Maybe.
 The color and knobs have the look of the GT-8/ME-70/ME-25, and the size and pedal layout is simular to the GT-10, the display looks like something from Line6, but the dual displays is new for Boss.

Seems like there is always some retailer who "leaks" info a day or so early.... coincidence, or buzz builder?

Line 6 used to go so far as to add pages and images to their website, um, er, not thinking anyone would "find" them..

It's all fun, though :)

Seems like a cross between a GT-10 and a GT-8 to me - I like the return of knobs!

But they missed with only ONE external Control Jack - which means you can have either:

* External 2nd Expression Pedal

OR

* Two External Footswitches

but Not  Both -


And they removed the typical SPDIF Out, and replaced it with the USB Audio Interface.

But this seems to be the only way to obtain the latest improved versions of Roland's COSM Amp modelling.  I must say the COSM Amp models in even the Micro BR-80 are an improvement over the now 5 year old VG-99 equivalent versions .


They are bean counting to keep cost down.

Gumtown -

I figure its 99% fact that Roland dropped the ball and Will NOT have an Editor for the GT-100.

These days - they actually Charge Extra for the GUI Editor
(for example the Roland GAIA Synth Editor is an optional purchase)

would be nice if they could provide a complimentary one this time
(although I know it will never happen),
since I have done free editors for 11 different Boss/Roland products so far

You would THINK getting one to you fast would be a no brainier!

BUT I first hand have seen Roland cares VERY little for outside support.
Your best bet is to privatize and think of you self.
Get paid for your hard work and answer to no one.

Its wonderful to give your work away, but at this point its way beyond a hobby.
You have a product and deserve to be be payed for it.
You have bills and a family that needs to be feed.
Most who uses your program work day jobs to feed their family.
They come home and there is your work for free.
Would the guys downloading your free program work for free if were not paid????
Never!

Of course Bill is right -

This weekend at NAMM I will remind all Roland people I see that Colin's (Gumtown) efforts creating Graphic User Interface Editors for numerous pieces of Roland / Boss gear have played a significant role in Roland's success  in the marketplace - particularly with the GR-55.

 Of course I will try to nail them on the existence   / status of any forthcoming  "factory" Roland GT-100 Editor.

BOSS ANNOUNCES GT-100 AMP EFFECTS PROCESSOR
New Ultra-Responsive Amp Models, Updated Effects, Dual Displays, and
More
Los Angeles, CA, January 19, 2012 — BOSS is proud to introduce the GT-100
Amp Effects Processor, the latest addition to the popular GT-series lineup of floorbased
multi-effects units for guitarists. Driven by a powerful new BOSS DSP engine,
the GT-100 is the most advanced GT ever, loaded with newly developed, ultraresponsive
COSM® amps, updated effects with enhanced real-time control options,
dual displays for easy sound programming, and more.
BOSS has completely remodeled all of the COSM amps in the GT-100, distilling
decades of sound research to create the best-sounding guitar processor the
company has produced to date. Reaching far beyond conventional vintage amp
modeling, the GT-100 includes a host of all-new amps that deliver amazingly
transparent clean tones to ultra-high gain modern sounds and everything in between.
At the core of the GT-100 is BOSS’ new proprietary DSP chip, a blazing-fast
processor that provides unparalleled muscle for COSM amps and effects. Thanks to
this powerful new chip, the GT-100’s COSM amps sound better than ever before,
with a dynamic touch and response that truly captures the feel and expressiveness of
the world’s finest tube-based amplifiers.
The GT-100 is also a powerful multi-effects processor packed with a huge array of
effects, including overdrives, distortions, delays, pitch shifters, modulation, reverb,
and many more. The newly developed ACCEL pedal lets players creative explosive
effects in live performance by adjusting multiple effects parameters in real time with
one simple foot press.
The GT-100’s user interface has been completely redesigned as well, offering easy,
intuitive operation that greatly improves on previous designs. Dual displays make
navigation simple while programming tones, with intuitive parameter adjustment via
easy-to-grab knobs. The GT-100 also includes the acclaimed EZ TONE, which gives
everyone from beginners to pros the ability to dial up world-class tones with just a
few tweaks. AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE functions, which enable to
create original amps and OD/DS, are newly added to EZ TONE.
Housed in a road-tested, all-metal GT chassis with a sleek black finish, the GT-100 is
ready for action on stage and in the studio. Eight onboard foot switches provide
control over patch selection, as well as immediate access to the built-in Phrase
Looper and ACCEL functions. The integrated heavy-duty expression pedal offers foot
control over volume, wah, pitch effects, and more. Additionally, the new quick-access
Manual mode instantly transforms the GT-100 from a patch-based multi-effects unit
to a pedalboard full of legendary stomps with individual on/off control.
The GT-100 will be available in February 2012. For more information, visit

GT-100 - Overview

GT-100
Amp Effects Processor
Mega Multi-FX with Next-Generation Amp Modeling
features
?

The long-awaited follow up to the GT-10 has arrived. Meet the new BOSS effects flagship, the GT-100, boasting next-generation amp modeling that recreates vintage amps as well as providing new COSM tones that soar into the future. The user interface has been improved with a unique dual-LCD system, and EZ TONE has been enhanced with newly designed AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE features. The GT-100 is a powerhouse processor that spans from classic to futuristic in a friendly, rugged, road-worthy unit.

    Advanced COSM amps that model vintage amp tones and delivers never-before-heard tones
    Dual-LCD for simple and intuitive operation with direct access to every parameter
    Improved EZ Tone TONE feature with graphical TONE GRID for constructing new patches; AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE lets you easily create original amps and overdrive/distortion by customizing their behavior
    Newly developed ACCEL pedal for simultaneous control of multiple parameters

Advanced COSM Amp: Beyond Vintage

With its next-generation COSM processor, the GT-100 ushers in a new era of expression and sonic capabilities. Recreating the meticulous details of vintage amps and how they behave, the GT-100 excels in not only cloning classic amps, but provides a new world of unimagined tones as well. The AMP CUSTOMIZE function lets you mutate classic amps beyond reality. Construct completely new, unimagined sounds!
Simple and Intuitive User Interface

The GT-100’s unique dual-LCD and eight-knob user interface provides fast access and intuitive control. There are no menus to navigate; every function is instantly available. The tone-customizing functionality has been improved as well. All patches, amps, and overdrive/distortions can be created from scratch and/or customized with the friendly graphical TONE GRID.
New Tonal Possibilities with the ACCEL Pedal

A new dimension of expression is available with the ACCEL pedal, which enables control of multiple parameters simultaneously, as well as time-variant effects such as FEEDBACKER, S-BEND, TWIST, etc. Experiment with creative combinations of parameters, interacting in real time with the pedal.
New A/B Channel Divide Function

Another notable new feature onboard the GT-100 is the versatile A/B Channel Divide. Assign different amps and effects to each channel, and divide the signal not only by dynamics, but by frequency as well, with each channel capable of driving its own effects and amps settings. The range of tonal possibilities gets wider, and wilder! Assign smooth, mild lead tones to the mid-to-high pitches, for example, and heavy, cutting tones to the lower notes.
