OVERVIEW

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.

  • Studio-quality mic preamp (Burr Brown INA163 based) with 48V phantom power

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.

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.

Not great

By B'nulu

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

Processes too much background sound. Harmony modes pick up my acoustic guitar causing warbled distortion. The vocal harmonies also sound too electronic or canned. Editing is very cumbersome. Most of the pre-sets are pretty lame.

This Sucks Man...

By Bob A.

from Pa.

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.

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

By VintageCollector

See all my reviews

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.

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.

Be careful with this unit

By havyrodriguez

from Miami

See all my reviews

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

See all my reviews

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.

great tool but a few problems

By Mike from Mariposa

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.

A bonus for any singer!

By Underdog frontman

from Pleasanton, CA

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

I've owned this for almost a year now and it has improved the quality of my "OK" voice drastically. None of my other band mates do backup vocals, and this little box takes care of it. It does have an extreme learning curve, though. Learning how to set harmonies is tough, but it can be done with patience and hard work. If you want your band to sound better vocally in ALL aspects, take the time to learn and use this one. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it!

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

Delivers what it promises. Presets are usable right out of the box. Very stage and performance friendly. I recommend it for bands that do not, already, have a good back-up singer. Also, anyone who wants to upgrade their vocal performances, will easily be able to do so in abundance with the VoiceLive processor.

Just amazing

By section-ei8ht

from Ohio

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

I got mine about two weeks ago and found it kind of hard to set up at first and then the more I messed with it the easier it got.Now I can get it to do what ever I want, The harmony scale are still a little rough for me but I'm getting it. I used it on stage the first week I got it and it was so cool!! Being able to add the Delay right where I wanted it at the rate I want (no more counting the sound man to be paying attention) The doubling on this thing is great and really adds to those chourses. I do mostly Rock and the 3rd above comes in handy all the time. Having the ability to hold notes is wonderful and really adds a new feel to so many songs and the way you can set up the backing vocals is great. You set the gender, volume, vibrato, style loose or tight, key. You can get the coolest sounds. I say it is a must for any proforming artist. The learning curve is a little steep but you will get it. They give you very simple manuel and a video guide. I ve gotten things like this with manuels with 100 pages in and it would take forever to figure out. I had this down in a day or 2. and Im not a rocket scientist just a singer>>>

Best I have ever used

By Josh Ramses

from Michigan

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

I bought this thinking it was like the other vocal units I have owned. I was dead wrong. I will not sing without this unit. It really works. The harmony's are just about as real as you can get. I sing in a small (3) piece band and this has help make us a step above the rest. The MIDI is excellent when hooked up to a keyboard. Don't hesitate to get this. I have been playing for over 20 years and this thing really does what it says. Take the time to learn it, it is well worth the time.

Good but not Great.

By Idatedwendy

from Cin City

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

Being the only singer in a band, can be tough so I bought this to add backing vocals. Does a pretty good job. But if you use it on too many songs in a night it gets real "canned" or "Processed" sounding. I also tried using it to harmonize a voice that was recorded, sounded horrible. For voice modulation, it does a decent job lowering your voice an octive, but poor on raising it an octave if you are doing one in, one out(So I still can't sing AC/DC). I started having some problems with it. It would quit working and just show an "F" on the screen. I would open it up, make sure it was clean, and it started working again. I talked to their rep at NAMM and they said they have some kind of grounding problem that causes my exact problem. I thought, cool, I will fix it for good but this wasn't my problem. I think I found it though because there are some connecting wires from one level to another that were rubbing on a sharp metal edge. The wires rubbed through and were grounding out. If the wires were 1" longer it wouldn't have happened. I taped them up and haven't had the problem again yet. For this price you shouldn't have that kind of issue. There is no substitute for real harmonies, but I guess this is as good as it gets. Set up is very involved and takes some work for custom harmonies. It needs a USB interface to save your setups and a copy function to copy a base setup to other presets. These both would be helpful features.

Probably the best machine around

By Claus Nygaard

from Copenhagen, Denmark

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

I am the happy owner of TC Helicon's VoiceLive. It's a marvelous machine. Great integration of harmony voices, pitch correction and useful effects. The sound is just so great. The only drawback I have found is the limit of 99 presents. As it comes with 99 presents already, it means that I have to change/delete a factory preset, if I wish to save my own preset in the machine memory. They should at least have provided us with another 99 free slots. Anyway, that doesn't remove the high quality of the output - and when it all come down to it, the audience doesn't read the preset-panel on the gadget, they hear the sound ;-)

That can't be me singing can it ???

By Paul B-Sf8lp

from Dubai, UAE

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

Though designed for live performance, I tend to use mine in the studio. Great for adding fab sounding harmonies to my vocals (which now sound 100% better). Great for running my son's band's vocalist through post recording, to clean up errant pitch problems. Can handle an instrument and vocal mike simultaneously (with different amounts of reverb and delay for each) then running out on one balanced cable to the PA or recording desk. Limiter, foot pedal control, phantom power - this is one very useful and musical sounding tool. Well built, too.Only downside, takes a bit of tweaking (and knowledge of music) and is expensive. but in my book, worth every penny.

Perfect With Midi

By JerryPiper.com

from Newburgh, NY

Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Vocal Floor Processor:

Expensive, but worth every penny to add incredible vocals to your band or solo gig. I tweeked the 'octave up' setting, adding the built in Rev and Delay, and now I'm singing Boston, Foreigner and Zep - no problem! Eagles and Crosby Stills and Nssh are a breeze. For my solo gigs the midi setting lets me add harmonies by playing the voices I want on my keys. It took me a week to learn it - seemed hard at first, but its easy now. Lots of features!
