A vocal effects stompbox that adds layers, loops, harmonies, effects, and lots of fun to your singing.

Who says stompboxes are just for guitarists? The easy-to-use BOSS VE-20 has been designed from the ground up for singers, featuring some of the finest vocal-effects technology on the market. With the click of a footswitch, you can instantly add lush vocal layers and harmonies to your singing, add realtime pitch-correction, and you can show your creative side with special effects like distortion, radio, and strobe. You can even create loops and layers in real time with the onboard Phrase Looper. Perform anywhere with the VE-20 since it runs on AC or battery power (sold separately).

Simple quality
The BOSS VE-20 vocal effects pedal takes your voice to a whole new level with essential effects in an incredibly user-friendly interface that lets you take total control of your vocal sound. Simply dial in your favorite setting and sing with no programming required. The VE-20 is a practical vocal effects processor even for first-timers. Of course, if you want to roll your sleeves up and create, the Boss VE-20 has a variety of editing tools onboard too.

Harmony factory
Add lush harmonies to your lead vocals instantly as you sing. Select the harmony interval of your choice, or create multipart stacks, such as upper third and lower fifth, and save them for instant recall. You can also thicken your vocals with Double Track. Best of all, this BOSS pedal is incredibly easy to use: there's no need for programming, and you don't need to input notes from a keyboard as you do with a Vocoder; you simply sing and let the VE-20 vocal pedal do the rest.

Phrase loop
Sing, record, loop, and overdub with the onboard Phrase Looper, inherited from Boss's popular RE-20XL Loop Station. You get 38 seconds of mono record time to loop and layer phrases, and you can do it all in real time onstage. From doo-wop to human-beatbox, this tool will wow audiences.

Special effects
In addition to its harmony and pitch-correction tools, the BOSS VE-20 vocal pedal offers a colorful and expressive collection of special effects, including: electric, robot, strobe, distortion, chorus, and reverb.

Road-tough design
With the same solid-metal construction as other BOSS stompboxes, the VE-20 is built to last. Its footprint is identical to Boss Twin-Series pedals, ensuring that it will fit perfectly into existing multi-pedal BOSS pedal boards and travel cases.

Best Tool in the Box


from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Boss VE-20 Vocal Effects Processor:

I tested them all...Digitech, TC Helicon, etc. and this thing wins hands down. First off, no instrument required although I play guitar. The harmonies are believable and get noticed at gigs. The enhnacer and the dubler add such presence and depth to my vocals. Idid a quick demo on my 16 track and it was noise, great headroom. Even the robotic effect and strobe have a decent sound for the out there music. Bottom line...get one of these things if you want to enhance your solo or group performances. You can even do mic checks with the looper without being at the mic. -

Very Good w/some minor limitations


from Millbury, MA

Comments about Boss VE-20 Vocal Effects Processor:

This is a great product! It is especially useful for pitch corrrection and doubling. It creates a very effective two/three part harmony as long as you stay with the primary chords. If you are playing an Asus2, it will not recognize it, and you have to go in and program it accordingly. I did a demo on my Fosteax MR16/cd, one with the VE-20, and one without, and the difference is very noticeable. The VE-20 adds mountains of depth to the vocals, and a very passable harmony where I spent the time programming it. There is a Cathedral setting that was fantastic when it is just me and an acoustic. The doubling with pitch control boosted the vocals to a level I was not expecting. This could be a good tool if you have a decent voice and are looking for some "help" with your vocals. I use a GR-20, a VG-99, an Alesis SR18 in my current recording set-up, and only wish I had this processor sooner. Buy it, you won't regret it.
