Digitech Artist 2120

DigiTech GSP2120 ArtistPublished on 07/31/03 at 15:00
I bought this a few years ago for about $1000. I was looking for something other then stompboxes to give me some good effects. Now i realize that not everything in life is that easy. The 2120 does make some stuff easier how you can program patches and switch not just a effect on and off but actually program patches to the floor board. So im gonna get a k-7 and some more stomp boxes to add to what the 2120 lacks in on sound.

I like how you can create a sound for what part of your song, and then say another sound for a chorus of the same song and just tap one button and switch between 2 or more completely different effect chains and settings. Programmable foot pedal is also a plus. And...…

So im gonna get a k-7 and some more stomp boxes to add to what the 2120 lacks in on sound.

I like how you can create a sound for what part of your song, and then say another sound for a chorus of the same song and just tap one button and switch between 2 or more completely different effect chains and settings. Programmable foot pedal is also a plus. And the design of the case, nobs and user interface.

Okay heres where i get nasty. #1 if you gonna state that heavier artists are using your equipment like NIN, Korn and various other metal musicians make sure your distortion lives up to that title. Becuase the solid state distortion sucks. And the tubes suck too. I like my set up to sound like fear factory. And without an additional boss metal zone that would be completely impossible. So if your more into clean sounding effects and light distortions this is a great piece and crystal clear. If your looking to go nuts wiht brutal metal the distortion is lacking and adding too many effects at once in this unit is gonna give you a problem. The manual sucks, very very very vague leaving you puzzled and questioning what hey were trying to say.

Solid. No problems at all with quality issues. But then again its a rackmount piece. How much abuse can it possible be given? It sits in a case and the nobs get turned, plugged in and turned on..lol But yea solid metal casing, metal nobs (sometimes dont respond right if your moving them too slowely to fine tune something) floor board is common to any of the digitech floor boards.

Okay like i said before, if your doing ya know jazz,country,rock,r&b or anything on the lighter side of music this piece is wonderful. Now if your gonna go alternative styles of music like industrial,metal,death metal,hardcore, or anything that is heavy you might wanna invest in some other pieces that are giving you the sound you want before you add this into the mix. Right now im gonna invest in some more stomp boxes and then mix it wiht this piece if that doesnt work you might be able to buy it from me on ebay.

I HAD PURCHASED THIS ITEM AFTER PLAYING THOUGH ONE IN A BAKERSFIELD MUSIC STORE WHILE ON THE PROWL TO FIND SOME GEAR FOR MY RACK. I HAD READ ABOUT THEM IN MUSICIANS FRIEND CATALOG AND WAS INTRIGUED. I WAS ALREADY PLAYING THROUGH A DIGITECH PRO 21GSP THAT WAS UPGRADED WITH A LEGEND CHIP. BUT I WANTED THE TREMELO SOUND WITHOUT HAVING TO ADD EXTRA FLOOR PEDALS. AFTER PLAYING THIS "COOL LITTLE BEAUTY" I HAD TO HAVE IT,BUT I COULDN'T AFFORD TO SPEND THE $949.00 FORM MUSICIANS FRIEND. SO I TURNED TO E-BAY AND FOUND SEVERAL. I STARTED BIDDING ON ONE UNTIL I COULDN'T AFORD TO GO ANY MORE. I HIT ON ONE FOR $700.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

I WAS ALREADY PLAYING THROUGH A DIGITECH PRO 21GSP THAT WAS UPGRADED WITH A LEGEND CHIP. BUT I WANTED THE TREMELO SOUND WITHOUT HAVING TO ADD EXTRA FLOOR PEDALS. AFTER PLAYING THIS "COOL LITTLE BEAUTY" I HAD TO HAVE IT,BUT I COULDN'T AFFORD TO SPEND THE $949.00 FORM MUSICIANS FRIEND. SO I TURNED TO E-BAY AND FOUND SEVERAL. I STARTED BIDDING ON ONE UNTIL I COULDN'T AFORD TO GO ANY MORE. I HIT ON ONE FOR $700.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

THE SOUNDS ON THIS ARE REALLY COOL. PLUS I LIKED THE FACT THAT I COULD KEEP MY SOUND IN THE TUBE REALM. I HAD PLAYED FOR YEARS SOLID STATE,AND WASN'T HAPPY WITH THE WAY MY SOUND WAS COMING OUT SO I GOT RID OF THE TWO COMBO AMPS, AND BOUGHT A PEAVEY 60/60 STEREO RACK AMP. HEAVEN AGAIN; SINCE I STARTED PLAYING WHEN TUBES WERE THE ONLY THING AVAILABLE.
DUAL DISTORTION PATHS (TUBE & SOLID STATE) GAVE ME AN EDGE THAT BLEW AWAY MY BUDDIES! I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE MANY PRESETS THIS UNIT HAD TO OFFER.I COULD PLAY THE SURF SOUNDS AGAIN.OR SOME NASTY BLUES,COUNTRY,OR MODERN ROCK. SOUND LIKE BRIAN MAY FROM QUEEN;IF WANTED TO.OR BB KING. NAME IT I COULD DO IT.

I WASN'T TOO THRILLED ABOUT HAVING TO MAKE A SHORT PATCH CORD TO CONNECT THE DIGITECH'S INPUT FROM THE FRONT. ALL THE REST OF MY CONNECTIONS ARE IN THE REAR. NOR WAS I PLEASED WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO RANDOMLY ACCESS PATCHES ON THE FLY LIKE MY GSP. HEAR THAT DIGITECH! ALSO THE MANUAL IS TOO VAGUE.

EVERYTHING ELSE ON THIS UNIT IS A MAJOR PLUS. EASY ACCESS IN THE REAR. LOTS OF CONTROLS ON THE FRONT PANEL.JUST WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A HIGH PRICED PROCESSOR.PLUS THE PURPLE FACE ADDS A LITTLE COLOR TO MY RACK.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WANTING TO BE ABLE TO CREATE THEIR OWN SOUND WITH ALL THE EFFECTS AVAILABLE IN THIS UNIT WITHOUT HAVING TO DO THE "FRED ASTAIR TOE TAP DANCE". AS ONE WOULD DO WITH STOMP BOXES. YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY IT FOR YOURSELF AND SEE.

OVERALL OPINION

As preamp, it is very accurate, we can get the big sound like 70's rock sound, we believe it ...
As multi-effects, it is complete, comprehensive, with the effects of very high quality.
Another advantage of this preamp: an 8-band equalizer for each channel (tube, solid state) + possibility to chain up to 6 other EQ with 2 parametric EQ and even a 31bandes (for mania) as it is called the égualisations that make the sound ...
