Boss multi-effects processors aren’t exactly known for their good looks but are definitely well known for the great tones packed inside them. However that all changes as of now, at MusikMesse 2014 BOSS will launch their new desktop processor, the GT-001, packed with all the amps and effects of the flagship GT-100 Version 2.0 in a stylish looking unit with an intuitive interface perfect for your home studio. The GT-001 includes an electric guitar input and also an XLR mic input so that you can process acoustic guitar and even vocals and connect directly to your DAW via USB.

Like the GT-100, the GT-001 offers powerful sound creation possibilities with dual amps and effects chains and flexible routing options. On top of that, a newly developed guitar-to-MIDI function lets you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer programs from a normal guitar input—no special pickup required! Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO software provides a cool graphical interface for tweaking tones from your computer, plus access to BOSS TONE CENTRAL for free studio-ready patches and much more.
