TC Helicon VoiceLive 2
« on: May 14, 2014, 12:33:22 AM »
I have been frustrated lately with finding local musicians who have similar interests, and weary of all the baggage that goes along with starting a band and then keeping it going. I have had a Bandmix.com account for a long time and have not had much luck making any contacts there, so I have been thinking lately of going solo. I feel this may make good sense for me, and for obvious reasons, it is much easier to find gigs for one person than a full band.

I do NOT want to go the "backing track" route. I always felt that was pretty cheesy, and not very artistic. I have never liked doing straight covers anyway. But, a way to add vocal harmonies would be a very helpful tool.

The TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 would be great for this. At $799 may be a little too pricey for me, but I'm not ruling it out. The thing I like about this unit is that you can choose the gender of the harmony vocals, and it can add two part harmonies...one above pitch and one below.

If anyone has experience with this unit, or similar units, I would appreciate your opinions. Also if you know of similar units that are more affordable.

Those TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 units have dropped in price (a tad) since the VoiceLive 3's came out. I saw one at the friend for $399.99 (restock). Then again, what about the TC-Helicon VoiceTone Harmony-G XT? I've seen the demos out of curiousity, but personally I haven't dealt with those kind of devices. Me? I had a Bandmix.com account as well and I just bailed out. Been by myself too long. BTW, I don't care for the "straight covers" route either. Guess I'll stay in the "pretty cheesy, and not very artistic" category for now. :D  The shoe fits. ;)
