Boss Releases new SL-20 Slicer FX Pedal!

The BOSS SL-20 Slicer is a new innovative twin pedal that instantly transforms a guitar, bass, keyboard, or vocal into a pulsating groove instrument.Inject a shot of high-octane fuel into your music with the SL-20 Slicer. It instantly transforms a guitar, bass, keyboard, or vocal into a pulsating groove instrument. Choose from 50 onboard Slice patterns or experiment with the SL-20’s innovative Harmonic Slicer feature, which generates percussive melodies, Loop Record, and unique 3D Panning.

Groove and Melody Maker
The SL-20 transforms your music into percussive “chopped” grooves. Fifty rhythmic patterns are onboard, with adjustable note attack and duration, plus amazing Harmonic Slice effects. Create high-energy patterns onstage in real-time, or use the SL-20 as a songwriting and recording tool. Play the sliced sounds in realtime while capturing them with Loop Record.

Flexible Control
An internal tap-tempo feature is included, as well as the ability to sync to external MIDI clock. Sound characteristics of the SL-20 such as attack, duration, effect level, and direct level can be controlled by the onboard knobs or from an external Expression pedal.

Universal FX
The SL-20 is an addictive effect that inspires creativity. It’s great for guitarists, but it’s equally useful for other instrumentalists as well. Plug in a bass, keyboard, iPod®, or any other instrument or music-playback device. DJs and dance-music artists will also love the SL-20 as a rhythmic-performance tool.

  1. oh dear god

  2. Any idea when I can buy one?

  3. I’ve played around with something similar to this, I guess. It was a peavey sound modulator thingy… couldn’t really find much use for it really. Could just get a sort of auto wah out of it, but what was the point. Ultimately not for me, but this box looks a bit better suited to the task in hand.
