Powerful Vocal Expression For Guitar & Bass

Express YourselfThe human voice is certainly one of the most expressive instruments ever, capable of creating a huge range of sounds. Vocoder technology lets you use this power and control the tone of your instrument in new ways using real-time vocal manipulation, creating speech-like sounds, infinitely controllable wah, and much more.

For years, keyboardists have used vocoders to create electronic vocal tones and other voice-like textures with synthesizers. Now, the VO-1 makes it easy for guitarists and bassists to use this inspiring creative tool with their music.

Cutting-Edge Vocoder Technology In A Compact Stompbox

Iconic Sounds Made AccessibleDriven by BOSS’ renowned guitar synth technology, the VO-1 provides power and versatility that goes much further than standard vocoders. Vintage mode produces the synthesized voice sounds you'll be familiar with, heard on several pop and electronic music records through the years. Advanced mode utilizes new BOSS technology to transform speech and other vocalizations to your guitar with unmatchable definition and clarity.

Talk Box mode recreates classic “talking lead guitar” tones without needing to use a traditional talk box rig and mouth tube, making these iconic sounds much more accessible and achievable. Choir mode produces warm, grasping vocal textures from a direct input, with no need for a mic.

Infinite Possibilities

Intuitive DesignWith the VO-1, BOSS have made the vocoder straightforward and incredibly intuitive. It connects to your rig like any other pedal, the only additional connection needed is a microphone, which you’ll use to drive the VO-1’s vocoder engine when using the first three modes. From there, just turn on the effect, turn the knobs, and vocalize into the mic as you play.

You don’t even need to be able to sing in tune. All the pitch is controlled with your hands as normal, whilst the VO-1 adds the diverse formant characteristics of your voice to the tone in real time. The VO-1 also comnes with an effect loop for patching in external effects, along with a Blend control for mixing vocoder and straight tones together.
