VE-20 Vocal Performer Pedal Review

July 23, 2013
Posted in: Reviews

The VE-20 Vocal Performer from Boss is a powerful vocal processor for singers looking to add high quality special effects or layers to their singing. This review will cover the various features of this product, to help you decide whether it’s right for you.



VE-20 Vocal Performer Overview

The VE-20 Vocal Performer contains two pedals and a user-friendly control panel which controls the effects sent through the box. To activate an effect, just set it on the control panel and then click the foot pedal while singing. Reverb, Delay, Chorus, and Dynamic are among the standard effects offered, which are extremely useful for making your voice sound the best it can during performance. Other effects offered allow you to tailor to a specific style (Jazz, Rock, Pop, Electronic, etc…) in real time.  Also included is a Phrase Looper, special effects, and pitch correction tools.


The biggest benefit of the VE-20 is it’s ease of use. The display is large and clear, and no programming is required to use it. Just set the effect and you’re off. The versatility it offers is helpful in performances, recordings, and for musical experimentation. Change the character of your voice with just the tap of a foot. The breadth of options it offers allows you to create new styles or sounds in your music to make it sound professional and unique. And because the VE-20 can run on AC or batteries, it’s easily portable. Phantom power is also offered if you’re using condenser mics.


The creative possibilities are nearly endless on the VE-20, with applications only limited by your imagination. Here’s a list of the features you can play around with:

- Ability to add 3-part harmonies and layers to create density

- Distortion, Radio, and Strobe special effects

- A Double-Track Feature

- Dynamics, Chorus, Reverb, Delay, and Harmony effects

- Pitch-correction in real time

- A Phrase Looper with 38 seconds (mono) of recording time.
