You can go wrong owning a GNX4!!!!!
Like many I've tried various pieces of equipment looking to get a sound I like. Ok, add a few pedals and great, got the sound. Now I need a drummer... Okay start shopping for a drum machine.. Now we're up to a few pedals and a drum machine, cool! Oh wait, that piece really sounded good, i want to record that... start shopping for a 4 track and a mix down deck... Did i mention buying a spaghetti mess of cables? Now to run it into the computer to create the mp3.. oops, need software... You can try and run all of this thru your typical guitar amp, but be prepared for the headache.. Not to mention this setup isn't even close to portable, let alone feasible for doing a solo show.
So after much deliberation (and some serious reviewing online) I purchased the GNX4. I was impressed with what i had read (and also seen on youtube) so I thought this is the answer to the prior headache. It is. Pre-reading the instructions was a bit intimidating without physically seeing the unit. There are so many features! The biggest selling point for me was something I could not find on another device. Effect control in each patch! What i mean is this; for those who use a lot of pedals your used to being able to turn each one on and off depending on mood and song. You had complete control over which effect you wanted on and when. Well along came digital age and we got multi-units that gave us every combination imaginable, all located in banks and patches. So...select a bank, then a patch and viola! There is your sound, but wait, what if the delay level wasnt sounding just right? Crap, hey guys, stop the band a sec, I have to reprogram a patch. Or copy the patch, then edit so you could switch between 2 (or more) patches in the course of a song. Ok, start playing again. This was a frustrating expierence I had on several "multi" (roland, art)units, all of which had turned me away from them and back to individual pedals again.
So when i saw that this unit allowed me to turn off an effect, via the footswitch just like a regular pedal, my interest was peaked. Then there was the drums, cool, and realistic. Okay, now I have an 8 track recorder that lets me dub on the fly? Wow. Then I can route my signal to how many places, all in stereo? Goose bumps. Plus headphone out, seperate mic in along with line ins. This package is powerful. And the last thing i havent played with yet, USB. That's right, direct into my computer for burning up some mp3s.
The manual is pretty well written and it will take some time to harness the full potential of this. Within 30 minutes i had laid down a drum track and layered 5 guitar lines(just for fun,still had tracks to spare!)
I was disappointed to learn that digitech has discontinued this unit, but i think i figured out why. Given all the features of this thing I'm sure the competing companies had the digitech engineers dissappear like Jimmy Hoffa!
Everything is in this thing, and its pretty rugged. I also got the optional footswitch, which makes recording a breeze.
Now if I can figure out the settings so it will brew my coffee too...
Very versatile unit live or just playing at home with the on the fly recording and a optional control pedal this thing rocks.User presets are great for your own styles of effects.The functions and ability to download mp3's into the unit make it a band right at your toe tips.If it all sounds to complicated don't worry just start messing around and you will figure it out.And if you mess it up it has a factory restore(reset) that will fix what you done wrong.Overall this is one of the best pieces of gear money could buy,just to bad they quit making them.Its a must have for the solo artist.
I never got the GNX4 from this buyer but I had it before, sold it and was trying to replace it with this seller's GNX4.
I can say that the one I originally has was really cool. The learning curve was kind of high but not too bad compared to other pedals that do the same thing.
The effects are pretty good out of the box, and are customizable so you can make them sound like you want if you put in the time to do so.
The thing that makes this unit great is the built in, digital, 4 track recorder and the input for microphone. You really can make an entire song if you want to using the built in drum effects, bass simulator and your guitar. I suppose if you are good at mic~ing real drums you could manage to ditch the canned drums.
Anyway this thing is fun, works well, is very sturdy and reliable and sounds great. You can run it straight into a PA system if you want so you don't have to lug heavy equipment. It is worth 150.00 to 200 depending on what add ons you get with it.
It's too bad that they do not make these anymore. They're really quite a marvel. I enjoy the functionality of the system and it's relatively easy to use. I wish that the instructions were more thorough and that the protracks software included explained things better. It requires lot's of reading and tinkering, but overall, I do not think I could have picked a better 1st multi-effect.
