The BOSS GT-001 Table Top Guitar FX Processor's intuitive interface design makes it simple to pull up pro-quality tones for practice and recording, and its size allows it to easily fit into any workspace.

In  addition, the new Guitar-to-MIDI function lets you enjoy Guitar Friend Jam and other computer programs just using a regular guitar input, with no special pickup required!

BOSS' Tone Studio software is available as a free download, providing a cool graphic user interface for tweaking tones from your computer, plus access to BOSS' Tone Central for free studio-ready patches and much more.

    Comments about Boss GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor:

    I'm not always able to fire up my favorite amp in the studio especially when inspiration strikes late at night. The GT-001 allows me to get the great tones I crave without much effort finding them. Ease of use and quality sound make this a great piece of gear to add to the home recording environment.

            Comments about Boss GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor:

            I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music in Cherry Hill, NJ. My personal opinion about this device is that it is a great product for anyone with a professional or home recording studio. we all know that the preset sounds for guitar in our recording software can be a little bit dicey. the gt-001 provides much more quality for guitar presets. it is extremely easy to customize any preset due to its accessibility right at your fingertips at table level. I would not recommend this product to a gigging musicians whose hands are always on their guitar while performing. once again roland has come out with a reliable and compatible product that anyone would be happy with.

              Comments about Boss GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor:

              The choice of effects and amp models that come in this processor is great for all musical styles. If you play acoustic or electric guitar, no problem it will work great with both. For your own home studio this Boss effects processor will make a great addition. For $299.00 you do get a lot of effects. Much better than buying all these effects individually.

                      This thing has got all kinds of sounds, even some that their flagship pedal board doesn't have. How they made it so cheap, I'll never know, but you can get this thing and use it instead of an amp. I think that's the way things are going, and soon you won't need a guitar tech, 'cause all your souds will be stored in your amp, and you'll just plug usb into the board.

                          Finally, a multi fx/amp processor that takes up no more space than your mouse pad (if you still use those).

                          BOSS' COSM Amp modeling and classic effects give you a wide variety of tonal options ranging a multitude of genres. A downloadable program that works via the USB port on the GT-001 unlocks more doors to tone shaping and patch creation.

                          USB out, XLR in, along with a stereo 1/4in output gives you a plethora of routing configurations to fit any rig or DAW.

                                Awesome portable replacement for a recording interface at a great price. Plug in a mic and a guitar and you're ready to jam. Use it in conjunction with your recording setup via the stereo 1/4" outs. The guitar sims are very cool, directly taken from their stomp model GT-100. Now check this out folks.. it has a built-in guitar to MIDI without the need for an external pickup!!!!

                                      The trend to software simulation of effects is great. You no longer have to have dresser drawers full of pedals to get the specific sound you need. All that convenience is nice, but let's be honest, sometimes we just want to twiddle some knobs until it sound right. The keyboard and mouse can get kind of irritating. This is the hybrid you've been looking for.

                                      It's a piece of hardware that has all the great Boss sounds found in software.
