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...

Robust BOSS quality

Boss effects units have been valued the world over for their robust workmanship and high quality. The VE-20 is no exception and features housing typical of the BOSS Twin Pedal series, easily fitting into effects cases like the BOSS BCB-60.

  • XLR / Jack input with phantom power (for condenser microphones), level indicator and low cut
  • 2x XLR outputs, switchable to stereo outout, 2x mono outputs or mono / dry (effects signal / direct signal separated), and phone / line output jack (stereo or mono)
  • Easy to operate with display and rotary encoder
  • 80 Storage locations (30 presets, 50 user) selectable via rotary encoder or foot pedal (up / down)
  • Soundcheck mode (set effects or P.A. Soundcheck with looped vocal phrase)
  • Left foot pedal: effect on / off OR looper control (record, play, overdub, stop) OR patches down
  • Right foot pedal: switch on one or more effects blocks (freely adjustable) OR patches upwards
  • Battery operated (6x AA batteries, 7 hours), or optional power supply: Boss PSA-230, Article Nr 102842

Six effects blocks at the same time:

  • 1) DYNAMIC: Compressor, De-Esser and Enhancer simultaneously
  • 2) PITCH CORRECTION: Pitch correction with extreme setting ("Cher" effect), chromatic correction or by key, female / male vocals conversion, robot voice
  • 3) TONE / FX: Preamp, Distortion, Radio, Strobe (Rotary), Chorus or Flanger selectable
  • 4) DOUBLE / HARMONY: Two additional voices possible, Double Track (also converts female /male vocals incl. octave), or intelligent harmonizer (choose interval + key), combinations possible, e.g. original voice + doubling as female vocals one octave above + fifth below
  • 5) DELAY: Echo with various parameters
  • 6) REVERB: Reverb (Ambience, Room, Reverb 1, Reverb 2, Plate) with various parameters

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.

Very good Harmoniser

David3021, 08.03.2015
When I first bought this I was interested in the harmoniser. As a Sax/Flute player I had lots of ideas in my head which I thought could be realised by the Boss VE-20. Ok it's for singers but woodwind players use mikes as well and the basic idea is the same. The octave generates a pretty good Bari sax and the diatonic thirds, fifths etc work well. Most of the presets are useful and the looper is good quality. This is one of the few devices on the market that work without having to plug in a guitar or keyboard to enable the harmonies and the fx are good. Boss are excellent at making good solid equipment that works well. If it has a downside it is the wealth of choice. I think most people would be happy with less presets and simpler programming.
