I love it!
by Arthur Stuckman from Fremont,OhioThis device is awesome!,i had to go to the website to download the software and then i had to deal with the learning curve to use it,but after that I can see where the possibilities are endless!.i am ... read more [+]really happy and the only other product thats even comparable is the flagship voice pro which costs 3 grand.the built in preamp works well and is a blessing.i use it primarily for the modeling effects in which it shines.but now i'm beginning to use it for singing and WOW!,I love it.thanks to brian vandekeere for his help in purchasing all of my great equipment from sweetwater. close [-]

Using It Live
by Reggie from ColoradoI bought a few of these to use with our live show. I use a midi controller to change patches on the fly for different effects / songs / models / delay lengths, etc., and keep everyone on the same p... read more [+]age.

Basically, the unit can be divided in to two functions. It's either a unison / harmony generator or it's a voice modeler. The unison / harmony generator is probably the most widely used effect. The modeler works well, too - if you need a megaphone or a distorted, lo-fi vocal. After you decide whether to use the harmony or the modeler, you can add varying levels of reverbs, delays, auto-corrections, u-mods and distortions - all of which are highly tweak-able. The u-mods are things like choruses and flange.
You can save all of your presets to your own patch numbers, match up with your other midi boxes and be on your way. For instance, if your guitar patch 41 on your guitar fx box requires vampire vocals, simply make preset 41 your vampire vocal effect - and connect the units via 5 or 7 pin midi cable. It plays well with other midi devices. There's also a pedal input to enable / disable certain functions.
I mainly use just one unison voice- usually panned quite hard and set -1 or -2db lower than the input voice. That really gives a nice, fat doubled sound that the audience doesn't notice. I have a couple of patches for megaphone / breathy-distortion settings and they work very well also.
The correction effect is not practical for live use unless you seriously gate your input mics - and I mean seriously gate. Otherwise, there's just too much warbling as the correction algorithm starts trying to correct instruments that are bleeding in to the vocal mics. For studio use, I'm sure it's fine. There are certainly enough control parameters to get as much correction / auto tune as you can handle. But, because of the way correction works, we don't use it live.
Overall, these are great units for the money. I used the discontinued VoiceDouble in the aux sends in the past. They were great units also - and I may have preferred them for their simplicity - but it's nice to have the aux sends back for other uses like in-ear monitors.
The doubling effect works quickly and is more than useable for live rock vocals. The modelers are convincing - and can go from subtle to bizarre. The unison voice really fattens things up so that the singer can hear themselves better and thereby sing better. These will inspire a better vocal performance, for sure. The harmony voices are great too but if I use them - usually I'll use a 3rd or octave up voice- and they're usually dialed back to -12db to -18db as they can sound pretty artificial if they're too loud.
My only complaint with the whole unit- and it's nitpicky - might be the quality of the reverbs and delays. While they're better than what you get on something like the PreSonus Studio Live board, they're not what I would call beautiful reverbs. But, you get what you pay for. If you want pro level 'verb, prepare to fork out $2K starting price. But again, that's nitpicky. The verbs on the VoiceWorks are pro-level and more than useable - but TC has better verbs in their arsenal - just not at this price point. And, no one is making you use the internal reverbs, you can still send your doubled / modeled vocal to a beautiful reverb unit after your processing. close [-]
It's NOT complicated
by Daryl Crowley from Ludington, MIIf you're a guitar player you NEED the harmony controller for guitar, if you're a keyboard player you need the midi controller, that makes getting the right harmony EASY.

After that it'... read more [+]s just learning the controls for the reverb, delay, compressor and other effects, which actually is pretty straight forward and is CLEARLY explained in the manual, but the manual assumes you know what FXs are.
But the difficult part, getting the right harmony is VERY EASY IF YOU HAVE THE ASSOCIATED(guitar or midi) CONTROLLER so that the unit knows what harmony lines to create. Without the controller, harmony is very difficult, but now you can get the unit and the controller for the price of the LIVE unit, but this rack mount unit is easier to fine tune and fits in the studio much better.
It's a great product and it is NOT rocket surgery. If you're thinking hard about it, take the plunge but get the controller for your instrument!
I didn't give it 5 stars only because you have to buy the controller seperate. close [-]

by chuck chambers from watkinsville, gaI've had it for a few weeks and I've really been impressed. Seems well built. Manual that came with it provides very little info. But, their website has a great deal more information. Some of the ... read more [+]presets will not sound like you want them, however, they do give a good overview of what the unit is capable of and I think that is their intended purpose. The editor that works through MIDI is wonderful because it helps navigate through the zillions of possibilities of tonal change. You can do anything with this piece of equipment and you will have to do some research to learn all of the various changes. I've read reviews on other websites and everyone talks about how hard it is to use. I think you would get the same reponse if you put a crop-dusting pilot in a B-52 bomber. But, once you readthe manual and research the web you will find that it is not that complicated and really does a lot more than you think. I gave a 4.5 because of the amount of research you have to do on your own. I also give Sweetwater a 5.5 out of 5. Hope this helps. close [-]
