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.

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.

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:

I like this little piece of gear. It's great to rehearse at home with and will sound fine in a bar or club gig. It has a limited selection of reverbs but then any reverb only really has a few useful patches. I have a lot better preamps but this one sounds find powering an SM 58 in a small venue. Very solid, seems quite sturdy. The chromatic pitch correction used at 20% or under is very smooth and undetectable - helps your head wrap around the key very quickly and improves your accuracy. And it's red.

    If you use a high gain setting on your mic, you will need to isolate it from external sounds other than your voice. It will pick them up. Other than that it is very simple to use with great results. They built this unit just for me.

            This really works as advertised! I can dial in the amount of signal processing I want (delay, reverb, etc) without relying on anybody else to mess with the sound of my vocals. It also has a gain control to help boost my signal to the board which is very helpful if, like me, your vocals need a little more volume to cut through the mix.
            Its all contained in a metal case and it comes with AC adapter power, no batteries needed.

                Very cool effects pedal for a sax. Fattens up the tone and gives a great wet sound. Using delay and tone button.
                Super hot output to the board.

                The unit is built like a tank. The effects sound good. Very clean and quiet. You have to bend down and set the effects for different songs between songs. I leave the tone button in at all times. The gain knob on left side is left a 3rd of the way up. The more you use it the better you get at applying it to live performance situations. I like it a lot. Big bang for your money.

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

                I bought this Voice Mechanic to go with my BOSE L1 Compact System. All I really needed was a little bit of reverb for the voice channel which the L1 does not have built in. My singing pitch is really accurate so I did not need that function and the L1 does some EQ optimization on it's own, so I didn't need that.
                This Mic Mechanic works well in all respects except one: forget whistling. For some reason the purity of the sound a whistle makes messes up the DSP inside and the sound completely breaks up. I use a separate mic for songs where I have to whistle (which I don't do that much.).
                This is a hndy little unit for a solo performer which sets up in less than a minute and gives you what you need.

                  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.
