OVERVIEW

Perform live with studio-quality voice and acoustic guitar processing, impressive real-time vocal harmonies, looping and more.

For singer/songwriters who play acoustic guitar, it’s a competitive, crowded world out there. The VE-8 Acoustic Singer delivers that extra edge you need to stand out and shine, supporting you with professional BOSS sound every time you perform. Simple to use, the VE-8 provides studio-quality voice and guitar processing plus impressive real-time harmonies and looping in one compact, go-everywhere package. With such great sound and powerful creative features at your command, you’re destined to bring down the house everywhere you play.

Sing
The VE-8 makes it easy to get professional, studio-level vocal sounds right away. Just plug your mic into the XLR input and dial up some nice ambience, add clarity and control with the Enhance feature, and more. You can even call up hard-tuned electronic voice sounds, distortion, and radio voice tones to bring some modern edge to your acoustic performances.

Play
With the VE-8’s dedicated guitar channel, your acoustic axe will sound just as great as your vocals. Acoustic Resonance magically restores your natural guitar sound, eliminating the sterile piezo "quack" that plagues typical undersaddle pickups used in plugged-in acoustics. Reverb and chorus are on hand too, plus cool BOSS effects like Octave, Mod Delay and more. There’s a built-in tuner as well, a must-have tool for stage performing. And with the phase switch and notch filter, you have fingertip access for killing any feedback issues the instant they arise.

Harmonize
In a solo performance, the ability to create natural vocal harmonies turns heads and elevates your tunes to new sonic levels. Using the VE-8, creating these harmonies live has never been easier. The automatic harmony function detects the chords and key you play with your guitar, and then generates the correct harmony as you sing. Hybrid and fixed harmony modes are available too, giving you all types of versatility for different performing and recording situations. There’s also a nice vocal doubling effect, a useful feature for adding fullness and presence to your voice as needed.

Loop
The specially designed looper in the VE-8 sounds great and is ready to support your performance whenever you need it. Just use the dedicated footswitch to lay down a percussive rhythm, chord progression, vocal counterpoint, or whatever you like. You can easily select your guitar, voice, or both for looping via panel buttons or an optional footswitch.

Connect
The VE-8’s rear panel has a guitar input and XLR mic input with switchable phantom power, plus an Aux input to connect a smartphone or other device for backing music. Stereo XLR balanced outputs provide a direct feed to the house PA, while stereo 1/4-in. outputs let you send a separate signal to stage monitors or an acoustic amp. Both the vocal and guitar channels feature a three-band EQ and low-cut filter for shaping the tone to suit the venue, and it’s even possible to send the two channels to separate outputs for external mixing flexibility. And via USB, you can use the VE-8 as a direct recording interface with your favorite DAW software.

Control
With the VE-8’s grab-and-go panel controls, it’s simple to dial in sounds and settings as you play. After creating a setup you like for a particular song, just save it in one of 50 memory locations for instant recall while performing. The VE-8's three built-in footswitches control a variety of live functions, and one or more optional footswitches can be connected for further control if needed.

    Comments about Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer Multi-Effects Pedal:

    The build quality on this unit is very sturdy. Most of all the sound quality is second to none. Let me just say it's not a TC Helicon unit and it's not meant to sound the same as such. (Kindve like the difference between Martin and Taylor). Anyway, this unit packs quite a punch the harmonies sound very realistic and the guitar and vocal enhancements on this unit sound absolutely amazing! What really cool is that the majority of its functions are controlled via rotary encoders that are nice and accessible as opposed to the TC units that are mostly software menu driven. So if you want quick access to all of your functionality this is the way to go! Can't say enough good about this unit except for.....Buy it!! You won't be sorry! Awsome pedal!!!

      Comments about Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer Multi-Effects Pedal:

      I got this effect a day before my gig and after cramming the night and practicing the audience told me after the gig that I sounded better with just one day of messing with the system.

      For your guitar sound, you get reverb and a separate effect – nominally chorus, but you also get tremolo, delay, phaser and more – which sound as good as some individual stompboxes. There's also an Acoustic Resonance knob that enhance the sound of my martin guitar.

      Vocals get a similarly impressive spread, including an Enhance effect, which improves clarity with what sounds like a combination of compression and EQ, More impressively is you getting doubling or five different harmony types.

      As for the looper, I am still learning to use this type effect. I guess it takes a lot of practice to master the art of looping.

        Comments about Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer Multi-Effects Pedal:

        I used the Pedal for the first time at a gig on Saturday. Very cool sound from both the acoustic guitar and vocals. Harmony is good but probably not the best feature. The only complaint is that I have big feet and it was difficult to depress the harmony button with my shoes on as it is too close to the other buttons. I took my shoes off and all was well.

          If you are a solo act that travels, you won't wake up with your gear against your cheek and you can carry more shirts to sell! Love Boss!
