I can't for the life of me understand why you would want the looper volume to be lower than the normal output of the input guitar that made it. The setting on the VIP acoustic is usually set so overdubs are reduced however so it doesn't all become a mess.

Hi, was hoping some one could please help.

I can't seem to get my Ve-8 to action my FS-6 external footswitch correctly.

Only switch B works, I have them set as per the manual; Middle plug, polarity left, momentary.

I have found the settings within the VE-8 and can adjust B to stop the loop.

I bought the FS-6 as I'd like to have loop selector (vocal/guitar) on one and stop loop on the other.

Thanks, Travis

Smile Question on external foot switch

It says in the manual that you can connect a Boss FS-5U, but it doesnít specifically mention the 5L (latch style). Anyone know if it is okay to use the 5L? If so, do you have to mod the VE-8 in any way?

Thanks in advance!

An older thread, but I will recap on my enjoyment of the Boss - I had the TC PA and when the Boss came out, I headed to an electro type shop that stocked them, bought it, had it working moments after it was home it is so easy with the knobs to do the settings.

I donít alter much except levels - all I really wanted was a few treatments like you do when recording.....small splash of reverb and delay on the vocals and guitar. I could superglue most settings I use. But I run it direct by the XLRs to a mixer and via usb to Garageband on my iMac and I have been very, very pleased with the clear sound. (I donít use the resonance feature - I usually use a dual source guitar with internal mic and it works through the Boss beautifully.)

Now, a couple of strange foibles I have come across with my unit. I have the delay on the guitar on Ďroomí and it is suppose to have the same settings as last time you played it, but every time I turn it on, the button needs to be touched once to make sure it is delay or I get chorus! You can save your settings to a bank, but again, when clicking through saved ones....the delay alters at random!

Donít care though - I just keep an eye/ear on it and the sound is just fabulous. Great idea, Mr Boss whoever you are! Wish I had the gadget years ago!

I had a VE8 before switching to the TC Play Acoustic ..

Positives - I liked the physical knobs for adjustment. Separate knobs control for mic and guitar. Also for the volume of the loop (mic and guitar separated) ...Liked the guitar effects a lot. Resonance was excellent. There's a EQ (hidden). I thought the guitar side sounded slightly better and more responsive than the PA. Also really liked the versatility of the multi ins and outs on rear panel.

Cons - vocal effects had a more digital sound. Not nearly as natural sounding as the PA. Looper was lame.. needing the the extra footswitch to work easier .. but even with the FS it was clunky too.

I'm thinking of getting the Boss AD2 just for the Resonance feature.
