YanLowFreq's review - Boss ME-50B

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
+ + PRICE



UTILIZATION

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.


SOUND QUALITY

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

OVERALL OPINION

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.
