Great fun- but lack of presets could be an issue.
drdolittle, 13.05.2020
This is an absolute joy to play around with and definitely opens up new creative avenues!

Pros: Huge range of sounds and the sensitivity, responsiveness and lack of latency are amazing.

Cons: There are no presets and with internal and external dials for each control that adds to a lot of fiddling around.
Also YOU REALLY NEED AN EXPRESSION PEDAL to make the best use of the SY-1. (It works well with my moog pedal).

I briefly contemplated 3 stars for these last issues- but it would not have been a fair score as this unit really is incredible in how it can completely transform your sound in real time! Would definitely recommend.

Excellent pedal
EnuffZNuff, 10.03.2020
Delivered quickly - great price. The pedal is excellent, I've a number of synth pedals - and this one really has some interesting sounds in it. It tracks really well, it doesn't appear to glitch at all. It always puts a smile on my face! I showed it to my nephew, and he was completely hooked! I didn't see him for the afternoon :-) Another excellent pedal from Boss, and an simple an easy purchase from Thomann
