Stands out from other modelling pedal boards
HugoJ, 19.11.2018
I have owned a number of digital effect boards in the past (Vox's, the G-System, Firehawk HD, Helix). We could talk about connectivity and related matters: Boss' app can only be used on portrait mode on a tablet or phone for some reason, and it's not as easy or intuitive as the one for the Firehawk / Helix. The Desktop software for the GT1000 is fairly decent and a very nice extra. Not perfect either. We could argue back and forth about which one sounds more "organic", which one is more "plasticky". Certainly the Helix might have an edge in that department, although personally that advantage is not as big as to make it the key aspect to prefer the Helix.

So my contribution to the conversation comes in form of the flexibility of sound manipulation. This is something very important to me, and hopefully it's something a few other users might want to know about. This is in fact, the decisive factor on my decision of purchasing this unit, as someone who enjoys sound design, rather than the purity of classic tones. The GT1000 inherits the innovations of the Boss MS3 in terms of signal routing / signal chain. This is a huge deal, because the different in sound is tremendous just by switching the routing. The same simple arrangement of a delay + pitch shifter + reverb can produce a dramatically different sound when you send the signal to the shifter first, whilst you process in parallel towards the delay and reverb, or ANY combination thereby.

This is what makes the GT1000 unique.

I would love it if the footswitches were as big as the G_System.
I would love it if they didn't feel so close together (maybe it's just a legacy of used the G-System for too long).

However, If sound design/innovation is your focus, there's no parallel to the GT1000.

Un saut en avant !
ALXFR, 21.11.2020
Plutôt que de rentrer dans les détails, voici mon expérience et le pourquoi de mon choix du Boss GT-1000.

Un grand saut en avant pour moi que ce multi-effets ! Je n'avais, jusqu'à présent, jamais été convaincu en terme de son par ce genre d'engin, même si j'en avais déjà eu plusieurs en petit format pour le côté pratique, mais utilisés uniquement chez moi. Pour les concerts, je m'étais toujours tourné vers un lot de pédales d'effets branché dans un ampli à lampes, avec grande satisfaction !
Pourquoi franchir le cap, alors ?
Eh bien parce que je me suis retrouvé à jouer à la fois de la guitare et de l'orgue dans le même groupe et qu'il m'a donc fallu rationaliser tout ça pour minimiser le matériel à transporter à chaque fois.

En pratique, la guitare est branchée sur l'entrée normale, alors que l'orgue est en stéréo (enfin !) sur les prises "Return" des boucles d'effets, placées en toute fin du chaînage virtuel ; seul le looper est placé après. Pas d'effets externes dans les boucles, donc, mais avec tout ce qui est déjà disponible en interne, il y a largement de quoi faire ! Tout n'est pas parfait, bien sûr, notamment la Crybaby à mes oreilles, et il est évident qu'une pédale d'effet individuelle pourra toujours (quoique) mieux faire.
Le système de "stompbox" est très bien pensé et permet de retrouver les mêmes sons d'un emplacement mémoire à l'autre. J'utilise même parfois le looper intégré, bien qu'il soit sommaire.

Les simulations d'amplis sont bonnes, je ne cherchais pas un réalisme absolu mais quelque chose qui s'approche de vrais amplis et surtout qui sonne bien. Je suis servi. Les possibilités de chaînages (trois boucles virtuelles) sont d'une grande utilité et flexibilité, entre mode stéréo ou canal A/B qu'on peut changer d'un simple appui sur un bouton bien programmé.
Côté programmation, d'ailleurs, j'ai adopté un schéma qui se retrouve dans chaque mémoire, avec seulement quelques fonctions qui changent pour tel ou tel morceau, ce qui me permet de ne pas être perdu, tout en m'adaptant au titre du moment.

Côté MIDI, je n'y connaissais rien mais j'ai quand même réussi à m'en sortir et je peux envoyer des commandes à mon orgue Hammond, ne serait-ce que les changements de programme !
Enfin, entre les sorties normales et les sorties SUB, il y a ce qu'il faut pour la scène.

Aucun regret d'avoir acquis ce pédalier GT-1000, les progrès en simulations d'amplis sont considérables et le contrôle du volume est bien plus facile pour le confort sur scène.

Petite mise-à-jour : en plus de l'orgue, je pilote désormais un Boss RC-10R (boîte-à-rythmes et looper) à partir du GT-1000, par câble direct stéréo et par MIDI. Les possibilités sont décidément nombreuses !

Pedalboard-Modus ist genial – warmer direkter Sound
Curt, 19.11.2019
Einige Jahre lang habe ich mit meiner Danelectro und dem Fender Blues Junior III bewusst puristisch Blues gespielt. Die weiche analoge Bluesverzerrung hat sich in meinen Ohren festgesetzt. Dann waren aber doch Bodentreter angesagt. Warum sollte ich mehrere Effektgeräte platzraubend koppeln mit all den Kabel- und Stromversorgungsproblemen? Der GT-100 wurde gekauft. Dessen Klang ging ok und vieles konnte in den Patches feinjustiert werden. Aber: eben nur Patches, welche mit einiger IT-Erfahrung auf die Tasten gelegt werden konnten. Auf der Bühne brauchte ich schon einen genauen Plan im Kopf, die Patches passend der Setlist abzurufen.

Dann kam der GT-1000 auf den Markt. Zahlreiche Rezensionen vergleichbarer Effektgeräte sind von mir als Videos gesichtet worden. Meine Ohren haben trotz teilweise schlechter Aufnahmequalität herausgehört, dass die konkurrierenden Hersteller doch eher einem „Windows-Sound“ entsprechen: Wenig Dynamik und blutleer wirkend - Plastiksound.

Der GT-1000 klingt warm, direkt und verhält sich verdammt ähnlich den Verstärker-Originalen. Jede Gitarre (Gibson, Fender, Danelectro oder Ibanez) kommt anders herüber und die Einstellung der Potis an den Gitarren verändert hörbar den Sound. Diesbezüglich hat Boss ganze Arbeit geleistet. Der persönliche Geschmack entscheidet.

Der GT-1000 bringt mit dem Firmware-Update 3.x eine geniale Funktion: den Pedalboard-Modus. Die Tasten entsprechen einzelnen Bodentretern, als hätte man sie mit Kabeln gekoppelt und in einem Koffer angeordnet. Die Anordnung sieht man im Display sofort. Absolut intuitiv! Jeder Bodentreter kann über die Software einfach justiert werden – als wenn man sich bückt und an den Potis des Effektgerätes dreht. Die Bodentreter können individuell angeordnet bzw. ausgetauscht werden. Wow, das wäre beim GT-100 auch schon schick gewesen. Mit anderen Worten: mit dem GT-1000 spart man sich den Kauf mehrerer einzelner Bodentreter.

Darüber hinaus ist der GT-1000 eine fast unendliche Spielwiese, um den eigenen Sound herauszutüfteln. Dazu ist tief in die Bedienung und Programmierung einzusteigen. Kann man machen, muss man aber nicht – siehe Pedalboard-Modus.

Ach ja, meinen Fender Blues Junior III habe ich für den GT-1000 auf Clean eingestellt. Herrlicher Sound!

Zur Hardware: die stufenweise Anordnung der Tasten ermöglicht den Fußtritt, ohne den Fuß anheben zu müssen. Sehr angenehm.

Zur Elektronik: die USB-Kopplung mit dem Notebook lässt manchmal vernehmbares Zwitschern aufkommen. Das hängt aber davon ab, welche USB-Buchse (B oder C) gerade verwendet wird und wird wohl bei jedem PC-Gerät anders sein.
