    A portable, high-quality vocoder and HardTune pitch shifting effect.

    Finally, the effects you've heard on chart-topping tracks from artists pushing the envelope of vocal sounds are available in a pedal. VoiceTone Synth brings together a collection of exotic and current sonic mayhem including jagged HardTune effects, a MassiveBand Vocoder with voice-controlled synth and vocal distortion and megaphone effects. Now vocalists and anyone looking to add a modern edge to their live performances and studio productions can dial-in these effects instantly with the press of a footswitch.

    HardTune
    The jagged, stair-stepped vocal sound of key-based hard tuning is everywhere in contemporary R&B, Hip Hop and Electronica. This feature has eluded the majority of performing musicians until VoiceTone Synth came along. Now musicians can produce this effect live by simply recalling a preset and hitting the 'On' button. Easy key input methods include auto-instrument sensing or pushbuttons with a clear display of the current key. Other features of the HardTune effect include dry voice mixing, octave shift and character modification.

    Vocoder
    The vocoder in VoiceTone Synth is called 'Massive-Band' for a reason. It effectively scales resolution from ultra-clearly-enunciated Robot voices to the sound of the classic, analog low-band-count vocoders we all know and love. The benefit is that, while typical vocoders require a lot of pre-processing like distortion and EQ to hear the effect properly, with the VoiceTone Synth vocoder effect you can input signals such as clean acoustic guitar and vocode perfectly for sounds that until now have been impossible to achieve.

    Voice-controlled Synth
    The Vocoder also features a voice-controlled synth mode—considered by many as the Holy Grail for vocoding. Prior to VoiceTone Synth, vocoding required your voice (the exciter), and an instrument input (the carrier) to make cool vocoded sounds. Of course VoiceTone Synth supports the dual input method, but for artists who don't have another instrument or don't play one, VoiceTone Synth can generate a synth part directly from your vocal and vocode that. The result? Generated vocoder parts with one input: your voice.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Synth HardTune & Vocoder Pedal:

    I have had this a little under two years and its starting to give me problems. the 'hard tune' sometimes cuts out and i have to restart the device to get it working. and now its starting to get a crackling noise in the the 'hard tune' and somewhat in the 'vocoder' sections of this device. i would say it is quite awesome and exactly what i wanted. but my suggestion to all future buyers is to get one with an extended warranty. especially if you live outside of europe. this company being based over the pond makes it quite trouble some to get it fixed. good luck buying!!

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceTone Synth HardTune & Vocoder Pedal:

    This is a great product for the homestudio and jaming. Not sure about the dependability have only had it 6 mo. The best way to describe it is it can take my singing voice, that has been compared to a bullfrog being squished,and transform it to something not terrable almost plesant. I have hooked it into a EH voicebox and this adds more depth ,reverb,and multiple harmonies to actualy make me sound good !!
