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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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-inch 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.

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.

great purchase


greatest vocal pedal ever...



This Unit Delivers


What can I say. This unit delivers as promised. Great effects and enhancements for all your vocal and acoustic needs. Easy to use on the fly and while the looper is pretty standard, it is very easy to use and quite useful for solo performances. One wish would be to be able to add delay to the vocals but not a big deal. All of the reverb and modulation effects are first rate. Would highly recommend this unit.





Beautifully designed. Everything I need.



I would purchase this product again


All I can say is WOW!! - had no idea that this preamp would be as powerful as it is with guitar effects, vocal harmonies and memory loops. With 50 presets to store effects for both instrument and harmony - it just doesn't get much better than that. The device also includes a looper as well. It blew us away from the start



Great for the solo Acoustic guy!


This is the perfect tool for the solo acoustic performer. The looper can do guitar, voice, percussive stuff on the acoustic and theres 80 seconds of record time. The vocal harmony voices are really good as long as you don't layer too many of them. Plus, no more telling the box what key you're in. It all functions off your guitar notes and voice. -this is a staff review by skern at Sam ash Music 57




This product is great for the soloist musician


This product gives the musician crisp clarity on guitar as well as backup harmony without the baggage of others tagging along.




Great for solo acts


The Boss VE-8 is a very versatile pedal. Not only does it add depth to your acoustic guitar but allows you to plug a microphone in and add a great sounding harmony to it. Perfect for any solo artist that wants to add a little more flavor to their sound. Very simple to use.

This vocal processor is packed with features and also easy to use. The straightforward design is very accessible where other processors can seem overbearing. It's easy to dial in enhanced vocal tones and even sound effects as well as dial in harmonies to fit with whatever you're playing on guitar. This is a great tool for any solo artist or anyone looking to have control over their vocal tone.

Boss VE8


A great in between that is more than the VE2, but a little less money than the VE20. Memory mode, reverb select and plenty of options that are completely user friendly. Plug in an acoustic, harmonize in key and have fun without having a vocal processor that can be too much or too little at times!
