    I’ve been very happy with my SY-300 due to its flexibility and phenomenal tracking (no synth or hex system beats it for fast playing and polyphony without glitches). But the size of it is a pita, which is why I’ve been intrigued by the C-4...and now this.

    I see what you’re saying but I think the SY-1 is being marketed at guitars like myself..... who... no matter what ... will never ever plug ANY pedal into a PC for said update. Don’t own a PC or laptop actually.

    I use CPUs like the kids these days. Just tablets and phones. But they are basically just glorified media browsers with the ability to record and edit video.

    For someone like me who would never update the software anyway and won’t even use the sound editing options etc. The pedal format makes perfect sense.

    There's already a rc-202 and this is visually closest to the rc-1.

    Which is PERFECT

    The SY-300 is basically a full multi FX unit built around synth sounds. I have it but it's not in my board because it's a pain to haul such a massive thing, with such a deep, cumbersome UI when all I want is a button that I can hit for instant Pat Metheny.

    Looks like the SY-1 is perfect for my needs.

    They are getting there with the Waza pedals and pedals like the JB-2 Angry Driver.

    I'm grateful they got back into analog dirt pedals because to put it in perspective the last analog dirt pedal Boss released before the Waza pedals in 2014 was the MD-2 Mega Distortion in 2001 to cash in on Nu-Metal :D

    I get it, it'll be perfect for some people because it's smaller and price is smaller, but they wasted almost 5 yrs and didn't do nothing new or update anything [boss sy-300 is great but it needs some tweaks]. That's what gets me. They didn't listen to their fans on the sy-300 and just blew us off. They didn't listen really to the market that is evolving because they released the same thing in a smaller format etc... Ugh whatever, I'll just move along and wait for something that is actually NEW. :p

    Both pedals are going to be on my radar now.

    I doubt the looper will be anywhere close to a Chase Bliss MOOD but I'll watch out for more demos at least.

    From the demos it sounds like the SY-1 is less glitchy than the SY-300 when playing chords

    interesting...the synthesizer pedal looks right up my alley!!!!!!

    I really wish Boss would put some control options on their loopers: like the ability to adjust the pitch/time of a loop, like in the old EH 16 DDL!

    That's a CR-76.

    Hall & Oates used a CR-78

    Yep.

    I assumed a TRIO+ competitor would come out in 2017... And by TC Electronic. ;)

    Took a lot longer than I thought.

    It doesn't have the "magic" pitch/beat detection auto-track creation, so maybe this is more of a Beat Buddy competitor...

    Agreed. That's what I noticed when I started reading the manual. So I guess the Trio+ will continue without 'proper' competition. The "magic" pitch/beat detection auto-track creation continues to be unique.

    Hasn't it been like 5 years since the original Trio was released? Kind of surprising that nobody else decided to try out something like this. It's a great design concept! Glad it makes my Trio that much more special, but it's interesting that nobody else has the guts to try it out ;)
