BOSS, the subsidiary of Roland today introduced the all-new guitar pedal 200 series including a new digital delay (DD-200), a graphic EQ (EQ-200), a modulation unit (MD-200) and a hybrid drive (OD-200). All these stompboxes (32-bit AD/DA & 96kHz sampling rate) are not simple effects but they can do much more than a normal effect pedal.
Good to know for Synthesizer players: the 200 series has stereo inputs/outputs as well as MIDI support. Very nice pedals, which also priced very fair for the feature amount you get.
DD-200 Digital Delay
The DD-200 Digital Delay brings together sounds and features inherited from the flagship DD-500 into an even smaller footprint. Twelve different modes offer an inspiring variety of delay colors from modern digital to classic analog, letting you dial up everything from basic echoes to rich ambient pads and everything in-between. There’s also a looper that’s always ready to use, plus a selectable carryover function for seamless transitions between memories.

EQ-200 Graphic Equalizer
The EQ-200 Graphic Equalizer is a precision tone-shaping tool for guitar, bass, and other instruments, offering two wide-ranging 10-band EQ channels and a graphic display that shows the current EQ curve at a glance.
The MD-200 Modulation provides an array of world-class mod effects in one small, convenient pedal.
There are 12 modes to choose from, with direct panel access to rate, depth, and level plus up to three parameters tailored to each mode. Using the versatile insert function, players can patch in drive pedals and other effects for selectable pre or post-processing.
OD-200 Hybrid Drive
The OD-200 Hybrid Drive brings next-level tone, feel, and flexibility to overdrive and distortion.
Combining decades of BOSS tone expertise with innovative technologies, the OD-200 offers 12 unique modes, hybrid analog/digital circuitry, three-band EQ, and powerful pre and post boost for detailed gain shaping. There’s also an advanced gate circuit built in, ideal for eliminating noise and adding tightness to high-gain drive tones.
Equipped with MIDI I/O on mini TRS jacks, 200 series pedals provide support for advanced control while conserving pedalboard space. The optional BMIDI-5-35, available for $19.99 USD, is a 5 ft./1 m cable with an angled 3.5 mm TRS connector on one end and a standard 5-pin male MIDI connector on the other, allowing users to connect a 200 series pedal to nearly any MIDI-equipped device.
BOSS 200 Series pedals will be available in September 2019 for a price of $249.99 USD.
