How Do I Use This Thing?
I’ve got a mic, PA system and play with a band. I’d like the harmonies to be in
key automatically…

Follow steps 1-6 above.
With your PA output levels turned off or waaaay down, connect XLR cables from the OUT-
PUT of the VoiceLive Play to input(s) on your mixer .
Press MIX and turn the ROOMSENSE level all the way OFF .
Press BACK .
While singing, slowly raise the level of the PA system until it’s at a level that works well with
the rest of the band.
Use either the Control Knob or Up and Down footswitches to select presets. Try HardTune
or Harmony presets and the Play will figure out the key the band is playing in. If it’s having
trouble, try placing the Play closer to a chord based instrument or its’ amp, like guitar or key-
board… or keytar…epic!
I want to sing along, Karaoke style, with my mp3 player or through
my computer .
For an mp3 player, connect your device to the AUX input with a 1/8th inch cable.
For computer output, connect the VoiceLive Play to your computer with the supplied
USB cable.

Since computer systems vary wildly from user to user, we suggest looking up information on

Forums are a good place to check, along with manufacturer knowledgebase systems.

Looping Tips
When it comes to looping, practice is the key.You might notice that your loops have a small gap be-
tween the end of the phrase and when the loop restarts . This happens when you mis-time pressing the
PLAY/REC/O-DUB button. Pay careful attention to co-ordinating your button press to the down beat,
so that the loop beginning and end is seamless.
Experiment with exiting LOOP MODE and picking a different vocal sound for the next O-DUB layer.
You can get some great results by simply varying the sounds that are part of the loop.
When adding an O-DUB layer, you can record multiple passes of O-DUB parts without starting and
stopping the looper. This allows you to add numerous parts, which can all be removed with a single
UNDO action. (they can also be brought back by repeating the UNDO action)
Using a Switch3 will give you permanent access to looping without pressing the Up and Down foot-
switches. It frees up those switches to be assigned for Key/Scale selection, plus you don’t have to go in
and out of loop mode to change presets . It times out automatically, so you can choose a new sound .
The Switch3 buttons are mapped as follows:
1. Rec/Play/O-Dub
2 . Stop/Clear (Hold)
3 . Undo
The benefit of having undo on a separate button is the ability to perfectly time your undo, rather than
waiting a moment for a Hold to be registered.
Note: When a Switch3 is plugged in, Key/Scale selection is automatically assigned to UP/DN . When the
Switch3 is unplugged, UP/DN remains Key/Scale and will need to be changed in the setup menu if you
wish to assign UP/DN back to Looping.
