TC-Helicon introduced VoicePro at Winter NAMM, offering a combination of proprietary voice processing algorithms developed through years of human voice research, and a voice-optimized compilation of essential vocal effects including classic TC algorithms.

VoicePro features include TC-Helicon's third generation VoiceModeling, Hybrid Shifting and Flextime algorithms allowing pitch, time and character of a voice to be refined and manipulated in ways that have previously been impossible to alter. Producers can comfortably audition and place VoicePro's natural harmony parts in a final mix. A unique Mod effect re-creates the timeless micro shifted and vocal chorus sounds. Additionally, sound designers and music producers will benefit from a transducer algorithm that emulates telephones, radios and other quality reducing devices. To polish off any preset, VoicePro includes voice-optimized versions of classic TC reverbs and delays.

Integrating VoicePro in any studio setting is easy with 24/96 analog and multi-channel digital I/O that rivals the quality of dedicated converter products. The application-based user interface centers around a 320 x 250 color TFT display. VoicePro becomes a vocal palette with 250 factory presets (250 user) that include four assignableparameters for instant tweaking.

VoicePro is expected to ship in April with an estimated list price of $3495 MSRP.
