« 3 Voicelive ideal guitarists singers motivated by a project »

Device fully digital high class.
Multiple connections, but MORE DIGITAL!
it will "not be", they are not on at TC.
The SP.Dif I miss a lot, because it is necessary to connect not less than 4 cables, or through the headphone output (Mini-jack very average)
Effects available: too many to mention, see: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.tc-helicon.com/products/voicelive-3/tech-specs/" target="_blank">http://www.tc-helicon.com/products/voicelive-3/tech-specs/</a>
To voice the same categories as 2 plus a vocoder, and a few things, the effects of each class far more types of algorithms.
For the guitar, all the effects a sharp guitarist needs, with good surprises
(Multiple types of modulations) and one or two not so good: OBLIVION a PHASING, while 4 or 5 types of flanger and chorus are offered 5), an error which I think will be fixed in next update, NO REVERSE DELAY then we must have 10 kinds of delay has available, can be as a harmonizer of next update.PAS INTELLIGENT.Moi it does not bother me trop.On can transpose with the octave, but no effect " whammy "with a pedal (It will be on a future release.
No editor on computer, it is not the concept of the device. I thought it was funny, but ultimately, it&#39;s great, editing is done as if it were live long.
Finally a word on the microphone:
I have a KMS 105 neuman, a Seinheiser E835 and E935.Sans disputes the Neuman is better, but it can be hard to use given the width of capture, even if li is hypercardioid.
THE E seinheiser 835 is good, but not ... UNTOP microphone.
Remains the E935 that I use and seems fashionable, and the sound is very consistent with VoiceLive 3.Evidement it is expensive, but the sound has nothing to do with the E835.
After that, there are hundreds of micro, then ... at 935 but less than 835 cases, but more standard and can be difficult to use the 935.
A hyper cardioid, apart from the Neuman seems limited for a singer and guitarist who moves may be a little surprised by the volume declines nuisance due to its position in relation to his guitar and micro.Long I think about .. ..

UTILIZATION

Setup is simple to edit an effect on or see the guitar.
When it comes to organizing to make "step" (multiple changes in a preset), it must be used. When the looper, it is the second that I have (I had a rc 50 Roland, or was easy)
is simplified to the work directly, but requires several days or weeks before going on stage, and not change anything.
I recommend buying the Switch 3 that really changes nothing, the apparatus being really designed to operate autonomously. (Or you play as Robert Fripp sitting!)
The manual is really like came from another world: how to propose that the use of such a huge machine that you would learn in a way minnimun little serious!..
No details on the effects, amp models, not yet written Francais.Il should be 500 pages and in fact a hundred.
!! Warning! galley at this level for non-English speakers.
The output is provided in french, but it will take a much more detailed manual.
I&#39;m used machinery, and, I must say that I spend time.
No explanation or pattern on the signal path, which would be necessary given the extent of capacity of the machine.
Make no mistake: the wrong note is due to this very insufisant manual, and even not yet translated, this means that if you do not speak English, do all to the ear Otherwise, the edition of the sounds is easy. and ergonomics with the steps, the hit, and button remapping is really a rare intelligence.

SOUND QUALITY

Effects, nothing to say quality standpoint, on the other hand as I said above, some parameters will seem mystical, given the poverty of the manual, it&#39;s really not nice to bring to market a device with so little information.)
vocal effects: Really nothing dire.j I have the impression that the band is a bit more metallic than the VoiceLive 2, but I used the 2 S-PDIF, so no conversion, with an RME ADI 192 DD gives a sound or no digital sensation is heard.
The obliged to tap into my DIGI 003, and it is unlikely to be the différence.A see ... on stage!
whatever happens, we change the character of a little harmony, and no worries!
The vocoder is great (I had bought a Voice Synth for having with VoiceLive 2) and I must say that this is really the height compared to my old hardware. + + + + +!
Everything is fine, nothing to say, and my story metal side, I do not trust, I will surely a Rectified later when I&#39;ll really well tested.
Guitar effects: I do not understand all the drive acting on the volume of the amp, short, incomplete yet the damn manual!
In any case the simulations are very nice, very playable, with the boost, you can saturate a clear sound without changing universe, and ca is bien.On bit as well play with the guitar volume to go from clear the saturé.Je am more than surprised at the musicality of this section.
I have a preference for clean sounds, but have so many parameters that I do not say encore.J &#39;have compared with my Eleven Rack, and saturated sounds have need to be a little in the bass for an equivalent result (on saturated sounds). Most amps are typed, and the saturated, we must be careful not to end up on stage with sounds from the form of the court. (But this is a problem that all amp simulators may be) . The clean sounds are very easy result, whatever well-typed.
I must say that for now, I use a lot VoiceLive 3With my Telecaster or my Strato.
I work with my Lespaul sounds and begins to find.
For Jazz and acoustic guitar is a direct pleasure.
The looper: I&#39;m not expert, but do not understand tout.Apparement, the processed signal which is recorded as aivoulu I make a loop with arpeggios in a long reverb, and reverb to the endnotes is cut every time the loop is restarted.
There are the parameter, but no explanation in the manual, and it&#39;s a bit obscur.Peut it will be good to have the option to save a source in dry and apply the current effect the preset? I can not speak yet, not yet very seasoned in this function.

OVERALL OPINION

Finally, the least:
No delay or reverse phasing,
no digital output,
Headphone mini jack (I do not like it!)
usb mini USB (I do not like it!)
looper should see a few options in addition to the signal source.
I work on this instrument for 10 days I am a musician intensive business guitarist singer, and I have plans and only a trio.
I bought this unit as having a multi-effects guitar + a VoiceLive 2 + the + big Voicesynth vocoder looper, as I said earlier, I would have had to be sitting on a swivel chair with a cane and more a third foot.
So I decided to sell everything to have only this little device and do a concert watching the people and not the footswitch.
The challenge does not seem feasible with a very substantial work program.
VU opportunities remaping the switch, the colors change, and intelligence functions change sounds shipments loops, steps for radical changes in the blink of an eye, this product can change lives, but better plan a stay in a cottage on Mount Lozère to best utilize this beautiful unique tool of its kind.
I have only very little about the looper, because I am full dedans.Il seems designed intelligently to me a great intuitive, but it will acquire many controls for direct.
To send a sentence already made, nothing more simple.
After two or three update, it&#39;ll be an almost perfect device
Value: it&#39;s cheap if you sell your VoiceLive 2, your vocoder, your guitar multi effects, you can buy the 3 live voice!.
Now this unit is dedicated PEOPLE WHO NEED! This is a bias to make this purchase, and once purchased, the rear machine is dificult!
To conclude, it must be a very precise optical work, which is mainly related to the stage because this is where VoiceLive 3 is unbeatable .... once well in hand,
