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

    UTILIZATION

    The effects are customizable, manual can help

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

    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 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.

    Digital multi-effects rack. (See doc builder ^ ^)

    UTILIZATION

    Manual clear enough.
    Interface with 2 wheels double (coaxial) notched quite handy but the outer rings fall in the harbor after a while (on mine anyway) and then it becomes a mess to configure.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I used a whole mesaboogie TriAxis and 50/50 plus a Marshall cabinet 1922. I had plugged into the effects loop of the Triaxis (mono send, stereo return) and was controlled by midi THRU (presets synchronized between the preamp and the multi purpose).

    Quality effects not too bad but the A / D and D / A are quite rotten (I suspect also the audio output stage). So its clear we lose a lot of momentum.

    Practice for the stage but forget the studio (it really degrades too the sound of the amp).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have used it for 8 years before selling my entire mesa. It has served me well but I confess that I would buy not the same.

    Since I bought a mesa Mark IV combo and I connect a POD (line6) on the effects loop. Less variety of sounds but better (best converters too).

    Rack, good stuff, for me it's a bit complicated, need to look at the record .. At the same time I am fan of plug and play and this time I screwed;) The knobs are a bit fragile, it must be very careful. 99 factory presets, some of which are irrelevant. Be careful to select the MIDI pedal according to what is intended.

    UTILIZATION

    Okay, you still have to look at the record, but honestly it's complicated.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Given the multitude of effects of the rack, the sounds are good bills and you have to be very difficult to note down the multi-effects.

    I attach also a Fender Telecaster in standart tuning its clear that I am entirely satisfied with the same type of effects.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price, it seems that the value for money is more than adequate.

    nice module

    TC Electronic G-MajorPublished on 12/11/11 at 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 findi…

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.

    On the effects, I suggest you look at the site because there is a certain amount of effects!

    UTILIZATION

    the general config is quite simple and the manual is clear.
    Editing effects is quite complex at first, but you can really treat the effects must take your time ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    like all the effects boxes, there's good and not so good ...
    some effects are not super effective (eg octaves, compressor ...) but we will say that the good effects account for 80% and it is the most widely used;)

    some effects are usable with a pedal not included (wha wha, whammy ...)

    But overall it's a great device in terms of quality effects.

    I use it for over 5 years I bought used Audiofanzine thanks to this site, it is right for personal use I ask I'm very happy and if I had the choice again I would do it again eyes closed.
    I advise against by the pedal G-minor because no matter how small it is not very functional ...

    - The g-major offers common effects (reverb, time limit, chorus, flange), cool effects (whammy, octave filter), and two dynamic (comp and gate).
    - No qualo.
    - It is equipped with analog inputs and as symtriques digital sp-dif.
    - Two MIDI jacks allow connection of a pdalier MIDI and make it possible upgrades of the OS.
    - Be careful, you can not erase the presets or make MIDI mapping!

    UTILIZATION

    - Operation is easy enough, the publisher and modofication presets and fairly intuitive for every effect, there are a lot of paramtres accessible.
    - The original manual silent in English in my case, but it is the site of tlchargeable tc (they were not fouls on that!).

    - The original manual silent in English in my case, but it is the site of tlchargeable tc (they were not fouls on that!).
    - Great flexibility if they have a good pdalier noon (fc-200 for example).
    can then load pRSET recess, but also have a boost (solo practice), a single preset dclench any effect (as when using a series of pedals), use of expression pedals (4 max: ex whammy, volume, mix rev, delay mix ...).

    SOUND QUALITY

    - The effects are good quality, even if the color tc lgrement the original sound.
    - Minor complaint: the sound effects with less output level with the bypass!
    - The reverbs and delays are nice, also the modulations, the compressor could be less simplistic, the noise crachouille a little "end of her." Personally, I do not use it, I like my breath is Sans-amp!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good multi-effects, but mostly good value qualitprix trs!
    I use it for over a year and I am satisfied, I had other multis, but I admit I t sduit by the quality and number of effects on offer and especially its FLEXIBILITY.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Excellent quality as long as I can jug. I'm not used to place a reverb before a Tagus power but we must admit that it is blowing, trsralistes. A noise gate superfluous because one can not filter the noise, but in time we shall adopt a strangled to play. The compressor is a lightweight can but adapted a guitar to give him a bump attack. It tends to produce some effects of noise in the 2000Hz +-fairly noticeable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Buy all the effects of this quality in Casing spar s'avrerait much more expensive over the g_major allows CONTRL of most effects pedals with an expression!
    I've had a few days and I am sduit cot by his easy, complete and clever (what gear EUROPEN)
    For me an excellent qualitprix.

    Nothing more than the other view, except the EQ paramtrique prsence a noise gate in the section OS since version 1.25. No effects loop, too bad.

    UTILIZATION

    Not what you made more intuitive, like stuff. It can be DIFFERENT types of chorus, but then follow a dozen paramtres for that chorus. I still have the doc in the corner when I hack, no way I remmorer the usefulness of some of these parameters, or fawn string effects.

    Something good, tap tempo (Submitted on all multi modern, by the way).

    A ct of a, when he finally understood that there is an expression pedals (super hard with a Rocktron HEX MidiMate a couple), we can assign modif Real Time el quite simply, as any multi noon. Mouaif.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Bypass the sound is really a volume lev against the effects with volume. Irritating.
    More irritating, I find that the G Major's really my color: crtage like a high pass filter, it is rendered more dull, less than dynamic ...

    I do not really like reverb, which also deaden the sound a bit (must be me who has the wrong RULES). The pitch shifter section, which I replaced with a whammy pedals bte, much more efficient. Wha the ridiculous, as is often the multi. The noise gate stupid and inefficient.

    The chorus is quite nice ditto the delays, the flange is ok, never used the EQ and compressor.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Mouaif is a multi trs good for that price, but rflexion, I buy only what pluttd m'intresse in parliaments spars I only use the wah (none of the G Major, and replaces it with a Morley), the octave / whammy (zero on the G Major, and replaced by a Digitech), the tuner (and no one replaced by Korg), chorus, sometimes the delay, and noise gate (no, I will replace it with a Rocktron).
    A knowingly buy!
    But many excellent effects / price!
