Well this is something of a moment - BOSS have developed a polyphonic guitar synthesizer which you can plug any guitar into with a jack input.
We went to visit the BOSS booth at MusikMESSE 2015 to hear it in action, and Alex Hutchings was the man who gave us the run through.
The top panel of the synth features three assignable footswitch controls, as well as four multi-function knobs which can, among other things, be used to control the three oscilators on the digital synth.
There is also an expression input, so you can filter sweep with an expression pedal.
The pedal should be available around July, and the rumoured price is to be around £500.
