Using the pedal isn’t too hard, but there’s a ton that can be achieved with it, so there is in turn a lot to know about. I’ve really only scratched the surface when it comes to the SL-20 as I’ve only used limitedly since I don’t own it. I haven’t delved into everything the pedal has to offer, but it’s got 50 different slice patterns with a tap tempo option, looping, and all sorts of effects. You can also do a great deal with panning with the pedal. A manual might be a good idea for new users, but I haven’t seen it so I don’t know how well put together it is.
The sounds possible with the Boss SL-20 Slicer are definitely unlike that you’ll find on many pedals out there. In fact, I can’t really think of any other pedals that can do quite what this one does. It’s a really fun pedal to mess around with and I think if you owned one, you’d be using it in a lot of songs since it can really add a lot. For me, it’s not the kind of effect I’d be using very often at all, but it’s certainly cool to have around in the studio.
The Boss SL-20 Slicer is a pretty awesome pedal overall. It’s not the most practical effect for me, but I can definitely see how players would get a lot of mileage from it. It’s not very cheap since it’s one of these larger Boss pedals, but it’s still not too expensive and it’s built incredibly well, as is the case with all Boss pedals. I’d recommend checking out the SL-20 since it’s a unique and interesting effect, but I don’t think most people are going to be needing it very often and therefore probably won’t need to buy it, but it’s a very cool effect to have around in the studio at least.

winneurman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" slicer + delay + delay = Wahouuu"
could not be more simple to use, clear and concise manual.
on this point I only takes 6/10 just because there is no backup system to remember your preferred settings.
boss had a little abused by proposing only four submissions on gigadelay there, y 'have not.
the effect is super effective as long as it is useful.
for realism, well then, the adjective is absolutely not suitable and it is anyway not what you asked ...
for the moment I do not use with the guitar (in sync noon with a bar dr-880 or Kaossilator Pro) but then I'll pass everything and anything in it (especially synths and exotic instruments tutti quanti), be it for experimentation.
as specified in the manual sl-20 responds admirably to the modulation effect,
and not as stated in the manual with a delay front and one behind the possibilities are multiplied by (and to be honest, but (2) delay is more than limited use for guitar).
bought a few days ago, we must recognize that this is not a pedal will match all guitarists (and very little has true mean).
the seller or the store I found even told me he did not understand the usefulness of such a pedal boss and he said it was completely missed ... hehe,
a guitarist nice but still.
To conclude, after a few days of use, I just already tell you that I do séparerais "NEVER"

vetjc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Punchy, Adjustable ... Very good indeed!"
But not edit the type setting preset is provided enough and you end up finding what we want in terms of pace for cutting.
It is a model of type and pedal while it is in the category effect guitar, it's perfect for synths. This is purely digital. Connectors: 2x In 2x Audio in and Out MIDI: 1x In for sync. Nothing less, nothing more ...
The config is so easy. The manual ... I did not even read to begin ... We come to find what one seeks in fiddling and testing the different presets. on the other hand, it only makes slicing ...
This is very efficient, very responsive and it 's really not made to be realistic. I use it with synths that are not equipped with arpeggiators or sequencers (including Roland JD 800).
I have gained here is one month for 100 € FDP not included. I tried many things before (always with Roland), the effects of EF303, the SP555. I had heard of the slice on Electribes Korg but I have not tried. The friendliest of this model is the ability to play on the attack and the length of the pulse (the opening of the filter ...).
Excellent value, especially in Cygnus' Yes, I make this choice without hesitation. However, it should want to do exactly that because this pedal does just that!

This effect is not new. It is found on the dj synth intro of "Will not Get Fooled Again" by The Who. A proposed dj PDAL this: the GIG-FX Chopper and his colleague labore over the Pro-Chop. Okay, its distribution is confidential, but several big names in the guitar use.
Boss A model proposed here over Labor under its format high-end: the double pedals.
- 50 rhythm patterns rpart in 5 banks of 10 patterns
- Effect level, level guitar for a mix prcis
- Stereo or mono effects (pan, 3D, table tennis, auto, ...)
- Rapid rhythm pattern adjustable
- CONTRL of the attack and the effect lasts
- 40-second looper
- Input / Output Stereo
- Optional expression pedals control various paramtres (tempo, attack, duty)
- Powered by six AA batteries (not economy!) Or sector (transformer not included)
Nice pedals, solid, well built, well finished.
Manual in English and in French ... when the seller thinks.
Usage is quite simple and intuitive.
Obviously good, can not remember all the rhythm patterns. Must therefore be noted his prfrs or search. But it is an effect of adventurers, so we forgive him.
The expression pedals, optional, is useful to be more cratif more ...
The ergonomics are well thought out, especially with the two pedals.
The effect looper is easily accessible and usable. This is not a complete looper like the RC SERIES ...
Although some sr regret not being able paramtrer their own rhythm patterns and some may stepfather redundant. But frankly, it Yadji plenty to do and to make the pedals paramtrer unnecessarily complex.
O put it in the chain of effects? O you want! Express! This interacts with other pedals effects.
In short, given the number of options and buttons, potentiomtres, pedals, hard to beat.
The effects are effective, it's the least we can say!
An agreement is enough to make music, including techno!
Simply gnial! What crativit to toe.
In addition it is possible to assay the amount prcisment effect for a discrete or rsultat spectacular.
Combine effects (flanger, delay, whammy, wah, ...) and the possibilities are dcuples.
In fact it is difficult to talk about quality or effect practitioner. This turns your pedals sound more or less complex rhythms, with more or less spectacular effects and PForm. It is a sound vritable exprience.
Well, is it still the guitar? I do not know. We amme often feel that this plays pedals alone. Is this still music? In any case it's Fast Fashion.
I bought this PDAL ds its release. Of course, it is CHRE. But so given your exact sound and the musical journey which she calls, the price is quickly forgotten.
See you soon enchantment few simple chords and costs that the pedals will make Russia.
I do not think it will help you develop your game dlicat. The guitar is sometimes barely recognizable. For it is a tool against cratif extraordinary. Almost an Entire instrument from.
Then try the STRP exprience?

Xavman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Fomat double Boss, what's solid ...
In terms of knobs:
setup the type of output signal (mono/stéréo/3D/pan ...)
knob to select the bank from some fifty different patterns
a knob patterns
a tempo knob which flashes beautifully in your pedalboard
a duty knob to adjust the length of the pattern
one knob for the attack to Attack of the effect
is complete, intuitive editing sounds and a manual that will be used primarily to control some parameters as the parameters of the retrigger mode (for use in the Midi)
Indeed effective and original, ultra creative ...
used with my guitars, but can be used with synthesizers and more ...
The pedal provides a looper mode that I thought most complete, excluding one can only loop the effect of the part you just played, it's just made with the purpose slicer is completed, it a little disappointing at this level, at the same time Boss was not released in the SL 20, an RC 2!
I have since early August, I can not get enough
I love the fact Slice, I find the effect ultra-creative, I do not like the looper function, unnecessary as incomplete ...
I have not tried other models because few share the AdrenaLinn competitor who has a similar effect ...
Suitable value is the boss so it's still not cheap but the quality is by appointment.
I do it again this choice because it easily became my main purpose to create ...
