TC Electronic G Force Pro Rackmount Guitar Multi-Effects
The ultimate guitar multi-effects processor, the G-Force is capable of performing 8 algorithms simultaneously in any order or routing configuration without the usual tonal degradation. Effects include reverb, chorus, delay, pan/tremolo, flange, intelligent pitch shift, compression, EQ and other filter effects. The G-Force is the perfect companion for any professional combo amp or pre-amp/amp combination. The G-Force features 24-bit AD-DAs, S/PDIF digital I/O, a 44.1kHz sampling rate, and an intuitive user interface. Also, Full 20kHz bandwidth and >100dB dynamic range.
The legendary G-Force gives you a variety of great sound effects, in a easy to program and fun to operate single rack unit. State-of-the-art DSP technology, proprietary DARC chip, 24 bit resolution gives you massive memory, high-speed processing and uncompromised sound quality.
Flexible routing and control possibilities combined with 8 full-blown effects, each with sound quality surpassing stand alone units, generate sounds unlike any you have heard before as well as dreamed about! With the G-Force digital multiple effects processing has finally come of age enabling you to have high quality sounds without sacrificing the integrity of your original tone!
Ditching your beloved stomp boxes and going digital often means losing the simplicity and flexibility of your pedal arrangement. Dealing with phone book sized manuals and interfaces made by and for computer expects, often drive creative musicians away from such space age machinery. One of TC's missions with the G-Force was to effectively address this problem! Despite the front-end technology and advanced possibilities encompassed within the G-Force, it's a very flexible and easily approachable machine. You have the choice of simply using it as a linear chain of effects, or you can go beyond the use of any other known multi-effects unit, and explore the countless combinations and possibilities within the G-Force.
The G-Force is very likely to change your whole approach towards creating effects for your guitar. Very soon you will find yourself going from simple use of standards effects towards thinking up previously non-existing effects, like a tremolo that only kicks in when you play high notes. Simultaneously, you are controlling the level of a phased, distorted delay with your old volume pedal, that you set the G-Force up to use as an expression controller.
The G-Force is so intuitive and logical to use, that when you want something to happen and have a feeling that a particular parameter is the right one to adjust, you are probably right! No matter how deep you go, you will not lose your orientation, but you might end up with the coolest new effects you have never heard - and it's yours exclusively!
TC Electronic's proprietary DARC chip and the latest DSP technology make the G-Force the most powerful guitar effects processor ever made...by a wide margin. This also assures that the legendary G-Force Multi-Effects Processor will not run out of power before you run out of ideas.
In other multi-effects processors, the more effects and higher complexity of effects you load, the more the overall sound quality of the effects will suffer. Not so with the G-Force! Unequalled DSP power makes it all possible: Now you can get the effects you want, any way you want them.
The transparency of the 24 bit A/D and D/A converters assures the sound quality will be unparalleled – and the G-Force is the first Guitar Multi-Effects Processor to offer 24 bit resolution, standard.
The power and integrity of your original tone will stay intact, even when running your entire signal through up to 8 full-blown effects simultaneously:
Naturally you can modify these 8 effect-blocks to give you such effects as:
- Delay Pan
- Tremolo Chours
- Flanger Drive Reverb Filter
- EQ Compressor Pitch
... just to mention a few.
- Stereo Hall
- Hard Compression
- Fast Tremolo
- Multi-tap Delay
- Noise Gate
Note: The pitch effect features Intelligent Pitch-Shifting algorithms developed by Wave Mechanics. The G-Force is the first guitar effects processor to employ this groundbreaking software. Activating the Noise Gate will not count as one of the eight available effects, since TC Electronic has already added this feature in the input-section!
Thanks to the unique matrix of the G-Force you can easily route and run the effects in any combination and order you wish. As an example you can let the pitch dectector control tremolo tempo, making the speed of the tremolo increase as your pitch increases. You now have 7 remaining effects.
On top of that, you can let the threshold control your pitch, so you will jump an octave when you hit the strings really hard. At this point, you still have 6 effects remaining. Now you can throw in a full-blown TC 1210 style chorus, a TC 2290 type ducking delay and an M2000 reverb. Want more? - You still have 3 more effects to add.
Another TC exclusive, the ParaLink real time modifiers, quickly and easily put you in control of all relevant preset parameters. Pitch-bend, After-touch, MIDI controller, Tempo, Envelope, 2 LFO’s and 2 ADR’s allow you to create the exact sound you want, regardless of style or complexity - from mild to wild…clean to nasty.
It is a bit like driving a bicycle: It's dead-easy, but it still allows you go in any direction you want. The G-Force truly offers a formidable arsenal of possibilities! Choosing the direction is your privilege....
