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.
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.
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...
