BOSS announces GP-10, GT-001, VE-2 & GT-100 version 2.0 update

BOSS has announced the GP-10 and GT-001 guitar processors, the VE-2 vocal harmonist, and a version 2.0 update of the GT-100 amp effects processor.

BOSS GP-10

GP-10: Guitar Processor

The new GP-10 puts a universe of amazing tones and tunings at your command, all in one compact processor that’s affordable and easy to use. With a Roland GK-compatible pickup on your guitar, the GP-10 lets you transform your sound into numerous classic electric and acoustic guitar types, basses, and even analog-modeled synths, including the legendary Roland GR-300. Not stopping there, you have access to instant altered tunings, including popular open tunings, 12-string tones, and “down” tunings that are essential for today’s ultra-heavy rock styles.

The versatile GP-10 also functions as a full-featured multi-effects processor for both GK and normal pickups, giving you a huge selection of COSM® amps and effects for live playing and studio recording. In addition, USB connectivity lets you capture GP-10 tones directly into your DAW, and you can even play computer-based soft synths from your axe with the GP-10’s guitar-to-MIDI convertor!

GT-001: Guitar Effects Processor

The GT-001 packs the acclaimed amps and effects of the flagship GT-100 Version 2.0 in a stylish desktop processor for your home studio or mobile rig. Its small size fits easily into any workspace, while the intuitive interface makes it simple to dial up world-class tones for recording and practice.

BOSS GT-001

In addition to the guitar input, an XLR mic input is included for capturing vocals or acoustic instruments, and the built-in USB audio/MIDI interface provides a direct connection for creating music with your favorite DAW.

Like the GT-100, the GT-001 offers powerful sound creation possibilities with dual amps and effects chains and flexible routing options. On top of that, a newly developed guitar-to-MIDI function lets you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer programs from a normal guitar input—no special pickup required! Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO software provides a cool graphical interface for tweaking tones from your computer, plus access to BOSS TONE CENTRAL for free studio-ready patches and much more.

BOSS VE-2

VE-2: Vocal Harmonist

Combining sophisticated sound with simple operation, the VE-2 Vocal Harmonist delivers a complete effects solution for all singers, particularly those that perform with guitar. This portable, battery-powered stompbox has everything you need to create polished, studio-quality sounds everywhere you sing, from concert stages and street performances to practicing and having fun at home.

The VE-2 magically creates beautiful harmonized vocals that follow your singing, with pitch that automatically tracks the chords played on a connected guitar, a preset key, or a combination of the two. Using one of these three operation modes, it’s easy to create perfect real-time harmonies in any key, even if you have no experience with gear or music theory.

In addition to harmony, the VE-2 provides essential effects to enhance your voice, such as high-quality reverb/delay and an enhancer with real-time pitch correction. Also included is a USB audio function that allows you to connect to your computer and easily capture impressive VE-2 vocal sounds for music recordings, social media videos, and more.

GT-100: Amp Effects Processor

With the new GT-100 Version 2.0 update, BOSS’ flagship multi-effects processor is now even more powerful than before, adding a host of great new features to its already formidable arsenal.

BOSS GT-100

Two new amp types are included, along with cutting-edge MDP effects, an acoustic guitar simulator, and an improved rotary effect. A convenient Guitar-to-MIDI function is on board as well, letting you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer software using your normal guitar.

The GT-100’s USB audio capabilities have been expanded too, providing greater flexibility for re-amping applications. And with the BOSS TONE STUDIO software, you can now edit GT-100 patches from a friendly graphical interface on your computer.

Prime Loops launches Stevan Lloyd Vocal Sessions

Prime Loops Stevan LLoyd

Prime Loops has announced Stevan Lloyd Vocal Sessions, a new vocal sample library.

In all the excitement of producing your next EDM or Pop smash, vocals can often get overlooked. It’s only when you take a step back from tinkering with those rumbling basslines and smooth beats that you realise there’s nothing left in the budget for an accomplished vocalist. You can either autotune yourself singing in the shower (it’s cheaper than a vocal booth, right?) or invest in a professionally mastered set of highly original vocal samples from the finest talent on the scene, for a fraction of the cost of hiring them in person. So we’ve borrowed one of the brightest young voices on the London scene from AR Vocal Agency in the form of vocal powerhouse Stevan Lloyd.

Crooning in at 350MB, Stevan Lloyd: Vocal Sessions will ply your productions with over 140 individual samples, each finished at a pristine 24-bit sample rate – that’s some seriously High Definition sound quality right there. Available in multiple formats to run with any of your favourite software samplers, this brand new EDM vocal library delivers 4 folders of Adlibs, Choruses, Hooks and Verses with a sub folder of Backing Vocals in each. From the smoothest adlibs to strongest, most soulful choruses to infectiously catchy hooks and utterly entrancing verses, you can merge any of these vocal samples with your mix by simply dragging and dropping them from the download folder into your DAW and they’ll sync automatically to match the key and tempo of your mix. You can even adapt the tempo by clicking the end of the sample in your mix and adjusting its length – drawing it out or squeezing it down and that insanely clean sound clarity will remain intact.

The sample pack costs £27.95 GBP.
