A Huge Selection of BOSS Effects in One Pedal
No matter what style you play, its easy to craft your own personal sound with the ME-80s wide range of built-in effects. A complete history of gig-ready BOSS tone processing is at your command, from multiple overdrives and distortions to wahs, mod effects, pitch shifters, delays, and beyond. BOSS groundbreaking Multi Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology is represented with the unique, spacious ambience of Tera Echo and the distinctive tone-shaping possibilities of Overtone. Updated COSM preamps include new additions such as Crunch and Metal, plus an AC preamp designed for acoustic/electric guitar. The onboard expression pedal can be used for foot volume and pedal effects like wah, octave shift, and Freeze, and its also possible to control effects parameters such as mod rate, delay oscillation, and more for expressive real-time sound shaping.

Instant Gratification with Dedicated Knobs
Unlike typical menu-driven multi-effects processors that are complicated and unintuitive, using the ME-80 is as easy as using a stompbox. Effects are organized into eight logical categories that can all be active at the same time. Seven categories contain multiple effects types to choose from, plus dedicated knobs for selecting a type and adjusting it with a set of parameters youd find in the pedal version of the effect. The Pedal FX category has its own knob for quickly assigning a particular effects type or function to be controlled by foot with the expression pedal. With this familiar and friendly interface, youre able to dial up and play great tones instantly, just like using a large pedalboard filled with your favorite stomps. But a major advantage over that pedalboard is that you can to save all the current knob settings to one of the ME-80s 36 user patch locations, allowing you to recall custom effects configurations at the touch of a pedal.

Stompbox Immediacy or Multi-FX Power: You Decide
The hands-on experience that stompbox control provides is perfect for tweaking tones as you go. However, there are times when switching among an entire group of preset effects is more efficient, such as when youve set up complex tones for different songs. The flexible ME-80 supports either approach, giving you the best of worlds. In Manual mode, the categories function like individual stomp effects, with instant adjustment via the panel knobs and on/off control with dedicated footswitches. By entering Memory mode, seven footswitches are automatically reconfigured to select user or preset patches and patch banks, letting you recall complete multi-effects setups directly. One footswitch on the ME-80 is dedicated just for mode switching, so you can toggle between Manual and Memory modes any time you want, even in the middle of a song.

New Footswitch Design Delivers Twice the Control
The ME-80 offers easy usability while performing, with eight multifunction footswitches for direct control of effects on/off, bank/patch selection, and mode switching, plus convenient access to alternate functions such as tap tempo, tuner, looper control, and more. A special control (CTL) function is also assignable in each patch, letting you toggle grouped effects on/off or adjust a specified parameter in real time. The newly developed footswitch style provides two switches in the space occupied by one in previous designs, allowing BOSS to equip the ME-80 with a generous array of foot-operated controls while keeping the unit extremely compact and mobile. In addition to the eight main footswitches, the expression pedal is equipped with an integrated toe switch that toggles between foot volume and the current Pedal FX setting.

USB Audio/MIDI Interface Built In
Via USB, you can connect to your computer and capture the output of the ME-80 directly into your favorite DAW to record pro tones with COSM preamps and effects. Its also possible to monitor the ME-80s effects sound while recording an unprocessed signal into a DAW track; after the fact, use the USB Loopback function to re-amp the dry track with the ME-80, tweaking the knobs as you listen to the song to capture the perfect tone. MIDI transfer over USB is also supported, allowing you to select ME-80 patches from your computer, send expression and control pedal data into your software, and swap patches via BOSS TONE STUDIO.

Edit and Organize Tones and Connect to the Web with BOSS TONE STUDIO
Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO application provides an inviting graphical interface for tweaking the ME-80s effects from your Mac or Windows computer through USB. The software makes it easy to save, edit, and organize your patches, and to load them into the ME-80 as needed for different gigs and other applications. If your computer has Internet access, BOSS TONE STUDIO also provides an integrated connection to the BOSS TONE CENTRAL website, allowing you to preview and download gig-ready patches created by top guitar pros directly into your ME-80! In addition to expanding your palette of tones, these free patches provide solid foundations for creating your own patches with the ME-80s extensive array of effects.

Bought this when it went on sale around Christmas time...this replaced my ME50, took a little time to get used to the subtle differences....but wow....almost any tone is achievable. Overdrives and distortions are much better than previous Boss multi pedals. Looper is a excellent addition. My only complaint is the volume pedal. Its smaller than my ME-50 and not near as rugged. Just something I have to get used to. But all in all was more than happy with the purchase.

I use the Boss me-80 and it is an awesome solid tool. I run it through a Marshall jmd:1 . Lots of custom tones and fx combos easily programmed or ready on the fly in a live setting or studio recording. It is not as expensive as other brands but it does compete with its quick user friendly format and instant available options that cater to a fast creative workflow. A great quality and price for a low budget. I have been financing gear at Long -Mcquade for 20+ years. My #1 choice for all my musical gear needs . Always great deals, excellent friendly knowledgeable helpful staff. You can hear the boss me 80 guitar multi FX unit used in many of these studio session recordings : https://www.reverbnation.com/symphonicnv

After dumping my Boss multi effects unit in the early 90's I swore I'd never go back and I used nothing but stomp boxes since then. It took this long but when I saw the ME-80 I was cautiously optimistic. The fact that I could operate it as individual stomp boxes or programed patches was great, but would the sounds be up to snuff? I've never been a fan of Line 6 distortions and didn't know what I was going to get from the Boss unit. One test drive removed all doubt. The amp Sims and distortions and over drives sound just like the stomp boxes. The reverts delays modulations sound great. The harmonizer tends to get lost on 3rds but cripes so does the stomp box lol. Everything is so well thought out that I have a hard time coming up with my usual niggles when it comes to reviewing a piece of gear. You usually always wish a unit like this did something extra or different but this thing does things I never even though of like the pickup Sims which sound great and are very useful. I'm sure this was designed or had high input from a gigging musician! I could not be happier!

If you have an half decent amp, this is the pedal for you. I have owned a Digitech RP350, a Digitech RP500 and a Line 6 M13. this beats them all. While the Line 6 was easy to program as it had no amp simulation, the DIGITECH products were complicated and needed a lot of hours to understand. Some of the Line 6 effects left a lot to be desired, especially the modulations. The ME 80 is intuitive, logical and the downloads available are abundant and you will find something for everyone's taste. I can program the pedal to turn my Fat 50's pick ups on my Strat into humbuckers if I want to. I am 53 years old and find this easy to run and program without looking like I am tap dancing on my pedal board. Sold all my analogue pedals including my Wamplers, MXR, TC Electronic etc, with no regrets. Manual mode and patch mode work equally well. You can use Manual Mode as 7-8 individual pedals or in User mode as a live set list. Way less complicated than the GT 100 , but has most of the patches from that unit. Great service from Randy and Blair.

After trying out several other multi-boards (Line 6, DigiTech, Zoom), I settled on this BOSS ME-80. Some of the others may have a few more gadgets, but scrolling through screens and trying to learn all of the technical aspects of running them is clumsy and painful. The BOSS rig takes all of 20 minutes to figure out, as everything on the board is laid out in an easy-to-understand, common-sense fashion. A "shout out" to Brian at the Halifax L&M for excellent service.

Considering what it can do - both built in effects/pedals, what you can download and what you can program yourself...you can save your money on any other pedals! Lasts for hours on batteries...great for quick setup. I saw a demo and had to have it!!!
