TC-Helicon Talkbox Synth Studio-Quality Vocal FX Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
With XLR I/O for your vocal mic, and 1/4" I/O for your guitar, the Talkbox Synth generates classic hose-in-the-mouth effects, vocoder-like textures and more!

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, these are the sounds that command attention at jams and gigs. Even when the effect is off, TALKBOX SYNTH can vastly improve your core vocal sound with Adaptive Tone, reverb 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 on-board 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 on-board 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.

Your 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! read more

A Helping Hand

We're all human and nobody hits every note perfectly. 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.

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: Runs on Batteries or Outlet Power

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.

This pedal is super cool and easy to use. Iā€™m not a guitar player but I am a synth player so I hook it up to my keyboard and sing away. The vocoder effects on here sound great. You can also add different presets via the tc helicon website.
