A Huge Selection of BOSS Effects in One Pedal
A complete history of gig-ready Boss tone processing is at your command, from multiple overdrives and distortions to wahs, mod effects, pitch shifters, delays, and beyond. Boss’ groundbreaking Multi Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology is represented with the unique, spacious ambience of Tera Echo and the distinctive tone-shaping possibilities of Overtone.

Updated COSM preamps include new additions such as Crunch and Metal, plus an AC preamp designed for acoustic/electric guitar. The onboard expression pedal can be used for foot volume and pedal effects like wah, octave shift, and Freeze, and it’s also possible to control effects parameters such as mod rate, delay oscillation, and more for expressive real-time sound shaping.

Instant Gratification with Dedicated Knobs
Using the ME-80 is as easy as using a stompbox. Effects are organized into eight logical categories that can all be active at the same time. Seven categories contain multiple effects types to choose from, plus dedicated knobs for selecting a type and adjusting it with a set of parameters you’d find in the pedal version of the effect.

The Pedal FX category has its own knob for quickly assigning a particular effects type or function to be controlled by foot with the expression pedal. With this familiar and friendly interface, you’re able to dial up and play great tones instantly, just like using a large pedalboard filled with your favorite stomps. But a major advantage over that pedalboard is that you can to save all the current knob settings to one of the ME-80’s 36 user patch locations, allowing you to recall custom effects configurations at the touch of a pedal.

Stompbox Immediacy or Multi-FX Power: You Decide
The hands-on experience that stompbox control provides is perfect for tweaking tones as you go. However, there are times when switching among an entire group of preset effects is more efficient, such as when you’ve set up complex tones for different songs. The flexible ME-80 supports either approach, giving you the best of worlds.

In Manual mode, the categories function like individual stomp effects, with instant adjustment via the panel knobs and on/off control with dedicated footswitches. By entering Memory mode, seven footswitches are automatically reconfigured to select user or preset patches and patch banks, letting you recall complete multi-effects setups directly. One footswitch on the ME-80 is dedicated just for mode switching, so you can toggle between Manual and Memory modes any time you want, even in the middle of a song.

New Footswitch Design Delivers Twice the Control
The ME-80 offers easy usability while performing, with eight multifunction footswitches for direct control of effects on/off, bank/patch selection, and mode switching, plus convenient access to alternate functions such as tap tempo, tuner, looper control, and more. A special control (CTL) function is also assignable in each patch, letting you toggle grouped effects on/off or adjust a specified parameter in real time.

The newly developed footswitch style provides two switches in the space occupied by one in previous designs, allowing BOSS to equip the ME-80 with a generous array of foot-operated controls while keeping the unit extremely compact and mobile. In addition to the eight main footswitches, the expression pedal is equipped with an integrated toe switch that toggles between foot volume and the current Pedal FX setting.

USB Audio/MIDI Interface Built In
Via USB, you can connect to your computer and capture the output of the ME-80 directly into your favorite DAW to record pro tones with COSM preamps and effects. It’s also possible to monitor the ME-80’s effects sound while recording an unprocessed signal into a DAW track; after the fact, use the USB Loopback function to re-amp the dry track with the ME-80, tweaking the knobs as you listen to the song to capture the perfect tone. MIDI transfer over USB is also supported, allowing you to select ME-80 patches from your computer, send expression and control pedal data into your software, and swap patches via Boss Tone Studio.

Edit and Organize Tones and Connect to the Web with Boss Tone Studio
Available as a free download, the Boss Tone Studio application provides an inviting graphical interface for tweaking the ME-80’s effects from your Mac or Windows computer through USB. The software makes it easy to save, edit, and organize your patches, and to load them into the ME-80 as needed for different gigs and other applications.

If your computer has Internet access, Boss Tone Studio also provides an integrated connection to the Boss Tone Studio website, allowing you to preview and download gig-ready patches created by top guitar pros directly into your ME-80! In addition to expanding your palette of tones, these free patches provide solid foundations for creating your own patches with the ME-80’s extensive array of effects.

Boss Tone Central
Boss Tone Central is the ultimate destination for all players that use BOSS guitar and bass gear. The initial focus of this powerful new web portal is on the ME-80, but compact stomps and other BOSS multi-effects will be included as the site grows. Right now, you have access to lots of great ME-80 content, including demo videos and free patches created by famous guitarists, touring pros, and session players.

Product Review

I'm so happy that I purchased this piece of equipment I could and have jumped for joy. To have one pedal on my gigs that does everything I need and ask for. When I'm singing and playing guitar I don't even have to think about my sound. It's so easy to program. I have not had a pedal like this in all my years of performing. I like that you don't have to be a computer genius to get what you want out of it The Boss ME-80 Guitar Multi Effects I would and do endorse. Guitarist for 7th Wonder recording artist.

This has been the best pedal I was ever used, everything boss makes plus whatever else you may ever need, and if it's not already available you can use the tone studio to make your own custom patches, and recording is great and easy

Product Review

I’ve been playing guitar – electric, acoustic, classical – since 1981. Been through stomp boxes, multi-effects units, computer-recording with effects and lots of “just playing.” The Boss ME-80 is the best piece of electronic gear I have ever owned. It has everything I could want, it’s easy to access and it was an unbelievably good deal. In one box, there’s a depth of choices that was unimaginable when I first began playing in the 80’s: excellent selections for distortion and overdrive, all of them completely controllable with actual knobs, excellent selections for chorus and flanger modification, amazing delays and even a looper and a multi-function expression pedal. There also an amp-modeling section, an EQ section (which also can be used for additional effects: chorus, delay, boost, etc) and reverb. It even has an acoustic simulator! What sets the ME-80 apart from other multi-effects units is its intuitive interface. For those of us used to pedals with knobs, multi-effects units containing “menus” are a lot of trouble; not that those units aren’t good, but the ME-80 is simply better because the controls are immediately available and simple to manipulate. There is only ONE display window that – in combination with the clearly-printed labels on the box itself – provide the user with the necessary information. The 36 factory presets are excellent, but tweaking them, customizing them and saving them in one of the 36 user-programmable presets is really cool. The best part – saving a preset is easy and intuitive. At $299, the ME-80 is an excellent deal. I own two other BOSS units for use with acoustic guitar performances (an AD-2 acoustic preamp and VE-2 vocal harmonizer/preamp) and I know how robust and gig-worthy they are; those two units cost me a total of $298 so to get the virtually infinite possibilities offered in the ME-80 for the same price? Well, it’s just a heck of great deal!
