      PedroRodrigues Hi markusaltendorfer, thank you for your post. Regarding your questions please be aware that this unit only offers one MIDI input port that effectively responds to Control Change (CC), Program Change (PC) and MIDI Tempo (not MIDI Clock) information.
      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.
      When it comes to MIDI PC Messages the PERFORM-VK’s 3 presets correspond to Program Change Bank 0: 125, 126, 127
      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.

      Regarding the RPn/nRPn Implementation the RPN 0: Pitch Bend Sensitivity,this is a standard way to change pitch bend range.
      When it comes to MIDI Tempo, the Perform-VK responds to incoming MIDI tempo and will adjust system Tap Tempo accordingly.
      About Split Point and Transpose, when controlling harmony via MIDI, in either Notes mode or NaturalPlay, it is sometimes desirable to have one section of the keyboard designated to sending that control information.
      It could be the area that your left hand is, to play chords of harmonies.
      In order to designate an area of the keyboard to respond to, a Split Point is set. Any notes, either above or below the split point, are deemed useable by the system. Notes outside the range are rejected.
      To set the Split Point, hold the SET button and press the note on your keyboard that you want to act as the split note.
      Then, to choose a split ABOVE that note, release the split note and press a note ONE SEMITONE ABOVE your split note. To choose a split BELOW, release the split note and press a note ONE SEMITONE BELOW your split note.
      This creates a split, above or below, with no transposition, in order to set a split point AND transpose the incoming MIDI notes, you will choose a different note in place of the ABOVE/BELOW notes mentioned above.
      It will seem a bit confusing but does allow you to make both a split above/below point AND transpose either up or down. So, here’s a chart and some explanation.

      In the chart above, “X” is the split note, the point at which you want to split the keyboard, as explained previously.
      To facilitate things like “split above, but transpose down” we need to have settings both above and below your split point. That’s where the chart comes in.
      For example, if you want to split ABOVE middle C, typically known as C4, but transpose DOWN so that C4 is actually C2, you’d do the following:
      1. Hold SET
      2. Press middle C (C4)
      3. Press the note 6 SEMITONES DOWN from middle C (F#) If you want to split BELOW middle C (C4) and transpose up so that C4 is C6, you’d:
      1. Hold SET 2. Press middle C (C4)
      3. Press the note 2 SEMITONES DOWN from middle C (A#)
      You may need to experiment a bit to figure this out, but it does give you the ability to set your split point, split direction and transposition very quickly.

      Thank you

      markusaltendorfer Hallo Pedro, ich habe ein Yamaha Tyros 2. Wenn ich ein Midifile abspiele sind auf Kanal 16 die Vokal Harmonie Befehle. Diese sollen an das Perform VK gesendet werden. Muss ich jetzt das Keyboard einstellen das nur Kanal 16 gesendet wird. Oder wie Stelle ich das Perform ein? Aus deiner Liste bin ich leider überhaupt nicht schlau geworden.

    Hello!

    Why when I put the TC Helicon on a sound table in STEREO & MONO are more L than R??? Always is happening... in 2 or 3 sounds table and with new cables etc etc... I think it's a problem of the machine or of the configuration. 

    The only way to have the same L & R is in DUAL MONO.. not in MONO... not in Stereo. 

     

    The mode is in VOCAL PROCESSOR.

    Is it normal? Why is it happening?


    Thanks

      PedroRodrigues Hi willbone, thank you for your post, please consider that the VOICELIVE 3 EXTREME Output 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:

      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

      PedroRodrigues Hi LEOGATO7, thank you for your post, please ponder that this unit the Play Acoustic offers several parameters to set up the output such as:

      1)-The Vocal/Guitar (DI) setting, with this setting, vocal and Aux signals are sent over one XLR connector, and guitar signals over the other XLR.

      2)- With the Stereo setting, a stereo mix of Vocal, Guitar and Aux signals is sent over both XLR outputs

      3)-With the Mono Setting all effected vocal and guitar sounds are sent via the left XLR output.
      Dry vocals, with Tone and pitch correction, if you have set the Pitch Cor Amt parameter on the Input page to a value other than zero, are sent via the right XLR output.

      The unit also offers on the outputs stage tools such as the Vocal cancelation function and the Lead Mute parameter.
      The first tool that attempts to remove the vocals from a piece of music while the second tool mutes the lead vocal and only output the processed signals.


      1)- With the Off setting/ On setting
      When it’s on “Off set mode” no processing is performed on the Aux input signal.
      When it’s on “On setting mode”, Play Acoustic will attempt to remove lead vocals from a piece of music.
      This will create “Karaoke” style music for you to sing along to, including key information for harmony generation.

      2)- With the Off setting/ On setting
      When the Lead Mute parameter has the “Off setting” activated Lead Vocals are routed to the main mix.
      When the Lead Mute parameter has the “On setting” activated Lead vocals are removed from the main mix.


      I hope this clarifies the options you have available to configure your unit and how you must set it up to reflect your creative intentions.

      For a more information on how to set up your unit’s output please follow the link below to access the full manual for your PLAY ACOUSTIC, please check pages 21 and 27

    I wanted to install the latest update just because the internal mics are always doing feedback on the PA speakers no matter what and I could not find any option to turn off that mic or something about it. So I used to record no problem on LOGIC, but then I opened the newest VOICESUPPORT 2 and it wasn't being detected (VOICELIVE 3 icon appeared on MIDI DEVICES with a question mark below it, and the VOICELIVE 3 XTREME icon was on MY OFFLINE TCH DEVICES). It is recognized as a MIDI only, so I decided to do a factory setting restart. After that it is not recognized by the mac as a sound device anymore, Voicesupport2 and Logic as well. Tried in 2 different macs.

    It is crazy that something ended on making the VL3X useless for me, i'm very dissapointed of the many user unfriendly things about it. I'm begging for some help!!

      Mirsa Hey, you need to maybe install the 2.2 firmware again before because yours is not 2.2 after factory reset ?

      PedroRodrigues Hi OzPianist, thank you for your post, please follow the link below to access the tools and the guidance to perform a firmware update on your VL3X

      https://wsi.li/dl/ofsYxC2S3tR6teiZc/

      When the update process is concluded, and you wish to connect your VL3X to the VOICESUPPORT 2 it is important that you confirm that you do not have any DAW or any MIDI software running on your computer to avoid any issue connecting with VOICESUPPORT 2.


      To set up your VL3X with a PA, please see the set-up guide on the picture below.

      I hope this helps

    Hi everyone

    Had my Voicelive 3 Extreme for 18 months and all of a sudden it won't turn on.  No lights, screen, nothing.

    I haven't even gigged with it yet, so very disappointed.

    Has anyone had this happen?

    Hello Folks,

    I am seeing a dramatic decrease in Volume when running my Guitar and Mic through TC Helicon Live Play Guitar into my Fishman LB amp.  I have to turn volume up on the amp greatly to get enough volume.  Does anyone know what settings need to be tweeked to correct this?

    Input/ Output settings?

    Thanks, Randy McHugh

      PedroRodrigues Hi mchugh48, thank you for your post, form your description I would assume you are referring to the TC HELICON VOICELIVE PLAY.
      This pedal was designed to be connected directly with a Desk or a PA system .There are 3 settings for the OUTPUT

      1 . STEREO – XLR outputs receive a stereo mix of all voices and other inputs .
      2 . MONO – A MONO full-mix signal is on the LEFT and a DRY vocal is on the RIGHT .
      Any Tone and Pitch Cor Amt settings from the Setup menu are included on the RIGHT DRY channel .
      3 . DUAL MONO - A MONO effected voice signal (all voices) is on the LEFT and AUX is on the RIGHT.

      This is great for sending music to one channel of a PA and Vocals to another, especially in a Karaoke situation.
      Vocal Cancel – Attempts to remove the vocals from a piece of music .


      There are two settings:


      1 . OFF – No processing is performed on the aux input .
      2 . ON – Processing occurs to attempt to remove lead vocals from a piece of music .

      This process can create “Karaoke” style music for you to sing along to, including key information for harmony generation.
      The processing capability can vary quite a bit from song to song, depend- ing on the way the song was originally mixed .

      Lead Mute – Mutes the Lead vocal and only outputs processed signals .


      There are two settings:


      1 . OFF – Lead vocals are routed to the main mix .
      2 . ON – Lead vocals are removed from the main mix .


      Digital Out Level – Controls the USB output level .


      Headphone Lim – Controls the level at which the headphone output limiter engages.
      Levels closer to 0db allow for louder headphone output levels.

    I am contemplating using a TC Helicon VoiceLive Play as an effect with a H&A QU32 digital mixer.  Here is what I have in mind reading the manual.  Does this seem right?  My goal is lead vocal (dry) into unit from  the mixer and only harmonies/effects return (wet) to the mixer.  If you can suggest another TC Helicon product that might do better than the VoiceLive Play let me know.

    Scenario

    Aux in for musical input for harmony generation from mixer (line level) using "Live" setting

    Mic Input with vocal to be processed from mixer (can a line level be used instead of a mic level)

    Left Out - Dual Mono-a-Mono   Voices Only with "Lead" mute "on" so only the harmonies come through

    Right out - nothing, not needed

      PedroRodrigues Hi Wannjlw, thank you for your post, your proposed set up for the VOICELIVE PLAY seems to be configurable, nevertheless please take in to account that the VoiceLive Play Mic Input only accepts Mic Level. In this case you can attempt to use an adaptor that will help you manage the signal discrepancies, but please consider that is not an officially supported solution and we cannot guarantee the results. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Hey all, was wondering if anyone else had some problems when controlling the Voice Live Rack (or VL3 it happens to both) in Ableton. I'm controlling the Presets via midi on a song by song basis for synced BPM eg. It works well but if we ever mistrigger, turn off the tracks or restart a song it sends a message to turn the Transducer on. I've had a look and I can't figure out why this happens. Was hoping someone could have a fix.

     

    Cheers!

    Hello everybody,

    I want to perform hands-on, modifying in real-time the effects of VLX3. Is it possible to control the device externally via Midi knobs, especially with Arturia Beatstep or iOS TouchDesign ( CC/SysEx )? 

    Please help me with suggestions. Thank you.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Xeraphixos, thank you for your post, please ponder that this is a not official configuration process, due to the use of External tools but I can recommend you attempt the following implementation that we have confirmed with other customer that works.
      The below works successfully when triggering VL3X from Linkesoft Songbook via iRig MIDI2 interface.
      Triggering commands are entered on the Songbook edit page which operates in chord pro hence {} brackets.

      Syntax
      {midi:CC32.# PC#}
      Where CC32 is the bank number and PC is the program preset

      Bank 0 runs from 1 - 128
      Bank 1 runs from 129 - 256
      Bank 2 runs from 257 - 384
      Bank 3 runs from 385 - 513 Note VL3x only has 500 presets

      Also note midi starts at 0 and not 1
      This is important when you want a particular preset. The PC entered needs to be -1 from the preset you want

      Example for preset 1
      {midi:CC32.0 PC0}

      Example for preset 129
      {midi:CC32.1 PC0}

      Example for preset 257
      {midi:CC32.2 PC0}

      Example for preset 385
      {midi:CC32.3 PC0}

      Calculating presets:
      If you want preset 208 on the VL3x
      208 - 129 (which is starting number in the bank 208 falls into) = 79
      So syntax would be {midi:CC32.1 PC79}

      Again:
      If you want preset 494 on the VL3x
      494 - 385 which is starting number in the bank 385 falls into) = 109
      So syntax would be {midi:CC32.3 PC109}

      Its worth again noting on the VL3x the preset needs to be active to be selected. If there's nothing on preset 498 then the VL3x does not change when command is sent from the page on songbook you have chosen.

      I hope this helps

      Thank you
