Is the Hotone pedal on your board a Wah or expression for effects?
Both, lol. It's a wah/volume/expression pedal. I'll be using it as expression pedal once my TRS Patch cable arrives in the post!
Is there any noticeable lag in the unit when switching between presets?
Setup complete! Smallest 4CM multi effects I've ever had.
How is this pedal much different or better than something like the gt-100. Besides its a little cheaper. But what can it do that the gt100 cannot?
That's quite a large question.
This is primarily a loop controller first. It's not the first that Boss have created, they have larger ones for 5 and 8 loops.
This is primarily for people who may want to control three seperate loops.
The major selling point for me was that it has 112 build in effects from the existing GT range. FX1 slot, FX2 slot, Delay, Reverb, Mod plus the three loops, tuner, noise gate, expression pedal for volume/wah/pitch/effects parameters.
I'm using it as a smaller mini multi effects as the Boss GT range of effects are strong and by using this, I replaced my existing pedalboard and added much more functionality.
So it really had two purposes. It allowed you to control existing pedals via the loops and/or minimise the rest of your pedalboard through the use of it's in built effects range, which themselves are very good.
It's not a GT-100 replacement, as it doesn't do amp modelling or the sort. It's a looper with in built effects.
I just received mine Friday and I am in love. It is exactly what I needed. I no longer have to dance around my pedalboard to go from a dry heavy sound to a clean with chorus and reverb. One click, instant change with no lag whatsoever.
Necrobump, just wanted to see what Ross is thinking about the MS-3, coming up to the 2 month mark. Getting an itchy trigger finger for one!
Bit late to the party. This thing is so advanced that it can trigger and control everything in Tha House.
A BOSS indeed!
