20-watt, 2-channel Amplifier
The CUBE-20X has has a two channel configuration that lets you switch between a clean channel and a "lead" channel, which features Roland's famous COSM modeling. The sounds available include Metal Stack, Metal, Overdrive, Distortion, Tube Drive, and an acoustic simulator taken from the BOSS AC-3 effects pedal. The CUBE-20X also features onboard effects that include reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tremolo. A 3-band EQ lets you shape your tone across the frequency spectrum. The CUBE-20X sends 20 watts of power at 8 ohms into a high-quality 8" speaker.
Recording/Headphone out and Aux in
Aside from the usual 1/4" guitar input, the CUBE-20X also has an auxilliary input (mini-jack) that allows you to input signals from an MP3 player, CD player, or drum machine and play along. There's also a 1/4" record/headphone out that enables silent practice or recording - great for those late-night bedroom jams and recording sessions. The CUBE-20X also allows you to switch channels and select effects via a TRS footswitch input. Another great all-around feature is a fully-equipped onboard guitar tuner.
Power Squeezer for maximum gain
Speaking of bedroom jams, if you need to play at lower volumes (we say "need" because no self-respecting rocker wants to), Roland has thoughtfully included a a new feature called the Power Squeezer. As you know, when you bring down the volume of an amp past a certain point, it stops responding properly - sustain doesn't last and the tone just isn't right. The Power Squeezer keeps the speaker loaded as though major wattage is going through it. The result is that you can play at extremely low volumes without losing the sustain or great response that comes with playing at higher volumes.
