fmdlv's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Old but holds up"

Boss ME-5
Pdalier
Overdrives, distos
compressor
Equalizer
rverb
delay
noise-gate

Technology numrique 1st gnration
Audio / MIDI / headset
FX Loop External

UTILIZATION

simple configuration. Simple programming but sometimes without subtilis. Manuel more than complete.

SOUND QUALITY

Good, and Overdrives distos have made significant progress since (POD pedals lamp) and it is better to forget both the numrique not suitable such effects ME5 (my pedals SD-1 Japan is much more subtle on this crneau). Otherwise, the rest, the effects have not lost their effectiveness.
J'apprcie particulirement reverb "plate", the delay, unfortunately limits 500 ms, the chorus, noise gate (with rgler subtilis)
Levels rglages effects are not always the finest, but can get good sound, including sound (yes, I use it for audio too).
The job is assured.

OVERALL OPINION

Used since ... 25 years. ciblutilis and not a wrinkle on its strengths (forget distos). Unlike Jeancathy, I find trs robust (buttons and switches), except for the stickers that tend to block in case of overheating

At 80 euros occasion is a gift for replacing at least three four pedals

Boss ME-5
effects are
- Compressor / sustainer
- 3 distal from very soft to heavy in people walking by the crunch
- Hi middle equalizer bass tone and volume
- Chorus / flanger
reverb / delay

+ MIDI output for headphones ampi tuner

UTILIZATION

The setup is a little difficult to maneuver because you have to go into effect each section to find the right sound for everyone ... for those who love programming!

the manual is clear enough there at the end of the manual setting for an array of sounds that we will customize a pencil to write to remember in case the battery used to store the parameters would hs.

SOUND QUALITY

Contrary to what has been said in other post, I find that very convincing disto are, I have a pedal boss ds 2 etr I much prefer the sound of an open regime dito or disto 2 settles a bit more app

Other effects are very good, nothing wrong the above.

I use a ramjet, a godin st 4 I sell elsewhere!, Guitar Tanglewood TW 45dlx, which is not very suitable for the amp Attax 100 h & k, and finally my last purchase which I do 'm not a little proud Vigier Excalibur Ultra, which I made a post in the relevant field.

I do not like are too saturated, big sound dirty kind, I prefer saturations précisises style guitar hero. Otherwise I'm not refractory to all styles, because that's how it is changing in music. (Ie be eclectic).

OVERALL OPINION

that's about 15 years since I use it, certainly he n'st not all young but look at some multi effect today, he would always have its place among the muti effect of good quality.

If I had to change one day this kind of device I choose I can be the 70 or why not gt 8 or 10, but as long as I keep working!

jeancathy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Boss ME-5
For CHARACTERISTICS, see the description and view previous ones. Simple, Boss, pdalier very practical format. In short I since its release and it works.
Serious illness and major default: the empty fargilit chronic buttons; pdalier as those of that edition of the effects of connections and Jack.
For this reason, I put him as 6.

UTILIZATION

As said prcdemment, format pdalier practice effectively. A jack in, 1 out jack, you plug and forward.
The quality of the trs are good (top in their time because of the great HRIT ERRF GP8) a little distortion going on, but still largely effective. I play on the marshall mtal lamps: JPM JCM 2000 and superbass 100: His killer. The problem of this kind of hardware is to find the right SETTING THE all paramrtres all useful effects. We can do everything while back, but what about the rsultat? Not to mention taking the time to find rglages amp.
Serious illness and major default
In short, a purchase of 3200F at the time that I have never regretted.

SOUND QUALITY

More that the Boss had thought era Led noise-gate. Trs good, trs effective even if a little too carried away on the rglages.De addition, trs prcis for the clean and clear sound.
BMOL are a large echo too short (500ms) 1s t was better.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since its release in 88/90
+: Practical, crisp, efficient, easy to rglage and headphone jack to take along on duty holiday ..
-: Fragile connectors and buttons.
The report is qualitprix top.
Not only do I do it again this election, but with whom I play guitar want one too.

Zanzibar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Boss ME-5
The effects are
- Compressor
- OD / Disto
- Eq
- Reverb / Delay
- Chorus / Flanger

Sounds are ditables, you can connect a footswitch and even released in Stereo.
It is classic ... At the trs era (10 years) cost about 2500Frs. So an alternative INTERESTED c'tait the pedals and all the stuff that accompanied them.

UTILIZATION

Configuration and edition are simple. The manual is not used much.
Small LEDs indicate on what effect you are, and the small display shows us the value.

SOUND QUALITY

The clean sounds are not bad. Flanger and reverb are convincing.
The overdrive is honnte.
But the distortion ... I never find the sound. I have used on various Marshall (JCM800 two bodies whose lamps) ... and always synthetic and screaming ... Too bad ...
The scratch using change nothing.
As the reviews on the ME-50, I find it tends overwrite the sound is bte when using a Fender for his slamming!!

OVERALL OPINION

In the end I do is more! I do not play in a group (for now). I work in my home studio with Cubase plugins on ... Ok a is a real amp with real effects ............. The only time I spell c o is when typing a beef with collgues it dpanne well.
I like the edition of the effects (super intuitive), strong as it has on the t trs Malmen concerts, what a jack has made me pretty quickly
The report price is good quality especially for the era. OCCAZ now is a good deal even when.
Now, with the exprience I prfererais invest in spares pedals ... I would take the best of each brand, all-in-one dcoivent forcment.
