Top audio equipment manufacturer, TC-Helicon, has just released two brand-new products at the NAMM Show 2015: the Ditto Mic Looper and the MP-76 Microphone. Singers, beatboxers and acoustic performers - it's time to get excited.
TC-Helicon Ditto Mic Looper
The original Ditto Looper from TC Electronic forever changed guitarists’ expectations of how easy and simple such a pedal could be, so much so that it is now the best selling guitar pedal in the world. Now sister company TC-Helicon is set to do the same for singers with Ditto Mic Looper; a simple looper for vocals and mic’d up instruments.
Ditto Mic Looper is the perfect looping pedal for any type of vocalist or acoustic performers who want to realize a layered masterpiece quickly and easily. With just a ‘loop’ button, ‘stop’ button and an oversized loop level control, performers can build any idea into a full-sounding performance instantly, while unlimited overdubs and undo/redo features helps to bring the vibe up and down. Plus, the last loop is automatically stored – even when the unit is turned off!
TC-Helicon MP-76 Microphone
If you’re making use of the latest in vocal processing, TC-Helicon’s MP-76 microphone can help give your sound that studio-produced edge.
Going from one button on TC-Helicon’s original MP-75, to four buttons on the MP-76, increases your options exponentially for every added button. You choose what the four buttons control and you choose when to activate effects. Most importantly, you choose where on the stage to trigger those moments.
The backlit LCD display lets you know what preset you’re on and whether you’ve activated HIT or not. This is so you can be prepared to unleash that supremo vocal effect without giving it away beforehand! Plus, the microphone itself is powered simply by the trickle of phantom power sent from your TC-Helicon processor. In terms of live performances, the MP-76 is a game changer.
*TC-Helicon 'Gone Loopy' offer is available to customers in the UK and Ireland who purchase a Ditto Mic Looper until 31st March 2015. Terms and conditions apply, which you can view here.
