BOSS has announced the ME-90 Guitar Multiple Effects, a versatile and easy-to-use effects processor for guitarists. The BOSS ME series has been a favorite of performing guitarists for over three decades, combining multi-effects power with hands-on control for crafting tones in seconds. The ME-90 is the most advanced ME model to date, offering exceptional audio quality with 24-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating point processing, flagship-grade AIRD amp models, IR loading, an effects loop, and more. Compact, battery-powered, and filled with premium BOSS tones, this all-in-one processor makes it simple to build customized sound setups for every playing situation.
With its intuitive interface and diverse effects selection, the ME-90 allows guitarists to create configurations and tweak tones with the ease of a stompbox-filled pedalboard. The panel includes 30 different knobs for selecting categories and dialing in sounds instantly. There are 36 preset patches with ready-to-play pro tones, plus 36 user patches for storing personalized setups.
Along with its effects, the ME-90 includes amp models ported from the GT-1000, driven by advanced AIRD technology for authentic tube tone and touch response. Eleven onboard amp types offer everything from clean combo tones to punishing high-gain stacks, and more selections are available in BOSS Tone Studio. Each amp includes a dedicated cab sound for connecting to a PA or recording device, and it’s also possible to load three user speaker IRs with a dedicated software app.
The ME-90 features eight footswitches with smooth, quiet operation and an expression pedal with an integrated toe switch. Memory mode allows the player to call up complete patch setups with the footswitches, while Manual mode provides direct on/off control of each effect category within the patch. The footswitch LEDs light in different colors for quick identification in the heat of a performance. There’s also an option to set all LEDs to light in fixed colors for each mode if desired.
