I for one do not give a hoot about the childish rants that are going on in this thread. Frankly, it is getting stale. Nobody really cares if one member works for Boss, or other useless topics..... let the hardware do the talking. As I await the arrival of my pre-ordered GT-1000 Unit, I am thankful for those of you who have posted interesting, thought provoking comments and insight on what this unit can offer. I especially await Glen's next GT-1000 video, and how he plans to use the programmable footswitches, assigns and signal chains, as he is a master at tweaking GT units.
