The ME-80 takes the very best of individual stompbox simplicity and combines it with the multi FX flexibility. Each separate FX module has its own dedicated knobs and footswitch (8 in total) so it only takes a glance down to see what effects are on and what settings are available. And it makes it unbelievably easy to tweak your settings on the fly, something that is a nightmare with other multi FX units that have you scrolling through endless menus with no visual feedback.
The ME-80 possesses many of its sounds used in the flagship Boss GT100, which is powered by COSM processing algorythmns for dynamic realistic tones constructed from decades of experience. It's true that Boss is number 1 in most people's minds for effects and the ME-80 doesn't disappoint with a wide range of great sounds including amp effects, modulation, delays, reverbs and more.
Advanced users can look beyond manual stompbox mode and get creative making their own patches and banks of effects. It's a lot like having a whole pedal board complete with a programmable controller all in one unit just at a fraction of the cost.
