I Bought it from KTJ music, for my band. Paid $350.
The way you can create your own hypermodels by combing high quality effects with many amp and cab models. The different effects and all the options. Very easy to use. A great guitar effects processer with many capabilities.
To me, the drums are too quiet when playing with the guitar. I don't like the knobs. You have to turn some effects up really loud to be able to hear them enough, and then some of them you have to turn way down to keep from blowing the AMP.
Very sturdy and well built. Great and rugged.
A great all-around effects processer. You can virtually get almost any kind of sound off of it. It looks very complicated, but it is suprisingly easy. Many, many options for such a small piece of metal and plastic.
I've had Digitech's GNX-2 for about three months now. I purchased it from www.musiciansbuy.com for approx. $450 (although I understand they are now offering an even better deal on it). I previously had an SGX-2000 rack unit which I've had for almost ten years, but wanted to get something more current and, after doing some comparisons with the POD and others, decided this was the best product.
This unit is very customizable. Some may want something with less features but this unit lets you do most anything. Distortions can be created either from preset emulations that can be tweaked, or by dialing in your own gain/level combinations for various amp model types. The pedal and preset footswitches all are very intuitive and convenient, and of course all the other effects are added in too. Finally, with its included software, you can share created presets via the internet.
I've come to the conclusion that there is no unit that will give you every conceivable sound that you might want from time to time. I do believe, however, that this multi-effect pedal comes closest to providing the greatest range and the best value too.
It's a solid unit -- well built. Steel, except for footswitches, although even they seem solid. I wrap it in a towel and throw it in a gig bag. No concerns at all about its durability.
I've been very pleased with this purchase. There may be some other setups out there that might better provide the exact sound I might want at a given moment in time. But for the greatest variety and great sounding effects, I think the GNX series is the way to go. I think I made a good choice and enjoy using this for all my playing needs.
Should not exagr it's not professional. I do not understand those who put 10. It's good to have small sounds at home but finds herself limit. Using multi-effect for 5 years I started a little know what effects and quickly apperoit of these defects. It's good but it's far from being top. Evidamment for the price should not esprer a pro hardware type. It's good to start
It is very practical and very easy to use but finds herself in limited qualities of sound and A / D and D / A. Otherwise the output SPDIF malgrs it causes big crackements on my sound card now gives his very correct. Nevertheless this is still a fairly correct price quality ratio.
In this bike he already has everything a guitarist needs!
This machine emulates amps "legendary", it simulates the amplifier stage and the speakers (I do not know how ... but enough). An original function allows to "morph" between amp and speaker setup, crazy!
This is a pedal for selected 4 presets / patches and also has a control pedal / expression. The latter is configurable: one effect parameter as SPEED chorus can be assigned to him!
Oh, and then you can order the change via MIDI pacth this is good for different types of benefits. New (RP500/1000 or other ...) do not have MIDI connectors. I think even you can order parameters via MIDI I think.
The configuration is simple: we must re-read the manual. With some practice it then rolls but it is really not the kind of machine "fun", it nan ah!
In the manual, it is not only necessary, it must be preserved (attention. ...) and we must learn to read between the lines sometimes but hey, with a little time and perseverance, I am happened (lol)!
Editing sounds ultimately moult after re-reading the manual and a little practice, is quite easily. However, the publication of two channels RED / GREEN times, requires a re-reading the manual because there are small manipulation to know by heart and which are not obvious!
So here we touch the heart of the matter!
This machine is repulsive, it is not easy but sounds: ouy, ouy, ouy! It's heavy: the factory presets are not all usable but they provide a basis for customization and when you get to set your sound, I swear to you it is a pleasure to play!
The USER memory is not huge, I do not know how we use patch memoir that must be e ^ 4 * 8 in the bank I think or less, so really funny side to the latest machinery but hey, it is perhaps a decade that I have and that I play with and I have not been limited by the number of impact USER!
I do not know whether the amp simulations are faithful because, since I find I do not have to buy my amp! Seriously I 5150 I sold an old marshall lamp, an old Peavey 112 (memory) and others but I have sold!
I put the time but when I started to know how to correctly adjust the sound mixers and ben I have not reconnected my guitar on an amp ... sniff!
As I have a copy guitar CORT Les Paul tampered 2 DiMarzio PAF have replaced the original, Japanese Hamer with the original pickups, a Fender Tele MSM (market over which model) ...
I've had a (very) long time, probably since its release!
At the time I scoured all the stores in search of such a multi FX pedal, so it was of Roland, the Korgs etc ... I do not know what was good but the usual !
But even since then and until today, I regularly abandon testing of new pedals and I think the Digitech, in terms of sound even fine for me: I like the sound of Digitech (lol)! In terms of functionality, I am on my model because the latter have GNX2 TOO opportunities. I do not know if it is possible to exploit all. I re-discovered from time to time opportunities to mine, I can not imagine those new machines they released!
When I see the price at which it is sold today I think that the youngsters really are lucky this is crazy 100 € the thing! IF you are a beginner and you do not have many rounds DARK, no need to buy the latest RP500/1000, it is useless, buy secondhand already for even if you like the sound then you can buy one of these bikes with 1000iers of PRESETS, buy a GNX2 3 or 2000, for example you will not be disappointed.
