1988 — ME-5 Guitar Multiple Effects

As the first integrated, floor-based effects processor, the ME-5 let guitarists tap into a wide range of high-quality programmable BOSS multi-effects—all in a single, convenient pedalboard. Optional control and expression pedals gave performers additional realtime control, and there was even a handy tuner output. This single product launched a whole category that remains popular to this day.
