TC Electronic have announced the
immediate availability of version 2.0 software for the TEC award nominee and 2006
MIPA award winning G-System. The free update adds intelligent pitch shifting and
greatly improves preset and MIDI functionality, thus, say TC, solidifying G-System as the new
standard in floor based integrated guitar effects management solutions.
Uffe Kjems Hansen, TC Electronicâ€™s Vice President of Product Management, told us â€œWe
value the principles of customer derived solutions, and the optimization of this
software update has user input all over it, truly making it a synergy of technology and
Hereâ€™s what TC have to say about the G-System in their own wordsâ€¦
Released in 2005, the G-System was the first product to combine over 25 top quality
effects, loops and power supplies for analog pedals and relays for amp switching, all
packed in a beautiful road ready housing. While the G-System in itself is a testimonial of
TC quality and design, TC has raised the bar even higher and made the G-System even
more versatile with this new update.
The renowned intelligent pitch from the legendary TC Electronic processor, G-Force, is
now available for the G-System through this update. The intelligent pitch allows users to
choose a scale and then tie the pitches to the notes played, creating sounds and
harmonies truly out of this world. Through new features like factory preset lock, players
can lock or disable all factory presets assuring that no matter how hectic the gig gets,
only their own presets will come up.
Another new feature, volume and expression pedal input response, allows users much
more flexibility when using expression and other pedals with G-System.
functionality of the G-System has also been improved and now sets a new industry
standard. MIDI clock synchronization allows users to remote control the tempo of the
G-System. This means total control of time-based effects like delay and tremolo through an external device using MIDI clock. Also, MIDI control change can now be stored in
presets, facilitating control of external devices such as loopers and switchers. This results
in even further integration of guitar rigs with the G-System. The update also allows for
MIDI continuous controllers to be used in a latch/unlatch fashion, allowing users to
make the exact changes they want every time, even when using MIDI control change.
Tap tempo MIDI Out gives the user control of an external MIDI device with the tap
tempo footswitch on their G-System.
In other features, loop levels now go down to 0dBu, compression out levels
go as low as -100dB, there is a new constant dry signal mix strategy in all effects and a
new wah-wah filter accuracy at 48 bit resolution. Pricing and Availability:
software version 2.0 will ship with all current G-System units and can be downloaded
free of charge from TC Electronicâ€™s support site by all who are using previous versions. More information:
