Pretty amazing pedal. It basically does EVERYTHING, and I don’t say that lightly. This thing harmonizes automatically using a built in microphone or line in to detect key, has all your standard TC Electronics and TC Helicon guitar and vocal effects, changes the gender of your voice believably, acts as a vocoder, looper, etc… Check out these videos straight from the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.
