Product Description

No matter how good your voice is, no matter how much breath control you have or how bell-like your timbre, any studio engineer is going to throw some "sweeteners" on it. Compression, EQ, maybe pitch correction -- there's no denying that a well-produced studio vocal is just going to sound better than the live version. Unless, that is, you tour with a TC Helicon VoiceLive. This Vocal Floor Processor puts real-time studio processing power in your control and in a live situation. Oh, but what if you also recorded your own harmonies or doubled your own voice on the "recorded version"? VoiceLive can do that too, providing up to four additional pitches that are generated by your voice, and customizable to different key signatures and intervals. The TC Helicon VoiceLive lets you take your "studio voice" on the road.

Made For Live Performance

While the functionality of the TC-Helicon VoiceLive is deep, the unit was made for ease-of-use in a live context. Gain instant access to a wide array of presets, song sequences, or direct control over harmonies and effects via eight footswitches. Virtually any parameter is no more than two clicks away, and all the most common ones are instantly accessible with a single step. Go ahead and stomp away at your TC Helicon VoiceLive. These units were designed with robust components and a serious metal chassis to withstand the abuses of touring. Your band will go through many line-up changes before your VoiceLive ever quits on you.

Compression and EQ for Studio Vocals On Stage

All the core vocal processing effects are included in the TC-Helicon VoiceLive, and they're all studio-quality. Tailor the silky-smooth compression algorithms and flexible EQ to your unique voice. Then add special effects like echo or reverb for just a hint of "Epic." All these effects are derived from TC Helicon's studio rackmount vocal processor, VoiceWorks, so you know your live vocals are going to be truly studio-caliber.

Live Pitch Correction

Even if your voice isn't perfect, the TC-Helicon VoiceLive can make it sound like it is. Some live "pitch correction" devices end up sounding like an "effect," but the pitch correction process on the VoiceLive is based on studio pitch correction programs, so it's transparent and subtle. No one will ever have to know.

An Obedient Quartet Of Backup Singers

Even if you do manage to find four singers who can match your every phrasing and trill, who wants to deal with the egos? And who wants to pay them when you can simply plug into the TC Helicon VoiceLive and get natural, customizable, and beautifully lush vocal harmonies at your command? TC Helicon's proprietary "Hybrid Shifting" algorithm is some of the most accurate pitch sensing in the world, and by applying "humanization" parameters (i.e. organic imperfections) to the generated voices, is capable of uncannily natural vocal harmonies.

Reliable, controllable vocal harmonies, and a complete toolkit of studio vocal processing effects for live performance, are all crammed into the TC Helicon VoiceLive.

Product Description

As a performing musician you strive to assemble the right mix of gear to make your performances shine - but what about your voice? In the studio you polish your vocals to perfection using EQ, compression, pitch correction, harmonies and effects. VoiceLive brings your signature vocal sound on the road, putting your studio voice tools at your feet.

A studio vocal rack on stage
When you're in the studio you use great tools to get the best out of your vocal performance. You spend time auditioning mic preamps, reverbs, EQs, delays and effects to get a recording just right. With VoiceLive you have all your vocal tools in one dedicated box for live performance and control. You get the same quality processing you expect in a studio environment. The EQ, compression, delay and reverb algorithms boast renowned TC-Quality that professionals have come to expect. VoiceLive also contains the best harmony, correction and doubling algorithms from TC-Helicon's acclaimed rack mounted vocal processor, VoiceWorks.

In addition to the studio quality signal path, TC-Helicon developed and implemented VOSTM Limiter - an optical limiter optimized for voice. The analog architecture of the VOSTM Limiter ensures that you'll never distort the mic input while maintaining premium sound quality.

The most natural sounding harmonies
Creating realistic background vocals is easy with VoiceLive. Four unique harmony logic algorithms add harmonies with varying amounts of intelligence. The harmony parts are generated from your lead voice - or if you're looking for even more punch from your harmonies, let a second singer use VoiceLive to create a multi-voice back-up ensemble

VoiceLive uses the same revolutionary technologies to generate real-time harmonies as the TC-Helicon rack-mount harmony product, VoiceWorks. Each of the four harmony voices uses the Hybrid ShiftingTM algorithm. This superior pitch-shifting algorithm is combined with a voice-trained pitch-detection algorithm and human-modeled naturalization parameters to create natural harmonies to reinforce your live performances.

Transparent Pitch Correction
Driven by TC-Helicon's voice-trained pitch-detection algorithm, VoiceLive's automatic pitch correction is the most transparent available. With factory and custom scales, the "Correct" block can fix intonation problems in any musical style. Amount, Attack and a 200-cent window control make natural pitch correction easy to achieve.

Easy Control at your feet
TC-Helicon worked with numerous performing vocal artists during the design of VoiceLive. Using the feedback from these artists and TC-Helicon's experience in vocal processing, VoiceLive was designed for easy control in any setup.

- Eight foot-switches and multiple control modes make VoiceLive easy to use in your performance.
- Preset Mode gives you fast hands-free access to harmony parameters like key and scale type.
- Song Mode lets you select from stored songs and navigate through their steps.
- Direct Mode give direct access to stored presets - It's as easy as selecting radio stations on your car radio.
- Voices Mode lets you individually toggle each harmony voice on/off using the top four foot-switch buttons.
- A user foot-switch is assignable to TAP Tempo (for the delay effect), Harmony Hold

"Great FX stomp-box! The Voice Live Rocks!"
Sound: Best stomp-box FX for vocals to come along in a long time. Ease of Use: Took a little reading first. Quality: Pretty heavy-duty. Well made. Value: It's probably the greatest product of it's kind on the market, with no peers.It sounds great. Manufacturer Support: Still haven't heard from them. I sent a number of e-mails to their site, no repsonse. The Wow Factor: It looks cool and sounds even better! Overall: I'm always on the look for new gear. I will keep this product unless it is broken or stolen. I probably would upgrade to a VoicePro if I lost this machine or if it died.
Style of Music: MOR-Country

"This is not my first Rodeo. This tool is the best if you can't afford to pay 4 additional backup singers to be with you 24-7"
Sound: The sound is great. It is a bit difficult to program if you're a Techy. Feature: The directions are getting better to understand. I can't wait to get the harmony guitar controller. Some times in outdoor venues, it's difficult to read the panel. It seems that all read outs are like that. Ease of Use: The presets are great but takes some knowledge to change. Quality: The prduct is very heavy duty. Mine did have a flaw in operation after about a month. The Service was fantastic. I had it back within 5 days fixed and ready to go. that was several years ago and it's still working fine. Value: This product is the highest price but there is a reason for that. It also holds it's value. It's the best most natural sounding tool ever. It's not cheezy. People are always looking around to see who's singing harmony. Manufacturer Support: They are great. sometimes you have to wait a while to get to talk to a tech but they will call you back and solve your problem. The Wow Factor: It works. I don't want people looking at it. I want it to be invisable so people think that I'm really that good. Overall: I love it that tc helicon keeps improving this product and addresses issues that the users want.
