The free Boss Tone Studio software unlocks even more tonal possibilities, providing a cool graphical interface for tweaking and organizing sounds on your computer, plus a web connection to Boss Tone Central for direct access to free gig-ready patches created by top pro guitarists and much more.

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.

What I love about this board is it operates as a analog leader board. The individual channels with analog knobs are perfect for dialing in your own sound!

I Love this Thing!
What is your opinion of this product?
Compact, tight, and rugged, with a very simple, intuitive user interface and excellent user manual. It is refreshing to be able to simply plug in, press a couple buttons or a single pedal, and jam all night. Need to change settings, no problem; you can change via pedal without losing a beat! And, the pedals are made so that you can't accidentally "miss" one with your foot. The tonal quality and variety of tones (and controllable parameters) can't be beat. Using headphones as an output, or outputting to an amp or the input of a recording board or AWS is easy and simple, and without any latency or loss of signal quality. Another big plus is that it runs on batteries (for gigging portability) OR an AC adapter (sold separately). I am able to get almost 7 hours of use on new batteries. The only drawback (for me) was that the AC adapter and carrying case are sold separately. But, regardless of that, I still can't recommend the Boss ME-80 enough--it is awesome!

Not as great as i hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
Im sure with all the knobs on this thing you can make about any sound you want, but for an inexperienced person. You might want to read the manual several times or go to school before trying to use this thing.

What is your opinion of this product?
This product is awesome, with all the variety of effects you can play with and simplicity on programming it, I cant complain at all. Also the battery operated feature is cool, I love portability, you wont have to find an outlet, or carry heavy batteries if your just doin short gigs. Even better of they would come up with rechargeable one. But for now i enjoy my Boss ME80 pedal board.
