BOSS has announced the VE-5 Vocal Performer, a compact and mobile personal effects processor and looper for vocalists.

BOSS VE-5 (red)

Featuring a simple-to-use tabletop design that can be easily attached to a mic stand for performing, the VE-5 is perfect for singers, rappers, beatboxers, webcasters, and anyone that wants to have fun with processing vocal sounds.

The VE-5 inherits high-quality effects from BOSS’ popular VE-20 Vocal Performer pedal, including reverb, delay, double/harmony, and dynamics processing. Also on board is realtime pitch correction and special effects processing via the TONE/SFX category. A built-in phrase looper lets users capture vocal performances with effects and loop them on the fly for exciting real-time presentations.

One-touch operation makes it ideal for singers, even those not familiar with FX pedals, to select sounds and turn effects and harmonies on/off with ease. In addition, users can store three favorite settings and access them quickly with dedicated buttons. The phrase looper is easily controlled from the front panel as well.

VE-5 Vocal Performer features

  • Easy one-touch operation.
  • Six types of high-quality vocal effects inherited from the VE-20 – Reverb, Delay, Double/Harmony, Dynamics, Pitch Correct, and Tone/SFX.
  • Phrase Looper adds impact to real-time vocal performances, including harmonizing and layered beatboxing.
  • Favorite Sound function provides immediate access to preferred sounds.
  • Ideal for live performance, as well as tabletop setups; mic-stand mount included.
  • Internal microphone for instant gratification.
  • Aux input for blending external music.

Short links for December 3rd, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

Designing Sound TV

# Designing Sound TV

Miguel Isaza introduces Designing Sound TV, Television for Sound Designers.

Could you imagine the concept of television re-imagined for sound designers only? How would that be?

How would be a Field Recording TV channel? or can you imagine a show where you can see how the sound of a recent film was done? or what about watching some channels where you can find other guys like you recording sounds outside the world? What if you could watch interviews with different sound designers each night while you drink a cup coffee?

Well, I’ve created something like that, but using the Internet. It’s called Designing Sound TV, a new website packed with lots videos about sound for films, video games, tv, and more. There you can find all kind of stuff on sound design, field reording, foley, mixing, and more.

# Hiphop Experience vol.4
Dmitry Vasilyev aka Cyberworm brings the fourth part in series of free hiphop drum loops (36 loops in stereo wav format, 24bit/44.1kHz, 43 MB).

# Music Kits #1: DIY guitar effect pedal kits

Music Thing is back! (though Tom notes that “Normal service will not, I’m afraid, be resumed…”)

After almost two years since the last blog post Tom Whitwell returns with a list of 23 DIY guitar effect pedal kits.

Music Thing DIY guitar effect pedal kits

Over the last couple of years, I’ve spent a few evenings building DIY guitar effects. It's fun to build things that you can use. If you want to get started, one of the hardest things is buying components. Try to buy a 10Ω resistor from Farnell, and you’re faced with a choice of 345 items. So, starting out buying a kit is a good idea. At least you’ll know the parts are right, even if when your soldering isn’t.

However, not many people sell kits. Despite the potential markup on a handful of bulk components, the customer service is – presumably – a nightmare. Here are 23 companies who will sell you complete component kits for guitar effects – many more people produce PCBs, or sell finished pedals. Stay tuned for similar lists on synths/noise boxes and tube amplifiers.

# Home Recording Tactics

Home Recording Tactics

Jon Tidey at Audio Geek Zine shares some useful tips on editing & workflow as part of a series of 9 interviews with recording engineers from around the world.

What is Home Recording Tactics? This is a collection of audio interviews with 9 hard working, successful home studio engineers (including me). The interviews were led by Joe Gilder of Home Studio Corner. He got these guys to share all their secrets on a variety of home recording topics.

# Virtual Theremin Made with Kinect; Real Thereminists Will Make it Useful

Create Digital Music’s Peter Kirn writes:

Who says technology has to move fast and die young? Leon Theremin may have been a full century ahead of his time, before computers, before transistors, before jet engines or atomic power or rockets.

ReacTable creator Martin Kaltenbrunner has a virtual Theremin prototype built with Microsoft’s depth-sensing, 3D Kinect camera. And what he really needs is some players of the real Theremin to help develop it.

SoundCloud Record

# Capture And Share Your Sounds

SoundCloud’s iPhone app makes it easy to record and share your sounds from anywhere.

The Record button will make it easy for you to capture all kinds of sounds right on SoundCloud & with the iPhone app and share them from anywhere to everywhere on the web: your website, social network profiles or simply between friends & family.

# TouchOSC for Android released

Friends of hand-held devices not sporting the omnipresent “i” prefix take note: TouchOSC for Android has been published on the Android Market! And it’s free. Free as in beer.
