The latest product in TC-Helicon's popular VoiceTone range is the pun-derfully named Mic Mechanic, a pedal that offers reverbs, delays and pitch correction for vocalists.

Given that it's designed for live use, you'll be pleased to learn that the Mic Mechanic has a simple control layout, while the Tone button enables you to apply adaptive EQ, compression, de-essing and gating.

On the input side, there's a mic preamp with phantom power, while the output is a balanced XLR affair.

Find out more in the video above or the spec list below. The VoiceTone Mic Mechanic is expected to be available in October priced at £119/€149/$149.
