Perform Onstage with Studio-Quality Vocal FX and Smart Harmonies!

Transform your voice in ways you've never dreamed of with the TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play -- this vocal effects and harmony pedal puts studio-quality effects, pitch correction tools, a performance looper, and much more at your feet, enabling you to get creative with your voice and sing through cool effects, on top of backing harmonies, or along with your favorite MP3s. Plug in a microphone to the VoiceLive Play and have some fun! Your voice is an instrument after all, so exercise it -- and your right to awesome FX.

Quick Start with Presets, or Create Your Own

TC-Helicon's VoiceLive Play offers a playground of effects to choose from: Adaptive Tone (includes EQ, Compression, De-ess, and Gate), Pitch Correction, HardTune, Harmony, Double, Reverb, Delay, Flange, Chorus, Detune, Rotary, Distortion, Radio, Megaphone, Robot, Loop, and more.

You can get started the quick way by using the Genre button to browse through over 200 different style presets, or you can create your own by using the processor's onboard controls and saving your presets as favorites. If ever you feel short on styles and you need some fresh, inspiring effects, you can download free artist-created presets via VoiceSupport (provided by TC-Helicon) so your VoiceLive Play is always exciting and up to date.

Make Your Vocal Lines Sound Bigger

The equivalent of adding more cowbell, the Hit effect helps intensify your vocals by layering additional effects on top of whatever you're tracking. Press the Hit button to add anything from harmony and reverb to a megaphone-style effect to your vocals, for example, to create huge-sounding choruses, memorable bridges, animated backups, and more.

Enhance your vocal performance even further with the VoiceLive Play's built-in VLOOP looper. Turn effects on and off during a set, and enjoy seamless transitions and intriguing layers of sound.

Active Listening Partner

While the VoiceLive Play's effects are enough to improve the sound quality of your vocals, its pitch correction and harmonizing features are what will make your tracks really sing. The VoiceLive Play helps make your vocals more musical, correcting pitches and adding harmonies that match the style of your performance. The effects pedal intelligently "listens" to your music using Auto Key technology, which senses and adapts to the key you're singing or playing in, using the processor's AUX input or the built-in RoomSense microphones. Not only does the pedal listen to your voice, it listens to nearby instruments as well. The embedded stereo RoomSense mics help the VoiceLive Play provide accurate, in-tune harmonies that match the instruments playing around you. You don't need to have extensive knowledge of music theory or voice leading to get great vocal harmonies; just turn on the VoiceLive Play.

It's Only Automatic

Thanks to TC-Helicon's adaptive tone technology, the VoiceLive Play is able to control Shape EQ and Dynamics (Compression and De-ess), and in turn, balance your tone and dynamics to suit any mix. It can also add an adaptive gate to help suppress feedback and reduce bleed. The VoiceLive Play adapts to your music automatically so you don't even need to think about it.

Practice Tools That You Will Actually Use

One of the best ways to improve your performance skills is by singing along to your favorite songs. The VoiceLive Play enables you to do just that with its Vocal Cancel feature. Plug your MP3 player into the pedal's AUX input, select Vocal Cancel, and your voice will stand out over the vocals on the original song.

Its dedicated Practice mode helps analyze your performance in real-time and identify strengths and weaknesses in your singing. You can take the VoiceLive Play's constructive criticism into consideration, or you can listen for yourself and be the one to judge your pitch and intonation. So that you can scrutinize your singing after the fact, the VoiceLive Play lets you record and play back audio using the USB connection to your computer.

Product Description

Whether you're at the top of the charts - or just a dreamer with a microphone, the TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play gives you hundreds of song & artist presets to choose from, helping you create amazing vocals. Plug in your MP3 player and sing along with your favorite tracks or create instant HIT effects for your own songs.

Sound Like The Pros

Producers spend more time on perfecting vocals than any other instrument, and the number of layered vocal tracks on a studio recording often run well into the double-digits. Now the same care for creating vocals live or at home is available to everyone. VoiceLive Play gives singers the opportunity to experience the sound they know and love from their favorite songs with ease. Featuring automatic backing harmonies, vocal double tracking, pristine EQ and compression, lush reverbs, hard-tuned robo-voice - all the goose-bumps-on-your-arm effects that make today's Billboard hit vocals "pop".

Pick a Genre, any Genre

Operating and navigating VoiceLive Play is a breeze. The GENRE button allows you to easily browse hundreds of presets. Choose a style that suits you and VoiceLive Play will list the presets that fit your preference. If you've never used effects before, you'll quickly learn how to find the sound you're looking for with GENRES.

Download More & Make Your Favorites

If hundreds of presets weren't enough, you'll be able to download exciting artist presets each month for free via VoiceSupport.

Should you want to create your own presets, VoiceLive Play offers the simple and intuitive onboard controls to do so. In addition, you can mark any preset as a FAVORITE, creating a personal genre of choice effects for super-fast access.

Make It a Hit

HIT is a performance-inspired feature for building intensity into any vocal performance. Every preset has an effect that you can build upon by pressing the HIT button, which adds additional effects on top. For example, you could start with a simple reverb and then "HIT it" to add dazzling harmonies or a raw megaphone effect for emphasis - excellent for making choruses stand out instantly!

Perfect Harmonies & Correction

VoiceLive Play listens to your music. Using Auto Key technology it senses and adapts to your MP3 recordings using the aux input or the built in RoomSense microphones so that harmonies and pitch correction fit perfectly with your music.

No Music Degree required!

Singing along is a great way of practicing and performing. Plug in your MP3 player via the AUX In connector and use the Vocal Cancel feature to make your voice stand out over the vocals on the original track. You can also record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer.

Practice Makes Perfect

All singers need practice, but that doesn't mean that it can't be a lot of fun. VoiceLive Play has a dedicated PRACTICE mode that analyzes your performance in real-time, helping you spot your strengths as well as focus on the areas that might need attention.

Loop Around

The VLOOP(TM) performance looper allows you to create a complete performance while turning effects on and off.

A Good Set of Ears

Embedded stereo RoomSense mics can control your harmonies from instruments nearby, replace the cabled mic for headphone practice or add ambience to your headphone mix.

Adaptive Tone

TC-Helicon's adaptive tone technology intelligently controls Shape EQ and Dynamics (Compression & De-ess) to provide the perfect tonal balance and add smooth dynamic control to fit in any mix. Best of all it's easy - just set and forget. An adaptive gate can also be added to help suppress feedback and reduce bleed.
