Nice little tool

By Bibi33, 26/06/2012
All the air of having been said:

6 blocks with multi effects to be noted

1 / A good (not an EBS C either) block compressor / limiter with switchable pedal an extra

2 / In Tuner mode, the block preamp / EQ is bypassed .... like no pedal

Also note that the term pilot block some effect (Ex: Block synth with resonance)


This architecture is simple but a glance at the manual from time to time to discover new things but overall the manual is very clear ...

After a year of use I still discovering

The sound editing is simple but the technology is very precise COSMOS also must put patience! The winning time not to stuff a 100-page manual will serve this incomprehensible precision


The effects are consistent for most and gives the "effect" wish

Next the effects, settings, is very famous COSMOS COSMOS! I did a test comparing a BOSS pedal phaser and analog phaser of this multi effect: The sound of multi effect is a bit colder, more neutral, what digital .....

I am the bassist with ME50B so I use it with a bass. Beware octaver -1 with the 5th string, not to blow the woofer. With my guitar and also the fact that will be tested with the sax and trumpet my brother soon

Well, it makes the world since the effects are linkable (accused stand up) I do not really have a preference and I BYPASS if I gene


After a year of use, I'm still very satisfied. I was not able to try other model before the GT range and was not intuitive enough for my taste.
For the brand, I followed a BOSS brand that I knew well already ...

I love the diversity in a single block pedal for a low price (it is available from 100-150 EURO used today)
* This allows low cost to have a palette of quality effects (digital) correct. We get by working out the sound you want and save.
* With the added kick drum, the ability to block the effects of tempo, small looper

Now, one of the best pedals pedalboard consists in EVERY area, the TOP but much more expensive. I do not regret my choice

very good pedal ...
I use both for the bass to the guitar
damage only to the expression pedal wah mode is not more customizable ...
say that the expression pedal should have a bit more adjustment possible
I love passing mode stomp box that can beat rhythm style bass drum ...


as simple as pedal and in fact we are far from taking effect multi head ...
you plug you play ...
after you watch it all ... how amméliorer
but hey it's a detail -)))


they are all very good ...
except sytnhé bass that are really crappy ...
poop in zero and one wonders how they could be replaced for aurra the product is at the top
j'aurrais erverbe loved one as a separate model on the guitar but hey
also several kinds of delays .. but ...
I compare the model for guitar that I also have it for that and it tells you also lon Product
I have both and both are top -)))


I just do without

YanLowFreq's review

Everything has been described. I just add a few remarks:

- 24 presets ONLY! I'm just saying, because used with 2 low, it is only 12 presets low. And 8 for 3 bass (fretless bass, 5 string, 4 string ... it is faster to 3). Knowing that the settings will not be the same as we play with headphones or amp, it still divides the whole by 2.
- Lack a small display for the names of effect rather than the No. ... it is twenty degrees!
- AUX mini-jack stereo ... odd choice. 2 RCA would have seemed more standard.
- Part master not removable. Big mistake.
+ Strength


the -:
- The wah wah works only down, not up ... wah damage. Even sad. Finally my personal, that's why I'm going to separate.
- The distos sound too digital for my taste (COSM = bof bof)
- Hold the sound does not polyphonic: big fail. In addition, its "hold" is a volume lower than actually came.
- The defretter is rotten

the +:
+ Limit and the sustainer (D-COMP)
+ Enhancer
+ The auto wah
+ Synths associated with the expression pedal mode resonance. Very funny.
+ HI BAND DRIVE. Well done!
+ The delays, excellent.


It does not bother ... I think I finally came back from COSM ... OS.


Used for 2 months. I like its versatility and potential fun, a nice toy.
Multi-purpose cheap, I prefer the Zoom and Digitech other, but it is unconvincing on a more serious (stage / studio).

Nice to work / play at home. My choice goes to the future multi effects Rocktron, and if it goes wrong, I will type in the single-effect accounting for TEC21 ampsim-drive electro-harmonix for synthesis and for Morley wah. This will obviously be much more expensive.

we do not go back


everything is very simple and instinctive


good in fact I'm posting this to say that the synth section is just deadly when it comes out sounds of modern electro-typed, on the other hand is not moog on it but it avoids that are a little worn bass synthe year 70.


So overall this pedal is great if you are looking for a modern (d'n'b, dubstep electronica in general) yet he must take the time to seek the ultimate sound, which I understand is far from finding the most bassistes.Je can say for myself that I'm low to the mister oizo and roni size and have a blast ..
