TC Helicon Voice Live 3

! No longer available


I just got one of these from the good, good people at Zzounds.  It's going to take me a while to figure out all the bells and whistles, but if you watch the entire video you'll be pretty amazed by what it can do!

The only suggestion I have is not to make it too overpowering.  There is a guy local who uses something like that and his harmonies are as loud as he is and it sounds very unnatural.  This guy in the demo makes it sound pretty natural. 
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

The other trick is to use it sparingly.  I've been finding myself only using it for one line of an entire song, which is super effective!

To put it another way, the off switch can't be used like the one on Kurt Hammett's Wah-wah pedal!

Cool!  I've seen people use those pretty effectively.  The tracking and pitch are better than what most people can do.

I used a simple 3rd above for my entire version of Roy Orbison's "Leah" and it was very "other worldly". and if I may be as bold as to say, beautiful!

Does it have some sort of input for the music so it can figure out the key, and do major/minor thirds as needed.  Not familiar with the TC, but the other harmonizers I've seen worked that way.

You can either plug your guitar into the effects, and switch between guitar effects (all the TC stuff, HOF reverb, etc.) or just run the guitar straight through, and it determines what kind of chord you're playing. It also has amp modeling.  I've already got the amp I wanted, and the effects  wanted, so I've been going straight through.  You can do vocal effects, harmony, guitar effects, and amp modeling all simultaneously, so it makes it well worth the price. ($599.).  If you wanted it to, it could clean up a ton of Rock and Roll debris from around your feet.  Personally, I prefer to waddle through a pile of techno-rubble, so I bypass a lot of it's bells and whistles.
