TC Helicon VoiceLive Play



Malekko E616 Analog Delay

I use the TC HELICON as the first pedal in the chain because it has a pre amp built into it which is very important when the sound source is coming from a horn using an XLR cable. The pre amp in the TC HELICON can boost the audio signal to your liking. The cable coming from the microphone is an XLR cable into the TC then a converter cable XLR to quarter inch out of the TC into your pedals, and then you can run quarter inch into everything else and then to the sound in the house. The TC has amazing reverb, harmonizer and all kind of effects.

After releasing an album under the name The Arnold Lee Quartet, in January 2012, T@NE moved toward music that incorporates more electronica, rock and pop. His interest in electronic music was influenced by guitarist/composer Rafiq Bhatia, a fellow graduate of Oberlin.

I use the MALEKKO E616 as the second pedal in the chain running out of the TC HELICON VOICELIVEPLAY. The MALEKKO is amazing; you can create some really incredible sounds and change oscillation rate, the amount of delay mix you want with the sound source and many other amazing affects.

The important thing is to try out different mixtures of pedals to get what you like!"


When You See "Example at 1:39 to 6:21 I'm using a combination of delay (and pretty sure some reverb) from the TC HELICON and I think some added (effects) (oscillation) from the MALEKKO E616.

Rock Joint "Example at 2:57 to 4:30 in the video you can hear me using the delay on the TC HELICON with the decay turned up to 100 to keep the notes going and then I’m using the MALEKKO E616 to alter the sounds and oscillation to create FX ."

"Example at 44 seconds to 1 minute and 30 seconds in video you can hear me using the delay on the TC with the decay turned up to 100 to keep the notes going and then I’m using the MALEKKO to alter the sounds and oscillation to create FX ."
