Expand-a-Lung

Breathing Resistance Exerciser

The "EXPAND-A-LUNG" inspiratory / expiratory breathing resistance exerciser is a breakthrough product for respiratory training. Research supports that this type of exercise significantly improves the strength of respiratory muscles, and increases the volume of lung oxygen ventilation. The end result is deeper, easier and better breathing for superior performance. It is a fact that breathing resistance exercise will develop stronger lungs, and this in turn can provide an endurance advantage for any sport - including singing.

TC-Helicon VoiceLive 2

Floor Based Vocals Processor

VoiceLive 2 is a very straight forward and easy to use floor accessible vocal effects device. If you are looking for an all-in-one solution for professional sound and live effects for singing.

I take the VoiceLive 2 through its paces showing you the default presets, editing and saving my own presets, creating live show archives and more.

Vocal Coach Rating

Overall Impression:

Awesome effects pedal for singers that needs some input from active pro singers on what they need most and stick to that. It could use some trimming of the default patches.

PROS:
Easy to use interface, a wide range of effects are possible in infinite combinations.

CONS:
One cannot delete the default presets permanently. There are too many default presets that are not geared for live singing.
