TC Electronic launches G-Natural effects system for acoustic guitar 30/03/07
TC Electronic has announced G-Natural, which they tell us is a breakthrough floor-based multi effect processor for acoustic guitar. They say that G-Natural is the most complete solution for the serious acoustic player as it gives the performer the control that only an electric guitar player has been able to attain until now, allowing for a unique, custom live sound.
G-Natural houses a suite of high quality effects fine-tuned for acoustic guitar. It features compression, 3-band parametric EQ, boost and modulation effects such as chorus, detune, thicken and panner. It also features time-based effects such as reverb and delay.
With both a built-in mic preamp and standard instrument inputs, players can choose between a piezo or pickup system or miking their guitar with a condenser mic. The Mix function on G-Natural enables players to go one step further, mixing both the signals inside the unit to get the optimal representation of their guitar sound.
G-Natural comes with 99 factory presets optimized for a wide variety of musical genres and playing styles. The 99 user-customizable settings allow instrumentalists to add a personal touch to the effects and thus create their own sounds.
G-Naturalâ€™s mic pre can also be used for vocal performance. Putting G-Natural in song mode automatically gives users a vocal strip EQ and reverb block. The reverb can be bypassed via a footswitch to avoid unwanted effects when addressing an audience.
Topping an already packed feature list are a built-in tuner, digital I/O, expression pedal input and MIDI, making G-Natural, say TC, a well-rounded package for the serious acoustic guitar player or singer/songwriter.
