" Bad!"

Roland GR-55GKPublished on 07/09/13 at 04:54

See reviews for other features. I simply say that the connection is very complete.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is simple for anyone accustomed to this kind of material. For those menus and "digital" repel settings, operate the unit as long as possible before buying to see if you'll get used. My local music retailer sent me a new purchaser of GR55 so I showed him the basics and there's never happened and was very disappointed.

Everything is relatively simple, even if here and there menus or functions are not very practical.

The manual is not bad, but again it depends on the level of habit that we navigate through menus, etc ...

The manual is not bad, but again it depends on the level of habit that we navigate through menus, etc ...

GETTING STARTED

I picked up the camera quickly.

With GK3 mounted on a Hagstrom HJ500, I encountered great difficulties adjusting the sensor to drive without a noise or have a correct answer. Many sounds were useless and it would take forever to set all the parameters (I spent hours and hours!) To get something to drink.

So I decided to drive it with a Godin synth XTSA. The problem was a little less ubiquitous, but many sounds do not seem playable: one rule or less sensitive and it does not meet one or all of sudden, you go from "nothing at all" with a jungle of ghost notes. In addition, the number of parameters affecting the quality of reproduction makes it extremely complex and time-setting to the point of certain sounds. As I prefer to play music rather than adjust the hours and hours of equipment, I decided not to use certain sounds.

With a Stratocaster GC-1 is better. But not this.

Anyway, we must re-learn to play the guitar with this device and adopt a new "touch". And then you have to learn to play in the spirit of the instrument that wants to emulate.

OVERALL OPINION

My opinion is very subjective. This device has made me realize that nothing beats a good guitar, a good amp (with possible effects: overdrive, chorus, etc.) ... I ended up telling me that guitar is made to play the guitar, that is more effective tea strainer to prepare infusions for its shave in the morning.

Still very subjective: the modeled guitar sounds do not pack me. It sounds artificial, some are very soft (despite hours and hours of attempted improvement settings), there is no in-game, the flexibility that gives a guitar on which the volume buttons, tone The pickup selector can vary the sounds of the instrument. In other words, "shape" sound and then during the game, except for some additions using the pedal, you have to stuff the same sound ... or change the preset ...

Many other factory sounds seem uninteresting, very gadget. Many sounds sensible imitate another instrument (even trying to fine tune) do not sound great, and seem quite synthetic. I prefer a good deal of real guitar that sounds good a kind of ersatz piano, for example, which shows immediately that it is not a piano.

I actually think I do not have "the mind to use such a device." I persisted in use for eight months intensively to try to convince me of its usefulness and pleasure he could give me. And I concluded: "blah". I keep it in case, to save a bad piano part on a bad piece if I need the bad, but if I had known, I would never have bought this device that I consider a gimmick.

But given the number of glowing reports received by this material, I think that maybe I'm wrong!

" An innovative product"

Roland GR-55GKPublished on 11/19/12 at 13:21
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is very good, and I love the USB port to Accompany with mp3 or another.

UTILIZATION

I already have a VG-99, so I'm not lost, but I must admit that it is not easy for the uninitiated

GETTING STARTED

Apart from installing the sensor on the guitar, the rest should normally be accessible!

OVERALL OPINION

The sounds are very good, easy to carry.
However, I warned those who think it is a mixture of VG-99 and GR-20 (or 30 ..) as I've read everywhere, THIS IS NOT THE CASE!
This is a much improved one GR VG, I think it is even further!

I took a little thinking that, but in fact the VG-99 can be replaced by this product because it is not at all the same type of sound (There......

I took a little thinking that, but in fact the VG-99 can be replaced by this product because it is not at all the same type of sound (There is no sound quality guitar VG -99), but it is in very good synth, very versatile, as long as you take the necessary time to adapt to various sounds on a guitar, it is also in my opinion, the most difficult

" Awesome!"

Roland GR-55GKPublished on 09/20/12 at 12:45
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
NOTICE WITH LOW GK3B
All connections are possible (only guitar pickups, microphones, guitars + mic GK or GK pickup only).
The pedal offers separate outputs for synth parts and guitars.
For the guitar output, with or without modeling.
To put it simply, everything is customizable.

Important: GR-55 save 10 configurations of guitars, and either guitar or bass. Knowing that the microphones are calibrated differently from one guitar to another, it is a very interesting point.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is simple, but since everything is customizable, you can spend hours to resolve, it is an advantage (to be able to control everything), but it is also a disadvantage, considering that we pass more time searching SOUND rather than play ....
However, the factory sounds are excellent, and we begin to find patches programmed sounds by other users.

The manual is clear (French version available for download), and very well explained.

An interface for PC and MAC is programming that is more user-friendly than the pedal itself.

GETTING STARTED

The hardest part is installing the micro hexaphonic. Before buying, make sure the guitar is compatible (space between the first and the micro bridge).
On my bass, I have not had any problems, although the space is really small, I installed the microphone (with mounting screws).
On my guitar SAMICK, no place between the micro and the bridge: require buying a new guitar to install micro GK3.

Once calibrated micro hexaphonic (very simple operation which is done only once), the use is simple.

The manual is very clear for all these operations.

I put 7 for the installation of micro might be easier if Roland worked with manufacturers making their guitars make adapters that would set the "caches" and microphones that would screw directly micro GK3.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months on my bass with a microphone GK3B.
I had never tried before.
The rendering is spectacular, extraordinary gameplay.
No lag between what I play and what I listen to.

What I love most: the ability to open tuning without detuning the guitar. We can transform the low 4 strings 5 ​​string provided it does not need the G string (example: Another Brick in the Wall to be played with a D major chord on SI -> SI-tuning MI -LA-RE).

For now, there is nothing I do not like ...

The quality / price is very reasonable compared to what you offer this product.

I remake that choice without hesitation!

I'm waiting for my new guitar GK3 up my microphone, and I will give a new notice with the guitar.

Rolang is now at a super guitar synth pedal that combines well-produced sounds and synth sounds to guitar (telecaster, strato, lespaul, acoustic, etc..), Mixing the two is interesting and realistic.

The manual is pretty clear.

An excellent guitar synth pedal that offers great possibilities for guitarists.
The factory sounds are very correct and setting his people we reach good results.
