Boss ME-25 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal Reviews4.6/5.0 based on 7 customer reviews
The Boss ME25 has been a great tool in my studio for recording guitar and bass tracks. There are tons of great tones and effects to choose from, and the Freeze effect is hours of fun just on its own! Also, the built-in looper is perfect for layering or even just practicing scales.

40 years-advanced guitar, not pro but good enough.
Very nice.Absolutely better than any of the GT units. If you don't need/want all the extra stuff built into those tanks then this is the one for you. No nonsense, straight-ahead easy programming. Ten minutes with the manual and you are set to go. Cheaper than a bunch of boxes. Straight into the front of the amp. The preamp models are a plus. I set up a single channel for clean, next one clean/chorus-delay, next one crunch and the next one lead. Then going backwards from the clean I set them up the same except I went from clean to crunch to lead for a variety. Get exactly the same result as if I had seven different pedals in a row but not its one push instead of two or three to get my effects where I want them. Good tone, good sounds. Thank you Alan Carter for the sweet deal. You are an asset to your company and your efforts at customer service are top-notch! Thank you.

Almost as good as it gets!I am an advanced guitarist, been playing for 22 years consistently.
Playing through an all tube Fender Silverface Champ w/ Weber 8S speaker, JJ tubes, EVH cable, stock '09 Fender American Deluxe Strat w/ SCN pu's.
This unit sounds incredible on almost all of the 60 presets. Sound stack and 'Solo' features work great.
I actually can't believe how good this things sounds. I have a Fulltone OCD pedal, Boss BD-2, Boss MT-2, TC Electronic Nova System, Zoom G2, Ibanez Tube Screamer TS9DX. This thing is equally as good. I'm not kidding. I am very very picky with tone and have a very good ear. Don't even think about playing this through headphones or a solid state amp. You gotta have pro level: pickups, cables, and amp, then you're ready to hear the true tone of this unit. IT FRICKEN' ROCKS!! The MetalHarmony preset is SO fun to play. The wah is obviously not as good as a Vox wah or Crybaby, but is pretty good.

Boss finally gets it right!!!Recently purchased the Boss ME-25. Finally, they get it right. Its a working man's effect unit and boy does it rock. Killer boss effects, looper, new freeze effect is groovy! 60 memories, and expression pedal, and totally user friendly. Plus, Librarian software for managing your patches, and Sonar 8.5 LE. I was blown away that boss made sure Sonar worked with the ME-25, and it did flawlessly. Simply, Boss has given us a unit that we can use everyday, or on the road without having NASA step in and program it. We musicians really dont want to spend time programming in a live situation, just a tweak and thats it!
Thanks a bunch Boss, you make me wanna go and get a Boss tattoo!
Bottom line the ME-25 is a superb unit, and a total must buy!

Boss ME-25 and all of it's friends.I did not buy this unit at Sweetwater, but I do own it, and it is an excellent piece of hardware. It functions as advertises as a mid-range effects processor, amp modeler, looper and audio interface. The effects are all customizable. For the price, I'd say its a good value.
I needed to loop effected guitar phrases in short patterns, and short of buying an RC-30 and 3 other stomp boxes for effects, this is an all inclusive. The trade off, of course, is the 38 second limit on one loop channel. I would have liked to have seen some better filters on it, as the expression pedal is quite limited to the 4 listed functions... But its a 200 dollar pedal.
I have to do some testing to see if the Audio Interface can capture a Stereo Signal, as the input appears to only support mono, however it has L/R stereo out. I dont know if its true stereo or if its just splitting the mono signal. There are no effects like ping-pong or panning that would suggest that it is full stereo.
It linked right up to my DAW (Sony ACID) without issue after drivers were loaded. Sound is clean when recording and playing back.

had a gutar ever sense i was 10... now um 50 n still tryin.
boss me 25the format is more like a zoom multieffx i utilised at one time...a little confusing at first but after reading and trial n error, you start to understand more about it. i am no tec head so if i can figure it out i think most people can. i had an me 50 and the effex are pretty much the same thing, the me 50 just had a more user friendly format. it would have five stars if it had the me 50 format, the quality n sonds of both units is the best money can buy as far as that goes i think.
