The Boss ME-50 is a multi-effects pedal. This is similar to the Boss ME-25, but allows better control of the effects through a 3-section process with dedicated knobs for each section. This system does not, however, have a USB interface. 30 preset patches are built in, including delay, modulation, reverb, and compressor. Several COSM overdrive and distortion effects are built in for authentic sound, and a number of preset EQ settings are built in for fast tone modification. The pedal is in a metal case, enabling it to be placed on the ground and run from there without worry of damage.

  • Floor-based multi-effects processor

  • COSM overdrive/distortion effects

is the 30 preset banks the user memory? like, to save your own patches, do you have to overwrite the presets?
