TC-Helicon press release (January 18, 2012)
Pristine vocal and guitar effects join forces in one compact, turbo-charged unit – TC-Helicon’s VoiceLive Play GTX takes the singing guitarist’s performance to the next level!
(Anaheim, Los Angeles, 18 January 2012) VoiceLive Play GTX is the world’s first multi-effects unit dedicated to rocking the world of the singing guitarist. Pro-level TC-Helicon effects and state-of-the-art harmony processing is just half the story. Play GTX is also packed with top-of-the-line guitar effects from TC Electronic. Quite simply, singing guitarists will feel like they have a dedicated vocal producer and an experienced guitar tech sitting inside the box.
For more than a decade, TC-Helicon has lived to serve the needs of singers, giving vocalists everywhere the opportunity to express themselves in new and amazing ways. Likewise, TC-Helicon’s sister company, TC Electronic, has provided the guitar world with first-class effects solutions for decades, with legendary units like Stereo Chorus Flanger, TC 2290 Digital Delay and G-System.
Sing. Play. Rock.
Rocking out with VoiceLive Play GTX has never been easier. More than 200 amazing presets, covering both vocal and guitar effects, can be browsed either by genre or effect type. Many of the factory presets are inspired by popular songs and artists, making users feel at home instantly – with more presets to download every month online. Every preset can be taken ‘over the top’ via the HIT button, which will add vocal effects on top of the base sound of each preset – perfect for making choruses stand out instantly! Also, selected presets can be stored as Favorites for super fast and easy access.
Electric or Acoustic Guitar? It’s All Covered!
The guitar effects run the gamut from pristine acoustic to raucous, distorted guitar tones and lots in between. TC Electronic reverbs, delays, modulation as well as distortion effects, putting the guitar in the zone for full vocal, guitar and looping production all in one footpedal. The vocal harmonies are also guided by the guitar for the ultimate freedom of expression.
Practicing Made Fun
Practice makes perfect, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t also be a lot of fun. VoiceLive Play GTX has a dedicated Practice mode that analyzes singing performance in real-time. Detailed pitch statistics will help spot strengths as well as point out areas that need more attention.
Singing and playing along with favorite songs is a fun and efficient way to practice. VoiceLive Play GTX accepts input from MP3 players and computers via an AUX In connector or USB. To make things even more fun, VoiceLive Play GTX has a Vocal Cancel feature that reduces the lead vocal level in a recording, so users can put themselves directly in their favorite artist’s shoes. Finally, VoiceLive Play GTX can even listen to the recording and generate harmonies based on the chord progressions in the track.
Guitar and Vocal Looping
VoiceLive Play GTX is the perfect tool for exploring the exciting world of combined voice and guitar looping. Loops can be created easily and on the spot, with or without effects and while changing presets. Add a TC-Helicon MP-75 microphone and the integrated Mic Control button can be used for full looping remote control.
Versatile Room Mics – A Good Set of Ears
VoiceLive Play GTX has two built in RoomSense microphones, which can be used in several ways. For example, they can add a touch of room ambience to a headphone or in-ear monitor mix. The RoomSense mics can also listen to music nearby, to automatically determine which key to set for Harmony and HardTune effects. Alternatively, they can even be used for recording to a computer via USB.
In short, singing guitarists everywhere should get ready to fall in love with their voices, while rocking out on their guitars!
