    I use a wireless Keytar for lead breaks, but the harmonies stop when I play the keytar. I have a sequencer track ready to go for the harmonies, but it won't change the harmonies. How do I set up the VLT 2 so the harmonies work from a sequencer track?

      Hey @AlanMinnear,
      Can you please expand on what you mean by "sequencer track"?  Is this just a MIDI track with MIDI notes?  If that's the case, you can run it into the 5-pin MIDI input on Touch 2, and in the Harmony effect set the key to "Auto".  Cheers!

      Hello @Santhos31 


      Have you been successfull finding Vysor Editor for Voiceworks Plus yet?


      It must have been available for free a while ago: 


      https://www.kvraudio.com/product/vyzor_editors_for_tc_helicon_by_tc_helicon


      I really don't want to spend $159 on Midi Quest Essentials If this single program used to be freeware.


      Regards,


      Frank

      Santhos31:


      I just came across your post while doing a desperate search for a firmware update for my Voiceworks Plus Harmonizer unit. I was just able to find the original editing program that you may have been looking for so maybe there is a way that I can get it to you. I will attach a couple of screen shots of what it looks like on my Mac.  Also, if you have a Voiceworks Plus you might have one of the updates that I am looking for. My unit (which is virtually new and unused in the original box) still has the original firmware version of 1.01. I have not been able to find version 1.21 which I think is the last available update but perhaps you have it. Please let me know. I look forward to your reply!


      Pete

    Hi, my question is as the title shows. Does harmony work with karaoke? Thanks!

      Hey @Eli,
      Perfrom-VK gets its chordal info from a few sources: the MIDI input, the instrument input, the auxiliary input, and the RoomSense microphone.  Perform-VK dynamically switches between these sources - when one goes silent it'll start listening to whatever is giving it signal, with the RoomSense mic being the last resort.  So in your case you'd likely want to be sending the karaoke track to the auxiliary input, and as long as the track clearly represents the chords being played then harmonies will work great.  Our harmony algorithm needs to be able to hear at least the root and the third of each chord to properly identify what's being played - so for example a track of an acoustic guitar would be great, but a track of just drums likely wouldn't contain enough musical info and harmonies would sound weird.  Basically, yes it should work but it really depends on the track - that'll just take some experimentation on your part.  Cheers!

    I purchased a VoiceLive3. Gigged with it for a year. The power input socket went bad. Never left it plugged in while not in use. Needed a rig to gig.. so I bought a VoiceLive3 Extreme.. a year later the same thing happened. Is this a common/fixable issue? I’m a little disappointed in the quality vs the price I paid for these items. Please help.

      This can just be the mechanical act of plugging/unplugging the power cord onto the unit. It should be more robust, I agree. I don't have a VL3, but a VLPE, and I put it on a pedal board witha PSU so I never have to plug/iunplug the power directly onto the unit.

      Hey @Ghia,
      In VoiceLive Touch 2 you can have up to 9 favorite presets, and each of these favorites is mapped to one of the 9 buttons on the main 3x3 matrix.  You can't remove presets from favorites, you can just overwrite a favorite slot with a new preset for that slot.  To map favorites, navigate to the preset you'd like to add to your favorites, then press and hold one of the 9 matrix buttons to map the current preset to that favorite slot, it'll ask you to confirm and that's it.  Cheers!

    Voicelive 3(X) Looper has three loop banks if understand correctly: Loop A, Loop B, and Loop C.  Is Loop C only accessible after using either A or B first and then using the SWAP function to activate it?  If I'm correct on this are there any plans on a new firmware update to make this obsolete and making access to Loop C more direct?  Every comparable loopstation (Headrush, RC-300) has direct access to the third loop without extra tap dancing.  That and the ability to Bounce a loop from one bank to another would be awesome!!!  ?????

      You can use SWAP before recording anything to record into loop C, but you still need to use SWAP (which makes using all 3 loops hard).


      As for updates, there have been no updates for the VL3X for 2 years, so the general feeling is that there are unlikely to be any (even with no replacement product in sight). I know that @TCH-Spencer continues to collect feature requests, but I've basically given up hoping.


      Even if there was, I doubt that fundamentally redesigning the looper would be included. However, I'd love to be proven wrong.

      Hey @Mayaman72,
      Provided you're on the latest firmware (366) you can hold the "Util" footswitch to begin recording directly into track C, or if track A is already looping you can press the same footswitch but it's labelled "Swap" and that'll record into C as well.  Page 136 of the manual covers the Swap button if you're interested.  Cheers!

    I am a newbie so please excuse question that might have been dealt with previously

    I have a VL3E and Play Acoustic

    My questions are:
    1.) I would like to get the chopper effect from the VL3E onto the Play acoustic is this possible?
    2.) I would also like to get the effect Group Shout preset 49 on the Play Acoustic onto the VL3E is this possible ?

      Hey @DidjMaz,
      Unfortunately the answer to both of your questions is "no".  PlayAcoustic is pretty limited when compared to VoiceLive 3.  There isn't any Chopper effect, or even an equivalent.  As for the group shout, that's not in PlayAcoustic either but you may be able to get close by using the doubling "Shout" style in combination with a couple harmony voices?

    What will be the set up or if there is any preset for Cranberries songs in the TC Helicon Voicelive Play?

     I own a perform V  however it does not fit on my microphone stand and it is very difficult to change the effects during a performance.  I am considering purchasing a mic mechanic or a voice live play.  I need something very simple that I don’t really need to change the settings on too much. I sing popular type rock. 

     Can you please make a suggestion for me? I know they perform V has doubling  I don’t see this on the mic mechanic and not really sure if I need it. Mostly I want tone, pitch correction and a little fuller voice with a very small amount of reverb/echo.  I am not a pro so I need something very simple. Please help, thank you

      Hey @Dale11,
      It sounds to me like the Duplicator is the pedal for you.  It has doubling, reverb, pitch correction, and Tone.


       


      Also in regards to your Perform-V not fitting on your mic stand, please check out David's rant.  You might just need to put some muscle into it, it's very unlikely that you'll be able to break the plastic on the Perform-V's mic clip by forcing it on there.

      The Duplicator looks pretty darn nice....and SIMPLE...which is good.  I really love my VoiceLive Play a lot though.  I like having presets.  Truthfully I don't end up using much more than what that Duplicator can do, but I have found it beneficial, as a backup singer, to be able to totally disable my mic with a muted preset, for songs I don't sing on, for example.  I don't see how this unit would let you adjust the gating sensitivity, for example, where with the VoiceLivePlay you have more options to configure how all that stuff works.

    Is it possible to use a single foot pedal to control the perform VK to toggle between talk and harmonies?
