Included Vocal FX

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

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 reverb, see: Wikipedia Delay

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.

Hard Tune

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it Hard Tune. 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.

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

MicroMod

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

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

Rhytmic

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.

Total Harmony Control

You can control harmonies with guitar, MIDI or MP3 input – and there are up to 8 voices with MIDI keyboard control or 4 doubled harmonies. You’ll sound smooth and natural even for extreme vocal styles.

More power, more voices

VoiceLive 2 contains virtually all the effects necessary to produce any vocal sounds of decades past, and into the future.

  • 5X processing power of typical floor processors
  • Separate Harmony and Doubling blocks
  • New Reverb, Tap Delay, µMod
  • FX block for T-Pain effect, Megaphone, Distortion
  • Global effects including Tone, Pitch Correction, and Guitar FX
  • All effects can be used simultaneously

rhythmic FX series

We think you’re gonna love VoiceLive 2’s new beat-bending possibilities:

  • Rhythmic Sample lets you create ‘delay-freeze’-style effects for freezing parts of your vocal performance, as in Fat Boy Slim’s "Praise You".
  • Rhythmic Stutter - patterns and waveforms to control the level of the voice to create tap tempo gating effects and more.
  • Rhythmic Gender applies randomized gender patterns, pushing the HardTune effect in vivid new directions.

Reverb and Delay Ducking

Increase the sustaining tail of your Reverb and Delay effects while carving out plenty of room for your lyrics with ducking. The level of the effects is reduced while you sing and then subtly increases after your last syllable. Of course, this is all automatic.

Create Your Sound

Individual stompbox footswitches for Harmony, Doubling, µMod, Reverb, Delay and FX give you the flexibility to layer or simplify at will. There’s also a Shortcut footswitch that can add Tap Tempo, Harmony vhold - and more. Each preset can have up to 50 steps, each containing a different preset or a simple modification of the main preset.
