    Hi Dudes,

    Anyone here use a Boss Sl-20?

    I am curious to see if any other bassists use this.

    I have one.
    I use it mostly with synths but have used it on bass a fair few times.
    It doesn't need to always be used as a hard gate/choppy effect.
    It is possible to use in more subtle ways also.
    Midi is helpful if you use it.
    I think it works wonders when used in conjunction with lots of other modulation and delay pedals.
    On it's own it can be a bit gimmicky.
    It does some crazy bonkers things in a feedback loop!!!
  3. crazy bonkers? Sounds like we need sound clips. :)

    I wanna bump this. I'm curious too and quite frankly, the boss demo video on bass is a joke.
  5. I had one for a little while. It was pretty fun, and the looper was good times. It'll make these neat percussive sounds on some settings. I got rid of it because I couldn't figure out any live application, and without midi, synching it up to things was a pain.

    If you're curious, one of the songs on my myspace page ("Eddy's in the Space-Time Continuum") features the slicer prominently on the bass. You can hear it soloed in the beginning. http://www.myspace.com/jumbotronic
