 Simone uses TC Helicon VoiceLive 2!

…”With the VoiceLive 2 I can completely build my own vocal sound. There are a lot of options and settings that can always guarantee a different sound with studio quality. I think the greatest thing is that you can have your effects with you (the ones you use during rehearsals) everywhere just by bringing along a small pedal board like the VoiceLive 2. I think in the beginning when you play your music, you are the only one who knows in exactly which part of your song a delay would work best or what the reverb has to be. Of course, when you use the VoiceLive 2 you need to see the look on the sound engineer’s faces! The audience always seems to like a “one-man-band” musician that sounds like a complete orchestra. I have always found everything I needed in the VoiceLive 2″…

ESP Cables - Essential SoundSimone uses Essential Sound Products


Simone Vignola & Essential SoundI would have never thought that the frequencies and the harmonics that I’ve always searched for could depend on a power cable. Thanks to the ESP power cord you will obtain higher volume, an incredibly clean sound, some excellent brilliance, and all those low frequencies that you forgot you had!
I simply can’t do without it both for studio sessions and live sets!”
