    the gt-8 is fantastic - I'm using it with a tonelab as a midi slave. the gt-8 is mostly for effects, although some of the amps are great when you set it up with "tone modify." the internal wave pedal is very fun. I never had a gt-5, but I've already programmed it to make a reverse divebomb when a patch is changed, and also I've set it up so i can do each patch change with a fade in - it can be very expressive.

      Just curious...I think it would be cool to ditch my pedals and amp and just be able to run something like this. It would be a nice clean setup with an endless array of tones.


      While I wouldn't get rid of my MESA F-50 combo I have thought of this many times myself. Looks like it makes more sense to have a great stereo amp with a flat response and some great monitor or PA speakers.

      Thoughts?....

        Can you transfer patches from older GT units (GT-5 or GT-6) to the GT-8?

        also, are they going to come out with a gig bag/carrying case for the GT-8?

          I should be joining the "GT Club" sometime early next week ... and may even be able to do a shootout with my Tonelab SE before it is sold.

            looking forward to those clips.

            I don't think you'll find every single thing in there useful, but I've been amazed by the GT-8 every time I've played it. It does the mutron, it does the robotalk, the seek wah, the bi-phase, the slow gear, etc. There are so many great effects in here it would be well worth it even if you didn't use any of the dirt pedals or amp models.

              Does anyone know if the GT-8 is vastly superior to my old GT-3. Does it have a higher bit rate.

              On my GT-3 if I put on too many effects at once or have complitcated patches involing the harmonizer. I get a gap of silence when I switch patches, and sometimes some latency while playing. Is this problem resolved on the GT-8?

                  I'd be interested if you spell out how you made patch changes fade-in.

                    For those kinds of questions visit the www.bossgtcentral.com GT-8 forum. There are many folks there who have used or did use a previous model and can speak directly to your questions.

                    I love mine! The dual amp feature can give you some huge stereo tones.

                      I'm guessing that I'll mainly be using the clean amp models and incorporating outboard fuzzes for dirt ... but may delve into the hi gain amp sims a bit when recording clips.

                      What parameters can be assigned to the momentary control switch on the GT-8?

                          I can't get the delays on the GT-8 to self oscillate ... does anyone know of any settings that will allow for this to happen?

                            Have you tried the dual-delay in series...that was how I got it to oscillate. Turn feedback and level way up on the first one, then start adding feedback and level on the second one and you should be able to get it to oscillate forever.

                              I'm still in search of an analog-tinged, oscillating delay setting, but I am enjoying the GT-8 even more each time I experiment with a new feature.

                              I cycled through almost every amp model, stomp box sim, and most of the effects earlier this evening and ran most of my outboard pedals in the loop ... though there were many interesting combinations, I only managed to develop one complete preset and a couple of partial ideas ... even with my years of experience with multifx/modeling units, I can tell that it is going to be a while before I have a total understanding of how all of the GT-8's features interact.

                                If you are thinking about getting a GT-8.

                                Stop.

                                Go straight to your favorite guitar gear dealer and get one.

                                Plug in.

                                Smile.

                                No regrets.
