    I used yesterday in my pedalboard to put two effects loops in my Hot Rod
    My opinion is super positive, because I can reduce the volume to wish for my Hot Rod would be unusable at home.

    Line selector (read switcher, A / B box)
    Two independent loops with adjustable level (- infinity, + 20db)
    8 connectors:
    - 1 input power supply
    - 1 output power supply (200mA max)
    - 2 jack> bypass
    - 4 jack> the two loops
    100% analog.
    Many modes of connection, each input / output jack can act differently in different modes.

    Very simple to use, the manual helps a lot, and, no need to grind 4h head to know how to connect everything according to what we want to do.

    No effect or a product, it is not the goal, however, it helps to create: the fashion "AB mix" effects placed in each loop are compared with independently adjustable level. We can thus mix multiple effects them or the sound of an effect with the clean sound of the instrument (if no pedal is active in one of the loops).

    For cons, the presence of a substantial blow, even in bypass (not true as in all boss pedals), nothing serious but it's important enough to be noticed.

    I use it for almost a year with a low use to mix the clean sound and the sound of a Big Muff (pedal guitarist who "eats" a lot of serious bass) or between other effects (Boss ODB-3 for example). This pedal allows me to keep clean bass sound with the attack and the crunch of another effect, perfect for a bass player who is looking for specific sounds while playing in a group.

    There are many opportunities to use this pedal, it can be helpful to anyone, and, in addition, is almost unique in its class.

    Only negative point for me: the price around 100 € new, it is expensive (to find used), and the ubiquitous breath.

    The trouble (for me): NO PhaseInversion switch 180 ° on the loop: I do not put my peus DynaComp Compressor (which is antiphase I / O!) For parallel compression! This checker is not designed on some FX TopTop!

    Manual short but explicit = nickel

    6 jack inputs behave differently depending on how you want to use the pedal (Swisse knife).

    Input and output power supply to receive and distribute power from a transformer, more good.

    Not true bypass pedal.

    Two knobs allow you to manage the volume of a particular loop or a particular line, convenient, people use it to mix the volumes of tackiness effects used simultaneous A and B which can give very nice rendering sound.

    Manages a knob on the mode selected, I will detail them all but there are not plenty to provide any combination or use you intend for the pedal (Swisse knife).

    The general configuration is a bit complicated but a comprehensive manual with explanatory diagrams of all possible uses, so it finally comes out easily.

    The pedal does its job, even if it is not true bypass, the bypass is relatively transparent and there is no noise when changing line or loop.

    His route the sound to anything, I used it for my looper effects on a pedalboard guitar / bass.

    I used it for over a year until I decided to separate my boards guitar and bass and to reduce them. It was perfect for me to activate multiple effects simultaneously with a single press of the foot. And volume knobs allow me to equalize the effects of free volume with the total volume of Songs or a concert.

    Only model I had, it is comprehensive and can serve multiple purposes.

    The price / quality ratio is very good when compared to other pedals loopers market (Radial Tonebone looper, for example), in contrast to a line selector ABY, it is expensive, for example, in short it must target its purchase, if you just want the ABY, do not bother to offer it.

    If I was brought one day want to re-expand my board, it would be to blow the game ...

    A pedal very, very effective if it is needed, it is usually chosen for use in precise we will not have fun to change all the connections when connected! But the use can be so varied that this pedal is a true "Swiss knife", a true marvel ptite!
    Personal I use to bypass my Pod A Move to the loop located between the guitar and amp.

    The volume knobs are useful to adjust the levels of the two loops from the direct signal or otherwise voluntarily or moderate to boost one or the other, or both.
    Note that this pedal, even if it does not have "True Bypass", is perfectly transparent when not activated.

    I have recently, and I'm already hooked! this pedal is great!

    It's the Boss so I am not too worried about his future and any problems I might encounter! I repeat a thousand times the same choice.
    This pedal has no equivalent or competitor in the same price range, or he must go and look at the big loopers of "trick-thingy" to several hundred dollars.
    Good value for money even though it's always a little bit of snap 100 Euros for a stomp box that is not really a ... LS-2 but this really simplifies life and once adopted it does not want to part with it!

    The connection is very simple just plug in the correct order and you're playing.

    As for the edition of the sounds there are ways to CRER combined effects. Indeed, the mix position can not mix the sounds they modulate them (exmple a filter in A and B modulation gives a mixture of sounds but not a modulation filter is obtained by connecting two pedals below).
    Other possibilities do not plug in loop pedals that can be used for various SETTING THE volumes.

    I possde few hours.
    The principle of selection of string is handy when you want to engage several effects at the same time, the screens and click on the LS2 to have it all at once.
    The possibility of creating combined effects (and unlinked open to new ideas with the old pedals.
    The little extra is the ability to power several pedals made room ssur power strip that supplies the chain effect.
    As against the pedals is CHRE for what it is because it sounds and does not edit it costs as much as a phaser or a delay.
    The LS2 is the new version of the old pedals PSM 5 boss that worked on the same principle but with a single loop and not volume.
    So a nice choice, but it must be useful, or when a small stock of pedals really want to have to invest in this product.

    The configuration could not be simpler, the only limit is your imagination the pedals. Since this is not a fact, rglage could not be more explicit and objective in terms of what you want.

    The manual? I have not needed it so simple, it is an A / B box!

    I use it now either A / B box with two amps to be simple to loop with two amps for a wholesale channel with distos and a channel with modulation effects on its clear, with a compressor input e. I do not fix on my final configuration since my PDAL board is being finalized.
    What j'apprcie is that the bypass is neutral, no transformation of the sound (it could have on the A / B box in digitech cheap as, for example) on the other hand I noticed that a little bit of spring when the same when a channel is supposed to be disables, but it is not given the low level Gnant

    I use it for some time but I am satisfied with their purchase.
    J'apprcie really versatile, especially since I'm not fixed on its end use, it allows me to test all possible configurations, I think I'll keep it long.
    I have not tried many MODELS saw that I knew what I wanted and j'tais satisfied in all BOSS pedals I have all the same tests before buy it.
    The price (110 at my dealer) is correct, we will see whether life is good (because it's the pedals that will serve me as finally) but the finish is impeccable.

    Grace the pedals, I finally found my sound I was looking for a way to shuffled the sound of my effects loop with a direct guitar (the one Manir dpart auxiliary console) and send it in a single channel amp (my amp has one channel). I find my Holy Grail with the LS2. Thank you Boss.

    It became the foundation of my sound of scratching. Moreover, this is downright transparent pedals. The possibility to feed my effects loop is a more carrment practical lugging a single adapter.
    How could I do without?
    It is in the $ 100 new. An essential investment in me.

    The other is to find config'm themselves.

    But the main is! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />

    This pedal is very well thought out and I was looking for without knowing it existed. Even my dealer do not know! It was necessary that I come across this site.

    Thank you BOSS for more convenient than MORLEY LEHLE and for the price and possibilities.

    I use it on stage to connect two basses (and NB4FL JAZZ BASS US + 3 pedal boss: TU2, and GEB7 LMB3) + a Yamaha electric guitar void.

    SUPER! I have to press the pedal and I immediately the sound of the instrument chosen.

    There may be a little breath on stage but it is negligible.

    In addition it has two separate volumes for the two main entrances to the 3rd set it must be the instrument that works in bi-pass position.

    The + is that you can connect 1, 2 or 3 different amps each with different effects and using the connection jacks and switch configuration and choose Switch.


    I did for istant used only once on stage and I am delighted.
    I have not tried other model since it occurs only in boss. Other manufacturers are only pedal switches without volume.
    The value for money is pretty well justified if you look at the competitors!
    Bought at 89 euros in Grenoble MICHEL MUSIC
    Now over time I see the strength and performance quality, but I do not take the risk because it is not an effects pedal so ..............
    In any case I advise those who use at least two instruments on stage, it does have only 1 entry on the console mix.
    Go, a reproach to the difficult if it could be more the function DI (direct box)! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" />

    I use it for over a year, and I can not do without.
    This is my first of this kind.
    I Describes the features above I love the most, so ...
    Report qualitprix excellent saw the possibilities of the device.
    I would do this choice with the exprience, and I wonder if adding a deuxime LS2 in my pedalboard ... OK, I go out!

    Nice bypass

    The Boss Roland company has been producing great sounding effects pedals for decades now. They have build various pedals for almost every single purpose one would use in either their bass rig, keyboard, or their guitar rig. They have successfully manufactured some of the world's first edition effects units and multi units and have set the stage for many other manufacturers to follow in their walking path. They build a system that gets quality pedals at affordable prices to the budgeted consumers.

    The Boss Roland company has been producing great sounding effects pedals for decades now. They have build various pedals for almost every single purpose one would use in either their bass rig, keyboard, or their guitar rig. They have successfully manufactured some of the world's first edition effects units and multi units and have set the stage for many other manufacturers to follow in their walking path. They build a system that gets quality pedals at affordable prices to the budgeted consumers.

    This is a great little pedal for those needing to run an effects pedal in a signal but want to option to take it out of the signal as well. The reason someone would do this is to have another effect in their chain or they would like to take an effects for whatever reason out of the signal chain at times. This pedal works great for what is does. It is simple and easy to use and have a great amount of possible operations.

    Looping modes

    AB: Alternate between the two effect loops
    ABypass: Effect loop A or bypass
    BBypass: Effect loop B or bypass
    A-B-Bypass: Switch between loop A, loop B or bypass
    A+B Mix-Bypass: Switch between both loops in series or bypass
    Output Select: Input is alternately connected to Send A, Send B or Output

    Specifications

    Controls: Level (A, B), 6-way Mode selector
    Connectors: Input, Output, AC Adaptor (In, Out), Send (A, B), Return (A, B)
    Current Draw: 25 mA (DC 9V)
    Weight: 410 g (15 oz.)
    Recommended AC Adaptor: PSA Series


    This is a great pedal for someone who uses an older effects pedal from the 70's or 80's that isn't true bypass and wants to remove it from the signal chain when not operating it. For example if you have and old MXR Flanger pedal from the 70's that has a lot of noise since and deteriorates your tone when running through your signal chain but still want to use it with your modern true bypass pedals...well this would be the pedal to use it with. You would hook it up in the loop A or loop B, then click the button on or off when you wanted to take it out of the signal. This would allow you to remove noisy old effects pedals that sound great but damage your buffered tone, you would hook this think up like a send and return on your amp and click the pedal on and off when you desired. Works great and is efficient and what it does.

    At new these pedals come in right at around $79, which is a great value for a pedal like this. If you need to remove noisy pedals and bring them in when activating then this is a great pedal to do it with. Other manufacturers make ones as well that are smaller such as the Keeley pedal which is about a third of the size. This one has more versatility though.

    That's my problem so far, all the configs
    or I tried, I always end up out of the board ..
    Yet it has not only negative aspects about the

    ears or configs. But for me it's at
    dynamics, there is something which is systematically
    out of my board. But I'll still try to use it
    and if I can I will publish.
    Basically, we should be able to try it on before config
    buy it ..

    I think I'll get rid of it but I still
