I have an older Fender/Sun PA head that has an effects loop on it. In the past, I have used an Alesis Nanoverb in the loop to "grease" the vocals and it sounds much better than the PA head's "on-board" reverb.

I no longer have full-time access to the Nanoverb and need to buy a unit.

Does the effects unit have to be a "vocal" effects processor... or would a "guitar" multi-effects processor work pretty much the same?

Also would appreciate any suggestions on vocal or guitar units that anyone has had success with when using with a PA's effects loop.

The Nanoverb is an effects processor. It's not geared toward vocals or guitar, so it works fine for everything. Most guitar effects have a freq handling/response capability that will work perfectly for vocals. Best thing to do is try it and see what works best.

I'm not sure it would work but check out the TC-Helicon Voice Create Excellent unit for adding effects ie reverb delay etc to your voice. It has 8 or 10 programable presets so you can have different setting for different songs if you want.

There is a forum specifically for users of the VoiceLive processor if you are interested.
