Its OK

Tim6819, 23.07.2017
I ordered this to replace a complicated pedal board set up, because I was sick of tap dancing. The concept of being able to use Boss effects, plus switch in loops containing my other pedals and programming it so one touch of a pedal could select all manner of different sounds appealed.
Problem 1: The loops are 'joined' in the signal path, so you can't have loop1 (a POG) at one end of the signal path and then a few of the MS3 effects and then loop2 (a delay) at the end... the loops had to be together, so its not very flexible. Problem 2: Its really not very nice to program. I'm sure plugging it into a PC and using the editor makes it easier but trying to set this up in a rehearsal room with the band was an utter pain, and was too long winded. I got massively frustrated and gave up with it.

Its nicely built, and the effects inside are very good - although the rotary sounds are nowhere near as nice as the Boss RT-20 which is ironic. Its quiet in operation and the switches feel robust yet positive.

To be honest, I've sent mine back - it didn't do what I wanted it to do and the operating system was a deal breaker for me.

To sum up - some great sounds, some great ideas but just not quite flexible enough.

Functional, user-friendly, versatile

Tim96, 11.07.2017
The Boss MS-3 is my switchboard on the pedalboard and is incredibly versatile.
You have the usual BOSS processing quality. Easy to control, all controls feel high-quality and the foot switches are also very smooth, but not too easy.
All in all, until I am very satisfied that the only thing to complain about is that the four-cable method is not strictly applicable. You have to renounce them to one of the loops. That must then take into account when creating the patches, with.
Who does not need many pedals on his board, is well advised. It is also designed to connect its absolute favorite pedals with it.
The in-build effects are of good quality and convince me.
Conclusion after a short operating time: Very good.
