Play Acoustic

06.07.2016
This pedal was originally bought for doing acoustic gigs where I just wanted backing vocals. Having played with the unit for a week and realising the amount of pre-sets you can download from the manufacturers website (listed by artist, song and genre!!) I haven't even needed to get into programming this thing yet. I also didn't realise that it had other functions such as looping, and the guitar effects I am now using as my go to pedal when recording acoustic guitar (and sometimes amp mic'ing) in the studio.

As the unit takes an audio input from the guitar to work out the harmonies, the unit is now setup as an aux effect (along with my other rack effects) to my mixer, so when a client comes in wanting harmonies to go along with any instrument, it works a dream. I've used it for creating harmonies when recording anything from dance tracks to basic acoustic set ups. This seems to get faster results than any plugin I've used. The only slight let down, was that the unit came with a US and EU plug adapter for the power supply, but no UK plug - so I am having to use an ugly adapter, as the manufacturers won't replace or sell me one!!!! All in all, this has definitely been a good purchase.

An excellent tool .

15.02.2017
I sing and play guitar . Acoustic and electric . I used already , before Play Acoustic , Harmony G , from TC Helicon , very satisfied with that one at he time.
This - Play Acoustic - is a real upgrade , you can change presets easily , three switches versus two on Harmony G ,
and a lot of effects for voice , and for guitar too !!!
First thing , I updated my soft , after installing Voice Support form TC Helicon .
You can now save in any preset , your voice tone and your guitar tone . Huge improvement from where I was with my older Harmony G . You got 500 presets at your feet .I cannot imagine someone needing more than that .
Almost forgot . You got a looper included , that works very well for me .AND the body rez effect for guitar works amazing.

I'm totally satisfied with my acquisition !!!

pros

A huge collection of effects for voice and for guitar , BODY Rez , 500 presets , that you can update on-line .

cons

maybe ....the high voice - the third up , sounds a little bit thiner than on my Harmony G , more girly ...but this is too little to change my opinion . An excellent tool .

I recomand this !
