  • Boss ME5 patches

    I was wondering if any users of the me5 would liek to share their patches so others can try them out.

    A bit time consuming I now, but I'm sure that some good sounds could br shared.

    Here is an eg from http://www.simonlees.co.uk/bossme5.htm#2

    Rhythm Sound:

    1. Distortion
    Mode 3
    Drive 7
    Level 6

    2. EQ
    High

      Hey Pink Jimi I can't open your ME5 settings are you able to email them to me please. jlohnz@gmail.com. I just got the pedal and hate going through the pain of creating a whole lot of settings.

        i'll try dude, but generally GMAIL don't do attachments too well...
        if they don't come thru, let me know, or go here to download a sysex zip (*you'll need a midi /computer interface anda program like midiox, an EXCELLENT freeware)
        me5 sysex zip

        there's a manual for it on my website, too, i believe it's on the "****************" page where this zip file resides..
        good luck, keep me posted

              Oooh. These are not the factory patches.

              There's a bizarre super-fuzz that's done with just the compressor and EQ, but if you play really gently it's totally clean, then turn up and it's approaching Fuzz Factory filth (without the squeals, natch).

                uh-oh.....
                if ALL the patches are bizarre like that, it's probably battery change time!!!
                when the memory backup goes, them boss boxes tend to re-set themselves in some really wickedly strange ways...

                that said, how's that patch set, anyways?


                one of my fav tricks is to crabk the gate way up with a nice long but faint echo with a couple repeats....
                overdrive to taste....but the trick is the compressor...put the sustain on 7, the attack on 1 or 2, cut some of the highs and set the output volume of the comp at 4.5 or 5......

                now turn your guitar down really far and bring it up slightly and play softly...you should be able to tease notes out sith vibrato abnd dynamics, before ya know it, you'll sound like you're playing backwards....once ya get that sweet spot!!
                try it!

                    There are some more conventional sounds in there too - lots of resonant noises based on a super-short delay.

                    I remember the reverbs being awesome on the ME-5 - have to have a play later.

                      Thanks Pink I downloaded midiox openned your file and it's a number and letter matrix?? is this midi code for your settings or did I do something wrong.

                      So far I'm loving the pedal it sounds as good as individual boss pedals better than any mutifx but not as good as a tube amp. It's easyer to lug around than a tube amp so I can't complain.

                              you can get some crazy tube amp sounds out of it after you play with it enough,,.

                              the midiox files?
                              you mean the sysex?
                              what ya need to do is get a pcto midi interface...m-audio makes a decent one called a midisport uno or something for about 30 bux..
                              it plugs in the puter's usb port.
                              plug the
                              OTHER ends into the me-5's midi ports.
                              i forget, you may have to reverse the plugs from what you think they are...midi in may be midi out...it's be3en a while...
                              then make sure midi ox is launched.
                              read the me5 MANUAL.
                              if everything is hooked up right, do a bulk dump into the machine...
                              and save as ME5_Original.syx or whatever....
                              then you can load the sysex files you dl'd from me into midi ox and send them back to the me5.
                              i forget what;s in there, been a while..
                              all my me-5's seems to have different patches in them these days.
                              i often just edit up something when i need it for whatever occaision...after 15 16 years, it's pretty much second nature.


                              the zip file i sent ya contains the factory presets (ME5_FP.syx)

                              and one version of whatever was in my machine at the time...
                              i'll send ya a few more one of these days.

                              but you HAVE TO READ THE MANUAL!!!!

                              or i have to write out settings...and honestly, the odds of that happening are about as good as dubya getting REAL.
