A ton of powerful effects in a single unit

The BOSS ME-80 isn't a one-trick pony; this unit is an entire library of effects. Distortions? Twenty-three of them. Modulation effects? Eleven of them. And the ME-80 uses some of the newest technology that BOSS has. The guitar preamp section uses the latest COSM technology found in their flagship GT-100 processor. You also get BOSS's MDP as featured in their Tera Echo and Multi Overtone pedals. There's also a built-in Phrase Loop function in the delay section with a very cool 38 seconds of record time. If you're looking for a robust, full-fledged pedalboard in a single unit, then you need to check out the BOSS ME-80 guitar multi-effects pedal.

Tweak, record, and re-amp, via USB audio interface

A USB interface lets you dig deep into the ME-80's settings to customize your sounds. Tweak your settings from your Mac or PC with the free BOSS Tone Studio software. This software makes everything from creating and editing patches to organizing presets and even downloading custom patches from top guitar pros fast and easy. The USB audio interface also lets you record directly to your favorite DAW. Just create the tones you want, plug in, and start recording. You can even record an unprocessed track while monitoring the effects sound. Then you can take the dry track and re-amp it as you tweak the effects settings to get the perfect sound. The BOSS ME-80 guitar multi-effects pedal is a great tool live or in the studio.

Great sounding, easy-to-use floor processor

BOSS understands that guitar players want access to powerful effects, but they don't want to get caught up in the menus and programming hassles of a multi-effects processor. The ME-80 puts BOSS's finest effects into a convenient floor processor with the feel of a compact pedal. Sweetwater knows that the endless scrolling through menus to find tones and settings can be a nuisance. Forget about menus and cursor buttons. Each section of the ME-80 has dedicated knobs just like an actual effects pedal. Tweaking your tone has never been easier.

PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY !

Just received a Boss ME-80 from Sweetwater on Saturday morning. Use to own a GT-6 & GT-8...hated them both.....not user friendly. Also owned a Boss ME-50 & I just gave it away to a friend. I was not expecting much outta this pedal.....BOY WAS I WRONG ! SUPER EASY TO USE & the tones sounds REALLY good. As usual if you really crank the Distortion tones, you start getting the "Digital" vibe. The Modulation & Delay tones are superb.....THEY REALLY SOUND GOOD. I have not "built" any patches yet & I have yet to go to The Boss Tone Library. Currently just using it in the manual mode, I haven't even read the owners manual yet. Ran it into the front a 100 watt Marshall DSL.....UN-FRIGGIN-BELIEVABLE !!!! The Compressed clean tones were superb & the Distortion tones was very robust. Gotta say this: I was not expecting much & this unit completely blew me away. The only bad thing: AC adapter was not included.....EPIC FAIL for Boss. The adapter cost $25. If I'm spending $300 on a pedal, it damn well better have an AC adapter included. Besides that, this is an very powerful tool for any musician looking for cool tones on the fly. My advice.....Buy the Boss ME-80 & prepare to be blown away ! (it's that good)

Love It!

I think I have tried literally 1,000s of multi effects pedals and finally found one that nails it. I was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on one of these. They are in great demand since they are new. I am a tube amp pedal board kind of guy for the last 30 years and finally boss made an easy to use all in one, with great quality tones. I would have paid twice the price for this. What a bargain! The only surprise for me was that it was a little smaller footprint then I expected which is also a bonus. Nice and compact and well constructed. I love this thing!

What I have been looking for

This is the one I have been looking for. A multi effects board that is easy, intuitive, flexible, and sounds good but doesn't cost a fortune. Walking out of the store, I knew everything I needed to know to get good sounds. I compared a tube screamer to the TS-808 setting and could not tell the difference. It has a wide variety of overdrive and distortion tones so you should find something that suits your taste. I previously had a Digitech. It was too complicated and took too much time to adjust. Most importantly, it did not have good tone. Finally, it seems to have clean pass through so I can enjoy pure tube sound.

Great Multi-Effects Unit

I upgraded from a Boss ME-50 to the ME-80. This eliminated the FS-6 pedal I was using to scroll through my user sets. It eliminated the wah pedal I was using. The ME-80 provided one more setting in each bank I write. When I switch from one setting to the next, playing live, sound is virtually seamless. Being able to interface on the computer to make changes/edit is real convenient. Having access to an internet library of downloadable tones is really helpful, and saves time. I can download a tone close to what I'm looking for, then tweak and save it. For me, this upgrade has been super helpful, and didn't "bust the bank" to buy.
