VoiceLive Touch 2 Now Available


TC-Helicon has been in touch to tell us that the successor to the original VoiceLive Touch vocal processor, VoiceLive Touch 2 - Vocal Designer & Looper, is now available in stores across Europe. Here's their press release with all the details:


Since its release in 2010 the original VoiceLive Touch has taken singers by storm, setting the bar for live vocal performance tech. Now, the next generation of Touch - VoiceLive Touch 2 - with its completely reworked user interface, unique real-time control and new effects makes its way to the European vocalists.

In A Nutshell
VoiceLive Touch 2 provides a complete suite of production-quality vocal effects, including Harmony. Its revolutionary new Touch Matrix interface with Slider FX™ allows precise real-time control and modulation, and the VLOOP™ Performance Looper adds exciting loop-specific effects to the mix.

The Effects
VoiceLive Touch 2 automatically takes care of vocal tone with adaptive EQ, compression, de-essing and gating. This frees the singer up to focus on the performance with hyperactive slaps and echoes, aggressive distortion and Hardtune in addition to sweetening effects like deep reverb, doubling and those uncanny TC-Helicon vocal harmonies.

  • Adaptive Tone – compression, EQ shaping and de-essing
  • Rhythmic effect creates Stutter and Chopper effects
  • From natural Pitch Correction to the infamous HardTune effect
  • Perfect Harmonies, reverbs, delays, doubling and more, much more


The User Interface
The new and large 2.5" LCD display helps build an easy-to-grasp visual image of the effects layout - and makes editing a cinch.

The Touch Matrix buttons allows one to explore adding and removing effects and tonal colors seamlessly while singing. Use the slider bar to rock, flutter and transform the sonic landscape. Each preset also has the Hit button ready to launch multiple effects with a single touch.

  • Create dramatic new sweep effects, browse presets and adjust levels with the slider
  • Jump between 36 performance functions fast in the Touch Matrix
  • Easy icon-based editing with deep editing available when needed


Looping
VoiceLive Touch 2's six-track looper offers lots of loop time and LoopAssist™ for better loops and effects like a resonant filter, stutter effect,  and reverse to make one-person creations easy, unique and incredible.

  • Stereo looping of all inputs plus effects on up to 6 tracks
  • LoopAssist offers metronome and quantize for perfect loops every time
  • Loop effects include Reverse, Filter, Slow Speed, Squeeze and Squeeze Auto


In short, VoiceLive Touch 2 gives singers unprecedented creative control of their live sound with state-of-the-art vocal effects and performance looping in an intuitive touch layout. A major update of the original, VoiceLive Touch 2 gives singers even more opportunities to hone their instrument, create new sounds, and move the masses.
