Using MIDI for harmonies

Hi - I have recently purchased Voicelive 3 and I would like to use it with a MIDI keyboard for generating my own harmonies. I have seen a video that explains how it is done on earlier versions of Voicelive:

Bit I can't see how to do it in Voicelive 3, and the manual doesn't seem to offer an insight.

Any advice or guidance would deb gratefully received.

Many thanks.

Hey Nigel,
Lucky for you, Craig already did a video on this Smiley Happy What you're looking for is called "Notes Mode" in the Harmony effect. Check it out here.

VL3 midi notes mode

Hi everybody,

I own a VL3.

One of the reasons for buying it was this fantastic
mode called " midi notes mode".
I thought "I will buy the best device...sure it's in there too".

But....now I can not find it on VL3, it is not even documented.

I can do mixed mode, fixed mode,
pedal/bass mode etc but no other mode is available.

Has it been suppressed on VL3?

My objective is to play my voice notes by means of the keyboard, freely.

Thank you for any advice!...

Best regards,
Michele

Re: Using MIDI for harmonies

Hi

If you scroll to the end of the List of Harmony Styles You will see styles Like 'Harmonized Notes','4Channel Notes' etc.
If you select one of these, you may need to change the Harmony Natural Play (NP) Source to MIDI.


Make sure that you have the VoiceLive 3 Midi Channel set the same as your Keyboard Midi Channel.

Please note if your not sending Midi CC/PC from your Keyboard to the VoiceLive 3, it would be best to filter these out on the VL3 so it does not re-act to some spurious CC/PC message coming from your Keyboard.

These options are in SETUP->MIDI
Editors for :- VoiceLive 3/Extreme, VoiceLive 2, VoiceLive Touch, VoiceLive Touch2, VoiceLive Play GTX, Perform VK. https://www.voiceliveeditor.com

Re: Using MIDI for harmonies

Thank you for your prompt answer, I found our all that yesterday night by myself...

I should have checked better by myself before asking...sorry!

Craig's corner video about how to filter out
The main voice (for robotic voice) was really helpful
For using those voices without mine (for some jazzy tricks)

Wonderful!...at two in the night I had to remove the plug and go to sleep!
;-D

Thank you and bye bye
