MGR/Gunkster's review"Korg AX1000G"

Korg Ax1000g
I bought this unit from a local music store, I read about it on the internet and wanted a multi-effect processor, I paid $230.00 used.

The different delay effects are amazing, the built in tuner is very handy. The construction is very solid, you get quite a few distortion and cabinet configuations, I think this unit is well worth the money!

The only downfall to this unit is you can't use the compressor with the different distortion modes.

Built like a tank!

Great unit, well worth the money 8 out of 10.

MGR/nappyhead's review"Korg AX1000G Multi-Effects Pedal"

Korg Ax1000g
I won the ax1000g on e-bay( in the box and brand new ) for $200. i had been looking for a descent multi-effect pedal because I like to be able to create a wide variety of moods with my music. I had tested alot of pedals from zoom, digitech, and boss and thought the digis looked and sounded too plastic like. I was really impressed with the boss GT-3 but didn't wavt to spend over $300.

The ax1000g is overall a fine pedal, sonic-wise and aesthetic-wise. It's extremely user friendly- if you can tweak knobs on individual stomp boxes you can figure out how to create the right sound for any atmosphere. The tremolo is wide ranging, the different pedal types are usefull, beautiful delays and im in love with the filtron and autowah.

I'm pretty much stuck with this pedal and I still haven't explored all its possibilities, but I have seen the Boss GT-3 now for $300 and i think it would be worth it to spend an extra $100. I'm annoyed with things like the lack of parameters for the wah pedal(none). You can't use certain modulation effects with certain pedal effects, and you can't change the chain order of the effects.

Korg still has great a strong sense of beauty in the design of their products and this holds true for this processor. It has a very sturdy metal chasis and it looks classy.

I do somewhat regret buying this when i saw it for $100 dollars cheaper than usual on e-bay. I like it, but I don't love it. I think I'd rather get the GT-3 if i could- it has a variety and better wahs that would make it worth it.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Korg AX1000G"

Korg Ax1000g
I bought this unit new at a local music store. I like small shops of this type because there is more emphasis on the individual. Those huge chain gear factories don't need my hard earned dollar to make the rent, whereas my $300.00 may carry a little more weight with a small store.



I was immediately impressed with the instant gratification i got from this unit. Unlike many processors, filled with impress the other guys in the store usless presets, i got some great sounds from this unit right out of the box.Fully half the presets are imminently useable, and with a little tweaking, you can get more sounds than you will ever need. Using a mid-priced over the ocean strat-o-copy and a small decent quality solid state amp, I was able to get everything from Godzilla-stomps-Tokyo crunch to Albert Lee chicken-pickin' clean from the presets alone. In my live rig I plug into the effects loop return on my Marshall head and proceed to peel some scalps back.



On the debit side, the manual accompaning the unit could be a tad more comprehensive. It took a bit of guesswork even after i read the manual to get what I wanted out of the unit. However, considering what you get for the money, this is a small gripe at best, as the processor itself isn't that complicated.



Durability wise, this thing is built like a tank and has a really solid feel underneath your foot, which is good, because a big ole corn-fed southern boy like me could put a hurtin' on a cheaply built floor processor. Seriously, i go 225lbs and i can stand on the thing. 'nuff said.



Bottom line, if u want pro sounding effects, but don't have a rockstar's gear budget, give this 'lil puppy a spin. I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

Analog multi effect pedal.

We find all the classic effects, various simulations of amps and speakers.

UTILIZATION

Simple enough for someone who is used to this kind of product configuration.

The manual is necessary for the novice.

With this one in hand, everything is very simple.

With this pedal you can create and record your own sound banks and you can switch between four banks at once: very handy if you go from one sound to another within a song.

It is also possible to use other switches: to turn on or off each of the 5 selected "effects" (Amp type speaker + 3 banks with their dedicated effects such)

SOUND QUALITY

The preset banks are rotten, but I think it is very often the case: it does not matter to you to create your own banks.

Modification and editing combined effect is not difficult and we get very good results. (You just take the time to read the manual)

All effects are satisfactory: good enough for a public does not differentiate between these sounds there and sounds obtained with much more expensive pedals ... unless there is an experienced guitarist in public ;-)

OVERALL OPINION

I used this pedal for 3 years, before turning to individual pedals.
I plugged it directly into a PA (pass course 500).

I left because I wanted to build me a very specific sound. I now play on a tube amp and pedal gives a certain "color" that I no longer wanted.

But I've never resolved to sell: it is a good Swiss Army knife that can advantageously help me.

Pros: seems a rock solid

Sounds are very clean.

The -: The "spring reverb" is not a supply, though the reverb is very good though.

I bought 100 euros to a friend who had himself bought 3,000 French francs twentieth century :-) (about 450 euros)

I would say that today the right price would be between 60 and 80 euros? ... 50 euros is a bargain; 100 euros exaggerated ...

I do it again without hesitation that choice.

Bob l'éponge's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

The effects are diviss into 5 parts:
-Drive-amp: 9 distos (classic, mtal, fuzz ...), a compressor and an acoustic simulation
-Cabinet: 11 amp simulations
-Modulation: 11 effects (two choruses, two phaser, flanger, tremolo, octave, auto-wah etc ...)
-Pedals: effects foot control, volume, vox wah, talk, ring modulator, pitch shifter etc. .....
-Atmosphere: 4 reverbs, two delays, two echoes and reverb + delay 3

The "+" very useful! : Mtronome tuner, possibility to record 8 seconds and put them in a loop, possibility to record (a from to in) 8 16 seconds (depending on mode) to slow down then what t enegistr to such a solo work too fast, noise gate

There are 36 "sounds" prenregistrs banks in 9 4 "sounds", and there 36banques free to use (is that clear? Lol)

Input jack
Two output jack as a mono output and one that seems to be srro (I never use personal)
A headphone mini jack format so no need adapter is very handy!
Between a "in the" mini jack for connecting a source collection outdoor style mini disc, cd player etc. ....

Nb: an on / off button would be welcome t!

UTILIZATION

It's simple hyper hyper!
Y has knobs "everywhere" so it's like on an amp!
Chanque party effects' drive amp, modulation ....) is selected by turning the knob adquate and each sound configuration, there 5potentiometres smaller, and those who are solicited according to the purpose, are a illuminate a small light cot so we know immediately where to turn to act on the sound.
And for distos, the buttons are "drive" "level" "treble" "middle" "bass" is simple
In addition each party effect is assigned a "button" (the same used to navigate through the sound banks) that is pushed to trigger the effect in question (for the pedals, the Action takes place at the pedals that is pressed hard to engage the effect in question)
The set is really very clear, we understand very quickly using the mess: p

To edit a sound? Easy!
After his last found according to the combination of effects, simply press the "write" is chosen which bank you want to put another pressure on "write" and basta! nomer and the preset, there is a button ajacent "rename"

The manual is clear enough, but between us, it will not be too useful except to the description of EFET

So for now almost a no-fault taken care of the price of the machine!

SOUND QUALITY

As against this may be where it all thickens a bit! ;)
Considering the price will not wait for the moon for sure!
Effects, some doubles are not necessary for my taste, two phaser, chorus two, yeah, one more than enough of each!
Flange, without a lot more, it lacks a bit of presence, especially in the light
Tremolo (sinusoid rounded) very musical, but not tip top low speed
Pitch Shifter, very nice! it must always have the use (it made me great service, for "My Iron Lung" by Radiohead for example)
The auto wah, blah .....
The octave, not bad, but a little too "explode" the amp, too low, mixing the right mix wet / dry
And two effects that "useless", the filter and the delay mod ....

Most of these effects are controlled in the "pedals", wah wah, pitch shifter, tremolo, chorus / flanger etc. ....
Perso j'aime bcp the sound of the wah wah, but it is very special and not pleasing in gnral bcp!

The reverbs are pretty good, the atmosphere are returned, in "hall" c very "spacial" (blunder to the dosage;) ) and the method gives a cot room very intimate sound, I like it.
Overall c very classic two Dlay, a Stereo, and a ping pong, which means that the RPET is left then right etc ...
A very interesting echo, "echoplus" c simulation of analog echo which simulates the loss of dfintion sound with each repetition as if ct with the old tape delay

The amp models are perhaps the weakest part of the machine
Two or three are really usable in my opinion, the others having a really his stick.
They will be very useful especially in home studio, for live recording, or a headphone directly on the multi purpose

The strength of ax1000g I think is the distos!
They have a fucking potato! At that price impressive c!
However they proved somewhat progressive and unconvincing a low drive. Forget the crunch with it, even simulating lamps
C his thing the big distortion that hard!

Note: It will not be possible to use the same time a reverb (or delay) and the recorder of sentences, same thing between the effects of "modulation" and those foot control (logic due to the presence of a single processor for each "style" of sounds)
In the end my effects prfres:
Distos "Mtal dist" drive 8, 7-8 treble, middle bass 1-2 and 6-7 ca hard! The "brit stack" is terrible too!
Compression and simulation of acoustic guitar are really quick to forget the +!

Simulation of 3 amps are worth a look "Modern 4X12", "4X12 Vintage" and "Black 2X12 panel"
the rest, blah ....

Effects, my favorites are black phaser, tremolo (named Textreme) and pitch shifter

Pedals, I do not use never or almost, volume (essential) and wah wah sparingly

Ambience, room, hall, and especially especially surout ECHOPLUS is huge! Let ring the notes and at the same time turn the drive is huge! (Very interesting results with a feedback control)

Dtest my effects! (Especially the first two!)
acoustic simulation and compression tube od Filtron, Ring modulator ....

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 years as repeating, that live and home studio (I think for that use all the same to me nab a Tonelab)
Most: Simplicity inexpensive, good distos, original effects (echoplus)
The -: effects duplicate the sounds of some leaves adsirer
The ratio Q / P is excellent in my opinion (bought the 1990F era)
The exprience with this choice I would do well because I doubt that concurrency can align with a Q / P the same!
