AIRD: a revolution in digital amp processing
GT-1000CORE harnesses Boss's breakthrough AIRD technology for a new level of performance, flexibility and usability. AIRD is an evolution of the comprehensive Tube Logic concept behind the Katana, Waza and Blues Cube amplifiers, adapted to provide consistent response across the many different scenarios where an amp processor might be used. AIRD enables GT-1000CORE to smoothly flow into any creative setup, providing great tone and natural tube amp feel with minimal adjustments. A large selection of AIRD Output Select types let you tailor the sound for any destination, whether it's a guitar amp input, a power amp driving guitar speakers or a full-range monitoring system – or all of them at once. AIRD is fully integrated into GT-1000CORE's amps at every level, so you'll always experience their authentic sound and response, no matter what you're plugged into.
Premium amps and effects
GT-1000CORE is loaded with expressive guitar amplifiers, all meticulously crafted with AIRD. There are Boss original amps suitable for all guitar styles, plus famous tube amps from coveted vintage combos to modern high-gain heads. A massive range of effects options are also on board, including Boss classics, retro stompboxes, MDP effects and advanced algorithms from the Boss 500 series. Multiple series and parallel routings are easy to set up with the intuitive interface. And with the clever Stompbox feature, commonly used amp and effects settings can be adjusted across multiple patches at once.
Top-flight bass processor
GT-1000CORE is a bass processing powerhouse, offering exceptional sound processing and versatile DI capabilities in a grab-and-go package. Three AIRD bass preamps are provided for shaping your core tone and eight different overdrive/distortion effects are available for additional color. There's an MDP bass compressor too, plus chorus, flanger, touch wah and many other effects specially tuned for bass.
