      WilliamR 1. Download and install VoiceSupport2 software from here.



      https://www.tc-helicon.com/Categories/Tchelicon/Vocal/Apps/VOICESUPPORT-2/p/P0CMP/Downloads#googtrans(en|en)



      2. Connect the device to PC / Mac with USB and turn on the power.



      3. Start VoiceSupport2.



      4.VoiceSupport2 recognizes the device, and if there is the latest update, an update mark will be added to the device image.



      5. Select Update in the upper tab, click the latest firmware and try the update.

      Nigel67 Hi banjo123. This does sound like a internal hardware fault, in which case you will need to go to the support tab at the top of the page and submit a support ticket. However, can you see if your unit will go into maintenance mode to start with. If not, then it is the ticket I am afraid. can I confirm that nothing lights up at all on the screen? When you say that you have tested the power supply, can you confirm that there are 12 volts on the power connector that plugs into the voicelive?
      Turn off your VL3X.
      ► Unplug headphones (if attached)
      ► Using a toothpick or a small wire (we recommend a straightened paper clip), press the
      button that is inside the Headphone jack. The
      button is small and at the very end of the inside of the jack. You don’t need to use much
      force – so please be gentle. You will feel a
      small click when the button presses.
      ► With the button held down, press the power
      switch on your VL3X.
      ► Wait until you see the System Maintenance
      Screen. You should see the System Maintenance
      screen immediately.

      DavidStewart There are a few presets that use the Talkbox effect or other computer voice effects. They do not give any sound unless you're playing.

    Hi, 

    I have a Playacoustic and my guitar and mic plug into that.  I would like to get a harmoniser for another singer and was thinking of a Harmony Singer 2.  However, the other singer doesn't play guitar and I have heard that the Singer 2 needs a guitar input so that it can track chords for harmonies etc.  Any recommendations for how to split the guitar signal so that it can go into the Playacoustic and the Singer 2 - or for a harmoniser that doesn't need a guitar input?  Thanks!

      kiskadar69 Method 1: Guitar to Harmony Singer 2 "INST IN", Harmony Singer 2 "INST THRU" to Play Acoustic "GUITAR IN".
      Method 2: maybe a DI box could be used. Guitar into DI box input with a jack to jack lead, the jack link output on the DI box into the Play Acoustic "GUITAR IN" with another jack to jack lead, and then the DI XLR out into the Harmony Singer 2 "INST IN" with an XLR to jack lead.

        Jezzerbee Thanks! Method 1 looks a bit more straightforward - my kind of level!

      harrisrljc Similar question, different equipment. I'm the bass player and I'm looking at getting a Harmony Singer 2. Guitar player has a Harmony Singer 1. I need to go to the HS2 first, then out to his HS1, then to the guitar amplifier?

    Hi guys,

    I bought a Voicelive Touch 2 and a Switch 6 (both second hand) and I've been using the Switch in Custom Mode (with the first six effects assigned to each footswitch). But sometimes the commands from the Switch 6 will go nuts and turn the wrong effects (diferent then the assigned ones). When this happens, I reinsert the TRS on both ends until it gets back to the proper assigned functions.

    Can this be a bad TRS cable thing? Or could it be because I have a malfunction Switch 6 unit? How should I get it fixed? I can't have this happening in the middle of a concert... Does anyone have any guess on where the problem lies?

    Thanks in advance

      kiskadar69 It should be determined which device is faulty. For example, you could measure the Switch-6 with an ohmmeter:
      0. If none of the switches on the Switch-6 are depressed, you will normally measure an open between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      1. If only the first switch on the Switch-6 is depressed, you will normally measure 10 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      2. If only the second switch on the Switch-6 is pressed, you will normally measure 20 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      3. If only the third switch on the Switch-6 is depressed, you will normally measure 30 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      4. If only the fourth switch on the Switch-6 is depressed, you will normally measure 40 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      5. If only the fifth switch on the Switch-6 is pressed, you will normally measure 50 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      6. If only the sixth switch of the Switch-6 is pressed, you will normally measure 60 kohm between the Tip and Ring output of the Switch-6.
      7. Normally you always measure 70 kohm between the Switch-6 Ring and Sleeve output.

    Hello everyone,

    Just joined the Music Tribe Community in order to be able to check around the TC Helicon family some things I'm willing to achieve with my recently acquired Voicelive Touch 2 + Switch 6 combo.

    The more pressing question is the one I put as the subject for this inquiry. I'm a singer-songwriter and I REALLY want to be able to control the Slider FX effects with a dedicated Expression Pedal - so I don't have to use my hands for triggering them momentarily and/or controlling its intensity.

    Since I'm already using the Switch 6 in the footswitch port - and unfortunately it seems that you don't have the option to assign this for one of the footswitches - it seems to me that the only way to achieve this would be using an Expression Pedal connected thru MIDI. Can someone confirm if that's possible? I checked the manual (and this forum), but couldn't find the answer. If it's possible, then would any Expression pedal work or is there some brands/models that are more advisable for getting this to work?

    I'm hoping to get myself an Helix Floor (or LT) in the near future, and I could try using the Wah/Expr. pedal for that purpose (has anyone already done that?), but maybe it's best if I get a dedicated one just for the VLT2 - so I could have the Helix for controlling guitar effects whenever I need.

    I was thinking of getting this EX3 model, made by this Poland brand called Beat Bars, which outputs MIDI both thru USB or a MIDI port. Here's the link for it: https://beatbars.com/en/midi-expression-pedal.html Does anyone know if that would work as I intend it to? 

    Another doubt concerning the Slider FX: is it possible to increase the decay time of the effects (when triggered) so they don't disappear right away from pressing the slider FX region? That would be handy in the case that I can't control this via Expression Pedal. But I'd much rather having the expression pedal possibility though... That would grant me more control and expressivity.

    I'll  greatly appreciate any feedback on this matter. Thanks in advance!

      yuriamorim I've looked into the MIDI Implementation on the manual and there seems to be no MIDI CC number attributed to the Slider FX. That makes me think that maybe it's not possible to do what I want. If that's the case, would it be possible to include such a thing in a future firmware update? Does TC Helicon still keep "updating" this line of products (VLT2) - when was the last firmware update released anyway? - or would they do so if asked by the users community (in case it's theoretically possible)? I'm "late" to the game, but that feature would really make this piece of gear really shine (not that it doesn't already). There's still potential locked in this baby.

    Hi,

    which affordable expression pedals work best with the VoiveLive 2?

    That means, that there are no "dead" areas from toe to heel position.

    I learned, that most pedals with a 25 K linear pot in TRS-configuration work fine as an expression

    pedal, but I do not know the correct brands ( the pedal should be durable).

    Thanks in advance, regards,

    Florian Schneider

    When I go to update my software I get a message saying "Device In USE" some Applications such as Google Chrome open MIDI devices. Everything I own has Google Chrome, so how do I update my software on my voicelive2? I close everything but the update and I still get the message and can't update. Can I get some help?

    Hi guys . Anyone knows how to set the backing tracks isolated output on VoiceLive 3 X? Found a scheme where says that the gtr outputs are to be used but that ones not working.

    • kingofthenight
      PedroRodrigues Hi kingofthenight on the output Tab on the backing track setting you will be able to route the backing tracks to the guitar outs.
      If both outputs are connected, the signal is in stereo. If one is connected, the signal is summed to mono.
      This mode allows you to have a two-component Backing Track where “the click” is sent to one ¼” output and “the track” to the other.
      These signals can then be independently routed wherever you wish.
      Usually, you will have “the track” go to FOH and “the click” to a monitor mix .
      If you’re listening to Backing Tracks over your headphones, you’ll hear the split tracks as described here, with “the click” on one side and “the track” in the other.
      I hope this helps
