TC-Helicon Critical Mass Gang Vocals Effects Pedal TC-Helicon has released the Critical Mass, a new choir and gang vocals stomp box. It is designed to inject atmosphere into a live vocal performance. The pedal features a metal chassis designed to withstand the rigors of touring, with three styles of reverb and Adaptive Tone (equalization) to automatically clean up the microphone. The stomp box features four gang and four melodic choir styles, including Unison, Octave Up, Octave Down, and Up and Down, which helps eliminate the need for backing tracks. The Critical Mass can be powered by AA batteries or a 9-V power supply. For more information, contact Intellimix: 514-457- 9663, FAX 514-457-0575, salesinfo@intellimix.com, www.intellimix.com.
