TC HELICON MIC MECHANIC 2
Improving on its predecessor, the original Mic Mechanic, Mic Mechanic 2 is a compact vocal toolbox in a easy-to-use pedal. As your personal sound engineer, Mic Mechanic 2 provides time-tested tone and effects you can take anywhere to always sound your best.
Reverb simulates a physical space, allowing your voice to fit into the music perfectly. Whether it’s something small like a room or large like a concert hall, Mic Mechanic 2’s vocally tuned reverb compliments your voice and enhances every performance. Echo (the effect formally known as delay) allows you to add repeats of your vocals, timed with your music. This cool effect helps your vocals really gel with the song. Whether you choose a lot of repeats, repeats, repeats… or just a few, you’re in control. Mic Mechanic 2 also allows you to set the tempo via the footswitch, so it’s as easy as tapping your foot in time with the music.
We’re all human and nobody hits every note perfectly. Nobody. With transparent auto-chromatic pitch correction, MM2 nudges your pitch to the nearest semitone. It won’t turn a potato into a spaceship, but it can give you a little support when you need it most. Mucking about with mic gain can be a real hassle, especially if you’re in a hurry or at a new and unfamiliar venue. Mic Mechanic 2 automatically sets your mic gain, so you never have to worry whether things are set correctly.
Adaptive EQ (equalization), compression, de-ess, and gate automatically control the timbre and shape of your vocal, ensuring that every note you sing is clean and clear. Because when the crowd can hear what you’re singing, they can sing along and there is nothing is better than that! Sometimes it’s just not feasible to find a power outlet when you’re performing. That doesn’t mean you should be without your Mic Mechanic 2! It can be powered by 4 AA batteries (not included) in addition to the optional 9V adapter.
