I bought a TC Helicon Voiceworks unit about eight years ago, but have never used it with the G. I've searched here and found good intel on connecting the unit to the aux out, but I'm puzzled as to how to use this thing.

Say that I've recorded a lead vocal and want to send this track through the aux out and back into an empty track on the G in order to add harmony lines to particular parts of the lead vocal.

The Voiceworks seems to have left and right outputs, so that a processed signal will be in stereo, but it seems to me that there should be a way to separate the lead vocal from the Voicework-generated harmony vocals, like you would assign a drum machine's kick drum to an individaul output in order to have direct control of it. After all, unless you're going for an Everly Bros. effect, you wouldn't want to harmonize every line of the song . . .

How do you guys use the Voicework's harmonizing capabilities? Do you do as above and then mix the lead vocal and the selected harmony sections to another track using EDIT (or bounce with quick fader work)?

Randy

Hi Randy,

Just working from theory here...

Your voiceworks has one input and two outputs as the processed audio is in stereo.

Let's assume you recorded your vocal unprocessed on track 1.

Connect one of the monitor outputs (either L or R, doesn't matter as long as your vocal track is panned centre) to the Voiceworks input.

Connect output L of the voiceworks to input 1 of the G.

Connect output R of the voiceworks to input 2 of the G.

Set the G to record and connect input 1 to track 9 and connect input 2 to track 10. Tracks 9 and 10 are paired so the stereo output of the Voiceworks will be recorded.

Pull all faders down, except the fader of track 1.

Press RTZ to put your song in the 0:00.000 position.

Press record & play and check the meters for signal values. If it's too loud or too soft, adjust volume and retry.

This way, you still have your unprocessed original vocal on track 1 (in mono) and the processed vocal on track 9&10 (in stereo).

Mix to your liking.

Done! :)

Another way is to "play" the harmony buttons on the front of the Voiceworks during mixdown. It takes a few run-throughs of the song, but switching the harmonies in and out works for me. It's also possible to come up with some nice freaky oddness by accident when using this method.
