    Hi I'm a guitar player and recently purchased a TC Helicon Talkbox Synth about 2 months back, I have a classic Tube talkbox but wanted to get away from tube/microphone set up, after extensive research I like the Talkbox synth simplicity and pedal format - but in practice it is not a simple effect to use the way it is currently configured. 

    My main concern with this product versus the regular talkbox is the ability to sustain notes when not vocalizing or talking into the mic.

    My band plays Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith and the talkbox effect sound is good, but I cannot talk into the Microphone to trigger the talkbox synth for 40 seconds without taking a breath - is there a way to add a note sustain feature for a second or 2 seconds? 

    When using a regular talk box you have the Tube in your month and can play guitar and breath as needed and it will produce the talkbox sound, with the Talkbox synth if you are not talking into the mic or breathing the sound cuts out - not ideal and it's very abrupt.

      Good suggestion. I totally get where you're coming from and a hold feature would be useful for those long notes. I'll put a note in regarding it as we go forward with new products and implementations.

    I have a TC Helicon VoiceTone Single H1 Intelligent Harmonizer and when I use it with my wireless Shure system will activate the pedal when I start to talk or sing into the mic. This does not happen when using a wired mic.

    Anyone experience this and have a remedy

    Thank you!!

      Hey @WhiskeyJaxx,
      My suspicion is that you have Mic Control activated and the pedal thinks you have our MP-75 microphone attached.  There's a little button on the right side of the pedal labelled "MIC CONTROL", ensure that button is depressed out and this issue will hopefully stop.  Cheers!

    I'm wondering about the vocal gender settings in the harmony tab.  There's no mention of these in the reference guide, or on any of the videos I've seen.

    What do the numbers represent?   What does going positive or negative do?

      The number represents the frequency shift applied to the formants. A negative number shifts the formants down, and a positive number shifts the formants up.


      The formants are a set of resonant filters in the human vocal tract within a fairly well defined range of frequencies. The formants are also specific to particular sounds - notably vowel sounds.


      The smaller and tighter the vocal tract, the higher the formants - so children have very high formants, women are slightly lower, and men lower still.


      When pitch-shifting a voice, formant correction is required to avoid making the shifted voice change character too much (the chipmunk effect when pitching up). Voicelive harmony automatically applies formant correction, and then you can tune the corrected formants by shifting up or down to achieve a specific effect (male to female, female to male, female to child, male to basso profundo).


      Good formant correction is hard - it can be achieved by taking a FFT of the frequency domain FFT (cepstrum analysis) to identify the relatively-static frequency elements of the formants, and then using that information to move specific frequency elements in the frequency domain FFT higher or lower.


      I don't know what the specific numbers in the Voicelive harmonizer mean, but at a guess I think it means FFT bins shifted, which means a frequency shift of some discrete amount based on the number of samples in the fft and the sampling frequency, neither of which I know.

    I have a Voicelive 3 and when it is powered up in just stays in the Loading mode. This is my 3rd VL3 EX. It took me a while to get the sounds the way I like and I can't seem to dial my others in to get the same sound. How can I get my sounds off the unit? Computer Desktop somehow? 
    also can I return it for repair?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Olivaproducciones, please download the recovery file in the below link. You will also need to download MIDI-OX in order to send this file to your device.

      https://we.tl/t-dGyQJajWqp

      Doing this should recover your unit if it has failed during a firmware update, however, if after trying this you are still experiencing issues please submit a technical support case so we can assist further. To do this go to support at the top of the page and scroll down until you see the technical support tab, clicking this tab will open up the form, and once submitted you will be provided a case number.

    I have used this product for years owned three, sorry to hear that this unit has been disconituned. they last me about 3 to 4 years as I perform mostly outside in a humid sea climate 100 shows a season. what happens is when the Harmony button is engaged it effects the guitar sound (Chorus like) also I have noticed recently that I am getting high pitch squeal/feedback when using the harmonies. My levels are all good. anyway to service this or is the unit going south?

    My son and I just purchased a VoiceLive Play, and we are confused about how the presets are supposed to work. After watching all the tutorials it seems to us that the preset should be active and processed when selected without pressing the Hit button. For example, if we selected Bari White as our preset we expected our voice to be altered by default, but it is not. The Bari White preset is only output if we press the Hit button. It is our understanding that the Hit button was used to apply secondary effects to the active preset. We have poured though all the settings, but there appears to be no global setting for changing the preset behavior. Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      kiskadar69 1.Select the Barry White preset
      2.Press the EFFECTS button.
      3. Go through all the effect blocks (uMod, Delay, Reverb, Harmony, Double, Hardtune, Transducer) and where the CONTROL parameter is HIT, set the CONTROL parameter to ON.
      4.Press the STORE button and save the new Barry White preset.

    I just bought a goxlr mini along with a rode podmic. I got everything hooked up and no matter what I do to the eq in the software for the goxlr my audio comes back sounding like I am talking through a tin can. I have done everything from shutting off all other mic inputs as well as creating noise supression in my studio and nothing has worked. Any help would be amzing!

    Hi!

    I just bought a TC Helicon Perfomance VK and I would like to know how to do the connections on a digital soundcraft ui16 soundboard. 

    I'm using my keyboard Roland FA-O6B with an inhalambric Shure microphone. I'm an amateur singer and piano player at church. 

    I love the Perfotmance VK, works great for our small church, but I don't know how to do the connections correctly...

    Anyone can help me?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Valeria, please take a look at the attached photo of the setup diagram from the user manual (this can be downloaded here https://www.tc-helicon.com/product.html?modelCode=P0DEE). Where the mixer is placed circled in red would be your ui16, you will simply need to run from the L&R outputs of your Perform VK into 2 of the combo inputs on the ui16. Hope this helps.
