30 types of authentic drive tones
The sound modeling technology developed for our ZFX Plug-in came in handy when redesigning drive sounds for the G1u. Parameters such as gain setting range and harmonics component characteristics were fine-tuned to convincingly recreate 20 types of guitar amps and stomp boxes. And there are 10 original drive types settings as well, producing quality sound and dynamic presence.
USB means you can record directly to your computer
Simply hooking up the G1u to a computer with a USB cable turns it into an audio interface. Our direct monitoring design eliminates any latency problems, allowing the real amp sound to carry through into the recording. Now you can get your own tone no matter where you are.Whether you're practicing, performing or recording, the G1u has endless tone possibilities for any style of playing.
●67 Stage-ready Effects
Eight modules offer a collection of 67 different effects that can be put to use straight away. There's even a Harmonized Pitch Shifter in key and long delay with settings of up to five seconds. The G1u surpasses your expectations for flexibility and control.
●Dozens of tube amps at your feet
Our authentic sounding models of classic tube amplifiers are made possible by our highresolution signal processing with 24-bit A/D/A conversion and 96 kHz sampling. This technology captures ultra high-range harmonics that dramatically impact the authenticity of the model.
●Advanced ZFX-3 audio engine
The G1u's 32-bit ZFX-3 engine delivers highly sophisticated audio processing power for outstanding performance. Every nuance of fingering and touch is captured through detailed and smooth signal processing, ensuring that your performance is accurate and uncompromised.
●Modern to legendary straight out of the box
From the legendary sounds of the sixties and seventies to the latest modern metal sounds and famous artist styles, the G1u gives you a tremendous range of tones with 100 patches ready to play. Program your own sounds and save up to 100 more.
●Looping function records 5-second phrases
Record/playback/overdub guitar phrases with the looping function that can be controlled with the foot switches. This “sound-on-sound” feature lets you lay down phrases in real time, and during a live performance, you can use the looping sound as a backing track.
●Integrated drum machine with PCM sound sources
Choose from 40 different rhythm patterns including 8-beat and 16-beat as well as 4-beat, shuffle and many other variations. The tap key makes it easy to directly input the tempo. Start a jam session anytime, anywhere.
●5 ms high-speed patch switching
The slight mute interval that occurs when switching patches has been reduced to an amazing 0.005 seconds. For example, when switching from backing to a solo sound with a conventional effect device, the switch had to be pressed slightly in advance to start the solo with the correct sound. With the G1u on the other hand, you can start playing the solo phrase straight away when pressing the switch.
●Optional remote operation accessories
Connect the foot switch (FS01) to quickly change banks or specify the tempo for the drum machine by tapping your foot. Alternatively, you can use the expression pedal (FP02)and vary parameters such as wah, pitch shift, and volume with your foot.
●Runs on batteries, AC adaptor, or USB bus power
The G1u supports three different power sources: AC adaptor, batteries, and USB bus power. Four AA/LR6 alkaline batteries are good for 10 hours of continuous use. Whether inthe studio or on stage, the G1u has all the power options you need.
●Good to go where you go.
While offering performance and functions far beyond its class, the compact G1u easily fits into the pocket of a guitar case or gig bag. The reinforced plastic case is sturdy yet lightweight, so you can carry the unit anywhere.
