TC Helicon presents the Mic Mechanic, an astounding vocal effects pedal, with the ability to shape your vocals as if you had your own personal sound engineer with you at every gig. Mic Mechanic leaves out the superfluous bells and whistles, giving you studio-grade reverb, delay, natural-sounding pitch correction, and adaptive tone – which dynamically tweaks EQ, compression, de-essing and gating on the fly – to help make your vocals sound great on stage. The device has an XLR input (that offers phantom power for condenser microphones), an input gain control with clip indicator and a mic-level output to connect to your mixing desk. A 12-Volt power supply is included in the box.
According to several user reviews of TC Helicon Mic Mechanic, some users have praised it for the quality mic preamp; Good power output; easy to use; very versatile lightweight and efficient. Also, some users have complained it for the chromatic pitch correction; It sound really good though, but not for recording because it induces some serious noize; Limited functions.
