The TC-Helicon VoiceLive 3 Guitar/Vocal Effects Processor and Looper is designed for live performance and recording applications, providing extensive vocal effects, guitar stompbox effects, and 45 minutes of phrase looping in a durable extruded-aluminum footpedal chassis. The unit offers 11 independent effect blocks, over 180 different styles, and over 200 factory presets. It also provides storage for up to 500 presets and the option to download additional presets online for free.

Once you've tooled around with it, you'll find it a very powerful resource—more than enough to enliven a set of solo singer/songwriter material; and that's just one of its many uses. 

On the vocal side, the pedal can be used to correct pitch, adjust tone, gate, compress, EQ, add reverb, and add harmonies. Three different harmony modes allow you to control the specifics of harmonization. Moreover, harmonies can be generated based on a variety input signals, such as built-in room microphones, a 1/4" input jack, a stereo 3.5mm input jack, a 5-pin DIN MIDI connection, and more. This allows you to create realistic three-part harmonies as determined by the chords you're playing on a guitar, a piano, backup track, or a MIDI instrument; it also allows for a degree of improvisation and exploratory meandering in musical motifs. 

For guitar, the unit includes extensive stompbox effects like delay, reverb, chorus, talk box, chopper, bass wah, and drive effects. The unit also includes a wide range of amplifier emulations, from vintage British to classic American amps. These amplifier simulations can be tweaked in depth via the UI.

The pedal can also be used to loop both guitar and vocal phrases with quantization to a metronome, infinite overdubs, recallable presets, and up to 45 minutes of non-volatile memory. It offers three-phrase looping, allowing you to build different sections of a song as you go along—particularly useful if you'd like to alternate between verses, choruses, and bridges in your live music. With the three-phrase looper, you can play such songs while building up the arrangement as the song progresses. 

The pedal features dedicated stereo vocal and separate stereo guitar amplifier outputs for connecting to a PA and guitar amplifier respectively. A specially designed guitar and headphone cable allows for connection to an in-ear monitoring system and enables practice without the need for an external amplifier.
