For VG-99, VanceG and I sat with Roland Guitar Product manager Peter Swiadon at 2009 Winter NAMM for an hour going over our VGUITARFORUMS VG-99 wish list , one year after debut.In 2011 we had a similar "back stage" meeting at NAMM for the debut of GR-55, but the mix of COSM + PCM on several patches masked the PCM latency, revealed after hands on ownership experience The GP-10 was released at 2014 spring Musicmesse in Europe- then sadly was never properly demonstrated at any NAMM SHOW - extremely frustrating as it was apparent nobody at Boss USA NAMM booth wanted anything to do with it, and zero demonstration area with headphones were available. This initiated public rumors of death of GK-13 products, as VG-99 ceased production in 2012.Starting in 2016 I began my annual Winter NAMM sit down meeting with Yoshi Ikegami, and we did discuss ideas of improving communication channels with VGUITARFORUMS users and Boss R&D. including brainstorming future products including the "SERIAL GK" TRS connection. SY-1000 had a much better release at NAMM with many hands on demo stations, despite the press focus on the goofy eyeglass demonstrator playing Ghost Busters for a dozen underwhelming youtube demos. A year later at 2020 Winter NAMM VGUITARFORUMS organized a "SY-1000 summit meeting with all Boss R&D from Japan, as well as several members of VGUITARFORUMS. This was productive and important contacts with the current Japanese Boss VGuitar /Guitar Synth development team were established-since Yoshi Ikegami has retired. Roland/Boss do observe VGUITARFORUMS forums, but its a small team of engineers who create all Boss products and each is tasked with a workload that would overwhelm many. Could the 1st Youtube Boss GM-800 Q&A gone better? Of course, but at least anyone can post a question or viewpoint in the Youtube Chat, and im sure Boss product managers are currently reviewing all messages. Lets hope there are future opportunities to get our thoughts and wish list items to Boss R&D Boss GM-800 Bug Reportshttps://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=36077.0Boss GM-800 Wish Listhttps://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=36065.0
