WATCH - NAMM 2016: Boss VO-1 Vocoder Pedal to Bring Vocal Expression to Guitar and Bass

Boss VO-1 Vocoder

Electronic voice textures and talk box sounds are now accessible to guitarists and bassists alike thanks to Boss' VO-1 Vocoder stompbox pedal.

Whilst this has been something possible for keyboard players, guitarists and bass players can now capitalise on the the endless creative possibilities that a vocoder can bring to your musical masterpieces.

Plug your microphone into the pedal alongside your guitar or bass to achieve both classic and new never-before heard electronic vocal textures. The Choir mode helps deliver rich ensembles sounds with your chosen instrument - though for this mode, you do not have to connect an external mic.

While Level and Blend knobs control the overall volume and direct/effect mix. Send and Return jacks are also provided, allowing the user to patch in an external effect and apply it to the direct sound.

As with all Boss pedals, you can expect excellent quality and reliability and run the pedal on a 9v battery or a continuous power supply - sold separately.
