programmable guitar preamp transistor 80s, MIDI implementation, with the very famous HUSH noise-gate.
It has two knobs for the settings, a knob to settle the AGX (Automatic Gain expansion) threshold, and a knob for the output level.
It is good to note that the PRO GAP has a 4-band parametric equalization.

It is true that the racks are usually reputed rocktron quite complex to use, at least if one has not understood the logic behind it.
on the other hand, this one is rather intuitive to settle. Note also that it is "only" a distortion .. and not a multi-effect rack factory-to-gas ..
on the other hand, of intuition, you still have time to get the desired sound. Indeed, the parametric EQ allows for a huge variety of sound, so it can be quite long and detailed.
So that's where it becomes surprising.
I cheeks almost as metal, and this rack rocks!
I had bought out of curiosity, and what a slap!
Well of course it's old school 100%, that's why I like it also ..
I'm not talking cleans sounds I've never taken the time to experiment.
But for the distortion, we'll crunch, the (very) large distortion through the right lead. Thanks to the parametric EQ, you can get sounds really different, it is very surprising, this rack is versatile.
Let us not forget that there are factory presets Steve Lukather and Allan Holdsworth, ca is a guarantee of quality.
I use a Rocktron Velocity power amp and a Rocktron or Intellifex Multivalve and jackson guitars, the sound is really 80/90 's death, especially with seymour duncan, lead warm and bleeding!
The system cuts off all signal AGX Lorqui you stop playing. Once properly adjusted, all your stuff is absolutely silent during the dead time and other silences, it's great practice, and especially does not alter the signal (provided of course not to push the settings to their limits).
Recently coupled to the simulator HP and a Rocktron Multivalve lamp, I sound even more possibilities.
I use it now for 3 years, bought on ebay by chance at € 60.
It replaced a Pod XT Live. The PRO GAP has brought the authentic sound I was looking for.
I test the Voodu Valve, spewing a more modern, but still in the same spirit.
Quality / price ratio super (rack findable in € 80/100).
As you can see I love it because it's not the marshall or fender of man in the world. It is rare and especially amazing for her age.
I remake that choice again and will definitely do it again if I find a cheap OCCAZ of (in case mine was dead, after 30 years .. life ... even when ..)
To summarize, a lover of rock, hard rock, heavy metal and thrash metal for years 80/90 's, go to your eyes closed!
