By now you’re probably thinking to yourself, what does AIRD actually do? Well, the AIRD delivers natural feel and optimized integration with all types of external devices (FRFR, PA, LINE OUT and into the Front end of an amp) WITHOUT the need to disable any amp modelling.
To fully understand how important AIRD technology is, it’s definitely worth looking at our guide, ‘Why Do We Love Tube Amps & How Does A Valve Amp Work?’
Essentially, there’s a conversation between the tubes, pre-amp, power amp and your guitar, and each element is responsible for certain dynamics that only valve amps can really get right. Where some multi effects units tend to ‘muddy’ the water by emulating a snapshot of the sound of a valve amp and placing this over your sound, the AIRD technology makes sure that it’s part of the conversation and responding WITH your amp and playing dynamics rather than dictating or taking over a sound.
You don’t invest in an AC30 to use with a multi effects that will destroy the dynamics and response, do you? The BOSS GT-1000 preserves the tone of your own amp and interacts with your amplifier rather than completely overriding any existing flair or flavour you want from your existing valve amp.
This is what really makes the GT-1000 different to other multi effects units.
With others, you have to turn your amp emulations off if you want your effects to respond correctly to YOUR amp, but with the GT-1000 you don’t.
In fact, you can even tell the GT-1000 what amp you’re plugged into using the AIRD OUTPUT Options via output select, and it will alter its output to match what you are plugged into.
This makes the BOSS GT-1000 the best multi-effects pedal for tube amps, hands down!
