    Two tons of tone in a rack.

    The Boss GT-Pro Effects Processor is an incredibly powerful rack processor. It boasts dual COSM processor effect engines and an I/O section that includes XLR outs, three sets of send/returns, and a USB port for data exchange and audio flow. Its dual COSM amp-modeling engine allows you to construct towering tones by combining any two of the 46 amp models--then layer, switch, or pan between them as you play. Amp channels and effects can even be controlled according to how hard you play. The Solo switch gives you instant access to a companion lead tone.

    As the top of GT line, the GT-Pro provides 44 effects categories with 200 preset- and
    140 user-patch locations. Choose from compressors, overdrives, delays, reverbs, choruses, EQs, wahs, and dozens of other BOSS-quality effects--including a sitar and acoustic guitar emulator. The GT-Pro also has ultraflexible effects routing. Internally, the 13 effects blocks can be configured in any order you desire; externally, a trio of stereo effects loops plus an array of assignable outputs enable the most flexible signal-routing configurations.

    Features
    • Dual COSM amp section with Solo Mode for instant tone boost
    • 3 stereo effect loops
    • Huge array of outputs, including digital
    • Built-in USB-audio interface

    All the effects you'll ever need! Order today with the total assurance of our dual guarantees!

    I have had the BOSS GT-Pro for just over a year now. I liked the amp modeling initially, but eventually used a Line6 amp for the amp models and basically just use the GT-pro as the most massive pedal board money could buy. I use delay A LOT, and while the price tag is pretty large for this device, i actually save money because i would currently need about 30 delay pedals all with different settings for my current set-up. This processor is also really great for experimenting especially since you have more options for each pedal on this, then you would if you bought the model the effects are based on. As for quality?, well i bought a rackmounted device for the fact that the pedal type FX processors get dirty, full of dust, hair,etc. That usually doesn't happen to rack gear. Sadly though, the reverb DSP chip went bad in my unit, which isn't really a problem for me since the reverb was probably the Gt-pro's only less then stellar feature- as i don't take any pedal reverb seriously.. I highly recommend this device for the user who needs lots of pedals, without the pedal board. I am personally a very picky artist, and a total tone snob, sometimes only boss pedals will do the trick, and this device has them all!.. Processors in general: I like the multi FX devices, but at the same time hate them. I think Boss really should have just stuck with making a great pedal based processor. With how much the modeling takes up of the units DPS resources, you could have probably doubled the amount of pedals per patch.The Boss GT-pro is the core of my effects pedal sounds, but I'm left with other devices, or real amps for the actual initial tone. If you have a good amp, or modeling device, try out the boss Gt-pro before spending loads on individual pedals!

    I was disappointed so I returned it. I have never been very impressed with amp modeling and this was no different, it had some cool sounds but for the most part, they sounded too much the same. None of the distortion models were any good. Most of the effects were fine, and there were a few really cool ones like the synthesizer and the defretter, but the pitch shifting was absolutely the worst I have ever heard. Boss's own pitch shift pedal is much better. (I should add that the distortion in the unit is bad too, again Boss' pedals are much better for some reason?!?!) The manual says that you can play chords with the normal pitch shifter, but you can't, and you can't even play single notes. The shifted note is so bad that it sounds like a math flunkie wrote the code that calculates the shifted frequency. Several other effects required you to play single notes and they were fine. I am sticking with my G major, it could be better, but all in all at half the price and all the standard effects that work well (even pitch shifting - though you can't play chords with it) it is a much better addition to my already cool sounding amp and Boss OS-2 distortion pedal. Happy hunting.

    No Vista 64 support

    By Mel-KK06s

    from Canada

    Good unit with SS power amps (great with my JC-120) but watch out for 2 issues. One: it is anything but transparent even with the amp models bypassed so not a good choice with a tube preamp if you want to maintain that tone (not good with my Rivera S-120). And two: no Vista 64-bit drivers available which is lousy support in my estimation. (yup! My new computer is Vista 64 ;-)

My new computer is Vista 64 and I wanted to used it with my S120 ;-) However pair it with something like a Rocktron Velocity stereo amp and you have a pretty decent and very flexible set-up.

    Great Flexibility

    I purchased this unit several months ago and did a few quick setups on some patches from my old Boss processor. The amp models are very good imo. And, though I've had it for awhile now, I've still barely scratched the surface of what it can do. I don't mike my amp anymore but go straight to the board via low z. How ever, the GT-Pro sounds great through any of my Peavey SS amps as well as my 65 Reissue Fender Twin and my Hughes and Kettner Switchblade. I've had several compliments lately regarding my tones. This is a great product.

    Great Studio Rig

    By Guitarboy1

    from Undisclosed

    I've had my GT-Pro for a couple of years and I love having a rackmount unit for the studio. It's so convenient rather than rolling amps in and out.I really dig a lot of the patches and it's pretty intuitive to use. I like most of the rhythm distortion patches. I don't really write a lot of my own because I'm a fairly straightforward guitarist. I use effects to enhance, not to identify my tone.I mostly use the rig to lay rhythm tracks in the studio. I doubt if I would ever use it live because I think it's a little complex and I'd rather play than spend time dancing on a foot console. I 5 basic Boss stomp boxes arranged on a board when I play live.One of the things that I'm not crazy about is that it's a hassle to switch to a mono mode. It records in stereo, so if I want the end signal to be mono, I have to mix it down in Pro Tools, which can be a little hit or miss.On the up side, I dig that the effects are pro quality, as good as most of the plug-ins in Pro Tools, so most of the time, I'm not afraid to print the effected signal directly to audio, depending on the context, rather than having to effect the signal with RTAS.All in all it's a great studio work horse.JM

    THE BEST guitar FX Processor

    By OttoMatick

    from Seattle

    There are only 2 cons to this unit, 1 no Vista 64 support for the PC based FX editor software(XP/Vista 32 bit only) and 2. You have to pay additional dollars to get a midi foot pedal. I like mostly the clean and mod FX. Nails the vox ac30 and fender twin for amp modeling. I run through a Valve king 100 head and into a Yamaha EMX5000-12 mixer board at the same time. The tube and distortion tones are very good and the mod FX(chorus, delay, vibrato, roto) and the rest are as good or better than like BOSS pedals. The single note synth FX's are absolutly awesum. Gotta love the WAVE synth. I highly recommend adding this to your cauldren of guitar magic.

    By trusoundstudios

    from Colorado Springs, CO

    I've had my GT Pro for about 2 years now and the only complaint I have is there are too many choices! I still prefer tube amps for streight out tone, but with a lot of tweeking, you can get fairly good tones. The Chorus, reverb, delay, flange, and phase are great. The distortions suck and so does the pitch shifter. I've never used the auto riff. I would recommend using a tube pre-amp before the input if you use hot pickups I'ts hard to set the input (digital clipping is horrible!) The coolest feature is being able to use two different pre-amp models and split them left and right or use them in mono. I use the same pre-amp settings, then set the speaker and mic simulator to simulate a stereo mic'd amp. I came up with a cool trick I use in the the studio. I put the pre-amp in dual mode, then use a different mic settings on each to get a stereo image of the cab (or you can use any cab sim you think sounds good). If you use two different pre-amps, you can get a rhythm guitar track that is really close to a doubled guitar track panned hard left and hard right. Don't expect to plug it in and get great tone right off the bat, it's taken me 2 years to finally get a respectable tone. One thing is for sure, it blows the POD all to HELL with better sounding FX and options.

    wonderful rack!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Ok I have played 13 years or so and in that time I have gone through loads of amps and rack units. Recently I have bought and returned A M-audio black box, several stand alone pedals, A roland cube 60, and a Marshal TSL100. All sounded great in the stores but at home I just couldnt get the tone I wanted, none of them seemed flexible enough I guess even spending 1500 on a TSL100 should have helped but it didnt. The BOSS GT pro however does what I need. Fat tone to thin middy tone. The fact that it doesnt have tubes bothered me at first but after plugging in I did not mind at all. The GTpro is easy to manipulate with or without a PC unlike old rack units that I had (digitech 2101,rocktron voodoo valve, alesis quadra verb2) the GTpro has most of the knobs you will need while playing live and making quick adjustments. Basically its good studio or stage, its got great tone(s), kills the POD stuff, and doesnt break your back to carry it around.

    Exactly what I had hoped for

    By Da Bone

    from Griffin, GA

    Right out of the box I was impressed by the ease of use. The sound quality is great whether I am playing through my tube amps, my stack or Fender Cyber-Twin SE. I was really amazed when I ran the outputs to two different amps. Then after I finally read some of the manual and tweaked some of the patches with GT Editor I was really blown away. It is fairly easy to backup my favorite patches or banks. I loaded some other users shared with ease. I would definitely reccomend adding the FC-200 pedal board to complete your rig.

    Only gear you need

    By sbone

    from Wellsville, KS

    I've had my GT-Pro for over a year now and have never been disappointed. The amp modeling is as good as it gets, the "stomp boxes" are as good as the floor units they replace, and all can easily be tweaked and retweaked. I've had a lot of rack gear thru the years, this unit alone will replace most pieces and take up a lot less space. This is a rack unit to be tweaked on though, don't expect to get your sound right out of the box (although they're are some killer patches from the factory). Don't expect to set the effects exactly like your stompboxes either, play with them, move them around in order, etc.Bang for buck, this will replace $9000 in rack gear and use up less space.
