First thoughts on using the TC-Helicon Live 2 on Saxophone

This past weekend I visited with Don Kelly in Houston Texas. Don had recently purchased the TC-Helicon Live 2 for use with his saxophone and flute. The TC-Helicon is designed for voice harmony and effects however it works nicely on saxophone and flute. I was able to experiment with it for about 15 minutes. Don had already created a few setups that were tailored to sax and flute. The effects and harmony capabilities were awesome. The effects were even more awesome when listening in headphones. I definitely plan to add one of these to my wish list.

Have you used the TC-Helicon with saxophone or flute? If yes, please share your experiences.


  1. Hi, Paul:
    As a player, I use both the Akai EWI and Yamaha WX7 quite a lot, but I’m especially interested in unique effects for sax & flute as well. I would love to hear more details about your experience using the TC-Helicon and how it harmonizes sax lines, etc.
    All the best,
