Question for GT-8 users: Number pedal triggers solo switch?
« on: January 31, 2017, 10:34:19 AM »
Hello, i just picked up a GT-8 (for 125 Canadian!)..and altho im experienced in programming (VG-99, VG-88, etc), im at a loss to find a way of assigning the number pedal function...when i change patches, and say, hit Bank 1: pedal 1, and then hit THE SAME #1 pedal again, it activates the "solo" switch in the amp.. my question is, "Is this the only function that hitting the number pedal a 2nd time will activate?"... or is it assignable?... thanx for any help i get, ive gone over the manual 7 times, and cant seem to find any answers...Thanx, everyone!

It's on page 74 of the manual, under "Switching Settings With the Number Pedal"

Smile why dont people like the boss GT-8?
I mean this thing can do it all. it switches amp channels for you, you can insert an effects loop with all your regular pedals, modded pedals, etc. and you can put your regular pedals anywhere in the effects chain.

so you can get tons of variations and send them to the clean or the dirty channel. pretty nuts.

for instance in one pedal stomp, you can access the clean channel on your amp with reverb, flanger, and chorus.

then in one additional stomp you can toggle to your dirty channel on your amp along with your favorite stomp pedals (in the effects loop through the boss). you could turn on the noisegate.

then in an additional stomp you could get just the distortion of the amp channel itself and raise the amp volume.

one more stomp and you could access the clean channel of your amp with sitar, etc

so i think it would be good for space rock, versatility, etc as long as you have a 2 channel amp.
