Topic: Problems with VoiceWorks Plus
I am having two problems with the TC-Helicon VoiceWorks Plus. Any help would be appreciated.
1. When using a preset that creates harmonies based on a MIDI chord, sometimes I get accurate harmonies and sometimes I get random harmony notes unrelated to the chord or key. This happens using the exact same preset, with the exact same Sonar MIDI track or keyboard chords. I am filtering out program change messages. I am feeding the original vocal from a Roland VS-1680, and then supplying the MIDI chords either from a Sonar sequence (with only one track for the vocal and no controller messages) or by holding chords on a MIDI keyboard. Note that I can see the MIDI input and vocal input registering on the VoiceWorks Plus. Note also that this can work and then not work within a 15-minute period.
2. My old Digitech Vocalist would supply harmony notes when I held down a MIDI chord and then go silent when I released the notes. That was great for adding harmonies only in specific places. With the VoiceWorks Plus, after I release the chord, I continue to get harmonies based on the last chord I input which is annoying since I have to mute and unmute the track quickly.
