Hey guys are any of you using the boss gt100? I am considering one. I currently use a line 6 that the church is loaning me but want to get something of my own. I use to have a gt3 and liked it after l learn't to work it.

Thanks David

I've had one for several years along with its desktop brother (compatible patches, everything but the effects loop).

If you need several effects and like the all-in-one small size of these multi-effects processors, you cannot go wrong with this one. It is quality stuff.

The only drawback might be if you *gotta* have your green Tube Screamer (or similar) favorite effects pedal on the floor as your security blanket. Otherwise, you're stuck with the sounds in the box. Which are not bad at all.

Not even then - the GT-100 has a built-in effects loop that's movable/assignable on a per-patch basis.

I understand, but that defeats the purpose of the small footprint. That was my point.

As a recording interface, the GT-001 desktop doesn't play real nice on my system (laptop + Pro Tools 10). This is compared to my Focusrite Scarlett and Mbox. It can get glitchy and hard to fine tune latency issues. I also don't like that you can't record different sample rates. But the Tone Studio is a nice interface for editing patches and being able to record and reamp the signal is great.

I've just about got the money saved up to buy this. I only play at church, and go through the sound system. I have been borrowing a line 6 from the church but want to get something of my own. I tend to use different patches on the same song sometime depending what I'm doing with the song. I never had a bunch of pedals so I like to be able to do a quick patch change with tempo already set, and for a few solo lines here and there. Often we go to the next song very quickly with just a click. The multi effects lets me switch with just one press. I also like the idea of using the ctl pdeal for maybe a feedbacker to draw out a note here and there. I figure there are probably some usable presets and I also have a friend that is a real tone builder with his boss effects. It gets confusing trying to decide which to buy. Most time I find I like Joe's tones and he like mine kind of thing. Thanks for the input guys.

Why do I keep fixing things that work?

The only drawback on these is that you have to work out all your settings before you use it. Some of the patches are so varied in volume as well as the effect used.
You'll spend a lot of time editing and getting the order of your patches set up, but it is a nice unit.
You can add another controller pedal to the unit and assign it to do volume or wah without affecting your output and would suggest this for maximum flexibility.
Enjoy your new toy and spend the time learning how it works/performs and you'll be very happy!
Best regards, Woody
