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 :)

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

Review after 6 months of live use
WillO, 14.06.2014
I got this for the singer in one of my electronic bands. Sound engineers were rarely blending her voice into the mix right (she was tending to sit on top of the mix instead of sitting back into it), so I bought this to apply my own effects to her voice, control freak that I am. For that, it works superbly. It's easy and logical to program, is sturdy and has a big bright screen so you can see where you are. The quality of the fx is excellent for live use (I don't use it for proper recording, although for rough and ready demos it does the job ok).

I have one niggle. You have no real control over EQ or compression, just broad presets that are either on or off. In practice, it's not a huge issue so long as you have a sound engineer who knows how to use EQ to notch out feedback frequencies, as the unit is more prone to introducing feedback than just a mic straight into a desk.

On the other side of the same coin, the unit makes multiple micro-adjustments to the FX during a performance, and it seems to do this extremely well. The EQ profile sounds very similar to the ones I end up with on our finished studio recordings, which is impressive.

All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. My singers' vocals have sounded great in every live mix since, and she's more confident knowing that she sounds good out front, making for better performances.

Great, robust vocal tool
Davet247, 29.02.2016
I used this pedal in my band to ensure quality sound and add perfect live harmony. I was on my guitar effects board until very recently. Comes with a very good transport bag.

Pros & Cons

Pros: Sounds very good, easy to operate live and fairly easy programming. You also ensure consistent vocal sound like you would any other instrument. I use this in my studio and live recording sessions.

Cons: Using it live can be problematic unless your using your own sound engineer. Most of the time they will dismiss it or just ignore the fact you have your own vocal effects. I've had to stop using it for most gigs as the engineers end up feeding it through the monitors with added delay that screws up your timing!
