      • VL3 and Reaper.....
        MIsterWonderful I'm trying to get Reaper to talk to my VL3. I've followed the video https://youtu.be/Gg7IZIJzd3I and followed the steps till I get to the inputting the Midi cc's. I Just can't get them to talk to each other!! I can see a message is being sent to the VL3, but it's not changing any settings.

      PedroRodrigues Hi MIsterWounderful Please consider that there can be up to 500 presets loaded into a VoiceLive 3, and it’s possible to navigate between these presets with an external controller sending MIDI Control Change (“CC”) and Program Change (“PC”) messages. The VoiceLive 3 can receive CC and PC messages via MIDI from sources like keyboards, footswitches, DAWs, and more. For the controlling device to send a MIDI message to VL3 it needs to be using the same MIDI channel as the VL3, typically this is channel 1 but you’re welcome to change it. Also make sure you aren’t misusing the MIDI input filters, and ensure that the MIDI input is set to be either “USB” (for the USB-mini input) or “MIDI Ports” (for the 5-pin MIDI input) depending on how you're connecting. These settings can be changed in VL3’s “Setup” menu, on the “MIDI” tab.
      *INSERT PIC OF MIDI TAB*
      To change Presets via MIDI, first tell the VL3 which Bank to look in, then tell it which Preset in that Bank you want to change to.
      Bank select: To specify the desired bank, issue an LSB Bank select message (CC#32) with a value of 0-3.
      Preset Select: After specifying the Bank, issue a PC Preset select message with a value of 0-127.
      MSB LSB VL3Bank Program Change (PC) VL3 Preset #
      0 0 0 0-127 1-128
      0 1 1 0-127 129-256
      0 2 2 0-127 257-384
      0 3 3 0-115 385-500

      The internal number associated with a Preset isn’t exactly what you see on the VL3’s screen, they’re actually all off by 1. This is because internally the list of Presets actually starts at an index of 0. This means that 0 = Preset #1, 1 = Preset #2, 2 = Preset #3, etc. It’s like your presets are saved from 0-499 but are displayed as 1-500.
      There are 4 Banks in VL3, and each Bank contains 128 Presets. Therefore the Preset selection number that goes to VL3 needs to be between 1 and 128. So for a Preset above 128, you need to subtract the number of the first Preset in the same Bank to get the MIDI Program Change info.
      The 9-digit message for changing to a preset is in the format of:
      MSB LSB PC#
      Or, you can first send a CC#32 of the Bank you’re looking in, then a PC value of the Preset you want.
      Here are some examples:
      Preset #5 would be: 5 - 1 = 4
      000 000 004
      or CC#32 value 0, then PC 4
      Preset #100 would be: 100 - 1 = 99
      000 000 099
      or CC#32 value 0, then PC 99
      Preset #208 would be: 208 - 129 = 79 (because Preset #208 is in Bank 1, which starts at Preset #129)
      000 001 079
      or CC#32 value 1, then PC 79
      Preset 259 would be: 259 - 257 = 2
      000 002 002
      or CC#32 value 2, then PC 2
      Preset 322 would be: 322 - 257 = 65
      000 002 065
      or CC#32 value 2, then PC 65
      Preset 491 would be: 491 - 385 = 106
      000 003 106
      or CC#32 value 3, then PC 106
      Preset 500 would be: 500 - 385 = 115
      000 003 115
      or CC#32 value 3, then PC 115

      When you try to address a Preset that does not exist (either an empty spot or one outside the 1-500 range), there is no built-in warning system, VL3 just won’t do anything. So if you can see the “MIDI” indication on the VL3 appearing when you send commands, but are not getting the Preset to change, ensure you’re not referencing an empty or non-existent Preset location.
      *INSERT PIC OF THE MIDI POPUP*
      If that all seems too complicated for you, consider using Steps instead of Presets. Steps are essentially Presets within a Preset, and you can have up to 10 Steps all in the same Preset. If your current Preset contains the Steps you’ll be using, it just takes a single CC message to choose your Step…
      CC 115 = Step
      Value represents Step Number, i.e. 1 = Step 1, 2 = Step 2, etc.
      So sending a CC#115 with a value of 2 will take you to the second Step in your current Preset.

      PetGerbil Just putting this here, for future reference.

      Make sure you go into the "Route" setting on the track (next to the "FX" button) and double check
      you've got it set to "Voicelive3" In the hardware output.

      • VL3 and Reaper.....
        MIsterWonderful I'm seeing it as "USB2.0-MIdi"
        • 13 hours ago
    • MIsterWonderful
      PetGerbil If you press "Cntrl+P" In Reaper to bring the preferences up and look under "MIDIDevices" Is it there and enabled.?

      Also on a side note, are you using the VL3 as a Midi interface over USB, or using a separate Interface and the 5pin MIDI plugs.? I'm assuming the former. If the latter I'll need to change tack... :)

      MIsterWonderful "USB 2.0 Midi" is enabled. Want to use my PC to play the track. Want to use the VL to change my vocal harmonies and what not as well as playing my guitar through VL and change the tones.

      DavidKnighton Hello Pablo,
      As far as I know, the product lifecycle is still in the production phase, meaning it's not been discontinued and probably won't be anytime soon. There is high demand for all musical products during these times, due to many people being on lockdown. This means the product is selling out faster than distributors can acquire it. Best thing to do is to place a back order with your distributor so you get priority shipment once the product becomes available.

    greetings,  pedal new, seems noisy, annoying mains hum and swishing noises ! Any advice please.

    0 9
    • ganga675
      PeteMoody The swishing noises you mention tend to appear in audio gear that is powered by switch mode power supplies and often caused by a ground loop. This is especially prominent if you have the pedal plugged into a computer USB port. I almost guarantee that if you put a DI box with ground lift enabled between your H1 pedal and amp the noise will disappear.

    • ganga675
      PedroRodrigues Hi ganga675, I would suggest to perform a factory reset followed by a pot calibration to access if this may help you on the issue that you mentioned .Please try to To restoring the factory preset on your pedal , first you must downloading the VoiceSupport application. Then simply click the first preset in the list and SHIFT and click the last preset in VoiceSupport, and then press “Apply Changes” to start initialization of the program.
      Pot Re-calibration:
      1. Quickly power up and power down the unit three times while simultaneously holding the Footswitch.
      2. Then turn the pot fully counter clockwise and press the foot switch once.
      3. Next, turn the pot fully clockwise and press the foot switch once.
      The potentiometers are calibrated from left to right and the top right LED will change color as each potentiometer is successfully calibrated. For indicated left pot (Green LED), center pot (Orange LED), right pot (Red LED). You should do the 2 and 3 steps for each pots. And every you calibrate a pot, the top right LED should change color to indicating the pot is successfully calibrated. Once you have calibrated the third pot, unplug and re-plug the device to resume normal operation.

    The sound output is not stable.

    At some point in the increase in the voice, a sound jump occurs.

    Musictribe support refused me and suggested that I just throw the device away. Because it is not a warranty case.

    I am looking for people who know the device. If the problem, for example, contacted the noise gate, there may be a chance to fix the device. It may be possible to turn off the gate completely?... The software for updating the firmware is very limited, and does not allow deeply change the device settings.

    Will glad to hear some ideas or advice.

    Hey guys, looking for some advice...

    I recently picked up a new Performer VK for my keyboard so I can bolster my band's vocal harmonies.  However, I'm having difficulty trying to get it to work off my keyboard's note MIDI output. I don't want to run my keyboard audio through the Performer VK with my vocals mixed into one stereo feed because vocals and instruments are run into separate channels on our mixer (for obvious reasons).

    Is there a way the Performer VK can just listen to my keyboard's midi notes and work the harmonies off that, or can I run the headphone out from my keyboard to the Performer VK instrument input to achieve the same purpose, but not have the keyboard audio come out of the performer?

    Hopefully others have come across this and resolved it :)

    Many thanks!!

      PedroRodrigues Hi PeterMoody Please be aware that the PERFORM-VK responds to Control Change (CC), Program Change (PC) and MIDI Tempo (not MIDI Clock) information. To block incoming CC and PC messages, hold the Set button while powering on. Note data will still be accepted in this state.
      For convenience, we have mapped many PERFORM-VK CC’s to the Behringer UMA25s controller keyboard.
      The “UMA25s Mapping” column shows the button or control on the UMA25s related to each control.
      MIDI PC Messages The product’s 3 presets correspond to Program Change Bank 0: 125, 126, 127
      MIDI CC List The following chart shows a list of all available control changes.
      The MIDI channel can be set by holding the Set button and pressing a note on a connected MIDI keyboard.
      The MIDI channel on which this note was sent will be used as the MIDI receive channel.

      PeteMoody Thank you for your comprehensive reply Pedro :)
      What I actually discovered is that I don't need to plug the keyboard audio into the VK for it to pick-up the notes I play. Actually I merely had to plug in a MIDI cable from the keyboard out into the VK and it automatically picks the harmonies needed which is fantastic because the manual does not explicitly state this. I originally thought that MIDI only worked in "Notes Mode" but in fact it works in all Harmony modes.

      So to all other keyboard players out there who are loaded with the task of doing all the backing vocals in their band, this device is perfect for that!!

      The only thing I don't like about this harmoniser is that it follows the vibrato of the source voice which sounds very robotic. What would be great is if the harmoniser would just provide the additional harmonies but ignore or alter the vibrato so that they are not an exact copy of the source voice (like real backing singers do) and also turn down the sibilants on the harmony voices. That would create more realistic backing vocals.

    Hi. Can anyone help me with balancing outputs across different presets

    • cwest
      NicJonesMT Hi CWEST.
      If you are using a Guitar go to the Setup > guitar tab and set the output mode to UNITY GAIN. This will then give a constant output level for the guitar.
      There is not a global setting for the vocal however, so you would need to check and adjust the level of each patch. I would recommend connecting to a Mixer or an Audio interface so that you can monitor the input signal, this way you can then try to balance the level more accurately.

      WilliamR Hello beachinn, Sometimes issues like this can be cleared up with a firmware update. Make sure when you run the voice support 2 software that there are no web browsers open while you are running voice support 2 as it tends to interfere with the detection of the device.


      1. Download and install VoiceSupport2 software from here.


      https://www.tc-helicon.com/Categories/Tchelicon/Vocal/Apps/VOICESUPPORT-2/p/P0CMP/Downloads#googtrans(en|en)


      2. Connect the device to PC / Mac with USB and turn on the power.


      3. Start VoiceSupport2.


      4.VoiceSupport2 recognizes the device, and if there is the latest update, an update mark will be added to the device image.


      5. Select Update in the upper tab, click the latest firmware and try the update.

      beachinn thank you WilliamR for the reply. I did what you said but it does not recognize the H1. I gave some mis information in the post. the light does not come on when powered up. The power light is off BUT when i press the foot pedal button, the foot pedal on/off light blinks twice and goes off. You can repeat the process. I also, tried various ways of holding the button down, unplugging the pedal etc... when starting the software. Also made sure the browser was clear of any running programs. Any more suggestions? Thank you in advance
      • Feb 21
    • beachinn
      beachinn Another update, I have an identical H1 I bought to replace this one a year ago. I took the adapter from it and hooked to the defective H1 and now the power light stays on and the pedal light blinks constantly. If you depress the pedal, the light stays on Either way, it will not detect on my computer. I even found an old usb cable that fits the pedal. Still no luck. Also, hooked up my newer pedal and it does not detect it either.
