TC-Helicon tell us that VoiceLive 2, their floor-based vocal processor, raises the bar
even higher with a software update that adds more power, more features and
more flexibility. Here's all the details from them...
VoiceLive 2 is already used by vocalists the world over to deliver jaw-dropping vocal
performances. And while this compact floor-standing vocal processor has already
won over legions of fans with its instant harmonies, reverbs, delays, modulation FX
and more, the latest Version 1.2 software update puts even more vocal processing
power at your feet.
VoiceLive 2 has already earned its place as the top vocal processor for many of the
world's best vocalists. Ease of use combine with superb multi-fx and detailed tonecorrecting
and harmony algorithms to deliver perfect vocals, no matter what the style
Now the Version 1.2 software update takes VoiceLive 2's already impressive feature
set and adds a wealth of new features, including Rhythmic effects, greatly improved
lead voice latency as well as dozens of smaller improvements that have been
suggested by VoiceLive 2 users via blog.tc-helicon.com and the voicecouncil.com
forum. With these online resources it's never been easier to stay in contact with other
singers who use VoiceLive 2. The new features include:
A new series of tempo effects called Rhythmic. These effects include Rhythmic
Stutter, Sample and Gender effects. Each of these effects can be controlled via preprogrammed
rhythms and tap or MIDI tempo.
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 allows patterns and waveforms to control the level of the voice, so
creating instant dynamic gating effects and more.
Rhythmic Gender applies patterns to random gender settings, so pushing the
HardTune effect in vivid new directions.
New user-requested controls. New controls have been added, including Lead
Level (in preset and global), guitar phase, global setting that forces the Harmony
footswitch to act momentarily, gender control for Doubling voices.
New 'DUAL' output mode where the wet vocal signal is on the left output and the
wet guitar signal is on the right output. In this way the live engineer can use sends for
both guitar and voice effects to VoiceLive 2 and set the effects mix on their mixing
Current preset is remembered on power-down.
Lead voice latency has been reduced to a near imperceptible amount.
Addition of more expression pedal parameters (as requested by VoiceLive 2 users).
Easy access to Tap Tempo â€“ simply push and hold Delay button.
