Now Vocalists Have A Stompbox, Too!

The new VE-20 has been designed from the bottom up for vocalists, featuring some of the world's finest vocal-effects technology. With the VE-20, you can instantly add smooth vocal layers and harmonies to your singing, realtime pitch-correction and you can even let your creative side shine with special effects such as 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.

Take Your Vocals To A Whole New Level
VE-20 is crammed with lots of essential, exquisite effects for vocalists such as Reverb, Delay, Dynamics, Chorus, and more. In the past, these effects have been somewhat difficult for vocalists to have control of in live situations, but the VE-20 provides an incredibly easy user interface enabling vocalists to have complete control over their vocal sound. Just dial up your favorite setting and sing — no complex programming required. VE-20 is a user-friendly vocal effects processor, even for first timers. However, if you feel like rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands a little dirty, the VE-20 has a variety of more advanced editing tools as well.

Harmony Factory
Want some harmony, but don't know anyone who can sing it properly? The VE-20's got you covered. Just select the harmony interval of your choice, or even lay down multi-part stacks such as upper third and lower fifth, and save them for instant recall. You can also beef up your vocals with the VE-20's Double Track feature. Just as with the effects, there's no need for any complex programming, and you don’t need to input notes from a keyboard as you would with a Vocoder — just sing and let the VE-20 take care of the rest!

Phrase Looper
Inherited from BOSS’s popular RE-20XL Loop Station, the Phrase Looper offers 38 seconds of mono record time to loop and layer phrases, and you can do it all in real time onstage. Whatever the vocal style, this tool is sure to wow audiences!

Special FX
In addition to its harmony and pitch-correction tools, the VE-20 offers an impressive and expressive collection of special effects including Electric (made famous by artists like Cher and Black-Eyed Peas), Robot, Strobe (rotary), Distortion, Chorus and Reverb.

Solid Design
With the same solid metal construction as all other BOSS stompboxes, the VE-20 is certainly built to last. Its footprint is identical to other BOSS Twin-Series pedals, ensuring compatibility with existing multi-pedal BOSS pedalboards and travel cases.
