TC Electronic Helix Phaser £99

Since launching, TC's TonePrint series has had one glaring omission: a dedicated phaser. Well, hanker no more, as the Helix has finally arrived and is promising to be more than just a “run-of-the-mill” phaser. Offering everything from “Gilmour swirls” to “Van Halen swooshes” and more, the Helix has two phase modes – Vintage and Smooth – plus a TonePrint slot. The Helix can run in mono or stereo, and also features true bypass and TC's Analog Dry Through.

TC Electronic Viscous Vibe £99

Based on the Shin-Ei Uni Vibe – as used by Hendrix and Pink Floyd – the Viscous is billed by TC as being a “dead on 1:1 digital recreation”. You get Speed, intensity and volume controls, as well as a mini-toggle to switch between chorus, vibrato or TonePrint. As with all TonePrint pedals, the Viscous is true bypass.

TC Helicon Ditto Mic £129

If you've ever tried looping your mic, or a mic'd acoustic, you'll know that you require a separate mic preamp. The new Ditto Mic does away with the need for this, allowing you to connect your mic into a small footprint. The Ditto Mic has five minutes of looping time (24-bit, uncompressed), and is equipped with phantom power, automatic mic gain, plus dedicated start/stop switches for controlling your loops. The Ditto also offers remote Mic Control from TC Helicon's MP-75 or Sennheiser's e835 FX microphones.
