TC-Helicon, TC Electronic and Tannoy, all members of the TC Group family of companies, will premier nine new products at this year’s NAMM Show.

TC Group at NAMM 2014

Spanning from vocal processing and monitoring, guitar looping, studio monitoring and last but not least a book release on all aspects of vocal performance, a lot of ground is covered.

Kevin Alexander, VP of Business Management, adds “We are coming into NAMM hot off the release of a family of four Bass Combos, a new version of the game-changing PolyTune pedal tuner, mini reverb and boost pedals, and the TonePrint Editor for iPad – all since the summer. But musicians don’t stop inspiring us to spend more time in the office bashing out new gear. To have major new product and products ranges debuted at NAMM speaks to the coffee-fueled ingenuity of our musician-focused development teams.”

TC Group will be exhibiting all of the new products at booth 5932, and all NAMM attendees are invited to stop by for a demonstration, a hands-on experience and a chat with the product managers and specialists.

TC Group brings new collective identity to the fore

The TC Group of companies, which includes leading sound and audio brands Tannoy, TC Electronic, Lab.gruppen and TC-Helicon, has announced a bold rebranding initiative, unveiled for the first time at Frankfurt as part of a unique combined group presence at the Musikmesse/Prolight+sound show.

TC Group

The move formally brings the collective vision and values of the group’s brand companies together under a new and visible, TC Group brand identity – increasing market awareness of both TC Group as a whole and of its individual brands. While the companies have been linked by the same parent organisation for over a decade, and more recently shared sales co-ordination with the formation of sales organisations such as TC Group Americas (TCGA) and TC Group International (TCGI) in recent years, as well as increasingly collaborating on product development; individual brand identities have remained separate with no visible connection between them.

This group brand initiative is designed to align the brands, forming a more coherent relationship between them in the eyes of the end user and highlighting the high degree of shared resource and expertise across the respective brands. In doing so, it will allow TC Group to leverage better synergies between the brands in developing pioneering new products and moving towards bringing systems solutions, to better serve its diverse customer base across the many market segments within which it’s active.

Anders Fauerskov, CEO of TC Group, said: “If you interact with any part of the TC Group world you’ll find people deeply passionate about sound. That shared passion makes collaboration completely natural, almost instinctive. Telling the TC Group story to our customers, as well as how the brands are connected, is important to us. We want our customers to know that we put every ounce of our collective energies into developing market-leading products, with innovation that comes only from working together. We have total faith in our brands and the people driving them forward for the benefit everyone, whether they are a musician, sound engineer, integrator or the person standing in a busy train station listening to announcements.”

In uniting the brands under a visible group identity, Tannoy, TC Electronic, TC-Helicon, Lab.gruppen, Lake, White Acoustics and TC Applied Technologies will be better positioned to maximise their potential across respective market segments. With closer collaboration – not only within the group, but also with our key business partners and customers – comes greater opportunity for development and growth. While the global sales & support organisations of TC Group will also come under the new core TC Group banner, the business structure and customer contact points will not change in any way.

Combining their extensive expertise in creating tools for vocalists and microphone technology, the two companies have been working on joint research projects since 2011, and will launch a joint product at NAMM in January 2013.

“The initial spark for our co-operation was at NAMM 2011, when TC-Helicon premiered a microphone with controls for vocal effects and Sennheiser demonstrated ‘Concept Tahoe’, a beatboxing microphone developed in their research lab in the USA,” says Kevin Alexander, CEO of TC-Helicon. “We had never met, we had never talked – and happened to be showing the same product!”

“We sat down together right at the show in a very open and friendly atmosphere and talked about what we were working on in our respective companies. We immediately saw each other as partners,” says Michael Polten, Director Customer Relationship Management at Sennheiser. “TC-Helicon’s mission is to give singers full control and Sennheiser’s aim is to provide excellent microphones – so our brands were a perfect fit.”

TC-Helicon and Sennheiser started a joint research project, exploring how to interface their products to provide one-stop solutions for singers and musicians – products that will make a real difference for their users. The first results of the commitment will be seen at NAMM 2013, where the companies will launch a joint product.

Kevin Alexander: “We are very excited about this upcoming product bundle. Taking the most innovative microphone brand and the most popular vocal processing brand can only be a good thing for singers.”

TC-Helicon VoiceJam

TC-Helicon has released version 1.2.50 of VoiceJam, adding an inApp option to the powerful and creative audio looper for iPhone.

With the new inApp option, TC-Helicon now allows all users of its VoiceJam app to add shine to their voices with reverb modeled from the amazing VoiceTone R1 vocal effects pedal. Several different room simulations are available – from clean and subtle studio sounds to huge arena reverberations, or anything in between.

Also available is the VoiceTone C1 inApp option that is based in the vocal effects pedal with the same name and number. C1 offers hardtune and gender bending, and combined with the R1 inApp users can take that billboard-top-40 robotic-extreme-pitch-corrected sound over the top!

Further, users now get access to an audio scrub feature and instant drum-machine like loop triggering by tapping or dragging on any part of the orbiting waveform when the drum icon is lit.

Finally, a lot of polishing went on under the hood. Most significantly, VoiceJam has been heavily optimized to have a smaller memory footprint on the host devices.

In short, VoiceJam is taking creativity-on-the-fly to the next level!

VoiceJam for iOS is available to purchase for $4.99 USD.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 08, 2011 - comment 0 comments

TC-Helicon has announced the ‘Gone Loopy’ competition, which runs from 30 June to 30 September.

TC-Helicon Gone Loopy competition
Requirements to participate: a TC-Helicon product with looping capability (VoiceLive Touch, VoiceLive 2 or VoiceJam app for iPhone), a personal YouTube account and an open, creative mind.

The grand prize of the ‘Gone Loopy’ competition is a US$1000 in cash plus a 45-minute lesson via Skype with the vocal looping master, Beardyman. Additionally, there are 5 runners up prizes – a ‘mystery’ TC-Helicon product – and the 5 perticipants who upload the most video entries will also be awarded with a TC-Helicon MP-75 Modern Performance Microphone.

To enter the competition, participants just have to complete 3 simple steps. First, they must record a video of themselves creating layers of vocal loops, using a TC-Helicon looping device. Second, upload the video to a personal YouTube video channel, making sure that ‘TC-Helicon Looping’ is included in the title of the video, and third, complete the online entry form on TC-Helicon’s website. To increase the chances of winning all participants are free to loop these 3 steps as many times as they want to – a new video must be submitted each time, of course.

All winners of the competition will be selected exclusively by the amazing voice loop and human beatbox master: Darren Foreman aka ‘Beardyman’. In a way, he could be seen as the personification of TC-Helicon’s overall goal: to support all singers’ natural right to express themselves in any way they feel like. Beardyman currently uses an impressive setup of looping devices and effects when creating his layers of vocals, including several pieces of gear from the TC-Helicon family of products.
