NAMM: BOSS GT-PRO - ain't it heavy
It doesn't look like it weighs 2 tons

BOSS have released their most powerful effects processor with two COSM effects engines. Providing a broad range of inputs and outputs including four 1/4" analog audio outputs, a pair of balanced XLR outputs, and three pairs of effects send/returns. Signals can be split to other amps via the stereo Sub Outs. For high-resolution recording, the GT-Pro offers a 24-bit coaxial output the routing of which is user-definable. In recording situations, multiple signal paths can be set up one for the recording input, for example, one for a private monitor, and another to the digital out in the signal path (independent of the loop out and main outs). For one-cable patch management, a USB port is provided for connecting the GT-Pro to a computer; the GT-Pro comes with Mac/PC editor/librarian software at no additional cost. In addition, the GT-Pro provides USB-Audio functionality. The GT-Pro allows towering tones to constructed by combining any two of the 46 amp models then layering, switching, or panning between them during performance. Amp channels can even be controlled by the strength of a player’s picking. No matter which amp model has been selected, a companion lead tone is instantly available with the click of the Solo Switch. It’s like having a separate solo channel for every COSM amp model. 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 offers highly flexible effects routing. Internally, the 13 effects blocks can be configured in any order desired; externally, a trio of effects loops plus an array of assignable outputs enables the most flexible signal-routing configurations. The GT-Pro offers top-grade analog circuitry and balanced outputs, and, thanks to its improved signal-to-noise ratio, it delivers an incredibly pure signal path. Its built-in ground-lift switch can be used to keep signals clean, no matter the stage or studio environment. For further details:
