    Hello-I've purchased a used TC Helicon, Voicelive 3 and set it to default settings right when it arrived to my home.  My question is did I just erase all of the (potential) updated firmware to the device or just the settings?  And I plugged in the VL3 into the computer and it didn't "recognize" it in any way...I have an iMac.

    Thanks for any info you may have.

      I believe it just clears out the user presets. Did you download Voicelive Support 2? If not download and i nstall it and plug your VL3 to see if it recognized it. You'll be able to learn if you'll need f/w update too in the app.

      Hey @Spaceman21489 ,


      @ChrisF 's advice to use voicesupport is good. If your device isn't recognized by voicesupport or you get a message saying "device in use", be sure to go to the "midi" tab in the setup menu and set the "source" parameter to usb.

    On the VL3X, is it possible to erase the most recent overdub on a track? Say I recorded a side stick hit on beats 2 and 4, and overdubbed 8th note hi-hats, but messed it up. How can I erase just the hi-hats? Thanks.

      Yep, on p 133 of the manaul, Undo and Redo section. Undo the last overdub by tapping the Loop switch. If you want to Undo the undone (put the overdub back), just tap the Loop switch again.

    On the VL3X, can I set the looper's quantization value to say 8th notes, quarter notes, triplets, etc? This way I can still play sloppily and the looper will record on the beat?

    I'm not talking about setting the looper to Free vs Quantize vs Smart mode.

      Hi @ChrisF , 


      Quantization is locked to the nearest beat in the tempo; you can't set it to longer or shorter subdivisions. You can see all the info on VL3x's quantization on page 137 of the reference manual.

    Hi, I have a Harmony GXT and my acoustic is hooked up thru the unit and into a Boss Singer Pro amp. I have my FX tuned completely off on the GXT and the harmonies turned off. Yet, I am getting a warbly sound in my speaker. I have also tried recording a loop with my amp and I can hear it worse. What is causing this? Also get it when I turn harmonies on for my vocal. I get it with acoustic and vocal.

      Hi @chriswilliamsme ,


      It would help us if you could capture a recording of the sound and share it here! That way we can diagnose whether it has to do with your settings or if it's a hardware issue.

      Hi @Henko ,


      I asked around here at the TC Helicon office and it seems that there might not be a global factory reset function on the original voicelive, and if there is, we don't know how to do it! 


      That said, you can reset individual presets and songs in the Voicelive's settings; you can find more information on how to do this on page 44 of the Voicelive user manual. Hope this helps!

    Hi from Germany,

    I know that many of you miss the function to start or stop the VL3X by midi messages. Many of you use a drum machine like the Beatbuddy, which sends midi start and stop.

    I found the voodoolab controlswitcher (http://www.voodoolab.com/controlswitcher.htm), which is ment to switch guitar amps without midi connections via midi control. Why shouldn't  it be possible to use this switcher for the VL3X (as the switch3)? 

    Anyone out there who tried that? It should be possible to change the switch 3, changing one switch for a mono or stereo jack and connecting that to the voodoolab switcher. Did anybody try that? Do you think it would work with the VL3X connected to the Beatbuddy?

    That would be great!

    Toni

      Hi @antonmartin ,


      The switch-3 and switch-6 use somewhat different methods than other footswitches, so that Voodoo lab switcher wouldn't be able to send messages to the VL3x. That said, you could just just take midi from the Beat Buddy and send it to the VL3x, or vice versa.

      Hello Rob,


      thanks for your reply. I've tried 2 Boss FS-5U Switches instead of Switch3 and they worked perfectly like switches 1 and 2 of TC Helicon Switch3. So they are normal switches. My idea is to run with a stereo patch cable from VL3X's  footswitch out directly to the Voodoo Lab Control Switcher, which is able to translate midi messages to normal switch messages. So the Beatbuddy can send start-/stop-commands to the Voodoo, which translates it to normal switch impulses. That way I should be able to e.g. start or stop the looper in VL3X as I would do it by pressing a switch on Switch3 which is mapped to e.g. loopA.


      What do you think about that?


      Regards


      Toni

      @antonmartin you can definitely try it; we don't have a ControlSwitcher in office to test, so I can't say whether it'll work or if there'll be any odd quirks, but by all means give it a go!

    Please give me reasons to upgrade to VoiceLive Play (or other?) from a Perform V for hosting karaoke, which by nature has singers requesting many different songs, unknown to me in advance.

      Hi @bearaby ,


      The Perform V is nice because it's very fast and easy to edit, but the Voicelive Play has far more options and you can do deeper editing with it. Voicelive Play also allows you to store 500 presets, so if there are several songs you know are common you can recreate the vocal effects from them and store them in the pedal. It really comes down to whether you want flexibility or easy fast editing. Let me know if you have any questions about these pedals, I'm here to help!

    Hi, I have a problem with the harmonisation of the keyboard and the microphone. I connect the keyboard via midi to the vlt2, the harmonizations work but as i go to select the keyboard violins key, the microphone has an immediate drop in volume. To sing I need to immediately disconnect the midi connection. Any suggestions on the settings? Thanks

      Hi @marcusmiller62 ,


      Your midi keyboard is likely changing a volume change message to the Voicelive. Which midi keyboard are you using?


      Try changing the "cc channel" in your midi setting and see if this solves the issue. Depending on your midi controller we may also be able to disable the cc message.

      Hi  TCH-Rob


      I resolved the drop volume problem by setting, as you advice me, my VLT2 in MIDI 7/12 (MIDI Channel & CC Channell on OFF ). We also compared Harmony M ( plugged in Korg ) and my VLT2 and we noticed that Harmony M harmonized more precisely ( we also did some settings on korg to make VLT2 work better ). Have you any suggestions to make it harmonize every single chord better. What parameters could I take action on? Thank you very much

      @marcusmiller62 It's tough to say without more details on how your VLT2 is set; do you think you could send the details of your harmony settings? You could list the values of the parameters or take pictures of the different parameter screens

    The Center knobs you turn to adjust settings has quit. Rendering the pedal pretty much unusable.

    i read many had same failure for to plastic potentiometer. 

    does anyone know how to get reolacment parts to I can repair this? Perhaps a pet number or electonics part to replace with?

    Owehaps someone has already had this corrected.

    it looks like a lot solidiered to board. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
