Well, I'm not discouraged yet, still going to check it out. The book said the reason the g-major had this capability was so that you could use a delay and a reverb together without getting some kind of weird warbling effect. When you put those two in parallel with each other, it stops that.
Maybe boss already figured this out ahead of time or maybe they had to leave some room for software upgrades
Whatever the case, it looks like it might suprize those expecting it to be just another gimmick peice. I know I've seen people bitchin' that nobody makes an fx processor that has a straight usb to usb computer interface let alone lets you record thru it. Here is a device that's giving people more of what they asked for and nobody seems too interested. Maybe it's not taken seriously because it has the modeling preamp in it? The cool thing is you don't have to use the modeling all the time or at all.
Can ya tell I'm gasing over this thing?
I have come to the conclusion that digital modeling sounds fantastic when used in a recording environment and requires a different amplification system than a tradtitional guitar amp to get maximum audio quality live. I've also come to the conclusion that in most cases it just doesn't "feel" the same, but as far as the sound goes, it's fantastic.
If you want to run an external chorus in the loop and mix the outputs sepeately outside the Gt you can do that.
personally, chorus and reverb have worked fine together for almost 30 years in series, so I'm not too concerned about it.
