Overview

No matter if you're a seasoned professional singer, or if you're just at the start of your career, the VoiceLive Play from TC Helicon will deliver impacting results that will not only enhance your performance, it will boost your confidence level too. With a host of professional features like harmony and pitch correction, sing along, and a very useful practice mode, the VoiceLive Play will have you sounding your best in no time. The unit is compact in size compared to the other VoiceLive units, but it still packs the same power and professional results.

Sound like the pros
You can have instant and incredibly, intuitive access to vocal effects that come straight from our VoiceLive range. Featuring automatic backing harmonies, vocal double tracking, pristine EQ and compression, lush reverbs, hard-tuned robo-voice, the list goes on - all of the goose-bumps-on-your-arms effects that make today's billboard hit vocals "pop".

Perfect Harmonies & Correction
VoiceLive Play listens to your music. Using Auto Key technology it senses and adapts to your MP3 recordings using the aux input or the built in RoomSense microphones so that harmonies and pitch correction fit perfectly with your music.

Pick a Genre, any Genre
The Genre function is there to help you browse the massive palette of 200+ vocal presets in VoiceLive Play. Press the Genre button and search by music genre or effect type. If you've never used effects before, you'll quickly learn how to find the sound you're looking for using this method.

Make It a Hit
HIT is a performance-inspired feature for building intensity into any vocal performance. Every preset has a base level effect that you can build upon by pressing the HIT button that adds effects on top. For example, you could start with a simple reverb and tight doubling then select the "HIT" feature in the chorus to add harmonies and a megaphone - all from one preset.

Practice makes Perfect
Use PRACTICE to bring up an intelligent pitch display and your singing stats. Then you will be able to monitor your performance in real-time to see what notes you're hitting too sharp, and which ones you're coming up a bit flat on. As you improve, you'll notice your accuracy score getting better.

Sing Along
Plug in and practice using the Vocal Cancel function and your MP3 player. You can then record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer.

Loop Around
The VLOOP performance looper allows you to create a loop instantly, so you can have an astounding layered effect with the ability to turn effects on and off, creating a completely unique performance.

A Good Set of Ears
Embedded stereo RoomSense mics can control your harmonies from instruments nearby, replace the cabled mic for headphone practice or add a bit of room ambience to your headphone mix.

Adaptive Tone
TC-Helicon's adaptive tone technology intelligently controls Shape EQ and Dynamics (Compression & De-ess) to provide the perfect tonal balance and add smooth dynamic control to fit in any mix. Best of all it's easy - just set and forget. An adaptive gate can also be added to help suppress feedback and reduce bleed.

I am so amazed by this "Blue Wonder"! I am a 43yr old musician who started singing in earnest when I was 8 or 9yrs old and started wanting a guitar at about the same time. I wanted to believe that I was a good singer, but, I'm not. I have a few songs that I do pretty good, but, for the most I fall flat. Got my first guitar when I was 15yrs old and never looked back for the first 3 years of learning. I've come a long way after a lot of stop/start relations with music and thought I was going to be stuck doing mostly back up singing and learning someone else's style of singing. No more! I got my VoiceLive Play and started messing around with it today. I'm running it through my Phonic P.A. system that I also purchased through Musician's Friend and even the stock mic I got with my system sounds like a much higher-end version after being run through my VLP. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe the awesome potential behind this "blue marvel". First, I'll start by telling you this is a well built piece of technology. Judging by the weight I'd say aircraft aluminum. The foot switches are extremely quiet, smooth, heavy duty and well spaced. There are a total of 10 soft buttons and a rubberized infinate control knob. Everything is well placed and nothing seems like an after thought. I've bought and used a lot of pedals over these past 27yrs and recognize quality from qurap and this pedal quite simply could command twice the price due to excellent materials and workmanship alone. Then there's the sound. I'm shocked by the things that the VoiceLive Play is capable of and executes so well! I didn't bother with the instructions and ran through the presets. I can't believe that's me singing and the vocals now sound professional! I am so happy that I could play & sing and this room becomes filled with music that sounds good, even recorded. There are some voices for you to play around with and a few of them are over the top, but, amazingly they all sound pure and perfectly human and no lag times. Unless, you want to change ALL of your parameters. I can't wait for tomorrow when I'll experiment with creating new voicings and I need to see what voicings I can download! My ONLY complaint is that I have to send off for the free ME-75 microphone. It'll take 4-8 weeks to get it, but, it will be so worth having. I'll probably do a review on it. Lastly, if you have a wish to sound better when you sing then get the VoiceLive Play. This is the perfect Christmas present for anyone wanting the ultimate toolbox for thier vocals. T.C. Helicon VoiceLive Play ROCKS!!! PEACE

The buttons responded well at first but a few weeks later they did not. I liked the price and what it could do so I decided to exchange it for the same unit. Hopefully the one I get back will be trouble free. I do wish the instructions were more of a booklet or manual versus a pamphlet.

    Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

    I produce for a variety of artists and genres and this device covers them all. At an extremely competitive price and with a host of wonderful effects and combinations, an apt producer should be able to make their dreams a reality with this piece of equipment. Setting this up with a XLR-Splitter to create both Dry Vocals into one track and Wet Vocals into another is an ideal way to layer your vocals. This is the solution for pushing the artist you work with over the edge, and create a unique sound that others can listen to.

    I love it.

      Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

      This unit very much exceeded expectations. I had previously tried the Boss VE-1, which was wretched. Terrible sound.

      As with most digital units, just wipe the factory presets. It isn't worth the trouble slogging through them unless you're doing a Kanye tribute band.

      I was able to create a basic vocal preset with a bit of reverb and a high harmony controlled by the Hit button. It sounded terrific. At the first rehearsal, my bandmates had lots of positive comments. Even if you don't use a lot of the effects, the unit does a great job of framing the vocal so that it sits better in the mix.

      Not compatible with my Passport 500 PA System.

        Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

        I was sold this product utilizing head phones for the output - the sound was good. Taking my purchase home, I realized that I was having problems integrating this voicelive product with PA System (I have 2). Compatibility! Reading the manual, I was instructed to turn volume down on PA Systems. Once my volume was down on the PA Systems, this product sounded like a child's toy. To make this product useable, I would have to add another mixer, separate speakers and an amplifier/power. This would make me have another not needed PA Systems. I will give this to my 13 year old.

        How disappointed I am as a customer! My satisfaction is zero!

        Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

        If you are a professional singer and or musician who wants or needs a vocal processor look else where. This is little more than a toy. Try the Live 2 or 3 or for that matter the Boss VE20 (still limited but more functional than this thing). TC Helicon makes some great products this just isn't one of them.

          Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

          This is a great vocal pedal, and I've tried several. The effects are solid, but when the harmonies are set right they're incredible. Two weaknesses that kept me from giving it a 5 star review.
          1) The Harmony pedal (the only one you actually use mid-song) is also the bypass pedal. If you tap it the harmonies turn on. If you hold it down for 1second (!?!) it bypasses all the effects and harmonies. While I understand wanting to bypass the effects inbetween songs, 1 second is WAY too short of a time to switch. I often hit it slightly too long and find my vocals dry, without harmonies, and way quieter than I should be. That's a design flaw.
          2) You can only set the key of a patch to major keys. It has trouble with minor keys. And while you can usually use a corresponding major key to fit most minor key songs, there are sometimes it won't work, nor does the internal mic accurately pick up the key of whatever your'e playing.

          I have found ways to work around these limitations and hope to upgrade to a newer, nicer version in the near future.

          Great sounding, well made product.
          Easy to use once you learn how to use it! But the manual really sucks! The languages need to be separated & much better laid out for new users...
          I was able to go to YouTube to get 'schooled' without getting frustrated and sending it back!

            Comments about TC Helicon VoiceLive Play:

            There are many positive reviews written about this vocal pedal and good reason....it really does help you sound professional plus gives you more confidence on singing whatever types of songs you have the ability to sing. If you can't sing in tune then don't expect miracles but it still will make your voice sound better in quality. I also have the Voicetone Harmony GXT pedal I purchased a couple years ago and really like it too and in ways better because I use my acoustic guitar that plugs directly into it and really helps mix the harmonies better I think than the Voicelive Play. Both are great effect boxes and both have their strong points but I feel this pedal would best be used recording or mixing with as apposed to live playing. This is easy to operate and you should watch the videos on YouTube over and over and study it. You will get better on tweaking certain effects and using the USB port and connecting to VoiceLive on the Internet to download more effects and to save the ones you have. Backups are great to have for obvious reasons. If you play just acoustic guitar and sing solo I think though however you might prefer the GTX over this one. It too is easy to use plus even though more basic the effects are good plus the harmonies are better.
