TC Helicon Announces VoiceLive 3

VoiceLive 3 also includes stomp box styles taken directly from TC Electronic’s TonePrint pedals.

Victoria, BC (January 3, 2014) -- Since its 2004 launch, the VoiceLive series from TC-Helicon has provided singers and performers everywhere with unprecedented personal and professional control of their live vocal sound and effects. 2009 saw the release of VoiceLive 2, which fast became the #1 best-seller and set the bar for all subsequent TC-Helicon products. This year, TC-Helicon changes the game once again with the introduction of VoiceLive 3.

Going leaps and bounds beyond its predecessor, VoiceLive 3 introduces next generation hardware processing and a vocal effects path more comprehensive than anything created before. But that’s not all.

Add to that an innovative phrase looper ideal for song creation, loop jams, and arranging backing tracks on-the-fly (or at home) and you’ve got an incredible 3-in-1 powerhouse for singers and instrumentalists alike.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
