TC Electronic has announced G-Major 2, a guitar multi-effects processor which they say heralds a new era of rack-based effects. Here's the rest of what they have to say about it...
G-Major 2 is based on the highly acclaimed G-Major platform, but offers new and updated effects and features. G-Major 2 houses effects ranging from delays, reverbs and modulation that helped define the industry. It boasts all-new takes on Tri-chorus, through-zero-flanger, modulated delays and Univibe, each created with impeccable TC Electronic quality. G-Major 2 dynamic controls include Noise Gate, EQ and Compression blocks.
All reverbs found in G-Major 2 are classic TC Electronic reverbs, which have been retuned specifically for guitar. A new addition is a whole new filter/wah block, ported 1:1 from TC Electronic's flagship guitar effects unit: G-System. Rounding out the extensive feature set are intelligent pitch shifting and reverse delay.
G-Major 2 offers extensive control options and enables users to change patches and presets through MIDI, or to use G-Major 2 in 'stompbox'-mode, enabling on/off switching of individual effects. G-Major 2 also features relay switching options, allowing users to switch their amp channels directly from G-Major 2.
G-Major 2 offers users added control through its three different routings of the 6 effect blocks. G-Major 2 offers Serial Routing - where all blocks are lined as a straight line of pedals. The second option is Semi-Parallel - where Delay and Reverb are placed in parallel and finally Parallel - where all blocks except Compression and filter MOD blocks are placed in serial.
G-Major 2 offers users easy and convenient editing and storing of patches and pre-sets through a PC/Mac editor available from http://www.tcelectronic.com/G-major2 at the launch of G-Major 2.
G-Major 2 encompasses all the classic TC Electronic effects that made G-Major a favorite among passionate hobby musicians and pros alike and, using feedback and requests from dedicated users of the G-Major platform, adds new effects and features, making G-Major 2 the perfect amalgam of tried and true and innovation.
