TC-Helicon decided to rationalize its vocal and guitar multi-effect processors and introduces at NAMM the successor of the VoiceLive Play GTX.

Following the Play Acoustic launched a few weeks ago, TC-Helicon debuts today in Nashville for Summer NAMM 2014 the Play Electric. This processor retains the main vocal and guitar processor functionality from the VoiceLive Play GTX, with 2-voice hamonizer, reverb, delay, doubling, modulation, etc. effects for singers and if you play electric guitar, it will drive the vocal harmonies. You also get amplifier models from the VoiceLive 3, overdrive/distortion, compression, and, a first, effects from the TonePrint Hall of Fame Reverb, Flashback Delay and Corona Chorus. The Play Electric ships with presets to help you get started.

Separate guitar and vocal outputs are available but you can also mix both signals and send the result to the stereo XLR output. Last, a true TC-Helicon also includes a looper, and you’ll find on this Play Electric the now famous VLoop.
