Boss has officially released the VE-8, an all-in-one effects and harmony processor for vocals and acoustic guitar along with several new tuners.

This is billed as the ideal product for singer songwriters who require a preamp and effects in one compact unit coupled with Boss' renowned studio quality.

The pedal can run on mains power or batteries to provide its rich, sophisticated audio processing. Whilst it is sophisticated in nature, its controls are simple and easy to use.

The vocal channel in the VE-8 is loaded with options to process and refine the sound. Four types of ambiance effects are included, plus an Enhance feature to add clarity and control to a vocal. Chromatic pitch correction is available as well, which automatically keeps vocals in tune with ultra-fast real-time processing.

The harmony section will detect chords and the key played on a connected guitar and provide complementary vocal harmonies to the music.

Sound-shaping options are also present to help eliminate on-stage problems associated with pickups and electro-acoustic guitars.

Reverb, delay, chorus and a tuner are also built-in to make this the singer / songwriters ideal live and studio solution to music performance.
