TC Helicon presents the Mic Mechanic, an astounding vocal effects pedal, with the ability to shape your vocals as if you had your own personal sound engineer with you at every gig. Mic Mechanic provides time-tested tone and effects you can take anywhere - and always sound your best.

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.

Sound your best with Adaptive Tone
Mic Mechanic automatically adjusts EQ, Compression, De-Essing and Gating - providing you with great tone all the time. Get a great vocal sound regardless of your sound system or sound tech.

FEATURES
  • 8 high quality Reverb and Echo presets
  • Separate Reverb (Room, Studio, Hall) and Delay (Tap and Slap), with combinations of both
  • Footswitch tapping can match echoes to song tempo
  • Tone button for Adaptive EQ, Compression, De-essing and Gating

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:

    This pedal does what is says and is great for live performances. It would be the perfect pedal if the autotune button controlled the amount of tone modification instead of autotuning. Still after looking around a lot this is the closest I could find to what I wanted.

        Excellent reverb/echo Fx. Really adds punch to lead vocals. Mild pitch corrector is a nice feature too. Very easy to use. Definitely a great addition!

        I read the negative review and all I can say is.......what are you doing whistling a song??? What a weirdo! Lol. The unit works great! I use it in my studio and in live performances......no problems! I like all the settings and use the slap back on lead vocals and regular setting on background harmony.....I use a Tascam 32 track recorder and what I,like about this unit is I don't have to wade through so many other effects in the Tascam to get to the ones I use the most cause.....they are at my fingertips in this unit!! Saves lots of time during a session!! Great company and great product!! Thanks! Peter from NY

        My wife, a professional singer likes reverb. With this pedal I can add reverb to amps and powered speakers that have no effects loop. The reverb choices are limited - only three, but they sound good. The best feature is XLR in and outs.

            This thing is pretty neat. I've been using it for about 4 months now, and it works great. It is a solid unit, that is capable of taking abuse. The delay function works splendid and the pitch correction is great. If you crank the pitch correction all the way up you get that robotic auto-tune sound, but, i crank it between 1/4 and 1/2, and it works perfect for the end of a set when your voice starts to get kind of weak. Definitely a must have.

              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.
