Excellent
Jean-Christophe318, 08.10.2018
J'utilise le voicelive play depuis quelques jours, et j'ai fait mon 1er concert avec avant-hier.
Je commence par les points négatifs qui sont décris notamment sur des forums: le premier est qu'il n'y a pas d'interrupteur. C'est stupide de la part du fabricant je trouve. Ce n'est pas ça qui coûte cher et je n'aime pas l'idée de brancher ou débrancher la prise pour allumer le voicelive. C'est peut-être psychologique...
Il est décrit sur certains forums que le potard de gain d'entrée est mal situé... Il est sur le côté gauche; personnellement, ça ne me gène pas: une fois que c'est réglé, on n'y touche plus.
Il n'est pas possible de brancher une guitare dedans pour l'harmonisation automatique de la voix. Soit on met la pédale proche de l'ampli guitare rythmique et l'appareil capte, soit on pré-programme la tonalité. Je n'utilise pas cette fonction, je ne m'attarde pas sur ce point mais je le soulève quand même.
L'équalisation est très sommaire et peu précise. Ca fait le taf en répétition, mais il est préférable de désactiver la fonction en concert.
Enfin, on aurait apprécié une housse pour le transport.

Mon utilisation principale: j'utilise essentiellement la réverb et le delay. J'ai tenté la compression lors du concert mais l'ingé son m'a demandé de la retirer; ça n'apportait rien de bon, voire même, c'était compliqué pour lui de faire une bonne EQ sur ma voix.

Points positifs:
la prise en main est facile. J'ai eu le voicelive 2 à l'époque... trop compliqué... Je chante dans 2 projets très différents au niveau du style musical. Le truc est qu'au final, on n'utilise que 2 ou 3 effets différents. Je n'avais donc pas besoin d'une machine de guerre pour laquelle il faut se taper un mode d'emploi complet de 124 pages en anglais (comme le voicelive 3); je suis trop paresseux pour ça...
Les effets sont jolis, tc helicon oblige. Pour les reverbs, je suis convaincu principalement par la plate bright, qui ajoute beaucoup de brillance à ma voix (grave en l'occurence). Les autres sont bien aussi; je testerai avec mon autre groupe mais je suis assez fan des plate sur les voix.
Plusieurs types de delay aussi. J'en utilise 2, l'un réglé au tap tempo (là j'ai dû trouver comment le faire sur le mode d'emploi mais c'est tout simple), et l'autre programmé. Il y a plusieurs types de delays. Je ne suis pas expert, j'ai trouvé mon bonheur facilement en chipotant un peu.
Je n'utilise pas les overdrive, flanger, chorus etc. J'ai un peu voyagé et testé les présets d'usine. Certains sont amusants et semblent corrects mais c'est pour moi plus une démonstration des possibilités du voicelive plutôt que des sons à utiliser tels quels (mais qui sait?).
L'ergonomie est bonne, même si la molette centrale aurait pu être dotée d'une fonction clic pour valider les choix dans les présets; on s'y habitue.Au niveau de l'encombrement, c'est parfait: pas trop grand, ni trop petit. Pas de risque d'appuyer sur 2 switches à la fois et pas besoin d'une valise de voyage pour le trimbaler.
Le poids est d'environ 1 kg; bien stable au sol. Rien à signaler.

Pour le concert, je n'ai pas eu de problème de son, ni de souffle de l'appareil. Le bouton hit est très pratique pour ajouter ou retirer un effet dans le son, mais tout doit être préparé à l'avance évidemment.
J'ai aimé la facilité sur scène, pas de prise de tête même si je n'utilise pas toutes les possibilités de la machine, en tout cas actuellement. Le looper est, parait-il, un peu court et se pilote mieux avec le fameux micro de la marque ou une pédale switch, mais pour moi, ça n'est pas utile.
A refaire, oui, sans problème. J'espère qu'il tiendra plusieurs années. L'avenir me le dira :)

A great effect machine for beginners
Akos, 03.10.2020
Many preset sounds and a nice sound overall make this little box a great companion for a singer or performer. The programming part takes some time to learn, but nothing you couldn't do if you already have it and want to include it in your performance. I find the sound quality not to be amazing, but unless you sing or play solo, the rest of the band may cover the little shortcomings of this pedal.

I recommend it if you're on a budget, but for truly high-quality audio, one needs to spend more, it seems.

Fantastic device
IvicaGlavocic, 18.08.2020
First of all, this unit has best auto tune out of all that I tried (Boss, other TC devices), it is smooth and if set properly almost not noticeable, does the job perfectly. Finally crowd is not suffering because of my vocal mistakes. Harmonizer works perfectly with specific setup - I return only my guitar from mix monitor to VoiceLive AUX plug, don't rely on built in microphone to give you accurate harmonies. I use both outputs to mix board, in master mix output I send voice with effects, and in my in-ear monitors I send native vocal with no effects, so I can hear my real singing and correct mistakes on the fly. Unit is very sturdy, built like a tank, and very reliable, after dozens of gigs not once it failed. Presets are fantastic if you want to adjust them for specific songs that require special effects like robot, or places that require more or less reverb. All in all, best of it's kind for the price.

Awesome UNIT
14.07.2014
The tone quality and the effects packed up in this unit are easily comparable to those found in way more expensive units.
I like it for:
- fantastic sound for the price, from what I've heard in this range it's unbeatable
- most of the time I use the re-verbs, being a ballad oriented singer, and the sound that comes out of this unit just fills the space with some kind of "sparkling dust" that adds a lot of quality to the tone
- I use it in combination with a wireless microphone and I had no troubles at all
- menu layout is user friendly and easy to navigate, settings are easy to understand and tune.
-update software works great, also allows to edit the presets from the computer
