  • "The Voco-Loco is a great tool for horn players that use stomp boxes. It improves the quality of the signal, reduces noise and simplifies the signal chain."

  • "The Voco-Loco is the brains of my pedalboard and definitely makes sure I have control over everything. It's nice to have only one button that does the job of many. Sounds great too!"

  • "I have had great luck with the Voco Loco on stage and in the studio to incorporate guitar effects pedals with my saxophone. The preamp and EQ sections sound great, also the ability to bring FX in and out, as well as mute on a loud stage is key."

  • "I'm really gassed about the VocoLoco... It's changed the way I approach effects with my horn. The ability to quickly switch in echo, reverb and wah is mind boggling."

  • "I've done a lot of experimenting with different ways of using guitar pedals, running them at line level, Impedance matching line transformers and some other devices also with effects loops. The Voco-Loco somehow just seems to work better than anything else I've tried"

Voco-Loco Effects Switcher for Voice or Instrument

Part No. R800 1425 00

  • Add guitar effects pedals to vocals or instruments
  • Create exciting and unique effects as you perform
  • Turn on multiple effects using one footswitch
  • Works with either dynamic or condenser microphones

The Voco-Loco is a foot-controlled effects loop that enables the lead vocalist, sax or trumpet player to incorporate guitar effects pedals into the signal path, just like an electric guitarist adds effects for soloing.

The design begins with a state-of-the-art mic preamp that is designed to accept both a standard dynamic microphone or a condenser by activating the built-in phantom power supply. A great sounding two band EQ with low and high frequency shelving makes it easy to add warmth and shimmer. The signal is then sent to the guitar pedals via a transformer isolated hi-Z effects loop circuit that is equipped with individual send & receive controls to optimize signal-to-noise and reduce distortion. A tone control on the return path lets you smooth the sound of pedals that may be overly bright and the blend control lets you mix the original 'dry' signal with the 'wet' effect to set the perfect mix.

Simply plug your mic into the Voco-Loco via the XLR input, connect your effects pedals using standard ¼" guitar cables, and then send the output from the Voco-Loco to the input on your mixer. Before the song begins, choose which effects you want on and - when you are ready - activate the loop using the right hand footswitch. A second footswitch serves double-duty as either a mute switch to turn off the mic between sets or as a 100% wet effects loop for special situations where you may not want any of the clean signal to pass through.

With the Voco-Loco in your signal chain, you can add delay or reverb, maybe a touch of distortion or even a special effect like a wah-wah to enhance your solo performance. The options are only limited by your imagination and desire to stand out from the crowd!
