    TC-Helicon VoiceTone Synth HardTune and Vocoder Pedal Product Description

    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 effect with user-selectable key or instrument-sensing

    # Vocoder carrier is driven by internal voice-controlled synth or instrument input such as guitar

    # Transducer effects add megaphones, distortion and radio voices

    # All effects simultaneous

    # Tone feature smooths overall vocal sound with adaptive live engineer processing

    # Presets can be edited and stored

    # Instrument Thru allows normal instrument amplification

    # USB for connection to VoiceSupport application for updates, sounds, tips & tricks

    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.

    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.

    VoiceSupport is a Windows/Mac application that via USB connects your VoiceTone Synth with the support network. What can you expect?
