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