The GW-7 features a wide variety of pre-programmed Styles, which can be customized. There are 101 arrangements onboard, with 16 user memory locations. Choose from three band types: Drum & Bass, Combo, and Full Band. Ninety-nine song locations are provided for storing compositions. Connect the GW-7 to a computer or USB-equipped external device with one simple USB cable, and transfer data back and forth quickly and easily. The GW-7 can be constantly refreshed with new songs and Styles via USB data import — Standard MIDI Files can be loaded as well. The GW-7 offers an infrared D Beam, a pitch-bend/modulation lever, and a pair of control knobs for realtime expression.
