olivertender's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a Swiss Army knife"

DigiTech GNX4
classical effects, chorus reverb, wha wha, whammy, compressor, noise gate ...
amp simulation
8 audio mono or 4 stereo
Integrated drum machine
mp3 player, audio loops
edited via pc
Robust pedal well thought although not the prettiest


fairly simple to use and edit sounds at
especially several operating modes including a rather nice, as if someone had chained effect pedals.

the manual, you just take the time to read


effects chorus, delay, reverb is very nice
the cd of the supermodel optional Oto a range of simulation models.
It's still numerical simulations but with some adjustments, it sounds pretty good.
when recording is not bad either, you can make small models that sound good.
practice and also to play when you're alone.


I month, I connected directly to a good monitor speakers, the sound is very clean.

it is the only pedal that has all these functions at the same time

simulation, effects, 8-track looper, drum machine .., mp3 player, memory card

sounds of batteries are not bad and we can incorporate loops, midi files.

a short pedal for guitarists not wanting to spend more time with their computer mouse to make small recording, then everything is on hand at least the feet, hands remaining on the main guitar.

I got the fly, pedal optional functions for recording and cd of supermodell, (a real plus), 2GB memory card to save presets, loops, midi, mp3 and songs.

I am therefore very good seen all that can be done with., this is the only one with as many functions even if he starts to date a little.

besides, I do not understand that other manufacturers have not thought.
this is more expensive to buy everything separately and more profitable for them too.

ddn's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ugly, sorry"

DigiTech GNX4
A good old multi-effects floorboard format with an expression pedal. On paper it has functions is still not all together in competition: 8-track recording directly into the bike, jamman, audio interface to the PC via USB connectivity is impressive, and so on.

The pedal is metal as Russian tanks and endless knobs are notched an excellent idea. The expression pedal is well made, wide with a good race. The display is small but I am using that much of a AdrenaLinn, it does not bother me.

The effects are standard type modulation, reverb, delay, distos, etc.. and includes amp simulations + HP can theoretically very interesting to mix the sound of two amps through the "warp". The chain of effects is not changed and makes them delay and reverb at the end of the chain. Damage.

There is a PC editor very complete, very stable and very well done.

It's pure digital, there is a connection MIDI in / out but beware, the machine does not send any MIDI message and can only receive it!


The general configuration is as simple as on any multiple of the same type, rather more intuitive than a Boss GT and very obviously helped by the PC editor. Editing sounds is easy and you can download thousands (literally) of presets on the net. There is a particular sets of amplifiers called MFX supermodels supposed to emulate "real" all types of tube amps current, I tested it, and sets made by pros and distributed by Guitar World.

The manual is very well done, very clear, very complete.


Ben is the problem. The amp simulations are blowing like cattle, especially on the entry line. Digital sound effects / Mid whatever the position on which to put the speaker button off (in fact with a position it blows like crazy, on the other is suppressed and not dynamic).

Overall, the sound seems hollow, unconvincing especially in overdrive which is a major goal of the craft. That said I play mostly live to sound card for home recording and a Fender Champion 600, maybe on a big amp that sounds.

The effect settings are minimal and in my case perfectly inadequate: no reverse delay, no dosage dry / wet but only on the level of effect. Cons ago by an emulation of IPS and whammy that will please you if you like that sort here ... Why did not they put all the effects of the space station in place is a mystery ...

The direct recording on the bike is in bits 44khz/16 which is sufficient for use as a looper but very very light when used as a computer audio interface (the first is 96kHz/24bits Zoom G2). I read below that it is better than guitar rig, but it must relate to a version before 3.0, because now any serious computer simulation is clearly better in all areas.


I bought it used and sold 15 days later. I have long multis of all genres and amp simulation question the desktop Tonelab seems to me far ahead, question or zoom effects multis bosses are also far ahead, I do not even speak of separate pedals that are at light years, including those from digitech. What a bunch of chitterlings, why not have made a multi which incorporates the most excellent pedal instead of the brand to include only those who fashion ... I wanted to use it as multi jamman + + audio interface to replace my ToneLab, morality seen the size of the beast and quality rather than low sounds I'll buy a JamMan stereo and separate effects to complete my ToneLab.

Altogether a great idea that ended with a resounding flop.

Complete connectivity
Double amp simulation
Solid construction
Acceptable interface

Lamentable effects

DigiTech GNX4
There's even a BAR., Import MP3, 8-track .. ect ..


The RAS more ..

Just browse the module to realize that there is nothing complicated.

Manuel ok.


I blame the multi-effects, c is above all the modlisation ...

Before ... how was it? Now we need to be pre-rglages happy ..

C is just subjective ... Pass me this comment and focus on the "party" effects, well I have to rsigner one thing:

I am con trs to have sold ... a head shot and more (usually one and we regret achte .. right?)

Excellent chorus, reverb presets idem.Certains are quickly forgotten, but it was quick to find a few good patches on which his own sound sculpture ..


I got the a couple of months for distos I n d never emits opinion on the multi-effect since I see that on my Monster Metal ..

So .. level effects, modulations, I must admit that I do not feel comfortable when the day would have acquired another module at Digitech.

APRS guitar rig, well ... did all drle

If you squint pdalier on this, I can only encourage you to use it.

Éric's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
The effects are really good. Often almost identical to the pedals they are supposed emulated so no complaints.

Of course it is a digital technology that exceeds all but the Pod and others.

The sounds are editable via pc / mac?

Full connectivity architecture for this type of product.


For me the setup is far from prohibitive. And if only one knows just how to handle multi-effects is a snap.

I bought the little pedal for ease of use Looper.

I put 2GB in the foot!


The effects are very effective, very realistic.

I use them on all sound sources (guitars, basses, but also voice and keyboard).


I use it for 2 years now and it's fabulous.

It does not replace a tube amp but super good.

For cons, I do not plug in a guitar amp that already has a character. This is a multi-effects-loop - 8 tracks that I plugged into amp or PA system neutral.
On a good vieus roland JC120's delirium and Tech 21 Power Engine 60 is even better.
Quality / price ratio very good (especially when it is OCCAZ)
Yes I do it again this choice without hesitation!

ericsoho's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
See site digitech or prior reviews for a comprehensive list.
In any case it is very dense, though it lacks a percolator for the coffee break.


The handling is very fast for basic use: I connect, I play, I press the big buttons, it's lights flashing and noise, it's Christmas!
Then, reading the manual, very well done, effectively informs all the features of the machine, taking a little time at the beginning after we win a lot because everything becomes simple.
The use of sound editing software is remarkably simple and effective, necessary not to remain stuck his head between his knees to force to look into the camera.
Other features may appear limited: the multi-instance, do not expect to have all the features of a device solely dedicated to this but there is a great tool for creating and entirely satisfactory arrangement for someone one like me who has experienced the glory days of four tracks to audio cassettes ...


The sound quality is excellent when one is very familiar with the equipment that is used with: his guitar, his amp, the sound system, microphone, etc ... If you are looking for a Telecaster with a humbucker Ibanez is not surprising to find this somewhat obvious (although with the micro emulator and equalization is reached to obtain sounds slamming a lot). Similarly, the use of multitrack requires some knowledge in terms of frequency management, reverb, compression and more.
This device does what he asks, still need to know to make good his claim.
By the way, there are some very good tutorials on the home studio and recording techniques on this site.

I now have a condenser microphone (Apex 435, a low-end incredibly good at 60 euros, go see the reviews and believe them, this microphone is terrible) and I could push a little at the GNX4 preamp with the power supply 'phantom. It is very good, the converters are very effective, transparent and allow the micro speak, I get taken to the sounds of voices and acoustic guitars for a very high fidelity, including my classic with a slight reverb enhanced a touch of chorus, velvet! A great surprise that this mic preamp.


I own this GNX4 for ten days so I had to spend forty hours on it (well, besides, it's not a chair either ...)
I really like the clear side of the craft: every action has a definite result, ie one can work in a reasoned way by defining constraints, choices go on an adventure and lose a lot of time, for example, to create an accurate sound we know exactly what to do and what results can be obtained but again you really know your material and have some knowledge of elementary acoustic when you touch the sound design.
What I like least? Every son that is connected behind, but it's not really his fault ...
The value for money is unbeatable for the simple reason that there is no equivalent to this unit in other manufacturers, there are better multi-effects certainly, but not all the features of GNX4 (connectivity, phantom power for microphone, multitrack, still no coffee ...)
I would do without hesitation that choice, really. In fact I go back ...

Added 10/08/06
Having now toured widely as the possibilities of the GNX4 (apart from the function talk to me quite unnecessary) must be recognized that use home studio is not far from perfect, for me at all case. A good computer with a good monitoring coupled with the GNX4 and I have the perfect setup for my personal use: again, the technical work, making models with a more than impressed by performing a post-production on the signal type of download sequencer with VST effects. It's simple, it will go with me on vacation!

sergiogibson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
Hello, well I finally decided to put a notice, so that I do for the moment that the carry operation of Bignoux 50/100.
For details, totu has already been said more or less.

For my part, I find it super full, connectors etc. ...... very useful

I will speak here only for use without a PC, because I have not managed to connect properly.


Good for setup, better etr einitié to pedal, multi etc. .... because I do not see a novice get out, finally, at least use the potential of Bignoux, it is not complicated, but it is very complete, then the guy who already do not know what a flanger etc. ...... risu to get lost.

As against a person accustomed to, I can say that compared to a pro v amp this thing is very easy to mployment.

So for my part I find great, already we have to distinguish three modes

Recorder mode, which allows to register, or loop, or 8-track, it also launched the drum machine.
the recorder is very easy to use, the outputs can be configured as desired, for example it is possible to record the guitar raw apple while listening to the preset on what you are, then we can inject the raw guitar recording and choose the effects, amps etc. ... at leisure, making it a great tool to make a demo, but to settle his pedals with onions, choose pieces for each ideal settings etc. .......

It can also be recording the bar, or set the tempo of the song that was recorded, which has the effect can later select the drum pattern you want.

Then there's the part preset, good as the name implies it allows to set the spresets for now I just factory presets that I modified slightly to my amp has the classic saddapter 30.

Then comes the icing on the cake, the mode stompbox, stompbox mode actually allows you to select a preset, but the pedal hits the s5 preset selection, becomes dedicated to the pedals preset, you can choose between 3 Channel of amp, the pedal 2 can trigger the distortion (full choice of models), the pedal 3 is devoted to the effects, the delay to 4, 5 at the tap tempo, and all this is Settings, configurable as desired, for example you can set the pedal mod efugitif is supported Inrush ca, ca cut is released.

The manual is a manual designed for exemption from the user.


The good is subjective, for my part I think a lot soouvent bad sound, are due to misuse.

It should be noted that the factory presets are oriented mao finally was my opinion, because they are full of reverb and delay, I have two presets efois same each, one for the amp, one for mao .

Well I am disappointed by the a priori wha, compared to my AX10G, I can not find the same sound, but good remains to be explored, it may be better, but I have not found.

Otherwise, I would say that ca Sonen good to my ears, the amp simulation sound great with headphones, and my classic 30 ditto, for cons I have not yet found a clear sound as good as my old ax10g, but good to be said that instead of having a 3 amp setting there is a 20 ene, so I rather put it on my non good use as the Bignou.

I use either a Variax is a squier, both sound good, it magnifies the sound of the well Squier, same as on my classic 30's Bonnheure


J 'have been 1 month and a half

I love everything about this pedal

value for money is very good given the opportunities.

I do it again this choice

snake202's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
Hula effects er well I know the thing is baucoup it easier to tell you that I do not know what's missing. Whereas the number is enough, we never finished all operate correctly. Dtail for other opinions are explicit.


Absolutely everything is ditable using the PC, the effects at the preset amp simulation, but also the whole box has music etc ...

MIDI jack for headphones, amp or cabinet, Stereo, Mono ...

It is a pdalier

Really under the prices are simply monstrous CHARACTERISTICS!


Frankly THE FIRST time I got lost ... by using a preset I can not much. And then the dclic! I did an installation of five minutes and I came back and everything became easier! In fact once you capt What are DIFFERENT knobs (actually it is simple) while traveling and everything seems empty. Well there are still about buien dtails I understand half of the time but frankly it's still simple to use trs.

Concretely it is no more complicated than a simple effect pedals once you understand (: displays on the arrows to see the effect and once the AC knobs to walk like normal pedals)!

The notice is provided in English but French Vou will find a notice on the net! I have not opened the manual before 2 or 3 days, just for c'tait dtail technical function and I could not understand! Helpful but not essential if you have some jujote. Basically to get a hit in 10 minutes not need the manual but if you DSIR use more complex functions (with the particulirement memorie card and recording function) the manual can be used


I use a Squier Tele and a Fender amp afinity 65W! I really take my foot!
Level effects all have their usefulness to determine if there are good and the less it dpend what you want to play. Personally I'm pretty versatile when I find them all great!
Quality at beginners level I feel like its a movie type SF vaiseau space but once you know the right amount while making nikel!


I've had just over one week, and I am far from having been around!
It's really great to have all the effect to be in a same pdalier! not need to buy 3000 pedals! and really it is profitable to play at home!
In addition to work or even to have fun jam man options for loops or even the accompanying box fontion pace is really far from being a luxury! 30 sec to record a riff and I for 1 hour solo pard!
And if you do not like you can always play your own MP3 or the original track is a version without the guitar is on the net! And if you mind to settle yourself the effect of presets for each artist are also on the net!

Frankly I have not tried to model baucoup ... I think surmeent lack of objectification.

Report quality price! But my god try to buy the dixime of what he knows to spare and you will make your wallet exploded! Unbeatable!

I cross I remake that choice! in all this I recommend those who have enough money to invest! 500 new but I got it on ebay for 390 with nine really I jump at the chance

Roberto SongPop's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
Modlisation ditable amp (+), quality (-) connectivity complte!
Format pdalier (Attention has taken the dusts, under the feet!)


- Easy to use the first level.
- A good week of work, level + advanced & function complte use.
- Edition complte.

Ax manual "versatility" is tural, but with "omissions" (volunteers?) Registration limit: The machine can not save in the middle of the song:
It's back of the beginning of the song. Waste of time standard for a workstation!
It is not clear in the manual. The firmware is goodbye (v1.3)!


Effect and, in gnral a little "cheap", and much less trs aig big sound
the Boss GT-6 is a multi-effect pdalier which only has, but better.
Used with electric guitars (types Fender, Gibson, of quality (Godin LGX-SA, Charvel), electro-acoustic (Takamine EN10) & Electric Bass
+ Micro electro-static Behringer B2 Pro Studio.

The simulations are - compelling than the Boss GT-6 (I have one ...)
The sound is trs "ciselquot; (pjoratif, but objective ...)

The bass does not go into the mix, with Mollise. Through a Sansamp, c OK.
The voice goes well with a few presets.


10 days to use search.

Here's 10 days I tested the ultra-versatile pdalier on paper:
I try to give my impression objectively. I am 47 years and a lot of exprience
in this type of studio equipment, pedals, recording, ...
Many ATUT, but according to the famous proverb: "You get what you pay for ..."

For 480, we have a pdalier effect / modlisation fairly average,
- An 8-track recorder numrique but brid (see + below)
- Orders to toe! (Super !!!), an interface (surface CONTRL)
USB Audio / Midi works ... with no more bugs (when same-)
- A bote rhythms practice, but not duly (sounds blah ...)
- Software boring (like Cakewalk, Cubase SX trs away!)
But when same-usable and DDIS and optimized for the device.
- A JamMan Looper (Super!) Overdub & One Man Show, trs sympa!
- Finally, it does everything, but not all good!

But I do not regret my purchase, despite the "propaganda" east of Digitech.
As well s versatility has a price ...

jeffguitar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech GNX4
All in one multi-effects is there.
I have also been a year I paid dearly (the price at the end) but I have no regrets.

There is a plethora of effects, if you're lazy you load the sounds on the net directly without having to fiddle with, there has been, we play ...

I coupled this with a GR 20 and I make soundtracks of madness.

All this IS a STAGEPAS and that the ultimate weapon. He sampler, looping Zone, a clear sounds, it peutr connect a keyboard, a microphone ... There is even a talk box to take to Peter Frampton!

Good! Very good ...

The only downside .. The pots on the back ... Weaklings ... I have replaced a by a 'real' (that of the microphone).

The settings are quite simple but care must be taken at (the 'levels' for recording among others.

I think we need a little practice and sweat to extract the quintessence but after ... Happiness!
