    Boss Gt-1 live?

    Get a Boss FS-7 dual footswitch to go with it, as the existing GT-1 footswitches are a bit limited when 2 of them are used to change patch.

    edit: M1 Macs working. Was: Do you think BOSS is even working on Mac M1 support?

    Here is the last Roland Corporation financial report before they delisted from the stock exchange https://www.roland.com/RolandComSite/media/global/release/pdf/2014/20140807.pdf Which includes all other ventures (printer, computer peripherals, musical, others) 3 months sales of 21 Billion Yen...

    edit: M1 Macs working. Was: Do you think BOSS is even working on Mac M1 support?

    Yes, so long as the USB-Midi device is supported by Mac M1, and is a decent quality type (Roland UM-One mk2 fits both requirements).

    Meanwhile you can use a compatible USB-Midi adapter into the GT-1000 midi ports. Re-compiling source for the M1 is not that easy, especially if using a 3rd party framework which needs to update its libraries first.

    edit: M1 Macs working. Was: Do you think BOSS is even working on Mac M1 support?

    For the M1, being a totally different hardware architecture from the intel chip, requires new hardware drivers rewritten from the ground up. I guess if history repeats, look back when Mac OS moved from OSx9 to OSx10, and the hardware changed from PPC to intel, how long did it take Roland/Boss to...

    Helix 3.1?

    Bluetooth is on par with Dialup internet, its basically wireless RS232 serial port. Wifi with secure encryption would be good. But I am skeptical about any wireless connection to your gear for live gig use. Imagine your tones suddenly changing during a gig because someone in the audience...

    Boss VE-500 Vocal Performer Pedal vs. TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play Vocal Effects and Harmony Pedal

    All 99 User patches are accessible by midi PC. There is a VE-500 facebook page with discussion on that.

    Boss VE-500

    Just from looking at the VE-500 specs, the effects and reverb should have more depth as it uses the same new 32 bit converters and processing as the GT-1000, where the VE-20 is rather old and based on the 24bit chip like the GT-100.

    Can someone help me understand the Pocket Gt pricetag?

    I think ditching the "COSM" brand (although it never bothered me, its just a name) and using "A.I.R.D" and "Tube Logic" is enough to convince some that this is something else/new.

    Can someone help me understand the Pocket Gt pricetag?

    I guess some of the stuff is aimed at markets that don't exist within this site. I assume these wacky devices are selling well in certain 'other' markets.
