Not stopping there, you have access to instant altered tunings, including popular open tunings, 12-string tones, and 'down' tunings that are essential for today's ultra-heavy rock styles. The versatile GP-10S also functions as a full-featured multi-effects processor for both GK and normal pickups, giving you a huge selection of COSM amps and effects for live playing and studio recording. In addition, USB connectivity lets you capture GP-10S tones directly into your DAW, and you can even play computer-based soft synths from your axe with the GP-10S' guitar-to-MIDI convertor!
Incredible Versatility for Stage and Studio Playing
The compact GP-10S is both an instrument modelling processor and a powerful multi-effects unit. Its multi-effects section features flagship-level COSM amps and effects, and these can be used with any guitar via a standard 1/4-inch cable. Plugging into the GP-10S's GK input with a Roland GK-compatible pickup and a 13-pin cable unlocks the instrument modelling section, opening up a world of amazing sonic possibilities for both live playing and studio recording.
Instantly Change Your Guitar's Tuning
With a GK-compatible pickup, the GP-10S allows you to change your guitar's tuning with the press of a pedal. There's no need to change instruments or manually re-tune for different songs or styles—just dial up the tuning you need in the GP-10S and go. Play slide in open tunings like G and E, enjoy shimmering 12-string tones, or drop your entire guitar down in semitone steps for massive, ultra-heavy riffs. There are many tuning presets to choose from, and you can also create your own customised tunings for any application.
A World-Class Collection of Classic Guitars, Synths and More
In addition to instant tuning changes, using a GK-compatible pickup with the GP-10S lets you change your instrument's entire sound as well. On hand are classic modelled electric guitars with single coils and humbuckers, plus steel- and nylon-string acoustics, basses, banjo, resonator, fretless guitar, and even a sitar! The GP-10S also includes an impressive analogue-modelled synth engine that powers an authentic emulation of the famous Roland GR-300 analogue guitar synth and a super-fat OSC Synth with two oscillators and many easily adjustable sound parameters. In addition, a selection of cool 'Poly FX' deliver unique sounds only possible with GK processing, allowing you to take your playing into exciting new territory. Modelled sounds can be blended with your guitar's normal sound, putting an infinite range of tones under your fingers.
Natural, Ultra-Responsive COSM Amps
A core factor that defines an electric guitar's sound is the amplifier type, and the GP-10S is filled with them. 30 different amps are at your disposal, including classic combos, vintage stacks, and modern high-gain amps, along with bass amps for modelled bass tones and a full-range amp for acoustic sounds. Powered by custom BOSS DSP and the latest developments in COSM technology, the amps in the GP-10S deliver organic, responsive tone, with adjustable settings to vary the natural compression and playing feel. All the GP-10S' amps can be used with either normal guitars or those equipped with a GK pickup.
Inside the GP-10S 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-10S 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-10S 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-10S 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-10S 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-10S's amps, but to 're-guitar' as well, using the GP-10S'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

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-10S patches created by some of the world's top guitarists.
