The previous opinion, very comprehensive, very well describes the possibilities offered by this 3rd version of VoiceLive ... I would add:
VoiceLive this module is not reserved only for guitarists, although qu'orienté to them because of the presence of a true and very effective multi-effects. The speech processor and looper, merely two of them are worth seeing for other instrumentalists.
All vocal effects are no longer present, TC-Helicon has been for many years the leader in this type of processor. See what users think of the VoiceLive Series (2 rack, and others) ... add to that a more swift DSP and you'll get everything you might need to record, mix voices ... excellent.
The surprises of this 3rd version coming sections "guitar" and "looper".
Very demanding on the subject, I am convinced of the quality of services offered in these two areas in this unit. As discussed in previous reviews, the embedded multi-effects is not booked solid (no harmonizer, reverse-delay and some stuff yet) but the quality of treatment is the rendezvous. The amp models are excellent and presented in each section are numerous settings, sound, accurate, they would delight the pinailleur sounds No doubt the experience of TC-Electronic is present in 100% in this VoiceLive 3.
The looper is extremely well thought about him. It allows you to "mount" complete songs as simply having fun. The storage capacity is ample. I'm not talking about the quality of restitution ... TC-Helicon requires .
The firmware updates will bring, no doubt, new features and fixes ergonomics.
A word on the general editing functions: All settings are made on the module via a few buttons and a clear display of good size. Without being flawless, with a little practice, everything goes well and helps achieve his ends. We can do without a software editor ... But ... The power of the machine, its possibilities, its multitude of settings such as a lack editor soft in my opinion. TC-Helicon has chosen to design a hardware processor and permitting to configure everything. No editor development house. Fortunately, for those who have back pain, someone got down to the task!
(Voiceliveeditor.com). According to the developer, publisher VoiceLive 3 for PC will be released shortly, an OSX version will follow. It will crack a little extra ticket to purchase this software, it is regrettable that TC is not made in soft load, it is.
Connectivity, the set is almost complete. Routing options outputs (vocals, guitar, headphones, back) are numerous, well designed. Conspicuously absent is digital. Or audio via USB or SPDIF ... economy? deliberate choice? An upgraded version can be released with this connection.
In conclusion: The 3rd installment in the series is a success. Studio or Live, the beast is very effective! The price in relation to benefits is not so high that it (vocal multi-effects processor + + looper, all pro quality). I predict it successful sales.
