Its a quality pedal.
You can have your own presets with the different distortions on it, but u cant have 2 distortions running at the same time
#4
Yah I know but suppose I wanted 1 distorted rhythm channel, and then one lead reverb / distortion channel.. Is that possible?
#5
Yes it is quite good.

With the memory mode you can save up to 30 presets and switch through them. It has something like 22 different kinds of distortion, lots of modulation and a wah pedal, although you already have the crybaby for that i supposes (the boss me50 wah looses to a crybaby bigtime but w/e) The problem is that you cant have multiple distortions at the same time, and you cant have multiple modulations on at the same time (ie no chorus and harmonizer at the same time.


Go for it its a good buy

By multiple distortions at the same time..

If you already have seperate pedals, I'd stick with those/upgrade them rather than get the ME-50 to be honest.
there is no fear in this heart.

They are Boss pedals, so what would your reasoning be? It will make it tons easier to play live if I have the ME 50. It would cost me $150 for a reverb pedal, and another $80 or so for a volume boost for my leads. It would be three times harder to do live, and it would only be a bit cheaper. Not to mention how many extra wires.

From what I could tell, the ME 50 has the same sound as the individual pedals, right?

you can have multiple distortion presets but you cant have a mt-2 and a ds-1 playing on the same preset at the same time, if you catch my drift...


Oh yah, I get that. That's fine, I like the MT-2 tone anyway.

Its best used for live work as a front end to your amp

A lot of people mistake this unit as something to direct record with where its not so great, as a live pedal though it kills.

the boss imitations that they have on there (ds-1 mt-2 bd-2, od-1, od-2) are good, the other ones are not great but still usable.


Well the Boss sound is the one I'd use anyway.

Is the Wah any good, or should I keep my Cry Baby?

But if I mic'd the amp, it would sound good, right?

Yeah always sounds dry doesnt it

For direct recording your always better off with a modler of some sort vox, pod ect...

yeah did that just last week, sounds the same as if you mic any other amp, and keeps your levels between presets fairly level.

For sure

ME-50's sound great. I can't really think of anything I dont like about mine, only i wish there were two wah pedals, so i could do volume and wah or octave and wah or double octave or something cool like that

I had one but I sold it, didn't do it for me :\

Oh yah, how are the octave settings?


Decent. There is a harmonizer that you can set notes it playes, volume etc. The wah pedal can also be programmed to be like an octave plus or octave down pedal. The downside is that all 3 of these only work with single notes, and cant process chords at all.

The new Rp's are extremely good man

Believe me the new RP's are really something.
#34
The new ones are built like a tank solid steel and quality knobs too! I would bet anything if you gave one of the new ones a try you wouldnt beleive it.
