Love that you plug your guitar right in without any external hardware or modifications to your instrument. Great presets but unlimited programmability for unique custom sounds. Plus all the great Boss effects are built in. Using it with my GT-1000 via an AB/Y switch to isolate or combine the outputs to my mixer.

Purchased this amazing tool primarily for the synthesizer capability but discovered it was loaded with top quality stomp box effects to mingle with synth sounds or they can be used separately. Sound shaping and editing custom settings are limitless but the fact that you plug directly in was the feature I purchased the unit for. Lots of output and connection possibilities but I use it with my GT-1000 via an A/B-Y switch to isolate them or combine their stereo outputs to my mixer. Great factory presets and lots of storage to create your own "Wow" sounds.
