TC Helicon’s VoiceLive 3 Extreme is an expansion upon the VoiceLive 3 model effects looper, highlighted by its unrivaled multi-FX automation & playback capabilities.

The VoiceLive 3 Extreme allows you to focus solely on your performance with innovative FX automation and backing track playback, replete with vocal effects and rich guitar sounds that run effortlessly by themselves. From initial ideas to the execution of complex live arrangements, everything you’ve worked on comes together in VL3X. Every detail you need to make your song exceptional – every FX change, harmony, or loop – every sonic nuance – can be prepared on VL3X before the show. This transforms your relationship to the audience, and you can do this for over 100 songs.

Recording & Sharing Power
Your inspired backing tracks and FX sequencing are matched by the onboard audio recorder that allows you to capture everything you do in shining 24-bit quality. You can record any live performances or home practices, with professional studio fidelity and effects – both vocal and guitar. Turn your tour into EP material or your late night jams into SoundCloud gold.

Your Voice, Front & Center
With a vocal FX path featuring 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different pre-programmed styles and more than 250 factory presets available right out of the box (and more available for free download), VL3X represents a high point of singers’ technology and is a great partner for your voice.

No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones
The guitar section of VL3X puts a premium stomp box collection at your feet, with rich tones from FX makers TC Electronic, plus 30 amp emulations that can be customized beyond belief. Taken together they make an unbeatable guitar road-kit.

Building Better Songs with Loops
Featuring 4 times the storage of VoiceLive 3, VL3X enables you to store every loop snippet or idea you have, allowing you to experiment with real-time song creation and exciting loop jams until you drop. The smart LoopAssist™ and metronome functions help you to make tighter loops with less effort and auto-expand, allowing for different loop lengths.

Dedicated Vocal PA and Guitar Out
What makes VL3X an incredibly flexible performance system is the dedicated stereo vocal and stereo guitar amp outputs. Send your guitar sound directly to your favorite amp completely independent of the vocal output going to the PA – it even works when you’re looping.


Prepare to Cultivate : VL3X fulfills your studio-to-stage journey. It starts in rehearsal with you loading up a backing track – whether it’s just drums, bass, or a full band mix. VL3X captures all your effects changes, syncing them to your track — harmonies, delays, guitar FX, anything you can think of. You can even record FX changes that would otherwise be physically impossible using the switches alone.

The Perfect Performance : It ends with you on stage, simply pressing “play” on VL3X and an amazing thing happens: Your track plays back with all the effect changes you perfected at home completely automated for your performance. All the hard work you did before the gig making your song sound just right is heard each time you perform.

  • Up to 100 audio backing tracks can be loaded for liveaccompaniment via a standard USB key
  • MP3 and 16/24 bit WAV import formats supported
  • Onboard Sequencer records and plays back FX and Stepactivations live
  • Backing Tracks/Sequences load quickly via associatedpresets
  • Icon-based play/record/editing interface and waveform display

Bootleg Your Own Show: Combining all this automation power with VL3X’s recording feature means that you’re able to capture exactly what the audience hears on a USB key output. Not only is this a fantastic rehearsal tool, but you can also push “record” at the beginning of your show and have VL3X deliver your own “board mix” – for your press kit, uploading to social media, combining with your video footage or duplicating for sale at the end of the show.

Much like their VoiceLive 3, TC Helicon’s VoiceLive 3 Extreme offers its most comprehensive vocal FX suite to date.

    • 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 delay filters, HardTune styles and better sounding doublings.

Personal Sound Engineer Included: Equipped with our trademark Adaptive Tone™, VL3X provides the one feature no singer should be without: automatic and intelligent control of Compression, EQ, De-essing, and Gating, giving your voice the impact and presence to always stand out in the mix.

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 VL3X will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.


No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones: The guitar section of VL3X rivals even the most pristine pedal boards – thanks to effects from TC Electronic® 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.

    • 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 BodyRezTM shapes
    • Guitar chords automatically guide Harmony & more
    • Fast & accurate guitar tuner
    • HIT button to turn on multiple FX

Creativity Amplified : 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 – something that most real-world amplifiers don’t offer.  That’s crazy deep customization, and the same goes for all of the guitar effects.  

BodyRez™ for Acoustic Guitar: If you’re more of an acoustic player, VL3X will optimize the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with BodyRez™ - where carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”. This makes your amplified guitar sound like the full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune your dynamics.
The Unbeatable Guitar Road Kit: The FX only start with the TonePrint effects styles. If you’re a seeker of sounds, you’ll be blown away by the options. It’s loaded with great tone classics such as wah, octave, and tremolo, and guitar chords you play automatically guide vocal Harmony, HardTune, and Synth effects.

Guitar & Headphone Cable: VL3X 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.


Create intricate songs and on-the-spot re-arrangements with the VoiceLive 3 platform’s powerful multi-looper.

Your Looping Assistant :  The LoopAssist™ function helps you make tighter loops more easily. It does this through intelligently correcting your loop’s start and end points, or stretching loops of varying lengths to mesh everything together – a feature that goes way beyond most looping pedals.

Endless Styles & Genres: The GENRE feature allows you to browse hundreds of presets by style, effects type and artists. Choose a genre that suits you and VL3X will list the presets that match your preference 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 our free VoiceSupport app. Chains of up to 10 FX changes can be added to each preset and accessed with the step button.
