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.

Features
  • Compact, all-in-one preamp and effects solution for singers who play acoustic guitar
  • Dial in rich, sophisticated BOSS sound processing with simple, intuitive controls
  • Studio-quality vocal processing includes four types of ambience effects plus Enhance, chromatic pitch correction for live vocal tuning, and more

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

I haven't been that crazy about the idea of looping until recently but I've been looking at harmony boxes for vocals. Looked at several of those, even bought one and returned it last year. I play mainly electric guitar in a band but have been considering deleting doing a solo thing again. When this came out I was all over it! I'm in the honeymoon phase still but man it sounds good and is easy to use. My only wish is that it had some Bluetooth capabilities so that I could change some settings on my iPad!

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

    I play in a band and also I do some solo performances. The VE 8 is an acoustic performers dream come true when it comes to solo performances. I saw some negative reviews but if you take the time to go over the manual and do some adjustments you can get this thing sounding just like you want. I love the fact that you can EQ the vocals and guitar separately and tailor it to the sound that suits you. The guitar effects that I use which is usually just some reverb and chorus sound great. The resonance adjustment lets you get some good sounds out of your guitar even with worn strings. The vocal enhancement and harmonies also sound great. There again if you read the manual and make a few adjustments I don't see how you would ever be disappointed. I plan to use it at church and all my solo gigs. Very satisfied with my purchase.
