    Just bought a Behringer UM2 and would love to register it for warranty and downloads. It is not obvious to me as to how to accomplish this.  Thank you.

    Hi all,

    Just joined today. I have a Nova Modulator in my chain and I was looking online to see if there were any boards that have a thread on user settings. I did a search on this board but didn't come up with anything. Anyone know of a site that has user settings posted?

    If I were to get a decimator 2 g string, how should I place it in my chain? I'm using my g system in my amp's effects loop (no 4cm). Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hello G System Users,

    I have a company called Gigwrx and we manufacture custom magnetic labels for midi controllers and pedals. Currently for Fractal Audio, Voodoo Lab and Line 6 products.

    www.gigwrx.com

    I'm considering adding the G system to our line. Is this something that would be of interest to the G System community? Does the G System accept magnets?

    Please feel free to comment or email me with ideas or information.

    depending what kind of interest we get, We may add this to our line in the near future.

    Sincerely

    Anthony

      elvis Hi! The GS is Aluminum (Aluminium for the rest of the world...), so I doubt that magnetic labels would stick.



      Is there any chance you could make labels with a non-adhesive sticker, like with Post-It notes? I think those could be quite popular. Alternatively, we could probably just buy a tube of the stuff, and a simple heavy-duty non-magnetic label would work.
      • April 15, 2016
    • boltrecords
      24fretslater There might be enough magnetic metal beneath the aluminum casing, you'd have to test and see if they stick... but thinking of magnets anywhere near something like that seems like a bad idea...Is there something that would cling and not leave residue?
      • April 20, 2016
    • boltrecords
      Thurston I think it's a pretty good idea, if the magnets work. The chassis is aluminum, someone would have to try it out. I can't see a magnet label having any bad effects. Not strong enough of a field.

      24fretslater Vinyl stickers would work best I think...with a dry erase markable area or something.

    I'm playing around with the new firmware. Really liking it, but would still like to see more looping functions able to be mapped - like "All Stop" for example - or even all the other looping functions. Although, I presume there must be a reason -that we non-programmers don't understand- why only certain looping functions are mappable. Yes?

    Also, In the manual addendum there is this:

    When you play a Loop Trigger, the on-screen
    button will now light correctly, just like the other
    effects do when they are active.

    What does this mean exactly? I am seeing no difference from before. There are no lights coming on for loop triggering, neither on-screen or otherwise(button light)...

      Hey Freddiprice.



      Hi there, I think we are all with you on this, but i think for now they have aimed the mapping at Loop A, don't know why ?? so record / play etc is for A only.



      Your other question,



      You can map a button to trigger and stop a certain saved loop you have in a slot ( only 10 available ) in a preset, say "HIT" to trigger slot 3 / track B.



      Anyway it whitens in the Hit window or wherever you've button mapped it to on main screen to indicate its live. It never used t to.

      Thanks Ronny,







      Yes, I see that it is only Loop track A that is mappable. It seems strange to me to have such a limitation. Aren't all loops/tracks the same, structurally? But the TC gods work in mysterious ways!



      And I didn't realize the point about mapping a button to trigger certain loops/tracks from within presets. I will look into that; it's an exciting point! I guess I misunderstood what that addendum was talking about altogether.







      Thanks again

      Heya,



      The reason we do just "Track A" is because we feel that the UI of the looper layer is too complex (changing menus, contextual stuff etc.) to work well "blind" from a switch.



      The main request for looper controls via external switches has been for "A simple looper with Rec/Play/Odub, Stop/Clear and Undo", and "Erase All" (since it's buried in menus).



      I don't think we're going to go down the path of adding all of the loop controls to the external switches. It's just too much of a confusing minefield without having lots of pop-ups etc. to show what's going on, and in that case you're better to be in the looper layer.



      Cheers,

      Craig

      Thanks Craig,



      I suppose I can see the point. However, it seems that precisely those three functions (Rec/Play/Odub, Stop/Clear and Undo) could be made available on a Switch 6 - 3 for track A and 3 for track B - without overextending the confusion much. I don't want to beat the dead horse, though.



      I do hope that Stop/Fade out and Auto-start on input (such as found on the Boss Loopstation and others) are still on the table for the looper!



      Nevertheless, It remains a stellar unit!!

      Hi Freddi,



      Yep those things are still on the table. I'd weight fade out as a more attainable option in nearer future because we've not really worked with audio trigger before.

    wonder if there is the same mic & guitar preamp in the VL3 extrem as it is in the VL3?
    So far I can remember in VL2 extreme there is a different one (the same in VL 3)?
    Sorry if this was asked before but found so far no info.
    Thanks!

      Yes, according to Craig. Fundamentally both the VL3 and VL3X are the same platform but with differences to the performance tools and increased memory, and a little more. However, it appears that TCH have "branched" the VL3x in such a way that the underlying foundation of the VL3 platform remains the same.



      This makes it possible for both the VL3 and 3x to share common guitar and vocal effects, and other updates that apply to both. Of course there will be updates specific to the VL3X that will not apply to the VL3 and visa-versa.

    Hi, This is the blurb from a shop in the UK.

    Is it correct about the new harmony models and upgraded effect also the Toneprint bit? I was under the impression it was just the BTs and automaton.

      Hi Ronny,



      I think it's a bit misleading, if comparing the effects with the VoiceLive 3 then they are identical, if comparing the VoiceLive 3 or the eXtreme to previous products then the effects have been enhanced and polished.



      TC-E toneprint technology is not a current feature of the eXtreme, not sure if it will get added down the line; maybe Craig has some insight.

    Hello everybody,

    I recently got a VoiceLive Play and installed VoiceSupport 2 (PC version) to explore and install new presets. I have some question regarding the usage of the software:

    1) There are a lot of presets in the cloud, which is nice, but I was wondering whether it is possible to filter them based on title, artist, band, etc. So far I haven't found any search bar or something similar. Let's suppose I am searching for an effect similar to Guns N' Roses. How can I find all the presets related to that band? Sometimes the titles are shortened and are not helping to identify the band or track.

    2) Is it possible to preview a preset and have and idea of how it sounds before installing it? Or do I always have to install it in the device and try it directly there?

    3) Is it possible to identify duplicate presets installed in the device? Because when installing some of the presets from the cloud, one could easily forget which were already installed in the device.

    So far I couldn't find any information in the manual (yes I RTFM), but I thought it would be better to ask. It would be nice to have those features in the software and make it more usable.

    Thank you very much.

    Best,

    Anthony

      Hi Anthony,



      1. We have search on our list of things we'd like to add in the future, but there isn't that ability currently.



      2. No, the preset information needs to be sent to the device before the settings can be loaded. There's no real-time connection between the device and the program so we need to blast the info across first. It would be cool though for sure. I'm just not sure how feasible a preview would be for us to implement.



      3. Not that I know of. I could see that being part of search though. I'll bring it up with the dev.



      Cheers,

      Craig

      I would also love to suggest a search feature. It's great that you can tag them with genres, but then you should be able to click the tag and search by that. It would be great to see a user-generated tag feature to each preset. Then we could organize by tag. Also, are there any plans to edit the preset on the computer? It would be amazing to be able to double click on the preset and edit it on the computer. This could possibly save time. I guess there's no ability to play them from the computer though, so maybe that just wouldn't work?



      Love the creating backups as gig sets idea. (I watched your video on it.) having so many presets to scroll through can def be overwhelming.

      Hi Jaya,



      We'd love to have search and it was something we pushed hard for during development. Unfortunately, it wasn't able to be implemented in the time frame for release. It's still in the longer term plans though.



      We won't be adding any kind of editing any time soon. It's just not something we want to put our energy into. Editors take a huge amount of work and satisfy a very loud but very small number of users.



      Cheers,

      Craig

      Agree wholeheartedly with Jaya re: editing off the box (and those "loud but very small number of users" you cleverly cite to diffuse the argument). I realize it likely is seen internally as a huge development cost with too little return (maybe most folks simply use the presets and making more is easier for TC Helicon and better business?). I have spent many hours with my recently purchased Play Electric and have no real complaints about flexibility and sound choices just it's lack of editing utility. Once I have the core of our sets tdiously tweaked adn cataloged in a Word document life gets easier. A real comprehensive editor would have been much better.



      It also uses some awkward save and backup terminology and practices that could be better clarified but realizing it is a pure back up image with all else focused on the box memory is useful.

      another vote for an editor. Even more specifically, I would like to be able to use a software interface to manipulate the settings on the VL3 in real time. Sorry, but the button/knob thing on the VL3 itself is terrible. So count me in on the vocal minority too.

    Which of these cables should I be using? I'm using a cat5 at the moment but not sure if I can use an cat5e or cat6

      bucketbot There you go:



      http://www.cableorganizer.com/articles/cat5-cat5e-cat6.htm



      Don't think there is much to choose between them as far as the G is concerned. All of them will work fine as far as I know. The differences are only relevant if you are running certain kinds of networks.

      Main problem for use in a stage environment is that all of them have comparatively weak cables compared to Guitar cables.



      Best bet is to go with something like the Variax Guitar cable or similar which is expressly designed for the purpose.
      • August 4, 2012
    • Tritjay
      neilbunker I have cat6 in my rig, cat5e should work fine as well. I didn't get the Line6 cable, but buying regular cables from an electronics store makes it cheap to have a backup, or to buy longer lengths. I just left my backup in the package and stuck it under the floor controller, it fits perfectly (I have my brain racked).





      I also haven't had an issue with the obviously cheap design of off-the-shelf cat cables. I mean, you can tell they are flimsy, but if there isn't any strain on either end and you carry a backup you should be fine. I log a lot of time with my G (3-4 gigs/week), and I've never had a problem with it.
      • August 4, 2012
    • Tritjay
      Tritjay Thanks guys! Yeah, I've got the cheap off the shelf cat5's too and I have a couple of spares. I was just wanting to get a better qaulity one with xlr style Neutrik ends just for piece of mind. I found some on Feebay but they were cat5e's. I just wanted to make sure it was compatible. I might sus out the Variax too, I didn't know about them.



      Thanks for the help!
      • August 4, 2012
    • Tritjay
      bucketbot Yeah, Not much to choose between the 3 types really so you're as well going with the cheapest as Neil correctly says.



      FWIW years ago when I had a Variax I had one of the Cables & it seemed pretty sturdy to me & had the Neutrik type connectors on it.
      • August 4, 2012
    • Tritjay
      welshboyo Both Cat 5, 5e and 6 are effectively exactly the same, same distances etc etc, Cat 6 has a a better internal sheathing (thats why it feels a little stiffer compared to 5) which makes it a little less flexible.



      FYI, you can run CAT5 in up to 100m runs with no signal degradation , now there's a stage for ya!!!!!



      Most of the CAT5 I work with on a daily basis is tough old stuff and should easily withstand the rigours of a gig, the only consideration is the moulded ends which you really need, anything else and you could find that the cable clamping on a plain jack might not be up to the tugs/pulls it may experience.

    I have just purchased the new BodyRez pedal, and feel the basic concept of this unit is great! My question is: Will there be user programmable updates to this pedal as TC gets more user feedback (via the toneprint jack)? I and many others feel the sound is too intense on the high end (comes across a bit strident), and that the mids are somewhat lacking in the mix. I realize much of this could be corrected by outboard EQ, but that kind of defeats the original purpose of the pedal, no? It would also be nice if the slight drop in apparent level (at full throttle) could be addressed as well.

    Thanks!

      • October 11, 2015
    • Radley
      Radley Decision made. Ironically, the lack of response from TC made the decision a no brainer. I will use the piezo acoustic algorytthm in my newer GT units as that sounds much more convincing that anything I could get from the BodyRez. I believe BodyRez was a great idea, but failed in the implementation...
