Remember the days (mainly 80's and early 90's) when boss was literally ruling the world at the field of fx devices? smile.gif They have to fight now and prepare something new because the world has changed a lot and the competition doesn't sleep. I wonder if they can fight back strongly enough to cut through again. I can't speak in the name of all, but at least within players I know boss is rather "nay" these days

I agree they aren't making the best of anything these days, seems they placed their bets more on innovative approaches but the guitar community is very traditionalist in some ways...

Yep that's well said. Anytime someone wants to cut through with a new designs etc it seems like all say "what for" smile.gif

So this is a small pedal switcher that has 112 FX in it. Not bad if the price is right, one can connect drive pedals to this and use the modulation fx inside it (which is how I like to use processors).



I did play with the current blues cube hot amp, wasn't bad at all but when compared in a store next to traditional amps one feels there's still room for improvement. Not sure if these will have the success similar to katana.

PS; Leaked info is they will release a waza slow-gear pedal.

Out here it's the opposite. Almost everybody has at least one Boss pedal on their board. Either a tuner (still one of the best), the Vibrato pedal, a Delay, the Harmonist, an EQ, a Blues Driver or a DS1.
The standout things about Boss pedals is that 1) they rarely ever break or fail and 2) their buffering is really good.

For folks that have pedals that they love and want to keep in their setup, even if they have a kemper or what not, this is a GREAT option. It's fully programmable so you can have a program for each set of loops that you want. Very handy. No more disco dance on the pedal board! smile.gif

They also released a mod and reverb processors similar to the dd500

I also have to agree. It seems they took a five year lead and squandered it. They are still relying on the same COSM algos that they have been using forever and they don't sound any better now than they did then imho. Granted boss does some things really well. Still, if they don't start to innovate a bit more, I can see them shrinking a good bit as a company. Maybe they will buy kemper smile.gif

The spec.s on these newer pedals might give hint on their upcoming processor range (probably be introduced at winter namm).

32-bit ad/da is pretty extreme even for studio standards, in theory it makes 194Db of dynamic range ohmy.gif not sure if they'll use these converters on a processor though.

But 96khz sample rate and 32-bit floating point is realistic and probably that chip will end-up in the new GT series. Sure such processor won't do the insane stuff these can but should make quite a difference compared to their current line of processors.

The RV500 and MD500 are really nice, but nobody is going to confuse Boss with TC, Digitech, or Strymon smile.gif. IMHO, Boss makes solid reliable pedals, and that's why they're popular, not because they do anything particularly innovative like those other companies do.

Since the Waza pedals I haven't noticed so much talk on their products, this got a lot of attention.

Its cool that it's a stand alone processor and also a programmable fx loop switcher. So if you want to patch a bunch of pedals in to your configuration, you can smile.gif Then you can have another patch that changes the order of the pedals and turns some off, etc.

I think it's the best thing they have come out with in years. Also works with their existing pedal line. So if someone has a wad of pedals, they can tie them all together with this and combine it with the internal effects..

That's really what makes this cool. It's a programmable fx switcher with built in fx. So it can work solo or in combo with your fave pedals. smile.gif
