Absolute Performance Power
VOICELIVE 3 EXTREME sets you free to focus solely on your performance with groundbreaking FX automation and backing track playback. Awe-inspiring vocal effects and rich guitar sounds run effortlessly by themselves. From the first song idea to the execution of complex live arrangements, everything you’ve worked for comes together in VL3X.
Audience Connection Like Never Before
Every single detail you need to make your song exceptional – every FX change, every harmony, every loop –
every sonic nuance – can be prepared on VL3X before the show. This totally transforms your relationship to
the audience. (Oh, and did we say that you can do all of this for over 100 songs?)
Recording & Sharing Power
Your inspired backing tracks and FX sequencing are beautifully matched by the onboard audio recorder that allows you to capture everything you do in glorious 24-bit quality. Record every live performance, every home practice,
with professional studio fidelity and effects – both vocal and guitar. Turn your tour into EP material or your late night jams into SoundCloud gold.
Your Voice: Front & Center
With a mind-blowing vocal FX path featuring 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different pre-programmed styles and more than 250 factory presets available right out of the box (and more available for free download),
VL3X represents the absolute pinnacle of singers’ technology and is the perfect partner for your voice.
No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones
The guitar section of VL3X puts a premium stomp box collection at your feet – with rich tones from legendary FX makers TC ELECTRONIC – plus 30 amp emulations that can be customized far beyond belief. Together they make up an unbeatable piece of guitar road-kit.
Dedicated Vocal PA and Guitar Out
What makes VL3X an incredibly flexible performance system 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 – it even works when you’re looping.
Bootleg Your Own Show
Combining all this automation power with VL3X’s recording feature means that you’re always able to capture exactly what the audience hears on a USB key output. Not only is this a fantastic rehearsal tool, but you can also push “record” at the beginning of your show and have VL3X deliver your own “board mix” – perfect for your press kit, uploading to social media, combining with your video footage or duplicating for sale at the end of the show.
Singer-songwriter and product specialist, Stephanie Forryan shows exactly why automating your FX changes can be such a liberating experience. It allows you too focus solely on playing and singing while VL3X makes sure that everything comes off perfectly and professionally. Keep an eye on the lights/FX going on and off as Stephanie delivers her dark opus “Closer Than Before”. Recorded live directly from the VL3X outputs.
TC HELICON’s Most Comprehensive Vocal FX Suite
It’s all here: Doubling, Harmony, Echo, Reverb, HardTune, Flanger, Chopper, Choir and more. But it’s here with a difference: with upgrades, new modes and new harmony options. Watch Tom Lang show off what the VoiceLive 3 platform can do…
New Sounds and Styles
Expand your musical possibilities with exciting, new Harmony modes – Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed-Mode – There’s also an authentic Vocoder with voice-controlled polyphonic synth and robot modes so you can play your voice like an instrument. FX upgrades include new delay filters, new HardTune styles and better sounding doublings.
Personal Sound Engineer Included
Equipped with our trademark Adaptive Tone™, VL3X is your personal sound engineer providing the one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating, giving your voice the impact and presence to always stand out in the mix.
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 VL3X will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.
What can you change in the guitar and amp presets? Here’s an example: The Amp effect not only simulates physical amplifiers, but also provides controls for EQ, Gain, Tube/Transistor simulation and speaker emulation. The level of EQ control in the Amp block is huge, providing controls for both the pre-gain and post-gain stage parametric EQ – something that most real-world amplifiers don’t offer. We’re talking about crazy deep customization —same goes for all of the guitar effects. Don’t be ashamed of your sonic obsessions. They can all come true.
BodyRez for Acoustic Guitar
More of an acoustic player? VL3X will optimize the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with ground-breaking BodyRez™. Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the beautiful full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.
The Unbeatable Guitar Road Kit
The FX smorgasbord only starts with the TonePrint effects styles. If you’re a seeker of sounds, you’ll be blown away by the options. It’s loaded with great tone classics such as wah, octave, tremolo, and more. Did we mention that Guitar chords automatically guide vocal Harmony, HardTune, and Synth effects?
Guitar & Headphone Cable
VL3X comes with a specially designed combination Guitar & Headphone Cable too! This is a revelation if you use in ear headphones because it combines your guitar and headphone lines into one slim cable so you have ample freedom to move while you groove.
Create intricate songs and on-the-spot re-arrangements with the VoiceLive 3 platform’s powerful multi-looper. Just watch the awesome Selena Evangeline in action… We’ve packed VL3X with even more memory & storage than our already incredibly powerful VoiceLive 3 – hours of looping time and infinite overdubs let you create countless sets of songs – and store them for instant recall. Check out Tom Lang unpacking the meaning of looping power on the VoiceLive 3 platform…
The LoopAssist™ function helps you make tighter loops effortlessly. It does this through intelligently correcting your loop’s start and end points, or stretching loops of varying lengths to mesh everything together – a feature that goes way beyond many looping pedals.
Endless Styles & 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 VL3X will list the presets that match your preference — perfect for when you’re looking for that specific sound or need inspiration.
Hundreds of FX to Hit
There’s a whopping 250+ factory presets and on-board storage for 500. Download and manage hundreds more via our free VoiceSupport app. Chains of up to 10 FX changes can be added to each preset and accessed with the step button
Next Gen Power
Under the hood VL3X has three independent cores dedicated solely to vocals, guitar and looping. More memory and lightning fast access means double the processing power of our previous benchmark: VoiceLive 2.
VL3X is designed to empower you in performance, giving you easy access to presets and sounds while providing complete customization of footswitch functions and deep edit control. The LAYER button allows you to switch between the Vocal, Guitar or Looper/Backing track control layers. Each layer 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.
