Boss CUBE Street EX press releaseHigh-Performance Multi-Effects
Inside the GP-10 is a wide selection of flagship effects derived from the GT-100. Most can be used with a normal guitar (without a GK pickup), allowing the GP-10 to do double-duty as an effects processor for any guitar gig. Included are overdrives, distortions, mod effects, delay, reverb, and more, as well as intelligent harmony and other great effects. The on-board expression pedal can be used for foot volume or effects such as wah, Pedal Bend, and others.
USB Audio/MIDI Interface Built In
The GP-10 features an on-board USB audio/MIDI interface, making it easy to record great amp and effect tones in your favourite DAW with any axe. But when you use a GK-equipped guitar, the GP-10 becomes an enormously powerful creative tool that expands your production capabilities beyond any standard guitar processor. For example, you can record the audio output of each of your guitar’s strings on separate tracks, either processed with the GP-10 or captured dry for later processing.
When you record unprocessed sounds in this way, you have the ability to not only re-amp the tracks through the GP-10’s amps, but to “re-guitar” as well, using the GP-10’s instrument modelling to change the sound to anything you want after the fact! The guitar-to-MIDI function allows you to stretch your creativity even further, using your guitar to play soft synths, capture MIDI sequences, and input MIDI data into notation software on your computer.
BOSS TONE STUDIO and BOSS TONE CENTRAL
Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO software makes it simple to edit and organize your GP-10 patches on your Mac or Windows computer. In addition, the software provides direct access via USB to the BOSS TONE CENTRAL website, which offers a continually growing collection of free, ready-to-play GP-10 patches created by some of the world’s top guitarists.
GK Pickup Options for the GP-10
Depending on your needs, the GP-10 is available by itself (GP-10S), or with a Roland GK-3 Divided Pickup and 13-pin cable included in the box (GP-10GK). If you already have a GK-3 on your guitar—or if you have an instrument such as the GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster with a GK pickup built in—you’ll want to choose the GP-10S. If you want to use the GP-10’s modelling functions and you don’t have a GK-3, the GP-10GK is the way to go. The GK-3 is quick and easy to install on your favourite electric guitar with no modification needed.
