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...

A great tool!
Thib H 31.03.2020
Lots of possibilities. Advice if you are looking for harmonization: create your own patches, where you disable all other preprocessings (reverb, chorus, ...) and keep only harmonization.

Sole drawback: the pedal would benefit from a dry output and a wet output, allowing sound engineers to mix themselves between both sounds during a live perf.

Good to cut feedback
Reminiscence 17.04.2020
• Good to add effects on vocals during rehearsals.
• With the EQ, you can cut one frequency at a time to see which one is creating a feedback and cut it to stop it!
• For gigs, it's good if you have specific settings that change from song to song or during songs themselves.
• If you just like one specific setup (a bit of delay, for example), it might be easier to ask that setup to the sound engineer.

Always good as a backup anyway!

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.

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.
