OVERVIEW

2-voice intelligent harmonies generated by your playing!

The TC•Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G is a studio-quality vocal harmony effects pedal designed for guitar players. The Harmony-G pedal takes the need for programming completely out of the equation, since your guitar playing tells Harmony-G what notes to harmonize. Adaptive mixing and harmony arrangement algorithms follow guitar and voice, and produce realistic harmonies without pre-programming. A guitar AutoMix function provides acoustic guitar players with a balanced mix of vocals, guitar, and effects.

The VoiceTone harmony-G pedal's straightforward controls enable you to go further and arrange voicing and effects changes in your songs by stepping through 10 presets with A/B settings as you perform. VoiceTone Harmony-G also features XLR mic level I/O, a guitar input, and pass-thru for separate amp and guitar tuner inputs.

Each effect pedal in the TC Helicon VoiceTone line has a unique purpose, yet they complement each other perfectly. Their studio-quality sound, ready-for-action construction, and unobtrusive size let you carry TC Helicon VoiceTone pedals with your favorite mic to the gig, whether it's a club or a concert hall. And operation couldn't be easier. You'll get the sound you want in seconds, instantly boosting your performance the very first night you use a TC Helicon VoiceTone pedal. Up til now, only the most successful singers could take their producer, live engineer, back-up singers and vocal coach on the road. Now it's your turn to bring your vocal posse with you and ensure that your message, and your sound are heard.

Quality is discernible in every aspect of TC Helicon VoiceTone pedal design. Studio-caliber audio algorithms, transparent converters, and fastidious analog audio design lead to a smooth sound that makes you sound your best. It just wouldn't be enough to make a product that helps you sound this good without making sure it can stand up to rough treatment onstage or in the studio. TC Helicon designers gave the VoiceTone Harmony-G vocal effect pedal sturdy construction to survive being moved and stepped under conditions found on the road.

I have both the VoiceTone Create and the Harmony-G, and use them together in my home jam room, because the Create gives me more control over the vocal effects. I turn the FX mix off on the Harmony and just use the doubler and/or harmonies. When I go to play with friends, I just take the Harmony-G and use it for both harmony and effects.
I don't use the Guitar Thru, but it works well to just feed the Harmony pedal with the second line out of my guitar multi-fx pedal, or the second channel of my keyboard.
Only one quirk I've noticed - even when playing a straight major chord, the 3rd-up harmony often, but not always, goes to to the 7th when I sing a 5th, rather than going to the octave above. It seems to vary with the key.
The only other thing is my guitar chord sometimes drags across the Input and cranks my volume up or down. I'm thinking I need a shim to make it a little harder to turn, or maybe a guard.
The TC Helicon Harmony-G is quite versatile, allowing you to decide how many presets you want to have, up to 10, so if you want fewer you won't have to cycle through the extra ones. The dual-mode footswitch lets you access all your presets without bending over, or change to A/B mode to toggle between the two parts of your preset. Editing and storing is easy, but I might have liked a wider range of effects, or some way to tweak the ones provided. The FX level sets the mix the same for all presets, so you need to find a point where the subtle effects come through without the bolder effects being too dominant, unless you prefer to adjust the level when you change presets. But the Harmony functions are great, and the effects are sufficient to make this a stand-alone pedal.
The pedal is sturdy and the controls feel smooth and firm. Footswitches work well and seem durable.
The features and quality make this an excellent value for the price.

If you play any guitar chord varriations, such as an Em7, the harmony processor won't know how to harmonize with your voice. It waffles back-n-forth between a major and minor arrangement. If you can play simple chords, this will work for you. You should be able to play a killer version of James Taylor's "Carolina in my Mind," but this unit can't figure out how to harmonize unless you dummy up the guitar chords as to defeat the purpose.

Having Problems with mine

By 

from Orange County CA

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

The unit souned great out of the box but the XLR conection was faulty & made loud noices when touched so I exchanged it for a new one. That one worked fine for about a month or 2 .then I noticed that the power would fluctuate. I do both a solo acoustic gig & a 4 piece rock band gig. On my acoustic gig I would notice the volume of the guitar suddenly dropping. It took me a while to figure out that it was the Harmony G. I was playing last week with my rock band & I noticed the same power flucuation with the vocal & guitar. I love the effect but I'm thinking I'll have to purchase something of higher quality.
Great price but it doesn't work consistantly.

Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

Harmony from a machine is always going to sound like harmony from a machine. Only a real person singing harmony sounds real. But this little machine is great on some songs. If you want to thicken up spots on your song with harmony this will do the trick. I love it and it's a great little toy that I use for studio and live shows.
If you are looking for some two part harmonies this is a great little unit with everything you need for simple harmony.
Well built unit.
For the money it is a great unit.

Robust Harmonies!

By 

from Minneapolis

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

I think the Harmony-G is wonderful for musicians who are taking their first step in experimenting with their vocals or for gigging musicians who want a compact, simple solution. I suspect that adding additional pedals or processors would allow you to go crazy with your sound, but this is a very good pedal with a lot to offer.
For a compact pedal, the T.C. Helicon Harmony-G pedal reall has a lot to offer. Two presets and simple controls make it easy to dial in a harmony on the fly. You can also add effects (reverb, etc.) with ease. I love that it has a built-in tuner as well!
This pedal has a nice metal casing and the footswitches seem to be pretty solid. All the jacks feel nice and snug. I think the construction of the unit is top-quality. As for the quality of the output, I couldn't be happier. If you're on-key (which I sometimes am), the harmonies are clean and robust. You can really fill out your vocals!
I think that this is an amazing unit for the price! I'm sure there are harmony processors with a much more vast set of features, but this unit is effective, simple to use and modestly-priced.

Harmony-G

By 

from California

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

I'll really have to get into this thing more before I can say much more about it.
It does Harmony pretty well for the short time I've had to test this thing out, I was hoping it would have better delay features but maybe I haven't got to figure that part out yet, It would be nice if it had more effects.
this unit is pretty well built, like I said I've only tested this a short time (like 20 minutes)
you know we are always hoping to get a steal deal on any equipment, I waited for a sale as I always try to do when buying thing, besides getting a good deal the unit will come in handy for some invisible backup singers in the band.. lol !

Some in your audience will go Hmmm???

By 

from Southern Californa

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

We gigged with it on SuperBowl Sunday for the first time, and I could tell there were one or two people in the audience who were a little perplexed that they were hearing 4 voices, but only two guys were singing. I probably should have backed off the Harmony knob to the left a bit. I know that sometimes it seems like technology allows us to cheat as musicians (can you say autotune?) But to be fair, with a device like a harmonizer, it is garbage in garbage out. The musician still has to do their part. As a band, we are pretty impressed with the Voice Tone Harmony G and at this point would replace it if it was jacked. Before the guys show for rehearsal I crank everything up and play some Pink Floyd, or Neil Young Cinammon Girl and marvel at how sick I sound (the good sick). Just be careful with the Ouput & Harmony knobs - you've got to know how much is enough. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. BTW - dont forget to turn it off after each song when you talk to your audience or you will sound like a bad robot! Lame...
I've only had it about 3 weeks, but, I've also already gigged with it. What I like about this unit is that the Features vs. Ease of use, make it a very useable device. You will wish you had 3 foot switchable presets very quickly, but all you have to do is reach down and change it, which is a snap to do. Watch the input knob as your level can rise above your bandmates very quickly. The Harmony knob is also pretty usable - I put it center up or slightly to the left for most of the harmonies, but I crank it all the way to the right with voice 1 on Higher and no voice 2 to achieve cool Pink Floyd harmonies while relegating my natural voice way into the background.
So far so good, but I've only had it less than a month. Time will tell... My only gripe is that the foot switches do not have clicks in them - just my personal preference
Two extra sets of vocal chords for under $200 bucks. Count me in! In all seriousness, this device adds a layer of richness in one of the toughest areas to do so. If you don't abuse the effect, it will pay you back with real value add for your band.

Great Vocal Tool For The Money

By 

from Philly, PA

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

I had to shave a couple points for the overall rating because even though it does sound pretty amazing, I can still detect that "processed" harmony sound at times, so it's not quite there yet as far as having a totally human quality. Pretty close, though!
I understand that this model (VoiceTone Harmony G) has been discontinued to make way for the Harmony-GX. I would still recommend this unit, though.

Just like many others have said, it's simple to use, sounds fantastic and gives you lots of options. I do miss one feature though, which I have on my Digitech Vocal Harmonizer - that is the ability to just press a button or two and let it know which key you're in without having to rely on the guitar. There is a manual mode, but it takes a little more effort to set up. I think if I hadn't owned the Digitech first, I would find this works out just fine. I also like the microphone stand mount and the footswith input that the Digitech comes with as opposed to the I/O switches being built into the TCH Harmony G. If an I/O button goes out on the TC Helicon, I'm afraid it would be the end of the unit, whereas the Digitech uses a standard keyboard pedal which can be replaced. Again, I must stress that the low price of the Harmony G is what sealed the deal for me, It does have some nice features and works very well as a mic pre-amp, too.
Seems to be built pretty sturdy except for what I said about the on-off buttons being built into the unit. At some point, those stomp box type buttons are bound to fail.
Despite my petty grievances, which are based on years of playing with an number of effects, I can't really complain too much because the price is very low for the amount of features you get in this box.

Harmonizing fun

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

This is my second unit I've had. The first, I sold because at the time I wasn't using it. Now doing acoustics again, I remembered how I liked it. So I got it again. I've been singing close to 40 years so voice correct features on other models don't appeal to me as I learned to sing on pitch. This unit is just perfect for what I do. It allows me and my acoustic partner to sing Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young as well a multitude of Beatle and Eagles songs.
Does what it says.
So far so good.

Incredible Toy!

By 

from Montana

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

Singing lead, this can really add dimension to your sound, and you can adjust it to fit individual songs, melodies, harmonies. Very ingenious.
Simple to use, but lots of features to choose from, sounds incredible!
All metal box, apprears very solid to me.
A little pricy, but you do get what you pay for, and sounds better than any other harmony box I played with. (digitech, etc.)

Nice unit.

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G Vocal Effects Pedal for Guitarists:

Overall - I dig it. Easy to use and sounds very nice.
I actually bought the Voicelive Touch and decided that it did way more than I needed. So I unloaded it and got the Harmony G for much less money. It does just what I want. A little reverb and a 3rd above harmony.
Seems well made. Only time will tell.
Great value at the current price (especially with a coupon)
