ZOOM V6 Vocal Processor Review (April 2024)


Last updated on April 9, 2024 4:27 pm Details


In this review post we’re going to be discussing the ZOOM V6 Vocal Processor, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

Packed with professional vocal effects, built-in looper, and our new Formant Pedal, no matter what style you sing the V6 will take your music to the next level.  Perfect for live performance, you can easily activate effects and quickly recall your favorite settings.

The V6 is the only vocal processor to use an expression pedal for shifting the formant of your voice. The formant pedal can provide radical changes in vocal characteristics without changing the pitch, delivering an unprecedented level of creativity and exploration. With 40 preloaded patches, there are plenty of great sounds to choose from right out of the box. Or experiment and create and save your own.

An important component of the V6 is Zoom’s innovative SVG-6 mic. The SVG-6 is designed to isolate your voice by suppressing sounds from other instruments on stage. The mic’s vocal isolation enables the V6 to process your voice with unmatched accuracy.

Select the key of your song and the V6 will process your voice to the nearest pitch within the key. Using the ADJUST knob you can determine how fast the processing is executed to obtain a softer or harsher correction to your original voice.

The V6 will shift your voice to the nearest chromatic pitch.

The built-in looper allows up to 3:30 of loop creation. Overdub multiple vocal parts all by yourself. Simply step on the footswitch and off you go.

Our Verdict

The V6 has been considerably streamlined, which should result in a very quick live performance tool. The harmonizer and looper, if effectively developed and easily accessible, will allow for some really wild combinations with little to no technical distractions for the performer. Then there’s a decent variety of effects to take things over the top. I’m also curious how the SGV-6 mic performs in terms of reducing room, background, and stage noise while maintaining a great vocal tone.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
