I wouldn’t necessarily say that my TC-Helicon products have changed the way I work but they’ve definitely made my work a lot more fun and easy. Just scrolling through the presets on the Voice Live 2 alone has given me new ideas not only for my current and future projects but for past projects as well. The Voice Live 2 & Voice Tone units open up so many possibilities. Where I once used to cringe at the thought of coming up with vocal harmony parts for a particular song, I now look forward to that aspect of it with the help of the Voice Live 2.
“I’ve never had any official voice coaching or vocal lessons (although I did take guitar, bass and drum lessons) and without even knowing I started using the VoiceLive 2 and realized that not only does it make really cool sounds but it also makes me sing almost in perfect pitch. A lot of people think – ‘Oh, you’ve got that effect on and you’re not singing’, but, you actually have to sing really close to the note to get it to work right so it’s almost like it’s my own personal vocal coach as I find my pitch is really spot on now even when I’m not using it as a result so it’s really helped me out like that.”
It is clear that every part within the mic is based around quality. This doesn’t just mean that the mic can withstand the torture of live performance, it also means that the sound quality that you get is absolutely amazing. I tested this mic against other mics at my studio such as a Shure SM-58 and the Audio Technica MB 3000L and the difference was very obvious and for the most part extremely positive.
I use the VoiceLive 2 mostly because of its astounding capacity to create and then combine, in a very intelligent manner, harmonized voices together. This magical result makes the unit an essential tool for live and studio purposes. In the studio, for instance, on each song that I’m about to record, I edit voices on the VoiceLive 2, making them sound realistic or not, before finally printing them down to tape or DAW. The goal is to add different colors to the tone of my lead vocal or my own backing vocals. It helps them cut through the final mix, and I must admit that the VoiceLive 2 does the job incredibly! I would add that the effects inside are impressive, powerful and give a highly immeasurable answer to the most demanding singer…

Beardman recently did an article for The Sun (one of the biggest selling newspapers in the UK). They focussed on the 10 things in his life that he couldn’t do without – one of them just so happened to be his TC-Helicon VoiceLive! (note: Beardyman is currently using VoiceLive 2) See the article below:
“It’s very important when you have a vocal heavy band or a singer/songwriter style of music that you hear the vocals clearly but also that they not overtake the entire sound. A great reverb and effect unit like the VoiceLive Rack will help put the vocal in the right spot in the mix – where it blends with everything else but is still totally present without dominating all the other instruments on stage.“
Hey Guys, Beardyman here! It’s taken some time but I’ve managed to go through all your videos and finally pick some winners! It wasn’t easy as there was a lot of great stuff in there, well done to you all! And now, the winners… The winner of the grand prize is BartoxOfficial with his video [...]
Every vocalist knows that having great singing technique is an important part of their craft, but having killer sound and effects to support, capture, enhance and deliver your vocal sound on the live stage is another aspect entirely. You can be the best singer in the world, but sadly this is of no use if your voice isn’t being delivered to your audience’s ears in the best way possible.
