“You can dial in a fantastic guitar sound, fill a room with amazing vocal effects and backing harmonies, and even loop musical phrases. This simple stomp box contains some serious technology in an easy-to-use platform.”

-Cult of Mac

Harmony
Harmony

Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

For more information on harmony and musical theory, check out: Wikipedia Harmony

Our scale chart, showing harmony notes created from an input note, can be found here: TC-H Harmony Chart

Double
Double

Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix. It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

For more information on Doubling or “double tracking” see: Wikipedia Double Tracking

Delay
Delay

Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats. Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Delay

Reverb
Reverb

Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom. Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

HardTune
HardTune

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it HardTune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way. The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable. To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Transducer
Transducer

Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here. Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

For more information on Transducers see: Wikipedia Transducer and Distortion: Wikipedia Distortion

µMod
µMod

µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

For more information on Chorus see: Wikipedia Chorus Effect and Wikipedia Flanging Effect

Natural Harmony
Natural Harmony

You have a tireless two-singer backing group which sounds more realistic than ever with improved portamento and humanization on our already renowned harmony effects. And don’t worry about setting the key: Play Acoustic follows your guitar chords automatically for harmonies that stay in tune and in time.

What Every Singer Needs

BodyRez
BodyRez

Short for EQualization, these controls allow you to shape the sound of audio by increasing or decreasing the gain of various frequencies. For example, our Tone feature for vocals adds high frequency and reduces low frequency to add “crispness” and reduce “mud” in the signal, making vocals sound more like they would in a recording studio.

For more information on Equalization see: Wikipedia Equalization

BodyRez - Natural Wood Tone
BodyRez - Natural Wood Tone

The sound of resonating wood is what gives an acoustic guitar its particular sonic allure, and this is where BodyRez comes in. New and unique to Play Acoustic, the BodyRez algorithm restores acoustic tone to guitars fitted with undersaddle pickups.

BodyRez = Full Bodied
BodyRez = Full Bodied

Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the beautiful full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.

Guitar FX for Your Style

No acoustic guitar is the same – and neither are singer-songwriters. Tweak and edit the sonic style of the included guitar effects as much as you want until you find that perfect tone for your guitar. Then, just set it and forget it. Play Acoustic takes care of your sound from here on out.

Make It a Hit

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.

What They Say
What They Say

“You can dial in a fantastic guitar sound, fill a room with amazing vocal effects and backing harmonies, and even loop musical phrases. This simple stomp box contains some serious technology in an easy-to-use platform.”

-Cult of Mac

"As a vocal enhancer this piece of kit is up there with the best. The sound is full and clean, and the harmonies realistic. The more you fiddle, the more you get from this packed piece of gear - take the option of looping as an example."

-Songwriting Magazine

"Without the effects on, it gave my guitar and voice nice, clean tones. Add to that the beautiful effects and the ease of use, and the total makes the TC Helicon Play Acoustic a fantastic addition to any singer/songwriter’s performance rig!"

Harmony
Harmony

Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

For more information on harmony and musical theory, check out: Wikipedia Harmony

Our scale chart, showing harmony notes created from an input note, can be found here: TC-H Harmony Chart

Double
Double

Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix. It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

For more information on Doubling or “double tracking” see: Wikipedia Double Tracking

Delay
Delay

Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats. Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Delay

Reverb
Reverb

Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom. Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

HardTune
HardTune

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it HardTune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way. The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable. To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Transducer
Transducer

Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here. Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

For more information on Transducers see: Wikipedia Transducer and Distortion: Wikipedia Distortion

µMod
µMod

µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

For more information on Chorus see: Wikipedia Chorus Effect and Wikipedia Flanging Effect

Natural Harmony
Natural Harmony

You have a tireless two-singer backing group which sounds more realistic than ever with improved portamento and humanization on our already renowned harmony effects. And don’t worry about setting the key: Play Acoustic follows your guitar chords automatically for harmonies that stay in tune and in time.

BodyRez
BodyRez

Short for EQualization, these controls allow you to shape the sound of audio by increasing or decreasing the gain of various frequencies. For example, our Tone feature for vocals adds high frequency and reduces low frequency to add “crispness” and reduce “mud” in the signal, making vocals sound more like they would in a recording studio.

For more information on Equalization see: Wikipedia Equalization

BodyRez - Natural Wood Tone
BodyRez - Natural Wood Tone

The sound of resonating wood is what gives an acoustic guitar its particular sonic allure, and this is where BodyRez comes in. New and unique to Play Acoustic, the BodyRez algorithm restores acoustic tone to guitars fitted with undersaddle pickups.

BodyRez = Full Bodied
BodyRez = Full Bodied

Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the beautiful full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.

Guitar FX for Your Style
