Professional solution for live and studio

11.12.2016
I use the Es-5 to store my sounds and to call them at the touch of a button. In combination with a device such as the Eventide H9, almost all sounds can be stored.

The great advantage of Es-5 is that the sounds can be adjusted very extensively. The internal amplifier can be used to adjust the volume of the individual sounds (eg boost for the chorus, etc.), the order of the effects can be freely selected and stored, effects can be controlled in parallel (eg Zerre und Delay) Possibility to listen to effects when the program is changed. (Very useful, for example, when switching from a delay or reverb to a drier sound, since the reverb flag is not cut off)

In addition, there is full MIDI implementation (clock and control of the memory, eg the H9, etc.)
And numerous other ways to reprogram the Es-5 for your own needs. Thus, for example, a different function can be assigned to all foot switches, if this appears to be useful. I have, for example, put on the mute button a MIDI CC command, which turns on the H9 tuner.


Even these are just a few of the possibilities.
So you can see that the use is anything but simple. Overall, the operation is very intuitive and who is willing to invest some time is rewarded with unimagined sound possibilities and full callability of all the puzzled sounds.

I have to remove a star because the Es-5, which is the little brother of the Es-8, does not have a switch for bank-down or changing the group (patches are organized in groups and benches) for reasons of space Must be programmed if you do not want to bend.
The processing is flawless and stable.

I use only 4 effects in my setup.
For all those who want to use more effects, the Es-8 is recommended, which offers probably more extensive possibilities.

Overall, highly recommended for those who want to concentrate on playing games instead of switching effects.

Small, sturdy but upside down ...

The +: compactness, power and flexibility and technical support
The -: inversion of the states of the CTL outputs, impossibility of updating, absence of momentary mode

Hello,
I recently bought the ES-5 Boss, and my first impression was disastrous, I could not manage the channels of my amp Diezel Schmidt. Armed with a continuity tester I understood why, the outputs CTL 1/2 and 2/3 have their states inverted!

I mean that if you set to [ON] (relay contacts closed) actually, the output is [OFF] (open)! I had a lot of morale before I knew what was going on. For me it is a production defect, it does not correspond to what appears in the manual. I contacted Boss who does not recognize the problem but does not deny it either ...
Warning, Steve, from the consumer service, took a lot of time to help me (I wanted a momentary contact). By dint of gamberge and tests I was able to discover all the power and flexibility of the trick.

Its compactness, power and flexibility still make it an excellent product that matches well what I was looking for.
I would therefore blame him for this reversal and especially the impossibility of an update that would have swept away the problem. In the idea of ??simplifying life, we would also have liked to have a momentary output state in addition to LAT, PLS, INV, and TP2 / 3/4 modes.

But since it knows how to do everything, I could still get it because in each patch, you can create 8 different assignments. All the switches are reassignable and a single switch can trigger many consequences, and many other things ... Powerful I tell you.
However I have not yet been able to test the midi outings ...
