With the SY-1 Synthesizer, BOSS brings their latest guitar synth technology to the iconic compact pedal lineup. Equipped with a powerful polyphonic engine, the SY-1 delivers 121 ultra-responsive synth sounds, all ready to play with no programming knowledge needed. Offering easy connectivity via a standard 1/4-inch cable, this versatile pedal makes it simple for any guitarist or bassist to incorporate an authentic BOSS synth into their music.

Backed by advanced tech first developed for the SY-300, the SY-1 packs a wide range of analog-style synth sounds in a pedalboard-friendly size. Leads, pads, organs, basses, and more are included, plus a variety of sound effects and rhythmic synth patterns. Sounds are organized into 11 different types, with 11 variations in each.

Thanks to custom DSP and the latest BOSS innovations, the SY-1 offers latency-free performance for a natural and organic playing experience. Tone/Rate and Depth knobs provide quick adjustment of synth voices, including changing the pitch on some sounds. And with a rear-panel switch, the input circuitry can be instantly optimized for either guitar or bass.

BOSS introduces the RC-10R Rhythm Loop Station, the latest addition to its long-running family of Loop Station products. Combining song-based looping, organic rhythms, and class-leading sound in a compact package, the RC-10R gives musicians an expressive new tool for developing ideas and making stage performances more dynamic and compelling. Designed for in-the-moment music creation, the RC-10R brings loops and rhythms together in a powerful, interactive way. The rhythms feature song structures with separate parts, and the two-track loop engine works in a serial fashion that's perfectly synced to the rhythm. This enables users to capture independent song sections, each with their own unique rhythmic backing. Two fill variations bring natural energy to loop transitions, while intro/ending fills bookend pieces in an organic way. Equipped with over 280 built-in rhythms, the RC-10R supports nearly any musical style. Users can also import their own SMF rhythms and store them in 50 onboard locations. With 16 different kits, any groove can be instantly transformed from heavy rock to light percussion and everything in-between.
