I love my mic mechanic. It can make cheap speaker systems sound better. It can help inexperienced FOH engineers. But mostly it has just the right amount of pitch correction for you to successfully pull off that modern vocal track that would otherwise be unsingable.
If you are one of those who don't have the money to carry a sound tech around, it's a great choice and get's you that reverb and echo to the voice. great great sound. would like to be able to customize the echo's speed but it's awesome value for money.
this guy right here will take you vocals and turn it into something special. just put it in the chain and expect wicked easy results. its literally like a 2 button "make my vocals epic" machine.
If you don't get along well with the local sound guy... get one of these. Leave your settings lower than you'd like and if things sound too quiet, just give it a boost.
Just like you can read all over the web, if you set the pitch correction too high the voice become robotic, "do you believe in life after love". Otherwise, the Mechanic is very smooth: good EQ, light compression. Reverb and echo are good too. Perhaps the pots are too much sensitive: sometimes (on echo effect) you'd like less echo, but the pot is already quite fully anti-clockwise.
