Not exactly what I was looking for
AdrianoGominho, 03.06.2019
I bought the TC-Helicon Singthing mainly for voice rehearsal in my home studio, but despite the good looks I quickly came to the conclusion that it is nothing more than a glorified singing toy. Definitely not something I would rely on for a live performance...

In any case as my vocal skills improve, I find less and less use for the fancy presets. All I need now is a bit of reverb to keep things interesting and a slight compression from a quality outboard unit (of course in the reverse order). Maybe I will keep this only as an overpriced desktop monitor...

Pros:

The bundled MP-75 mic is a nice touch and offers a slightly enhanced upper frequency response that adds some top end to otherwise dark voices.

Cons:

No control over the effects. For example there is a "Tone Style" effect which supposedly gives you compression, eq, gating and de-essing, but all you can do is select between "Normal", "Less Bright", "More compression", etc. No visibility or control over compression ratio, attack, release, etc.

MIDI does not respond to PC (program change). I found no way to change presets using MIDI, and the manual lists only a bunch of generic parameters which can be addressed using CC.

Altough it boasts a 150W spec, it lacks the volume needed to be heard in a normal live setup.

For more than once, accidentally plugging/unplugging the power cable with the unit turned on, made it revert to the factory presets. I would definitely not risk this happening before a gig!

The back panel is overcrowded and chaotic. Despite this, the AUX input is still via a fragile 3,5mm jack. I can only imagine what would happen if a cable plugged here is accidentally stepped over...

Some blue components are clearly visible just behind the top ventilation opening. Not a very good sign of overall construction quality.
