How do I install it?
If you could give me some examples, I'd be interested to know.
And I'm not trying to be snarky here, I promise: Roland / Boss's unconcern for products, once they're shipped, is something that I have always found to be very disturbing.
So if you could, without too much trouble and without needing to find and paste supporting links please, give me some very basic idea, I like to know.
The Katanas got several huge updates, the main one for me was doubling the amount of patches / save states you could have.
The Katana amps have gotten updates - I'm not sure whether it's just bug fixes or more features, since I don't own one.
The GT-100 got a significant firmware update - but yes that was about it, there.
The GT-1000 has gotten several updates since release, both in terms of bug fixes and new features/effects.
I'd love to see Boss code this into a GT-1000 update, but I think there are a few reasons that won't happen
I'm not going to argue that the frequency is on par with Helix, et al - much less their support (Line6 has clearly earned a legendary reputation for service!)
I'm only pointing out that they've been listening and responding much more than they used to.
As long as I don't risk bricking the DS1, I'll give it a go tonight. Thanks!
- Purchase DS-2 upgrade module from authorized Boss dealer
- Unplug the power adaptor from the DS-1
- Gently remove the DS-1 from your pedal board
- Unpack the DS-2 upgrade module
- Connect the power adaptor to the DS-2 upgrade module
- Attach the DS-2 upgrade module to your pedal board
- List the DS-1 on Reverb
I wasn’t even thing about the 500 series! (Obvious that I don’t have one, I guess. haha!)Thank you for taking the time to post that!
(Here's what concerns me lately in this regard; it doesn't really properly belong in this thread but I'm gonna put it here anyway: the MD-500 Filter engine does not really work correctly, as per Tri Pedal Review's YouTube review, linked below, relevant section starting at 8.15. The MD-200 will, apparently, include the Filter engine. Tri Pedal Reviews is a pretty level-headed guy but, if I remember correctly, his final evaluation of the Filter mode was "kill it with fire". Will Roland fix it before they throw it into the MD-200? Or not? And if they do fix it for the MD-200, will they thereupon backport that fix into the MD-500? It is for Roland, and only for Roland, that this would even be a question at all. Note that if Roland has already fixed this bug then this whole section is mistaken and so completely irrelevant. )

Yep, they’ve got a way to go changing their ways, much less the reputation they’ve earned.
The Vguitar forum (paging @Elantric ) has been instrumental getting wish list items realized for the Gt-1000. At a glance it doesn’t look like the 500 series are addressed there. There’s an SY area but, based on what I’ve seen here, it doesn’t look like the SY has seen upgrades/updates. Bad old Boss.

I stand corrected - again. I’ll go back to reading now...
Is that really true? It looks like some of the algorithms are the same, but the tracking seems a lot better on the sy-1.If you wanna hear what sy-1 sounds like, just listen to any sy-300 video because it's the freaking same thing in a smaller format with less sounds and less tweakable lol
