I found this video by chance, I did not even know that it had launched a BOSS pedal triggered by GK, for those who enjoy working with wave forms and is quite interesting, and BOSS did not no a promotional video about ...

BOSS WP-20GK (wave processor)

Seems like his hands spend more time on knobs and buttons than on the guitar. Looks like to much work for what he's getting sound wise. I suppose if they made it, it has a purpose.

Not necessarily so, - since they swiftly discontinued these pedals over 10 years ago.

Regarding the wp20g001 demo, that did not appear to me to be the case; he was simply changing some settings to show what sounds are available and in that respect scarcely seemed to be any different from any of hundreds of demo videos I've watched.

I did not find the first demo all that helpful as a specifically WP-20g-oriented demo; it was more as though the guy was demonstrating his other pedals.

What I found most interesting was that the Square and Saw sounds seemed to have a very hexaphonic feeling to them.

You are way better off buying a used VG-88 than that.
It was a VERY stripped down version of the basic VG-88.
Nothing different.


In theory it was a cool idea that they produced GK format stompboxes.

In practice, the sounds that came out seemed best for a tribute band for eight bit videogame music - really primitive although there was one hex distortion sound that might have been useful.

I'm thinking the 88/99 is a much better deal all the way around.

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


I paid $90 for my WP-20g a few years ago, around the same time as VG-88's were going for around $400. I am not sure what VG-88's are going for now, but of the two I have, the cheaper one was about $250.

$90 is almost in impulse purchase, really. Even if I never use if for anything at all, it's not as though I have wasted a large sum of money.


Hi all. Any WP-20G owners here able to confirm if the poly ring mod mode can be set to intelligent mode using the knob, or if intelligent mode simply isn't available?
