January 21, Winter NAMM – Roland and BOSS have just announced new products for this year’s Winter NAMM Show in Anahiem, CA. For now, let’s look a three: Cube Lite Guitar Amplifier, DA-2 Distortion Pedal, and the V-Combo VR-09 Live Performance Keyboard.
The new Roland CUBE Lite guitar amplifier lets you play and record at home along with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It combines COSM guitar tones, iOS interfacing, and a quality 2.1 Channel audio system. Simply put, its a cool guitar amp with a built-in iOS interface.
The CUBE Lite blends in seamlessly with any living space, home, dorm, whatever, and and looks more like a consumer audio system than a typical manly guitar amp. Also, it’s not only a versatile guitar amp, it doubles as a high-quality playback system for your digital music library.
The BOSS DA-2 guitar effects pedal features Multi-Dimensional Processing with multiple distortion processors to seamlessly adapt the sound in real time and create the ideal tone for every register. It’s not like standard distortion pedals that process the entire guitar signal with one effect. As a result, the DA-2 delivers a rich, musical distortion that plays well all over the neck, from tight, edgy low-string tones to fat, smooth highs for lead playing. With the power of MDP, the DA-2’s distortion is dramatically responsive to your playing dynamics, and every note is heard with clarity and definition.
The V-Combo VR-09 is loaded with ready-to-play synthesizer sounds, from vintage analog classics like JUNO strings and ‘80s synth brass to textured, modern-era digital tones and beyond. Front-panel controllers allow you to tweak the synth tones intuitively in real time, including convenient ADR and cutoff/resonance adjustment with the harmonic bars in the ORGAN block. Onboard effects like “Bit Crash” provide the ability to create modern synth voices for current dance music.
