TC Helicon Talkbox Synth

Studio-quality stompbox for guitar talkbox effects and vocal tone polishing
MFR# 996016001

Product Description

The TC Helicon Talkbox Synth offers classic and new sounds to the guitarist’s arsenal. From instantly recognizable talkbox “hose-in-the-mouth” sounds to wonderfully electronic “talking robot” effects, imagine yourself commanding attention at jams and gigs. Even when the effect is off, Talkbox Synth can vastly improve your core vocal sound with Adaptive Tone, studio-grade reverbs and pitch correction.

The Right Connections

Classic talkbox effects have always come through a PA, not a guitar amp, so Talkbox Synth is the ideal way to bridge that gap. The XLR output of Talkbox Synth sends your polished vocal mic output to the PA while also outputting the onboard effects when you hit the foot switch. The guitar input and output circuitry is designed to preserve your precious guitar tone as it passes to your pedals and amplifier.

Guitar to Synth Transformed

The onboard synthesizer is triggered by your single note guitar playing and can translate your solos and licks into something even a skilled keyboardist would marvel at. The nuances of finger vibrato combined with your vocal expression take your guitar solos and licks from earthbound to mile high in an instant.

Personal Sound Tech

Adaptive EQ (equalization), compression, de-ess, and gate automatically control the timbre and shape of your vocal, ensuring that every note you sing is clean and clear. Because when the crowd can hear what you’re singing, they can sing along and there is nothing is better than that!

A Helping Hand

We’re all human and nobody hits every note perfectly. Nobody. With transparent auto-chromatic pitch correction, we nudge your pitch to the nearest semitone. It won’t turn a potato into a spaceship, but it can give you a little support when you need it most.

Ease of Use

You’re a singer first and foremost, so getting knee-deep in technology probably isn’t what your gig calls for. That’s why Talkbox Synth automatically sets your mic gain to the optimal level, allowing you to concentrate on giving your best performance – night after night.

Power Options

Talkbox Synth gives you the option of either plug-in power via the optional POWERPLUG 9V adapter – or 4x AA battery operation for those occasions when you’re just doing a short set, or house power isn’t readily available

Your Best Performance

Whether you’re playing at the local tavern or at a huge festival, your vocals always deserve special attention. Talkbox Synth gives you the tools to always sound your best with talkbox and synth effects, state-of-the-art reverb, and Adaptive Tone – all in an ultra-simple stompbox designed to elevate your performance to the next level. Experience Talkbox Synth at your local TC HELICON dealer, or get yours online today.

Studio Grade Reverb

Reverb simulates a physical space, allowing your voice to fit into the music perfectly. Whether it’s the ambiance of a small room, or the massive reverberation of a concert hall, Talkbox Synth's vocally tuned reverb always brings out the best in your voice.

Roam Around

Sometimes it’s just not feasible to find a power outlet when you’re performing. That doesn’t mean you should be without your Talkbox Synth! It can be powered by 4 AA batteries (not included) in addition to the optional 9V adapter.

“It’s a blessing to have something so simple, compact, capable and affordable; i’m not talking money, i’m talking massive quality that isn’t demanding on the user.”

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
