Roland's Micro Cube amps have been top-sellers worldwide for nearly 10 years, and the Micro Cube GX guitar amplifier combo is as awesome as you’d expect it to be. Not only is it built to take an absolute battering, with reinforced bracing on each corner, and metal mesh protecting the speaker, the GX boasts a tonal arsenal that is truly staggering for such a small combo. With a selection of Roland’s incredible COSM amp model and effects to choose from, an internal memory function that allows you to save settings for later recall, the ability to connect to Roland’s i-Cube Link and Cube Jam app, this is so much more than a mere practise amp – it is a little box of mind-blowing delights.
Roland’s COSM Technology
The heart of the Micro Cube GX lies in the custom designed 5-inch speaker, but the brain is most definitely within the dazzling array of controls that are powered by Roland’s outstanding COSM technology. Along the top of the GX there are eight amp types to choose from, including: Acoustic Guitar, JC Clean, Black Panel, Brit Combo, Classic Stack, R-Fier Stack, Extreme, Mic – each one offering closely designed amp models that represent classic and modern favourites for quick and efficient tone shaping.
Beneath the Amp Type section are the Gain, Volume, and Tone controls, which can be used to manipulate the dynamic elements of your tone – alongside the other amp features. For example, by selecting the R-Fier Stack amp model, you are instantly given a gritty sounding high-gain output. Combine that with an increase in Gain, Volume, and throw up the Master Volume, and you’re guaranteed to get the attention of your neighbours. Five different effects are on-hand to meet your needs with Tremolo, Delay, Reverb and Spring Reverb on offer for quick and easy control. Adjust the effect amount is done by simply turning the pot to your desired level – simple!
Roland’s i-Cube Link Interface and Cube Jam App
The Roland Micro Cube GX comes with a built in i-Cube link interface, which allows you to connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with your Micro Cube GX – using the supplied cable. Whether you’re at home or on the road, you can easily plug in and play along to your favourite tracks. Not only that, but you can rapidly record into your DAW of choice for efficient recording.
The Roland Cube Jam app allows you to jam, record, and develop your playing skills, using practise tracks with speed/pitch adjustment to slow down fast licks and riffs, allowing you to build up your chops at your own pace. You can remove solos and vocals from existing tracks to make it easier to identity guitar riffs, and play in different keys.
Built-In Memory Function and Chromatic Tuner
The Roland MicroCube GX is equipped with an internal memory that allows you to save your favourite sounds and settings, whilst enabling you to switch between your saved settings and current tones. This is brilliant for those times when you’ve created a beautiful lead tone on the road, and you want to store it for recording with later on. The final slice of brilliance that Roland have squeezed into this awesome amp is arguably the most important tool for every guitarist, a chromatic tuner!
