    What TC Helicon say about the Play Acoustic

    The first ever combination of complete vocal and dedicated electro-acoustic guitar processing, Play Acoustic takes everything that VoiceLive Play gives to singers and adds award-winning TC Electronic guitar effects tailored specifically for the electro-acoustic player.

    Now further add BodyRez™ and either stereo or dedicated DI outputs and you have all the tools you need to make a live acoustic performance shine. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or simply just practicing, Play Acoustic is the singing performing guitarist’s dream processor.

    Key Features

    • Professional Vocal Effects and Tone processing with intuitive control
    • BodyRez™ filtering and on-board EQ and DI for impeccable acoustic guitar tone
    • Guitar FX styles from TC Electronic’s Hall of Fame Reverb and Corona Chorus pedals
    • Natural sounding Vocal Harmonies guided by your guitar
    • Guitar feedback-proofing with notch filter and phase controls
    • Separate vocal and guitar outputs, or a stereo mix of both

    Play Acoustic - Harmonic Bliss

    The natural companion for any modern singer-songwriter, Play Acoustic combines all the things you need to make a live acoustic performance shine; lavish vocal sounds, perfect backing harmonies, best-selling guitar FX, and unique processing that makes your six-string sing – in perfect harmony with your voice.

    What Every Singer Wants

    Keep your vocals clean with a tight reverb or simple harmony – or go all out with tasty delays, thick doubles, edgy hard-tuning, cool modulations, and raw distortions – the choice is yours. Best of all, we’ve improved the portamento and humanization of our renowned harmony effects, making your tireless two-singer backing group more realistic than ever. 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

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

    Acoustic Alchemy Achieved

    Your acoustic guitar is both a powerful and delicate instrument, and we’ve made sure that Play Acoustic treats it with the respect it deserves. Tailor-made guitar FX from our sister company TC Electronic add a sweet touch of magic with essential styles from their best selling TonePrint pedals – Hall of Fame Reverb and Corona Chorus – while the direct Guitar DI output ensures signal fidelity all the way from pedal to PA.

    The Resonant Wood

    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 under-saddle pickups. 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.

    Intuitive Controls and Dedicated I/O

    Operating and navigating Play Acoustic is as straightforward as it gets. Use the Up/Down foot-switches 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 “set-list” recall. Separate mono XLR outputs for vocals and guitar makes it painless for any sound engineer to mix the levels perfectly for your audience, or you can set the output to Stereo and 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 – it’s 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 headphone mix when performing or practicing. Optionally, 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.
