Flagship GT power on your desktop.

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.

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.

    Comments about Boss GT-001 Guitar Effects Processor:

    I am using the GT001 for home recording and so far am extremely pleased with it. It is very compact and so can go either on a desk surface or the floor. I do not use this for playing out, but it seems to be built like a truck; for gigging, the only problem I would anticipate is its light weight. Unlike many very small devices that tend to have a lot of "secret codes" to remember in their user interfaces, this one is very intuitive and easy to use. I replaced a Line6 POD X3 with this (because of reliability issues and the clunky Line6 user interface), and find the Boss unit much easier to dial in. For those who like a printed manual, the one supplied is small but pretty good, and it's easy to find what you want. The GT001 controls are thoughtfully designed, and the display is quite useful despite being rather small. The presets are nicely done, although (as has been mentioned here) they tend to be heavy on the distortion. Happily, this is easy to change. The ability to change details of each effect as well as their order in the signal chain is good, and nicely implemented in the user interface. For recording, the ability to grab both the clean and effected signals is a big plus. In all, an excellent piece of gear at a very reasonable price. In case it's not clear from the sales page and from what others have written, this unit is the GT100 in a (much) smaller package, for much less money. If you're intending to use it for recording, this is a clear choice and a real bargain. If you are going straight from this unit to an audio interface or computer, the interface is USB only (no Firewire or Thunderbolt), but works just fine.

      This is a metal heads dream. The younger musician schooled in simple programming will have tons of choices. Old-timers like me lack the programming skills and patience.

        Comments about Boss GT-001 Guitar Effects Processor:

        I have many nice amplifier (Mesa Mark V, Carr Slant 6, Dr Z Maz 38) but get tired of using a direct box or trying to mic everything for recording. This box records very well. You can get the effected signal and a clean signal at the same time to 2 different channel in your DAW. This is great for using other software amplifiers. Very Happy with this unit.
