The Voiceworks Plus has exceptional voice quality and fantastic effects. Unfortunately, this is of no value if the unit doesn't work. The first unit I bought had a low level noise at the output. I saw a low level input signal on my Mackie mixer as soon as I plugged the VW+ into the channel. However, all the functions and effects still worked, so I was able to play around with it, although the overall output was weak, and had this hissing sound on it. After trying to contact TC Helicon support, which has no listed live phone number, I received an email response that simply stated that I indeed had a defective unit. I ordered a new one and returned unit #1.

When I got the new unit, I plugged it in and although there was still a very low level noise signal into my mixer, everything worked great, with strong output signal. Then yesterday, when I powered it on, the noise level more than doubled, and the output signal was very low. I had to crank the output gain up to +10. I also have very little mike input gain control, which makes me suspect the problems are in the mike preamp section. (Note that the noise is present even without a mike attached to the input).

I did get a support phone number after complaining on the TC Helicon Facebook page, but that was late Friday and they don't work weekends. I like the sound and features so well that I guess I'll be trying a third unit. Hopefully I can get one of three to work.

Update 2/10
After discussion with a tech at Proaudiostar (which by the way is top notch to deal with) and also John at TC Helicon (also very knowledgable ), the 2nd unit is going back, and I've ordered unit #3. I don't want anyone to overlook the fact that the actual tones and voices this thing produces are far superior to anything else I've heard.

I've been using it 4 days a week for the past 6 months and it has not let me down. you have to read the manual over and over again to finally understand it though.
I just wish the manual was more comprehensive...

I have owned the TC-Helicon VoiceWorks Plus Vocal Effects Processor for a week now. The quality of the hardware appears to be top notch studio grade. Everything feels well built.

The voice modeling feature works better than I expected. The vocal pitch shifting is very accurate and fairly realistic when certain presets or custom settings are used. There are a lot of useful built-in presets.

Programming the unit is pretty simple. The interface is well designed. There's very few times when I need to consult the manual. The screen is easy to see, and the names for the settings are pretty obvious.

The TC-Helicon VoiceWorks Plus Vocal Effects Processor is a pretty fun musical effects unit. My kids enjoy all the voice changing capabilities it has. Some of the presets are quite hilarious, such as "ET Phone Home", which actually sounds pretty close to ET, and "Chipper Monk" which makes you sound like one of the chipmunk singers from Alvin and The Chipmunks. My favorite preset is "Swell Notes". This one uses a midi keyboard to play the notes used to create the voices. If used right, it can sound pretty realistic, like a small choir softly singing along with you. It's very useful musically.

The range of effects available is pretty wide. It can make a man sound like a woman, a child, a monster, a cartoon character, etc. Most of the voice alterations are pretty realistic, such as "Barbershop Trio", but some are also very unrealistic and quite interesting such as "Vocoda-Drone", which makes you sound like a singing robot.

I love the level of complexity available when I want to make my own custom voice. It lets you change all sorts of vocal features such as breathiness, growl, thick or thin neck, gender bending, etc.

Awesome piece of equipment!!! I haven't had the chance to work with my own voice making custom presets but the factory presets have been a blast and absolutely amazing!!! My daughter has fallen in love with it and uses several of the factory presets to singe her songs.

It came well packed and I got a very fair deal on it! Everything works properly. But I can see where doing custom things with my own voice will take some learning! But I would buy it again! And I recommend it to anyone looking for a voice processor!!!!

I didn't buy this product to do 90% of what it can do. I bought it mainly to use its voice modeling sparingly in limited applications, because in some ways, the VoiceWorks Plus was and still is one of the best vocal modeling processors ever made.

1. One reason I bought the VoiceWorks Plus was to create realistic harmonies, however, I do it the long way. After I set parameters for gender, timing, vibrato, etc., I play the lead vocal through the VoiceWorks Plus and manually perform a single harmony parts using a keyboard. I record the harmony onto its own track in my DAW, then edit the track to make it more realistic by adjusting things like pitch, volume, and timing on a note-by-note basis. I then repeat the process for each harmony part.

2. Another reason I bought the VoiceWorks Plus was for vocal special effects. For one of my studio productions, I needed to adjust the gender and quality of my voice to sound like different people calling in to a radio station, and the VoiceWorks Plus worked beautifully. It allowed me to change the length and width of my vocal chords to sound more like anyone from Lou Ferrigno to Lisa Simpson, without getting too alien or chipmunk. Obviously, this kind of heavy processing imparts a processed sound to the voice, so you couldn't apply it a lead dialog track. But the processed sound is masked nicely when you try to replicate someone speaking over a phone or two-way radio.

3. The last reason I bought this processor is one that TC-Helicon never touted or even bothered to demonstrate, so it went completely ignored by the recording industry: vibrato. The VoiceWorks Plus features the most realistic vibrato ever created for vocals. It's literally so good you can process lead vocal tracks with it.
