Boss has unveiled the Pocket GT, its smallest GT unit yet.

This incredible machine stuffs a GT sound engine with over 100 amps and effects, an integrated YouTube learning function and more into a package that can quite literally fit into your pocket. 

The Pocket GT features the same sound engine as Boss' GT-1 floor processor, and packs 99 user memories. These come filled with ready-to-play sounds, but users can also customize them or create their own from scratch. Stored amp and effects setups can also be exchanged with the GT-1 via their respective Boss Tone Studio editors.

The Boss Tone Studio app offers a YouTube browser that streams sound to the Pocket GT, while user memory switching allows for switching up sounds as a video plays. Users can also assign user memories to markers, change sounds automatically during video playback, set markers to repeat sections and create video song lists.

Other features on the Pocket GT include an onboard tuner, a built-in rechargeable battery with up to four hours of runtime and a USB audio interface that allows users to record into a DAW. Additional patches can also be found at Boss Tone Central.

Elsewhere, there's a center cancel function to reduce the volume of guitar solos and vocals in videos and music tracks, plus the ability to wirelessly stream music over Bluetooth or connect via the Aux In jack.

The Boss Pocket GT will be available in the next few weeks for $249.
