TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 Extreme Overview
Achieve the perfect live production with the TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 Extreme. In addition to the amazing vocal effects, huge guitar tones, killer guitar effects, and multi-phrase looper found in the original VoiceLive 3, this Extreme upgrade features a backing track and effects automation function that lets you load songs from a standard USB key into VL3X. This allows you to rehearse at home or perform live using backing tracks including drums, rhythm sections, or even a full mix without vocals.
If you'e used to switching vocal and guitar effects on the fly, then you'e already off to a good start, but VoiceLive 3 Extreme goes further capturing all of the guitar and vocal effects changes that you make with the footswitches and plays them back in perfect synch with your backing track. Imagine lush, full harmonies dropping in at the chorus, or a boosted guitar tone for the guitar solo, and it all happens automatically, leaving you time to focus on your performance. The VoiceLive 3 Extreme also has four times the memory of the original VoiceLive 3 leaving you plenty of room to record your gig, load additional backing tracks, or store more of your loping creations. With VoiceLive 3 Extreme you can create, rehearse, and perform with a polished live sound.
