    Hi there, I'm a singer and a totally newbie with the TC Helicon Voicelive 2 touch... I played with my band and wanted to mix with some live loops I was making but they got out of sync with the rythm of the band. I've been looking everywhere but I cannot find how to do this, hope someone understands what the problem is?

      Hey @Doris,
      This is actually a pretty difficult issue when it comes to live looping with a band. You basically have two options, and your drummer might hate both...

      Option 1 is to crack the whip on your drummer.  Get them to pay attention to your loop, and once you've recorded a loop and have it playing back they'll need to play in time with your loop.  Your loop becomes the new tempo master that everyone else slaves to, especially the drummer, or else like you found everything will go out of sync very fast.

      Option 2 is to introduce a MIDI click track.  Use something like a laptop to output MIDI clock with an audible click track - like a metronome the click track is then fed to your drummer through in-ear monitors (headphones), and MIDI clock is sent to your Touch 2's MIDI input which will quantize your loops to the click track.  This is obviously extra hardware and effort but some drummers will prefer this method.

      Both of these will require cooperation and extra effort from your drummer, which isn't ideal but really this is only way to loop live in sync with a band.  It's a simple problem with a pretty complex and still-evolving solution.

      The concept of a "listening looper" is a relatively new one.  To have a looper that adjusts to your playing, as opposed to adjusting your playing to the looper, isn't a common thing in the industry yet.  TC Electronic just released a listening looper last year, the Ditto Jam, and its beat-detection tech is hopefully going to make it into future TC Helicon products.  But for now with vocal looping you'll have to do it the old way (above), or alternatively you could send your vocals out from the Touch 2 in mono and do your looping in a Ditto Jam, that'd make your dummer happy but you'd only have one loop slot as opposed to Touch 2's 6 loop slots.

      Well first of all: thank you very much for reacting, this helps me getting to know the options a lot better!!! The solutions you suggest are in my case not possible because we don't have a drummer (we ave a percussion player , the rhythms come form the computers of the keyboard player and the guitarist) so that is a bit difficult.

      I heard somenone mentionng Ditto Jam so I will explore this as well although I bought the Voicelive for this purpose. Another thing is that I want to mix in my loop while we are playing, (instead of me starting them an someone else following me) so that makes it even more difficult.

      Other options I was thinking about:
      1:can the slave option in the settings for metronome do something to this?
      2: I heard someone mentioning Ableton push? Is that an option?

    Hi there, I'm a singer and a totally newbie with the TC Helicon Voicelive 2 touch . I am experimenting with it and I canot find out how to connect the TC Helicon Voicelive 2 touch with a Korg K25 midi studio controller. I want to do that in case when I want to harmonize it keeps in key with the song we are playing. I never worked with midi at all so maybe I am making some basical mistakes, but I hope that there is somewhere a guide or what to help me get along.

      Hey @Doris,
      You should be able to use a 5-pin MIDI cable (like this) to connect the MIDI output from your Korg to the MIDI input on the VoiceLive Touch 2.  Also ensure that in the "Setup" menu on your Touch 2, on the "MIDI" tab that the "MIDI Control" parameter is set to either "MIDI" or "Merge" so that the Touch 2 is listening to that MIDI input port.  Cheers!

    Hi, I recently got a Motor 61 during an end of year sale but now 2 of the keys do not work unless pressed down hard... playing normal every key will work except these 2.  I have opened a support ticket but have not had a reply at all and it has been over a week.  Is there anything I can do to start an RMA??

    Hiii.  Can someone please help direct me what to plug in where to make my Arturia MIDI keyboard work with my VoiceLive 3? I have a Scarlett 18i8 to use as an in-between but am not sure what to plug in where to be able to hear the keyboard sounds in the VoiceLive.  This is currently where my vocals and guitar stuff is done and I want to be able to take the MIDI keyboard sounds from my keyboard (which obviously only come through on the PC) and have them go into the VoiceLive so I can loop that in with my vocals and guitar stuff.  I realize I probably have to somehow use my DAW (Ableton Lite came with the keyboard) to make this work?  But am unsure how to do even that! I am very new to the technical side of all of the musical things... So if someone would be kind enough to dumb it down for me, that would be great!  Currently, the keyboard and VoiceLive are both connected to the PC via USB... And these, as well as the Scarlett, all have MIDI in and out ports {this was the only thing someone had asked in return when I explained my issue before} that I just need to know how to use.

      If you're monitoring via the VL3, and the PC is generating the sounds via a "softsynth" I would take the "AudioOut" from the Soundcard(Scarlett) into the "Aux In" socket on the VL3. (1/8 inch stereo audio lead)


      Midi keyboard => Scarlett/PC => Audio out to VL3 Aux In  

      But there are multiple ways to do it. That's probably the easiest way to start.

      Maybe add a USB lead to the VL3 from the PC if you need sync,but then it starts to get a bit more head-hurty.

    Pedal compatibility

     Hi! I want to know if the pedal is compatible with the Korg Pa700. Does this pedal also have an expression pedal? what is it that plugs into it?

      Hello @RadarKilowatt , welcome to the community.


      I suggest that you raise a Care ticket for Spare Parts explaining your requirements. This is done by clicking on Support at the top of the page and then clicking the Create a Care Ticket button. This is only possible if you have completed all the required fields in your profile. Make sure that you fill-in every required field on the Care form.

      You can go into any guitar store and get a 9VDC power supply for guitar pedals (reverse polarity with minus on the pin) that can output at least 1700mA.
