TC Electronic G-MajorPublié le 12/11/11 à 21:38
The TC GMajor is a digital rack unit. It can't be edited through a computer. This effects unit is a combination of reverb, delay, harmonizer/octavizer, vibrato, chorus, phaser, flanger, and almost any other effect except for distortion. There is no MIDI connection.


UTILIZATION

Getting through these sounds can be a huge pain sometimes, simply because there are about a thousand presets to choose from. Each preset ranges from a basic effect (reverb, phaser, vibrato) to a complex combination of effects and algorithms. The manual does a decent job of explaining how to program and shift through all of these various effects. However, it is a chore for anyone who isn't dedicated to finding......

The manual does a decent job of explaining how to program and shift through all of these various effects. However, it is a chore for anyone who isn't dedicated to finding buried treasures.


SOUND QUALITY

I have only used this with guitar. Using it with a bass or keyboard would produce some truly freaky sounds, as running the guitar through this thing is enough to bewilder just about anyone. Some of the effects that this thing produces are jaw-dropping. Some settings produce wild harmonization’s and polyphonies that repeat in an ambient fashion from just a few randomly plucked notes. Some settings will harmonize, even pitch correct, every note that you play and continually loop sounds and replace them in a manner similar to a Steve Reich piece. Some sounds produce gorgeous, orchestral multi octave washes of sound that are very soothing. Playing two notes on some of these settings will produce an ominous drone that sits in the bottom of your stomach. For all of these wildly innovative effects, there are a ton that are wild and foreign but have no real practical application, which makes it frustrating to find the good ones.


OVERALL OPINION

I love the wide variety of textures that can be easily created using this machine. I hate having to sift through a million lackluster or annoying settings to find the good ones. I think that this is a ridiculously expensive piece of gear, and that anyone willing to shell out the money for it had better realize how frustrating and time-consuming it may be. However, some of these sounds are very difficult to recreate elsewhere, and some of the ambient textures would be very useful for someone who makes ambient or very spacey music. I'm sure there's a niche of customers who would adore this product, I'm just not sure I'm one of them.

UTILIZATION

Easy setup. Very clear manual. Editing sounds is very easy. Only major problem: the controls are not reliable after a while. That's why TC Electronic launched a new version equipped with standard controls.

SOUND QUALITY

Very good effects: TC Electronic always made high-quality effects. No comments. They are excellent.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for nine years. You can really assess the quality of a product after many years of use.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for nine years. You can really assess the quality of a product after many years of use.
In spite of its high quality, the G Major has the following cons:
The controls are not very practical to edit parameters: the values spring and you'll have to turn back the controls to find the right value! Grade: 0/20!
After nine years of use the display has started to show some faults. It gets on and off, and on, etc. It also freezes... And it's a huge problem since the display is needed for all settings.

I give it 5/10 because the sound quality and the effects are great. But it's not acceptable that a device made for on stage applications has such problems...

How long will the life of the G Major 2 be? It's too early to answer the question. It's a pity that the manufacturer didn't equip the new version with a USB connector... Bad!

Has the effect of first use. Included EQ that can be useful.
SPDIF digital connection

UTILIZATION

The effects are customizable, manual can help
Take a shot at, nothing fancy though

SOUND QUALITY

The effects themselves are fine, pretty delays, there is everything you need.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it sporadically for 1 year.
The new price is not really high and secondhand is very affordable.
Warning knobs extremely fragile, especially not easily replaceable weak point desired device.

To tell the truth, convertos are really crap; connected in front of a good amp, it's really a disaster, saturated, but its clear, the dynamic is completely ruined. We really feel that the......

Warning knobs extremely fragile, especially not easily replaceable weak point desired device.

To tell the truth, convertos are really crap; connected in front of a good amp, it's really a disaster, saturated, but its clear, the dynamic is completely ruined. We really feel that the Mesa is an emulation of outgoing line 6 Pod on PC speakers.
It's a shame, the effects are not bad at all but the only solution is to connect the g major in a parallel effects loop, so if possible, allowing some of the dry signal (a large part if you do not want to be disappointed ..), the wet being so well yucky. Without that, as said before the sound is completely gun. It is true that the temporal effects should - "normally" - to be placed after the preamp but what about a good example eq.

Brief in conclusion, I do not understand what kind of product: good effects, ruined by lousy conversions. Aston Martin with an engine Twingo. I think the quality / price comparison with a stock pedal-Analog is necessary before buying such a beast.
But this is only my humble opinion that is only my opinion.
