Add a full range of studio polish to your voice

Echo is just one of the things that the BOSS VE-1 Vocal Echo lets you do. In fact, it comes loaded with a smattering of cool effects and processors, making it easy to add a touch of studio magic to your live vocals. If you'd like to smooth out your vocals just a touch, just hit the VE-1's Enhance button and you'll be rewarded with a healthy dose of studio polish. Hit it again and you'll add in subtle but effective automatic pitch correction, which not only help you stay in tune in loud environments in which you can't hear yourself as well as you'd like, it even lets you dial in hard-tuned electronic-sounding vocals.

A perfect vocal tool onstage or in the studio

Great vocals aren't just important onstage, they're absolutely essential in the studio as well, just ask any Sweetwater recording specialist. That's why BOSS designed the VE-1 Vocal Echo to be as flexible as possible. To begin with, the VE-1 runs on four AA batteries and still provide reliable phantom power to your favorite condenser microphone. Easy-to-reach buttons also let you store and recall your favorite settings. On the flip side, USB connectivity allows the VE-1 to double as an audio interface, so you can take everything it has to offer into the studio.

VE-1 Vocal Echo Effects Module Features:
  • An easy way to create and use high-quality vocal effects and processing anywhere
  • Enjoy a user interface that's so simple to use that you don't need to understand effects
  • Choose from 7 echo types and tweak them to perfection
  • Double button lets you instantly create the classic double-tracked vocal sound
  • Enhance function automatically controls dynamics and lets you apply subtle pitch correction as you sing
  • Select pitch correction ranging from subtle to hard-tuned, electronic-sounding voices
  • Three memory slots let you store and quickly recall your favorite settings
  • XLR mic input with phantom power that's available even when running on batteries
  • USB audio function lets you capture processed vocal sounds into your computer
  • Runs on 4 x AA batteries or optional PSA-series AC adapter
When you need great-sounding vocals to go, trust the BOSS VE-1 Vocal Echo!

Usable Effects

This is an excellent product for vocals. This is the first one I've used that actually adjusts the echo effect to the point where it enhances the vocal without an obvious echo. I use it in my studio for almost all vocal tracks. Reasonable price too! You'll like this one.

Boss VE-1 Definitely Helps

Since I've started using the VE-1 in the band people have commented on the clarity and quality of my vocals. Pretty funny actually since we have a full-time lead singer and I only sing backup and a few lead vocals.... I'm thinking it's just a matter of time before he orders one. The enhance feature works really well with the reverb and delay. and the ability to control the tone and volume of the unit allows you to tweak your sound without going over to the board. There are a few things I'm not crazy about - 1. Somehow Boss figured out to engineer the pedal to force me to buy their proprietary power supply even though I have about 20 with the same spec including a few Boss-brand ones. 2. The stored presets are difficult to change during a song. You have to hold down the pedal for several seconds for each change (or buy their relatively expensive external pedal). It's hard to watch the the tiny light on the interface change colors while singing and playing. 3. Storing a preset requires holding down the memory button until it changes colors and blinking patterns - quite a strange interface since it's very hard to tell what the button is doing while your finger is covering it at that point. - anyway - relatively minor quibbles for very good technology.

builit-in Blutooth receiver would make this product ROCK

BEST battery-operated vocal box ever made! EXCEPT needs a blutooth receiver in it to allow singers to send backing tracks into the unit then output a mix containing BOTH the flat track AND (= with) the processed vocal.... If not bluetooth then an 1/8" audio input jack to allow singers to play (and mix) backing tracks [and/or flat guitar or any other instrument] THRU the box, then output a mix containing both the flat backing track (or flat guitar, etc.) AND the processed vocal. Need more effects pedals tailored to the growing solo-singer (track/karaoke) market.
