ME-50: Selecting Patches

Tags: me-50
Patches are stored in the ME-50 in ten “banks,” numbered 0-9. Each bank holds three patches. To load a patch, you first select the bank that contains the patch, and then you select the patch. Use the following procedure to load Patch 5-3 (Bank 5, Patch 3) as an example:

1. Press the MOD 2 and DELAY 3 pedals simultaneously so MEMORY is lit red.

2. Press the BANK Left or Right so the number “5” flashes in the screen. This tells you that Bank 5 is selected and the the ME-50 is waiting for you to choose the desired patch in Bank 5.

3. Now step on Pedal 3. The “5” stops flashing and Patch 5-3 is loaded.

Note: Once you’ve selected a bank, it stays selected until you select another one. If you want to select a different patch from the current bank, simply press its pedal.
Using the same procedure, try out some of the other effects in the ME-50:

• 8-3 (Acoustic Simulator)
• 2-3 (Rotary)
• 8-2 (Uni-Vibe)
• 1-2 (Full Stack)
• 9-3 (Synth Lead)
• 0-2 (Octave Up)
• 7-3 (Slow Gear)

Note: When you connect two Boss FS-5U footswitches to the BANK UP/DOWN jacks using an insert cable, you can use your feet to move through the banks.
