TC Helicon Play Electric Vocal Electric Guitar Effect Processor

Personal Sound Engineer Included
Equipped with our trademark Adaptive Tone, Play Electric acts as your personal sound engineer providing the one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating, giving your voice the impact and presence to always stand out in the mix.

Premium Amp Tones
Lifted from the improved engine of our new flagship processor VoiceLive 3 comes a powerful and comprehensive selection of amp emulations, complete with editable control of style, drive, volume and a 3-band tone stack. Ranging from vintage British to classic American these amp styles will thrill the room when bringing a heavy amp and cab isnt practical; you may even find you prefer plugging direct to the PA/monitors or an FRFR (full range frequency response) cab. If youre still rockin it oldschool, the dedicated guitar output ensures signal fidelity all the way from Play Electric to your favorite amp.

Intuitive Controls and Dedicated I/O
Operating and navigating Play Electric 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.
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.

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 its your call.

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!

In-Ear Monitoring
Use the embedded RoomSense mics to pick up the sounds from the room, the stage, or the instruments around you and 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 Electric (and turn the AUX signal off the main output). Additionally, our handy Guitar & Headphone Cable facilitates inexpensive in-ear monitoring with a convenient twist: two signals, one cable.

Sing Along with Vocal Cancel
Singing along is a great way to practice and perform. Plug in your MP3 player via the AUX In connector and use the Vocal Cancel feature to make your voice stand out over the vocals on the original track. You can also record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer and DAW.

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.

More Control
Add the TC-Helicon MP-75 or Sennheiser e 835 fx mics with Mic Control, or the Switch-3 footswitch for additional control of performance, effects and looping.
