OVERVIEW

Fine-tune your effects control.

The Voco-Loco is a foot-controlled effects loop that enables the lead vocalist, sax or trumpet player to incorporate guitar effects pedals into the signal path, just like an electric guitarist adds effects for soloing.

The design begins with a state-of-the-art mic preamp that is designed to accept both a standard dynamic microphone or a condenser by activating the built-in phantom power supply. A great sounding two band EQ with low and high frequency shelving makes it easy to add warmth and shimmer. The signal is then sent to the guitar pedals via a transformer isolated hi-Z effects loop circuit that is equipped with individual send & receive controls to optimize signal-to-noise and reduce distortion. A tone control on the return path lets you smooth the sound of pedals that may be overly bright and the blend control lets you mix the original 'dry' signal with the 'wet' effect to set the perfect mix.

Simply plug your mic into the Voco-Loco via the XLR input, connect your effects pedals using standard ¼" guitar cables, and then send the output from the Voco-Loco to the input on your mixer. Before the song begins, choose which effects you want on and - when you are ready - activate the loop using the right hand footswitch. A second footswitch serves double-duty as either a mute switch to turn off the mic between sets or as a 100% wet effects loop for special situations where you may not want any of the clean signal to pass through.

With the Voco-Loco in your signal chain, you can add delay or reverb, maybe a touch of distortion or even a special effect like a wah-wah to enhance your solo performance. The options are only limited by your imagination and desire to stand out from the crowd!

  • Add guitar effects pedals to vocals or instruments

    Comments about Radial Engineering Voco-Loco Vocal Preamp and Effect Switcher:

    After doing an extensive amount of research, I decided on the Voco-Loco for my setup (even though the name is a little ridiculous). I am a saxophonist that uses effects pedals in my live setup and I felt it was time to move on from my this sounding ART mic preamp/compressor that I had been previously using live. I am happy I choose this product from Radial, because it not only has a great sounding onboard preamp, it also has an fx loop for processing and a lot of control over your tone. I love having control over the level of the mic in plus a little eq, control over the level of send/receive and mix of the effects loop (plus a bit of tone control on that end as well), and I love having the option to toggle between the dry signal and the fx loop added. The added bonus is the option to also only have the wet signal coming through, which is helpful when the band I am playing with is really loud and I just want my affected sound coming through. This button can also be set up to be used as a full mute with a small switch on the side of the pedal. Also has phantom power and a ground lift, which is helpful. The only con for me is that I'm really not sure why they would put the send jack for the fx loop on the left and the receive on the right, considering absolutely everyone I know and every fx pedal I know has their signal chain processed from a jack in on the right side and out to the left. Not a big deal, but a bit of a pain in the butt if you have right angle patch cords running from your voco-loco. All in all, an excellent product that I am super glad I pulled the trigger on.
