I've only had this unit a short while and there is still a lot I need to figure out BUT I can see a huge potential. The factory presets are, on the whole, over stated in their delivery but the effect is AWESOME! The harmonies that I fooled with so far could easily be used as an over dub for a vocal track with just a few adjustments. If you are close to the correct note with the pitch correction, you can't here it correct the note. The thickening feature is nice as well. Only time will tell for sure but I'm thinking if you invest enough time, this thing will be a KILLER EFFECT! Getting the right blend of lead over harmony will take some fiddling around with but once you get it dialed to your style its gonna make you smile!

Before I purchased the VoiceWorks, I did what I thought was my due diligence researching the pros and cons. Overall, the reviews appeared positive, aside from the difficulty in programming which I expect from most effects modules, so I bought it. What surprised me was how quickly the module failed. I had two modules in a row with operational defects. The first module made intermittent loud digital static popping sounds that would spike my VU meters. I tried balanced cables (although the user manual said regular mono cables should work fine), line conditioning to ensure steady power, different mics, even NO mic at all. Still popped. I returned the defective module in exchange for another VoiceWorks. The second unit failed within 5 minutes of use. This time, it simply froze; no sound, no ability to scroll through presets, all I could do was power down. Powering up again, it worked fine...for 5 minutes, then froze again. After the 2nd power down the unit screeched horribly loud static noise. Needless to say, I returned it. It would appear TC Helicon has some problems either with their chipsets or software that should be addressed immediately. Failures like this, especially during a recording session, is unacceptible. Sorry guys, I'm going with Digitech next.

Awsome, but not a plug in and go device

By Midian

from Seattle, WA

See all my reviews

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

Unbelievable quality and value!!! I will skip repeating all the fantastic features of this and offer some advice for those having trouble with it. As great as the VoiceWorks is, I found nearly all of the presets that ship with it completely useless. My suggestion is that if you buy a VoiceWorks, expect to spend a great deal of time dialing it in with patches that work for your personal style. For example, to start with, I suggest that you setup any global effects first. Then, work on banks of patches sorted by song key next. With a little investment of time tweaking along with a basic understanding of music theory, the VoiceWorks really can produce clean natural pitch correction, thickening, and harmonies. Though, as the negative reviews have pointed out, don?t expect to just plug it in and go. Still, after a year of serious use now, I sincerely rank the VoiceWorks as the best piece of music gear that I own. Buy one, spend some time with it, and I guarantee your vocals will sound 10 times better!

Amazing Vocals

Ask me a question

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

We read all the reviews before purchasing the Voiceworks for our all-digital studio. Anyone who complained about it obviously didn't know how to use it. This has been the most usefull tool for us and it sounds amazing. It first sounded like crap and it took an hour to figure out what it was.... shut off the EQ. After that it sounded warm and created perfect vocal tracks. I think that might have been the problems I had read about sounding crappy. If you purchase one I suggest you do the same when you first start out.

Active arranger/Recording engineer

By SB

from Bay Area, CA

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

Unreliable. Bought new to learn and test it having 2 weeks ahead of the scheduled session with my songwriter. Day 1 - impressive! Day 2 - unit is down: no response to data wheel changes. Workaround: use midi interface and control the unit from pc. Works fine, but strange. Tech support suggests to reload software or send it for repairs. Soft reloaded. No improvement. Day 3 - trying to use digital in/out to play with previously recorded tracks. Works for 5-10 minutes then totaly gets frozen. Just display turns on/off when power button is pressed. Day 4 - packed the unit and returned.

The only REAL voice processor in price range

By Luke-uy.x2

from Olympia WA, WA

See all my reviews

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

I've demoed these in the store, and next to the digitech, they rock. They really take your voice and produce a smooth creamy sound, filling it out and making it thick and nice.I haven't bought one yet because I don't want to pay for all the pitch correction and harmony stuff. I really wish they would release a stripped down model in the $*** range that focuses entirely on adding that sparkle and thickness to the voice. I've used pitch correction enough to know is WAY overrated...It can make somebody who can't sing sound decent, but run a spunky female vocalist through it who does a lot of expressive tone bending and vibrato and see how fast you turn her into a stepford wife. Its not worth the extra hundreds it adds to the price.

With features come paramaters

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

I am still figuring out all the bells and whistles this thing does. It definately does have a few good sounding reverbs and delays. Don't be misled. this product is extremely powerfull, but with features come paramaters. You can NOT just plug this thing in and turn it on, and expect it to sound good. The quick start guide gives a good idea of how to get the pitch correction sounding good with minimal programming. If you want good sounding harmonies, you really need to go in and manually program it to sing note x when you sing note y for the whole part which can be a drag, but once it's done, it sings realistic harmonies in tune, unlike your backup vocalist.

    I was suprised at how well this product worked. Some things you can't shine, but this product will help get as close as possible. However i would not suggest it for live applications. the interface is too simple, Which makes it slow to use.

    Great rack processor

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

    Great processor for recording or live music, though the voicelive is actually better for live music because the whole processor is at your feet. This is more of a professional processor - you can't be a dummy to operate it. I do agree with previous review that the manual is too limited. Sounds great though, you just need to figure out how to tweak it.

    Way too complicated!

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

    TC was nice company to deal with, but the manual for the product was small, short, and ridiculous for all the detailed information needed. It was very hard to get a clean "non-robotic" sound. I was very frustrated with it and returned it after a number of weeks, I was spending more time pushing buttons than playing music. It may be great for extra vocals in noisy bars but for recording it was not natural sounding enough.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

    Sorry to say but this unit is just to hard to operate. It has some nice features but its not simple to use. You should just be able to plug in a mike and dial up the song key and set the levels for each part. But you have to go into this whole process which slows down the creative and fun side of making music. This product was not made by a Musican.

    Great Hardware

    By PotOtO

    from Miami, FL

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

    I've been playing with this hardware for 2 months and it is unbelievable. You can get pretty natural voices using the MXL-992 included when you buy the VoiceWorks.It takes a couple of days to get familiar with all the options it have but once you get it, you'll have a nice and natural choir behind you.TIPS: Turn off the EQ in the setup and buy the foot switch pedal.If you are looking for a harmony machine with pitch correction, don't think it twice, GO FOR THIS!!

    Not for the Amateur

    By TG-TEUtk

    from Boston MA.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceWorks Vocal Processor:

    It's definitely a well thought out product except for the manual. After reading thru the entire manual, which is only 28 pages, I found that it tells alot of what it can do, but not "how" to do it. As a novice musician, I was expecting alot more procedures for the main controls of the unit. While I was setting it up and playing with all the different settings, I suddenly got lost and had to reset all the controls. It may be great for the profession musician that understands the technical theory of music, but for the amateur that wants to try to sound better, it's almost a waste of money.
