TC Electronic ramps up vocal effects processing with VoiceLive2 Extreme Edition
(Dave Molter | Posted 2011-07-10)
TC Electronic pioneered the field of stompbox vocal effects that singers can control without the need for a soundman, so it's only logical that they have pushed the envelope with the introduction of VoiceLive2 Extreme Edition.
The Extreme Edition hasall the same features of the original but offers twice the looping memory, an enhanced microphone preamp for ultimate transparency, new Extreme Edition presets and an appearance that is sure to make a major impact on any stage with its new, extruded aluminum chassis and artwork in the coolest of blue!
VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition delivers a raft of vocal effects that should please any singer: auto-adaptive compression & equalization, reverbs, delays, modulation effects, harmony processing, doubling, and more. All effects can be combined, tweaked and stored as personal presets for anything from ’smooth-producer-like’ sounds to ’dirty-and-in-your-face’ outrage to ’downright-spacious’ weirdness – or anything in between.
And to open creative vistas even further, VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition’s onboard looper now records for twice the loop time compared to the original version. This allows singers to build layers of vocal loops up to 30 seconds in stereo (60 seconds in mono) for instant enjoyment as well as for a source of endless inspiration.

VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition is also a limited run. Only an exclusive and limited batch will be manufactured, and in the US, Musician’s Friend is the exclusive dealer of this jaw-dropping vocal effects monster. In fact, Musician’s Friend and its customers have been among the contributors – that also include professional singers and visual artists – who have provided TC-Helicon with inputs and feedback in the process of designing VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition. In the rest of the world, VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition will be available through regular TC-Helicon dealers.
