    I'm having a hard time finding any documentation on the switch3 mapping features of the latest firmware for Voicelive Play.

    I am trying to map any one of the switches to the "hit" function so I can trigger it remotely.

    Thank you

      kiskadar69 Starting from a certain firmware, the blue VoiceLive Play has a CONTROL parameter, which must be set to "CUSTOM", so the Switch-3 switches can be programmed with the following functions: Loop Rec/Play, Loop Stop/Clear, Loop Undo, Loop Start/Stop, 1 BTN Looper, Tap Tempo, Harmony On/Off, Delay On/Off, uMod On/Off, Transducer On/Off, Hardtune On/Off, Doubling On/Off, Reverb On/Off, Preset Down, Preset Up, Hit. If you assign the Harmony or Delay function to one of the buttons, you can also select the momentary mode for both separately.
      Unfortunately the procedure is not described in the VoiceLive Play manual (TC-Helicon has not updated the manual). Press the SETUP button and scroll to the tab where the Switch-3 mode can be set (LOOP MODE or CUSTOM). If no such setting is found, the VoiceLive Play firmware must be updated.

    Hello,

    I'm from Spain and I'm user of a voiceplay touch 2 sice 4 years, always very happy with all his options. Since the last week, when I plug in the machine, it doesn't turn on. It has always done it automatically and now it doesn't react. What can I do?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi,

    Hoping for some help or guidance on this.

    I've had the VK for probably 2 years.  When I first got it, I set up channel 3 to receive midi and this has work great all this time. I set Program changes and CC# all on this channel including note data for harmonies.

    Today I had to reset the unit to factory defaults. Now when I try to set to Channel 3, I am getting multiple channels setting to receive midi instead of just channel 3.  I have tried many different ways of only sending data/note/s from keyboard (Novation Launchkey mini), via Roland UMone, then through cakewalk to set the channel to send on. No matter what I do, multiple channels are setting. I have followed the manual instructions. From Cakewalk, I solo channel 3, hold down set while pressing notes on the keyboard. I've tried short holds all the way to very long holds. If I aim to set channel 3, channels 3 to 11 are now receiving midi data. If I try to just set channel 16, then I get: 16 plus 1 to 7.

    Am I missing something simple. It has been sometime since I first set this up. I have read over and over the manual but to no avail.

    Thanks in advance.

    Robi.

      kiskadar69 I think this is because the "8 channel natural" (8 spaced rainbow dots) or "8 channel tight" (8 closed rainbow dots) harmony setting is selected. Choose another harmony setting. See page 6 ("Editing Effects") of the "TC-Helicon Perform-VK User Manual".

    Hi everyone. 

    Does anyoine knows how to erase at once all imported loops, including the ones already used in the presets' slots, I mean the entire user content?

    I managed to erase the slots individually, within the presets, but not to completly erase the imported loops from the device.

    And I'm still afraid to press Reset to the original settings, afraid of not losing something important that is not user content. Is this the only solution?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Hello everyone and thanks for your help.
    After testing the Looper of Voicelive 3, I have 2 questions for which I didn't find the answers in the manual, or in any tutorial. Can anyone with more experience help me with some advice?

    1. Which is the maximum length for an imported loop in Voicelive 3 or the maximum length of a loop that one can use in a preset slot? (also because I'm trying to imagine the benefit of a backing track compared to a loop "as long as a song").

    2. After testing the looper overdub, I tried to find out if there is any possible way to use the overdub for comping (I mean, using the overdub to replace a vocal take with a better one, so RECORDING THE NEW TAKE IN THE PLACE OF THE PREVIOUS ONE, not just overlapping the vocals and recording the new take over the previous take).?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello there. I recently purchased TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch 2(VLT2) and I need to start using it in my studio to create harmonies based on the chords of my songs. I've tried to connect VLT2 directly to my PC through the USB cable but unfortunately my VLT2 is not detected in my favorite DAW(Studio One 5). So my workaround is to route the VLT2 main outs to my audio interface(Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd gen) and then connect my audio interface main outs to the VLT2 Aux Input. Now my question is: Can the VLT2 Aux input be overloaded if I connect the said audio Interface's main outputs(TRS Outputs) to the VLT2 Aux input?

      PedroRodrigues Hi Osotwa, thank you for your post, please ponder TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch 2 does not allow multitracking via USB so you would to have to configure a STEREO IN and STEREO OUT to allow a DAW configuration. Please consider that regarding the VOICELIVE TOUCH 2 outputs, the XLR Output marked in blue will produce a mono signal.
      The 1/4” TRS Outputs marked in red are the main outputs, they can be configured for Mono, Dual Mono or Stereo output in the Setup menu.
      When you set the Output parameter to Stereo, the left and right audio channels are output to the left and right ¼” TRS jacks when connected to a stereo monitor or PA system.
      The XLR jack will output the left side audio only.
      Mono setting (default) The factory setting is that the left TRS output and the XLR output contain the summed mono mix including effects.
      The right TRS jack outputs your dry voice with Tone applied to the mic input signal but no effects. Sending both a mono mix of the effects and the dry signal to a mixing desk is useful when a live sound engineer wants to control the balance of wet/dry mix at the mix position.
      In this case, set the Lead Mute parameter to On.
      Dual Mono Setting When you set the Output parameter to Dual Mono, the left TRS output and the XLR jacks output the effected vocal, and the effected guitar signal is output from the right TRS jack.
      In this configuration, a sound engineer can control the level balance between the mono wet vocal, such as vocal with harmonies and effects and the mono wet guitar signal.

    Hello I am very new to using pedals! So please please take into consideration I may sound super simple. 

    I have the original TC helicon voice live touch. 

    I am going on tour soon so just brought one of these. My voice is super auto tuned in my songs so I thought hard tune would be perfect, except I can't seem to find where I can set hard tune to a specefic kEy. 

    however I did find specific keys in harmony. But it doesn't seem to work with the hard tune as maybe the specific key is just for when you using harmony's.

    does anyone know how to help, please please explain things to me as dumb as u can. 

    best 

     

    and thank you

        PedroRodrigues Hi Mastrofm, for any questions please make a post and do not request information as a reply to someone else's post. More please bear in mind that you are requesting information for a Behringer unit on the TC HELIOCN page. Please post your question on the Behringer page. Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi chutney30th, thank you for your post, please ponder that you can enter a key and scale when you a) know the key of the song you are singing and b) have a pitch reference to sing along with such as an instrument or mixed music. Choose a preset such as #3: Tuned Up + Down to hear the effects.

      To enter the Harmony key and scale of your song:

      1. Hold the Harmony button to enter its edit menu.
      2. Press the arrow buttons until you locate the Key: menu.
      3. Slide along the Slider to choose the key.
      4. Tap the right arrow to enter the Scale: menu.
      5. Slide to choose a Major scale e.g. M1, M2, M3 or a minor scale e.g. m1, m2, m3.Try each scale for best fit with your music.

      Now, sing the song with your accompaniment. By default, the key and scale you set will remain in effect for all harmony presets.
      If you prefer to save different keys for presets, turn the Key/Scale Gbl parameter in the Setup menu to Off.

      Please note that regarding Custom scales: Scale customization is not possible in Touch.

      Some presets ported from VoiceLive 2, e.g. those with “Drone” in the name, will show Cu for scale.

      This indicates the scale is custom, though it cannot be edited further in VoiceLive Touch. I hope this clarifies this matter. Thank you

    Hi,

    Is there any way to send midi tempo values from Microsoft Word to the Voicelive 3 Extreme to set tempo?  I use Microsoft Word files for my lyrics, and when I open up the individual song files, I'd like to have a tempo setting in each song file with individual tempo values to be sent automatically via USB midi to my Voicelive 3 Extreme, automatically setting the tempo.  Is that possible?  If not, is there a way around it?  I'm using Windows 10 Pro.  Any help is definitely appreciated.  Thanks.

    A few days ago I started using a Voicelive Play and so far I like its effects and overall usability.
    Anyway I'm missing some sort of parametric EQ or low cut filter...
    In fact I'm using the Voicelive not for my voice but to apply effects to an accordion and would like to "cut" the low end up to 200Hz to filter out the keys' "thumb".
    Previously I used and old Digitech WX400 and it has a 3 band parametric EQ very basic but it did the job.
    Now I can't find anything similar in the Play... I'm looking in the wrong place?
    Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi garubi, thank you for your post, please ponder the only tool that offers EQ, Compression and Gate on the Voicelive Play is the Tone Style. That applies varying amounts of Adaptive EQ, Compression and Gate.

      There are 9 styles to choose from:

      1. OFF – No Tone Style is applied.
      2. NORMAL – Some “bottom”, “mid” and “air” EQ , light compression and minor gating (when
      the input level gets low enough, the input is muted) is applied to the signal.
      3. LESS BRIGHT – Similar to Normal, but with less emphasis on high frequency EQ.
      4. NORM+WARMTH – Similar to Normal, with a small “mid bump” to add some warmth to the
      voice.
      5. MORE COMP – Utilizes the Normal EQ and Gating settings, but with more aggressive compression settings. This is a good setting to try if you have a large dynamic range when singing
      and want to keep your levels under control.
      6. NORM NO GATE – Removes the Gate function from the normal setting. This means that even
      at very low input levels, the mic is still active or “hot”.
      7. LESS BRIGHT NG – The same as Less Bright, but with the Gate function removed.
      8. WARMTH NG – The same as NORM+WARMTH, but with the Gate function removed.
      9. MORE COMP NG – The same as MORE COMP, but with the Gate function removed

      For more information on this unit, please follow the link below:

      Hi Pedro, thank you for your help. I'll try that settings, thank you. As a suggestion (or feature request) I think that even a fixed "low cut" setting, on/off could be useful in many cases, for example to cut out the noises when the singer handles the mic etc...

    Hello,

    I managed to record the vocals from Voicelive 3 into my DAW, thanks to your advices. Thanks a lot. 

    But I still don't understand a particular function that you mentioned: "If you want to essentially use your VoiceLive 3 as a USB hardware plugin with your DAW, we recommend using the DAW INSERT input mode and the SAME AS XLR output mode, with the XLR Output Mode set to Dual Mono."

    What exactly means using Voicelive 3 as a plugin for vocals, does it mean to apply the Voicelive 3 effects, to the dry vocals that are already recorded in my DAW? Like I use any other vocal effect from Logic, for example?

    Because with all the above mentioned settings, this thing is not possible:) In fact, with all the above mentioned settings made, I can't hear any sound going out from Voicelive 3 or comming in from my DAW.
