roland VE-20 is Boss!

got the VE-20 delivered and 20 minutes later I was noodling around with it. easy to use and figure out. very good sounds, definitely good enough for a live band setup. you can edit settings and create your own stable of sounds. good for us dumb old musicians who want a little help with vocals.


I bought this unit for my home studio. For $250 I didn't expect much. I knew it wouldn't come near the super pricey units, but OMG! For what I use it for it has done the job marvously. Many of my clients and potentials ask for it at the door. Thank you Boss for producing this unit. Anyone complaining about this unit is just being nit picky. I absolutely got wht I paid for and then some. Truth is I'm surprised its price isn't higher.

A Must Have

I've had this tool in the toolbox for about 6 months now and it still amazes me what it can do. The harmonies are believable with a little tweaking and especially realistic in stereo. The Autotune feature will impress the younger generation. I use it primarily for small live gigs where I don't want to tote a rack of effects but want some nice reverbs, delays, and harmonies. The looper requires some practice but it offers some unique opportunities for layering if you're a solo/duo act. For the money it can't be beat. Only wished it had come with a AC adaptor...otherwise a great little box of fire...gues that's why it's fire engine red. Get one!

Absolutely Amazing

I'm an average singer at best. I spent almost 4 hours singing through this pedal today after pulling it out of the box. I am amazed at the fullness and richness it has added. This pedal doesn't make you sound great on it's own, instead it rewards you for singing well. If you can stay in tune, it will take your voice to the highest professional level. I wish I had this MANY years ago.
