    Vocal perfection at your feet.

    The TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor puts all the vocal tools you love and use in one dedicated box engineered for live music performance. Powerful EQ, compression, and delay are combined with rich reverb, harmony, correction, and doubling algorithms from TC-Helicon.

    4 unique harmony logic algorithms can add harmonies generated from your lead voice or can be used by a backup singer to create a multivoice back-up ensemble. Each of the 4 harmony voice parts use the Hybrid Shifting algorithm. This superior pitch-shifting algorithm is combined with a voice-trained pitch-detection algorithm and human-modeled naturalization parameters to create natural-sounding harmonies.

    The 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.

    The VoiceLive contains the VOSTM Limiter--an optical limiter optimized for voice. Its analog architecture ensures you'll never distort the mic input and maintain premium sound quality.

    8 footswitches and 4 control modes make VoiceLive easy to use in your performance. A user footswitch is assignable to TAP Tempo (for delay), Harmony Hold, and other useful parameters. You can also use an expression pedal to sweep through assignable modifiers.

    The bottom plate is constructed using a powder-coated steel-plate with anti-skid rubber matting. Controls are recessed and reinforced by double aluminum construction.

    The sound quality from this device is excellent. People at church are absolutely amazed at what they hear coming from a single vocalist. The harmonies sound as if they are being sung by real people. After using the unit for a month, I found several shortcomings and enhancements that would make this a much better device. Two modes of harmony are available, scale mode and song mode. I?ve found the scale mode not very useful since few songs seem to match the harmonies, especially when there are non-major keys (such as minor keys or 7th keys) in the tune. Song mode is by far the best mode but has a limitation of only 30 steps normally, one per chord change. I?ve found this a very limiting factor in the usability of the device. The only option is to use two songs to obtain more chords but having to press several different buttons to change songs makes it difficult to accomplish while playing the guitar. The only way to save and restore your program changes is via a MIDI interface. This seems a very crude method on a device that is so powerful. A USB connection to a PC would have been much more useful, especially if it allowed editing of the programming without having to use the knobs on the device. Expect a fairly steep learning curve for the VoiceLive. It is extremely powerful in regards to your control over the harmony voices. You will have to spend some time just playing around with all the settings to get a feel for what they do. A good understanding of scales and harmonies is also needed.As far as sound quality goes, all I can say is WOW! You really need to hear this thing in action to believe how good it sounds. For recording, the unit is extremely quite. There is a slight breathing effect present when you stop singing and your vocal mic picks up your guitar notes and tries to add harmonies to it. It?s not noticeable in live performances, but is in the recordings. A new software update just released is supposed to help this. A pass thru for the instrument would be a nice feature also.

    Could've been great

    By whitesnakesthebest

    from Baton Rouge,LA

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I purchased the voice live in 2006. I loved it while it worked. It really does sound great and has really nice features. Unfortunately for me, mine had power issues common with this piece of gear. It turns on then turns off repeatedly while plugged in. I read stories about peoples units continuing to do this after being sent in for repair. The only way I've been able to fix mine is by picking it up and dropping it onto the carpet. I know it sounds ridiculous but it actually works lol. So, if you are one of the possible many who have a voice live unit laying around taking up space because it no longer functions, go ahead and drop it from about a foot and a half or two feet then see what you've got. It worked for mine for a little while. Then you just drop it again lol.

    great rugged unit

    By primetimeband

    from louisiana

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I don't know what the other reviewers units are like but I have been using mine live every weekend for several months and have not had a reboot or performance problem. I do bring mine home in a gig bag (not even padded). I do , however, power it from my Furman AR15 voltage regulator, so it is receiving regulated conditioned power. More features and programming than I will ever use live, although that is its forte. I have used it in my studio with the SPDIF output and the software editor and works well there also.

    T.C. Helicon voice Death Pedal

    By wastedgreenbackman

    from Brooklyn,N.Y.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    It's great when it works which is next to never, avoid this purchase unless you like customer service that sucks and ignores you for weeks at a time while you holding the most expensive paper weight on your block. Mine has been replaced twice already and their trying to wiggle out of a 3rd. Good luck people.

    Powerful and Complex

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I purchased the Voicelive about 2 months ago and have been playinng with it a little each day. My conclusions are it is very powerful, works best if yo have real music theory (if you dont either get some or purchae the digiitech) and is incredible.To simplify use, I suggest midi with a PC/MAC and the Free VYSOR VOICELIVE software. it makes it simpler with a mouse instead of the limited interface controls.For live performance, I use the Vysor to get my settings (controls most of the functions), record it to my sequencer software, store to laptop and am ready to do a performance without having to push the bottons.. If you have a keyboard (I use the Edirol PC80 with edirol UM-1x midi interface, which comes with sonar for sequencer, total cost less than 200)you can setup the exact notes for harmony much simpler. I could teach a 3 day class to explain all he features. I am a bassist and use midi to keep the number of band mambers to a minimum. This allows you to work with people with minimal vocal power therefore not making your search for peopel who can play well and sing well, you can just take the players.Also, with the advent of the digitech, these units are selling on Craig's list for a fraction fo new cost. It's the same guts as the studio rack unit. Totally worth every penny. good luck and be patient.

    Be careful with this unit

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I have 3 units. first they don't like movement, carry the unit separated in a foam protected case, this unit is extremely allergic to humidity and rain, it has a lot of settings that you'll never use no matter your style, it comes with outputs and such that you will never use, with time will boot itself and would screw up your gig, now the quality of the sound are pretty good compared with the time that this unit was released and still it's better than competitive products, the dvd instructional does not give you info about half of the features. And there are volumes an parameters that you can not save ones the unit becomes defective. Still you save money and time rehearsing vocals with your boys.

    Nice unit... but...

    By tcstx

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I like this unit for our singer... I purchased this to enhance his sound and it does a great job. The first unit I purchased was a Scratch & Dent and it kept re-booting...the new one has not given us a single problem (4 months).As for programming - this thing is a bear! Very small LCD, knobs are tiny, information is cryptic. They should have spent a little time on the user interface.The presets that comme on this thing are useless. My singer is not a techie, so he hated the thing right out of the box. Not a single preset is usable out of the box. This was a little frustrating because a lot of people work on first impressions. It would have been a lot nicer if the unit had come with a cascading number of effects as you went higher in presets - all the preprogrammed presets use almost every effect the unit has. Really silly.We started by stripping all the effects and adding them one at a time (as most effects processors are used) tweaking the sound as we added new effects... Time consuming - but only usable in this way in my oppinion.

    This Sucks Man...

    By Bob A.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    For the money spent I can hire 3 more vocalist. This unit is way too complicated and you will get no support from T C Helicon. All they want is to sell it and wait for the warranty to expire. Don't buy this if you are looking for octave ranges. You will sound like MICKEY MOUSE.

    This thing is amazing

    By Awaking the Fallen

    from Tempe, AZ

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I've been messing around with these things for awhile and just bought one today. The pitch correction and harmonies will add a lot to my live sound, though nothing can compete with real harmonies (I suggest anyone planning on using the auto harmonizer in the studio should sack up and learn how to sing, this is meant to compliment your voice and enhance your performance not be a replacement for talent) tc helicon has made a great product here and it's worth the price, however buy the warranty because I got a defective unit and I hear it's pretty common for them to fail.

    great tool but a few problems

    By Mike from Mariposa

    from Mariposa, CA

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

    I am waiting for my third unit, twice returned to factory but giving that, very quick response and customer service has been excellent. First time, everything was great and then just a complete breakdown.. nothing.. returned and in a week had a new unit, that one is back at the factory now. No phantom power. Seems the serial numbers are very close and maybe just a bad run. Overall still an excellent tool for a working player/singer, great classic country sounds are possible with as much extra as you are willing to study the details.
