    Hi! 

    I'm trying to control the harmonies with my keyboard using midi. It's working and I do get the signal, but it's quite unreliable. Sometimes it harmonizes the notes that I'm playing and sometimes it just harmonize on of the notes in the chord. And sometimes some notes are strong and some are weak. It's very frustrating and I don't know what the problem is. I would appreciate some help! /Malin

      PedroRodrigues Hi malinwillen, please consider that you can play a song on your keyboard while singing and hear how the harmony voices adjust musically as you play the different chords in your song.
      As each chord is recognized, the LCD display will briefly show “NP” meaning NaturalPlay.
      The factory presets that have the word “Notes” in their names use another form of harmony control called “MIDI Notes”.
      These presets allow you to tie the pitch of the harmony voices to the exact notes you play.
      The maximum number of notes can be 4 or 8 depending on whether Harmony Doubling is activated in the HARMONY tab of the EDIT menu.
      In chords without a clear third, VoiceLive 2 will assume a major chord, so when you play in a minor key, and as a rule, you should always include a third when changing chords.
      If you want to sing right at the beginning of your song, it’s important to play a chord just before you sing.
      If you sing while playing a chord and then press the sustain pedal, you’re able to add a keyboard embellishment that doesn’t affect the harmony.
      By default, program change messages from your keyboard are ignored so you can change your keyboard sound without changing VoiceLive 2’s preset.
      Your mod wheel can be used to add or remove vibrato in harmony presets.
      For some songs, fixed scale harmony, not controlled by an instrument, works well.
      To find out more about fix scale please see the picture below. Thank you

    Hi all.

    just bought a Go Twin to use with an iPad Air Gen 4. I’m trying to find the TC power supply (5v, 2.5A, centre +ve) I can use in Australia. 240vAC, with our weird supply pin layout.

    Any Aussie users got a line on where I can get one? I don’t want to roll the dice on a parts-shop power supply that fries the unit AND voids the warranty.

    Can you specifically assign R or L output for guitar on te VoiceLive Extreme. I know you can assign backing track outputs/click outputs but my application involves using an acoustic and an electric on a splitter. When using the acoustic guitar with an acoustic guitar specific patch on the Voicelive 3 Extreme I'd like to send to an acoustic guitar amp and likewise when using the electric. The ability to designate R or L output would allow me to do this. Anyone know if this is possible?

      PedroRodrigues Hi RipChord, thank you for your post, please consider that regarding your question I will leave you below all the Output configurations for your VOICELIVE 3 EXTREME Output that can be set up set up in different configurations such as the XLR Output Tab, the XLR Output Level parameter and the different Guitar Jacks Mode.
      You can use the XLR Output Mode parameter to select the output mode for VL3X.
      Parameter settings:

      Stereo:
      -The left XLR output jack carries the left stereo channel.
      -The right XLR output jack carries the right stereo channel.

      Mono:
      -The left XLR output jack carries the summed (with effects) mono vocal & guitar channel signals.
      -The right XLR output jack carries the mono vocal signal without effects.
      -The dry channel includes Tone and Auto-Chromatic Pitch Correction (if applicable).
      -The dry channel does not contain HardTune effect(s).

      Dual Mono:
      -The left XLR output jack carries the summed (with effects) mono vocal channel.
      -The right XLR output jack carries the summed (with effects) mono guitar channel.

      You can also use the XLR Output Level parameter to set the relative level of the signal going to the XLR outputs.

      Parameter settings:

      Mic Level:
      Typically, the best setting when connecting to a mixer/PA. This level closely replicates that of a microphone going directly into the mixer.
      Line Level:
      When connecting to a mixer/PA line inputs, this setting is a good choice.

      When it comes to Guitar Jacks Mode you may select from three modes to direct your backing track and guitar to the guitar outputs. Especially when working with Backing Tracks, this allows for maximum flexibility.
      The Guitar settings acts as the “normal” or “default” mode, sending guitar signals from the ¼” outputs in mono or stereo (depending on whether you have one or both jacks connected).

      With the Track L / Guitar R setting, Backing Tracks (summed mono) are sent out the left Guitar ¼” output, while your guitar signal (summed mono) is sent out the Right Guitar ¼” output.
      With the Backing Track setting, Backing Tracks are routed to the guitar outs.
      If both outputs are connected, the signal is in stereo. If one is connected, the signal is summed to mono.
      This mode allows you to have a two-component Backing Track where “the click” is sent to one ¼” output and “the track” to the other. These signals can then be independently routed wherever you wish.
      Usually, you will have “the track” go to the front-of-house mixer and “the click” to a stage/ monitor mix or the drummer.
      If you’re listening to Backing Tracks over your headphones, you’ll hear the split tracks as described here, with “the click” on one side and “the track” in the other.
      For a tutorial on PA basics, Yorkville has an extremely useful “PA Primer” guide (PDF):
      https://yorkville.com/downloads/other/basicpaprimer.pdf

      There is also a great video episode covering Mixer Setup with TC-Helicon devices:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq0AOtafIjs
      Regarding your last question the Guitar output please see the text marked in yellow as effectively you are correct, never the less to effectively provide you with you option regarding the output of the VOICELIVE 3 EXTREME will only be complete with the information present on the picture below

      I hope this helps

      PedroRodrigues Hi carole , thank you for your post please consider that this is wide abroad question because there are a multitude of different aspects on the sound of the artists you have referred that would require a huge amount of research, Regarding your question is helping you kick start your investigation I will focus first on one of the artist that you mentioned and then you can replicate your own investigation to the remaining artists, when it comes to NIN I would suggest follow the link below:

    I have racked my brain trying to create a reasonable phase shifter in my Voice Live 3 Extreme. I change all of the parameters in the flanger, but it never gets close enough to use on the gig. Some of the other users posted a few ideas to try but no luck. PLEASE! Does someone have a workable solution?

    Also, TC Helicon staff, 1) could we please get this as a firmware upgrade?

                                    2) Get JUST Aux, and guitar for looping? (No vox). This way, we can create a soloing track while we sing?

                                         I'm using my aux for the drums I play with my foot.

      PedroRodrigues Hi RaynaldoMartine, thank you for your post, please consider that the VOICELIVE 3 offers an Inverse Phase effect but not a phase shift, a phase inversion is neither a time shift nor a phase shift, but simply a swap of plus and minus.
      The phaser and flanger create very similar sounds and can be used interchangeably, the flanger can sound more extreme than a phaser, so phasers can be used when more nuance is needed.
      Often confused due to their similarity, these processors all incorporate phase shifting in different ways.
      To set up the flanger on your unit please see the images below.

      To help you on your creative direction it may be useful to follow the link below:
      https://producelikeapro.com/blog/flanger-vs-phaser/

      When it comes the Firmware upgrade for your unit please consider that all the firmware are accessible via VOICESUPPORT 2.
      When it comes to new features on this unit please take in to account that this unit has been replaced by the VOICELIVE 3 EXTREME therefore we will not perform any more development on the VOICELIVE 3.

      Thank you

      Hi Pedro. Thank you for your detailed (and helpful) response. 1st: The image you told me to refer to, was an image of a dog eating a cupcake. Pretty sure that was a mistake. LOL! 2nd: I actually own 3 Voicelive Extremes (I play 6 nights a week, and I 've had to send two of the units back to Sweetwater for repairs at different times, but always need one for the gig, and a spare in the truck for backup. As a VL3 owner, I would like to still make my request for the firmware upgrade?


      Get JUST Aux, and guitar for looping? (No vox). This way, we can create a soloing track while we sing?

    Hello I just recently purchased a shure MV7X and my GOXLR.
    When I launch the GOXLR app, the mic set up screen doesn’t receive signal from my microphone. I have tested my usb, mic, XLR cable all on a different interface and confirm they’re all working. Does anyone have a similar issue? I’m aware the MV7X is extremely new, but I can’t figure out why my GOXLR won’t even pick up any noise from my mic. Any help would be gladly appreciated. Thanks

      PedroRodrigues Hi Pecakey, I would suggest performing a Factory Reset followed by a firmware update.
      Factory Reset: Hold the “Mix” and “Harmony” buttons while powering on. This performs a full factory reset including settings and preset
      To perform a firmware update please do the following:
      TC HELICON’s VoiceSupport 2 application connects you to firmware updates, new presets, and all the tools you need to save and load your customized SingThing preset packs.
      Head to http://tc-helicon.com/en/products/voicesupport-2/ to download VoiceSupport.
      Once it’s up and running, power up SingThing and plug it in to your computer via the supplied USB cable to access all the support and upgrade features for your product.


      When it comes to tune your voice please consider using the Global Pitch Correction gives your voice a little bit of a nudge to the note closest to what you’re singing.
      In some cases, it can be subtle or an extremely obvious Auto-Tune style as you increase the level towards 100%.
      Some presets have pitch correction built-in; when you turn on Global Pitch Correct, it will be active in the background all the time.
      You must also take in to account that you can use the Pitch Effect that tunes your voice to match the notes in a regular 12 note scale more precisely and offers three parameters that you can configure: style, shift, and gender.
      Thank you

    Expression pedal not working. First, i have owned both voicelive2 and voicelive 3 and have performed live with them for years. Im well acquainted with setup and functions. A friend recently bought a used one in great condition online based on how he saw i was using mine to control harmony volume levels. Bottom line- i cannot get the expression pedal to work for any function on his unit. I updated his firmware 2.200 build 366 and have tested it with the pedal i use successfully for mine (ernie ball vp junior) as well as Dunlop volume xmini and a new Moog expression pedal he bought to go with his unit. I tabbed over on the vocal page and set the expression to harmony level. Went to setup to calibrate and did the setup max down, setup min setup routine they all end up saying “failed, bad cable”. Have tried three different cables including the one that works fine with mine. I also tried the footswitch global option with the proper changes in the setup menu for the footswitch. I went thru to make sure everyone of his setup parameters were identical to my unit to make certain there was no buried anomaly in setup. When you push Genre/Store to get the software version and such…it does show that the expression pedal jack is sensed. I’m stumped! I did a google search and did see a topic about TCHelicon doing a firmware update at some point intime to fix the “expression pedal issue” and it appeared this may have been generated on this Facebook page…but i can’t find it. Sorry for the long story….but i really want to get this fixed for him.
    Any knowledge or suggestions would be appreciated.
