    Can I use my electric guitar with my VL play acoustic? I wonder about input impedance and such. Also, I'd like a separate output for guitar and voice. Looks like I'd have to go from a Microphone plug to a 1/4 male to get to a guitar amp.

      Hi @chucklaiti ,


      Play Acoustic isn't ideal for electric because of the xlr outputs, you may want to see if you can find one of the older units like a Play Electric or Play GTX if your main goal is to use Electric guitar. The Voicelive 3 is the ideal choice for electric guitar and vocals, but is larger/more expensive. I'm not sure if impedence would be an issue... you should be able to decrease the guitar gain enough that the Play Acoustic outputs won't be too loud into your amp.

    Real longshot since it is an old product... But I just found out that the Shortcut footswitch doesn't seem to send or receive Midi CC. This is a big bummer since there are some functions that are not controllable with Midi CC but still possible to assign to the Shortcut switch. The loop sample for example.

    Any idea why TC Helicon decided to leave out this function in their midi implementation? It would be super convenient for those of us who uses the Voicelive with our other gear, and not with our feet.

    Is there perhaps a workaround to reach the loop sample function with something that actually is midi CC controllable?

    Anyone know if this function even exists on Voicelive 3?

     When I plug one XLR cable from the left VLP output into an Acoustic A20 amp the performance is not great (the indicator light does not register like it does when i am using headphones, the effects dont sound right, etc.) Does that mean I have to use 2 XLR cables for both right and left? Any advice here whould be much appreciated.

      If you want to play both vocals and guitar with the Acoustic A20 and only want to use one XLR cable, set VoiceLive Play to Mono mode (SETUP - Output -> Mono) and use the left XLR output of VoiceLive Play.

      Sorry, I may have misunderstood. Exactly which TC-Helicon device do you use, do you have an instrument and what is it plugged into?

    No mention in either the reference or quick start guide.

    The manuals call out using the USB ports for upgrade, audio transfers and flash storage, but do not make any distinction between the USB A and mini-B ports as to which do what.  

    Can either port be used for all functions?

      The full size USB A is for saving and loading loops. The mini USB is for connecting to the computer for updates,USB audio/midi etc.

    So I've just started using my voicelive play after purchasing brand new a while ago.  Used it for about an hour, was just getting to know it, and I was called away.   I shut everything down to return, power up and find nothing but a blue screen.  Internet searching revealed a firmware update for a voicelive touch 2, but I'm not sure if that would fix my problem.  Description of the problem sounded the same, but I'm not sure.   Any suggestions anyone?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get a uk 3 pin slot in piece for the "Powerplug 12 " 12v adaptor ?

     

    When I bought my VL3 it came with a euro 2 pin plug, so i bought a Uk adaptor off amazon.

    But I've just found the original adaptor while looking through some leads, and I thought to myself "If I could just get the Uk adaptor 3 pin slot-in part, then I could use that again."

    1. Can the mono XLR OUT and the pair of stereo TRS OUTs be used as outputs at the same time ?    No harm to the system ?
    2. Is there any difference in LEVEL between the mono XLR OUT and the pair of stereo TRS OUTs ?

      Hi @QT ,


      The xlr and the trs outs are always simultaneous, you can use them at the same time. There is a bit more volume on the xlr output than on the trs outputs becuase it would normally be plugged in to a mic channel rather than a line input channel on a mixer.

    Using the Switch 3/6, is there anyway to play loops A & B simultaneously? I know I can set the Switch * pedals to trigger Loop A "or" Loop B, but not A "and" B? Thanks!

      Hi @ChrisF ,


      You can do this using the Loop triggers. Map any of the loop triggers to a footswitch then go to the "preset" tab in the looper menu. Find the loop trigger you mapped to a footswitch and set the "track" parameter to A&B, B&C, or A&C.
