    Works perfect

    I was surprised that this device worked so well. My main goal was to use it for minor pitch correction and it does. It messed me up for a while hearing a chorus effect through the wedges (I use an inner ear monitor system, and got the same effect). However, listen to the vocal channel through the front of house speaker and the signal was great and on pitch. I especially like the fact that I can plug my guitar in it. I plan to get three more for our church so that all the singers are connected and have some help on days when we may not be doing well ( for none reason or another). The other features do work as well (hard tune and gender shifter), yet I have had no application for them. So this rating does not include features.

    Finaly TC made an autotune with a keys function. Who wants to sing flat notes perfectly, which a chromatic autotune lets you? I have the tone correction knop at 1-2'o'clock which gives a pretty hard correction but without the t-painish computerish shifts when you move from tone to tone. It's alot like Donkey Boy - 'city boy' in this position. I always use the keys function. The gender knob is not a 'need to have' but a 'nice to have'.

    Voicetone helps

    I have never been a good singer, but this pedal helps a lot. The robot settings will not see much use, but tge real world pitch correction works well. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it couldn't magically correct all my sour notes. Recommended!

    Awesome Pedal

    Great piece of gear! Does everything it is supposed to very well! We use it on stage and there is no latency and sounds natural. $130 very well spent!

    VoiceTone Greatness

    This pedal worked great as a vocal processor to get that sought-after "auto-tune" sound in a live situation. It is built well and when turned to the "hard" setting it really performs well. Its only drawback is that since the signal is going through so much processing it seems to add a slight delay to the sound. Nothing major but if you are listening carefully in a live situation you may hear it. But if you use it in a recording situation you can time correct that in post.

    This actually does the "auto tune" function very nicely and simply! I tried the more expensive Tascam unit that came with the Antares Auto Tune. It actually did not perform the pitch changing function. According to their tech support, it is missing a feature to do that, ironically. You will love this TC unit. Clean preamp! The footswitch is nice as well. If you buy the Tascam unit you will have to buy a seperate pedal for a unit that does not do what this does. If you do not need mic modeling and all that of the Tascam this is it!

    This is a great product

    I am really blown away with the harmony on this inexpensive foot pedal. When I use it my dog thinks someone is in the room with me. I went from a reasonable singer to the Eagles instantly. We have had an expensive device at out church for years and this machine blows it away. I can't wait to use it live.

    Great addition

    It's great to have a pitch correction unit unto itself. Usually it is part of an EQ setup. We were just looking for some minor pitch correction in our vocals and we have EQ and reverb in the rack. Out of the box it is plug and play and when set on a low to mid level the pitch correction does exactly what is asked. We have a majority of three part vocals and when singing a full set these units keep us right on track. We don’t use the full “Cher” effect at all and haven’t had much use for the gender adjustment, though it does allow us to sing like the chipmunks or Darth Vader. Another great aspect is being able to run the guitar signal through the unit so it automatically recognizes the key. Having to set the key for each song would be a real pain. The only place we found it lacking was in singing a 3 part acapella song. Even setting the units to the correct key, they tended to throw us off a bit, as if trying to figure out what we were doing. So there are a couple of songs where we just turn them off. But overall we are very satisfied with these units. Price is good and the units seem very durable.

    Sorry, but it's a disappointment. I experimented extensively with the settings but I get nothing but a tremolo or "warble" effect. It's not a pitch corrector; more of a pitch camoflage. I have to wonder about the positive reviews.
