TC Helicon’s VoiceLive 3 is a modernized effects looper with progressive capabilities for both voice and guitar.

VoiceLive 3 gives you a vocal effects path more comprehensive than anything before it, featuring 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different styles, and more than 250 factory presets available right out of the box (and more through free downloads). Its guitar section, on the other hand, rivals even the best of pedal boards – thanks to TC Electronic FX like Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus, and Vortex Flanger. You can also choose the perfect amp emulation, from vintage British to classic American.

Building Better Songs with Loops
Looping on VoiceLive 3 allows you to experiment with real-time song creation or spontaneous loop jams, by arranging and re-arranging backing tracks with flexible verse-chorus-bridge switching. The LoopAssist™ function helps you make tighter loops with less effort and auto-expand loops to allow different lengths.

Dedicated Vocal PA and Guitar Out
You can send your vocal sound to the PA while your guitar sound goes to your amp. This feature also works if you’re looping; the stereo vocal loops go to the PA while the stereo guitar loops go separately to the amps. An intuitive display lets you see your settings at a glance, with stompbox-style access to FX and controls. Vocal, Guitar and Looping have their own indicator colors, along with all the I/Os you need - including dedicated vocal PA and Guitar Out.

TC-Helicon's most comprehensive Vocal FX suite
The VoiceLive 3 is TC Helicon’s most comprehensive vocal FX suite to date, replete with Doubling, Harmony, Echo, Reverb, HardTune, Flanger, Chopper, Choir and more. There are also upgraded modes and harmony options in relation to the VoiceLive 2.  


  • Upgraded & expanded suite of our renowned vocal effects
  • Harmony sounds – Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed Mode
  • Vocoder with Voice Controlled Synth and Robot Modes
  • Adaptive Tone for a truly professional, produced sound
  • HIT button to create FX impact
  • VoiceSupport app for downloading & managing more presets

New Sounds and Styles
Expand your musical possibilities with exciting Harmony modes - Pedal, Fixed, and Mixed-Mode. There’s also an authentic Vocoder with voice-controlled polyphonic synth and robot modes so you can play your voice like an instrument. FX upgrades include new delay filters, new HardTune styles and better sounding doublings.

Personal Sound Engineer Included
Equipped with TC Helicon’s trademark Adaptive Tone™, VoiceLive 3 provides one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating. It's like having a personal sound engineer on-board.

Get Loud, No Clipping
The automatic Mic Gain feature takes the guesswork out of setting your input level properly. Sing your loudest into the mic and VoiceLive 3 will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.


  • TC Electronic TonePrint™ FX Styles & Great Tone Classics
  • Talk Box, Rhythmic, Octaver, Wah and Compressor
  • Convenient preset FX styles OR customize at will
  • Acoustic guitar styles with BodyRez™ shapes
  • Guitar chords automatically guide Harmony & more
  • Fast & accurate guitar tuner
  • HIT button to turn on multiple FX

Creative Choice
The Amp effect not only simulates physical amplifiers, but also provides controls for EQ, Gain, Tube/Transistor simulation and speaker emulation. The level of EQ control in the Amp block is huge, providing controls for both the pre-gain and post-gain stage parametric EQ – customization most amplifiers don’t offer.

The Unbeatable Guitar Road Kit
The effects only begin with the TonePrint effects styles. If you’re a seeker of sounds, you’ll be overloaded with great tone classics such as wah, octave, tremolo, and more. What’s even cooler is that guitar chords automatically guide vocal Harmony, HardTune, and Synth effects.

BodyRez™ for Acoustic Guitar
If you’re more of an acoustic player, VoiceLive 3 will optimize the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with BodyRezTM. Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.

Guitar & Headphone Cable
VoiceLive 3 comes with a specially designed combination Guitar & Headphone Cable too. This is a revelation if you use in-ear headphones because it combines your guitar and headphone lines into one cable, so you have freedom to move while you groove.

Looping Dominance
Create intricate songs and on-the-spot re-arrangements with VoiceLive 3’s multi-track looper, including intuitive control layout and infinite overdubs. That creates 3-phrase looping - complete with selectable layering and serial techniques. Not to mention the looper has a massive memory, with 45 minutes of looping time that lets you create entire sets of songs and store them for instant recall. Loops can be stored on board and recalled together with presets.

A Deeper Look at the Looping Features
VoiceLive 3 is dedicated to expanding your looping abilities. You can even create long loops on top of short ones, and vice versa, without having to set up timing beforehand. The LoopAssist™ function goes way beyond looping pedals to help you make tighter loops easier. It does this by correcting your loop’s start and end points, or stretching loops of varying lengths to mesh everything together.

Endless Styles & Genres
The GENRE feature allows you to easily browse hundreds of presets by style, effects type and artists. Choose a genre that suits you and VoiceLive 3 will list the presets that match your preference - perfect for when you’re looking for that specific sound or need inspiration.

Hundreds of FX to Hit
There’s a whopping 250+ factory presets and on-board storage for 500. Download and manage hundreds more via TC Helicon’s free VoiceSupport app. Chains of up to 10 FX changes can be added to each preset and accessed with the step button.

Next Gen Power
Under the hood VoiceLive 3 has three independent cores dedicated solely to vocals, guitar and looping. More memory and lightning fast access means double the processing power of their VoiceLive 2.

Command Center
VoiceLive 3 gives you easy access to presets, sounds and switching between them, while providing complete customization of switch functions and deep edit control. Use the LAYER button to change between the vocals, guitar and loop control layers. Each mode gives you instant access to layer-specific functions via the footswitches. The LCD display gives you a clear view of how footswitch controls correspond to effects.


  • 4-channel stereo outputs with dedicated vocal and guitar channels
  • Independent headphone and monitor mix
  • Combo Jack for Main inputs and automatic input/output sensing
  • Monitor mix input and pass-through to other monitors

Make It a HIT
The HIT button turns on multiple effects at once to add effect layers or to create quick A/B scenes for each preset. Use it to add sparkling vocal effects for the chorus, or strip down a guitar part for the verse, or even a combination of both vocal and guitar effects changes.

Endless Control with Stompbox Expansion
Add a Switch-3 accessory pedal to extend your on-the-fly control. Assign any presets or custom combination of Guitar, Vocal FX - or even Looping. There’s also Switch-6, so you can break out even more features.

It Comes with Ears
VoiceLive 3’s built in RoomSense™ technology listens to your music to guide your harmonies.  RoomSense can also be blended in with your headphone mix to allow you to hear the room sounds - especially useful with in-ear monitors.

More Mic, More Control
Now you can control your effects from a mic engineered for the sonic realities of modern vocal performance. Add the New TC-Helicon MP-76 with 4 user-assignable Mic Control™ buttons, the TC-Helicon MP-75, or the Sennheiser e835 FX.

Custom Gig Bag
The VoiceLive Gig Bag is made of durable nylon construction with padded protection, has multiple inside pockets for microphone, cables & other gear and comes with a handy shoulder strap.

VoiceSupport gives you new presets, firmware updates and maintains your personal database of presets. All you need is a USB equipped mac or windows computer.
