If you've heard enough performances in small venues where pro equipment isn't being used, you know that the common problems with the vocal amplification are boominess, sibilance, lack of compression, and flatness. This one pedal solves all those issues! This pedal provides compression, de-S'ing, adaptive equalization, pre-amp boosting, noise-gating, and reverb and delay effects. (yes, it does have pitch correction, but honestly I would be just as happy if it didn't) The real-time adaptive equalization and compression means that you'll get optimal sound even if you don't stand perfectly still in front of the mic. Also very important, the pedal is QUIET. I looked at the Digitec vocal processor and discovered that it introduces a lot of noise to the signal. That's somewhat acceptible on a guitar channel, NOT on a vocal channel. Another very cool feature is the ability to tap out the tempo to be used for the delay effect. The pitch correction does allow you to do a rather cool trick: auto-double tracking, ie. chorusing. If you set the auto-tune high and set the effect level around 50%, your vocal imperfections will make it sound like a double-tracked vocal.
I'd say that this pedal is indispensible for anyone who plays small to medium venues and wants a professional sound. You no longer have to rely on their equipment being up to snuff and you can control the reverb and or echo from the stage. If you were to buy a compressor, an equalizer, and a reverb/delay pedal separately, you'd already be spending twice what this pedal costs.

Disappointing Performance/Features

Bought brand new. Quite disappointed. Distortion in midrange- confirmed with audio analyzer. May be related to supposed fix for whistling, but USB connection on mine didn't work so no way to download...Read complete review

Bought brand new. Quite disappointed. Distortion in midrange- confirmed with audio analyzer. May be related to supposed fix for whistling, but USB connection on mine didn't work so no way to download patch (tried 2 computers, 2 diff cables). Reverb/delay OK, not as good as hoped. Adpative tone took out all the warmth. Really needs a control for compression. Typical all-in-one product with too many compromises, results in so-so final product. Bummer. If you don't have much pro gear, may be quick way to get a few tools. Good for practice with limited PA or gig bag backup for times where house PA is junk. Not for regular professional use - better sound if you plug mic directly into a decent mixer. Will be returning it.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Mic Mechanic Reverb, Delay, & Pitch Correction Pedal:

    The Mic Mechanic was better than the Voice Live series, easier to run. The Slapback setting was my favorite, but when I engaged the tone/automatic EQ button, the strings on my guitar sounded like a rubberband warble...and they were running on separate outlets. When I disengaged the tone button, the amps sounded normal. This was the only discouraging thing, other than that, it does its job. Maybe it just wasn't suited for my smaller 16x14 music room.

      Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Mic Mechanic Reverb, Delay, & Pitch Correction Pedal:

      I ordered this for a friend but got to play with it a little. The effects are good, most anyone will find something they like.

      I really liked the "Tone" button, that made a difference. It seemed kind of subtle to me but others said they could hear it clearly and it added a lot.

      I tune to A-432 and the pitch correction is hard wired to A-440.

      I ended up ordering the TC Helicon VoiceLive Play for myself. For the additional money it's feature rich and offers much more bang for the buck. The pitch correction on this one can be adjusted to accommodate my A-432 tuning.

          Indeed, every claim is true. This is like a soundmand in a box. My bass player couldn't understand why my vocals were so clear and concise with pristine presence. The effects are easy breezy to dial in. I rarely use the pitch correction but I see where it can be useful. Tap tempo feature is easy to incorporate and usb connectivity on back. Very impressed with this simple yet innovative item.

            Very good Unit..Only one problem,most Phantom Power provides 48+ Volts but this unit does not.It only provides 24+ Volts.Thats why I had a hum when I used my Condencer Mic because it requires 48 volts.The Manufacture should say this in their Spec's but they didn't.Checked it with a volt meter.It's very misleading.So they should provide the information with who ever is selling the unit so the consumer will know.If I had known it I would not have bought it, but luckily I hooked it up to another Phantom Power unit that had 48+ so I could use it...

              Mic gain adjustment is on the side of the unit. My personal preference is it be on the "face" of the pedal.
              Used in a few performances so far and it delivers.
