  • Initial uninformed opinion on Boss GP-10?

    I figure this is a good place for asking VG fans if the last update hasn't totally nuked this subforum. So Roland/Boss dropped this at Musik Messe: http://www.rolandus.com/blog/2014/03...tar-processor/ So VG, GR, and COSM in one box sounds like a lot. But I don't know those worlds yet. So I'm hoping I'm asking those who know: Are the indicators that this is going to be reasonably serious kit or just a toy?

    Boss makes some decent multi effects units. I haven't heard that one specifically but I've heard many of its big brothers and they are very versatile for getting different tones.

    I'm not into the whole programing thing myself. I only use multi effect units like that when I'm recording where I have time to tweak all my parameters in.
    I've used them live but I prefer to have pedals I can tweak at a moments notice and not have to dig through menus to tweak one out of a thousand different
    tweaks. In other words if I have to think about my gear on stage my mind isn't going to be on the audience.

    If you have the knack for it and want to build all your presets in banks its an excellent way to go.
    In my case I use many different guitars, and when I switch them out all the presets I built for one may or may not be any good for another guitar.
    There is a Boss ME - 50 I thought about buying. Its got allot of knobs for hands on tweaking and it might better suit live work.

    I have seen many guitarists go the multi unit routs but there aren't many who can make them sound really good live.
    Mainly because they tweak the settings in a small room at low volume. Then when they play live and crank it up
    all those settings sound horrible, especially having too much drive so they play at lower volumes.

    If you go that route, be sure you build your settings at stage level amp settings, then use them at lower volumes.
    This is a matter of gain staging and how the ears perceive sounds at higher or lower volumes so the closer you can be
    in volume building presets the better. You'll find you don't use nearly as much drive and effects at higher volumes than you do
    at lower volumes.

      On one of my units, I lower the setting to -4db, so I can use my pre sets in a live setting.

      Boss GP-10 TOP THINGS TO KNOW
      http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/ind...85343#msg85343




      For me the most significant feature of the Boss GP-10 is using the 8 in - 8 out 24 bit Audio I/ O channels ( separate audio Channel per string) for "Re-Guitaring" - or triggering Ni Reaktor synths without MIDI latency

      this Boss GP-10 feature alone replaces / duplicates about $1k of external gear required for VG-99 / GR-55 to duplicate this feature.

      1) RMC Fanout box: $499

      2) 8 In / 8 Out Audio Interface $499

        Fireworks factory boss Martin Winter stopped to help at the scene of a fatal car crash before he was jailed.
        Winter is serving seven years for the manslaughter of two firefighters who died in an explosion at the Festival Fireworks factory at Marlie Farm in Shortgate, near Lewes, in December 2006.
        But an inquest was told how the 52-year-old tried to help when a Brighton GP collided with a young family.
        Winter was jailed in December along with his son Nathan, 25, after they were convicted of causing the deaths of Geoff Wicker, 49, and Brian Wembridge, 63.


        The fatal crash happened on December 3 2008 while Winter was awaiting his trial at Lewes Crown Court last year.
        Dr Petros Moschat, 41, died instantly when he lost control of his VW Polo as he went to overtake a car at The Broyles in Ringmer.
