TC Helicon's Most Comprehensive Vocal FX Suite
TC Helicon's Most Comprehensive Vocal FX Suite

          It’s all here: Doubling, Harmony, Echo, Reverb, HardTune, Flanger, Chopper, Choir and more. But it’s here with a difference: with upgrades, new modes and new harmony options. Watch Tom Lang show off what the VoiceLive 3 platform can do...

Vocal FX Highlights
Vocal FX Highlights

    •    Upgraded & expanded suite of our renowned vocal effects
    •    New Harmony sounds – Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed Mode
    •    New Vocoder with Voice Controlled Synth and Robot Modes
    •    Adaptive Tone for a truly professional, produced sound
    •    HIT button to create FX impact
    •    VoiceSupport app for downloading & managing more presets

Double
Double

          Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix. It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

For more information on Doubling or “double tracking” see: Wikipedia Double Tracking

Delay
Delay

          Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats. Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

For more information on the technical aspects of delay, see: Wikipedia Delay

Reverb
Reverb

          Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom.
Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

HardTune
HardTune

          Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it HardTune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way. The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable. To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Synth
Synth

          Vocoding is the process of using a “carrier” signal to create synthesized speech and singing. You can use your guitar to guide all sorts of robot, synthesizer and tuning effects. Troy Sanders of Mastodon uses the VoiceTone Synth in his live performances.

To read more about Vocoding see: Wikipedia Vocoder

Transducer
Transducer

          Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here. Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

For more information on Transducers see: Wikipedia Transducer

and Distortion: Wikipedia Distortion

µMod
µMod

          µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

For more information on Chorus see: Wikipedia Chorus Effect

and Flanging: Wikipedia Flanging Effect

Harmony
Harmony

          Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

For more information on harmony and musical theory, check out: Wikipedia Harmony

Our scale chart, showing harmony notes created from an input note, can be found here: TC-H Harmony Chart

Choir
Choir

          Choir makes it sound like you have a huge group of singers singing in unison with you! Choir is perfect for huge choruses or pieces where you want to sound like you have a massive 30 person choir behind you.

Rhythmic
Rhythmic

          Modulate your volume, panning and gender with anything from a subtle pulse to an aggressive rhythmic chop. Rhythmic allows you to recreate classic tremolo effects or experiment with wild syncopated modulation.

Stutter
Stutter

          Remember Max Headroom from the 80’s with his stutter-y, jerky speech patterns? That’s the kind of effect you can re-create with the Stutter effect. You can chop and cut your voice to create very interesting patterns and repeats. The sampler takes a tiny slice of vocals and puts it through the wringer. Stutter is the kind of effect that, when used sparingly, can have a huge wow factor in a performance.

New Sounds and Styles
New Sounds and Styles

          Expand your musical possibilities with exciting, new Harmony modes - Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed-Mode - There’s also an authentic Vocoder with voice-controlled polyphonic synth and robot modes so you can play your voice like an instrument. FX upgrades include new delay filters, new HardTune styles and better sounding doublings.

Personal Sound Engineer Included
Personal Sound Engineer Included

          Equipped with our trademark Adaptive Tone™, VL3X is your personal sound engineer providing the one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating, giving your voice the impact and presence to always stand out in the mix.

Get Loud, No Clipping
Get Loud, No Clipping

          The automatic Mic Gain feature takes the guesswork out of setting your input level properly. Simply sing your loudest into the mic and VL3X will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.

No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones
No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones

          The guitar section of VL3X rivals even the most pristine pedal boards – thanks to legendary effects from TC Electronic like Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus, and Vortex Flanger. And you can also choose just the perfect amp emulation from vintage British to classic American.

Creativity Amplified
Creativity Amplified

          What can you change in the guitar and amp presets? Here’s an example: The Amp effect not only simulates physical amplifiers, but also provides controls for EQ, Gain, Tube/Transistor simulation and speaker emulation. The level of EQ control in the Amp block is huge, providing controls for both the pre-gain and post-gain stage parametric EQ – something that most real-world amplifiers don’t offer. We’re talking about crazy deep customization —same goes for all of the guitar effects. Don’t be ashamed of your sonic obsessions. They can all come true.

Amp
Amp

          Select from 20 clean or distorted amp models designed to faithfully recreate classic amps and speakers, or adjust the settings to create your own. At the push of a button you can sound like you're playing through a piercingly clean American amp, a huge, distorted British amp, or anything in-between. Have your own amp? You can still use the Voicelive 3 for overdrive with one of the 4 drive pedal styles which gives you all the gain you need without any speaker modelling.

Drive
Drive

          Need some more crunch? Our Drive effect allows you to toggle on and off your amp's overdrive and boost, and edit your tone to taste. Create anything from subtle saturation to heavy distortion.

Reverb
Reverb

          Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom. Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

Delay
Delay
Compression
Compression

          Compressors are used to control dynamic range in musical material. Essentially, you’re reducing the difference between the loudest and softest levels, which provides more even sounding output.

          For vocals, it’s extremely common to use high levels of compression on a lead track, so that every word can be clearly heard over the music. When taken to extremes, compression can “hype” the sound, creating an effect unto itself.

          When related to guitar, compression provides enhanced sustain and attack. Combined with overdrive/distortion effects, you can create very even sounding rhythm or solo sounds.

For more information on Compression see: Wikipedia Dynamic Range Compression

Wah
Wah
µMod
µMod

          µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

For more information on Chorus see: Wikipedia Chorus Effect

and Flanging: Wikipedia Flanging Effect

Octaver
Octaver

          Make your guitar sound massive by blending in a pitched signal. Make your guitar sound a two octaves higher or lower, or any interval in-between. Perfect for recreating a bass guitar or making synth-like lead tones.

Rhythmic
Rhythmic

          Remember Max Headroom from the 80’s with his stutter-y, jerky speech patterns? That’s the kind of effect you can re-create with the Rhythmic effect. You can chop and cut your voice to create very interesting patterns and repeats. There’s also a sampler available to take a tiny slice of vocals and put it through the wringer. Rhythmic is the kind of effect that, when used sparingly, can have a huge wow factor in a performance.

BodyRez for Acoustic Guitar
BodyRez for Acoustic Guitar

          More of an acoustic player? VL3X will optimize the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with ground-breaking BodyRez™. Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the beautiful full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.

The Unbeatable Guitar Road Kit
The Unbeatable Guitar Road Kit

          The FX smorgasbord only starts with the TonePrint effects styles. If you’re a seeker of sounds, you’ll be blown away by the options. It’s loaded with great tone classics such as wah, octave, tremolo, and more. Did we mention that Guitar chords automatically guide vocal Harmony, HardTune, and Synth effects?

Guitar & Headphone Cable
Guitar & Headphone Cable

          VL3X comes with a specially designed combination Guitar & Headphone Cable too! This is a revelation if you use in ear headphones because it combines your guitar and headphone lines into one slim cable so you have ample freedom to move while you groove.

Looping Highlights
Looping Highlights

    •    Powerful multi-track looper with intuitive control layout and infinite overdubs
    •    3-phrase looping with selectable layering and serial techniques

Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

µMod

          µMod, pronounced “micro mod” contains effects that chorus, flange or otherwise modulate the signal. These effects can range from subtle to extreme.

Harmony
Harmony

          Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

Choir
Choir

          Choir makes it sound like you have a huge group of singers singing in unison with you! Choir is perfect for huge choruses or pieces where you want to sound like you have a massive 30 person choir behind you.

Rhythmic
Rhythmic

          Modulate your volume, panning and gender with anything from a subtle pulse to an aggressive rhythmic chop. Rhythmic allows you to recreate classic tremolo effects or experiment with wild syncopated modulation.

Stutter
Stutter

          Remember Max Headroom from the 80’s with his stutter-y, jerky speech patterns? That’s the kind of effect you can re-create with the Stutter effect. You can chop and cut your voice to create very interesting patterns and repeats. The sampler takes a tiny slice of vocals and puts it through the wringer. Stutter is the kind of effect that, when used sparingly, can have a huge wow factor in a performance.

New Sounds and Styles

Creativity Amplified
Creativity Amplified

          What can you change in the guitar and amp presets? Here’s an example: The Amp effect not only simulates physical amplifiers, but also provides controls for EQ, Gain, Tube/Transistor simulation and speaker emulation. The level of EQ control in the Amp block is huge, providing controls for both the pre-gain and post-gain stage parametric EQ – something that most real-world amplifiers don’t offer. We’re talking about crazy deep customization —same goes for all of the guitar effects. Don’t be ashamed of your sonic obsessions. They can all come true.

Amp
Amp

          Select from 20 clean or distorted amp models designed to faithfully recreate classic amps and speakers, or adjust the settings to create your own. At the push of a button you can sound like you're playing through a piercingly clean American amp, a huge, distorted British amp, or anything in-between. Have your own amp? You can still use the Voicelive 3 for overdrive with one of the 4 drive pedal styles which gives you all the gain you need without any speaker modelling.

Drive

          Need some more crunch? Our Drive effect allows you to toggle on and off your amp's overdrive and boost, and edit your tone to taste. Create anything from subtle saturation to heavy distortion.

Reverb
Reverb

          Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom. Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

Delay
Delay
Compression
Compression

          Compressors are used to control dynamic range in musical material. Essentially, you’re reducing the difference between the loudest and softest levels, which provides more even sounding output.

          For vocals, it’s extremely common to use high levels of compression on a lead track, so that every word can be clearly heard over the music. When taken to extremes, compression can “hype” the sound, creating an effect unto itself.

          When related to guitar, compression provides enhanced sustain and attack. Combined with overdrive/distortion effects, you can create very even sounding rhythm or solo sounds.

For more information on Compression see: Wikipedia Dynamic Range Compression

Octaver

          Make your guitar sound massive by blending in a pitched signal. Make your guitar sound a two octaves higher or lower, or any interval in-between. Perfect for recreating a bass guitar or making synth-like lead tones.

          Remember Max Headroom from the 80’s with his stutter-y, jerky speech patterns? That’s the kind of effect you can re-create with the Rhythmic effect.

Double
Double

          Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix. It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

For more information on Doubling or “double tracking” see: Wikipedia Double Tracking

Delay
Delay

          Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats. Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

For more information on the technical aspects of delay, see: Wikipedia Delay

Reverb
Reverb

          Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom.
Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Reverberation

HardTune
HardTune

          Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it HardTune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way. The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable. To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Synth
Synth

          Vocoding is the process of using a “carrier” signal to create synthesized speech and singing. You can use your guitar to guide all sorts of robot, synthesizer and tuning effects. Troy Sanders of Mastodon uses the VoiceTone Synth in his live performances.

To read more about Vocoding see: Wikipedia Vocoder

Transducer

          Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here.

          The HIT button turns on multiple effects at once to add effect layers or to create quick A/B scenes for each preset. Use it to add dazzling vocal effects for the chorus, or strip down a guitar part for the verse, or even a combination of both vocal and guitar effects changes – you decide.
