Guitar/Vocal Processor Stompbox with Mic Preamp and Phantom Power, Harmony Generator, Chromatic Pitch Correction, Acoustic Guitar FX, 80-second Looper, USB Port, and Stereo 1/4″ and XLR Outputs
One Pedal for the Whole Stage
The BOSS VE-8 Acoustic Singer has all the processing power you need for your voice and guitar, so you can travel light. You can drum out beats and perform over them via the 80-second looper, add intelligent vocal harmonies on the spot, and dial in new textures – like vocal distortion and guitar octaves – for dynamic stage performances. Onboard pitch correction even helps you hit those awkward notes. You can then send pre-mixed or independent signals to your acoustic amp and PA via two sets of stereo outputs. Though its simple layout makes the BOSS VE-8 perfect for the stage, direct DAW recording over USB and an auxiliary audio input for your phone make this pedal a staple for your studio or practice space.

Professional vocal preamp with onboard harmony, enhancement, and effects
Musiekwereld knows that trusting your vocals to a different sound engineer every night can rack your nerves. The BOSS VE-8 alleviates this by giving you full control of your vocal sound from the stage. A professional mic preamp with phantom power gives you a reliable front end for your ’58 or stage condenser. Onboard reverb to hard-edge electronic effects gets you as classic or modern a sound as you like. And the ability to call up harmonies on the spot is great for sweetening choruses. The VE-8 listens to the chords you’re playing and generates the correct harmony automatically with the touch of a switch – no music training or adjustments required. Of course, Fixed and Hybrid harmony modes are available for more rigorous recording applications.
Acoustic Resonance and effects make your acoustic guitar come to life
The convenience of under-saddle piezo pickups doesn’t come without a price. Many acoustic players will agree that these don’t always represent the unplugged sound of their instruments. The VE-8’s Acoustic Resonance enhancement helps to restore some of your guitar’s natural body plugged in. A notch filter helps squash feedback before it starts. Effects like reverb, chorus, and delay add space and texture to your accompaniment, and an onboard tuner keeps you sounding your best between songs.
80-second looper keeps your live shows dynamic
The BOSS VE-8’s built-in looper lets you experiment with rhythms, melodies, leads, and chord shapes in practice. Then take those ideas to the stage and impress your audience. You can drum or beatbox a rhythm and play chords over it, or hammer out a chord structure and play leads and sing over it. The BOSS VE-8 brings exciting band accompaniment to the solo stage.
Simple layout with USB recording and aux input
A large 3-button layout makes the VE-8 a natural for low-lit stages. But you’ll also get miles out of it in the studio or practice room. Direct recording over USB sends the BOSS VE-8’s quality sound directly into your DAW – no interface required. And a 1/8″ stereo input for your music player lets you learn covers in practice or play along with your own studio tracks onstage.
