Getting what you want
When you picture a great performance, you may think of clean vocals with a simple harmony or tight reverb. Perhaps your vision is a bit more complex, with, thick vocal doubling, well-controlled delays, cool modulations, edgy hard-tuning and raw distortions…the choice is yours. TC also improved their humanization and portamento in their harmony effects, making a two-singer backing group sound more personal and genuine than ever. Play Acoustic also follows your guitar chords automatically for harmonies that stay in tune and in time, so there’s no need to worry about your key.

Getting what you need
Play Acoustic comes equipped with TC’s exclusive Adaptive Tone, acting as your personal sound engineer providing automatic intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating, giving your voice the impact and presence to always stand out in the mix.

Fantastic product!


Fantastic product! Easy to use, and very well designed! Every vocalist must have one of those.

Fantastic natural sound


I primarily play acoustic guitar and sing in various church services. The Play Acoustic has improved the quality of my sound more than I could have imagined. My guitars (usually a Taylor 6 string or Breedlove 12 string) always sounded good, but they are even better now. My vocals are fuller with a really nice reverb. When switched in, the vocal harmonies sound totally natural. It only took a few minutes to find a suitable setting. There's no question that much of what this pedal can do I will never use, but as a way to improve the sound of a solo acoustic guitar and vocal, this is just what I was looking for.
