Electro-Harmonix Voice Box Vocal Effects Processor Pedal
Well known for their extensive line of quality guitar pedals, EHX knows that there's always room for one more pedal. So with the Voice Box, they decided to create a pedal for singing instrumentalists to play with, resulting in a vocal effect pedal that can handle harmony and vocoder duties in one package.
The response to this pedal has been mostly positive, with many users and experts impressed by how the pedal can go from smooth doubling to out of this world alien sounds with just a few knob turns.
- Smart Harmony matching with any electric instrument
- Nine harmony modes that include low, high, combination, multi-harmonies, octave and vocoder.
- Built-in Reverb Effect
- Gender bending via its pitch shifting algorithm
- 48V Phantom Power
- Mic and Guitar input/output
The Voice Box has a smart harmony algorithm that produces harmonies based on the chords that you use. In addition, it also analyzes the pitch of your voice to ensure that the virtual back up singing is inline with both your chords and singing.
You can switch between nine harmony modes that cover quite a lot of ground, from low to high, to multi-harmonies and octaves. Its coolest feature however is the Vocoder mode which turns this professional sounding vocal effect into a fun experimental effect. Other features include reverb and gender bending via pitch shifting.
If you're just looking to add simple and subtle enhancements to your singing voice, then this can be a bit of overkill.
