Powered by advanced BOSS technology, the BOSS MD-500 gives you an ultra-versatile modulation effects pedal. Offering nearly any type of modulation you could want as a musician, then more. Including 28 different algorithms with intensive programming parameters; giving you a nearly limitless sound palette to create with. Not to mention the class-defying 32 bit AD/DA, 32-bit floating-point processing, and 96 kHz sampling rate. So you’ll enjoy pristine sound quality beyond even the very best studio hardware.
Onboard the MD-500 is a host of new effects designed with the latest in BOSS technology. As well as authentic sonic recreations of vintage classics such as the CE-1 Chorus Ensemble, Roland Dimension D, 70s’ script phaser, 80s’ tri-chorus, and numerous others.While maintaining the ability to use two patches at once with A/B Simul mode. Overall, the MD-500 is likely to cover all your mod needs using one convenient pedal. Plus, by inserting drive pedals in the MD-500’s flexible external loop, you can easily place mode effects before, after, or around your loop.
Twelve Modes and 28 Mod Effect Types
Including 12 modes with 28 different mod effect algorithms, all developed specifically for the MD-500. Featuring all the go-to standards including chorus, vibrato, flanger, phaser, tremolo, rotary, classic vibe, and ring mod. While auto wah and touch wah effects are on hand too, as well as BOSS originals such as Slicer and Overtone. If you’re a fan of Slicer, you’ll love the ability to program custom patterns. While the MD-500’s spot-on recreation of the Roland Dimension D rack effects mean you can add amazing depth and width.
Using BOSS’s advanced new Prime algorithms, all effects on the MD-500 have been refreshed. Using ultra-fast, high-powered DSP; reimagining the essential effects for enhanced expression, extended range, and maximum transparency. While an array of adjustable parameters mean you’ve got a range of sound-shaping potential at your fingers. There’s even a range of all-new parameters such as the Bell and Sweetness settings.
Featuring 32-bit/96 kHz AD/DA, the MD-500 exceeds all the industry standards when it comes to pedal-based effects. All internal processing is a 32-bit floating-point running at 96 kHz sampling rate. Offering pristine sonic quality going beyond the highest-level digital processor used in top pro studios. While selectable true-bypass and buffered-bypass operation means you can choose the best settings to suit the needs of any pedalboard setup.
