Boss VE-2 Vocal Harmonist and Effects Processor
The Boss VE-2 combines all the sophisticated sounds of the Boss/Roland VE range that's gone before with simple operation, the VE-2 Vocal Harmonist gives you a complete effects solution for your voice, particularly if you regularly perform with guitar.
This portable, battery-powered stompbox has everything you need to create polished, studio-quality sounds live on the stage, from the concert to the street and all the way back to practice at home again. The VE-2 creates beautiful harmonised vocals that follow your singing, no magic required. With pitch that automatically tracks along to the chords played on a connected guitar, a key set by you, or a combination of the two. Using one of these modes it's easy to create harmonies in any key, in real time, perfectly. Even if you have no experience with music gear, computers or the dreaded music theory.
In addition to harmony, the VE-2 also provides a raft of essential effects to make your voice sound it's best. There's a high-quality reverb/delay and an enhancer with real-time pitch correction. Also included is a USB audio function so you can plug this thing straight into your computer and use it as a studio quality input strip to get great sounds straight to track!

Haven’t figured all the settings out yet but it’s definitely a great but of kit.
Iove it, does everything that it said, more than happy with it.
Exceptional piece of kit not just for the main vocalist but backing singers as well.
Great addition to my equipment easy to use dose exactly what it says on the tin.
Small and compact but does so much. Very please.
