Boss GT-6B
All effects in this pdalier rested, there is no lack one. Pdalier analog, digital and tube emulation. For shipping via PC, I did not see t again. The GT6B both insert into my mixer connects the sound card, with it, I have no problem to register on my computer. All connectors (audio / MIDI). This is a pdalier the ground, not to be prvu rack.


We must fiddle with the buttons for hours to really find its own sound but once it mmorise, but happiness. Everything is paramtrable ditable and, with respect to the manual, I just walked it seemed as logical as a great hacker. I exploded like a little crazy and try everything once I bauch an entire program of the correct, what a relief to hear his bass humming like never before.


The simulation is Ampeg trs flattering, it can have a big large, well this coupled with a simulation of enclosure 810 with the location of the microphone and power output (especially useful for connection mixer or sound card). The compressor does a good job, he is shot several machines known in the studio, then it's just a matter of taste. There really is not a single effect dnigrer and I always ask myself this question: "but why Doug Wimbish has not yet adopted?". I use this thing with my two basses (Ibanez Ergodyne EDA900 Charvel and 5 string) for the 1st low with his ineffective enough for me, it allows me to amplify on a good simulation of it in GT6B also a beautiful setting rverbe to get along in my little home studio. As for the Charvel, it possde long sustain but no heat and I arrange this gap with a program that is ddi. I do not charge too low, the effects that I can put cot compression are sometimes lined with a lightweight noise-gate, and a rverbration Obviously the reproduction of an amp as legendary Ampeg or with more patience, a SWR. I'm not a fan of the chorus but it is mine and not the pdalier, if the effect is down double chorus, absolutely try. Some banks with the Boss sounds books are sometimes abroad as dnomme "Flea self slap" (that is a slap in effect ddi with a rate program that comes and goes in a loop! !!!). In these banks the factory, do not change hsiter by banks against the users are many and this is very enjoyable game for a particular purpose scne and this port will be Submitted e foot.


I've had about its official release in Europe. J'apprcie his dsign, weight and versatility. Well, ok, it is red, just this little BMOL but it is still a matter of taste. I compared it with a Digitech lamp and there's no photo, my choice was made quickly trs, and the Boss handily outperforms the world of multi-effects for bass pdalier. This is a good investment because you need is just the bass and this thing (and a headphone) To create good lines and that in most discrte respondent. It may well be coupled trs also a mixer output through its direct trs flattering, but it will sound rhausser as this trend be clean but without much volume, finally, for me. This is an excellent pdalier that will find its place in all situations and it is far from becoming deprecated. It is not cheap trs seen what's in it and the quality of sound that rsulte. Strongly recommended.

Boss GT-6B
Pdalier multi-purpose full and trs pr-amp modlisation. Numrique technology. For dtail of the rglages pramp, effects, etc. of the connector, consult the manufacturer's website (which does nothing else, dailleurs).
Two operating modes:
- You select the banks with the switches at the top and patches with the lower four switches,
- Select one or patches with the switches at the top and the bottom four effects operate as spares pedals (distortion, comp, because 1 and 2)

No dditeur Mac / PC despite the pressing demands of users around the world (see this issue advice dHarmony Central difiant EST)
CATEGORY in the multi-effects for bass, cest loud and clear, there is no better. I put 9 Paske perfection is not of this world .. and lacks an external effects loop ...


Relatively simple configuration to for the settings (section pramp, q, compressor, effects, etc..), It is possible either configs OF USE RULES pr-rglages according to current each effect, or you can dive in the dtails paramtrages.
Edition trs comfortable custom settings effects, sometimes a little abstruse for the subtleties of type assignment on the pedals dexpression
Overall, the manual does help, provided of course DTRE compltement bilingual (the manual is in English) and enter what is for the settings
Otherwise a mthode works well, cest edit custom settings and turn the knob to see what was :-)

7 / 10, one point at least for once lost the manual ...

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>Update of 10.8.04: Control the pedals is really a good idea, you can assign any nimporte paramtre almost. Cest very useful to activate a fleeting effect as if a CTAIT deffet pedals, without changing the patch (in fact, there is a little lag time when changing patch, and right mid-piece, may be teachers).
Small dtail which is not a nen: laccordeur Intgr is a disgrace! Hyper inaccurate, not stable, dcroche compltement in the grave. Pass the grave r dun Drop D, must be hanging around for a good 10 seconds that it identifies the note, and he reperd aussitt. To me who only plays on 5-string and detuned often, it's true trs blowing! One point less for this thing to sigh, unforgivable considering the price!</span>


Effects on grain typically Boss (some say cold, I think is a better term prcis adquate). For now used only with the bass, then we'll see if it works for other process instruments
For now jai not yet fully explored but much jaime phaser, wah, loctaver is not bad when pushed to its limits not, and the chorus is cool.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>Update of 10/08/04: As with all effects, care must be taken not to overuse modulations and other flangers, Star Trek-sounding fast if you push a little too over the Dry / Wet. on the other hand, lassign of these effects to the tempo is really convenient, you can lock the note, the black or the white trs cool</span>


I lay for a week, I will wash APRS days a little more time OF USE
Compared my old Korg, the leap is indniable. A patch per song, the possibility dassigner a parameter on the pedals of CONTRL to trigger a fleeting effect without changing the patch, a fully assignable pedals and settings dexpression

Not specially mentioned in the manual in English well and totally dnu pdagogie that my recall of certain manuals infmes magntoscopes coren

The color red is a little less ugly in person than in the image .. only a few

Overall, a good machine trs

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>Update of 10/08/04:

Apart from small criticisms above, I do not regret my purchase. If you intressent effects, consider this machine. Cest cest sure sucks to have to look all the time to edit his pRSET, but once all good rgl EST nickel! Srement can beat the rack, but with the pdalier control MIDI-lugging and then in addition to the rack, cest galre if you add a wah and / or volume pedals we swim fast in the cblage and shit</span>

Boss GT-6B
Preamp, bass multi-effects, for details, see below.


Using not too complicated, as always with a clear manual boss.


This is where it Coisse. The sounds are really bad. Unusable in a group, it's just good for the clone Pascal Mulot! Below any definition, not at all realistic preamp, effects for most useless (and I do not mean the factory presets, sad ...)


Some pedals (boss, for example) are well chosen and it is cheaper and it will sound ten times better ...
