Thanks for your excitement about the VoiceLive line! We’ve got a team working hard to figure out how we can improve on the features that the VoiceLive 3 currently offers, as we are always looking to improve upon what we’ve built before! As I'm sure you understand, the process of developing new gear in the music tech industry is a long one - beyond the mechanics and engineering work that begins years before a product is released, there is also a period of time during which testing and corrections take place until the product meets our requirements - all of this happens before the product is ever announced or manufactured.
For this reason, we do not project release dates for products that are in progress. We prefer to o ff er accurate estimations, something we cannot do when a product is still in the development or testing phase.
We appreciate your curiosity around upcoming products, and are regularly checking in with our community on MTC. There is an interesting community discussion with some VL4 speculation and requests, check it out at this link: http://bit.ly/2Wir7Zl
Some of my favorite free vsts are Spitfire audio's lab series: https://www.spitfireaudio.com/labs/
They all are free and run on the same vst. The soft piano and electric pianos are beautiful, and some of the modular pianos are really cool if you want a piano sound that isn't super conventional.
Hi Mike ( @Shattered ),
It sounds like the feature you're looking for is "steps". These allow you to save multiple presets within one preset, and switch between them using the "step" footswitch. So, if you have a verse, chorus, and bridge preset, you can store them all in the same spot in your VL3x's memory. Check out page 45 of the Voicelive 3 reference manual for more on how steps work!
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions
Hi @digijam ,
There are a few ways you could approach this setup. If you don't plan to use the built in effects from the voicelive, you can simply plug your guitar into the "guitar in" and then send the "THRU" output into the bigshot aby. If you do plan to use VL3 effects, you can plug your guitar into the guitar input and use one of the guitar outputs into the aby. One advantage to this setup is that you could avoid using the noise suppressor; the VL3x actually has a built in noise gate which can be found in SETUP => GUITAR => "Gate Threshold".
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or ideas!
Unfortunately, it isn't a firmware issue, it's the hardware in the pedal's guitar jack. In order to add the feature we would need to design a new product.
Sorry for any ambiguity about whether or not Play Acoustic offers guitar phantom power! Phantom power on guitar inputs is very rare, so I'm sure whoever wrote the manual and marketing material didn't even think to mention it. That said, it's a great idea for future acoustic products, and I'll let someone from our product development team know about it.
Hi @HeyMikey ,
The Play Acoustic isn't capable of outputting phantom power through the guitar input. In order to power your pickup you'll need to use a mixer or other power-source.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions!
Hi Jeff ( @JeffreyMilkey ),
Unfortunately, the Voicelive 3 doesn't have the option to send dual mono out from the stereo guitar outputs, and using the guitar outputs removes guitar from the xlr outs. There's more information on this on page 29 of the VL3 reference manual.
If you aren't using stereo dependant guitar effects like ping pong delay or panning, the two guitar outputs should be identical. Another option is to purchase a splitter for less than $2, (https://www.amazon.ca/Monoprice-6-35mm-Inch-Splitter-Adaptor/dp/B0055Q03KG/ref=sr_1_38?keywords=1%2F4+cable+splitter+mono&qid=1563907433&s=gateway&sr=8-38), which is a very cheap and simple solution which would give you up to 4 identical guitar outputs.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
Hi @petrzajac !
The guitar THRU jack on the Voicelive 3 sends out the dry guitar signal, and cuts off any other guitar signal to other outputs. Unfortunately, there's no way to have the guitar go out the THRU output and the other outputs. You can see more on this in page 29 of our reference manual.
You can send guitar through the guitar outputs in dual mono if you need to have two identical guitar signals.
Let me know if you have any other questions! I hope this helps
Hi @AndyHladek ,
Send a message to our care team at https://music-group.force.com/support/s/askquestion?language=en_US&brand=tchelicon. They should be able to help you find the parts you're looking for.
Here's a demo of the Behringer Model D through the TC Helicon Voicelive 3... this is a great effects unit for synths as it essentially has a full pedalboard's worth of effects, all with individual on/off footswitches. It can also save presets and has a fully featured 4 track looper.
Disclaimer: I may overuse the words "large" and "wide". I need some new vocab to describe synth tone
