NAMM 2012: VoiceLive Play is a new Vocal Multi Effects Pedal for Singers

TC-Helicon launches their latest vocal effects pedal at Winter NAMM 2012.

As you can see from the video, the new VoiceLive Play has a range of effects including Harmonizing, Reverb, Looping, EQ, Compression, De-ess, Gate and Pitch Correction, and more.

One of the interesting features is that it automatically detects the key you're playing in ad adjusts the harmonies automatically.


This is a handy way to take control of your own vocal effects, especially if you play gigs without a sound engineer. And the practice mode and looping makes it suitable for rehearsing your harmonies on your own.

VoiceLive Play also takes its cues from the room around it by listening through the built in microphone on each side panel. By using this room monitoring it can add a touch of room ambience that will make your voice more natural and comfortable when using headphones. The built-in microphones can also be used for picking up room sound and base the harmonies generated on the chords of an acoustic guitar or other instrument.

The mics can also be used for recording when you hook the unit up to a computer via the USB port.

  • Complete Vocal Path – Tone, Harmony, HardTune, Reverb, Double and more
