Composite Object Sound Modelling (COSM) is Roland’s innovative and powerful sound-modelling technology. COSM analyses the many factors that make up the original sound, such as the electrical and physical characteristics of the original, and then produces a digital model that can reproduce the same sound. In designing the CUBE-XL series, Roland meticulously analysed and modelled an array of world-class amps and effects to bring you the versatile and authentic tone palette that these amps provide.
