OVERVIEW

A completely redesigned user interface, a smoother algorithm, new reverb, and more for better vocals.

The VoiceLive 2 floor-based vocal processor from TC Helicon makes it easier to lead your own vocal backup group while sounding rich and authentically human at the same time. It starts with a guitar, MIDI keyboard, or aux-input controlled vocal harmony algorithm with four intervals, each of which can be unison-doubled, or 8 discrete voices controlled by your MIDI keyboard playing. And when you want to tap into your gospel soul, VoiceLive 2 effects pedal gives singers a Choir algorithm that creates the massive multi-voice group vocal sound to bring home those classic choruses.

Vocal effects pedal with more automatic features
When you're worrying about parameter settings, you spend less time focusing on your music. So when TC Helicon set out to build VoiceLive 2, they automated several of its features.

•Auto Mic-Gain Set the mic gain from a standing position just by singing. Once this is done there are no knobs to be jostled in transit and you can still do manual tweaks if you feel you'd like to.
•Auto Gate-Feedback a problem? An all-new Auto Gate listens to you and adjusts to reduce feedback and effects leak-through while you're not singing.
•Adaptive Tone-A single push of the Tone button engages studio-quality Shape EQ, compression, and de-essing that adapts to the tonal range of your singing style and voice for increased impact and smoothed dynamics. Finally, your live singing can have that studio polish.
•Reverb and Delay-ducking Increase the sustaining tail of your reverb and delay effects while carving out plenty of room for your lyrics with ducking. The level of the effects is reduced while you sing and then subtly increases after your last syllable for a paradoxical deeper ambience with enhanced intelligibility. Of course, this is all automatic-just select a ducking reverb or delay style, and VoiceLive 2 does the rest.

A vocal effects powerhouse
All the processing power in VoiceLive 2 is available simultaneously to take your voice, your performances, and your music over the top. In addition to vocal harmony, you can construct or select preset effect chains containing effects to:

•Distort your voice-Grunge is good. Make a statement with the Transducer block that also has 4 pole filters for great megaphone and telephone effects.
•Clone your voice-Employ up to 4 voices of humanized unison overdubs in addition to the harmony voices. This sound has been used since recording began to fatten vocals. Now it's your turn.
•Expand your space-A completely new reverb algorithm envelops your voice in dense ambiances from teeny live rooms to concert halls and bright plate simulations. Don't forget the delay block can serve to add depth or become a highlight effect whether it's using tap tempo or tape delay styles.
•Mod ya later-The full μMod block brings lush chorus, slick microtuning, swooshing flange, and more to the party. Those half-time bridge sections never sounded more psychedelic.

Random access
Having a large chain of effects won't do as much good if you can't add and remove links in the chain when the mood strikes. The individual stompbox footswitches for Harmony, Doubling, μMod, Reverb, Delay, and FX give you the flexibility to layer or simplify at will. Also, there's a Shortcut footswitch that can be assigned to add other interesting features such as tap tempo, harmony hold, and others. There is no separation between Song mode and Preset mode as there was in the original VoiceLive; each preset can have up to 50 steps each of which can contain a different preset or a simple modification of the main preset. Go ahead, get dirty, and start creating now.

Performing Vocals with Perfection! Listen to the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 with MP-75 microphone!

Upon switching from a regular mic through the PA to my TC Helicon MP-75 mic enhanced with the VoiceLive 2, the first words from my sound techs' mouth were, "Wow, listen to how clear that is."
The audience sat up and took notice that my setup made the same crummy-sounding PA system sound much, much better...and that was with no tweaking done to the sound board on the PA itself...nor had any tweaking been done on the VL-2 except for having the TONE, and PITCH buttons on, and set to automatic! Woohooo!
Many of the upper grade PA systems like, Mackie, Soundcraft, PreSonus, and Yamaha, have pretty decent effects built into themselves. However, after hearing the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2's smooth, studio-like compression, de-essing, world-class reverb, and delays, every sound man and musician who was there the day I auditioned my TC Helicon VL-2 and MP-75 were just blown into the 21st century of state-of-the-art sound technology. Besides being blessed with a great voice, using the VoiceLive2 along with it's companion MP-75 microphone have given me an advantage over other singers that I never thought I'd ever have. The TC Helicon VL-2 and MP-75 has renewed in me an old self confidence I thought I'd lost a long time ago. I used to enjoy and depend upon that inner-confidence while singing. With my new equipment from TC Helicon, and lots of practice using it, my old self-confidence has begun showing up at my performances and even rehearsals, once again. My audiences are noticing my renewed self-confidence too, and I get more applause than ever. If you can afford a VoiceLive 2, and an MP-75 along with some quality cables, I urge you to go out and invest in yourself, and your equipment. It really can make the difference between sounding like a week end amateur, or a complete professional!
VoiceLive 2 gives us professional quality vocal effects in one attractive, durable floor unit. It has 10 foot push buttons on the unit itself (many with more than one function), 6 of those buttons are dedicated to simply turning particular effect blocks on or off (or setting tap tempo). There are foot switches for Harmony, Doubling, microModulation, Reverb, Delay, and FX. VL2 has a shortcut button that is assignable. One thing you can assign to it is the single button looper that can be used to loop voice or guitar, or both. Up to 15 seconds of stereo looping, or 30 of mono looping. A single button control for play, overdub, stop, undo, and erase. If you're using a TC Helicon MP-75, the control button on that mic can be used to trigger and control the looper feature, instead of the temporary button on the VL2! In fact, the control button on the TC Helicon MP-75 can control just about any of the effects found in the VL2. So cool, you have to try it!
The VL2 works very hard for any singer/ musician looking to improve their vocal reproduction and sound quality during any live gig or even studio recording session. It's designed specifically for performers to use during live performances, and gives the performing artists themselves more say and control in the final outcome of their voice in the mix. VL2 is packed with today's state-of-the-art vocal effects, and even a few more that you may have never heard of yet. The VL2 has it's own very accurate and easy to see guitar tuner, along with a dedicated guitar effects block section including all your favorite effects. Compression, a multi-band EQ, a modulation section (including chorus, detune and flange), and several high quality reverb to round out the guitar effects section. Phase reversal is also included in the guitar section for possibly reducing feedback. The separate guitar effects block seems to be geared more for acoustic-electric guitars as it has no distortion section, but I've made nice use of these effects with my electric double hum-bucker guitar.The guitar effects are global, and switching to new are not changed when changing presets for vocal songs.

The vocal section of the VL2 is crammed with vocal possiblities, and it's chock full with completely professional, adjustable, and programmable vocal effects. Automatic microphone volume adjustment. Phantom power Professional high quaility reverbs with ducking capability, tap-tempo capabable in the echoes and delays section also with ducking capabilities, micro-modulations such a detune, flangers, choruses are offered in the umod section. It features hardtune abilities, also. It's harmony section is extensive and inlcudes a "HOLD" feature that is foot-triggerable. One to four harmonies are available in any gender (eight with keyboard or MIDI, also gender adjustable), along with a separate and totally fantastic doubler effect that has many editable parameters (including 1 to 4 doubles, gender adjust for each double). It also features rhythmic and tone sections, Not only that, it has a USB port for future upgrades, or uploading or downloading other users' presets.Downloading presets to computers for future reference and recall has many benefits.
The VoiceLive2 has MIDI IN, OUT, and THRU for complete flexibility with computers, keyboards, and other MIDI-oriented equipment. Harmonies within the VL2 can be controlled by a connected GUITAR, MIDI IN, and AUXILIARY IN (such as mp3 or CD's). However, harmony can be derived strictly by using KEY &amp; SCALE mode. In KEY &amp; SCALE mode, the VL2 will ignore the AUTO INPUT SENSE and harmonies will be rendered . I AUTO INPUT SENSE the unit decided which of the guitar in MIDI IN, and AUX IN you are currently playing through so it derives it's harmonies from one of those. Inputs and outputs are very complete, and the unit produces stereo effects.


Starting with the upper left finger control buttons on top of the VL2...These are what TC Helicon refers to as their "live engineer". It's important to note that these TONE PITCH and GUITAR FX controls are global, that means they have an affect on all the sounds within the VL2, and affect the sounds in all the numbered presets! Although these controls can be used automatically (as designed), they can also be used in manual mode to override the automated engineering aspects of the VL2. In manual mode, there are several more options given for adjusting the equalizer settings, so some people (lik
e sound engineers), may find that useful, however for most of us ordinary users/singers, I urge you to let the automation we pay for in this item to do it's job...it's generally better than we are. After using the VL2 at several personal venues, I've yet to turn the automated features found in it to manual operation. It simply seems to work best in it's automated mode, making it a lot less likely for the sound to get messed up.
"TONE" button controls, Adaptive Shape EQ, Adaptive Compresssion, De-Ess, &amp; Adaptive Gate.I have never found a reason to turn off the "Tone" button, or even take it out of automated mode. It's simply wonderful technology that works hard, and well for me.
The compressor is wonderful, and makes my singing sound more musical. The compressor is adjustable if needed. I've yet to find a De-Esser that works better in an all-in-one unit such as this one. The "Pitch" button located directly to the right of the "Tone" button. Pressing the PITCH button activates auto chromatic pitch correction. It's automatic setting is at 50%, and is usually all that is required. There is no need to set Key or Scale, all notes that you sing in the 12 tone western chromatic scale are corrected to the nearest scale tone. **I've never heard it working when I sing, unless I increase the value above it's normal 50%.
I only gave features an 9 because something this expensive and important in a singer/musician equipment package should come standard with a protective storage case. Already, some VL2 users have come up with their own homemade padded and reinforced travel cases to withstand the rigors of traveling. I and many other VoiceLive 2 users have also found a cheap dust cover would have been a nice extra, and many of us have either built our own, or are using cheap plastic shower caps (which seem to work pretty well). I'm looking to TC Helicon to remedy these problems in the future, as they are an excellent company who really listens to their customers.
I would also love to see owner/customers/porgrammers program more classis cover songs into the TC Helicon website database for everyone to try.
Quality of build, effects, and quality of genius electronic engineering from the people at TC Helicon are either on par with the industry's very best, and an many cases go well beyond the accepted norms for excellence in the industry. TC Helicon sets the new bar for excellence in floor-based, user-controlled voice effects. The units are designed in Canada, but are manufactured in China (so I take off one point for that). I and many other VL2 users have noticed the effects foot switches are a bit loud during operation...making for awkward switching during quiet passages of music during live performance, and can be problematic in studio situations as well. I took off one point from being excellent because of the mechanically noisy switching. The noise is not electronic in nature. However, the switches are very heavy duty, and lighted, and should provide years of trouble-free switching even on dimly lit stage areas. On very loud stage environments these relatively noisy switches should not be a problem given all the other noises in live arenas and stages.
To me, even though the VoiceLive 2 MP-75 package seems a bit expensive at the retail level, TC Helicon's VoiceLive 2 makes certain you're getting what you pay for...top quality professional vocal effects (normally only found in the best of studios), placed in a heavy duty stage-ready case with multifunctional lights surrounding the stomp buttons, all in an attractive floor unit designed for use by singers during live performances. Singers, and sound people could pay thousands of dollars more for multi-effect units that don't perform as well, or have near the capabilities of the VoiceLive 2. A singer being able to control their own effects in real-time while performing is a great idea for many.
On the downside of value, if TC Helicon wanted to provide a bit more value for their customers who are already shelling out many hundreds of dollars for the VL-2, they should also either provide a custom-built expression pedal with the unit, or list it as an optional extra. I'd really like my expression pedal to cosmetically match my VL-2 and carry the TC Helicon trademark. Also, the whole expensive effects unit is completely worthy of a hard shell case made by TC Helicon and thrown into the the deal from the manufacturer from the get go. ...Not the little soft shell case currently being offered by TC Helicon's website to protect a several of their electronic items...I want one specifically made for the VL2! It's worth it!

The control over the harmonies, and lead vocals is amazing. Problem is, all modifications and creation of new 'patches' or 'presets' MUST be done through navigation of the onboard buttons and display. This thing will only be on the floor during shows -- otherwise, plan on buying a stand for this thing to be on while you configure it.
There were plans to have an Editor created by a third party, but that seems to have fallen through, at present a very basic Editor has been created by someone in the user community.
To have gotten it this close, and have no computer-based user interface (such as Line6, who has seemed to have gotten absolutely right with their POD products) is a huge swing and a miss.
Bottom line: Pros who are comfortable with detailed navigation of button-based menus, GET THIS!! However, if you are a mid-level user who is expecting a product to shine right out of the box without reading a single page of the user manual, give this one a pass.

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 Floor-Based Vocal Processor:

I'm 67 and have bee been playing "professionally" for over 50 years. I'm probably more of a semi-pro since I've never relied solely on my music to provide for my family. I believe there are a lot more of us out here than there are "full time" professionals. I bought this as an impulse, and although it really has nothing I can find in it that I can use in my music performances, it is fun to play with. I've been reading the manual (repeatedly) and am still trying to find out how to program sounds (voices) that I can actually use. The voices sound "electronic" (duh) and don't really fit in with my music. Regardless, I'm finally to the point in life where I can afford some "toys" I really don't have to have, but I simply want. I think my grand daughter who sings will probably get more out of it than I will. Unlike me, when she performs she sings a lot of material that has been written and recorded within the past 10 years. If you can afford to and want to have a fun little toy this is not a bad item. I however in good conscience would neither recommend or not recommend the purchase of the item for professional performing. Unless you have a high degree of proficiency in the use and programming of electronic devices (not just a TV recorder) using a manual not particularly written for us old pickers, it's a lot easier to just ask the audience to sing along when you need backup voices.

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 Floor-Based Vocal Processor:

I've had this for a few years now and pretty much only use one or two of the many presets. I think the manual is really lacking in teaching you how to effectively use this complex piece of equipment. Plus, making simple changes to the presets is difficult. e.g., if you just want to reduce the amount of delay you have to enter a complex menu that offers a lot of attributes that are not adequately discussed in the manual. Maybe a pro sound guy or gal can handle this, but for me it's a challenge. I mostly use 1 voice third up harmony on my voice with delay and reverb, and the sound is awesome.

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 Floor-Based Vocal Processor:

I had high hopes of this unit replacing the TC Helicon Voicetone Harmony G XT pedal I've used for a few years. After hours of trying to get the same effects with the VL2, which I expected to be even better, I must report that it is not. The harmony voices and my own voice have an unnatural sound and timbre, which is such a huge disappointment. My Voicetone Harmony pedal sounds like my actual voice doing harmonies, records well in the studio and is so much easier to operate. True, this has more effects inside, but they aren't of much use to me if the voices sound fake, not like munchkins, but electronically derived, if that makes sense. The idea of saveable patches is nice but having gone through all of them I was dissatisfied; especially compared to the less expensive, easier to operate Voicetone Harmony pedal (I use the models for guitar and MIDI). I am an optimist and tried and tried to find good reasons to justify what I thought was an upgrade. Maybe if you never had a harmonizer before and bought this, you would be amazed, but I am sticking with what I've been using; it is very clean and human sounding but this does not sound like human harmonies to me, sorry to say. I can't discern what words are being sung in harmony and they come out in harmony but not with clear enunciations. I hate to give this not so good review, but this is my true and accurate experience. Musicians Friend has an excellent return policy, so you can always give this a try for yourself. Non-musicians in the audience may still be amazed but to me, the quality and clarity of the harmonies are what counts, not an electronic facsimile.

    This unit is all the mid level performer needs in a vocal processor/harmonizer. It sounds great and is very versatile. There is a learning curve with this unit. It will take some time to master it especially for live performance. Easier to use if you are recording and can take your time figuring out the effects you want. There are so many it's almost mind boggling.

        Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 Floor-Based Vocal Processor:

        I got this a few weeks ago and have been messing around with it a lot. It's controls are somewhat intuitive, and it's not as daunting of a task to operate it as it first seems when you look at the unit. It definitely has a "wow" factor when you first sing through it. After a couple of weeks of using it I got over the honeymoon phase with it and started noticing that it colored the sound of my vocals even when in bypass mode. And not in a good way. It wasn't bad or terrible, but it wasn't un-noticeable either. I watched the video tutorials available from TC Electronics and noticed that the guy that demo's the units voice is also colored in the same way by the tone of the unit. It's almost like a very subtle digital distortion that's hidden behind the vocal. With a nasal toned voice it would probably be hidden enough to be used without anyone noticing it. If you know what you're listening for you will hear it. I'm probably being too picky, but I'm what's called a "tone chaser" and look for purity in tone in my guitar and vocal sounds. I have been using the TC Electronic Harmony G pedal for a couple of years. To my ears the Harmony G has way less tonal coloring than the VoiceLive 2. These are the trade-offs in the vocal effects vs tone purity quest. The VoiceLive 2, while a fully functional and interesting machine, doesn't quite cut it for me to use professionally. It has its place, but for now on my stage I'll stick with the smaller, clearer Harmony G pedal for my harmony needs.

          Love the unit. So many functions to learn, will take a while to master. Already using it for live performance. Expect to put unit to further good use in home studio. I am impressed how the harmonies can follow instantaneously my guitar, keys, or other instruments I connected through the unit. The microsecond delay/shift makes the vocal harmonies sound like other vocalists rather than just my vocal modulated. I can barely wait to get past the basics and give this thing a real workout.

          Sales person was so helpful, great shipping in about 3 days and as good a product as I had expected. Easy to setup and to use. Will need to do a little tweeking on the effects, other than that, great.

              Did A/B comparison with my DigiTech Vocalist LIVE 3. The Voicelive has all the bells and whistles you could ask for. Lots of way cool applications to use. My one gripe, and it's a BIG one, (and was the deciding factor in my choosing to return the unit) was the harmonies and even my ORIGINAL voice sounded too digital, too processed. Wasn't noticeable right away until I unplugged the unit and used my old DigiTech LIVE 3 in the same set-up. Granted it doesn't have all the pre-sets, but since I'm looking for better QUALITY of the voice sound, I chose to keep using the Digitech.

                Very realistic true sounding harmonies, just amazing!

                Great for live bands that lack harmonies and want to sound fuller in over all performance. our drummer does some back up vocals but does not no hoe to harmonize and most time just sings along with the lead vocals in the same key, I singed lead/backup vocals in Beatles tribute band in 80's. I tried to teach others but some people just cant grasp. this is one amazing unit it allows me to and two or three part harmonies where needed and add fuller sound to our songs.

                I would recommend it to anyone for live or recording.
