Boss gt 100 HELP PLEASE!!!!
« on: February 25, 2015, 07:59:57 PM »
Hey everyone I just purchased the gt 100 ver 2 and I've watched tonnes of videos and tutorials but I can't seem to get the awesome tones from it that everyone else is getting.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it's extremely frustrating :(
Even the tones I get from boss tone central don't sound the same as they do in the videos or audio clips.
I have it set up with my traynor combo YGL2 going from output L and R going into the back of the amp In and out.
Should I have it set up another way?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm dying to get the same lovely sounds everyone else seems to be getting.
Thanks in advance

Start with headphones direct to GT-100 , ( I trust Audio Technica ATH-M50X

 you should be hearing similar sound as the demo patches / sounds at Boss Tone Studio for GT-100.

And remember the GT-100 with latest "Version 2.0" Firmware sounds great straight to the PA

The "Amp in" and "Amp Out" on the Traynor is equivalent to an effects loop, having one output of the GT-100 going to the Amp Out will do nothing on the amp, and on the GT-100, will cut out half of your stereo/panned sounds.
Try the headphones first, but note that the GT-100 has "Output Select" settings to shape the tone to the application used.

Output select set to 'Line Phones" for headphones or to a flat response system (i.e. stereo or PA system)
This applies speaker cabinet simulation to the tone.

"Combo" or "Stack" for plugging into the front input of the amp (using the amp's preamp to colour the tone). Keep the GT-100 preamps switched 'off' - effects only.

"Combo Return" or "Stack Return" for using only the power amp section and a guitar speaker/cabinet.
You will be wanting to use the GT-100 preamps but switch 'off' the speaker cab part.

Plug into the Traynor "amp in" with just the GT-100 L/Mono output.

Another setup option to try further down the track is Four cable method (4CM), allowing you to switch between the GT-100 preamps and the Traynor one (using the GT-100 S/R Loop).

PLEASE READ THE "README.html" file that is included with the USB driver download
( 90% of ALL problems with Roland/Boss computer connectivity via USB occurs from folks who disregard following the supplied "README instructions contained inside the zip / rar/ tgz files .
