    Hey guys, looking for some advice...

    I recently picked up a new Performer VK for my keyboard so I can bolster my band's vocal harmonies.  However, I'm having difficulty trying to get it to work off my keyboard's note MIDI output. I don't want to run my keyboard audio through the Performer VK with my vocals mixed into one stereo feed because vocals and instruments are run into separate channels on our mixer (for obvious reasons).

    Is there a way the Performer VK can just listen to my keyboard's midi notes and work the harmonies off that, or can I run the headphone out from my keyboard to the Performer VK instrument input to achieve the same purpose, but not have the keyboard audio come out of the performer?

    Hopefully others have come across this and resolved it :)

    Many thanks!!

      PedroRodrigues Hi PeterMoody Please be aware that the PERFORM-VK responds to Control Change (CC), Program Change (PC) and MIDI Tempo (not MIDI Clock) information. To block incoming CC and PC messages, hold the Set button while powering on. Note data will still be accepted in this state.
      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.
      MIDI PC Messages The product’s 3 presets correspond to Program Change Bank 0: 125, 126, 127
      MIDI CC List 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.

      PeteMoody Thank you for your comprehensive reply Pedro :)
      What I actually discovered is that I don't need to plug the keyboard audio into the VK for it to pick-up the notes I play. Actually I merely had to plug in a MIDI cable from the keyboard out into the VK and it automatically picks the harmonies needed which is fantastic because the manual does not explicitly state this. I originally thought that MIDI only worked in "Notes Mode" but in fact it works in all Harmony modes.

      So to all other keyboard players out there who are loaded with the task of doing all the backing vocals in their band, this device is perfect for that!!

      The only thing I don't like about this harmoniser is that it follows the vibrato of the source voice which sounds very robotic. What would be great is if the harmoniser would just provide the additional harmonies but ignore or alter the vibrato so that they are not an exact copy of the source voice (like real backing singers do) and also turn down the sibilants on the harmony voices. That would create more realistic backing vocals.

      WilliamR Hello, William from musictribe here. Are you using a USB hub by any chance? If you are try plugging directly into the USB port instead.

    I have downloaded the software to my Mac, connected my Perform VE to my laptop successfully , but I don't know how to get any of the free preset packages. How do I connect Voice Support to the Cloud? 

     

    Thanks

      PedroRodrigues Hi, rcrome1 please consider this is where you’ll find any “online” presets that are available. Each device will have a different set of presets depending on what’s been released to date. Please confirm that you computer has a internet connection.
      You may drag a cloud preset pack directly to the Backups area to create your own local copy of it. This allows you to rename or reorder presets, something you can’t do directly to the Cloud based presets.
      When you first synchronize, you’ll see a list of presets that are currently on your TC-Helicon device. The presets have various icons and colours that show both types of presets and their state.
      The name of the preset area will change depending on what you have selected on the Browser side of the screen.
      • Workspace – the presets most recently synchronized with your device
      • Backups – If you click the “parent” or top-most Backups button, you’ll see icons that show all backups and/or backup groups, like the group in the earlier example
      You may double click on a Backup Group to “dig” deeper and expose any individual backups within that group.

      • How do I connect my Voice Support 2 for my Perform E to the Cloud to get the free presets?
        rcrome1 Thanks for the response. I understand how I should be able to see the presets but they are not there under the "Cloud" section. I can successfully connect my Perform VE, I can update to the most current Firmware, I can access support through the Voice Support 2 help tab (that is how I communicating now) so I know I have internet connection. I quit my web browsers before connecting my Perform VE in case there was some type of security block , I also turned off my Firewall in case that was causing a problem. I did submit a service ticket through the help section too in case you can't tell me how to fix this . The screenshot shows how there is nothing in my Cloud presets available. THE ONLY THING I can think of is I could not find a Voice Live 2 download on your download page specifically for PERFORM VE so I downloaded one of the HARMONY Voice Live 2 downloads assuming the software was the same for all devices since you can manage them all with Voice Live 2.

      rcrome1 Thanks for the response. I understand how I should find the presets, but none are there. I successfully updated to the latest firmware. I took the step of quitting my web browsers before connection in case that caused a problem. I have turned off my Firewall too. I can access the internet through the support tab on VoiceLive 2, because that is how I am communicating with this forum. But nothing shows up under the Cloud tab. . I did submit a service ticket since I have tried several times to connect all unsuccessful.

    I've opened 2 support tickets and have not gotten any return contact regarding the issue.  One ticket was inexplicably closed out as "problem solved".  I've tried calling TC helicon directly but, despite it being within the regular business hours, am told y automated message that I've reached them outside of regular business hours.  I just want to get my pedal fixed. The dial and 1 of the stomp switches has broken off just through normal use. I'm a regularly gigging musician and this pedal is a fixture for me.

      JacksonMace I agree with you ... I phoned as well and instead of connecting to a "real person" it went to dial tone. I'm a newcomer to Tribe but so far ... it's been frustrating. Just purchased a VoiceLive 3 so I sure hope the customer support will materialize from somewhere.

        ChrisEdwards1 Hi Jackson, if you have not yet done so I would recommend submitting a support ticket. This can be done by going to the support tab at the top of the page and scrolling down to the relevant are i.e. Service, Technical, Spare parts. If you do already have a case open could you please share with me your case number and I will investigate further.
        • December 29, 2020

        JacksonMace Thanks for the reply Chris. I was thinking that informational questions like mine didn't really require a support ticket. I kind of assumed those were more for repairs. I see someone else has replied to my question. It looks as if they searched the site and found someone else's questions that were similar to mine and then sent me the replies. Anyway thanks for getting back to me.

        JacksonMace Oh ..... and when I did look at a support ticket ... it requested a serial number. My question was being asked so that that I could decide whether or not to buy a Voicelive 2. So I couldn't proceed.

        ChrisEdwards1 Hi Jackson, I am glad to see your question was answered and please also accept my apologies I did not see your previous question. For future reference if you did require to get in touch with us via the ticketing system there is a Pre Sales section which will not request information such as serial number.

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Cheyenne, I hope you are well. Looking at our system I can see responses have been sent out on both of your cases and my colleagues dealing with them are currently awaiting a response. It is highly possible the responses could have routed to your spam or junk folders so I would recommend checking these locations. Please let me know if you cannot find them and I will ask for them to be resent.

        CheyenneGoff Perhaps if emails are not getting through, the musictribe messaging system could be used? As bars and restaurants (hopefully) open soon here in Michigan, I'd love to not miss a beat with my beloved PlayAcoustic.

        ChrisEdwards1 Hi Cheyenne, do you have a different email address I could have my colleague add to his response?

      CheyenneGoff [email protected] is another one. I don't understand why I'm not getting email communications as I'm receiving notifications for responses to this message board...?

      • Play Acoustic Pedal
        ChrisEdwards1 Hi Cheyenne, I have asked the response to be resent to the email address on your account along with the new one provided. My only other thinking as to why the responses may not be reaching you is that your email provider is blocking them, this is just a guess at best though and I cannot fully confirm this is the cause. It may be worth trying to see if you can set approved accounts just in case this is the issue.

    Hi there, I have a TCHelicon Voice Live and have recently bought a Harmony Control Guitar pedal.

    I have followed religiosly the set up intructions and all I get is the following on the front of the pedal.

    All lights illuminated in red, no ability to use the Tuner to tune my guitar, no sound through into the amp and the midi cables aren't connecting the Voice Live.

    I fear that the bank of red lights tell me something is wrong and nothing is registering at all. See pic below...

    I have tried multiple 1/4 inch jack cables and two guitars, two amps and no life.

    Can you help please?

     

    Thanks 

    Gill

    Hi fellow TC's. I've now spent around 4 hours trying to figure out why the metronome on my VL3X is silent! No matter what I try, can't get a peep out of it.

    Output is dual mono into a 2-channel acoustic combi

    SWitched it off and back on again!

    Vocals going through OK

    Looping going through OK

    The MET is running with purple light flashing

    Settings are as per screenshots. 

    Does anyone have any ideas?

      PetGerbil Yep, Gary's right. All your metronomes have fallen out...

      Errr....Sorry.
      Have you twiddled one of the small mini knobs ? That should bring up the "Mixer" section, where you can set whether the metronome comes out of the Outputs or just the headphones. Also it's volume etc...Have a poke about in there.

    • ColinChettlebur
      ColinChettlebur They say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit... I couldn't disagree more! With all the gloom and doom around, a bit of old fashioned p**s taking brightens the day! Thank you all your helpful comments :D . Pet Gerbil, I've checked the floor all over the house, even emptied the vacuum cleaner bag, can't find them, so I don't think they've fallen out. (Nice one by the way)

      Fact is, despite the Left XLR being labelled mono, the Dual Mono mode is intended to be run to 2 channels in a mixing desk using both XLR's, and for some reason, the Met signal routes via the right XLR. In fairness, the diagram on P35 shows both XLR's in use, no guitar output. But that does mean the Met signal is in the guitar channel. Any road up, changed it to mono and, behold, the lost metronomes reappeared, one of them holding a fishing rod. What is odd, though, is it still gives dual mono output (guitar and vocals separated). Go figure.

      With that hurdle crossed (thanks to 'TC Helicon Voicelive fans' on Facebook), I'm optimistic I'll actually play some music through it before 2021. Stay safe everyone.

    Hi! Is there some sort of block diagram that what goes into a guitar processor. I can't understand why the drive turns off the amp, and the compressor lives its own life, can work on its own as an Overdrive and not respond to the output equalizer...

    • Potapov
      PetGerbil If you've got that diagram, then I assume you've got this one ?...
      I'm not too sure myself what goes where, But I think the "drive" block just replaces the gain part of the "Amp" setting when activated, leaving the other settings of the "Amp" unchanged.
      At a guess, this is because it is much quicker to swap between 2 or 3 settings of the "Drive" part, rather than have to reload into memory all the settings of the "amp". Most of which wouldn't need to be changed if all you need is more gain.

        Potapov Yes, thanks for the diagram. Glad that wah-wah goes in front of the drive. You can find a good resonance to create an amazing sound for heavy metal. After I figure out where the fault is and what makes the overload in the guitar path...

    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.

      • 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.
