"Many Voices, Working as One."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
This thing really rocks! The tracking of the chords from my guitar is really fast and usable. The harmonies sound quite natural, and I have the ability to blend them in the mix where they should be. I have recorded with it and I use it live. When recording, it is super easy to set the tempo of the delay to the song, and I can tweak in seconds to get the specific sound I want. I can pre-record the vocal line and then add the Voice Live 2 later to get exactly what I want, and doing that, I I can add layers of harmonies, and create female and male backgrounds. It doesn't sound like a whole bunch of just my voice doing overdubs.
Finally a good multi-effects for my vocals that rival my guitar effects. Having so many options on the fly, with dedicated buttons for Delay, Reverb, Harmonies, etc. it is easy to use and makes people's heads turn during live performances, like, "where did that sound come from?" and such.
Ease of Use:
Very easy to learn. I didn't use the manual for the first two days. I just cruised through and played with it. I was recording with it in the first hour.
The chassis is very sturdy, without weighing a ton.It has a built in handle so it is easy to carry. It feels very roadworthy, and has already made many trips between the club and the studio without and problems. I carry it in a computer bag with one of my Roland VG-99s.
For what the VoiceLive 2 does, it is worth more than it's price. It fills the tracks in the studio, and is very fast when I am trying to work out where harmonies and extra voices should be when writing songs.
The Wow Factor:
It is both a practical addition to my setup, and with all of the added sounds and textures I can create, has great appeal. It is fairly compact and fits amongst my other pedals and gizmos nicely.
This product has very good sound, and sounds quite natural. It should last a long time in my setup. It is also upgradeable as new updates are available from TC Helicon.
