Audiofanzine FR's review

Boss ME-8B
(Originally written by seb_c_bien/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Plastic housing... but sturdy anyway.

Effects:

- Compressor

- Defretter

- Octaver

- EQ

- Distortion, overdrive, fuzz

- Humanizer

- Synth

- T-wah

- Chorus

- Flanger

- Reverb

- Delay

- Tuner

UTILIZATION

Very comprehensive

Easy to use

All effects can be edited like on an effects pedal

But you'd better not have a too big shoe size...

SOUND QUALITY

Positively impressed.

Compressor: good but rather aggressive

Defretter: Quite awful

Octaver: very good but can only transpose one octave below (big organ sounds are not possible)

Distortion, fuzz, overdrive: Multi-effect processors can't give good results when it comes to these effects...

Humanizer: Good effect with comprehensive editing possibilities but quite unique sound (you won't need it every day)...

3-band EQ: simple and effective

Bass synth: Not convincing, very heavy sound...

T-wah: Good

Chorus: Excellent from crystal-clear to rich and psychedelic effects

Flanger: Same thing

Delay: Awesome, a real delay!

Reverb: Very good (with hall, room, plate algorithms)

If you want to switch to tuner mode you'll need an additional footswitch (e.g. FS-U).

Very comprehensive and effective effects processor with a good sound quality. You'll get it secondhand for a very nice price.

The overall sound color is good and only good effect pedals can compete with it.

LIKE VIRTUALLY EVERY MULTI-FX, WHEN YOU RECALL A BANK OR A PRESET THE UNIT GENERATES A SHORT LAG (not audible on stage and rehearsal situations).

It's also ok for guitars! ! !

I only miss a polyphonic octaver effect!

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it secondhand really cheap with the original user's manual and external PSU. I don't regret my purchase. This multi-effects sounds better than new processors. It sounds less digital. The sound has a digital touch indeed, but it's deep and reminds me of effect pedals!

GOOD GEAR!

The edition of sound effects or is it easy?

It takes a little getting used to all the same.
Is the manual clear and sufficient? ...dropoff Window

yes very clear and understandable!


SOUND QUALITY

Are the effects effective and sufficiently ADAPTS GPs?

The effects are parfaitemnt adapted bassists but the quality of certiains not Gaux them.
What instruments do you use?

2 Ampeg Bass body and fender

What are those you prfrez, you dtestez?

the octave is most excellent, reverbs and delay GNiales!
Compression, Qualizer are somewhat GROSSIRE but effective.
The modulations are just beautiful.
The fretless simulator; a real crap!
The distortion, fuzz and other OD as on any multi effect is not America but workable.

Some of the effects are well worth some pedals boss by far.


NOTICE GLOBAL

I do not know ...

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

I do not like this side all plastic!
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Oh yes!
How do you report qualitprix?

Very satisafaisant in secondhand.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...dropoff Window

Yes if I Faisai guitar; with a guitar he must do it very badly Multi-effect!
much better than the new generation ME-Me-20b and 50b as fewer synthetics, more musical, more flexible and latency between the patch changes a lot, but much less so than in recent prononcs 2!

Boss ME-8B
Multi fx very practical and complete (it contains all the bass pedals from home boss).
it is easy to use and can be found easily with a good sound.
I personally tried the Boss GT6 from home and I'm not found on the bottom, it is operated differently and I prefer the use of me8b and I find no difference in sound quality between the two models. I highly recommend to all. Price argus seems to me strange because I had bought 20000bef (500euros) some years ago ..

Boss ME-8B
Everything you need to be too little and even ...
trs effects facillement ditables
with no connection against computer (shame, but it is not be a bit old, no matter what the South has date)
an instrument input jacks unbalanced two outputs but no noise (except overdrive and fuzz) so ...
pdalier a rack ...

UTILIZATION

Trs simple config
the ditiion is really easy, even without a manual, people come here, everything is organized on the interface.
I bought used, no manual of the coup ...

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are good, but the factory patches are just some Exess, but everything is so cool .. ditable
is a multi effects for bass.
the synth bass is a bit heavy.

OVERALL OPINION

For a month.
it is very easy to use and complete (tuner and more!)
too bad there is no expression pedals. The Next-Generation home boss (gt6b) looks more complte level connectivity and a possde PDAL
no other models tested on a low but gfx8 zoom is much more complex to use.
trs good value qual / Price
for the price of the. more may be in the essay that j'aurrai gt6b but I recommend the me8b
