DigiTech continues their effort in creating the performing/recording guitarist's ideal workstation with the GNX4. The new GNX4 is a full-featured multi-modeling floor effects processor, portable digital 8-track recorder, MIDI drum machine, MP3 player, and 4-in, 4-out USB audio computer interface combined into a single package.
At the heart of the GNX4 is DigiTech's multi-modeling amp and cabinet modeling engine, where the sky is the limit on the number of amp and cabinet models that are available. Combine your favorite amp tone with studio quality effects processing, including the Whammy. Connect to both your onstage amp and the house mixer using both the XLR and 1/4" outputs.
When you are ready to record, so is the GNX4. Thanks to USB connectivity and the included Pro Tracks Plus recording software, hands-free recording has been taken to the next level. Just press the record footswitch and stream four channels of 24-bit audio to the computer while playing two channels back, all with zero latency monitoring. A mic input with +48V phantom power and stereo line inputs let you capture virtually any audio source with ease. For the finishing touch, process your work through Lexicon reverbs courtesy of the Pantheon reverb plug-in provided with both Pro Tracks Plus recording software for PC and BIAS Deck SE recording software for Mac. If you are out jamming with the band, the built-in 8-track recorder can capture the magic riffs that come out of nowhere and save the moment onto the Compact Flash memory card for transfer to the computer later.
The GNX4 also features an advanced MIDI drum machine, providing a library of drum kits and patterns to help craft your music with. You can even use your own MIDI files to playback the GNX4's drums. When not playing drums, the GNX4's drum machine playback engine can play back your favorite MP3s for something cool to rehearse with or for live performance.
The GNX4 will be Shipping mid-march with a street price of $599.95.
