<![CDATA[TC Helicon Limited Time Offer! Buy a VoiceLive 3 and get a FREE VoiceSolo MX150. More deals as well! Ends July 31]]> Thu, 10 Jul 2014 09:24:01 +0000 Who said effects were just for instruments? TC Helicon is offering the ultimate package for all kinds of vocalists. Buy a VoiceLive 3 and get a FREE VoiceSolo MX150. That's not it, either. Buy a Play Acoustic pedal and get a MP-70 mic for free!

 

 

The VoiceLive 3 is the swiss army knife for vocalists. With 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different styles, and more than 250 factory presets, you can craft any sound from subtle reverb to spacey psychedelic vocals. The features are endless: you can experiment musically with a built in looper, and control layers of effects in real time!

The VoiceSolo MX150 PA amp is the perfect compliment to the VoiceLive3. With effortless integration of effects, you'll never have to worry about getting your effects to sound just the way you want them. The VoiceSolo MX150 is made to be versatile, clipping easily on to mic stands without fuss. Until July 31, you get this $330 amp FREE with the VoiceLive 3!

If you're an acoustic singer or performer, there are more deals! The Play Acoustic effect pedal allows you to get the perfect live acoustic sound to immerse the audience in your performance. Shape the sound of a dry direct acoustic guitar signal to sound precisely like it does in the room, affected by natural resonances in the wood and the space in which you hear it. All while adding a complimentary effect to your vocals.

The MP-70 is a modern mic made for the modern singer. TC Helicon has designed this mic to minimize background and ambient noise while capturing the best qualities of your voice. And until July 31, it's free with the Play Acoustic pedal!

How it works: 

Print out, fill in and send in the promotion form to TC Helicon by post along with proof of purchase to claim your FREE VoiceSolo FX150 or MP-70 microphone.
