    Hello-

    I am considering the VL3 Extreme Rack and have several questions. 

    Looking for a MIDI controller that has a built in volume pedal that can be mapped to parameters like delay level and anything else I’d like to adjust in real-time.

    Trying to  incorporate the looping functions, I know they aren’t supported by MIDI but wondering if the proprietary switch can be connected to a MIDI foot pedal in the same way that an amp channel switch pedal can used. Sometimes hard switches like this can be included in a MIDI preset.

    What are the best options for controllers? Looking at the Roland and Behringer.

      Thank you!


      I guess there is only one rack version? 


      Ok.


      MIDI info doesn’t show anything about mapping that I can see. I would like to have my guitar pre on the same MIDI cable with some presets able to change a vocal effect without changing guitar and vice versa.


      Just looking for a foot controller for live playing.


      The Behringer looks good. 


      Can I program mapping there?


      Can I run a 1/4” cable from the Behringer to the foot switch in on the rack and access the looper or should I just add the TC 3 or 5 button switch to my set-up?

      as for the Behringer FCB 1010 i recommend you get in touch with a Behringer product specialist for in depth information


      I work in TCe Guitar R&D and don't know the product in depth unfortunately


      There is a free editor available, so seting up the buttons and switches on the FCB 1010 seems quite comfortable.

      there is also the famous UNO upgrade available to expand the FCB's functionality:


      https://www.fcb1010.eu/       (third party alternative OS for fcb1010)

      you can configure buttons /switches to send Prg change or continous Midi CCs (with upper and lower value limit)

      More infos on the FCB 1010 features can be found in the product manual:

      Best regards,

      Thank you so much. 


      Just to be clear, my ONLY rack mount option is the old one?


      No chance of any new release?

      Hey @juanermaza,
      We have just released an update for the Perform-V and Perform-VK mobile apps!  Here are the release notes:



      • Fixed audio beam crashes caused by iOS 13

      • Fixes to some layout and graphical glitches

      • Greatly improved Audio beam success rates on iPhones, particularly X and XR, audio should only come out of the Bottom speakers now. Issue was the ear speaker was also playing the sound and conflicting. Note this also dramatically lowers the required volumes to transmit the data with Audio.


       


      If you haven't already been prompted to update, you can find the Perform-V app here, and the Perform-VK app here.  Cheers!

    I bought my first Voicelive 3 Extreme about 4 months ago and noticed everytime I plug my Guitar output (Dual Mono) to my amp a loud Hum/Whine noise comming from the amp. When I plug my VL to my pedalboard, cause of the longer path, it obviously goes louder and make it impossible to use it live. The noise doesn't seems to appear on the mic output. I have tried almost everything (ground, better isolation, new power supply) but didn't seems to fix it. Do you think it is the hardware defecting? Or an update of the firmware could potentially fix it? 
    If anyone know what it is or could help me because I cannot wait to incorporate it to my set up...  
    Thanks

      Hey @polm,
      If you get in contact with our support team they'll be able to help you troubleshoot this further.  I can say we've never experienced that here, so I don't think it's firmware but rather something with your actual setup.  Feel free to share your entire signal path and others could help you out here too.  Cheers!

      Hey @ghendric,
      From page 65 of the manual:


      “How do I perform a full factory reset?”
      ► When powering up the unit, press and hold “Back” and “store”.
      ► Any changes you have made to presets or setup information will be erased.
      ► Back up your custom presets and setup data via VoiceSupport

     Hi there,

    I've been using a Voice Live 2 in the studio and a Voice Voice Live Touch 2 for live performances.

    I start to miss some features on the Voice Live Touch 2, more specifically the just Intonation setting and midi notes 4chan.

    I've read in the manual of the Voice Live Touch 1 that it does midi notes in 4chan but Just Intonation is not mentioned. However in this video of this editor

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nB7n4Gf5Jj0

    there is a tap for the "Tuning" Parameter set to Equal. This for me indicates that it is possible to set the Voice Live Touch to Just Intonation. Would somebody mind clearing this up? Is it that this feature is somehow hidden in the sysex implementation?

      Hey @SimonSchmidt,
      Yes indeed that "Tuning" parameter in the Harmony block is hidden away in sysex land.  We don't typically share sysex manuals, but this product is so old... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  I've attached it for you.  At sysex offest 22 you'll see there's a "Harmony Tuning" parameter which is probably what you're after.  It looks like it has 3 possible values, without deeply digging into the code I can't tell you what those are... But in VoiceLive 3 the three tuning references are:  equal, just, and barbershop, in that order.  It might take some experimentation to figure out what they are in Touch 1, but hopefully this gets you on the right track.  Cheers!

    I use a wireless Keytar for lead breaks, but the harmonies stop when I play the keytar. I have a sequencer track ready to go for the harmonies, but it won't change the harmonies. How do I set up the VLT 2 so the harmonies work from a sequencer track?

      Hey @AlanMinnear,
      Can you please expand on what you mean by "sequencer track"?  Is this just a MIDI track with MIDI notes?  If that's the case, you can run it into the 5-pin MIDI input on Touch 2, and in the Harmony effect set the key to "Auto".  Cheers!

      Hello @Santhos31 


      Have you been successfull finding Vysor Editor for Voiceworks Plus yet?


      It must have been available for free a while ago: 


      https://www.kvraudio.com/product/vyzor_editors_for_tc_helicon_by_tc_helicon


      I really don't want to spend $159 on Midi Quest Essentials If this single program used to be freeware.


      Regards,


      Frank

      Santhos31:


      I just came across your post while doing a desperate search for a firmware update for my Voiceworks Plus Harmonizer unit. I was just able to find the original editing program that you may have been looking for so maybe there is a way that I can get it to you. I will attach a couple of screen shots of what it looks like on my Mac.  Also, if you have a Voiceworks Plus you might have one of the updates that I am looking for. My unit (which is virtually new and unused in the original box) still has the original firmware version of 1.01. I have not been able to find version 1.21 which I think is the last available update but perhaps you have it. Please let me know. I look forward to your reply!


      Pete

    Hi, my question is as the title shows. Does harmony work with karaoke? Thanks!

      Hey @Eli,
      Perfrom-VK gets its chordal info from a few sources: the MIDI input, the instrument input, the auxiliary input, and the RoomSense microphone.  Perform-VK dynamically switches between these sources - when one goes silent it'll start listening to whatever is giving it signal, with the RoomSense mic being the last resort.  So in your case you'd likely want to be sending the karaoke track to the auxiliary input, and as long as the track clearly represents the chords being played then harmonies will work great.  Our harmony algorithm needs to be able to hear at least the root and the third of each chord to properly identify what's being played - so for example a track of an acoustic guitar would be great, but a track of just drums likely wouldn't contain enough musical info and harmonies would sound weird.  Basically, yes it should work but it really depends on the track - that'll just take some experimentation on your part.  Cheers!
