The VoiceTone Create XT from TC Helicon is a hit-producer-in-a-pedal. Now you can get those "ear candy" vocal effects that producers call on every day to create hit tracks. VoiceTone Create XT vocal effect processor improves on the original Create by incorporating HardTune (used by artists such as T-Pain and Kanye West) and the rich, front-of-house quality reverb from its famous big brother, VoiceLive 2. The TC Helicon Create XT vocal processor is now easier to use with individual on/off buttons for the effects blocks, more onboard editing, an input for an optional Switch3 footswitch if you prefer a vocal effects pedal, and much more!
Vastly superior to the reverb effect found in stomp boxes and in all-in-one mixers that do little more than add mud to your vocals, the TC Helicon Create XT's high-end reverb algorithm comes from TC Electronic, a company with a long and successful history in reverb processing.
Choosing your sound
When it's time to pick your vocal effects, the TC Helicon Create XT effect processor offers you several routes to define your sound. First of all, the 10 factory presets give you a wide range of useful effects with each preset having A and B settings that can be easily toggled when needed. To customize your sound, the vocal effect processor's 100 styles offer preprogrammed effect chains with a wide range of subtle to insane effects that can be made into easily accessible presets. Making things easier is the way in which the 100 styles are organized: by effects category and by musical genre. If you are comfortable with effects terminology, the TC Helicon vocal processor lets you browse by category. If you prefer, however, you can browse the genres such as Pop/R&B, Rock/Metal, Oldies, Jazz/Ballad, and Electronic.
Even more sonic possibilities are offered when you consider that each style has effects enabled and others disabled. The fun begins when you experiment with turning effect blocks on and off with the front panel buttons. As a bonus, you can add the optional Switch3 footswitch to extend your effects switching capabilities in performance.
Added tweak-ability control features six parameters to allow finer control of your sound. The TC Helicon VoiceTone Create XT pedal's four Effect On/Off buttons allow you to engage effects individually or as a group. A low-noise XLR mic input with phantom power is the ideal choice for condenser mics. You can also use the pedal input to connect an optional Switch 3 footswitch for individual effect block on/off switching. The outputs are quite flexible. Choose Mono+dry or stereo XLR balanced outputs. An included USB lets you connect to VoiceSupport, an application that delivers updates, new sounds, tips, and tricks exclusively for the VoiceTone vocal effects system.

The Telicon Voice Tone Create XT is easy to use with more onboard editing. It has a rich reverb. the processor offers several routes to define your sound. It gives you a wide range of useful effects. It is great soundingwith cool vocal effects with a vocal effect pedal. It is a great buy.
I have taken the VoiceCreate and selected my favorites in order of contemporary (i.e. fast tempo / short verb tail,tap delay, etc. in position 1 A & B, then in 2 A & B I use a little larger rooms, in position 3 A & B I use mid-tempo mid-sized verb length rooms, all the way up to large halls for ballads on the last presets. This is extremely versatile and can give you a fully produced vocal sound. As far as another person posted getting "feedback" it's all in how you set-up your gain structure and mix of the unit so you don't get feedback. It has nothing to do with the TC Helicon. I highly recommend this processor!
My band plays out quite a bit and some of the venues we play don't provide much in regards to a soundcheck or even a skilled soundman. I bought this so I could easily work my own vocal sound from the stage. It provides plenty of options and the ability to manipulate then and change presets relatively easily. The main problem however is feedback. Because if it's sensitivity I've resorted to using this only for practices and now need to find a different solution for live shows.
I use this to get those voice tones that the Beatles used on their recordings. Happy to say I sound just like John on I Am The Walrus.
Great vocal processor for live application or recording. I have been very impressed with the reverbs and delays on this unit.
Ok, my first thought when I pulled this out of the box was "Lots of buttons :)" but it has more than just that. Once I hooked it up and started playing with the effects, mods, and delays etc... It was like spending hours receding voice takes in one. This can turn your voice into a superchorus just by yourself or even have it rev louder as it delays the sound of your voice making it sound as though you're in an arena. I thought the functionability of the buttons could have been a lot better. But with so many options and parameters to tweak it's an effects stackers dream. I also noted it worked very well with a guitar particularly when using a glass slide. I've also run my entire loop through this then through another delay pedal and you can come up with almost anything under the sun. It'll help pull your voice into key or stretch and distort it as far out as you want. Overall a great value and still one of my most used vocal effects processors.
I have found myself doing a lot of one-man acoustic gigs for small clubs, restaurants, and private parties. In those situations, variety is the name of the game - you gotta play a little of everything for everybody! That's where the TC Helicon CREATE pedal comes in - it gives me all the vocal sounds I need quickly, right at my feet. I can go from a warm slap-back echo for a 50s rock-n-roll tune, straight into a polished slick sounding long-delay sound for a modern pop tune[and everything in between]all within one click from my boot. Even when I do play bigger venues through huge house PA's, the Create pedal still goes in front of my mic so that I'M in control of my vocal sound, not the front-of-house soundguy!! The TC Helicon CREATE pedal does everything you could possibly need, and having the tap-tempo at your disposal is great!! It's built like a tank, always fires right up, and is ready to go everytime I plug in. If it were lost or stolen, I would RUN to the nearest GC to buy another one. AWESOME!!
Great vocal effects. The unit is very solid. The sound is great, fantastic for stage or studio. The tone button is incredible. I love it and would buy it again.
TC Helicon makes some of the best vocal effects out there. This unit is great just for the reverb and the micro chorus alone. The tone button automatically adjusts the EQ and other settings to make you sound better. I started with a couple of the different TC Helicon stomp boxes and then graduated to the VoiceLive2, which has the doubler and harmonizer as well. This unit is great if you're on a budget, but if you're going to buy 3 of them, you might as well buy the VoiceLive2 for about the same amount of money $799. If you only have enough money for one TC Helicon stomp box, I recommend this one over the others.
