    I have MP75 and Voicelive play. Just updated firmware. I have selected the MP75 AS INPUT SOURCE AND WENT FURTHER INTO MENUS TO HAVE THE mic button simply control presets up. It will not work. The videos explaining this are 9 years old. Can anyone give me instructions to help me accomplish this? Thanks!

      kiskadar69 "I have a new MP-75 and the button works only sometimes. Like right now, I picked it up and I had to press the button 5 times to get it to HIT. It is random - it takes between one and five presses to get HIT to go on or off. Each press is firm and uniform. I have the INPUT set to MP-75 mic, and MP-75 control set to "HIT + TALK". What else could it be? Is something defective here?" (Barclay Brown,2017.05.11.)
      "OK solved this, but in case anyone else experiences it: restart the VoiceLive Play AFTER you connect the microphone. If the mic is connected/disconnected while the VLP is on, you may see this problem."(Barclay Brown,2017.05.21.)

      kiskadar69 Is the VoiceLive Play and MP-75 connected with a standard 3-wire microphone cable? The TC-Helicon "Mic Control" function does not work via a 2-wire cable or wireless system either.
      If it doesn't work, then ..
      1. try another microphone cable. If that doesn't help, then ..
      2. try another microphone (Sennheiser e 835 fx, TC-Helicon MP-75 / MP-76 / MP-85) or a TC-Helicon MCA100. If that doesn't help, then ..
      3. try another TC-Helicon effects processor.

    What is the difference between the harmonies in the fully counter-clockwise setting (which appears to show one harmony above and one below) and the next setting clock-wise? They both show a harmony above and below but the fully counterclockwise position shows the lines above the circle to be a little further away from the circle than the setting above it. What is this different (yet similar) symbolism representing?

      PedroRodrigues Hi Warlaumont8654, I will gladly provide you with the information you require but I will need to understand first the unit that you are referring to on your question? Thank you

    • Warlaumont8654
      kiskadar69 The distance of the line from the circle determines how far the pitch of the generated harmony is from the pitch of the sound sung into the microphone.

    Hi everyone, I just bought TC extreme 3 today, and trying to setup step by step, i use this processor for my flute sound instead of singing.. one important effect i try to get is a one octave high. well flute have a 4 octave range, for the 2 lower range of flute, the processor is doing well, but next to octave 3 and more the sounds is a bit weird, the sounds effect is not getting more high but suddently drop to the lowest pitch.. any one can help me with this problem? maybe explaination why, or TC just have a very limited frequency respons from the input pitch? thank you..

      PedroRodrigues Hi Fluteranger, thank you for your post, Effectively the VL3X was primarily designed to be used for Vocals and Guitar but that does not means that it could not be used on other profiles. On your description I could not understand if what you are describing happen when you use the unit with a Mic set up or using Natural Play? Thank you

    Will 600mA @ 9V power the Harmony singer? I know that the PSU weighs in at 670mA but there is usually a bit of headroom allowance with a PSU.

      PedroRodrigues Hi davymaguire, thank you for your post, the Power Supply used with Harmony Singer must offer 9 V / 670 mA otherwise you may damage your unit. Thank you

    My band uses BandHelper (BH) to manage songs and set lists. When we perform I advance the set list to the next song and BH sends midi to different instruments. I would like to do is use a new product midi uhost https://www.cme-pro.com/widi-uhost/ to send commands to the VoiceLive Play from BH.

    I know other VoiceLive products have MIDI and the Play does not. But, when using the VoiceSupport2 app it is sending MIDI commands via the USB cable. This is what I want to do with the WIDI Uhost.

    Thanks

      PedroRodrigues Hi OneDrinkPony,thank you for your post, unfortunately that will not be possible as the USB port on the unit is exclusively to exchange data between the unit and VoiceSupport 2 so it will not accept other software sending messages to that USB port. Thank you

    Hello, here is my question (sorry if it was already discussed but i haven't found it yet).

    If i'm not wrong i can send a midi track from computer to VL3 so that when i sing or play saxophone i get my melody harmonized following the midi changes. Well, so i connect the macbook to VL3 (tested both with a midi/usb cable and with the usb cable supplied with VL3), set ableton live to send midi signal to VL3 and VL3 to receive from midi or usb, depending on the used cable. Then i record some chords in ableton live (at a slow rate, let's say one chord over 2 or 4 bars) and play them. At this point i assume that all settings are ok because i see a "MIDI" writing flashing on bottom of VL3 monitor but... any note i sing or play in the microphone is harmonized in C major or sometimes in G...

    Which can be my mistake in this? Thank you for any help!!

      kiskadar69 1. Check SETUP / SYSTEM tab / GLOBAL KEY SCALE
      2. Check SETUP / SYSTEM tab / GLOBAL NATPLAY SOURCE
      3. Check SETUP / MIDI tab / INPUT CHANNEL
      4. Check SETUP / MIDI tab / INPUT FILTER
      5. Check SETUP / MIDI tab / SPLIT NOTE
      6. Check SETUP / MIDI tab / SPLIT DIRECTION

      • Midi Harmonize on VL3 Extreme
        Rocco65 The only way i've found up to now is telling Ableton Live to use VL3 as audio output... but it isn't what i need

      Rocco65 So the problem was at the source :-). I've found how to set up Ableton live now. I hope this will help other users in the future. Thanks for driving me to te solution kiskadar

    My TC Helicon harmonizer is turning on and off by itself without me pressing on the activate button, can anyone tell why this is happening, please?

    • Brodadtc
      kiskadar69 What is the type of harmonizer? What is the type of microphone?
      If you do not use a device with a Mic Control switch (such as the Sennheiser e 835 fx, TC-Helicon MCA100 / MP-75 / MP-76 / MP-85), you must disable the Mic Control function on the harmonizer. If you have it set to "MP-75/76" or "e835FX" instead of just "Dynamic" or "Condenser" in the mic type, it can trigger Mic Control erroneously as the levels go up and down.

      I actually did have it set on the e835fx. I am actually using a wireless mic. It actually sounds great just the on-off issues. So thanks I will definitely change the settings and see if that helps, thanks for your quick response.

      Should I go with a condenser or dynamic for a wireless mic?

      • November 15, 2021
    • Brodadtc
      kiskadar69 I don't know about wireless systems, but I think if the wireless device connected directly to the TC-Helicon harmonizer has its own power supply, Dynamic should be set.
      Note: I forgot to mention that the "Mic Control" function of the Sennheiser e 835 fx, TC-Helicon MCA100 / MP-75 / MP-76 / MP-85 is not compatible with wireless systems. For "Mic Control" to work, the aforementioned devices and the TC-Helicon effect processor must be connected with a 3-wire microphone cable.

    Hey all,

    I'm singing 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins. I have a lot of affects on the section of the song where Billy Corrigan sings, "today yeah." The volume, when I press the hit for that voice change, goes up considerably. To get the right sound I need to have the levels up on the effects to really get the underwater voice. I can't figure out how to get the On Contol voice, which is most of the song, and the hit effects voice leveled. Any way to control the two volume of these sources separately?

      NicJonesMT Hi AMckee27.
      You would need to press the "MIX" button and adjust the levels in this menu. You should then be able to build a balanced mix of all of your levels on the output.

      Thanks Nick- but does that affect the global mix? Or does it just affect the mix at the effect level? I just want to mix the Hit state as compared to the On state for this one effect. The Mix button seems to be a global setting with the options: headphone, loop Roomsense, main out, harmony and delay/reverb.

    Can I play an acoustic pianio along with the v100 and it track the harmonies/keys ?    

    In other words if I play guitar and piano and don't want to plug in a guitar will the Amp sense the key I am in so it can track the harmonies correctly ?

    Hope that makes sense ....

      kenhaynes In other words is the input mic to sense the harmonies on the actual amp or do I have plug in something to the guitar amp input for it to sense the harmony keys ?

      NicJonesMT Hi KenHaynes.
      You need to have a guitar connected to the Guitar input.
      The Harmony setting will then listen to this to generate the harmonies.

    Hello

     

    Can please somebody tell  for what this setting is used and how because it is not explained in the manual
    ""MIDI PC Messages The product’s 3 presets correspond to Program Change Bank 0: 125, 126, 127""
    and because I pretty much embed my parameters in my midi files. I even made my own Performer.ins for cakewalk or other midi files program. but unfortunately this performer Vk  in event list can not select the type of reverb (Hall Room club) only the deep and decay . like echo you can choose the deep the feedback on and off but not the speed . I always have to get my tap
    with harmony you can set all parameters which is a very good plus point.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Newme41, thank you for your post,considering your question the
      “MIDI PC Messages The product’s 3 presets correspond to Program Change Bank 0: 125, 126, 127"
      This is related to the MIDI implementation for your unit to allow the Perform VK to be controlled by an external MIDI controller,part of the MIDI mapping process to allow the preset to be controlled externally via MIDI
      This is available on the manual on page 12 under “MIDI Implementation” and follows to page 13 and 14.


      I will leave you the link below, so you can access the full manual.
