    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!!

      • Midi Harmonize on VL3 Extreme
        Rocco65 Using the usb/midi cable:

        Global Key/scale ON
        Global Nat Play source: MIDI
        Midi input channel: 1
        Midi input filter: NONE
        Split note: C-1
        Split direction: Above

        Using the usb cable the same but:

        Global Nat Play source: usb/track

      • 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?

      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?

      • Nov 15
    • 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 ?

    • kenhaynes
      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.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Mikki902, thank you for your post, unfortunately you will not be able to connect the TCH C1 directly to your sound card, you will require something like a mixing to be able to manage the output signal from the C1, before inputting on your sound card. Thank you

      • About TC Helicon C1 and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2? connection
        Mikki902 Thanks for your answer. I see, then I will get Yamaha AG03 as a mixer and audiointerface? It should work oder??

    Hi - please can someone tell me how I get both a dry and wet signal from the Voicelive 2 to my mixer? I've tried connecting the xlr output that says dry to the mixer but the audio from that output still has the Voicelive 2 'effect' on it? I'd like to record the wet and dry simultaneously so I can play with the mix in the edit. Thank you.

      NicJonesMT Hi Annapurna456.
      Can you check in the setup menu that you have the output mode set to MONO.
      This will then put a summed mono mix onto the left output, and the dry signal (Including the Tone settings) to the right output.
      • Nov 10
    • Annapurna456
      Annapurna456 Will do - thank you.
      • Nov 10
    • Annapurna456
      kiskadar69 ..and if you want to remove the dry signal from the summed mono mix, set Setup -> I / O tab -> Lead Mute to On.
