Imagine the perfect sound engineer taking your vocals to awe-inspiring heights. Imagine the rich tones of a premium stomp box collection. Imagine a songwriting tool setting your creativity on fire, both when writing and performing. Now stop imagining. With VoiceLive 3 you get the ultimate 3-in-1 professional performance system for vocals, guitar and phrase looping - and it will rock your world! The VoiceLive was revolutionary when it debuted, and with this its second rethinking, the design has been expanded in terms of features and streamlined in terms of usability.

- A complete vocal sound with next generation harmony processing, effects and tonal quality.
- TC Electronic stomp box effects, Amp Tones and dedicated stereo amp outputs to integrate fully with your guitar rig.
- Powerful 3-phrase looping lets you create and store entire songs on-the-fly.

Your voice, front and center
Vocals are what we live for, and VoiceLive 3 is a true labor of love. With a mind-blowing vocal effects path more comprehensive than anything created before - featuring 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different styles, and more than 200 factory presets available right out of the box (and 1000+ more available for free download) - VoiceLive 3 represents the absolute pinnacle of singer's technology and the perfect partner for your voice.

- NEW! Exciting new Harmony modes - Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed-Mode - for expanded voicing and musical possibilities.
- NEW! Authentic Vocoder with voice-controlled polyphonic synth and robot modes allow you play your voice like an instrument.
- Automatically and professionally produced vocal sound with enhanced Adaptive Tone.
- Improved suite of our renowned vocal effects, e.g. Doubling, Harmony, Echo, Reverb, HardTune, Flanger, Chopper, Choir, and more. Upgrades include new delay filters, new HardTune styles, better sounding doublings and even more realistic harmonies.
- 200+ factory presets, with onboard storage for 500 presets in total. Download and manage more presets via our free VoiceSupport app.

No-compromise Guitar FX and AmpTones
Our sister company is legendary guitar FX maker, TC Electronic, and by including some of the most popular sounds from their TonePrint pedals like Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus, and Vortex Flanger we've designed the Guitar section of VoiceLive 3 to rival even the most pristine pedal boards. Add to that the full gamut of great tone classics such as wah, octave, tremolo, and drive, and you've got an unbeatable guitar road kit.
- TC Electronic TonePrint FX styles from Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus and others.
- New Talk box, Chopper, Bass, Wah, and Drive guitar effects.
- A wide choice of amp emulations from vintage British to classic American, when bringing your own amp isn't practical.
- Acoustic Mode allows for quick set up of VoiceLive 3 for acoustic guitar.
- Guitar chords automatically guide vocal Harmony, HardTune, Synth and Vocoder effects.

Dedicated vocal PA and Guitar Out
What makes VoiceLive 3 stand out is the dedicated stereo vocal and stereo guitar amp outputs. Send your guitar sound directly to your favorite amp, completely independent of the vocal output going to the PA. The killer feature is that this also works if you're looping; the stereo vocal loops go to the PA while the stereo guitar loops go separately to the amps.

Building better songs with loops
VoiceLive 3's looping focuses allows you to experiment with real-time song creation or exciting loop jams. Arrange and re-arrange backing tracks with flexible verse-chorus-bridge switching. The LoopAssist function helps you make tighter loops effortlessly and auto-expands loops to allow different lengths. 45 minutes of looping time and infinite overdubs let you create entire sets of songs - and store them for instant recall.
- Powerful multi-track looper with intuitive control layout and infinite overdubs.
- 3 phrase looping with 4 selectable layering and serial techniques help you create intricate songs and on-the-spot re-arrangements.
- LoopAssist with multi-purpose metronome and quantize for perfectly synced loops.
- Auto expansion of loop length allows you to create long loops on top of short ones, and vice versa, without having to set up timing beforehand.
- Loops can be stored onboard and recalled together with presets.

Next-generation 3iC power platform
While the form factor of VoiceLive 3 continues the tradition for VoiceLive 2 and VoiceLive Rack, look under the hood and you'll discover an entirely different kind of beast. Sporting our new 3iC processing, VoiceLive 3 features cutting-edge hardware with 3 independent cores dedicated solely to vocals, guitar and looping. Match these with increased memory and lightning fast access and you're looking at more than double the processing power of our previous benchmark, VoiceLive 2.

Portable command center
We spent a lot of time figuring out the most effective I/O options to make VoiceLive 3 a flexible and extremely portable command center for your performance. On top of dedicated stereo PA and Guitar outputs you get separate monitor and headphone mix outputs, with a monitor mix input. Also included are our RoomSense microphones for controlling harmony and adding ambience to your monitor mix, as well as two control inputs for expression pedals or Switch-3.

- 4-channel stereo outputs with dedicated vocal and guitar channels.
- Independent headphone and monitor mix.- Combo Jack for Main inputs and automatic input/output sensing.
- Monitor mix input and pass-through to other monitors.

Total performance control
VoiceLive 3 is designed to empower you and your performance, giving you easy access to presets, sounds and switching between them, while providing complete customization of switch functions and deep edit control. Use the LAYER button to change between the vocals, guitar and loop control layers. Each mode gives you instant access to layer-specific functions via the footswitches, with the LCD display showing a clear view of which footswitch controls what effect.

- Consistent 3-layer UI philosophy. Vocals, Guitar and Looping each have their own 6-button layout.
- Stompbox-style access to individual effects and loop controls.
- LCD display shows current footswitch labels.
- Complete customization of footswitch assignments across layers to suit your personal style and requirements.

Guitar & Heaphone Cable
VoiceLive 3 comes with a specially designed combination guitar & headphone cable that facilitates in-ear monitoring and allows you to practice without an amp - and gives you ample freedom to move while you rock out.

But wait¦ there's more!
VoiceLive 3 literally has hundreds of additional features to make you stand out as a singer, guitar player and performer. And if you're upgrading from VoiceLive 2, there are dozens of new functions to discover and an army of upgrades and improvements.

Endless styles and genres
The GENRE feature allows you to easily browse hundreds of presets by style, effects type and artists. Choose a genre that suits you and VoiceLive 3 will list the presets that fit your preference. Perfect for when you're looking for that specific sound or need inspiration for your next song.

Make it a HIT
The HIT button turns on multiple effects at once to add effect layers or to create quick A/B scenes for each preset. Use it to add dazzling vocal effects for the chorus, or strip down a guitar part for the verse, or even a combination of both vocal and guitar effects changes - you decide!

Get loud, no clipping
The automatic Mic Gain feature takes the guesswork out of setting your input level properly. Simply sing your loudest into the mic and VoiceLive 3 will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.

Control it from your mic
Add remote Mic Control with the TC-Helicon MP-75 or Sennheiser e 835 fx microphones for additional control of presets, performance, effects and looping while you're performing.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 3:

    I bought one of these for my Home studio and have loved it. Being new to the electric guitar i don't even own a pedal. I use my voice live instead. Gives me so many choices. I wish it had a recall/previous select feature (it may be in there and i just haven't discovered it yet). All in all I love to spend hours and hours messing with the different effects that i can control for my guitar and my vocals.

    VERY User Friendly

    By Daniel

    from Long Beach, CA

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 3:

    Purchased this VL3 from Guitar Center about 2 weeks ago. Never had a TC Helicon product before. In fact this is the first pedal/effects box I ever owned. Sure there is a steeper learning curve for me, so I knew I was going to have to invest more than 30 minutes "torturing myself" into learning it. What I found out is this company put a lot of thought and effort into this box, and as a result made it very intuitive (read EASY to learn). No torture, but one hell of a lot of fun! There is so much the VL3 is capable of doing that I don't even know about yet. But what I have learned and accomplished so far has expanded my musical horizons beyond my expectations. Looking at some of the YouTube videos made by others who are using the VL3 have made me realize there are many wonderful paths to explore with this unit. I honestly believe if you think of this box as an extension of your guitar/keyboard or whatever it is you play, you will have a great learning experience. If I could give the VL3 a higher rating than 5 I would. It is disappointing to see others have failed at minimal effort, and then took their failure out on an excellent product.

    NOT user friendly

    By alex petakovich

    from San Diego, Ca

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 3:

    First off, I'm a HUGE TC Electronic/Helicon fan! I use several of their individual pedals and think they make amazing stuff! Now the bad news... The learning curve on this thing SUCKS!!!! I was extremely frustrated and tortured myself for 30 minutes trying to figure out how to get the guitar effects to work. Never succeeded in doing that at all and this pedal made me feel very stupid. I consider myself a VERY tech savy guy and this was very, very, very hard to understand how to use so I gave up. Unless you're already familiar with the first two versions of this pedal (I'm not), prepare yourself for a lot of frustration. Unfortunately, I'll be sticking with stomp boxes and returning this to the store. Very bummed because I was really looking forward to taking my live performance to the next level. I really hope TC reads this because they need to stop making "all in one" pedals for people who only have NASA degrees. I'll give you the perfect example of a company who hit a home run with a very easy to use but VERY advanced product. The Line6 StageScape Mixer. The mixer is fully digital and works completely different than any other mixer in the world. Regardless of that, I mastered the use of the Line6 mixer within 15 minutes and learned how to access every part of it without reading a single word of the manual. TC should get one and copy how user friendly it is!! Lastly... having only 45 minutes of stored loops is NOTHING if you're a full time musician who plays 7 days a week and has over 500 songs in his/her catalogue. Really shocked they didn't add an SD card slot so you could have an endless amount of loops. They dropped the ball on that more than anything else. Well... that and the fact that I couldn't get it to work AT ALL. So disappointed =((

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 3:

    I received my VoiceLive 3 and have used it for about a week now - one word - incredible! Very easy to operate and the presets are just awesome. I've tweaked a few, and editing is a snap with this thing. Design is spot on! I sold my Roland GR 55 and Boss ME 70 as the VoiceLive 3 sounds perfect with my Gibson SG and my acoustic guitar. Most of the gear I've bought never really measured up to all the hype and advertisement claims, but this processor does that - and more. I'm much more than just pleased with the purchase. I did have a question about replicating a guitar preset to combine with a vocal preset. The TC Helicon support staff was right on target and answered my email within an hour with a solution!! And, as always, great service from Guitar Center and it was shipped the same day.

    Game Changer!!!

    By Robert Roy

    from Rindge,NH

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive 3:

    I am a Singer/Songwriter/Performer. I play both Electric and Acoustic Guitars and Sing Live and in Studio. I've owned both the Voicelive 1 & 2. Great Vocal enhancement pedals, with stellar Harmonies, The 3rd Version is all NEW under the Hood as not only Great Vocal Studio Quality Effects, But Now Guitar effects and Vocoder and Synth effects!!!! I used to lug around my large pedal board, with my Voicelive 2 , my Roland Guitar synth and pickup, Guitar Amps,stompboxes, etc to get what I can get out of this new Voicelive 3, and More!!!! The Looper is incredible and you can map any effect or multiple effects to any foot switch! TC Helicon Listened to it's customers and Gave them even More!!! Also what a great thing of them to do to offer a free Gigbag and MP75 Microphone (limited time) promotion!:) I feel this New Voicelive3 will pay for itself after just a few performances!~ Awesome Stuff!
