Become a vocal designer

Creating a personal and powerful performance is all about finding your sound, and nothing puts you in the driver’s seat like VoiceLive Touch 2.

Delay

Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats.

Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

For more information on the technical aspects of reverb, see: Wikipedia Delay

Reverb

Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom.

Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

Harmony

Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers.

Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

For more information on harmony and musical theory, check out: Wikipedia Harmony

Our scale chart, showing harmony notes created from an input note, can be found here: TC-H Harmony Chart

Double

Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix.

It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

Transducer

Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here.

Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.

Rythm

Remember Max Headroom from the 80’s with his stutter-y, jerky speech patterns? That’s the kind of effect you can re-create with the Rhythmic effect. You can chop and cut your voice to create very interesting patterns and repeats.

There’s also a sampler available to take a tiny slice of vocals and put it through the wringer.

Rhythmic is the kind of effect that, when used sparingly, can have a huge wow factor in a performance.

HardTune

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it Hard Tune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way.

The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable.

To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Create up to four part harmonies instantly. Don’t worry about setting the key - Touch 2 can listen to the chords from MIDI, from your room using its RoomSense mics, or plug in a guitar. Customize your sound from realistic 3rd above to synthetic multi voice choirs.

ARTISTIC PEDIGREE

A strong artist community helped us develop VoiceLive 2 - like international rising star Kimbra who helped define touch 2’s MIDI abilities for use with real time controllers. A true power user, watch her seamlessly weave 8 different vocal effects into her live performance of "Love In High Places".

Practice favorite tracks with vocal cancel

Singing along is a great way to practice and perform. Plug in your MP3 player via the AUX In connector and use the Vocal Cancel feature to make your voice stand out over the vocals on the original track. Record and play back your singing using the USB connection to your computer and DAW.
