TC-Helicon have announced VoiceLive Touch which they describe as the first vocal processor and looper at your fingertips. Here's what they have to say about it...
VoiceLive Touch is the first vocal processor to feature an ingenuously integrated mic stand mount and interface. Now every vocalist can take control of their sound, no matter where they are...
TC-Helicon's VoiceLive Touch is a 'go anywhere' vocal processor that delivers premium quality vocal effects and VLOOPâ„¢, an incredible performance vocal looper. This vocal processing power sits behind one of the most innovative user interfaces ever created. And thanks to the ingenuously integrated mic stand mount , VoiceLive Touch is also the first vocal processor to sit precisely where it's needed for total hands-on control â€“ actually on the mic stand. Sounds
After setting the world alight with VoiceLive 2 â€“ a vocal multi-effects pedal that has become a best seller around the world â€“ TC-Helicon looks set to do it again with VoiceLive Touch, a brand new vocal effects and performance product. With the same modern and classic award-winning effects as VoiceLive 2, it already ticks all the right boxes, but it's also the addictively simple interface and design and VLOOP performance vocal looper that sets VoiceLive Touch apart from anything else out there. Interface and design
With VoiceLive Touch's innovative 'touch' interface sounds can be changed in an instant with a tap or swipe of the smooth surface preset slider â€“ in fact nothing could be simpler to use. Search by genre through hundreds of sounds or assemble a whole song with your voice by creating loops. It's Touch by name and touch by nature as VoiceLive Touch soon becomes an addictive and creative instrument in its own right â€“ vocalists will simply not be able to keep their hands off it! VLOOP
With VLOOP VoiceLive Touch is the easiest looper for both singers and guitarists, putting the controls at their fingertips or on the floor with the optional Switch-3 footswitch. Get rapid access to common loop features such as overdub, undo, and multiply. Tap into the performance looping modes and you can create up to 25 separate loops with instant undo/redo, single shot mode and more. It's amazing what 30 seconds of stereo looping with effects can do to get your creativity onto the stage.
VoiceLive Touch uses the same effects engine as the best-selling VoiceLive 2 so it contains every conceivable effect a vocalist could wish for â€“ and many more besides. Want to recreate that famous effect from a favorite song? No problem. Users can quickly store their custom sounds in one of the 25 easily accessible 'favorite' slots for easy recall. VoiceLive Touch also has the same 'intelligent' features found on VoiceLive 2, like Adaptive Tone and NaturalPlay Harmony that simply let you get on with the business of making great music.
VoiceLive Touch really is the first vocal effects unit designed for every singer. They can easily mount VoiceLive Touch on their mic stands, while keyboard vocalists can mount it next to their keyboards. Guitarists can add the optional Switch-3 for combined foot pedal and touch control, and computer musicians can place it on their desktops. Basically, wherever you use your voice, VoiceLive Touch is designed to be ready for you. Features:
