Jerald's review"Great Desktop workstation!!"

Boss GT-001
I picked this up dirt cheap! IDK why? It has ALOT of features and uses! Guitar, vocals, FX processor! Great Amps and dynamic quality of real tube amps! Specs=
BOSS GT-001 Guitar Amp/Effects Processor and USB Audio Interface Features:

-Process your voice or acoustic guitar too, with specially-designed patches for vocals and acoustics
-Start exploring right away with 200 built-in patches, with 200 user slots to store your own creations

-Connect your own expression pedal or footswitches for even more control over your sound
-Four knobs give you fast access to your patch's parameters
-External audio input lets you connect your music player, drum machine, etc.

I have a Zoom G3 and in comparison the Zoom has higher fidelity but slightly less dynamics on the amp tones. May be the Zoom's 32 bit processing vs the BOSS's 24 bit? It has all the amps of the $500 floor unit too! The Marshall Plexi "Brown Sound" is the best I've ever heard! EVH true tone there. Great tracking on the Gtr to MIDI coversion too. Lots of EQ's on this and great FX. Large FX chain too of everything most want/need. Best acoustic sim I have ever heard! Worth way more than the $300 price IMO.

Boss GT-001
it's the Boss, and found everything that made the success of the series GTxxx with superb amp emulations "raw" that can fully edit, it's TOP!

The Boss ASIO driver (dual channel) is still stable with a zero latency that simplifies settings and configurations.

The new Boss Tone Studio software that manages both the patch editor, bookstore and sharing patch on the Net with video and explanation and very well done.

In addition, there is always the GT-001FxFloorBoard Freeware 'being Dev ...


Setup is simple and easy, all in one Desktop size and small in size which makes it fast in use with its display and buttons and different connections Guitar / Mic.

I use a lot the Boss software
The manual is simple, but I use that for specific details


I use it with several guitars in MIC / XLR and it sounds!

In standard, it comes with 200/200 presets like it or not (lots of saturation), but the advantage is that if you want to work and edit multiple settings, there is plenty to do. ..

Amp emulation for Jazz, Blues and Crunch sound is wonderful for distortion found all sorts is even too!


in short, I am very pleased with this recent purchase that matches my expectations 'sound Boss' compared to other manufacturer that sound more "far" sounds original amps I'm looking

Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Effective and practical"

Boss GT-001
All details are on the website of the brand.


Clearly oriented nomadic and / or studio this little box are filled role perfectly. There branch guitars (acoustic, electric), bass or microphone and it sounds! A nearly 300 euros at the end, he did not miss it does not work ... ;-)
Yes but it works well and is ergonomic. An alternative "Desktop" Line6 Pod HD to the famous Desktop. This latter, noise level remains in the race by side against ergonomics, it is completely outdated. The Boss is easier to use. More importantly, the software offers is truly superior. For make no mistake. With this type of stuff, the price is included in computer services. And on this level, the Boss Tone Studio application is very well done. It allows to search in detail everything that is configurable in the GT-001 (preferences, effects, patches, USB, and so on) and it offers a whole range of more patches or concocted by Boss and house experts or by some célébrissimes guitarists. Everything is presented in a pleasant and responsive interface. A lovely "free service" (we pay by purchasing the camera ;-).
I tested a few patches (some are pre-listenable in the software) is convincing.
Two more on the GT-001 are: the possibility of re-amping with your Daw via USB, it works well (Logic on Mac) and the possibility of midify (monaural) the signal from your guitar again it works pretty well (we dream of polyphony!).


Having a very good knowledge of animals like that, Boss is in the high average of what can digital. The latest algorithms house there, it is the same as the GT-100. It has pretty good press and this is in my opinion deserved. The clean rather neutral devastating distortion through all the classic effects processor or improbable it can do anything. With more or less success ... rather than less :-)
I've only used it for the moment, that plugged into the console and it sounds very good. Note, and this is a good point, a gain control input is available. This allows to adapt the different instruments can be connected to them and optimize levels throughout the supply chain, the output is controllable from a knob on the unit.
The quality of capturing the audio via USB provides excellent dynamics here also Boss offers to adjust the levels of the USB flow and thus to optimize the capture (44.1 kHz/24-bit).


Small in size ... HUGE by the sounds and possibilities. I find it really convenient and efficient processor. Well, this is Boss, they know a little music anyway ;-) To tell a little trouble: it seems a bit expensive. It should fall euros fifty shortly, they all do it. In a year in Cygnus, around 180-200 euros it will be a big deal.
Summary: Multi-convincing effects as much by its sound performances by its ergonomics and it is important to emphasize that by offering software via Boss Tone Studio. Good stuff!
