boss gt-1000

Breakthrough Boss TechnologyThe Boss GT-1000 ushers in a new era of performance in amp/effects processors by delivering unmatched sound quality and musical expression. This ultimate tone machine introduces the ground-breaking AIRD (Augmented Impulse Response Dynamics) technology, created after decades of advanced BOSS research and supported by an ultra-fast DSP engine, 32-bit AD/DA, 32-bit floating-point processing, and 96 kHz sampling rate throughout. The GT-1000 continues to improve through ongoing firmware development, with extended features such as new amps and effects, bass support, and other functionality enhancements users have wished for.

Based on BOSS’s renowned Tube Logic technology, the comprehensive AIRD system in the GT-1000 delivers unparalleled musical response and flexibility to a digital guitar processor. AIRD amplifiers work just like real tube amps, giving you inspiring characteristics and authentic tonal dynamics that were unattainable in a digital processor until now. Complex AIRD Output Select functionality takes things to a new level, meaning you can continuously achieve great tones with any setup, from basic guitar amps to full-range playback systems.

The GT-1000 also comes with a massive range of cutting-edge BOSS effects, with several routing options and extensive real-time control within your reach, with the convenient built-in Bluetooth®, you can edit sounds, configure control assignments, and set up patches wirelessly from your mobile device using the BOSS Tone Studio app. Featuring epic power in a streamlined pro design, the GT-1000 has raised the bar, bringing new levels of creative expression to all guitarists and bassists.

Designed for Unparalleled Sound Quality

boss gt-1000

3x The PowerProving to be BOSS’s most advanced amp/effects processor to date, the GT-1000 is built for no-compromise audio performance. Being the first-ever guitar multi-effects unit with 32-bit AD/DA, 32-bit floating-point processing, and 96 kHz sampling rate throughout. There’s an all-new DSP engine too, designed especially for music applications and featuring over three times the power of previous generations.

This incredible processing muscle gives you far more sonic detail than ever previously possible, making it quick and simple to get the sounds you desire without endless parameter editing and microscopic EQ adjustments. If you’ve avoided other amp/effects processors because they’re difficult to dial in and missing that realistic feel, the GT-1000 will certainly change your mind.

AIRD: A Revolution in Digital Amp Processing

boss gt-1000

Highly Musical Guitar AmplifiersAt the heart of the GT-1000 is BOSS’s breakthrough AIRD technology for previously unachievable musical power. Based on the comprehensive Tube Logic concept behind the well-known Katana, Waza, and Blues Cube amplifiers, AIRD takes the amp processor to a new level of performance, flexibility, and practical usability.

The tube amplifiers that guitarists swear by are interactive, highly expressive musical instruments that are far more than just a combination of individual components. The Tube Logic design philosophy fully recognizes this interactive experience, and it’s been massively successful in the self-contained guitar amps where it’s been used. Bringing this approach to a guitar processor like the GT-1000 sees many challenges, because players will use it with a range of external amplification systems that add their own colouring to the sound. BOSS created AIRD to battle these challenges, employing complex techniques to guarantee that the GT-1000’s ground-breaking musical response can be consistently used with any set up.

The GT-1000 features incredibly expressive guitar amplifiers, all carefully crafted with AIRD. In contrast to traditional modeling techniques, AIRD reproduces the complex internal component interactions of tube amps in every detail, from guitar input to speaker output and everything in-between. The result is a fully interactive system that’s a living, breathing instrument, just like the high-end tube amps you know and love.

A main of AIRD is the reactive amp/speaker relationship, which is crucial to the dynamic feel and musical responsive of tube amplifiers. This vital relationship is completely brought to life with the GT-1000’s amps, generating guitar tones that are brought to life with punch, presence, and depth. Thanks to AIRD, your sound always feels great under your fingers and works perfectly in the mix, providing for a truly organic musical experience that’s never been available before from a digital guitar processor.

The GT-1000 comes with a wide range of BOSS original amplifiers suitable for all guitar styles, from super-clean to ultra-heavy. Several amp types use Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology for dynamic, creative tone that goes far beyond the capabilities of analog designs. Classic tube amps throughout history are also included, from boutique vintage combos to modern high-gain heads. Two amps can be used at once in a single patch, so you can switch between two sounds, blend amps for complex tones, or achieve huge, expansive sound in stereo setups.

AIRD enables the GT-1000 to flow seamlessly into any creative setup, so you can enjoy great tone and response with little adjustment. By choosing from a large selection of AIRD Output Select types, you can perfectly tailor the GT-1000 for any destination, whether it’s a guitar amp input, an amp effects return, a power amp driving guitar speakers, or a full-range monitoring system. There are built-in AIRD Output Select types for a wide range of amps, along with two user locations for loading extra selections from the GT-1000 AIRD Output Select Library software.

AIRD is fully built into the GT-1000’s amplifiers at every level, so you’ll always experience their authentic sound and interactive response no matter what set up is in use. With the ability to apply different AIRD Output Select settings to the main and sub outputs, you can set the sound for two destinations at once, such as a guitar amp input and a direct feed to a house PA. The GT-1000's outputs also feature independent ground lift functions, making it easy to eliminate any hum issues that might be introduced using external devices.

Extraordinary Effects

Intelligent DynamicsAs expected from a flagship BOSS processor, the GT-1000 is packed with a huge range of effects, from overdrives and distortions to irregular effects like Slicer, Slow Gear, and a host of others. Many selections use BOSS’s MDP tech, which intelligently adapts to your dynamics and playing register to achieve the ideal sound.

Complex algorithms from the renowned DD-500 Digital Delay, MD-500 Modulation, and RV-500 Reverb pedals are also included, along with sophisticated Acoustic Resonance processing inherited from the AD-10 pedal for acoustic/electric guitar.

Amps and effects can be configured with several series and parallel routing options, and signal paths can be separated and mixed at several points. Patch switching is incredibly fast thanks to the GT-1000’s speedy DSP, and delay carryover is also possible. There are two effects loops too, allowing you to connect your favorite external effects and preamps.

Streamlined Design

boss gt-1000

Compact & PortableIn a modern music world, players need to travel as light as possible, BOSS designed the GT-1000 with this in mind, with maximum control in a small amount of space. In comparison to other processors in its league, the GT-1000 offers a compact, streamlined design that’s easy to transport and set up.

The metal chassis is both strong and light, and comes with a range of freely assignable footswitches and an integrated expression pedal. New and improved especially for the GT-1000, the low-profile footswitches reduce size and weight while keeping the rugged durability that all BOSS equipment is known for.

Intuitive Interface

boss gt-1000

Intensive Performance ControlWith the GT-1000’s large display and six switching knobs, the process of creating and editing sounds is smooth and efficient. Four different Play screen layouts offer multiple viewing options for various patch functions, you can also customize the knobs for quick access to specific parameters. When editing, the signal chain is clearly displayed, and it’s simple to choose effects blocks, adjust parameters, and mix up the order. The available parameters for selected effects can be displayed in layers, letting you see everything at once on screen.

The new workflow feature in the GT-1000 is the ability to save any effect as a “Stompbox.” Parameter adjustments to a Stompbox are reflected in all patches where it’s used, basically recreating the way you would use physical pedals. This is ideal for effects where you use the same settings most of the time, but just need to make occasional small adjustments. You can now make those changes quickly across multiple patches, removing the hassle of tweaking and saving each patch separately.

Featuring ten footswitches and expression pedal with toe switch, the GT-1000 gives you complex creative control on stage and in the studio. And if you’re a power user, there’s support for additional control using external switches, pedals, MIDI, and USB. By default, the main footswitches are assigned to select patches, patch banks, and three control assignments. But you can set the switches to control almost any function. Using the GT-1000’s switching knobs and powerful Assign Matrix, control assignments are quick and simple. You can even assign different colors to the status LEDs above the switches, and easily view the current switch assignments with a Play screen option.

While all of the GT-1000’s footswitches are freely assignable per patch, there may be times when you need even more control. Manual mode allows you to set up on/off access to any amp or effect on a secondary layer, which you can toggle between with a footswitch assignment. The brand-new Pedalboard mode takes an even more direct approach for players wanting a traditional stomp experience, providing a dynamic effects layout that’s outside the normal patch structure and always ready to go when you need. Along with all of this, all footswitch modes now offer top-level access to function assignment and parameter control for assigned effects, allowing you to make changes on the go with no deep menu diving.

The New Bass Multi-Effects Flagship

Next-Generation Sound QualityBOSS’s powerful GT-10B was an all time favorite for creative bassists, providing top-flight amps, effects, and DI capabilities in one convenient floorboard. Now, the GT-1000 takes bass processing to new levels with next-generation sound quality, ultra-flexible performance features, and an even more compact size. Three AIRD bass preamps are available for shaping your core tone, while eight different overdrive/distortion effects are available for extra color and gain. There’s an MDP bass compressor too, plus chorus, flanger, touch wah, and several other effect types specially tuned for bass.

USB Audio/MIDI & Wireless Editing

Bluetooth ConnectivityThe GT-1000’s well-organized panel interface is incredibly easy to navigate, but things get even easier with your smartphone or tablet. The GT-1000 comes with onboard Bluetooth—a first for a pro-level amp/effects processor—allowing you to wirelessly control sounds from the dedicated BOSS Tone Studio app for iOS and Android. If you're at home, in rehearsal, or on stage, you can comfortably alter the GT-1000 from your device without having to bend over and edit using the hardware. You can even record a riff with the GT-1000’s built-in looper, and then walk round the venue and adjust tones from the audience position!

The GT-1000 also features a USB audio/MIDI interface, with multi-channel audio operation for flexible computer recording and efficient re-amping. A Recording mode allows you to select from a variety of built-in speaker and microphone types, and it’s also possible to import WAV-format speaker impulse responses with the GT-1000 IR Loader software. USB can also be used to edit and organize sounds with the desktop version of the BOSS Tone Studio editor for Mac and Windows.
