With a completely redesigned user interface, the VoiceLive 2 floor-based vocal processor is easy to use whether youre looking for one preset or a creative sequence of sounds for every song. Whether you play guitar, a MIDI keyboard or no instrument at all, VoiceLive 2 has brilliant vocal harmonies for you. VoiceLive 2 contains virtually all the effects necessary to produce any vocal sounds of decades past, and into the future. Like a great audio engineer, VoiceLive 2 listens to you and adjusts to make your voice sound smooth and produced. Several features are automated, such as mic gain and reverb/delay ducking.
Now its easier than ever to lead your own vocal backup group and sound rich and authentically human at the same time. It starts with a guitar, MIDI keyboard or aux-input controlled vocal harmony algorithm with four intervals, each of which can be unison-doubled or 8 discrete voices controlled by your MIDI keyboard playing. And when you want to tap into your gospel soul, theres the completely new Choir algorithm that creates the massive multi-voice group vocal sound to bring home those memorable choruses.
Having a large chain of effects wont do as much good if you cant add and remove links in the chain when the mood strikes. The individual stompbox footswitches for Harmony, Doubling, Mod, Reverb, Delay and FX give you the flexibility to layer or simplify at will. Also, theres a Shortcut footswitch that be assigned to add other interesting features such as tap tempo, harmony hold and others. There is no separation between Song mode and Preset mode as there was in the classic VoiceLive; each preset can have up to 50 steps each of which can contain a different preset or a simple modification of the main preset.
