I’m going to see some friends in Austin, TX this weekend and I’m looking forward to checking out the new TC Helicon VoiceLive Play portable vocal processor. It’s a brand new product from TC-Helicon that provides a great performance tool for singers and songwriters.
I’ve used their products in the past. I owned their VoiceWorks processor about 5 years ago when I used to sing in an 80s techno band called The Elite Gentlemen (don’t ask). We were decent – a bunch of guys who liked to drink beer and play music, but not really any good.
We were all inspired by bands like Yazoo, Depeche Mode and Erasure but our songs sounded more like Devo than anything else. I don’t know why – it was just what we did! And we didn’t have the best singer either, so we relied on the VoiceWorks quite a bit to improve his vocals.
It was an amazing product that helped us create some pretty awesome soundscapes with our songs.
The TC Helicon VoiceLive Play is a new vocal effects processor featuring Adaptive Tone and NaturalPlay. It’s the first in the VoiceLive Series to offer a Hands-Free option. The VoiceLive Play features over 100 presets, specifically designed by top artists and producers. It features a built-in looper and USB audio I/O for recording.
The TC Helicon VoiceLive Play has Adaptive Tone, which automatically adjusts compression, EQ and de-essing as you sing; so you don’t have to worry about it. This is a major feature for singers who want control of their vocal sound but don’t necessarily know how to get there. The unit also has NaturalPlay harmony technology, which allows you to strum the appropriate chord on a guitar or keyboard connected to the unit to trigger harmonies that follow the melody of your performance.
The VoiceLive Play includes USB audio I/O for connection to software such as Ableton Live, Cubase, GarageBand or ProTools, as well as support for Mac/PC recording with included software.
In the 1980s, vocalists were left out of the technology revolution that swept the recording industry. With the advent of MIDI and sampling, electronic instruments became more powerful, smaller and easier to use. But for singers, the options were limited.
Electric guitars got distortion pedals and synthesizers got vocoders, but singers were stuck with a microphone and a compressor. The TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play vocal processor aims to change all that.
VoiceLive Play is designed for singers who want to add effects to their live performances without needing an engineer to run them. With VoiceLive Play, you can create vocal harmonies in real time, loop parts of your performance and add effects like reverb or pitch correction. You can even use it with your guitar if you want to play and sing at the same time.
HAL 9000 and the android Data from Star Trek are not human, but they are super intelligent, very powerful, and capable of emotion. They have some human qualities. They have no consciousness.
David Hanson is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) researcher with a background in robotics and animation. He believes that robots will be developed that have all of the positive qualities of humans and none of the negative ones. This article is about his current work on robots that talk and exhibit emotions.
Hanson Robotics has developed many robot heads that look and act like humans. They can display facial expressions like anger, fear, sadness, happiness, and surprise. They can smile at you and frown when they hear bad news. They can learn to like or dislike people who treat them well or poorly.
Hanson’s latest creation is named Sophia. She has a realistic female face and voice. She can speak in English or Chinese with a natural sounding voice and cadence to her speech. She can tell jokes, give weather reports, respond to questions about geography, history, science, art, math, music and other subjects…
