A Huge Selection of BOSS Effects in One Pedal

No matter what style you play` it’s easy to craft your own personal sound with the ME-80’s 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 it’s 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 you’d 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` you’re 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-80’s 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 you’ve 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. It’s also possible to monitor the ME-80’s effects sound while recording an unprocessed signal into a DAW track. 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.
