The BOSS GT-1000CORE manages to pack the full processing power of BOSS’s flagship GT-1000 floor processor into a compact throw-and-go gigging format. Inside awaits a bevy of quality amp, cab, and effects models for your stage and studio needs. The GT-1000CORE has all your bases covered, from industry workhorses to exotic boutique builds and high-concept stereo amp/FX fusions that are perfect for building atmosphere. Its 32-bit/96kHz processing supplies faithful modeling and a familiar feel that will have the guitar and bass player in you wondering where the amp is. Factor in 24 simultaneous assignable FX blocks, AIRD-driven guitar and bass preamps, stereo inputs for seamless pedalboard integration, two FX loops for running four-cable amp method, and USB direct out for fuss-free recording, and the BOSS GT-1000CORE earns its place among the most distinguished mini amp and FX processors.
Don’t let the GT-1000CORE’s size fool you. This pint-sized powerhouse boasts 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit/96kHz internal processing, Roland’s acclaimed Tube Logic technology, Augmented Impulse Response Dynamics (AIRD) technology, and BOSS’s Multi-Dimensional Processing. That’s a lot of firepower driving the tone and feel of each and every amplifier, cabinet impulse response, and effects model onboard. The GT-1000CORE sounds and feels like the real thing — because it is.
Sized for the stage, spec’d for the studio
Studio-grade sounds and pro-level I/O defy the GT-1000CORE’s easy-gigging form factor. Take it from guitar and bass players at Sweetwater: This mini is a serious performance platform, whether you find yourself creating full sets of great tones for the stage or seeking record-ready inspiration in the GT-1000CORE’s choice modeling and FX.
Computer-based recording and editing
Like the GT-1000 before it, the BOSS GT-1000CORE has earned quite a name around Sweetwater for being as comfortable in the studio as it is in the live environment. This is due in large part to its USB connectivity. Connect the GT-1000CORE to your computer with a single USB cable, and you open up a world of direct recording and deep tonal editing that unleashes the unit’s full potential. As a high-quality audio interface, you’re able to lay down your best tones quickly and effortlessly using the GT-1000CORE.
Powerful rig control
With its ease of use, you’ll be astounded how much control the GT-1000CORE gives you over your entire rig. Front-load your stage amp and bask in its faithfully modeled BOSS stomp effects. Or, take advantage of its powerful modeling and run the GT-1000CORE straight into a PA as you monitor via headphones or stage wedge. The unit’s dual effects loops allow you to continue getting the most from your favorite effects pedals and amps. The GT-1000CORE’s expression ports allow you to manipulate amp channels and tempos hands-free. There’s even MIDI I/O onboard to support more sophisticated setups.
Not just for guitar
The GT-1000CORE isn’t just for guitar. Bassists will have no trouble making the GT-1000CORE the centerpiece of their rig. Among its many bass-centric features are a trio of AIRD preamps, with Natural Bass, X-Drive Bass, and SVT Bass, which give you the ability to shape the sound to your preferred genres. Also onboard are 16 bass-specific effects, including the MDP compressor to keep things nice and even, bass overdrive and distortions for gritting up your tone, a bass touch wah, a bass flanger, and more.
