VoiceLive Touch

The TC-Helicon VoiceLive Touch 2 is a hardware processor for vocal harmonies, effects, and looping.

It accepts MIDI input, and many of its effects parameters can be controlled via MIDI input, making it a great partner device for the Motion Synth. The VoiceLive Touch 1 can also be used, as well as any other vocal effects processor that can be controlled by MIDI input.

Check out some VoiceLive Touch harmonies and effects being controlled by the Motion Synth here.

Guide to using the Motion Synth with the VoiceLive touch:

  • Send MIDI from the Motion Synth to a VoiceLive Touch via a MIDI cable with a 5-DIN connector.
  • To control harmony notes via the Motion Synth Key Screen, pick a preset on the VoiceLive Touch that supports this. For example, VoiceLive Touch preset #155 'MIDI Notes', allows you to trigger harmony notes via the Keys on the Motion Synth Key Screen.
  • Use the list of MIDI Continuous Controller numbers ('MIDI Implementation', see page 78) in the VoiceLive Touch Manual to select which effect parameters you want to control via motion.
  • Use the Motion Tab in the Motion Synth App to set up Send CC modules that will map your actions to the effect parameters you want to control. To get you started, you can import the example preset included below directly into the Motion Synth App. As explained below, this preset is already set up to control specific effect parameters.
