    It looks like you are trying to run the SY-300 in dual mono to process a guitar and bass at the same time? Guessing from the interface this is at home?

    Your set up looks good at a glance but I'm wondering what your goal is. Also you might want to look into whether the SY-300 can run in dual mono or whether it applies stereo spreading on some of the effects.

    not running bass and guitar at the same time.

    but hooked up at the same time.

    so i can switch back and forth between bass and guitar without repatching.
    i want to have it record each signal on separate tracks in my multitrack app.

    here is the system page from the manual - i just ordered it. should get it by friday.

    then i can play around. just asking around first.

    In your case I'd probably repatch. I bet you'll find the optimal set-up for your wiring scheme will be different based on what you are trying to do, especially when you consider using the main and sub outs as wet/ dry outs or using the stereo effects of the SY-300. If memory serves you can even use the SY-300 itself as a recording interface, although I never tried that feature when I owned it.

    i will be using the Scarlett for audio duties.

    i WAS using my GT100/001 as an audio interface. nice but the Scarlett has the 8 inputs - flexible.

    from what i am hearing elsewhere, my layout is do-able.

    we shall see.

    REALLY appreciate the comments.

    side note... i was a GK/GR guy from the 1980's on (GR700). It's nice to have amp modeling (GT-100/001/Cube head) and now REAL SYNTH without
    the GK nonsense.

    i tried the GR-55... but gak... i can't handle the tracking issues any more. i dealt with that for years.

    granted, the SY-300 is old school oscillator-ville, but as a layered texture (and a sign of things to come) i am beside myself with moist glee.

    Dark Barn:

    you may, after all, be right.

    here's the flow diagram from the manual:

    looks like i may be able to use the THRU to get a dry signal to my external processors.

    if not, i will have to get an AB box of some kind.

    just BUY MORE STUFF!!!

    Guys,

    I have just bought Boss GT 100 and I want to use it for bass, the question is, how and where do I get the bass patches and load them to the gadget, I have downloaded V-studio 100 and my processor is recognizable on my computer. Please help DSC_0136.JPG

    Go to the. V Guitar forums web site.

    They have a lot if info there.

    I love my GT-100, i even bought a GT-001 for my studio.

    I used it as a front end for bass for some time. But i didn't use the guitar amp models.

    The speaker and mic models were nice.

    But when i finally introduced the Roland bass amp models from my Cube 100 head, i realised what i had been missing.

    The GT-100 is great for bass as an effects processor and audio interface.

    It KILLS for guitar with the guitar amp models.

    Take from my many years of dickin' with this stuff, for bass, the Roland COSM bass amp modeling is nutzo good.

    Also get the Boss Tone Studio app for graphical editing of the GT-100.

    Just my pennies.

    I think the bass GT products have the COSM amp models for bass.

    GT6B for example.

    Would be cool if Boss had a Bass COSM pedal.

    They might. Not sure.

    Nice, I have the studio, I checked the website launching it from the studio but it shows me more of guitar patches. There's only one by Tamas Barabus and I can only see it from Windows Explorer launch, from the studio it doesn't appear.

    The GT6B is discontinued.

    You can get one for under $200. Lots for sale

    Some people like the Zoom unit. Not my pref, though.

    NAMM 2016 should be very interesting at the Roland booth.

    By the way i just hooked up the Boss SY-300 with direct out to my GT-100 and Cube 100 COSM bass head.

    Good lord.

    Thus set up is what i have been hunting for for years.

    With noiseless and hum cancelling pickups on all my guitars and basses and with active preamps in my basses, insane clean tone.

    To clarify...

    When i say insane clean tone, i mean no noise. Pristine!

    I can get some good gritty sounds from this stuff.

    Tonal heaven.

    Great, so when you say I can get one for under $200, ARE YOU REFERRING TO BASS EFFECTS OR?

    I am talking about the GT6B.

    I did a quick search and a few popped up.

    Ok, do I need to buy any if GT 100 is multi and can download bass effects which are used for GT 10B and GT 6B?
