    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

    I'd like to drench my harmonies in reverb, but don't want to change the reverb on my solo voice. Is that possible with my Play Acoustic?

    I have a preset that used naturalplay. I had my foot on the harmony button too long and it changed the setting to a fixed key. I saved the preset not knowing this had changed. Now I want to get it back to auto. The manual says how to go from auto to fixed, but not the other way round.  BTW, there was another report like this from back in 2014 but there was no answer.  

    I've spent over two hours scouring the VL3X manual, product FAQs, and tribe messages wihtout any success.  Surely there's a simple way to do this, but I can't find it in the manual or in the musictribe message board.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Guys,

    I own 2 Voicelive 3 Extremes and am wondering if there is a new version in the works?

    Obviously, I'm a fan and I use them quite often. (9 shows in the last 10 days)

    I'm trying to plan for the future and would love a heads up if something similar etc is coming out soon by the guys of TC Helicon.

    Thanks a Million,

    Paul Strolia

    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:

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

      -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):

      There is also a great video episode covering Mixer Setup with TC-Helicon devices:
      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

    Hello people, I would really like to have an overall volume control on the VK. This could be done by pressing quickly set to control volume insted of LED brightness. LED brightness could be controlled by other means, this is not an important feature to have such a quick access.

    Hi everyone!!! I have TC Helicon SingThing almost two years,I think with no firmware updated(1.0.0.)...My problem is: When I want to tune my guitar on TC's tuner,when is on 440Hz, It's out of all standard tuners...It,s not a problem,I tune my guitars on other tuners,but my harmony intervals not OK,especially when i play,for example am9,dm6,or similar stuff...If am download new firmware,maybe things will go better!? Maybe my tuner goes in right 440tune,because I think that my singthing "hears"different harmnic structure than normal,and on that base he made,a non quite good harmony??? Need someone who can advise me...Help!

      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 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

    I have a TC Helicon Play Electric, and I need to find a replacement rotary switch S1, mine has been damaged by a hard fall. Anyone know the manufacturer or part number of that switch? Or even better, where I can buy one? Many thanks.
