The Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal has 9 vocal harmonies, 3 styles of reverb, 12 keys (plus major/minor selection), 48V phantom power, and microphone gain control. It's really convenient to have harmony and reverb triggered by two separate foot-switches.
The Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal has a Microphone Balanced XLR in and out, perfect for connecting up to a mixer, a direct recording interface or a live PA system. Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal has 9 options of harmony vocal processing effects available:
1 Unison - Vocals are processed in unison, the pitch remains the same but is delayed slightly, in effect it creates a chorus effect.

3 High - Pitch is processed to a 3rd above
4 Low & High - A 3rd above and a 4th below
5 Lower - Pitch is processed to a 6th below

7 Lower & Higher - a 6th below & a 5th above
8 Low & Lower - a 4th below & a 6th below
9 High & Higher - 3rd above and a 5th above
All of the Harmonizing effects on the Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal can be mixed, adjusting the ratio of dry sound (natural) and applying the wet signal of the selected harmony. The more you turn the mix to the right, the dry signal fades away and more harmonics are applied.
With a rotary encoder, The Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal can process your vocals in 12 different keys, select C, D, E, F, G, A & B and by pressing the dial, you get the # (not for E or B). A Major / Minor toggle switch is available to adjust your scale. The LED display indicates the selected key.
A 3-mode Reverb control can be adjusted and turned on or off with the foot-switch on the right. The foot-switch on the left activates the Harmony selection, both can be used independently of each other and each will light when active.
On the side of the Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal, there is a switch to turn off/on 48v phantom power for using condenser microphones
On the rear of the Joyo R-16 Vocal Lab Vocal Harmonizer Effects Pedal, there is a 1/4” mono instrument input, perfect for connecting your guitar or keyboard. This also has the feature of using the reverb effect, but will not process a harmony on the instrument.
The Aux-in 3.5mm stereo input will allow you to connect up your phone/tablet or mp3 player to sing & play along to. What is special about this is the center silencer button that will strip out vocals (from the center) from the music, giving you a vocal-free music experience (karaoke-style). Whilst this is not suitable for all tracks, the principle is that when the center silence is activated the right input of the stereo aux in is sent out of phase, so when it's put back together, the center pan is removed from playback.
