The VE-500 is an advanced vocal multi-effects, pitch correction, and harmony stompbox for the singing guitarists. It featuring class-leading sound quality and a high-powered BOSS DSP engine for processing vocals with up to nine effects at once. The extensive selection of effects are specially tuned for vocals; Enhance section for shaping core tone, plus reverb, delay, modulation, distortion, EQ, filter, and many other types for further processing. The VE-500 tracks what you play on your guitar to automatically delivers sophisticated harmony and pitch correction that are in the correct key and pitch.

Automatic vocal harmony/pitch correction powered by newly enhanced BOSS algorithms for natural sound with smooth tracking
The VE-500's automatic harmony engine is powered by advanced BOSS processing that detects the chords and key you play with your guitar, generating smooth and natural two- and three-part harmonies in real time as you sing. And by working with the VE-500’s different harmony modes, you’re able to refine the harmonies as needed for songs that have more complex key structures. The harmony engine can alternately be driven via MIDI (through either the VE-500’s MIDI or USB inputs), enabling you to generate pitch-perfect live harmonies with a MIDI keyboard or DAW-based backing tracks.

Advanced vocal multi-effects stompbox for singing guitarists
The VE-500 contains wide-ranging effects with deep editing parameters for crafting nearly any vocal sound imaginable. In addition, highly flexible routing options are available for processing live and harmonized vocals together or separately. Use the Enhance section to polish your voice with essentials like compressor, de-esser, and EQ, then tap into the two dedicated Reverb/Delay sections for everything from subtle coloration to lush, expansive clouds of ambiance. Four independent FX engines are available as well, and each contains an enormous selection of effects types. Spice things up with a little chorus, flanger, or tremolo, add some secondary reverb or delay, or take things over the top with distortion, radio voice, ring mod, slicer, filtering, and more—the sky’s the limit!

Powerful vocoder functions
Another killer VE-500 feature is its powerful vocoder function, which is derived from BOSS’s unique and innovative VO-1 Vocoder pedal. By vocalizing into the connected mic as you play, you can transform your guitar’s tone with electronic voices and an array of all-new colors for modern music styles. It’s even possible to replicate traditional talkbox sounds, providing instant access to classic “talking lead guitar” tones without having to use a talk box rig and mouth tube.

Excellent product from an excellent vendor!


I'm just starting to delve into the capabilities of the VE-500. I was a bit put off at first with controlling the unit from itself, a heck of a lot of paging through options on that tiny screen. But the editing software makes it a breeze to program whatever kind of effects you want and save the patches. Very powerful! I'm extremely pleased with this purchase, and even more pleased with Sam Ash as a vendor. They listed this item as "used", but it came in the original packaging with everything inside (manual, cables, unit, etc.) all in original plastic packaging. Way to go, Sam Ash!



Great vocal harmonizer


Great alternative to the TC Helicon Voicelive 3, which I've been using for years. Much more compact and focuses only on vocal effects.



Transform any show into something UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT


Perfect product! It is a little complicated to use at first and will take a few shows to get your setting down. What sounds good on your personal PA or recording equipment will not sound good via front of house, also, make sure you have a good sound guy that can compensate for the different sounds as feedback is an issue. Also, invest in a two XLR to one XLR adapter as there is no mono XLR out.
