Here is the last Roland Corporation financial report before they delisted from the stock exchange
Which includes all other ventures (printer, computer peripherals, musical, others)
3 months sales of 21 Billion Yen...
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.
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...
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...
If people are still buying he ME-80 in high numbers, then why redesign the wheel or fix it if it ain't broke.
All these products are basically off shoots of the GT-100 from 2012.
The GT-100, then...
For EXP pedal switch, you can go 1 step further and attach a thin rubber block under the Toe (and/or heal) end of the EXP pedal, so that the last 1% of travel requires the rubber block to be compressed.
Then set up an Assign to Toggle on the Wah effect using the EXP pedal as the Source and the...
Don't expect any updates, despite there "being plenty of room for updates" does not mean any will actually happen.
If you want to record direct, then Line Out will do, the Stereo expand option makes no difference in this case.
You could also use the FX send, but depending on where it is placed...
My current setup is a Boss SY-1000 and a Roland GR-55 (modified with a send/return loop to take a Tech21 Vt-Bass pedal in the loop),
All my basses have a GK-3B external pickup or a GK-KIT-3B internal pickup kit, (also an array of guitars with GK-3 pickups too)
the 13 pin cable runs into a DIY 13...
The FTP (Fishman Triple Play) can not be used with bass.
I use the GK-3B pickup on bass with both the Roland GR-55 and Boss SY-1000, and have also used the midi out into a Roland Fantom XR synth rack module.
On bass, pitch to midi is not that great for latency, the built in synths of the GR-55...
Fizzy and noisy sounds are quite often a result of the GT-1000Core (or other devices with a guitar plugged in) may not be grounded.
I resolved an issue where someone had these issues and the end solution was to plug the GT into a grounded device,
such as a guitar amp which is plugged into the...
