    Can the SingThing trigger vocal harmonies using only midi (with no audio) from a keyboard similar to the TC Helicon Perform VK?

    I would like to have the option of running my keyboard audio as a separate stereo signal to the main mixer board but retain the ability to trigger vocal harmonies from my keyboard.

      kiskadar69 I don't think it's possible.
      Q: "Sorry to say that, but you guys don't even show how to connect a keyboard in MIDI mode. Please show your ports. I have a SingThing and I'm so confused in connecting to my keyboard."(Behzad,2018)
      A: "Hey Behzad. With the SingThing you connect your keyboard via 1/8 connector in the Aux/Keys port on the back of the unit. The MIDI would be for setting up a MIDI controller to "Hit" the different effects. If you have any other questions you can find a lot of information in our manuals on our website under Support. Have fun and I hope that helped! (TC-Helicon,2018)

      • Triggering midi harmonies on TC Helicon SingThing from keyboard
        geobluesguy That's too bad. Keyboard midi harmony is an excellent feature on the Perform VK. Soundmen typically want vocals and instruments in separate channels for FOH mixing and the Perform VK's keyboard midi harrmony feature faciltates this. Thanks for the info.

    Revised - as I just received a USB-A to USB-A cable from Amazon and it doesn't work either...

    I've had a VL3 for several years, but gave up on it shortly after getting it.  Now I'm back. Firmware is v1.0.20 ! and needs updating.   

    I have tried using both a USB-A to micro-USB B cable and a USB-A to USB-A cable, both of which I have tried plugging into my mac and appropriate USB port on the VL3.  I have downloaded the VoiceSupport2 app.  When I run it with the VL3 on and plugged in as above, the program tells me there are no MIDI capable devices available.  It doesn't see the VL3 despite power on power off, unplug plug in, and anything else I could think of.

    To add insult to injury, if I click on the "More Info..." button for 'more information on diagnosing connection problems, I get a black screen telling Safari can't find the server (music-group.force.com).

    HELP!!!!   I am out of options with a VL3 with very obsolete firmware.

      Nigel67 One option would be to try and upgrade the unit through a USB key. Please see our KB article

        djmorgan17 Thanks. Just put in Care Request. But why is my Mac and VoiceSupport2 not seeing the unit???? And which USB connection are you supposed to use???? or can you use either???? Manual sucks - all kinds of information that should be in there isn't. Is there another resource with more detailed info like the above, and what each of the effects actually changes (gender, portamento, etc.) ??? And why is the More Info link broken - where on the web is the current info on troubleshooting connection problems??? Thank you.

      • Updating firmware ???   Help -  my mac w VoiceSupport2 doesn't see my VL3
        Nigel67 Have you checked that on the VL3 Midi Source is set to USB as I mentioned in my previous message.. This is the usual reason that the MAC and Windows machine are not seeing it. There is only one USB connector that you can plug a USB memory stick into which is the Type A. The Voicelive3 when purchased, would have been supplied with a USB Type A to a USB Type B Mini for connection between your PC and unit. Have you visited our KB article section which may have answered your connection problem? https://musictribecommunity.powerappsportals.com/en-US/knowledgebase/category/?id=CAT-01007

        djmorgan17 While we're communicating, can you tell me where VoiceLiveEditor (VL3 Free) from voiceliveeditor.com is safe to download. I find editing the VoiceLive 3 presets from the device itself extremely cumbersome and time consuming. Using an Mac-based editor with a full screen to work with would be so much easier. Would love to know your or others experience with it. Thanks!

It's author used to post on here,he was/is a very knowledgeable and helpful fella, until..... well,y'know... Uli B turned up and destroyed the community. It's totally safe.

    My PlayAcoustic unit came on with a blue screen only when powered up last night at the gig.

    What is the solution for reloading the firmware into it?  I found a video on the SweetWater website,

    however when I clicked on the link for the firmware/build version it wasn't there.  Maybe there is 

    a solution that I am not aware of.  I DID get the unit into 'all lights blinking' Boot Mode.  That's as

    far as I could get.    I'm stuck at that.

    Thanks

    I can't seem to find any vendors with TC Helicon Voice Live Touch 2 vocal processors in stock in the United States. I ordered two of them from separate websites a couple months ago. They are backordered and vendors keep moving date further ahead as to when their supplier might have available. Many other TC Helicon items are unavailable as well. Amazon shows considerably more expensive units from shippers in Japan but I'd rather not pay the higher price, they may take months to ship, and they may very well be backordered also. Used ones are going for exhorbitant prices on Ebay as it looks like owners are taking advantage of the shortage. Any word on when TC helicon might have the Touch 2 available for vendors would be appreciated. Anyone with knowledge of a vendor with new units on hand would be miraculous

    Just Purchased a Perform VE to add to my collection of Perform tools from TC Helicon. When i hook up my new Perform VE To my computer to update the software, voicesupport 2 shows that my Perform VG is inactive (which it should), and if I hit the scan button to find the new unit- it wont find my Perform VE so that I can update it. it says I have no TC Helicon devices hooked up to the Computer. If i wanted to update my Perform VG, I can hook up my perform VG and everything works fine, shows that i have the latest version etc etc...- yet with the Perform VE it wont even find the device... am i missing something or is the Perform VE Just defective ? or is the VoiceSupport 2 software defective? I don't have any other issues with the product, all the buttons and switches work fine- just wont find and update my product on the Voice Support 2 Software

    hi, 

    I connected from the yamaha mg10xu fx send output to the input 1&2 of the fx2000 using the Y cable, the 2 output from fx2000 to the line in of the mg10xu. Everything seen to work fine. When I go to the setting of the fx2000 and set it to stereo, but I only see the left side of meter level led. I'm just setting up for home karaoke.  what did I do wrong? I also attached pic. thanks

      • November 30, 2020
      • behringer fx2000
        Paul_Vannatto Those are not Y cables. They are called insert cables. For them to be Y cables (with signal going to both XLR or mono 1/4"), the stereo plug needs to be mono. Insert cables separates the tip of the stereo 1/4" signal to one of the XLR or mono 1/4" plugs and the ring (next band of the stereo plug) to the other plug.
        • November 30, 2020
      • behringer fx2000
        Paul_Vannatto I just checked the FX2000 manual and you can change the input mode (page 17) to mono. If you do that, simply use a mono 1/4" to mono 1/4" and plug it into input 1 of the FX2000.

    I need a (U.S.) AC adapter for my TC Helicon Voice Live 2...can't seem to get an answer from anyone at Music Tribe.  I've submitted three requests for help via support tickets on this site as well as contacting TC-Helicon and Music Tribe via Facebook...nobody answers or seems to care.

    And I can't seem to find a matching one (amps, inout, output, etc.) anywhere.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    TC Helicon voice live 3 extreme |

     

    Regrettably I reset my VL3X to factory settings thus losing the FX Automation preset of "Amazing Grace". Reading through these discussions I read that Pastor Leroy Wlliams also had had the same problem 2020-07-08.

     

    I couldn't find any reply, so looked Online and found :-

     

    https://musictribecommunity.powerappsportals.com/en-us/knowledgebase/article/5132. It explains that the preset is not embedded in the firmware because it would quadruple the size.

     

    A download link was made available via DropBox, but this no longer works. I would really appreciate it if this download could be reupped or made available to me in some other way.
