It takes some getting used to in order to get good sounds out of the VL2.
I mean the harmony parts. I use it for straight vocal processing now and really like it for that alone. On some things I put very slight amount of harmony which can add to the voice.
Go over the manual and get the usb thing working first. I use S/Pdif on a loop.
So I have the VL2 setup as an external instrument in cubase and add it to a vocal sub bus as an insert.
The vocal sub bus has all the fx used for vocals. That way any track you send to that bus will get that processing.
A vocal track has a monitor button used to switch from listening to the live mic or the recorded track. With that setup I play back a track after recording it and it sounds just like it did when I recorded it.
The simplest setup I can think of which I would do to test a setup is to add a bus in VSTconnections in cubase set to your usb output and set the output of a prerecorded vocal track to that bus.
Hi, Tacman7!Thanks for the advice. I have a few questions about this matter and some other things as well....
1) Today, I made the MIDI connections, so that I will use my keyboard for putting the harmonies LIVE into Cubase to an available stereo audio track. But what happens is that, when I am playing back my recorded fiel, and I am trying to listen to what I recorded, the sound is so wacky....It sounds like T-pain effect or Hard-tune....So, I don't know if there is something in the setup, or inside the edit-function that needs to be adjusted??
2) As I have this Tascam mixer, I have a hard time in finding out how to route my signals back to the VL2....So, I think, if I am gonna use the harmonize upon pre-recorded vocal tracks, it seems that using it as an insert is the easiest way for me, so I don't waste my precious time in finding out more about the Tascam DM4800, if noone els can help me with that...
* When I try to make a new External FX in Cubase, and connecting the AISO4ALL-driver into the AUDIO DEVICE-field, and make the SENDBUS1 be connected with VoiceLive2 1 for the Left, VoiceLive 2 2 for the Right Device Port, and also the same for the Returns, what happens is that all the INPUTs and OUTPUTs gets disconnected....Why is that happening?
Other than that, the VoiceLive 2 is a very handy tool, and makes my backing vocals sit tight in a mix...
Hope someone will help me with this issues, cuz the Norwegian Importer, has helped me getting started with the other things, but this thing with Cubase, he got stuck, cuz he didn't know so much about Cubase....
