BOSS IR-2 AMP & CABINET
A professional direct guitar solution in a BOSS compact pedal.

TAKE YOUR SIGNATURE SOUND EVERYWHERE
When using a regular guitar amplifier, getting consistent tones in different performance situations can sometimes be a challenge. With the compact and versatile IR-2 in your rig, you’re always ready to deliver your signature sound directly to a house PA or recording setup when needed. Choose from 11 premium amp types paired with Celestion Digital IRs and instantly tweak your sound via simple controls. Use the mono/stereo loop for post-amp effects and plug in headphones for monitoring and quiet practice. And with onboard USB-C, you can easily interface with music software and load in your favourite cab IRs.

FEATURES

  • Premium amp emulator and cabinet IR loader in a BOSS compact pedal
  • Exceptional audio quality with 32-bit floating-point processing and 96 kHz sampling rate
  • Eleven different amp types and high-quality cab IRs from Celestion Digital
  • Simple user interface with Level, Gain, Bass, Middle, and Treble controls
  • Ambience effect with dedicated control
  • Mono input and stereo outputs
  • Mono/stereo loop for patching in mod, delay, and reverb effects after the amp emulation
  • Headphones jack for practice
  • USB-C for recording and audio playback via a computer or iOS device
  • Switch between two amp/cab tones with the pedal switch or an external footswitch
  • Dedicated IR-2 IR Loader app (macOS/Windows) for loading your own cabinet IRs
  • Amp and cabinet sections can be turned on/off independently for isolated use
  • BOSS five-year warranty

PRO GUITAR SOUNDS TO GO
The IR-2 packs the inspiring sounds of classic tube amps and mic’d speaker cabinets in a standard stompbox footprint, giving you easy access to studio-grade tones on quiet stages, fly dates, recording gigs, and practice sessions. Backed by decades of BOSS tone expertise, every selection delivers the same expressive nuance and dynamic touch response of a real amp and cabinet. Audio quality is also top-notch, thanks to advanced DSP, 32-bit floating point processing, and a 96 kHz sampling rate.

INSPIRING TONES FOR EVERY STYLE
Eleven solid platforms dish up every guitar amp flavor, from famous tube combos to vintage and modern stacks. There are also several original BOSS amps, including a high-gain Brown type derived from the Katana series. The amps are all paired with curated Celestion Digital IRs for dialling up polished sounds right away. If you prefer to use cab IRs from your own collection, you can load them into the pedal via USB-C and a dedicated app.

IMMEDIATE SOUND CREATION
With the IR-2’s intuitive interface, you’ll be ready to play in seconds. Simply select an amp type and tweak the sound with familiar amp-style controls. Then twist the Ambience knob to add some natural spaciousness and depth if desired. You can plug your other pedals into the IR-2’s input, just like you would with an amp. If you want to go further, use the send/return loop to patch mod, delay, and reverb effects into the chain after the amp sounds. The TRS return jack supports stereo operation, letting you pass stereo effects to the IR-2’s audio outputs.

PLAY AND RECORD ANYWHERE
Adding the IR-2 to your pedalboard greatly expands its versatility, giving you a complete guitar sound solution everywhere you play.

PRACTICE AND REHEARSAL
Connect headphones and enjoy top-quality guitar tones in every practice session, whether playing at home or traveling on the road. And prepare for upcoming shows with the same pedalboard setup you’ll use on stage. Audio playback from a computer or iOS device is supported via USB-C, allowing you to jam with songs from your music library and follow along with lessons from YouTube and other sources.

STAGE PERFORMANCE
Take the guesswork out of great stage sound and perform with consistent tones in every venue. Sending a feed from the IR-2’s outputs to a house PA system provides a studio-quality signal that’s not affected by the performance environment. And if you need more than one amp sound while performing, you can toggle between two IR-2 amp/cab setups with the pedal switch or an external footswitch.

RECORDING
Via the IR-2’s USB-C connector, send the sound of your complete rig directly to music recording software. Add tracks to full productions in a computer DAW. Or plug into your smartphone and capture inspiration on the move. You can monitor audio from the IR-2 and your software through headphones, eliminating the need to use a separate audio interface.
