OVERVIEW

A compact vocall processor with friendly features.

The VE-5 Vocal Performer is a compact and mobile personal effects processor and looper for vocalists. Featuring a simple-to-use tabletop design easily attachable to a mic stand for performing, the VE-5 is perfect for singers, rappers, beatboxers, webcasters, and anyone who wants to have fun with processing vocal sounds. Its physical design is small and light, yet its effects are heavyweight class, derived from Boss' popular VE-20 Vocal Performer. With battery operation and built-in phrase looping, the VE-5 is also an ideal tool for street performers who want to bring a new dimension of creativity to their act.

Simple and Intuitive Operation
From beginners to professionals, all singers can enjoy great results with the VE-5. Even technophobes or non-musicians will embrace this creative processor, thanks to its simple, intuitive operation. The handy Favorite Sound function, for example, lets you instantly access your preferred sounds with a press of a button.

Diverse Applications
The VE-5 is suited for a variety of settings. It's perfect for live performers, and the included mount lets you attach it to any standard microphone stand. Some of the VE-5's functions can even be controlled by footswitches, which is great for hands-free operation. When powered by batteries, the VE-5 becomes an ideal tool for street performance, and it also fits beautifully in homes and studios as a tabletop processor.

Great Presets and High-Quality Effects
The VE-5 has six types of high-quality effects and various special processing, all inherited from the VE-20. Enhance your vocals with smooth Reverb or Delay, or control the level with the Dynamics function. Thicken your voice with the Double/Harmonizer and correct intonation problems with Pitch Correct. Use the onboard Distortion, Radio, and Strobe for unique and impactful special effects. You can even create iconic pitch-correct/hard-tune effects - a staple of many modern hip-hop and pop hits.

Built-In Phrase Looper
Have fun layering and looping your voice with the VE-5's built-in Phrase Looper. You can generate harmonies with yourself in real time, or jam over your own looped beatboxing. This creative feature greatly expands the potential of real-time vocal performance.

    Comments about Boss VE-5 Vocal Effects Processor:

    This is an item that I'll be using a lot. The instruction manual could use a larger print size! However, between the manual and a little trial and error. I
    I'd say it is an easy learning process.
    I can't wait to get VE-5 on-stage.

      Comments about Boss VE-5 Vocal Effects Processor:

      I'm the vocalist in my band. It caters to my creativity! It helps me achieve my versatility! It's so much fun and I'm barely figuring out. It is my first vocal processor, so i can't compare. Although it makes me a little naive in thinking that there can't be anything better. It's super easy to use. Instructions aren't necessary. It's that easy. Which makes it that much more worth it. It definitely has influenced the writing process.

        Comments about Boss VE-5 Vocal Effects Processor:

        I'm a vocalist and I actually don't need all the variety of vocal effects available, but the thing works great and I secretly enjoy goofing around with the odd effects. The only thing I wish was that the loop storage was longer.

        Comments about Boss VE-5 Vocal Effects Processor:

        Product is made very well and the stand attachment is awesome! The batteries last a long time and the product is very user friendly. The only complaint I have is that makes your voice sound electronic instead of inhancing. The Boss VE 20 did not do that. I was really excited about this being a bit smaller and not having to stomp to change or have to bend over constantly. I wish I did not buy this and should have returned it in the window of time and just ordered another VE20.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was great and prompt.

          Comments about Boss VE-5 Vocal Effects Processor:

          I have a collection of harmonizers and never was satisfied with any of them. The units always
          had an issue that made it difficult to use. Not any more !!!! My wife and I sing in a gospel group
          and use accompaniment tracks. Our problem was we had to hold down the pedal on our other
          BossVE20 unit then switch keys with seemed like eternity. This unit you just turn the knob and presto
          you have the key you need and hit exit. Also setting the amount of harmony you need is a snap.
          You can also store your favorite settings but since this is so easy to change we didn't even bother.
          We didn't bother with the effects since our powered mixer is already equipped with those settings.
          If you need something simple and easy to use this is it. As always the harmony is decent sounding and someday they may perfect the sound quality. As for now this is our best solution for a quality sounding
          vocal processor.
