    Looks like they are coming in September. Modulation, Delay, Dirt, and EQ.

    I, too, think the MIDI connection is interesting. I wonder if the cable Boss designed features a 5-pin connector on the other side (I think I read something about using an adapter for the cable, but I'm not sure what they're talking about). I'm also wondering if there's any lag/latency issues when switching.

    The two pair of input and output are also an interesting feature. I noted how the overdrive/distortion/dirt pedal does not have the same two pair input and output ports.

    I wonder if these pedals are going to be buffered like the some of the stompbox/floor pedals in the past.

    Very interesting group of pedals that I'm definitely going to check out.

    Thanks for posting/sharing.

    The MIDI connector is for a BOSS TRS/MIDI.

    "The BMIDI-5-35 is a special cable with an angled 3.5 mm TRS connector on one end and a standard 5-pin male MIDI connector on the other, allowing you to connect to external MIDI-equipped devices such as pedals, effects switchers, and MIDI foot controllers. Made from rugged, high-quality materials, BOSS cables deliver performance you can count on."

    Exciting news, provided they are built Boss-tough and also sound excellent. They seem to have everything covered....
    ...except for the one thing that I'd really need, being a reverb.

    RV-6 is decent, unless you want Strymon levels

    it's like they took families of effects pedals and put them into one unit. the is pretty low considering what you get.
    Did you see the SY-300 ($700)? It sounds amazing compared to other guitar synths.

    I really don't like the form factor.
    I prefer the built-like-a-tank older models...
