When clean and clear vocals is not what you want.

VoiceTone X1 brings a modern “down and dirty” quality to live vocals with tinny megaphones and sharp vocal distortion effects under singers’ control.

X1 Factors:
3X Megaphone/Telephone effects
2 Distortion types
3 Amp effects
Drive control (modifies distortion)
Filter control (smart EQ band limiting)

Distortion is good
Whether you need to punctuate a word, phrase or an entire song with an effect, VoiceTone X1 intensifies your vocals with its wide range of filtered and distorted sounds. Simply load one of the pre-set styles, tap the footswitch and you’re ready to go. From there, the Drive and Filter controls can be modified to suit your voice or the song. Kick it on, kick it off, you’re in control!

As simple as plugging in your mic
Gaining access to the studio quality sounds and intelligent processing of VoiceTone singles is as simple as plugging in your mic and turning the effect on. Of course, you can always change the style or the amount of effect, but you shouldn’t need to unfold the manual unless you’re making a fire.

Strong family genes
Each VoiceTone single shares the same genes: a clean, quiet mic preamp that rivals high-end touring mixers, a die-cast metal case, rubberized no-slip base, studio quality analog to digital conversion, and the same quality processing you’d expect from our flagship vocal processors like VoiceLive 2.

All new Mic Control feature
The revolutionary and patent pending Mic Control circuit is built into each VoiceTone single pedal. This allows TC-Helicon’s MP-75 (our sku# H70845) Modern Performance Vocal microphone‘s thumb switch to turn your VoiceTone single’s effect on and off. Picture having the freedom to kick-in your vocal effect while working the stage, not gazing at your feet. It gets really cool when you chain multiple VoiceTone singles pedals together and control each one independently or turn them all on or off in combination.

                If anyone has tips on how to make this pedal work, please share!! I get a ton of feedback whenever I turn the levels up to a point where they make the effects worthwhile. Some of the effects seem unusable... The distortion creates crazy feedback even on the lowest settings. The pedal has been clipping my vocals, too. I really want to love this pedal, but it might not be worth the trouble.

                    great idea in concept - but the feedback renders the pedal useless

                    If your looking for that telephone booth / megaphone sound this pedal will do it. It says it can give you that hard driving sound other than the megaphone, but I'm not using that part of it, and what little I did I didn't care for it. I wanted it for live performance's, we wanted to do, "video killed the radio star", and "pumped up kicks", works well for both of those songs, I'm sure we'll find more to do. Easy to set, and it has the filter knob which allows you to adjust how much megaphone sound you want. Pretty basic pedal and gets right to the point, exactly what I was looking for.

                    Don't bother purchasing this unit if you intend it for live situations. Nothing but feedback even after all suggested adjustments. May work great for recording into a computer- pro tools, garage band ect, but putting it thru a PA system is a nightmare.After adjusting and finally eliminating the ear piercing feedback, the effect can not get loud enough to be heard over the 3 piece band - even at low volumes! Returning immediately.
