Hi everyone,

I know the Boss SY-1000 is totally different compared to the Roland GR-55 but was just curious to see if anyone have tried to recreate the GR55 patches on the SY-1000...



Hurdle #1

On SY-1000 There's no PCM ROM samples of real instruments , as found on GR-55


Apart from the PCM synth issue, the SY-1000 also has a different amp/effect architecture, so it would be difficult to convert amp sims and effects.
The only similarity is the GR-300 synth, and modeled instruments.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.


Hello all,
Yes, SY-1000 is different architekture witout PCM generators, but I still trying set sound as GR55 patch GR300 Triplet.
Have somebody idea as create it? GR300, synth pad (dynamics synth), triple delay?

sound is here:

Thank you.


Sounds very much like the GR-300 model in the VG-99 using the Slicer algorithm. 
My music projects online at

GK Devices:  Roland VG-99, Boss GP-10, Boss SY-1000.


I think this should be easy for SY-1000

I think the volume pulse could be done with a slicer, sqr tremolo, or sequenced.

Off hand, I'd mix a couple of DYN synth instruments with a GR-300 instrument.
