Extraordinary as this may sound in theory, does the Harmony G keep its promises in practice? That’s what we'll see in this test ... Read more…

zindo57's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" satisfactory"

TC-Helicon Harmony-G
Indeed programmable choirs, editable course
manual a bit obscure (and j'my know in manual)
non rackmount model (pedal with lots of beautiful red lights everywhere, visible on stage)
any digital
a microphone (stereo) input
a gnd to reduce hum
not yet midday

UTILIZATION

quite easy to configure
to configure the different voices and effects the manual is necessary even in concert

"Press the x button while holding enfoné the y button, wait 5 seconds, after flashing, wait for the double flash etc. ........" it's a little disconcerting

SOUND QUALITY

effective effects if you do not push too much or too synthetic

I put live to double my voice

not crash between the button that activates the effect and one that adds a 2nd voice choirs that

can it make the crawling condition in concert (I say this because I do guitar and vocals and sometimes before a chorus is not the time to turn off both the choir and press the distortion pedal or other)

I limit myself to one or two programmed effects and basta

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since I have but not all the time
sometimes I scratch my passes which lead choirs I sing lead and double his own choir .....

I know there are better on the market but the one I bought and I try to get the best.

what I like is that as it has a volume, you can adjust its power to counter pieces, I love aissi dubbing function (thickened voice)
least
the choir is granted on the connected guitar (must be on TC)
it can be used without connecting the guitar but this is a manipulation to memorize and not recorded on the pedal (thus again each time)

pretty decent price
tc; always very solid except the PSU has left me (the son have actually worn a bending force and hop over juice ...)

I'm not saying I buy this pedal the re specifically but it has served me well anyway ....

no box to store it, I keep it in its original plastic .......

le reverend's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

TC-Helicon Harmony-G
Little effect: several types of reverb and a slap, but not really buy it for that.
- A button "tone", which makes the voice more intelligible to the mix (subtle but if you believe, we feel)
- A button "double", which doubles your voice and thickens a little (not bad)
- And especially two harmony voices

XLR connectors for the voice, the guitar jack. Alim provided (12 V)

UTILIZATION

Relatively simple setup
Editing sounds is simple, if you know what you want, the manual is clear and not too big (but have to get the VF site TC if you do not know the language of Shakespeare)
If you put all the knobs in the center (with the exception of the gain of course), it makes well.

Its presets can Save (5 choices)

SOUND QUALITY

Realistic effects: means the harmonies (all adjustable in proportion / lead vocals)
I used auto mode, drive by the guitar and the least we can say is that it's easy to get a result.
Must not place everywhere, but it is related to harmony voices, not the beast itself.
There is a choice between two bands that can activate or not. Each harmony voice can be a fifth, the third, above or below the octave (one above and one below) and a basic votes, which contains the lowest note played to scratch (and quite original one)

The result is pretty convincing, if used sparingly (otherwise it drunk). The voices are quite natural

Importantly, the sound of the guitar is not changed, it just gets placed on the effects of the voice (except the harmony of course)

OVERALL OPINION

I use the last two weeks at home in solo and repeat with the group (where this is my scratch rhythm that is connected to the party scratching)

The sounds are good, and there is no chorus, it enhances well at the right time.
it's quite expensive (just under € 300 Pigale) but for what it does, it's really not bad.

A few caveats:
- You could have a separate volume for each harmony voice
- The rocker channel A / B button to use the same footing as the preset change, not too convenient, especially if it is fairly busy singing and playing the guitar at that time (easy to get lost a little , but hey, there are faster to where it is)
- We can only get into the presets (there are only 5, but a second button would have been cool)

Some impressions in no particular order
I used in rehearsal with the group by placing a TC-Voice Correct front, for less risk to sing false (because if the main voice is wrong, the other and there is also the cata). it was going rather well
From experience, we just moderately driver with a guitar crunch. May need to not push the saturation if you want the pedal recognition agreements.
You really have to ring major or minor scratches to the unambiguous (note agreements poorly made), otherwise the harmony part on the middle finger every time.
I have not yet found a way to make a true bypass, but I have read the doc about it (for the moment when the harmonies are off, we still have the effects and dubbing)
Must adapt his singing and avoid arrivals "soft" on the notes: If we do this, it really poo in harmonies.
Should trigger the effect after the approval of scratches, if the bug unclear on how to start and the result can be Heum ... creative?
It is necessarily less diverse than a real choir, because Harmony does not follow the lead voice (while singing a chorus if you can have a real independent partition). But otherwise it fulfills his contract rather flattering.

In the end, for now I'm pretty happy. Will do with the experience if small flats sharps may be one way or another ...

Bigwolf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

TC-Helicon Harmony-G
See Site TC helicon and other notices

UTILIZATION

Setup is super simple to use in auto mode. for the subtleties of tone and other settings manually reading the user guide (included in all major languages ​​in paper) is required. This one is clear and well done.
The grip is super fast for that basic notions of use of the audio stream.

SOUND QUALITY

The quality is purely bluffing. The harmonization is natural and pretty darn effective. The only default of this machine is to push me in a place everywhere.
The preamp is impeccable and the setting tone alone would justify the purchase of this pedal.

I tried to start a strip simplified with preamp, compressor and EQ (style Joemeek Three Q), and there, the bike does everything by itself (I was skeptical but objectively it works)

The effects are quite usable and the presets are well suited to voice (reverb, delay ...)

I use it with an SM57 on the voice (tone adjustment removes the effect of well near the mic and the sound was muffled because of the windscreen) and a Breedlove AD25/SM amplifier Ibanez Troubadour hacked with the logitech speakers refort serious (see my opinion on the amp for more information, I invite skeptics to try ...).

Once connected the pedal, the sound take another empleur, the voice is placed well, compression plays well and brings a real comfort. The "Double" is valuable for giving a voice thick (which helps me a lot ...).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few days and if I had to keep a pedal that would be this one. In view of the services it can render (DI, tuner, mixer voice / guitar, effects, tuning tone ...) function harmonizer parrait me almost anecdotal.
The harmonies are beautiful and natural (if used sparingly and well by applying the mix).

I did not try other products of this type but after much research on the net, watch videos, and business ammateurs of comparable products (in electro harmonix and digitech) this pedal parrait me well above the rate for a lot more than reasonable (less than € 200 on a site well-known German ....)
As you can see I would do this purchase again and again and again ... my only regret is not discovering that now.

thierry.delnatte's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

TC-Helicon Harmony-G
2 votes supplmentaires vocal harmony and guitar
Choice of main effects on the voice
Selection of 5 foot 2 effects rglages or alternate

UTILIZATION

Easy to use
No need of manual
guitar and microphone connections

He m Sometimes losing a rglage god thank you not yet on scene

SOUND QUALITY

I had 2 more devices
and J t happy as we make the first one because it was not powerful enough on the chorus.

But the second, it is enjoyable on some of rglages choir reveals rgl false or poorly on others.

This product may therefore be a lottery if it can be tried.

OVERALL OPINION

Then 8 or 9 if you can try but this note can get if you buy without trying the one you buy.

C is the Chinese hardware so I recommend it but only if you can test it.
