The GNX3000 is the all new processor from Digitech that the company says allows guitarists total creative freedom for stage and studio. Featuring Component-Based Modelingâ„¢ for accurate tone, XLR outputs for plugging directly into PA systems, and a USB interface for hard disk recording applications, the GNX3000 is loaded with 57 effects and is capable of up to 11 digital signal processing effects simultaneously.
Here's what Digitech have to say about the new unit...
Inspired by the award-winning GNX4 Guitar Workstation, the GNX3000 offers DigiTechâ€™s new, unique and highly coveted Component-Based Modelingâ„¢, two-way computer connectivity via a USB interface for recording, as well as additional I/O to handle other instruments, vocals and monitoring. The GNX3000 also offers both 1/4-inch and XLR outputs to simultaneously send signals directly to your amplifier and to the PA system.
At the heart of the GNX3000 is the onboard amp, cabinet and effects sections including advanced Component-Based Modeling, which completely encompasses the entire signal path of the amp, cabinet and effects and all their individual components, acoustic behavior and interaction. The unit is loaded with amp models based on classics such as the 1965 FenderÂ® Twin ReverbÂ®, 1957 Fender Tweed Deluxeâ„¢, Mesa/BoogieÂ® Dual Rectifierâ„¢, VOXâ„¢ AC30 Top Boostâ„¢, MarshallÂ® JCM900â„¢, 1959 FenderÂ® Tweed BassmanÂ®, AmpegÂ® SVTâ„¢ and more. And of course, this arsenal of tones can be warped together to form a customized rig with DigiTechâ€™s proprietary GeNetXÂ® processing technology. Blend in sounds based on classic stomp boxes, including the Ibanez TS-9Â®, the Arbiter FuzzFaceâ„¢, the BOSSÂ® DS-1â„¢, DigiTechâ€™s own famous GrungeÂ®, VooDoo LabsÂ® Sparkle Driveâ„¢, Electro-HarmonixÂ® Big Muff PiÂ® and others. Then there are the GNX3000â€™s special effects such as WhammyÂ®, Wah, Pickup Modeling, Intelligent Pitch Shifting, Chorusing, Flanging, Phasing, Tremelo, Noise Gate, various delays and reverbs, and many, many more.
The DigiTech GNX3000 is loaded with well-thought-out features that make it a guitaristâ€™s best friend in any situation. In the studio, DigiTechâ€™s renowned Hands-Freeâ„¢ computer recording is enabled by an onboard USB audio/MIDI interface. Also included is ProTracks Plusâ„¢ (MacÂ®/PC) recording software, which enables 4 channels of 24-bit audio to be streamed to the computer while playing 2 channels back, all with zero-latency monitoring, and X-Editâ„¢ Editor/Librarian software. An extremely low-noise dbxÂ® microphone preamp with its own phantom power supply allows you to capture all of the nuances of acoustic playing and vocal performances. Not sure if you want to print tracks wet or dry? Never be forced to make that choice again. Wet/Dry recording capability enables a processed stereo signal plus a mono dry signal to be recorded to the computer simultaneously. Dry signals can then be rerouted back through the GNX3000 for processing with any of its many onboard effects and models. Over 80 professional drum patterns are available at the touch of a footswitch.
Live, the GNX3000 will enhance your performance on any stage. Balanced XLR outputs with speaker compensation can drive a PA, or feed a recording console with the built-in DI box. The 1/4-inch jacks drive guitar amps in mono or stereo and allow you to control your own levels.
The GNX3000 allows unprecedented capabilities to practice, perform, create and record at advanced levels, all intuitively operational and helping you concentrate on being creative.
