I just recieved my Voicelive2 what a neat unit. I used it for the first time at practice lastnight. I found a couple of presets that worked really well.

One of the presets is call brick in the wall so we started playing another brick in the wall and it was spot on.

I'll report back on what I think as I get into the unit.

I think there will be a little bit of a learning curve, but thats half the fun. :)

Hi, I use a VL too. Been using it for live gigs for 3 years now. great little box. Lots to learn in store for you. The curve is steep.

The VL2 is capable of handling an instrument directly to control the key. That's a must. On the older model we have a separate unit to do that.

I wouldn't go without any more.

Sorry, I forgot I posted this and just saw you had asked a question.

To answer your question, I mainly program the unit to my liking. The presets are mostly a bit over the top for me.. too many voices, too much fx or not the right ones, etc. Plus, I have had to make lots of adjustments for EQ, compression, FX, etc.

Basically, I use the unit for a 1UP harmony, and have another person singing below me. The VL is singing the higher harmonies always. This sounds very natural. You have to learn to keep your voice in key with the hormonizer to allow the harmony itself to track correctly all the time. It's a little tricky and takes some practice.

But yeah, I gig all the time ~60 shows during the summer-fall season. I always use the VoiceLive. I have gotten very good at tap dancing if you know what I mean, and I am very fluid with the unit.

If you'd like I can send you a document that I wrote a while back that describes a very generic way to set up the unit that should work with different mic's and in most all situations. Send an email address to kingtf@sbcglobal.net and I will forward it on to you.
