In this article, we will introduce you to some of the most popular and impressive artist patches for the GR-55, which are available for free download from Roland's website.

You will learn how to use the GR-55 Librarian application to load and transfer patches to and from your GR-55, and how to customize them to suit your needs.

What are artist patches

Artist patches are patches that are inspired by or modeled after the sounds of famous guitarists or bands. They can help you recreate classic tones or learn new techniques from your favorite players. Some artist patches are faithful reproductions of specific songs or albums, while others are more general interpretations of a style or genre.

The GR-55 comes with 297 user patches that you can edit and overwrite as you wish. You can also download additional artist patches from Roland's website, which are organized by categories such as rock, metal, jazz, blues, country, pop, and more. You can find patches that emulate the sounds of Eric Johnson, Steve Stevens, Jeff Loomis, Gary Willis, Robert Marcello, and many others.

How to load and transfer artist patches with the GR-55 Librarian application

The GR-55 Librarian application is a software program that allows you to manage your patches on your computer. You can use it to load and transfer patches to and from your GR-55 via a USB cable. You can also use it to edit, rename, copy, delete, and organize your patches in banks and folders.

To use the GR-55 Librarian application, you need to download and install it from Roland's website[^1^]. You also need to download the artist patches that you want to use from the same website[^2^]. The artist patches are in .g5l format, which can be opened by the Librarian application.

Once you have installed the Librarian application and downloaded the artist patches, follow these steps to load them into your GR-55:

Connect your GR-55 to your computer via a USB cable.

Turn on your GR-55 and select USB mode by pressing SYSTEM/USB.

Launch the Librarian application on your computer.

Click on File > Open and browse to the folder where you saved the artist patches.

Select the patch file that you want to load and click Open.

The patch file will appear in the Librarian window as a bank of three patches.

You can preview each patch by clicking on its name and playing your guitar.

To transfer a patch to your GR-55, drag and drop it from the Librarian window to an empty user patch slot on the right side of the window.

A dialog box will appear asking you to confirm the transfer. Click OK.

The patch will be transferred to your GR-55 and stored in the selected user patch slot.

You can repeat this process for as many patches as you want.

When you are done, click on File > Save As and save your user patch bank as a .g5l file on your computer for backup.

Disconnect your GR-55 from your computer and turn it off.

You can now access your loaded artist patches from your GR-55 by selecting USER mode and choosing the corresponding user patch slot.

How to customize artist patches

One of the great things about the GR-55 is that you can edit any patch to suit your preferences. You can tweak parameters such as volume, tone, effects, tuning, expression pedal assignment, etc. You can also layer up to four tones per patch, including PCM synth sounds, COSM guitar modeling sounds, normal guitar sounds, or external audio input 248dff8e21
