Quote from: yunoa on July 22, 2023, 07:04:31 PMi feel like i know what the answer is gonna be, but i was wondering if there's an sy-like synth engine inside the gm-800, in addition to the 4-part gm-like engine it is said to have. if not, do you guys think boss will release another guitar synth with an sy-like engine and gk-5 compatibility?
Quote from: gumtownadmin on July 22, 2023, 07:30:29 PMIf you watch Alex Hutchens third and more personal video on the GM-800, in the comments section, he does elude to the BM-800 as the first device in a new series of GK serial products.
Quote from: yunoa on July 23, 2023, 08:58:19 AMi'm assuming you mean alex hutchings? i checked his channel and there doesn't seem to be three videos...? there's only two, and i didn't see anything in the comments about a bm-800. i must be missing something...
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on July 23, 2023, 09:15:10 AMHe did 3 videos, however 2 is only on his channel, the other one is the launch video he did for BOSS. As for BM-800, i think gumtown made a typo.
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on July 22, 2023, 07:16:01 PMThe sy-1000 is already compatible with gk-5 so I doubt there's a need for another SY synth remake, just get the right converter to use it.https://www.boss.info/us/products/gkc-da/https://www.boss.info/us/products/gkc-ad/
Quote from: gumtownadmin on July 22, 2023, 07:30:29 PMOne thing is for sure, GK-13 now sits along with the GK-24 pin products (in the eyes of Boss).
Quote from: Elantric on July 23, 2023, 01:28:51 PMBut its true future products will grow with more gear focused on the " SERIAL GK" interface.
Quote from: yunoa on July 23, 2023, 07:18:35 PMi see. perhaps that means they'll also come out with a serial gk version of the us-20! i have a theory that the model name would be the us-20s, or the sus-20....
Quote from: gumtown on July 23, 2023, 07:50:12 PMSo much we don't know about this format yet.
Quote from: gumtown on July 23, 2023, 07:50:12 PMBut then, a smart GK switch box would tell the connected units (GM-800 and newer) which GK-Set setting associated with the guitar to change to.
Quote from: gumtown on July 23, 2023, 07:50:12 PMI can't see why a simple TRS (stereo jack) A/B switch box wouldn't work.
Quote from: VegasGuitar on July 24, 2023, 07:09:32 AMBecause this TRS is AES/EBU digital. A really good A/B might not mess with the digital signal, and I can't remember seeing a ¼" AES/EBU A/B switcher, most use optical or XLR and are pricey.
Quote from: Elantric on July 24, 2023, 07:22:37 AMthe AD2428 IC will enable the internal power rails for the FPGA and Opamps on GK-5, takes about 6 seconds
Quote from: philjynx on July 24, 2023, 08:05:17 AMThere was a time when there were 1/4" 4 pole jacks used in telephone exchanges, pity Roland/Boss didn't opt for something like that, could have carried the audio pickups down that one extra line... There are 3.5mm (1/8") ones, but they're too flimsy for guitar cables. And the opportunity has expired....
Quote from: cags12 on July 24, 2023, 08:08:36 AMThis would not have worked. mixing analog and digital signals on the same patch cable introduces significant noise into the analog audio signal...
Quote from: philjynx on July 24, 2023, 08:28:33 AMNot my experience, I used to use 10 metre long 25 core on my GK guitar, it carried 8 audio signals out of the guitar and at least two switch mode supplies to the guitar (noise generators). All I ever heard out of the amp was music. Roland digital is twisted pair, so far less likely to induce noise than the cable I used.
Quote from: cags12 on July 24, 2023, 11:14:12 AMThey could just send a 7th digital signal and that's it.
