Under the hood of the GT-001 is a full-featured Boss multi-effects processor. Its COSM amps and effects are equivalent to the GT-100 with Version 2.0 software and patch data can be shared between the two. Dual effects chains allow you to create tones with two amps and series/parallel effects routings. Advanced parameters include a channel divide function that lets you switch effects chains manually or according to frequency or playing dynamics, and adjustable left/right mixing for audio capture in your DAW.
A Powerful Tool for DAW Music Production
Via a single USB cable, the Boss GT-001 functions as a high-quality audio interface for your Mac or Windows computer. 4 audio channels provide lots of flexibility for recording, re-amping, and mixing. You can listen to the GT-001’s amps and effects while capturing an unprocessed signal in your DAW, simultaneously record processed and dry tones on separate tracks, and listen to your mix while re-amping and adjusting tones through the GT-001. Power the GT-001 with either the included AC adapter or a computer’s USB bus.
XLR Mic Input and Patches Designed for Vocals and Acoustic Guitars
The GT-001 is not just a guitar processor—you can also connect a mic to capture vocal and acoustic instrument performances into your DAW. The XLR mic input is equipped with phantom power, allowing you to use a condenser mic. Specially designed patches for vocals and acoustic guitars are included, providing great sound for monitoring and tracking. The GT-001 also has a stereo aux input, perfect for connecting a smart phone or drum machine for jamming when you’re not connected to your computer.
Enjoy Computer-Based MIDI instruments
The GT-001 includes a monophonic guitar-to-MIDI function that allows you to play soft synths and other MIDI instruments in your computer from your normal axe, with no special pickup required. Powered by newly developed Boss technology, this cool and convenient function is great fun when working with Roland’s free Guitar Friend Jam software, and also lets you experiment with using your guitar to create MIDI sequences in music production software.
Edit and Organize Sounds with Boss Tone Studio
Available as a free download for Mac or Windows, Boss Tone Studio gives you an intuitive graphical interface for creating and editing GT-001 effects patches from your computer via USB.
