    Its on my list for my birthday cause i know it has Distortion, chorus,delay, reverb,auto slap..

    so i was just wondering.. if you cant name em all can you tell me how many are fetured on it and whats your favorite.. sorry if this sounds lame..
    thanks for the help though
  2. I'm guessing even Boss doesn't know theirselves.

    You, my friend, have fallen victim to the "don't-supply-any-info-whatsoever-to-our-valued-customers" policy of Roland/Boss.

    I've done extensive searches (and I mean extensive) for info on the Boss VF-1, and didn't find anything. It simply isn't there. Boss doesn't supply it. You can, however buy the manual for lotsa dollars.

    Go to the music store, and try one out.

    BTW. I don't think there are effects that AREN'T in the GT-6B

    thnaks man
    We have a mars music here and they dont have it..
    like no stores in the memphis area have it i think.. ill check it with andy(iplaybass) cause he lives up the road from me.. but i dunno what im gonna do..
    Ive heard a few sound samples of a few effects from a guy i used to know.. he blocked me the other day so i cant talk to him.. (the problem with being a 17 year old immature kid).
    hmm.. i wonder if i emailed boss.. and asked them if it came with an adapter.. i wonder if they woudl say "buy and youll find out"... :eek:

    Multiple Effects Processor for Bass Guitar

    The GT-6B Bass Effects Processor is BOSS’ first new bass multi-effects processor in over five years. This fully professional floor-based unit offers new COSM® Bass Amp Modeling with new modeled compression, plus other “must-have” effects like COSM overdrive/distortion, COSM wah and reverb/delay. There’s also a true analog bypass, plus XLR and digital outputs for recording applications—making the GT-6B the leader in high-quality multi-effects for bass.

    Features :

    * Professional bass multi-effects processor with COSM technology
    * True analog bypass and 24-bit converters for uncompromised sound quality
    * COSM Bass Amp Modeling recreates the tone of many of the greatest bass amps and speaker cabinets in history
    * New COSM Compression effect modeled after 4 well-known compressors
    * Ultra-intuitive interface with analog-style knobs; built-in expression and control pedals
    * Versatile effects including “Auto Slap” and sound-on-sound looping
    * BOSS’ best synth bass sounds with incredible tracking
    * Balanced XLR output and coaxial digital output for recording

    Unrivaled Sound Quality

    When designing the GT-6B, BOSS’ primary focus was quality—quality you can hear in every component from its 24-bit converters to its true analog bypass, allowing bass players to switch to the pure tone of their bass guitar when desired. A balanced XLR output and coaxial digital output ensure the highest sound quality when recording, giving the GT-6B a decisive advantage over other bass multi-effects.

    COSM Modeling for Bass

    Thanks to proprietary COSM technology, the GT-6B can model the sound of six classic bass amps including “Concert 810,” “Session,” “T.E.” “Bass 360,” “B Man,” and “Flip Top.” But amps are only half the story, so the GT-6B also includes several speaker cabinet models like 8 x 10, 4 x 10, 2 x 15 and others. Now you can get great tone direct!

    Killer Effects with COSM

    The GT-6B features BOSS’ finest “bread-and-butter” effects—including chorus, reverb, delay, flanger and more—all tuned for bass guitar. And with COSM Overdrive/Distortion Modeling and Wah Modeling, bass players can get some of their favorite tones and effects without using amps or noisy stompboxes. The GT-6B also features new COSM Compression, which offers models of several well-known compressors. With all of these amazing COSM effects, bassists can literally just plug in and play.

    Auto Slap, Looping and More

    New performance effects include an Auto Slap feature, which creates automatic slap patterns using Preset or User templates, plus sound-on-sound looping for creating loops “on the fly”—even fat synth bass sounds with killer tracking. There’s nothing else like it!

    i feel like an ass now :rolleyes:

    I called to ask about the looping function. It's 3-6 seconds, depending on quality. If you call 323-890-3700 ext.2498 and have a couple of questions in mind, they seem really friendly and willing to help out.
