IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT
SAFELY” on page 2–3, please read and observe the
following:
Power Supply
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being
used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter
(such as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air
conditioner), or that contains a motor. Depending on the way in
which the electrical appliance is used, power supply noise may
cause this unit to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it
is not practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet.
302
• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of
consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to
all units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to
speakers or other devices.
Placement
351
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum. To
alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or move
it farther away from the source of interference.
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do
not use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such
as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise
could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while
conversing. Should you experience such problems, you should
relocate such wireless devices so they are at a greater distance
from this unit, or switch them off.
354a
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices
that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise
subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or
discolor the unit.
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the temperature and/or humidity is very different, water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage or malfunction may
result if you attempt to use the unit in this condition. Therefore,
before using the unit, you must allow it to stand for several
hours, until the condensation has completely evaporated.
Maintenance
401a
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that
has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt,
use a cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to
avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Repairs and Data
452
• Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s memory may
be lost when the unit is sent for repairs. Important data should
always be backed up in another MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer),
or written down on paper (when possible). During repairs, due
care is taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in certain cases
(such as when circuitry related to memory itself is out of order),
we regret that it may not be possible to restore the data, and
Roland assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
Memory Backup
501b
• This unit contains a battery which powers the unit’s memory
circuits while the main power is off. When this battery becomes
weak, the message shown below will appear in the display. Once
you see this message, have the battery replaced with a fresh one
as soon as possible to avoid the loss of all data in memory. To
have the battery replaced, consult with your retailer, the nearest
Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as
listed on the “Information” sheet.
“Battery Low!”
Additional Precautions
551
• Please be aware that the contents of memory can be irretrievably
lost as a result of a malfunction, or the improper operation of the
unit. To protect yourself against the risk of loosing important
data, we recommend that you periodically save a backup copy of
important data you have stored in the unit’s memory in another
MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer)
552
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data
that was stored in the unit’s memory once it has been lost. Roland
Corporation assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
553
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s buttons,
sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks and
connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
554
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector
itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing
shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal elements.
558a
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s volume
at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use headphones, so you
do not need to be concerned about those around you (especially
when it is late at night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you
will need to use equivalent packaging materials.
561
• Use only the specified expression pedal (EV-5; sold separately).
By connecting any other expression pedals, you risk causing
malfunction and/or damage to the unit.
562
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using some other
make of connection cable, please note the following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables
that incorporate resistors for connecting to this unit. The use
of such cables can cause the sound level to be extremely low,
or impossible to hear. For information on cable specifications,
contact the manufacturer of the cable.

GT-8_e.book 8 ページ 2006年7月25日 火曜日 午後1時49分
Main Features
Highly Evolved COSM Amp/Speakers
The GT-8 includes amp/speaker systems that can be used simultaneously, utilizing COSM amp/speakers featuring 46
different amp types, including newly modeled amps. You can combine amps flexibly in a variety of ways; for example, by
mixing two amps together or setting them up in a stereo arrangement. What’s more, you can customize the amp and speaker
combinations, giving you the freedom to create your own original amp types.
A Variety of COSM Effects
The GT-8 features a wide variety of newly developed effects including “stereo dual delay,” “spring & modulation reverb,”
“sitar simulator,” “wave synth,” and more. Making full use of BOSS’s superior guitar effects technology, this is truly the
ultimate in guitar multi-effects devices.
Solo Switch and Dynamic Sense
The COSM amps feature a Solo Switch for each channel, which instantly imparts a feeling of greater power the moment it is
switched on. Additionally, Dynamic Sense provides seamless switching between two COSM amps in response to the nuances
of your picking.
The GT-8 also provides additional features—for example, it allows you to control effects with your guitar’s volume knob.
Quick Settings
Each effect incorporates Quick Settings, a function that lets you create the effects you like quickly and easily merely by
selecting preprogrammed settings. Storing your original settings then allows you to create your sound rapidly.
External Loop & Amp Control
The unit includes an external loop feature, which allows you to connect external effects devices. You can freely set the order
in which the GT-8’s effects are connected as well as the send and return levels. The GT-8 is also equipped with an amp control
jack, enabling you to use the GT-8 to switch preamp channels on the connected device. Whether you use it for live
performances or recording, you can make the GT-8 the centerpiece of your guitar platform.
Expression/Control Pedal and Internal Pedal System
The unit comes equipped with an expression pedal/switch and control pedal, which allow you to make separate function
settings for each individual patch. Not only can you use the expression pedal as a wah pedal or volume pedal and the control
pedal for holding sounds, the GT-8 also includes an “internal pedal system,” which allows you to realize even greater
flexibility in performance.
All the Basic Functions Needed for Professional Use
No compromises are made when it comes to basic functions. The GT-8 comes equipped with dedicated knob controls, which
allow you to make adjustments intuitively and in real time; input level/presence, which enables you to correct the tone of the
connected guitar; a Smooth Patch Change mode, which carries effect sounds over when you switch patches; high-quality 24bit A/D-D/A converter; a digital out (using a coaxial connector), which lets you switch between the dry sound, various
effects sound, and the master output; and more.
COSM (Composite Object Sound Modeling)
Composite Object Sound Modeling (COSM) is Roland’s innovative and powerful sound modeling technology.
COSM analyzes the many factors that make up the original sound, such as the electrical and physical characteristics of
the original, and then produces a digital model that can reproduce the same sound.

What is a Patch?
The GT-8 can store 340 combinations (or “sets”) of effects and
parameter settings. Each of these sets is called a “patch,”
with patches organized by bank and number as shown
below.
fig.02-010
How to Switch Patches
(Patch Change)
Patches are switched by selecting a “bank” (1–85) and
“number” (1-4). The bank and number appear in the GT-8’s
display as shown in the following figure.
fig.02-040d

Bank 1
User Banks (1–35)
Newly created effects settings are saved in the User banks.
Patches in these banks are called “User patches.”
A “U” appears in the right display when a User patch is
being used.
fig.02-020d
Preset Banks (36–85)
The Preset banks contain effect settings that really help bring
out the special characteristics of the GT-8. The patches in
these banks are called “Preset patches.” Although you cannot
overwrite the Preset patches with your own settings, you can
change (edit) a Preset patch’s settings, then save the result as
a User patch.
* When selecting a patch, even if a new bank is selected, the
patch is not switched until you also choose the number. If you
want to be able to switch patches merely by selecting a
different bank, carry out the Bank Change mode (p. 72)
setting.
You can also switch patches with the PATCH/VALUE dial.
You can also set the unit so certain effects continue to be
used with a following patch after you switch patches. For
details, refer to “Keeping Effect Sounds Playing After
Patches Are Switched (Patch Change Mode)” (p. 71).

Chapter 3 Saving the Tones You Have Created
Initializing Patches with a Tone
Similar to What You Have in Mind
If you already have a clear idea about the kind of sound you
want to create, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by
starting out with a patch that is relatively similar to what you
have in mind, then tweak its settings until you arrive at what
you want. In addition to the patches actually used in
performances, the GT-8 also offers a collection of sample
settings that are a great help in creating new patches.
These are called “EZ Tones.”
You can use the EZ Tone function to quickly find and call up
settings that are close to the sound you want to create.

Storing Settings by Effect
(User Quick Settings)
In addition to storing settings in the form of patches, you can
also store settings in terms of their effect.
Since you can use such stored settings in other patches, just
like with the Preset Quick Settings (p. 18), storing the settings
you like ahead of time as effects is a convenient way to create
new patches.

Chapter 4 Introduction to Effects and Parameters
In this chapter you will find detailed descriptions for each of
the GT-8’s onboard effects, and the parameters used to
control them.
The sound being input to each effect is called the “direct
sound,” and the sound modified by the effect is called
the “effect sound.”
The trademarks listed in this document are trademarks
of their respective owners, which are separate companies
from BOSS. Those companies are not affiliated with
BOSS and have not licensed or authorized BOSS’s GT-8.
Their marks are used solely to identify the equipment
whose sound is simulated by BOSS’s GT-8.
PREAMP/SPEAKER (Preamp/

When it is on, the pitch change of the synthesizer sound is in semitone steps. This does not respond to pitch changes less than a semitone, such as what might be obtained with bending or vibrato. Thus,
this is effectively used for realistically playing musical instruments
whose pitch will change in steps greater than a semitone, such as a
keyboard.

Chapter 4 Introduction to Effects and Parameters
MASTER
Master BPM
The following parameters can be set with MASTER.
• NS (Noise Suppressor)
• Patch Level
NS (Noise Suppressor)
This effect reduces the noise and hum picked up by guitar
pickups. Since it suppresses the noise in synchronization with
the envelope of the guitar sound (the way in which the guitar
sound decays over time), it has very little effect on the guitar
sound, and does not harm the natural character of the sound.
* When you have an external MIDI device connected, the Master BPM
synchronizes to the external MIDI device’s tempo, making it impossible
to set the Master BPM. To enable setting of the Master BPM, set
“MIDI Sync Clock” (p. 80) to Internal.
Control with the Master BPM
To input the Master BPM with the CTL pedal, set CTL
Pedal Function (p. 54) to “Master BPM (Tap).”
FV (Foot Volume)
Explanation
Effect
Switches the noise suppressor effect on/off.
This parameter can be set with the PATCH/VALUE dial.
When NS is On, the [MASTER] indicator lights.
* Even if [MASTER] is pressed, you cannot switch the noise suppressor
on and off.
This is a volume control effect. Usually, this is controlled to
the EXP pedal.
Parameter/
Range
Adjust this parameter as appropriate for the
volume of the noise.
If the noise level is high, a higher setting is appropriate. If the noise
level is low, a lower setting is appropriate. Adjust this value until the
decay of the guitar sound is as natural as possible.

Chapter 5 Using Pedals to Control the Effects
With the GT-8, each effect features various different
parameters, and you can adjust these as you perform to
produce even more effective changes in your tones.
Although the GT-8’s CTL and EXP pedals and other
controllers already feature settings allowing them to be used
in switching effects on and off and for wah pedal, foot
volume, and other functions, you can also control the
parameters you prefer by assigning them to these pedals.
You can also control parameters using external pedals, MIDI
devices, or other gear connected to the GT-8.
On top of all this, the GT-8 features an “internal pedal
system,” which lets you produce effects including automatic
changes of parameters in real time, thus enabling you to
create an even greater wealth of tonal changes.

You can have settings assigned to a foot switch (FS-6/FS-5U)
or expression pedal (EV-5) connected to the rear panel’s EXP
PEDAL/CTL1,2 jacks as common settings applied globally to
the GT-8.
If you want to be able to change the CTL pedal, EXP pedal
switch, and EXP pedal functions for each individual patch,
for example using the EXP pedal to change the volume in one
patch, and then in another patch using the EXP pedal as a
wah pedal, use the “Assign CTL/EXP” settings.
“Setting the Operation of the CTL Pedal, EXP Pedal Switch,
and EXP Pedal (Assign CTL/EXP)” (p. 56)
Setting GT-8 and External Controller
Functions to Individual Patches
When you want to freely assign and control effect
parameters to the GT-8’s own controllers (CTL/EXP pedals,
EXP pedal switch) as well as external controllers (foot switch
and expression pedal) connected to the rear panel’s EXP
PEDAL/CTL1,2 jacks, use the “Assign Variable “settings.
In each patch you can set up to eight different types (Assign
numbers) determining which parameter is to be controlled
by a particular controller.
* You can use the Internal Pedal System with “Assign Variable.”
In addition, you can use the “Assign Variable” function to set
controllers using Control Change messages from external
MIDI devices.
“Setting the Operation of the GT-8 and External Controllers
(Assign Variable)” (p. 57)
When using “ASSIGN CTL/EXP” and “ASSIGN

When using an external foot switch, or other controller that
acts as an on/off switch, “Min” is selected with Off
(CLOSED), and “Max” is selected with On (OPEN).
When using an external expression pedal or other controller
that generates a consecutive change in the value, the value of
the setting changes accordingly, within the range set by the
minimum and maximum values.
Also, when the target is of an on/off type, the median value
of the received data is used as the dividing line in
determining whether to switch it on or off.

Internal Pedal System
Active Range
fig.05-180d
The GT-8 features a function called Internal Pedal system.
This function assigns specified parameters to a virtual EXP
pedal (the internal pedal), providing an effect that changes
volume and tone in real time just the way an expression
pedal functions.
This sets the operational range within which the value of the
setting changes when an expression pedal or other controller
that changes the value consecutively is used as the source. If
the controller is moved outside the operational range, the
value does not change, it stops at “minimum” or
“maximum.”
The Internal Pedal system features the following two
functions, allowing you to set “Source” for each assign
number (1–8) of the Assign Variable.

Using the Guitar Volume to Change
Selected Effect Parameters (Assign Source)
The GT-8’s Preamp/Speaker feature includes a “Dynamic
Mode” (p. 26) setting, which switches the two preamps in
response to the guitar volume.
Assign Variable (p. 57) features a function that allows effect
parameters to be controlled with the guitar volume, in the
same manner as the parameters are changed with an
expression pedal or other such controller.
During a performance, for example, you can use the guitar
volume to switch between a crunch sound and a lead sound,
even without switching patches or adjusting any knobs.
* You will hear the sound of Channel A when the guitar volume
is low, and Channel B when the volume is high.
You can set this feature to create even more distortion as the
guitar volume increases, deepen the chorus effect as a long
tone is played quietly, or use it to produce any of a number
of other effects to suit your purposes.

in All Patches (Preamp Mode)
The GT-8 features a mode that is enabled when spatial effects
(such as reverb and delay) are used, whereby the effects
sound of one patch continues playing even after you switch
to the next patch. If the necessary conditions regarding the
effects chain and effect parameter settings are met, you can
then have the decay of reverb, delay, and similar effects
continue on into the next patch after you switch patches.
With the GT-8, you can have a preamp be set globally for use

Using the GT-8 with External MIDI Devices Connected
What Can You Do with MIDI?
You can perform the following operations using MIDI with
the GT-8.
* The use of MIDI requires that the MIDI channels of the
connected devices match. If the MIDI channel settings are not
correct, the GT-8 will be unable to exchange data with other
MIDI devices.
Operating From the GT-8
Outputting Program Change Messages
When a patch is selected on the GT-8, a Program Change
message corresponding to the patch number is transmitted
simultaneously. The external MIDI device then switches its
settings according to the Program Change message it
receives.

You can set up the correspondence between MIDI Program
Change messages and the GT-8’s patches using the Program
Change Map (p. 83). You may need to work on these
correspondences when you want to line up some effects in
combination with other MIDI devices.
The connections shown in the figure below are for a
sequencer automatically performing the backing as a guitar
is being played. The patches are switched automatically
when the program numbers corresponding to the patches are
input along with the performance data at the points where
you have determined the GT-8 patches are to be switched.

things) manipulate the parameters of an external MIDI
device.
Transmitting Data
You can control specified parameters during a performance

Changing patches using bank select messages
A bank select message consists of a set of two control change messages, the controllers numbered 0 (CC#0) and 32 (CC#32).
Normally, you select a sound by using the bank select message followed by a program change message. On the GT-8, these
messages are used for changing patch numbers.
Changing patch numbers on an external MIDI device from the GT-8
When a patch is selected on the GT-8, the bank select and program change messages sent from the GT-8 correspond with each
other as shown below.

About MIDI
MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface,
and is a world-wide standard for allowing electronic musical
equipment to communicate by transmitting messages such as
performance information and sound selections. Any MIDI
equipped device is able to transmit applicable types of data
to another MIDI equipped device, even if the two devices are
different models or were made by different manufacturers.
In MIDI, performance information such as playing a key or
pressing a pedal are transmitted as MIDI Messages.
How MIDI messages are
transmitted and received
First, we will explain briefly how MIDI messages are
transmitted and received.
MIDI connectors
The following types of connector are used to convey MIDI
messages. MIDI cables are connected to these connectors as
needed.
fig.09-010
MIDI has sixteen channels 1–16, and MIDI messages will be
received by the instrument (the receiving device) whose
channel matches the channel of the transmitter.
* If omni mode is on, data of all MIDI channels will be received
regardless of the MIDI channel setting. If you do not need to
control a specific MIDI channel, you may set Omni On.
Main types of MIDI message
used by the GT-8
MIDI includes many types of MIDI messages that can convey
a variety of information. MIDI messages can be broadly
divided into two types; messages that are handled separately
by MIDI channel (channel messages), and messages that are
handled without reference to a MIDI channel (system
messages).
Channel messages
These messages are used to convey performance
information. Normally these messages perform most of the
control. The way in which a receiving device will react to
each type of MIDI message will be determined by the
settings of the receiving device.
Program change messages
MIDI IN:
This connector receives messages from another MIDI device.
MIDI OUT
This connector transmits messages from this
device.
MIDI THRU
This connector re-transmits the messages
that were received at MIDI IN.
* The GT-8 features both “MIDI IN” and “MIDI OUT” connectors.
Control change messages
These messages are used to enhance the expressiveness of a
performance. Each message includes a controller number,
and the settings of the receiving device will determine what
aspect of the sound will be affected by control change
messages of a given controller number.
The specified parameters can be controlled with the GT-8.
MIDI channels
MIDI is able to independently control more than one MIDI
device over a single MIDI cable. This is possible because of
the concept of MIDI channels.
The idea of MIDI channels is somewhat similar to the idea of
television channels. By changing channels on a television set,
you can view a variety of programs. This is because the
information of a particular channel is received when the
channels of the transmitter and receiver match.
fig.09-020
T.V. information from many different broadcasting station is
sent through an antena.

Station B

Station C

station you wish to watch
System messages
System messages include exclusive messages, messages used
for synchronization, and messages used to keep a MIDI
system running correctly.
Exclusive messages
Exclusive messages handle information related to a unit’s
own unique sounds, or other device-specific information.
Generally, such messages can only be exchanged between
devices of the same model by the same manufacturer.
Exclusive messages can be employed to save the settings for
effects programs into a sequencer, or for transferring such
data to another GT-8.
The two instruments must be set to the same device ID
numbers when exchanging SysEx messages.

Station A
These messages are generally used to select sounds, and
include a program change number from 1 to 128 which
specifies the desired sound. The GT-8 also allows you to
select any of the 340 different patch numbers in conjunction
with bank select messages; a type of control change message.

About the MIDI implementation
Error Messages
MIDI allows a variety of messages to be exchanged between
instruments, but it is not necessarily the case that all types of
message can be exchanged between any two MIDI devices.
Two devices can communicate only if they both use the types
of messages that they have in common.
If you attempt an incorrect operation or if an operation could
not be executed, the display will indicate an error message.
Refer to this list and take the appropriate action.
Thus, every owner’s manual for a MIDI device includes a
“MIDI Implementation Chart.” This chart shows the types of
message that the device is able to transmit and receive. By
comparing the MIDI implementation charts of two devices,
you can tell at a glance which messages they will be able to
exchange. Since the charts are always of a uniform size, you
can simply place the two charts side by side.

Troubleshooting
If there is no sound or other operational problems occur, first
check through the following solutions. If this does not
resolve the problem, then contact your dealer or a nearby
Roland service station.
The volume level of the instrument
connected to INPUT and RETURN are
too low
❍
Could you be using a connection cable that contains a
resistor?
→ Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.
Troubleshooting Problems with
the Sound
Patch does not change
❍
No sound/volume too low
❍
Are the connection cables broken?
→ Try using a different set of connection cables.
❍
Is the GT-8 correctly connected to the other devices?
→ Check connections with the other devices (p. 13).
❍
Is the connected amp/mixer turned off, or the volume
lowered?
→ Check the settings of your amp/mixer system.
❍
Is the OUTPUT LEVEL knob lowered?
→ Adjust the OUTPUT LEVEL knob to an appropriate
position (p. 14).
❍
Is Tuner set to On?
Is something other than the Play screen shown in the
display?
→ On the GT-8, patches can be selected only when the Play
screen is displayed. Press [EXIT] to return to the Play
screen (p. 14).
No change in preamp tone even after
switching patches
❍
Has the GT-8 been set to “System” (p. 71) in Preamp
mode?
→ When the GT-8 is set to “System” in Preamp mode, the
preamp settings do not change when patches are
switched.
To make different preamp settings for individual
patches, choose the “Patch” setting in Preamp mode.
→ When the volume is set to “Mute” in the Tuner mode,
even the direct sound will not be output by setting the
Tuner to “On” (p. 77).
Unable to change parameters with the
knobs or PATCH/VALUE dial
❍
❍
Is each effect set correctly?
→ Use the “Meter function” (p. 75) to check the output level
of each effect. If there is an effect for which the meter
does not move, check the settings for that effect.
❍
Is “FV: Level” or “MST: Patch Level” specified as a pedal
assign Target?
→ Move the controller to which it is assigned.
❍
Is the power to the external device connected to the
SEND/RETURN jack off, or is the volume of the device
turned down?
→ Check the settings for the connected device.
Are you using the Internal Pedal System (p. 61) in
Assign?
→ When the Assign Source is set to “Internal Pedal” or
“Wave Pedal,” the effect parameter set as the Assign
Target changes automatically.
If you want to be able to change the parameters
manually with the knobs and PATCH/VALUE dial, first
switch off Assign to deactivate the Internal Pedal
System.
❍
Is “INPUT LEVEL” (p. 60) set as the Assign Source in
Assign?
89
Appendices
→ When “INPUT LEVEL” is set for the Assign Source, the
effect parameter set as the Assign Target changes
automatically according to the level of the input from the
guitar (the playing dynamics).
If you want to be able to change the parameters
manually with the knobs and PATCH/VALUE dial, first
switch off Assign.
