Journey to New Sonic Frontiers

With the SY-1, it’s never been easier to infuse your creative arsenal with BOSS’s legendary guitar synth technology. This amazingly expressive tool is filled with 121 ultra-responsive sounds, all distilled down into a BOSS compact pedal that slides easily into any setup. Best of all, it’s as simple to use as a standard stompbox, so you don’t need any background in synth programming to bring a new world of sonic textures to your music.

Synth sounds with no programming needed

Guitar synth pedals have been around for a while and Boss really impressed with their SY-300. This laid the ground for this fantastic new addition to the compact stompbox range, allowing you to get great synth tones without having to install a specific pickup to your guitar. You can also choose how much of your dry guitar signal to dial in alongside your effected sound.

Another great trick is the hold function which will sustain the last played synth sound and allow you to jam over the top!

Effects Loop On-Board

The SY-1 would fit in any standard signal chain but can also be used to create unique synth tones with its send and return function! So you can patch drive pedals into the loop and send the combined output to modulation and delay to process the entire signal. The send can also be used as a direct output as which allows you to route your synth and guitar sounds to separate destinations. Neat huh?
