Product Description

Now you can get those "ear candy" vocal effects that producers call on every day to create hit tracks. VoiceTone Create XT improves on the original Create by incorporating HardTune (used by artists such as T-Pain and Kanye West) and the rich, front-of-house quality reverb from its famous big brother, VoiceLive 2. They've also made Create XT easier to use with individual on/off buttons for the effects blocks, new tweak controls, an input for an optional Switch3 footswitch and more.

New Features in Create XT
A wealth of new features makes Create XT a better-sounding and easier-to-use vocal effect foot pedal.

- Front-of-house-quality reverb algorithm from VoiceLive 2
- HardTune for live, auto-tuned vocal effects
- The Tone button that polishes and smoothes vocals with adaptive Live Engineer Effects
- Dedicated effect block on/off buttons for easy preset customizing
- Selectable Tweak parameters give you access to the important elements in the current sound
- USB connection for easy software updates, tips, and preset backup using the included VoiceSupport application
- Easy selection of HardTune scale & key from a standing position
- Pedal input that accepts TC Helicon three button footswitch for more creative performances

Standard Features
All the features that made the original Create such a success.

- Complete pre-programmed effect chains
- 100 factory styles are available to customize presets
- Edit and store up to 10 presets, each with an A or B option
- Lush reverb effects include halls, rooms, plates, spring, ambience
- Various tempo-controlled delay effects including slap, echo, ping pong, multitap
- Modulation effects include detune, chorus, flange, doubling, rotor and more
- Transducer effects include popular megaphone, distortion and effect filters
- Flexible effects switching methods
- XLR mic input and XLR output in stereo or mono
- Clean, low noise, studio quality mic preamp with phantom power

Rich Reverb
Vastly superior to the reverb effect found in stomp boxes and in all-in-one mixers that do little more than add mud to your vocals, Create XT's high end reverb algorithm comes from TC Electronic, a company with a long and successful history in reverb processing. Stepping on the On button will give you the sense of space that adds warmth to your vocal whether you've chosen a long tail for a ballad or a shorter one for an uptempo song.

Choosing Your Sound
When it's time to pick your vocal effects, Create XT offers you several routes to define your sound. First of all, the 10 factory presets give you a wide range of useful effects with each preset having A and B settings that can be easily toggled when needed. To customize your sound, the 100 styles offer pre-programmed effect chains with a wide range of subtle to insane effects that can be made into easily accessible presets. Making things easier is the way in which the 100 styles are organized: by effects category and by musical genre. If you are comfortable with effects terminology, you can browse by category but if you prefer, you can browse the genres such as Pop/R&B, Rock/Metal, Oldies, Jazz/Ballad and Electronic.

Even more sonic possibilities are offered when you consider that each style has effects enabled and others disabled. The fun begins when you experiment with turning effect blocks on and off with the front panel buttons. As a bonus, you can add the optional Switch3 footswitch to extend your effects switching capabilities in performance.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gives my vocals a pro edge."
Sound: THe quality of the effects are very good. I like the reverbs and the Tone effect makes an immediate positive difference on the vocal sound. On the negative side, t took me quite a while to figure out how to access all the presets. The only place in the manual that it tells you is in the description of the all the buttons. This could be corrected SO EASILY, by just a few sentences, starting with TO ACCESS THE PRESETS IN THE LIST ON PAGE __HOLD DOWN THE TWEAK BUTTON FOR @ SECONDS, then press the tweak button to scroll through the presets.(or something like that. Feature: i like the fact there is limited ability to adjust the effects, it makes it hard to make a bad sound. i guess an on off switch would be nice, but its not essential. it also doesn't seem fair that you have to buy the 3 switch accessory to be able to turn on and off the effects within a preset. they should just throw that in. Quality: seems to be a very sturdy yet compact unit. The Wow Factor: its a big plus to have studio quality effects in a live setting Overall: i like it

Overall: I purchased this foot pedal to help me with my pitch correction in church for praise & worship. I'm glad I did. The only thing is that the manual is not very detailed and doesn't tell you exactly how get the presets in the manual to work.
