I just wanted to give you low expectations so you'd be happy! It does sound really good through the headphones. It shouldn't take you long to get the hang of it... once you get the idea of how the menu system works, its pretty intuitive! Have fun!

For me the size was one of the great things about it. When traveling I stick it in a small camera bag that I have and it goes in the back seat. Or when flying it goes in the overhead really easily. Before I thought about the camera bag I just carried it on. I had some interesting conversations with flight attendants or other people in the gate area explaining what it is!

Yeh, the book is fat because of all the different languages.

thanks maton,i already love this and i havent even scratched the surface yet,just been playin with there presets,which i thing is cool.i havent tried any amp models or effects yet.but i can tell it was a long night of jamming.the one thing i notice is when i stop playin theres and the volume is still on i hear a unwanted annoying scratchy sound,now it goes away when i turn the volume down.have you had that problem...and i did replace cabels and it still did it.you dont hear it while playin only when you stop...ty

i got to do alittle more reading ,it says to make sure volume is off when turning the unit on or off.since doing so it seems better now.i get alittle hum from speakers which isnt tthat bad at all.but throw the headphones on and ur in a new world.i still have allot more reading to do,iam curios if you can change the key to any one backtrack.i found a really cool metal backing track,its in the key of D,can i change that too A?..i dig the key of A allot.but at the same time iam playing in all kind of keys,which is good.thanks for everything,truley appreciate everyones help here.ROCK ON.
btw now my most wonderfull wife which i love,tells me i should down size my gear.so i tell her really i just got it all back thank god for that.but shes right i do have stuff thats practically brand new that i dont need or use.being my age i dont see myself in a band,dont get me wrong i would love too be in a band,theres nothing like it.so i may be selling a whole lot of gear,one being my MARSHALL DSL15,I allready have one of my BSTAR HT5RW FOR SALE ON EBAY.THE ONE THING I DONT LIKE ABOUT EBAY IS THEY NOW TAKE 12% OF FINALE SALE PRICE to me thats alittle too much.but what can ya do.i have a new vox wah pedal that needs to go,i never use it.u know how gear junkies are,buy buy buy,use very little for the most part.i have 3 prs guitar straps one being a soft leather well i seen it and bought it knowing i never play standing up.that itself takes mad skills to do.i just never found myself comfortable standing while playin,so i resort to my barstool.talked enough.peace

Hi Axe, yes, you can change the key. Pressing the "speed" button brings up a menu which defaults to first being able to vary the speed of the song. If you use the left/right buttons, you can move over to "pitch", hit enter to actually turn the pitch shift on, and then set it to whatever pitch you need to. Be warned though, when you change the pitch, just like when you change the speed, there is a pretty noticeable drop in audio quality...

Thank you slip,i geuss i will leave it in the key of D.iam glad i asked that question.i fiqured that it would be possible to change keys,cause this boss does everthing,besides playing ur guitar for you.
Iam in need of a babysitter,so i can lock myself in my axe room.and then spend the whole day fooling with it.i need to go through the manul,i only thumb nailed it.i hope my blackstar sells on ebay.or i may put it on craigs list as well.discount for all GT members.oh yeah iam sorry slip to be a pain in the a@@,last qeustion slip promise.the input jack were u can plug in another guitar or bass ect.can you plug in a wah pedal in that input jack.i know they sell two different footswicth pedal,and a expression pedal too,that would also work as a wah pedal too.thanks pal.i do appreciate it.rock on my freind.

I think in terms of a wha pedal, you'd have to plug your guitar into the wha, and then the wha into the JS10. The other option might be to use an expression pedal as you suggested, but I haven't read about that.

Oh, and that backing track where I did the Phrygian Dominant demo is I believe "Metal Drop D"... you should be able to find it.

Have fun!

i was goin through all the amp models,pretty damm cool for now i choose the 5150 amp with some cool delay.
what are you useing as far as an amp model and effects.so far all i have is delay,the others will come in time know hurry takeing my time with this guy...
i have to say like i said before its now making a scracthy noise when i stop playin and the volume is on.it goes away when i shut the volume or dig this,it allso goes away when i touch the metal on my cable cord going into jack one.very strange.idk
another cool feature is,whatever the key of the backing track is in,say ur playing in drop d well ur guitar automatically is now tuned to drop d.
or eb ect.thats cool so you dont have to stop playin to tune ur guitar too eb,or d ect.the delay is wickedly sick sounding.

well i went through the manul,and for the life of me i dont see how to save pacthes.i picked out an amp model,the 5150 evh and added some delay.now i got to use it.but when i shut the unit off and turned it back on it was lost.btw the amp models are pretty cool,this is my first time useing something like this to were u can pick ur amp and effects,so i caint compare the amp modeling too anything.i registered it so iam good there,and there is a hotline # to call,which i will do that on monday.iam just missing something as far as saveing pacthes.
