Boss VE-20 Vocal Performer

Vocal effects device - Brilliantly simple!

Thanks to the VE-20, singers and speakers finally have the possibility to easily enhance their voices with high-quality effects: Compressor, Enhancer, De-Esser, Harmonist, Chorus, Reverb, Echo, etc. in many combinations - simply select one of the 80 memory locations with the knob or the footswitches, and you can create your own sounds! Thanks to the clever footswitches, Reverb + Echo have the option of remaining always active, while you blend harmonically into the chorus.

Harmonizer

Add one or two harmonic voices to your vocals - such as upper third and lower fifth - just select the interval and you're ready to go! No need to input instrument signals. You can also thicken your vocals using Double Track and exciting functions such as female / male vocal conversion with octave shift!

Looper with Overdubs

Sing, record, loop, add more vocal overdubs...in such manner is it possible to create a whole choir or a complete beatbox song passage by passage! The built-in looper offers 40 seconds of recording time (mono) and endless overdubs.

Special Effects

In addition to the 2-voice harmony- and pitch correction tools, the VE-20 offers exciting and inspiring effects for vocals and speech: Electric (made famous by Cher and the Black Eyed Peas), Robot- and Radio, Strobe (rotary), Distortion, Chorus, Flanger, Echo, Reverb, etc...

Your bread and butter but not a pedal you'll use forever
Adambassman007, 16.05.2019
This is a really good pedal. There are a lot of useful features and a lot of needless and unnecessary features that you'll never use.

The ability to make your own settings, save them, and change between different levels of reverb, compression, delay and other effects is great. I use it so I don't have to communicate to sound engineers about my desired vocal effects. It can cause a bit of feedback if reverb/delay are up too high but this can be fixed with a little tweak of the EQ.

Phantom power is also very handy if you have a mic that needs it, otherwise you can just use any passive mic.

It's built like a tank and the reverb and delay sound good for the price.

In summary,
I would recommend this pedal to a friend, 100%. I don't think it's the be all and end all but it's a great way to have more control over your vocals at a live performance.

Absolutely love this!
Darrell, 15.05.2013
This sturdy built effects pedal has so much to play with. It has such a great range of voices and the difference between them and a straight through mic is amazing. The harmony can really lift up a weak singer and if not overdone can sound really cool. I love playing with the loop effect as well.

The multi-FX concept has been around in various forms since the mid 80s - It is therefore no surprise that there is a huge range of hardware available.
