BOSS just introduced the GT-1000CORE, a new multi-effects pedal based on the flagship GT-1000 Guitar Effects Processor. GT-1000CORE houses the complete internal sound processing of the GT-1000 in a single stompbox and a range of premium BOSS amp and effects. Designed for both guitar and bass, GT-1000CORE fits into any pedalboard setup and works well as an all-in-one processor for playing live and in the studio.
GT-1000CORE lets players travel light and tackle any professional playing situation with no additional pedals. A single patch provides access to 24 simultaneous effects, including two amps at once. And with 250 user patches available, there’s ample room to store sound creations for every type of gig. The impressive DSP engine delivers on-demand power for all effects blocks, so there are no frustrating processing limitations while creating sounds.
In addition to standalone operation, GT-1000CORE brings next-level creative versatility to any pedalboard. Three onboard switches can be configured for a variety of functions, and users can easily integrate with other stomps via mono or stereo I/O. Dual send/return jacks are also available, supporting external effects, four-cable method, or separate feeds to a PA or recorder. Deeper control is possible with external foot switches and expression pedals, and users can remotely switch amp channels as well. MIDI I/O is provided on space-saving TRS jacks for seamless integration with other MIDI devices.
For the home, it functions as a multichannel USB audio/MIDI interface for flexible DAW production and efficient re-amping. Recording mode provides a variety of built-in speaker and microphone types to choose from, and it’s also possible to import 16 WAV-format speaker impulse responses with the GT-1000 IR Loader software. The onboard looper is a great tool for practice, building sounds and developing ideas. And players can craft sounds on a Mac or Windows computer using the BOSS Tone Studio editor.
The BOSS GT-1000CORE is $699.99.
