See the official Boss website.
The loop function allows you to record a loop of up to 40 msec. and you can sample virtually endless loops over it... I've combined about 10 sounds.
Ultra easy to use, virtually everything can be edited, even the display properties... I didn't use the user's manual except for the recording mode.
The sound is very good although a bit too dry... But I play a RD500 bass guitar with a two year old string set... The pedal is very versatile thanks to the amp simulations and the editable frequency response curves.
I've been using it for six months and I'm very satisfied. The loop function allowed me to improve my improvisation skills. I like most of all the guitar solo and wah effects to compete with guitarists who get surprised by the sound of my bass.
Average value for money.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
(people who want to have some fun with the guitar solo effect add a Screamer and you'll get even better results
Compact unit combining the essential editable effects on Pc via a free software on the net
Far costly than buying individual pedals but it must amend its by c. learned to play by playing hard to get access to parameters.
Papabass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
To all these questions the manual is perfect.
It is generally easy to use.
Since it is made for bass, I used it with a bass! The effects are effective. But as all these machines, the test that kills you play with, then play without, and we realize that we are losing a good portion of the signal. Some say it's okay, you can compensate with EQ, etc ... But blah, that's convert mp3 to aiff, once it is lost, it is lost. I also tried digitech, vox, and others, it's the same. Although it is sold for the 24/44, the quality of converters is not there.
Given my previous answer I did not keep, such as 3 or 4 others I've tried. In summary, it is still the easiest to use and the best quality / price ratio. Faur but I found something else.
