HOT GEAR Boss MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher Boss has released the MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher, which is a new- concept pedalboard solution that combines a multi-effects engine and multi-pedal switcher in one small, dedicated unit. The MS-3 is capable of running six internal pedal effects at once while integrating three external pedals. It also offers deep rig control capabilities, allowing users to switch amp channels, adjust effects in real time, work with MIDI devices, and more. With the MS-3, it is meant to be easier to create a portable board or fly rig without the compromises associated with traditional loop switch- ers and all-in-one multi-effects units. The MS-3’s durable footswitches provide easy command of the entire system. In Memory mode, the footswitches allow the user to select patches and banks. Changing to Manual mode lets them switch loops and effects on/off and control multiple effects parameters for real-time expression. The Manual mode assignments can be stored in patches, letting users create custom setups for different songs and styles. For more information, contact Roland Canada: 604-270-6626, www.roland.ca.
