TC-Helicon Announces the New VoiceLive Play GTX

VoiceLive Play GTX is the first multi-effects unit dedicated to the singing guitarist.

Anaheim, CA (January 18, 2012) -- VoiceLive Play GTX is the first multi-effects unit dedicated to the singing guitarist. Pro-level TC-Helicon effects and harmony processing is just half the story. Play GTX is also packed with top-of-the-line guitar effects from TC Electronic.

Rocking out with VoiceLive Play GTX has never been easier. More than 200 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 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. Also, selected presets can be stored as Favorites for fast and easy access.

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.

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.

VoiceLive Play GTX accepts input from MP3 players and computers via an AUX In connector or USB. It also 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, it can even listen to the recording and generate harmonies based on the chord progressions in the track.

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.

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.
