    You can tell right when you take it out of the box that it is a quality piece of gear. It is well built and uses a metal housing instead of plastic. It is a little smaller and lighter than I expected but seems very rugged so I'm not concerned with taking it to gigs.The interface is simple enough you could take it out of the box plug it right in and go. A quick glance over the manual is enough to get you a little deeper in right away. The presets are decent enough and laid out in such a way it's pretty easy to find the type of sound you are looking for. Each preset has 2 parameters you can tweak. Different presets have different parameters available depending on the types of effects used. You also have control of the wet/dry mix via a dedicated knob. You can also use the two outputs to output one wet and one dry channel if you want your sound guy to control your wet/dry mix I can also see this being extremely useful in the studio for giving a singer a little "confidence" reverb while still recording a dry signal.So how does it sound? In a word wow! I have to qualify my following statements with the fact that this is my first "top end" piece of gear I have purchased. TC Helicon has never had a product anywhere near my price range before.That being said just the preamp in this thing is great. Even with the effects off my vocals sound way better than they ever did on my ART tube MP preamp let alone the preamp in my mixer. The effects sound gorgeous, beautiful warm reverb, the distortion effect is the best I've ever heard for vocals. I really can't think of any vocal style that couldn't benefit from the use of this pedal.I don't have many complaints except that it would be nice to have access to more parameters and the ability to create your presets from scratch. The TC Helicon site refers to something called "super edit mode" where you can do just that but I can't seem to find any info on how exactly that is going to work.

    I have had this for a year and am about to sell it and try another tc electronics vocal pedal - many of the presets don't let you control the reverb mix - so I have to use the mix on the pedal for different presets - it just can't be controlled like a regular reverb or delay - but some of the presets are really great- also I set the gain really low and still over drive the pre amp -

    Good stuff Maynard..

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    I look forward to buying the Voice Tone Correct Pedal to go with this one. When I read about these product now I feel that I will receive what I was promised. I would buy another of these if at some point it fails/dies.
    Ease of use for this device is awsome. easily dial in what ever sound you want, the instruction book breaks down all the preset effects and their corresponding X &amp; Y levels and what they do. You need no more help than that. The quality of the preamp outshined my expectations.
    Rugged and solid. I believe you would have to be trying to break this or especially clumsy to hurt it. Easy to see LED lights. If you think you may have missed you stomp, A quick peek and you'll see immediatly if your correct channle or effect is really working.
    I am not really an experienced singer. I have never bought vocal effects before. Do I get what I wanted out of this pedal? YES. Should that mean much to you? Meh..
    I bought this as opposed to buying a rack or floor based multi effect that would require me to sit down and spend time(that I have precious little of) to learn to properly use it. I can add in other simple pedals as I need them and with the quality of this one, I will most assuredly buy another TC product. Buy this, you wont feel burned later if you do.

    Has everything I was looking for. Lots of selection and can be adjusted to suite the many types of rooms I play. Very happy with this purchase.
    Very well made, solid enclosure.
    All buttons and knobs are high quality
    Since being discontinued getting this item for half price is a bonus.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    TC Heligon create vocal pedal. Very good product.
    I got mine today 2/1/12. I think this leans more towards kids that want to goof around with certain vocal patterns. Don't get me wrong, it does have some nice features. This is not a piece of crap. Very well built and has good effects. The reverb is a little on the grungy side, but some may like that, I don't. But I do like many of the other styles it has. Get yourself a good amp. I'm running into an old amp, mono cable, but that will change. It still sounds good though. I give it a 7 out of 10. If you're into a Band whether pro or not, you should consider a more up graded model. If you like goofing around or you want to record, this one will work.
    Very well constructed.
    How can you match MusiciansFriends prices. This product is well worth the price.

    a little floor style magic

    By Charles Chriscaden

    from upstate N.Y.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    ease of adjustment, small footprint; control over my own effects, clean sound and great deal of a price adds up to an effect that is useful .
    X &amp; Y tweak + Mix make dialing in a sound relatively easy
    soild case seems sturdy; good switch feel
    priced right; sounds are as good as many more pricey rack mount units

    Nice and convenient for gigging.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    Great product, better than average effects. Just what a gigging mucician needs.
    For a foot pedal it has some nice features like the phantom power and stereo mode. A wide variety of presets as well. Some seem over the top but they seem to fit into today's music.
    Built pretty solid.
    For the type of gigging and performing that I do, mostly at the last minute, this pedal comes in handy. I can tell the sound guy to let me just run my mic through this pedal and I will worry about the effects that I need and when I need them.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    I now have 3 of these. until now I could not find a decent vocal effect. I took the advise I received at Giutar Center and tried one out. Great doubling effect, gives fantastic body to my vocals and my brothers backups also. Makes dreamy vocals effortless.

    Great for project/demo work!

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    The VoiceTone Create has VERY nice reverbs, delays and effects - AND phantom power. It's SO easy to use, and the sound is simply astounding!I have a palette of delays that would have cost ten to twenty times as much back in the "good old days", in a box no bigger (or harder to use) than a stomp box.Now that I have one, I wouldn't do without it.

    I'm happy with it.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    I'm not easily pleased by any piece of equipment. It has to be reliable and do what it's supposed to do. This product meets my expectations. Its got some good stuff in it. The volume differences are noticeable. If you have your volume puszhed to the max in your monitor and then switch to one of the special effects it will feedback. I really like setting my own tap tempo and using the delay effects. I use it for some pretty basic vocal effects as we are always traveling and I'm really picky about effects. It's easy to take along a 10 ft mic cable and just plug into the house mic anywhere. I leave this thing sitting on my guitar pedalboard all the time. I love it.

    Just what the Dr. ordered for live recording!

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Create Vocal Pedal:

    I've been using this in conjunction with their "Correct" pedal since they came out, and can't tell you how much I love this pedal! Once you've programmed a few settings for your performance (very easily done), you can step, tap and click your way through your set and never look at or touch the unit otherwise! Never wait for a sound engineer to change settings or hope he got the delay tempo right again! This lets you do it yourself, and get better effects for better results, too! Love it!!!!
