WHAT EVERY SINGER WANTS
Keep your vocals clean with a tight reverb or simple harmony – or go all out with tasty delays, thick doubling, edgy hardtuning, cool modulations, and raw distortions. The choice is yours with hundreds of presets from the most popular styles.
Play Acoustic treats your guitar with the respect it deserves. Tailor-made guitar FX from TC Electronic add a sweet touch of magic and our new BodyRez™ gives you a fuller, acoustic tone when you’re playing through a PA.
