Designing the follow on from the GT-10 must have been an unenviable task but Roland has done it with the introduction of the Boss GT-100. Looking meaner than ever, this seriously robust unit has had more than just a facelift, with original features being improved upon or added to, along with some extras thrown in for good measure.
The Boss GT-100 Processors amp modelling has been enhanced to offer vintage amps and new COSM tones. The processor now features dual LCD screens and the popular EZ TONE has been given two new features in the form of AMP CUSTOMISE and OD/DS CUSTOMISE. The Boss GT-100 Amp Effects Processor encompasses everything you could need in an effects board, from classic to futuristic sounds, available in one place.
Next Generation COSM Processor
Harnessing its new expression and sonic possibilities the Boss GT100 Amp Effects Processor features the next generation of COSM processor. Now capable of recreating vintage amps, this engine, along with the new AMP CUSTOMISE function, lets you take classic amps and alter them into something new and unique, or just stick with them as they are for old school vibe.
Enhanced Interface, TONE GRID & the ACCEL Pedal
Doubling up on the GT10, the Boss GT100 has an interface with two LCD screens and eight knobs, giving instant access to everything you need to sculpt your sound without having to trawl through menus.
With the Boss GT-100 Effects Processors new graphical TONE GRID function you can get really deep with tone creation and customisation spanning across all the units patches, amps and overdrive/distortions.
The new ACCEL pedal lets you get really creative by enabling control of multiple parameters at once, as well as control of time-variant effects, in real time.
A/B Channel Divide Function
With it new A/B Channel Divide function the Boss GT-100 Amp Effects Unit allows you to assign different amps and effects to each channel. Further more the signal can be divided by dynamics and frequency as each channel drives its own settings. You can really sculpt your tone by assigning different tones to different pitches to really bolster your sound.
