Roland MicroCube Review
If you’re familiar with any of the Roland Cubes, you’ll know that they’re awesome, powerful, and much sought after guitar amps. Imagine, if you will, all that awesome and all that power in a much more compact, portable version that still packs as much punch as ever… Ok, you can stop imagining now (and wipe your chin) as we present the Roland Microcube.
The first thing to note is that it features Roland and Boss’ signature COSM (Composite Object Sound Modelling) amp models – SEVEN of these babies, to be precise. Don’t understand what this means? Me neither! I’ll let Roland explain…
“Once a musical instrument generates sound vibrations, it reaches the human ear through various mediating objects, each of which significantly affects the sound. The material and configuration of the instrument, the electric/magnetic amplifying system, the air and the reverberation of the room all affect the final sound. Sound modelling, the latest DSP technology, “virtually” reconstructs these objects. Roland’s breakthrough Composite Object Sound Modelling (COSM) uses the advantages of multiple modelling methods and succeeds in accurately emulating existing sounds, as well as producing sounds that have never before been created.” – Thanks, Roland. You’re a pal.
The Roland Microcube also features 6 DSP (Digital Signal Processing) effects and a brand spanking new Digital Tuning Fork, so you’ll never be out of tune again. This amp really does offer all the tone you’ll ever need whilst on the move – so, if you’re a musician who doesn’t like to remain stationary for too long, this is the amp for you. What else? Oh yeah, IT’S TINY – so, you could potentially play a game of catch with it, if you were feeling completely idiotic. One more thing – it’s cheap. WOOF of appreciation.
