My name is William Taylor Prichard author of "Open Tunings for Jazz Guitar Improvisation"
First off , I've owned every guitar synth ever made by Roland... and have had a love hate relationship with everyone. They are all great tools in the studio...and for the most part I haven't needed to hire keyboard players for years. However, they are all quirky...and almost every patch must be "coddled" by applying technique that it can handle before you can record a "non glitch " pass with it.
Personally, the tracking has been very manageable for the last 6 generations...its not latency thats a problem,
it's the "after touch"... releasing a note without a little "pig squeal" or "chirp" of a note that you didn't play.
Also...with the exception of the old Gr-300 and Gr-700..all the recent models since the late 80's have been
"sample players"...not real synthesizers with real "oscillators".
All that has changed! no triggered samples ,no hex pickup, ZERO latency and ZERO aftertouch issues.
This puppy takes your favorite guitar, just the way it is with a regular cable to input...and juices it through 3
oscillators! Each one has its own menu of all the boss effects to apply individually...and a master effect menu that can be applied to all 3 on the main outs!
In a lot of ways, its closer to playing thru your favorite overdrive or efx pedal. plug in and start twisting knobs
in real time and hear the difference! Now , keep in mind that oscillators are very complex critters.
Think of the principles behind a complex high end studio compressor... there's a lot of knobs and they all effect one another and interact. It takes a little time to understand the whole concept, but once you do it can produce dramatic results! So to with the SY-300. its got a lot of great presets, and thats always the best place to start tweaking. the manual is clear and concise. and you don't even have to open it, before you plug in and start having fun! bottom line ... IT ROCKS

.This is the best guitar synth on the market. Zero Latency, Tracks every note with no hick ups, and you don't need to install anything on your guitar (also works on Bass)! Thank you to Roland for making my favorite product this year!
Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer
.I am a fan of the Roland GR-55, and had resigned my self to using one guitar with the GK-3 pickup. Making sure I nor my band mates trod on the 13-pin cable was quite exhausting. I saw the literature on the SY-300 and thought, "No way could this track with out modifications." WRONG!!!! Right out the box, this baby wailed. So far I've only used the presets and pre-loaded user patches. They have been more than enough to wow audiences and some of my band mates (the Keyboard Player has not given a blessing, lmbo). Not having experience programming a true synthesizer, I can't say whether or not this pedal is lacking. But for now, it kicks a..!

.I agree with the other reviews. Fantastic! And try plugging a keyboard into it...

.I don't have to wreck my guitar by adding something to it to make a synth work. Just plug it in and start jam,omg/.
Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer
.Only have used it for 1 week and i'm a little intimidated about creating my own patches. The presets seem heavy on distorted metal sounds that I will rarely use. The ones that I plan to use are fantastic. I see great potential with this guitar synth for me, as discover more. The number of preset patches that i'm becoming comfortable with is growing daily. There is a lot of variance in the power or volume of these different presets but the unit has incredible power and can easily be increased or decreased.

Gets better every time I turn it on!
Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer
.I've been using Roland guitar synths for a few generations since the GR-1 and I now own a GR-55 which I really like, especially the V section, and I've been given the opportunity to test this new synth for Roland Canada. I must say I love the freedom of just one guitar cable! And the tracking is immediate and tight - it follows your every feel, bend, attack, harmonics even and the sound changes between pickups too. I've owned Moogs so this synth is super easy to program especially when using the Boss Tone Studio, but it has all the added effects that a guitarist is used to and many ways of chaining it all together. I'm new at this one but already it feels like an old friend! I will definitely buy it off Roland when the tryout period expires.
Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer
.Great Guitar synthesizer. Fabulous sound, particularly, the Organ based effects and the GR300 style lead tones. I use it in parallel with a Roland GR-55 and a BOSS GP-10 from the "Guitar Out" Jack of the GR-55. A product which is a long time coming. This pedal has ZERO latency and it's chief attraction is that it can be played with a real organic feel. You really can use your own guitar technique and it responds to everything-picking, harmonics, the works! Many of the presets are of no use to me, but no matter has I like to edit my own sounds. The editing is quite versatile and relatively easy. A little noisy on some patches but, overall, a great addition to my effects arsenal.
Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer
.I have it on a sliding rack in my studio- and I use the Line out on Helix , or just straight in from the guitar to feed the SY-300 input. There IS an editor and a nice one you can download from Boss for this, and once you start playing and learning (its not that hard) with that, this is when the SY300 starts to really SHINE bright tone wise. The factory settings are ok, but are mainly designed to "show-off" what the SY-300 can do. It has Main outs (I use the mono side for return back to Helix) and "Sub-Outs" (I use these for inputs to my Apollo interface), and its very well ported for many other hookups. And, the important thing is there is 0 latency while playing- ZERO!!!
