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

Easy To Use !!!!

I have a collection of harmonizers and never was satisfied with any of them. The units always had an issue that made it difficult to use. Not any more !!!! My wife and I sing in a gospel group and use accompaniment tracks. Our problem was we had to hold down the pedal on our other BossVE20 unit then switch keys with seemed like eternity. This unit you just turn the knob and presto you have the key you need and hit exit. Also setting the amount of harmony you need is a snap. You can also store your favorite settings but since this is so easy to change we didn't even bother. We didn't bother with the effects since our powered mixer is already equipped with those settings. If you need something simple and easy to use this is it. As always the harmony is decent sounding and someday they may perfect the sound quality. As for now this is our best solution for a quality sounding vocal processor.

cool, but not a ve-20

Pros..Light weight ,has added aux. input and clever mic stand mount. Quality is equal to ve-20. Has footswitch jack allowing 2 assignable functions of your choice.Cons.. The built in condenser mic makes it more toy-ish than pro. But what keeps it from a 4 1/2 star rating, has only two part harmony....your voice and one harmony unlike ve-20 which has three part. For some, this will be a deal breaker....

I agree !!

Boss dropped the ball by getting rid of the 3 part harmony! I called Roland and they had no idea why they did it. What were they thinking?
