OVERVIEW

Compact, enriched vocal processing effect that will have you loving the way you sound.

No matter if you’re a seasoned professional singer, or if you’re just at the start of your career, the VoiceLive Play from TC Helicon will deliver impacting results that will not only enhance your performance, it will boost your confidence level too. With a host of professional features like harmony and pitch correction, sing along, and a very useful practice mode, the VoiceLive Play will have you sounding your best in no time. The unit is compact in size compared to the other VoiceLive units, but it still packs the same power and professional results.

Sound like the pros
You can have instant and incredibly, intuitive access to vocal effects that come straight from our VoiceLive range. Featuring automatic backing harmonies, vocal double tracking, pristine EQ and compression, lush reverbs, hard-tuned robo-voice, the list goes on – all of the goose-bumps-on-your-arms effects that make today’s billboard hit vocals “pop”.

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.

Pick a Genre, any Genre
The Genre function is there to help you browse the massive palette of 200+ vocal presets in VoiceLive Play. Press the Genre button and search by music genre or effect type. If you’ve never used effects before, you’ll quickly learn how to find the sound you’re looking for using this method.

Make It a Hit
HIT is a performance-inspired feature for building intensity into any vocal performance. Every preset has a base level effect that you can build upon by pressing the HIT button that adds effects on top. For example, you could start with a simple reverb and tight doubling then select the “HIT” feature in the chorus to add harmonies and a megaphone – all from one preset.

Practice makes Perfect
Use PRACTICE to bring up an intelligent pitch display and your singing stats. Then you will be able to monitor your performance in real-time to see what notes you’re hitting too sharp, and which ones you’re coming up a bit flat on. As you improve, you’ll notice your accuracy score getting better.

Sing Along
Plug in and practice using the Vocal Cancel function and your MP3 player. You can then record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer.

Loop Around
The VLOOP performance looper allows you to create a loop instantly, so you can have an astounding layered effect with the ability to turn effects on and off, creating a completely unique performance.

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 a bit of room 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.

      This unit is fantastic...took a little while to figure out how to set it up and navigate around but that is with every new. Best bet is going to u tube for their video manuals..got a lot out of them. Now that it's set up and ready to roll, I think this unit is fantastic..I've been playing drums and singing for 35 years in bands and this will really take it to the next level for anyone..GO GET ONE.. :)

      Use this in my home studio with a shure sm58. So many different effects, and more available on line. Easy to use, just takes a little time to get thru all the options. Sounds great! Love the way my voice sounds with 3 part harmonies.

      Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

      I play cover tunes as a solo act using backing tracks. Bought a small mixer with the usual dull effects. So I bought this mostly for reverb and Delay which are excellent. But am finding the cheezy harmonies actually work surprisingly well. You would never use them in a studio, but for a bunch of drunk punters, this is the ticket.
      It holds enough pre sets to cover your entire set list, I actually found 7 songs I do and with minor tweaking your good to go. The best feature is the HIT button which will add a chosen efx only when pressed. That way you can have a reverb/delay for the song and only hit the harmony for the chorus or special effects like a feedback loop.

      Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

      Got one used. Good shape, and fully functional. Easy to hook up - straightforward and instant-easy access to presets. The presets, themselves, are a mixed lot of somewhat useful and godawful. Reprogramming this thing is a real challenge, and takes a lot of time with the poorly written manual to figure out. Still, I have found it useful, especially the non-harmony effects. For the price, I think it is a good first step into vocal processing for semi-pros looking to add a bit of polish to their vocal sound.

      Got this for my wife at a third the price of my VoiceLive 2. Would have been nice to have an instructional DVD to go with it or a simplified booklet. Folded paper instructions leaves a lot to be desired. Oh, well, on to the YouTube demos. Gave it a 4 because of instructional deficiency. But would give a 5 for the unit.
      Not really impressed with the feature that finds musical key from room sound.

        Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

        I ordered not expecting much. It is extremely easy to use, with at least 20-30 presets usable right out of the box. It does sense harmony fairly well, even in noisy, live environments. The effects (delays, verbs) are very good. The doubling and pitch effects make mediocre voices excellent. The harmonies are best used sparingly, with the levels reduced below the level of the original voice. Great for the GB/oldies/wedding band lacking singers. Not so much for a pro group...

        Not too much, not too little

        Pros

        • Easy To Use
        • Great Price
        • Harmonies Are Good
        • Not Overblown

        Cons

        • Color Is Kinda Lame

        Best Uses

        • Cover Bands

        Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

        I bought this primarily as a means to put vocal control back in my hands and not the sound guy. I'm in a cover band and the clubs we play may or may not have house sound. When it does, I was used to turning over all of my vocal effects to the whim of the sound guy they hired for the night. Not any more. This little box fits nicely on my guitar pedal board and puts me in control of everything I need to dress up the vocals. Frankly I bought it because we were going to add Purple Rain to our setlist. The delay is important on that tune, so I looked into what simple effects I can trigger from the stage to make it work. After reading and watching many reviews, I decided this box was the way to go. This one seemed to be an excellent pricepoint for the effects included, without too many menus to navigate to do simple tasks. This was the perfect balance. I bought it expecting the harmonies to be cheesy and useless (just like auto tune). I was wrong. The harmonies are actually pretty darn good. Now I use it all the time, if only as a crutch for my mic-shy bandmates. I do not rely on the pedal to set the key. I hardcode the key into a preset for each tune. I gigged with it last weekend and was VERY impressed with how it turned out. My only problem was that my new MP-75 mic button triggered on the harmonies when I didn't want them. I'll fix that next time. Otherwise, this is a phenomenal pedal for the price.
