    Hi all, thought I'd put some patch settings up here for the fairly new Boss GT-1B.

    Dakota Intro 3 Effects
    FX2 Flanger
    Rate: 15 Depth: 70 Res 88 Man 71 Low cut: flat E.Level 80 D.Level 0

    Delay
    Time: 400ms. FB: 50. E.Level 52. High Cut: 600hz

    Reverb
    Type: Plate. Time: 1.6s. E.Level 50 Low Cut: 160htz High Cut. 4Khtz


    Duff Chorus 1 Effect
    Chorus
    Rate:20. Depth:75. E.level:100. Mode: Mono Low Cut: Flat. High Cut: Flat

    Right, they probably ain't amazing settings but I'm totally happy for anyone's suggestions. I just want to get the ball rolling.

    Regards

    Ian

     
  2. I have to be honest, it's easier to get blood out a stone, to pass a bassman through the eye of a needle and get the truth out of a politician than it is to get any conversation going here about the Boss GT-1B, but, when I get mine (finally), I'll be sure to participate in this thread :)

    Does anyone have a list of the user presets (u1-99) vs the Preset Patches (P1-P99)? The Patches are listed in the manual but there's no list of U 1-U99 presets which can be modified. Thanks!

    The user patches and preset patches are the same. The preset patches can't be altered but the user ones can.

    There is a separate parameters PDF download on the boss website which gives more info on the patches.

    Hope this helps

    Press the toe down to engage the wah. (Press it hard. Like, put all your weight on it.)

    Is it only working as a volume or not working as anything?

  8. With the GT 1 for guitar I worked out a way to calibrate it so it was right for me:

    I edited the calibration settings, and 0 was with it right back, 100 was ALMOST fully forward but I used a thick pick or credit card to get a small gap, so that it has a minor threshold, and then I played with the sensitivity, trial and error. I have tonchange it for different surfaces to make it easy to turn on wah but not so easy that it engages every time I use the volume pedal. Somewhere between 12-16 should do it.

    In the settings you can control what the pedal does, you may need to make sure that the wah has been assigned to it.

    Yes I have done that but all I had to do was to step hard on the pedal to get the wah going as advised by chubbyjerk above..thx to all it was simple.

    I asked this question before in another Zoom thread mistakenly. So I will ask here as well. Can the GT1b have the three buttons assigned as a stomp box for each where I can assign 3 patches per pedal based on categories such 3 clean tones, 3 overdrives, 3 modulation. If not then I was thinking of copying a clean tone say every other patch and then adjacent put a modulation, overdrive, etc, basically pairing patches so I can scroll between the two effects. ..clean to effect. Normally I do not have patience for multi boxes but I want to try this one.

    The pedal can't do what you first describe (act as 3 different pedals) as there is only one display to tell you what effect/patch is being used. It would be quite confusing like that.

    However, you can use the Ctrl switch (the right switch) to turn certain effects on/off within a patch. You could also create different patches and switch between them.
    Hope this helps.

    I think I'll create the patches and go place a clean patch in between each patch. Thx!

    Hi All,

    After playing around for a bit I have made some improvements to my Dakota patch

    Dakota Intro (2 Effects)
    FX2 Flanger
    Rate: 25 Depth: 50 Res 80 Man 75 Low cut: 110Hz E.Level 50 D.Level 0

    OD/DS
    Type: AB- Dist Drive: 25 E.Level: 18
    Tone: 0 Bottom: 0 D.Level: 0

    This seemed to sound better in a live situation. I assigned the flanger to CTL1 and turned it off during main part if the song.

    Just want to make sure I get updates on this thread. New owner of GT-1B. It's my first multi-effect pedal so I'm swimming in deep water at the moment.

    Its a great pedal, I love it so far and my sound has improved. I think the on board patches are OK for inspiration but they are all different levels etc. I'll make my own patches I think. Its so flexible and I don't know the half of it.

    The up, down, ctl, pedal and pedal switch (when you press it hard) can all be assigned different effects so it's like having five stomp boxes. It does mean you can't use up/down to toggle through the patches but can do this with the left dial. There are only two FX banks so there is a limit to what you can assign to each of the above stomp switches.

    Sounds interesting and will have to dig into this. Thx!
     
  20. It's handy to get an fs7 to have a few more footswitches.
