TC Electronic - VoiceLive 3 Extreme sets you free to focus solely on your performance with groundbreaking FX automation and backing track playback. Awe-inspiring vocal effects and rich guitar sounds run effortlessly by themselves. From the first song idea to the execution of complex live arrangements, everything you’ve worked for comes together in VoiceLive 3 Extreme.
Audience Connection Like Never Before
Every single detail you need to make your song exceptional – every FX change, every harmony, every loop – every sonic nuance – can be prepared on VL3X before the show. This totally transforms your relationship to the audience. (Oh, and did we say that you can do all of this for over 100 songs?)
Recording & Sharing Power
Your inspired backing tracks and FX sequencing are beautifully matched by the onboard audio recorder that allows you to capture everything you do in glorious 24-bit quality. Record every live performance, every home practice, with professional studio fidelity and effects – both vocal and guitar. Turn your tour into EP material or your late night jams into SoundCloud gold.
Your Voice: Front & Centre
With a mind-blowing vocal FX path featuring 11 independent effects blocks, over 180 different pre-programmed styles and more than 250 factory presets available right out of the box (and more available for free download), VL3X represents the absolute pinnacle of singers’ technology and is the perfect partner for your voice.
No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones
The guitar section of VL3X puts a premium stomp box collection at your feet – with rich tones from legendary FX makers TC Electronic – plus 30 amp emulations that can be customised far beyond belief. Together they make up an unbeatable piece of guitar road-kit.
Building Better Songs with Loops
Featuring 4 times the storage of VoiceLive 3, VL3X enables you to store every loop snippet or idea you have, allowing you to experiment with real-time song creation and exciting loop jams right until you drop. The smart LoopAssist™ and metronome functions help you to make tighter loops effortlessly and auto-expand allowing for different loop lengths.
Dedicated Vocal PA and Guitar Out
What makes VL3X an incredibly flexible performance system is the dedicated stereo vocal and stereo guitar amp outputs. Send your guitar sound directly to your favourite amp completely independent of the vocal output going to the PA – it even works when you’re looping.
Step 1: Prepare to Captivate
VL3X fulfils your studio-to-stage journey. It starts in rehearsal with you loading up a backing track – whether it’s just drums, bass, or a full band mix. VL3X captures all your effects changes, syncing them to your track — harmonies, delays, guitar FX, anything you can think of. You can even record FX changes that would otherwise be physically impossible using the switches alone.
Step 2: The Perfect Performance
It ends with you on stage, simply pressing “play” on VL3X and an amazing thing happens: Your track plays back with all the effect changes you perfected at home completely automated for your performance. Now you’re free to connect with your audience and your fellow players. All of that hard work you did before the gig – making your song sound just right – is heard every time you perform.
- Up to 100 audio backing tracks can be loaded for live accompaniment via a standard USB key
- MP3 and 16/24 bit WAV import formats supported
- Onboard Sequencer records and plays back FX and Step activations live
- Backing Tracks/Sequences load quickly via associated presets
- Icon-based play/record/editing interface and waveform display
Bootleg Your Own Show
Combining all this automation power with VL3X’s recording feature means that you’re always able to capture exactly what the audience hears on a USB key output. Not only is this a fantastic rehearsal tool, but you can also push “record” at the beginning of your show and have VL3X deliver your own “board mix” – perfect for your press kit, uploading to social media, combining with your video footage or duplicating for sale at the end of the show.

Personal Sound Engineer Included

Get Loud, No Clipping
The automatic Mic Gain feature takes the guesswork out of setting your input level properly. Simply sing your loudest into the mic and VL3X will set your mic gain automatically for the best signal-to-noise ratio and freedom from nasty input distortion.
No Compromise Guitar FX & Amp Tones
The guitar section of VL3X rivals even the most pristine pedal boards – thanks to legendary effects from TC Electronic like Flashback Delay, Hall of Fame Reverb, Corona Chorus, and Vortex Flanger. And you can also choose just the perfect amp emulation from vintage British to classic American.

What can you change in the guitar and amp presets? Here’s an example: The Amp effect not only simulates physical amplifiers, but also provides controls for EQ, Gain, Tube/Transistor simulation and speaker emulation. The level of EQ control in the Amp block is huge, providing controls for both the pre-gain and post-gain stage parametric EQ – something that most real-world amplifiers don’t offer. We’re talking about crazy deep customisation —same goes for all of the guitar effects. Don’t be ashamed of your sonic obsessions. They can all come true.
- Amp, Drive, Reverb, Delay, Compression, Wah, µMod, Octaver, Rhythmic.
BodyRez for Acoustic Guitar
More of an acoustic player? VL3X will optimise the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with ground-breaking BodyRez™. Carefully placed filters and fast acting compression combine to reduce “piezo-quack”, making your amplified guitar sound like the beautiful full-bodied instrument it is. Dial in as much or as little BodyRez as you need and use the handy EQ controls to fine-tune the dynamics of your sound.

VL3X comes with a specially designed combination Guitar & Headphone Cable too! This is a revelation if you use in ear headphones because it combines your guitar and headphone lines into one slim cable so you have ample freedom to move while you groove.
