TC-Helicon Debuts Guitar-To-Midi Pedal For Controlling Vocal Harmony Processors [ Musikmesse 2007 ]

United States
Risskov, Denmark — March 27th 2007 — Acknowledging the limited options available for guitar players to easily and freely control vocal harmony processors, TC-Helicon announces HarmonyControl|Guitar, a revolutionarily simple pedal that lets guitarists control their vocal harmonies real time. The plug-and-play accessory is compatible with all TC-Helicon vocal harmony products and will also work with many other manufacturers” harmony products that support MIDI input. HarmonyControl will be available in summer 2007 and retail for EUR 190 excl. VAT

The HarmonyControl pedal is easily integrated into a performance setup. A guitar is plugged into HarmonyControl. A guitar output allows it to integrate with other guitar pedals or an amplifier. A MIDI cable is connected between HarmonyControl and a harmony processor. With these connections made, the guitar sound controls the harmony voices.

The patent pending algorithms in HarmonyControl analyze a guitar signal and produce MIDI note and control information specific to vocal harmony processors. Guitarists have the freedom to play as they normally would, while benefiting from musically correct harmonies from their MIDI-equipped vocal processor. Performing musicians who use TC-Helicon VoiceLive, VoiceWorks or VoiceWorksPlus get further harmony benefits through HarmonyControl’s unique control of Scale mode presets. A song’s key can be set from the guitar. If the musician doesn’t know the key, they can play the song and the correct key will be intelligently selected. Scale mode’s parallel harmonies are preserved as chord changes are sensed in real-time so there is no need for song stepping or programming. The product is compatible with TC-Helicon vocal harmony products as well as older Vocalist® products with MIDI inputs.
