Incredible Expression for Guitar and Bass

There’s nothing quite as expressive as the human voice and using the Boss VO-1 Vocoder allows you to use your voice control your guitar tone.

Using this pedal you’ll be able to sculpt incredible new sounds, infinitely controllable wah and speech sounds through real-time vocal manipulation.

Keyboard players have been able to make use of vocoders in their music for amazingly expressive performances with their synthesizer and now Boss have brought this incredible potential to your guitar or bass, all packed into a compact pedal.

Amazing Vocoder Technology in a Compact Pedal with Multiple Modes

Utilising Boss’ famous guitar synth technology, the VO-1 Vocoder pedal offers great sound, control and versatility.

When you set the VO-1 to Vintage mode you get the classic synthesized voice sound you’ll know and love from some great records of the past few decades.

Advanced mode is driven by new BOSS technology that translates speech and other vocalised sounds to your guitar with incredible definition and clarity.

Talk Box mode gives you the classic “talking lead guitar” tones without the need of an external talk box rig and mouth tube so you can get these awesome sounds much easier than ever before.

Setting the VO-1 Vocoder pedal to Choir mode gives you rich, impressive vocal textures from a direct input, so unlike the other modes – Choir doesn’t require a microphone.

Easy-to-Use, Packed with Potential

By creating the VO-1, Boss have given us a vocoder that is convenient, easy-to-use and delivers incredible results.

It integrates with your rig just like any other pedal and fits alongside the rest of your compact effects units.
