What every singer needs.
With Mic Mechanic you get tried and true combinations of the Reverbs and Delays from TC Helicon's renowned VoiceLive series. These are classic sounds designed to enhance and complement the natural timbre of your voice, making Mic Mechanic the direct response to singers who say "I don't want to change my voice. I just want to sound great".

Professional Reverb, simply controlled.
Reverb is the essential vocal effect, loved by all singers and used in practically every venue and recording studio in the world. Picked from the flagship VoiceLive series, the lush Reverbs in Mic Mechanic surround your voice with a great sense of space - small or large.

Delay. Delay. And Tap
From short slapback echoes to long repeating phrases, Delay adds that special "something" to your vocal sound. Use the Tap Tempo feature and time the delays to match your music perfectly.

Perfectly pitched
Auto Chromatic Pitch Correction gently guides you towards the "true" note you're singing. When you're just a bit flat or sharp, Mic Mechanic steps in and gives you a little - or a large - nudge in the right direction. It can be transparent or used as an effect, whichever you like.

I have a Voicelive that I bought 7 or 8 years ago. I also own many, many other things with lots of knobs and lights and....... where was I going with this.... oh ya... I think I may have ADHD. My Voicelive is great, but I could not seem to focus long enough to figure out how to maintain the pristine subtle qualities of my amazing voice as it worked its way through all the fancy electronics of my Voicelive. The harmonies and affects are very cool, but my lead vocals always seemed to get a little muddled..... somewhere, in there...... But not anymore! There is a mic thru on my voicelive which I send directly into my mic mechanic, now my vocals punch through clear as a bell (imagine Ronny James Dio crossed with Celine Dion and.... a blast of pure ice crystals..... experienced within mega rock High Definition power pixel matrix that has probably not even been invented yet, ya..... like that) I hooked an old Boss volume pedal to the voice live's expression pedal jack, and now when the chorus hits and I want to fatten up my sound or bring in harmonies, I slide them in with the pedal. My front of house mix has three vocal sends: I run my voicelive stereo in the mix (pan about 10:00 L - 2:00 R) and run my mic mechanic send straight up the middle. I cannot express.... how freakin' HUGE and clear my vocals are. Yes I would recommend this thang to anyone who wants a simple ADHD proof magic box that will make you sound really, really awesome..... well, you probably have to KINDA know how to sing and stuff, but.... I dunno... maybe this magic little box will help all those really bad karaoke singers and people like my probably tone-deaf girlfriend who absolutely sucks. Guess I'll put my mic in front of her face and see what she can do with it.

I gig once a week year round and travel to many venues. Here's the problem with this pedal as I see it. When I whistle softly into the mic the unit creates a loud zippering digital robot sound. And that's with all processing off. Normal singing is fine but I can't use something that will distort like this. Yes, I adjusted the input correctly. I returned it and tried a second one with the same result. This is clearly a design defect. It's hard to believe TCHelicon didn't see this issue.
I can't recommend this to a professional singer. I will continue shopping for s simple and reliable floor pedal for my vocals.
Just a side note: for years I plugged a mic into a Boss DD3, using an inline transformer. The result was satisfactory and it NEVER distorted even with LOUD input.

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

    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.

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

      I am a full time professional musician. I have used the Mic Mechanic for about two years and have been very pleased with its performance. The effects, tone and a little bit of pitch correction give just the right polish to my live vocals. But if you suck at singing, this isn't going to make you an American Idol. It's interesting to me that the complaints from reviewers on here are from ONE guy who had feedback problems (probably didn't have the gain set correctly), a couple of jokers who complained that they can't whistle into it, and another dude who claims that it somehow made his guitar strings sound like rubber bands. How he managed that is beyond me. Look, if you want to beef up your vocals, get this thing and give it a try. A ton of people are really happy with it. If you're not, return it and get something else.

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

        We've just recently switched to IEM's, which made us very aware of how well our vocal mics picked up everything on stage, and how muddy this made everything else in our In Ears. I knew that what I needed was a monster rack of vocal effects that was well out of our budget, but then I saw this guy, and figured, "hey that's not a bad price, why not." And I have to say that it does everything it advertises, and it does it well. Don't let the videos fool you. It may not seem like it's doing anything special, but when you add in guitars, bass, drums, and synths it becomes very clear how much it does. And the best part is that it does it all automatically, so you don't have to be an engineer to make this guy work. Press one button, get your levels right, so that your not killing your mixer, or your ears, and you get clearer, more defined vocals!

          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.

This pedal bought it back close to where it was 20 years ago . I'm no professional by no means , But I'm good at what I do..lol . just buy it, if you don't like it return it

                This gear is quality stuff. I met one of their reps using it in live performance and spent alot of time going over the functions. It is simple and does exactly what is supposed to do. If you are only looking for reverb abd delay functions with some dialed in voice correction this is it!
                But the instructions are a disgrace to the product. Printed so small that I literally had to use a magnifying glass to read it. A shame because that kind if marketing raises suspicions about the quality of the product. Too good a product to skimp on the final step between the customer. Works Great!

                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...
