    Hi.

    Hope you can help me with this.

    I would like to know if VL3X is really equipped with several guitar amps models to choose from, or it just have only one guitar amp model that change the sound thanks to several EQ presets.

    Thanks.

      Hi Fabio,


      You are correct.What you have with the VL3X is an Amp Effect Block which allows you to select the Amp Style and then you adjust the pre and post gain settings in addition to the EQ settings for low,mid and high frequencies. I have to say theat despite having a number of vocal harmonisers from TC-Helicon I almost never use the guitar effects so I am no expert in that sense.I use all my vocal harmonisers where possible via midi control CCs from my DAW rather than for live work. Page 113 on the VL3X manual gives a good explanation of how the guitar section operates.


      I am a home user only and I do use my Play Acoustic for jamming live at home but without using my DAW as there in no midi port on the Play Acoustic.I rarely plug in my guitar for chord detection as i play a lot of fingerstyle so the chords are not easily detectable as my style of playing is rather like an arpeggio.I tend to just select a key and one voice only a third above my own and it works well.


      Regards


      Alan

    Hello
    Now I am at half a way familiar with the NaturalPlay, but in some way confsed:
    I wish to mix the MIDI Signal with the Roomsense mic, because in some parts or mesures the keyboard player don't play a clear chord or a pedal sound, so the NaturalPlay can't pick up the right harmony. In this case, RoomSense wold help, because there are also guitar and bass in the band-sound.
    But

    Is it possible to obtain a combination between the both signals?

    I tried with "RoomSense Auto-Detect ON" and the Parameter "Mix RoomSense to NaturalPlay"
    In this case, which Parameter of "Global NatPlay Source" I need?
    Auto or RoomSense?

    What will do NaturalSense? Will it mix two signals together or will it pick up only one of both, depends on the "quality" of the input signal?

    Could I do the same "mix" from two parameter with the AUX (additional better room micro) and MIDI Input?
    Thank you for explanation how the different parameter in the Setup work together.

    VL3 is a wonderful device !

      Hi @Roland1 ,


      The Auto Global Naturalplay source is probably your best bet!

      Found the solution on my own I had to turn "AutoShape" in Tone-setup to manual - then I could see the EQ-settings.

    I am using DAW - Presonus Studio One 4.6. I have both Windows and Macbook AIR setup. 

    On MacBook when I open Preferences > Audio Setup, I can select VoiceLIVE Rack to record the Voice. 

    VoiceLive Rack is connected to the MacBook via, USB connector.  A Condensor Microphone is connected to VL Rack. The I/O is : Phantom ON (that part I am familar with). 

    However on Windows 10 64 BIT OS - as it runs ASIO4ALL drivers.  I cannot seem to record voice as seamlessly.  Is there drivers I can download to make this happen ?

     

    Thanks

    Subha

    Hi
    Can we find the older posts from the old TC Helicon Forum?
    Or had they deleted all the old knowledge?
    Thank you

      Because they bought the wrong forum software almost a year ago now,and won't admit their mistake.That means that they can't migrate the old posts to the new and "improved" forum. (You had one job forum software,ONE JOB!!)



      So while
      technically the posts exist, no-one knows they're there...



      So, while they continue to iron out problems and try to make non-forum software behave like forum software for another 2 or 3 years...


      Sorry, got bored ranting.. Meet my new years positive outlook!!

    Hi everybody

    ON the older forum for TC Helicon VL3 i wrote under avator "rolandus".
    Now it's my first time on mus!ctribe community.

    Is there any possibility to simulate the effect of the Oberheim Rototor module, to get ramdom harmonies?
    In the 80's it was a common effect (Fusion Jazz oder Pop).
    The effect is described very well here: https://robbykilgore.com/?p=19&fbclid=IwAR1uevphz8LIvIFDVIt6Z_YClfOQidT1ufOLE0Pt8BgV7zomHCR9bJg9vls

    Is there a module from TC to get this?
    Thank you

    Roland

    I never know if the harmony will be good or bad.

    Often I play a C chord on the guitar and sing a note in the C chord and the harmony voices, which are set to "sing" a 3rd and a 5th, instead sing one or more dissonant notes; often a 2nd.  I can find no way to set this to sing just simple harmony where I can rely on it.  I've tried all the settings that seem to relate to it.  It does it with the presets I've made and with those that come with it.

    Here's a DropBox link to what I'm talking about (in Bb, but it happens in all keys).  When it sounds good it's great, but I can't find a way to rely on good harmony.  Suggestions would be much appreciated.

      Spence?  Nothing?  Crickets?


      No one else having this problem or no one has solved it?


      Am I missing the little known "Harmonize On Pitch" button?
      Is my unit failing or do I just need to get over it?

      Hi.


      Did you check if Harmony follows your guitar? Maybe RoomSense microphones are active. Check page 97 on PDF manual.


      Best

      Thanks for taking the time to respond.  I've done RoomSense both ways. 


      Also putting individual voices on NatPlay or Scale don't seem to fix it. 


      Am I the only one having trouble with randomly misbehaving harmonies?


      Has TC-Helicon (or Behringer) really washed their hands of us?  I just spent $800 on the VL3X a couple of months ago.

      Hi @jkrantman ,


      What are your settings in the harmony tab of the Vocal fx? If you send a picture of all the settings that would make troubleshooting your issue a lot easier.

      Rob, good to see your reply.  I will gather the settings, but it seems to happen on a lot of different presets.  I will confirm that I am right about that and will get back with you with the settings.
