, works fine.& PITCH is a fantastic vocal trainer - run the Main output WITHOUT PITCH to the 1st floor monitor, run the Guide output WITH PITCH at 12 o'clock to the 2nd floor monitor. This half dry comparison method gives continous feedback to the singer and they can hear anything that's off, saving tons of time with a vocal coach or months of vocal lessons. A live coach or teacher would never have time to get into the detail the singer hears continuously with this method. The DRY TO GUIDE button provided on the Correct is good with only one monitor, but the real half dry with two monitors is 10x gooder. Looking for key, pitch, arrangement and searching for the ideal tone? This is how to find them all.I've had band singer(s) complaining that it sounded like I had flange reverb in the monitors demanding it be taken out. I turned the PITCH knob to zero & they were satisfied. Eveything cool 2 or 3 songs in until I'm cringing at them never finding key on a particular song and pitch all over the map. I turned the pitch knob to 12 o'clock mid song with their manager watching me. They locked right on key and started pitching like they actually knew the song. I left it on the rest of the show and they think they just got warmed up at the beginning. GUESS WHAT YO-YOs? THE PITCH IS TRANSPARENT AND DON'T SOUND LIKE "FLANGE" IF YOU ARE ON PITCH IN THE FIRST PLACE! The manager said "Yeah if it works, just do it and don't tell them."Then again I've had dozens of singers doing everything from Sinatra to Elvis to Stevie Ray to Zep to G'N'R to Evanescence all to perfection with the PITCH knob at 12 o'clock and the singers and the audience Lovin' Every Minute of It! Me too!& the WARMTH button works great as a low key shift. When a singer gets lost on those low notes, pop this button and watch them start hitting them like magic. Lots of male C&W songs demand this button. The guys tranform from doing weak versions to full depth sound like the radio. WARNING: The WARMTH button will cause mud in the mix if used inappropriately.Until I get $5k racks full of vocal processing gear for each of my mics I think I will be madly in love with these little boxes. THANK YOU TC HELICON!

      First of all, not only have I used other pitch correctors, but I'm a software engineer very familiar with signal processing, and algorithms by which they work. True, correcting pitch is no longer rocket science, but doing it transparently is still an art, which this product fails at miserably. I should have known when I saw and heard TC Helicons own demo of the product on "Youtube." As soon as the singer turned it on, you could hear a few subtle but annoying clicks and "bubbles" in the voice, as the unit jumped from one supposedly "transparent" pitch correction to the next. Don't get me wrong... all pitch correctors have these issues. But even the earliest Antares brand correctors gave you enough parameters to "tweak", to get a near transparent compromise. This one has a single knob for adjustment of the affect, and any setting in which it is actually effective still produces these subtle but annoying jumps... not quite "clicks", but maybe like bubbles in the singers throat. The internal pitch change gradients are simply too course, the transition from one correction to the next is not done in smooth "S-curve" transitions, and the methods by which the product attempts to mask the problem is audible. You'll end up futzing with it for days trying to get it to do what the very wordy documentation promises.Regarding the "adaptive" compression and tone shaping, It would be a good idea if once it "learned", it would "save" it's settings for the rest of the gig. It doesn't. It just re-adapts over 30 seconds each time you sing into it. So be sure to tell your sound man and audience not to worry about everything being out of balance the first 30 seconds of each song/set. Yeah right!The tone shaping/EQ doesn't provide enough options at all. It does a good job letting you correct the high and low end, but not in an easy manner to mess with at a gig. And it certainly does nothing to help correct any EQ issues in the middle range. A Parametric EQ filter would have been more of value than just lo and hi correction.The Compression also falls terribly short. You'll have to play with it for 10 minutes to prove to yourself it's actually working and not just affecting the overall volume. It does work, but again it certainly does not have enough adjustability or range to be useful in more than a handful of circumstances. The De-Essing works and is handy. The unit has no reverb, not a big deal since most sound systems do these days. But since they go out of their way to provide you separate paths for monitor and main outputs, it would have been a nice addition, because a little reverb in a headphone mix is a nice listening aid, whether or not you want it in the mains. And by the way, since they do provide a "monitor" mix, a "headphone" output would have been a worthwhile addition, for home recording use. Finally, I could find no way (unless it's a hidden setting) to conveniently set the output level. (Maybe that's why there's no headphone output?). To me, any modern effects unit that performs internal A/D and D/A conversion prior to and after signal processing has to have both an input gain and an output level setting, even if the output level is only a "screwdriver hole" adjustment.I seldom write reviews. But in this case, there was such a wide gap between the disappointing truth and long winded encouraging and extensive write up ( both advertised and in the manual), that I just had to do this. In retrospect, it's almost as if the design engineers wrote the manual to convince themselves that they were satisfied with the way it worked. You, the musician, likely will not be.On the plus side, the unit is very ruggedly and tightly constructed, and has a wonderfully unobtrusive size. But then, what good is all that if like me, you end up re-packing it and returning for a refund.

      Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Correct Vocal Pedal:

      The Voicetone Correct has a very intuitive operation. You can plug it in, turn it on, and leave it alone. It works really well. Subtle but powerful affect on vocals. I definitely recommend this for amateurs or pros because it helps you to visually see where improvements can be made to your singing.

              Despite all of the positive reviews, I think I received a defective unit. Whether through my pa or through a recording interface there was very little power and a constant hum. Judging from all of the good reviews I read, I think I was just unlucky.

                  Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Correct Vocal Pedal:

                  At first, when I tried it out, I was using headphones. I seemed to warm my voice a bit, but nothing that a bit of EQ couldn't do. The compression was a bit harsh. The compression on my Yamaha board works much better.

                  When I took it to a gig, and got it all set up with the reccomended settings, It distorted terribly. Sounded like a cheap mick and under-powered sound system. I tried everything i could to keep it from distorting, but nothing worked. I have owned and operated PA systems for 40 years, so I know how to set up the gain structure.
                  It worked just OK on the non-adaptive mode, but once you let it make its own adjustments, it distorted! I never even got to try the pitch correction. Who cares about perfect-pitch distortion? Maybe I got a bad unit....

                  This pedal provides an excellent combination of adaptive EQ, compression, and subtle pitch correction, usable both on stage (its set-and-forget controls make it ideal) and in the studio. I have also been successfully using it(with a touch of pre-compression)for "re-voicing" during mixdown.

                      Worth it

                      This pedal does a great job; just plug everything in and forget it. The power supply is flimsy but other than that it is a tank. I sing at band practice currently with no fx until I get the create pedal, it polishes your sound enough to pull that off.

                      LOTS more than advertised!

                      I've been using this since it first came out, and have come to love and rely on it for ALL tracks! I actually keep the pitch correction turned down quite a bit (rather harsh past 12 o'clock), but it still corrects nicely and the OTHER features make it more than worth the price, and having around. Using it with a "Create" pedal now!
