Sound Like a Pro Wherever You Sing
Whether you’re a pro stage singer or just singing for fun on YouTube videos, every vocalist benefits from enhancing their sound with high-quality reverb and studio effects. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have a sound engineer with us to dial up great sounds every time we perform. The VE-1 Vocal Echo solves this problem, providing a compact, all-in-one solution that lets you sound your best everywhere you sing.
Studio-Quality Ambience to Go
The VE-1 includes lush reverb and other essential vocal tools, all combined in a small, battery-operated package that you can take anywhere. Its seven ambience presets are built with sophisticated under-the-hood processing, giving you instant access to pleasing sounds for all types of music. Crafted by BOSS’ expert engineers along with input from top recording engineers from around the world, these presets let you call up everything from subtle enhancement to rich, enveloping echo.
Beyond the top-quality reverbs, the VE-1’s other great features allow you to put that extra finishing touch to your vocal sound. Pressing the Double button instantly adds a rich effect that sounds like two singers singing the same part together, while the Enhance button evens out vocals for a more refined sound. Pitch Correct helps you to stay in tune, and also allows you to achieve the “electronic voice” sound heard on so many of today’s hit songs.
Simple, Instant-Access Controls
Don’t have any experience working with audio processing gear? No problem! With the VE-1, there’s no need to worry about fussy parameter settings to get great results right away. The panel is intuitive to operate, with dedicated knobs and buttons for various functions and a large footswitch for turning the VE-1 on/off while performing. Just call up one of the seven presets, and then turn the knobs to set the effect amount and tone to your liking.
After you’ve adjusted the VE-1, you can use the Memory function to store three of your favorite settings for instant recall at any time. Along with the current panel settings, this provides access to four different sound setups, making it simple to call up effects suited to specific songs while performing. Both the Memory and Double functions can be controlled from an optional footswitch such as the BOSS FS-7, letting you adjust your sound without taking your attention off the audience.
The VE-1’s XLR input is compatible with a variety of pro microphone types, including condenser mics that require phantom power. An XLR output provides an easy connection to a PA mixer, while the Phones/Line Out jack allows for private practice and connecting to line-level devices.
The Easy Way to Capture Great Vocal Sounds to Your Computer
Via the VE-1’s USB port, you can plug into your computer and record your vocals directly into popular recording software. This is perfect for songwriting, allowing you to record high-quality vocals with effects in one pass for demos and other productions.
The VE-1’s computer connection is also perfect for achieving studio-level vocal sounds for YouTube videos and other social media content. With the convenient loopback function, you can stream backing music or karaoke tracks from your computer, and then mix the music with the VE-1’s processed vocal sounds and record the result all at once, either back into the computer or to a video camera’s sound input jack.
