    Boss GT 1000

    I'm only using it for effects and probably some OD/dirt in front of the amp.
    My pedalboard is too big and just impractical for ultimate effects operation.
    But here I have the cream of the crop Boss effects.

    Anyone else here use one?

    I've done the same in the past using the Boss GT 10, but in a W/D setup! :dude:

    I think that the trick is to spend time setting up all your patches properly and just free your attention up to sing and play.

    Very nice. I have the GT-100 hooked up to my DSL40CR and VS65R in 5CM and it does the business.
    I think the GT-1000 system is a progression of the GT-100 so should be very easy to use, especially when hooked up to a PC for the TONE STUDIO app. With TS you can set everything up in real time, seeing all the parameters for a module at once.
    Brilliant!
    I am tinkering with going the other way too, and building a small pedal board with the 5 key effects I always seem to come back to with the GT-100.
    It is comparatively expensive compared to a GT solution, with all the myriad of bells and whistles available.
    I may abort and stick with just the GT-100 if it gets out of hand!

    I have spent the last few months downsizing my pedal board. only thing on it, is my wireless, a volume pedal, a wah, and a tuner. I don't use any effects. straight JMP tone and my volume pedal has a 15 db boost.

    Chrome, if you are a gigging player does that set up not limit the tones available to you?
    I mean, sure of course it does however you then are playing basically one style / genre of music?

    If only I could, sing and play,
    I do use the vox tone lab in the same scenario though.
    Cheers

    I have a GT-5 that is still relevant as far as I'm concerned. It has some useful effects but no vibe... Best way to use is turn off all the modeling crap and start from scratch with a basic chain. Another down side though is the ability to tweak via midi thru 3rd party software. So much latency. GT-1000 must be light years ahead of the GT-5.

    Yes, but as you stated, I do primarily play a dedicated style of music. I perform in two different bands with very similar types of music. my own band Shady Sadie ( a southern rock/classic rock band) and a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band called "I Ain't the One" so both entities are very similar in style of music. its the style I have pretty much stuck with my whole life.

    Pretty much the same here, but
    NWOBHM, so I get stereo typed.

    The Boss GT 1000 might be going on Ebay.
    I tell you what, pedals are saner to tweak than a scroll page multi effects unit This unit can be tweaked on the iphone/ipad/comp.
    The effects are pristine in the gt 1000, and the processing power is huge.
    My pedalboard is always there for me and I might use that as much/alternatively as this. I guess I always planned to replace my GSystem that I sold years ago, and this is an upgrade from that, effects wise that I gassed for.
    But the way these delays and reverbs sound with my amp are preety nice.

    At the end of the day its just another toy that I might sell in a week and try another. :)

    Lots of good all-in-one effects boards on the market now.

    I want to try the ISP Theta Pro desperately.
    From what I've heard, the tri-chorus is to die for.
    But for the same money, I could get an FM3 when they hit.

    Then there's the Mooer boards for those on a budget.

    I like the look of that unit. I'm trying out units with a whah pedal all inclusive at this stage.

    I’m on holidays and have more free time, so am trying new things. :)

    If this is your first multi effect unit, it will be a steep learning curve.
    I started out with a GT-8, GT-10, and now a GT-100. The GT-8 was the hardest to use because it was my first.
    Each has got more complicated than the last, but the number of buttons has decreased with each new model.
    So more features to wrangle, but easier to operate!
    I would recommend the Tone Studio app on a PC or Mac, and give it a fair chance.

    I go back a bit with multi effects too. I even had a Roland GP8 in the 90's I think it was. My keyboard player talked me into it, he used a Mac on stage and used to trigger my patches through midi for each song live. Also the Digitech 2101, remember that one? I still have it.

    Never owned the Digitech 2101, but it was always in mind!
    Still think that series is pretty Awesome!
    I bet it would sound really good through cab sims we have now.

    This is why I come here-to get ideas. I'll have to try it.
