Boss has introduced the GT-100, a new multi-FX with next-generation amp modeling

Boss GT-100

Driven by a powerful new BOSS DSP engine, the GT-100 is the most advanced GT ever, loaded with newly developed, ultra-responsive COSM® amps, updated effects with enhanced real-time control options, dual displays for easy sound programming, and more.

BOSS has completely remodeled all of the COSM amps in the GT-100, distilling decades of sound research to create the best-sounding guitar processor the company has produced to date. Reaching far beyond conventional vintage amp modeling, the GT-100 includes a host of all-new amps that deliver amazingly transparent clean tones to ultra-high gain modern sounds and everything in between.

GT-100 features

  • Advanced COSM amps that model vintage amp tones and delivers never-before-heard tones.
  • Dual-LCD for simple and intuitive operation with direct access to every parameter.
  • Improved EZ Tone TONE feature with graphical TONE GRID for constructing new patches; AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE lets you easily create original amps and overdrive/distortion by customizing their behavior.
  • Newly developed ACCEL pedal for simultaneous control of multiple parameters.

The GT-100 will be available in February 2012.

    The BOSS GT-100 is an excellent guitar effects processor, but I prefer the BOSS GT-10 because it has all of the effect buttons (Compressor, Preamps, EQ, FX1, FX2, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, etc.) right on the front of the unit so I can instantly see what effects are on/off, and I can instantly select the effect I want to edit. I also prefer having the CTRL1 and CTRL2 pedals on the BOSS GT-10 vs. the Loop and Accel pedals on the BOSS GT-100. Most of the effects (including the Graphic and Parametric EQ’s) appear to be the same in the BOSS GT-100 as in the BOSS GT-10 as well; I was hoping for a 16/32/64/128-band Graphic EQ and a Parametric EQ that would allow me to adjust at least 20 or more individual frequencies (at 100Hz increments; rather than skipping every 1000Hz or so). The BOSS GT-100 does not have all of the same amp types and so if a person transfers BOSS GT-10 patches into the BOSS GT-100 the patches will not sound the same; I highly recommend that Manufacturers who make guitar effect processors include all of the same effects (and parameters) in the new/future guitar effect processors as the older units had; By doing so awesome guitar sounds (called patches) will be able to be transferred onto the new units and years from now there will be thousands of awesome sounding patches that can be used in old and new guitar effect processors. It always comes down to a person wanting great sounds (called patches); And if a Manufacturer does not include all of the same effects (and parameters) as the older units, then all the awesome guitar sounds (called patches) become useless in the newer guitar effects processors; and the process of making great sounding patches starts all over again! So it is very important that guitar effect processor Manufacturers include all of the same effect (and parameters) from the older units into the newer units and make sure when the patches are transferred they sound 100% (not 99%) the same!
