TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 | All-In-One Musicians

As a singer, voice talent, and multi-instrument player myself I have tried a lot of instruments and gadgets and have worked with a lot audio mixing devices, trying to get that perfect sound, the sound that I want to hear from my Instrument and my Voice.

Just recently I found TC Helicon VoiceLive 3, online and watched it’s demo video and I was amazed in what it can do. It can loop tracks it can add effects to your voice and even your guitar at the same time. Though it’s price may be quite steep it’s worth a try for every guitar player, singer, band member, or even someone who just wants to meddle with music a bit more.

Now let’s go to the technical side,
