Zoom announces its latest vocal effects processor, the V3, which features 16 professional voice-changing effects for anyone, anywhere. Whether you are collaborating online, recording, or streaming, the V3 is packed with effects, harmonizing options, pitch correction, and more.
The front panel offers 16 pads for fast and easy effects selection, including Harmony, Talk Box, Vocoder, Pitch Correction (Key), Octave, Unison, Whistle, Pitch Correction (Chromatic), Distortion, Telephone, Beat Box, Chorus, Deep, Robot, Child, and Formant Character.
On top of that, the V3 features a dedicated compressor, delay, and reverb section, as well as a professional microphone preamplifier with +48V phantom power and an Enhancement function, which automatically optimizes the performance of any microphone.
The rear panel offers a panoply of connections, including an XLR mic input for connecting dynamic and condenser microphones, a pair of ¼" outputs for connecting directly to a PA, a 3.5mm TRS aux input, a headphone jack, and a ¼" controller input that's compatible with the optional Zoom FS01 footswitch and the FP02M expression pedal for precise, hands-free control. A micro-USB cable connects to a computer, allowing the V3 to function as a dedicated 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface (44.1 kHz, 16/24/32-bit).
The V3 can be powered via an optional 9V power adapter (Zoom AD-16) or via four included AA batteries. The optional Zoom SGV-6 microphone is also compatible with the V3 and is designed to isolate your voice by suppressing ambient noise, allowing for unmatched accuracy. The unit can be used on a tabletop or attached to a mic stand using the optional Zoom HRM-7 or HRM-11 Handy Recorder mounts.
The Zoom V3 is a great addition to any home or professional studio as well as live performance. You'll be delighted by the three-part harmonies across a full octave and the many other stellar effects
