INDUSTRY-LEADING TONE WITH BREAKTHROUGH BOSS TECHNOLOGY

Delivering unmatched sound quality and musical expression, the GT-1000 ushers in a new era of performance in amp/effects processors. This premium tone machine debuts the groundbreaking AIRD (Augmented Impulse Response Dynamics) technology, realized with 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 evolve through ongoing firmware development, with expanding features like new amps and effects, bass support, and other functionality enhancements requested by users.

Based on BOSSís acclaimed Tube Logic approach, the comprehensive AIRD system in the GT-1000 brings unparalleled musical response and flexibility to a digital guitar processor. AIRD amplifiers live and breathe like real tube amps, providing inspiring feel and authentic tonal dynamics that were previously unattainable in a digital processor. Sophisticated AIRD Output Select functionality takes things even further, letting you achieve consistently great sound with any setup, from standard guitar amps to full-range playback systems.

The GT-1000 also features a huge range of cutting-edge BOSS effects, with numerous routing options and extensive real-time control at your command. And with the convenience of built-in Bluetoothģ, you can adjust sounds, configure control assignments, and organize patches wirelessly from your mobile device using the BOSS Tone Studio app. Packing immense power in a streamlined pro design, the GT-1000 is a game changer that brings new levels of creative expression to all guitarists and bassists.

  • Designed for Unparalleled Sound Quality

    The GT-1000 is BOSSís most advanced amp/effects processor to date, built for no-compromise audio performance. To start, itís the first-ever guitar multi-effects unit with 32-bit AD/DA, 32-bit floating-point processing, and 96 kHz sampling rate throughout. Thereís an all-new DSP engine as well, specially designed for music applications and featuring over three times the power of previous generations.

    This immense processing muscle unlocks far greater sonic detail than ever before possible, making it quick and easy to get the sounds youíre after without endless parameter tweaks and microscopic EQ adjustments. If youíve shied away from other amp/effects processors because theyíre hard to dial in and missing that ďreal dealĒ vibe, the GT-1000 is sure to change your mind.

  • AIRD: A Revolution in Digital Amp Processing

    At its core, the GT-1000 harnesses BOSSís breakthrough AIRD technology for previously unattained musical power. Based on the comprehensive Tube Logic concept behind the renowned 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 love are interactive, highly expressive musical instruments that are far more than the sum of their individual components. The Tube Logic design philosophy fully realizes this interactive experience, and itís been hugely successful in the self-contained guitar amps where itís been employed. However, bringing this approach to a guitar processor like the GT-1000 introduces many challenges, because players will use it with a variety of external amplification systems that add their own characteristics to the sound. BOSS developed AIRD to address these challenges, employing sophisticated techniques to ensure that the GT-1000ís groundbreaking musical response can be consistently experienced with any rig.

  • Highly Musical Guitar Amplifiers, Crafted with AIRD

    The GT-1000 is loaded with immensely expressive guitar amplifiers, all meticulously crafted with AIRD. In contrast to traditional modeling methods, AIRD reproduces the complex internal component interactions of tube amps in every way, from guitar input to speaker output and everything in-between. The result is a complete interactive system thatís a living, breathing instrument, just like your favorite high-end tube amp.

    A key focus of AIRD is the reactive amp/speaker relationship, which is essential to the dynamic feel and musical responsiveness of tube amplifiers. This vital relationship is fully brought to life with the GT-1000ís amps, producing guitar tones that are alive with punch, presence, and depth. Thanks to AIRD, your sound always feels great under your fingers and ďsits in the mixĒ properly, delivering a truly organic musical experience thatís never been available from a digital guitar processor until now.

    The GT-1000 features a wide range of BOSS original amplifiers suitable for all guitar styles, from super-clean to ultra-heavy. A number of amp types employ Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology for dynamic, nuanced tone that reaches beyond the capabilities of analog designs. Classic tube amps throughout history are included as well, from coveted vintage combos to modern high-gain heads. Two amps can be used at once in a single patch, so youíre able to switch between two sounds, blend amps for complex tones, or achieve big, expansive sound in stereo setups.

  • Optimized Performance for Every Playing Application

    AIRD enables the GT-1000 to smoothly flow into any creative setup, allowing you to enjoy great tone and response with minimal adjustments. By choosing from a large selection of AIRD Output Select types, you can perfectly tailor the GT-1000 for any destination, whether itís 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 variety of amps, plus two user locations for loading additional selections from the GT-1000 AIRD Output Select Library software.

    AIRD is fully integrated into the GT-1000ís amplifiers at every level, so youíll always experience their authentic sound and interactive response with any setup. And with the ability to apply different AIRD Output Select settings to the main and sub outputs, you can optimize 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 include independent ground lift functions, making it easy to tackle any hum issues that might be introduced with external devices.

  • Extraordinary Effects

    As youíd expect from a flagship BOSS processor, the GT-1000 is loaded with all types of effects, from overdrives and distortions to specialty effects like Slicer, Slow Gear, and a host of others. Many selections harness BOSSís MDP tech, which intelligently adapts to your dynamics and playing register to achieve the perfect sound. Advanced algorithms from the renowned DD-500 Digital Delay, MD-500 Modulation, and RV-500 Reverb pedals are included too, along with sophisticated Acoustic Resonance processing inherited from the AD-10 pedal for acoustic/electric guitar.

    Amps and effects can be configured with various series and parallel routing options, and signal paths can be divided and mixed at multiple points. Patch switching is ultra-fast thanks to the GT-1000ís speedy DSP, and delay carryover is also possible. There are two effects loops as well, allowing you to connect your favorite external effects and preamps.

  • The New Bass Multi-Effects Flagship

    BOSSís powerful GT-10B was a longtime favorite of creative bassists, providing top-flight amps, effects, and DI capabilities in one convenient floorboard. Now, the GT-1000 takes bass processing to new heights with next-generation sound quality, ultra-flexible performance features, and an even more compact size. Three AIRD bass preamps are provided for shaping your core tone, while eight different overdrive/distortion effects are available for additional color and gain. Thereís an MDP bass compressor as well, plus chorus, flanger, touch wah, and many other effect types specially tuned for bass.

  • Streamlined Design, Ready to Travel

    In todayís music world, players need to travel as light as possible, and BOSS designed the GT-1000 for maximum control in a minimum amount of space. In comparison to other processors in its class, it offers a compact, streamlined design thatís easy to carry and set up. The metal chassis is both strong and light, and features an array of freely assignable footswitches and an integrated expression pedal. Newly developed specifically for the GT-1000, the low-profile footswitches reduce size and weight while maintaining the rugged durability that all BOSS gear is famous for.

  • Intuitive Interface

    With the GT-1000ís large display and six switching knobs, the process of creating and adjusting sounds is smooth and efficient. Four different Play screen layouts provide alternate viewing options for various patch functions, and you can customize the knobs for quick access to specific parameters. While editing, the signal chain is clearly displayed, and itís simple to select effects blocks, adjust parameters, and change the order. The available parameters for selected effects can be displayed in layers, letting you see everything at once on screen.

    An innovative new workflow feature in the GT-1000 is the ability to save any effect as a ďStompbox.Ē Parameter adjustments to a Stompbox are reflected in all patches where itís used, basically mimicking the way youíd use physical pedals. This is ideal for effects where you use the same settings most of the time, but just need to make small adjustments occasionally. Now, you can make those changes quickly across multiple patches, eliminating the hassle of tweaking and saving each patch separately.

  • Intensive Performance Control

    With its ten footswitches and expression pedal with toe switch, the GT-1000 gives you comprehensive creative control on stage and in the studio. And if youíre a power user, thereís support for additional control via 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 reassign the switches to control nearly any function. Using the GT-1000ís switching knobs and powerful Assign Matrix, control assignments are quick and intuitive. Itís also possible to assign different colors to the status LEDs above the switches, and easily view the current switch assignments with a Play screen option.

  • Manual and Pedalboard Modes for a Stompbox-Style Experience

    While all of the GT-1000ís footswitches are freely assignable per patch, there might 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 all-new Pedalboard mode takes an even more direct approach for players wanting a traditional stomp experience, providing a dynamic effects layout thatís outside the normal patch structure and always ready to go when needed. Whatís more, all footswitch modes now provide top-level access to function assignment and parameter control for assigned effects, letting you make tweaks on the fly with no deep menu diving.

  • USB Audio/MIDI and Wireless Editing via Bluetooth

    The GT-1000ís well-organized panel interface is a breeze to navigate, but things get even easier with your smartphone or tablet. The GT-1000 is equipped with onboard Bluetoothóa first for a pro-level amp/effects processoróallowing you to wirelessly manage sounds from the dedicated BOSS Tone Studio app for iOS and Android. Whether at home, in rehearsal, or on stage, you can comfortably tweak the GT-1000 from your device without having to bend over and edit via the hardware. Itís even possible to record a riff with the GT-1000ís built-in looper, and then roam the venue and adjust tones from the audience position!

    The GT-1000 includes a USB audio/MIDI interface as well, with multi-channel audio operation for flexible computer recording and efficient re-amping. A Recording mode allows you to choose from a variety of built-in speaker and microphone types, and itís 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.
