Back in November, Boss announced the Nextone Artist and Nextone Stage amps, which allow for the customization of internal amp parameters, including tone stack type, EQ, sag, bias, effects, system settings and more via computer-based editing for Mac or Windows via the Nextone Editor. 

Now, Boss has released a Version 2.0 update for the Editor software that offers additional personalization options. Primary among these is the new Character Shape, which offers “designer level control over the core behavior of the power amp." There’s also an Extra Headroom switch that increases punch and dynamics.
