  • Play Acoustic combines all the things you need to make a live acoustic performance shine: lavish vocal sounds, perfect backing harmonies, best-selling guitar effects, and unique processing that makes your six-string sing – in perfect harmony with your voice.

    Features:

    • Professional vocal effects and tone
    • Natural sounding vocal harmonies guided by your guitar
    • Guitar FX styles from TC Electronic®
    • BodyRez™ Filtering and Onboard EQ and DI for impeccable acoustic guitar tone
    • Version 1.2 Firmware offers a TC guitar delay plus per preset Guitar FX storage


    WHAT EVERY SINGER WANTS
    Keep your vocals clean with a tight reverb or simple harmony – or go all out with tasty delays, thick doubling, edgy hardtuning, cool modulations, and raw distortions. The choice is yours with hundreds of presets from the most popular styles.

    ACOUSTIC ALCHEMY
    Play Acoustic treats your guitar with the respect it deserves. Tailor-made guitar FX from TC Electronic add a sweet touch of magic and our new BodyRez™ gives you a fuller, acoustic tone when you’re playing through a PA.

    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.

    EASIER THAN EVER TO PERSONALIZE YOUR SOUND
    When you choose an effect you’ll immediately see a unique image making it easier to quickly find the sound you’re looking for. 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.

    INTUITIVE CONTROLS
    Navigating Play Acoustic 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.

    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.

    IN-EAR MONITORING GETS PERSONAL
    The embedded RoomSenseTM mics pick up sound from the room, the stage, or the instruments around you to add ambience 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 Acoustic (and turn the AUX signal off the main output).

    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.

    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 soundcheck: record a short phrase and walk out into the audience to check levels while your “virtual you” plays!

    MORE MIC, MORE CONTROL
    Now you can control your effects from 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.

    EXTEND FX CONTROL WITH STOMPBOX EXPANSION
    Add a Switch-3 accessory pedal to extend your on-the-fly control. 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 and Vocal effects that suits your performance needs.

    FREE PRESET DOWNLOADS
    Fire up our VoiceSupport app for access to hundreds of additional song and effects based presets as well as firmware updates and the latest news. All you need is a Mac or Windows computer with a USB input.
