Now the singer gets to stomp on something
VoiceLive is the latest addition to the TC-Helicon family of high-end voice processing products. At the entrance to Hall 5, there were some ear-catching demos by a couple of great singers illustrating it's capabilities to an eager audience.
VoiceLive is a floor processor aimed at musicians who want complete control of their vocal sound on stage. That sound includes EQ, Compression, pitch correction, natural harmony and vocal effects.
"The need for a product like VoiceLive is clear," says TC-Helicon CEO, Kevin Alexander, "Performing musicians spend precious time and money selecting the right products to control and enhance their live sound. Even though vocals are respected as the key to a great performance, there has never been a product for singers that put them in control of their vocals on stage."
The design challenge for VoiceLive was finding the ultimate combination of vocal processing, effortless control and built for the road construction. With the introduction of VoiceLive, TC-Helicon has opened the door for studio quality vocals on stage.
VoiceLive contains all the tools necessary for creating complete and perfect vocals; all easily accessible during live performances. The EQ, compression, delay and reverb algorithms come from TC Electronic and feature their renowned effects quality. VoiceLive also contains the best harmony, correction and doubling algorithms from TC-Heliconï¿¢ï¾€ï¾™s acclaimed studio rack mount vocal processor, VoiceWorks.
Live control of all internal processing is simplified through eight footswitches, various switch-modes and an optional expression pedal.
VoiceLive's input and output architecture is designed with a range of stage setups in mind. Solo artists benefit from an instrument input for effects and mixing straight to their PA. Live sound engineers will appreciate the hard-wired mic thru output for Front of House control and redundancy. VoiceLive is also equipped with a studio-quality mic preamp, 48V phantom power and a voice optimized soft Limiter (VOS).
To ensure the integrity of your vocal performance, VoiceLive is assembled with rugged components. The bottom plate is constructed using a powder-coated steel-plate with anti-skid rubber matting. The buttons and data knobs are recessed and reinforced with double aluminium construction, and rear mounted die-cast steel handles protect your cables and make it easy to carry.
VoiceLive will be available in May 2004 at EUR 840 retail ex. VAT/GBP 579 RRP.
