Description

Details

The BOSS VE-8 Acoustic Singer Vocal and Guitar Effects Processor is a one-stop shop for everything a singer/acoustic guitar player could want - not only for live applications but also when practising and/or recording too.

Vocals

When it comes to accessing studio-ready vocal sounds, the VE-8 makes the process very easy and very efficient. Simply plug your microphone into the XLR input, dial up your desired level of ambience, add a touch of clarity to brighten the vocals using the Enhance control, and you're already onto a winner. If you're looking for a more stylised effect, there's a plethora of options available to add electronic sounds, distortion, and even radio-voiced tones to make your vocal performances more elaborate.

Creating textured vocal harmonies when playing solo allows you to elevate your performance to new heights. The VE-8 has an automatic harmony functions that detects chords that you're playing, as well as the key, then generates the appropriate harmony to accompany your vocals. There are hybrid and fixed harmony modes that offer versatility for differing performing and recording situations. The vocal doubling effect adds a fuller, more substantial presence to your vocals as and when you desire.

Across the rear panel of the unit, you'll find guitar and XLR mic inputs (with switchable phantom power), as well as an Aux input to connect an external device for playing backing music to perform along with. If you're performing live, stereo XLR balanced outputs can be fed directly to your PA, whilst stereo 1/4-inch outputs can send separate signals to stage monitors or your acoustic amp. With on-board three-band EQ and low-cut filters available on both vocal and guitar channels, you can even send separate outputs for external miking flexibility - perfect! The USB output means the VE-8 is your dream audio interface for both guitar and vocals, allowing you to record directly into your DAW of choice.

Guitar

The dedicated guitar channel on the VE-8 is equipped with a host of features that are designed to bring the best out of your acoustic when plugged in. The Acoustic Resonance control restores the natural timbre of your model so that it sounds just as exquisite as your vocals. Built-in effects are on-hand that allow you to shape and sculpt your tone, including: Reverb, Chorus, Octave, Mod Delay, and more. The tuner ensures that you need never stray too far out of tune during the most enthusiastic of performances. The internal phase switch and notch filter effectively cuts out any feedback issues with minimal fuss.

The VE-8 has an internal looper, with a massive 80 seconds of recording available for both vocals and guitar. Therefore, you can record and loop independent vocal overdubs, percussive rhythm tracks, chord progressions, fills - whatever you wish. Thanks to the intuitive control layout, the VE-8 is easy to get to grips with, and with a wide range of connectivity options to expand your control further, The VE-8 is the perfect partner for any session, jam, or gig.
