TALKBOX SYNTH offers classic and new sounds to the guitarist s arsenal. From instantly recognizable talkbox hose-in-the-mouth sounds to wonderfully electronic talking robot effects, imagine yourself commanding attention at jams and gigs. Even when the effect is off, TALKBOX SYNTH can vastly improve your core vocal sound with Adaptive Tone, reverb and pitch correction.Classic talkbox effects have always come through a PA, not a guitar amp, so TALKBOX SYNTH is the ideal way to bridge that gap. The XLR output of TALKBOX SYNTH sends your polished vocal mic output to the PA while also outputting the on-board effects when you hit the foot switch. The guitar input and output circuitry is designed to preserve your precious guitar tone as it passes to your pedals and amplifier.The on-board synthesizer is triggered by your single note guitar playing and can translate your solos and licks into something even a skilled keyboardist would marvel at. The nuances of finger vibrato combined with your vocal expression take your guitar solos and licks from earthbound to mile high in an instant.Reverb simulates a physical space, allowing your voice to fit into the music perfectly. Whether it?s the ambiance of a small room, or the massive reverberation of a concert hall, TalkBox Synth s vocally tuned reverb always brings out the best in your voice.We re all human and nobody hits every note perfectly.Nobody.With transparent auto-chromatic pitch correction, we nudge 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.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 TalkBox Synth! It can be powered by 4 AA batteries (not included) in addition to the optional 9V adapter.
