TC Helicon Play Electric Guitar Effects Processor

Powerful 3-Button Vocal and Guitar Effects Stompbox with Looper for Electric Guitar

Vocal FX Every Singer Deserves
Keep your vocals clean with a tight reverb and simple harmony or go all out with tasty delays, thick doubling, edgy HardTune, cool modulations, and raw distortions – the choice is yours. And don’t worry about setting the key for those harmonies; Play Electric follows your guitar chords automatically to keep things in tune and in time.

All-You-Can Eat Guitar FX
Whether you’re a shredder, blues picker or power soloist, Play Electric serves up tailor-made guitar FX from TC Electronic that’ll light every note on fire. Electrify your guitar with bestselling effects from Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus and Vortex Flanger TonePrint pedals. Cool compression, detune, tremolo, distortion/overdrive pedal emulations - and more - round out the sonic smorgasbord.

Premium Amp Emulations
Thrill the room with amp styles ranging from vintage British Clean to Spiky Metal lifted from their flagship processor VoiceLive 3. Dial in your specific tone with onboard style, drive, volume and 3-band tone stack controls.

Vocal FX + Guitar FX in One Pedal
  • Access your effects directly, choose the presets you want and find the styles you like.
  • Easily browse hundreds of preset sounds.
  • Add dazzling effects for the chorus, or strip it down for the verse, you decide!
  • Dedicated inputs and outputs for your voice and guitar – plus inputs for head phones, auxiliary devices, an expansion pedal and USB for updates and new presets.

Fully Loaded For Vocals
You have all you need for taking your vocals to the next level in live performance or recording. There are hundreds of presets inspired by artists and popular genres – with even more for free by downloading via VoiceSupport.

Vocal FX Highlights
  • 100s of Presets from the most popular styles
  • Adaptive Tone™ - your personal sound engineer
  • Easier than ever to create and personalize your sound
  • Practice favorite tracks with Vocal Cancel
  • Even more control with their mics and footswitches

Likely the most popular and impressive of their effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, they think you’ll never want to sing without it.

Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix. It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between. For more information on Doubling or “double tracking” see: Wikipedia Double Tracking.

Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats. Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom. Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. They call it HardTune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way. The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable. To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here. Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

Personal Sound Engineer - Included
Equipped with their trademark Adaptive Tone, Play Electric acts as your personal sound engineer providing the one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating. Your voice will always stand out in the mix.

Create & Personalize Your Sound - Easier Than Ever
When you choose an effect you’ll immediately see a unique icon making it easier to quickly find the sound you’re looking for. They call it icon based editing - it's intuitive and simple. We’ve also given you focused parameters for each of the main effects styles; you can set things like level, decay, drive, filter and more...

Practice Favorite Tracks with Vocal Cancel
Singing along is a great way to practice and perform. Plug in your MP3 player via the Aux In connector and use the Vocal Cancel feature to make your voice stand out over the vocals on the original track. You can also record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer and Daw.

Guitar FX for Every Style
Whether you’re up for Swampy Revival, Muddy Blues, 80s Rock-Man, Modern Ambient, or even something no-one’s heard yet, the range of styles and edit tweaks you can make will cover that tune perfectly —or draw your sonic line in the sand for someone else to cover.

Guitar FX Highlights
  • Legendary TC Electronic guitar effects
  • Guitar FX for every style
  • 25 amp styles from clean to mean
  • Extend your FX control with the optional Switch-3 and Switch-6 Footswitches

Legendary TC Electronic Guitar FX
How can you go wrong with sounds from the coolest, most popular stompboxes out there, the TC Electronic TonePrint line? Think edgy tap tempo delays, shimmering choruses and the thickest, richest, chewiest Reverb FX around.

Signal Fidelity
For the lightest load-in or smaller gigs, you can plug guitar and vocals direct to the PA/monitors. When you want your full-on guitar world, the dedicated guitar output ensures signal fidelity to your favorite amp or an FRFR (full range frequency response) cab or two - stereo is awesome.

Extend FX Control with Stompbox Expansion
Add a Switch-3 accessory pedal to your setup and extend your on-the-fly control of Play Electric’s features. Put a Boost pedal on the first switch, your favorite Delay on the second, and Tap Tempo on the third - or any custom combination of Guitar, Vocal FX (even Looping) that suits your performance needs. Want even more control? With Switch-6 so you can break out even more features; you can have a full guitar FX pedalboard mapped out on the extension pedal.

Make It a Hit
Hit is a performance-inspired feature for building intensity into any vocal performance. Press the Hit button to turn on multiple effects at once and create quick A/B scenes for each preset. Use it to add dazzling vocal effects for the chorus, or strip it down for the verse – it’s your call.

Loop Around
The VLoop performance looper allows you to create complete guitar and vocal loops for solo jamming or impressive layered live performances. VLoop is also handy for sound check: record a short phrase and walk out into the audience to check levels while your “virtual you” plays.

Intuitive Controls
Operating and navigating Play Electric is as straightforward as it gets. Use the Up/Down footswitches or central knob to easily browse factory presets, or use the Genre button to find styles that you like. Dedicated Vocal Fx and Guitar Fx buttons let you access effects directly, and the intuitive user interface makes editing simple and fast. Create your own library of presets with the Favorite feature for easy setlist recall.

In-ear Monitoring
Use the embedded RoomSense mics to pick up the sounds from the room, the stage, or the instruments around you to add ambiance to your personal headphone mix when performing or practicing. Or, you can use the Aux input to feed an external monitor signal straight into Play Electric (and turn the Aux signal off on the main output). Their handy Guitar & Headphone Cable facilitates inexpensive in-ear monitoring with a convenient twist: two signals, one cable.

More Control
Now you can control your effects with a mic engineered for the sonic realities of modern vocal performance. Add the New TC Helicon MP-76 with 4 user-assignable Mic Control™ buttons, the TC Helicon MP-75, or the Sennheiser e835 FX.

Dedicated I/O
Separate outputs for vocals and guitar make it painless for any sound engineer to mix the levels perfectly for your audience, or you can create your own custom panoramic stereo mix.

One Cable for Guitar and Headphones
TC Helicon’s custom designed Guitar & Headphone Cable facilitates in-ear monitoring and guitar connection in a single simple plug-and-play experience. You get ample freedom to move while you rock out in practice or performance.
