Loaded with six fun and exciting vocal effect types

Whether you're the lead singer in a rock band, a street-performing beatboxer, or webcaster looking for a cool way to enhance your voice, you're going to have a blast with your BOSS VE-5 vocal processor. That's because BOSS packed the VE-5 with six of their best vocal effects types, including Reverb, Delay, Double/Harmony, Dynamics, Pitch Correct, and Tone/SFX. Tone/SFX alone gives you access to Distortion, Radio, and Strobe effects. The Pitch Correct mode provides you with that iconic hard-tuning effect. On top of that, the VE-5 gives you an amazing assortment of effects presets. That makes it easy to discover the wide range of enhancements you can add to your voice with a BOSS VE-5.

Onboard phrase looping lets you get innovative with your live show

If you've ever experienced the cool effects and performance possibilities a single vocalist can pull off with a simple looper, then you can't help but be excited about the VE-5's built-in phase sampler. This looper lets you layer your voice to create harmonies and duet-style vocals in real time. It's also great for creating vocal percussion loops and adding other rhythmical dimensions to your live performances. Any way you use it, you're sure to find an infinite number of uses for the VE-5's onboard phrase looper.

Killer bonus features let you use your effects in creative ways

Set it on your studio desk or clip it to your microphone stand onstage, there are tons of ways to put your BOSS VE-5 vocal effects processor to work for you. It's completely battery powered (optional AC adapter not included), giving you up to nine hours of performance time with just four AAs. Hook up optional footswitches, and you can take control of some of the VE-5's functions in real-time. You can also plug in an external stereo sound source, making it easy to add backing tracks to your solo set. And since BOSS already designed the VE-5 to be as portable as possible, they even gave it an onboard microphone, so you can experiment with your vocal effects anywhere, without even packing along a mic.

Working with vocal harmonies

I use it a lot when singing 2 part harmony , Everly Brothers, sounds great , the effects are real goods , reverb and delays. I think if I were to use more harmony parts i would get something like maybe a boss ve-2 where your harmonies are with a guitar.
