    Product Description

    The DigiTech GSP1101 rack is packed with some of the greatest features that are only possible through the legendary technology of DigiTech.
    After many requests from customers, DigiTech finally placed their amazing modeling, tones, effects, presets and incredible usability all in a rack.

    Audio DNA2! The Power Inside!

    Audio DNA2 While other preamp/processors take over and become the center of your rig, Digitech has taken a new approach and designed the GSP1101 to adapt and fit within your system, letting you get the most out of your setup without taking over. Digitech keeps your amp, guitar and fingers at the center of your tone. Designed not to interfere with the tone you worked so hard to achieve and adds computer connectivity and the ability to interface with all of your existing gear - this rack can be the centerpiece of you rig!

    At the heart of the GSP1101 is DigiTech's AudioDNA2 DSP engine, offering 400% more horsepower than the previous AudioDNA processor. The AudioDNA2 is the engine that gives the GSP1101 much more raw impact and subtle detail to the tone. It is the world's most advanced audio processor which provides the maximum accuracy in the tone and dynamic response.

    Professionals Asked - DigiTech Listened
    The GSP1101 is the new paradigm in preamp/processors. DigiTech looked at the needs of the professional guitarists who already get their core tone with their amps, guitars, and fingers. The pros wanted to do everything from just adding a few effects to their existing tone to creating entirely new sounds with a single rack-mount preamp/processor. One concern they had in common; Don’t take over my rig like other preamps do. This required a whole new approach in design.

    The DigiTech GSP1101 answers the professional guitarist’s call for tone preservation by incorporating the flexibility to be easily integrated into any rig and configured to work the way you want it. DigiTech’s unique Setup Wizard guides you through the steps to optimize the GSP1101 to fit your needs.

    The GSP1101 not only preserves your tone, but it gives you access to a vast array of over 120 different models, from stompbox overdrives, preamps, and amps, to studio quality effects including luscious Lexicon reverbs and unique products like DigiTech’s Whammy. So many sounds, so little time...

    Don’t sell yourself short or compromise your tone. You’ve got your sound; now get more out of your rig with the GSP1101.

    GSP1101 Flexibility Statement
    How does the GSP1101 save your tone? By using the GSP1101’s unique and flexible preamp loop in conjunction with the easy to use setup wizard, you can quickly configure your GSP1101 to meet your connectivity and functionality needs. By allowing you to place your personal preamp in the GSP1101’s preamp loop, the GSP1101 places internal stompboxes, choruses before your amp’s input like discrete pedals. The effects like delays and the internal Lexicon reverbs follow after your preamp. Most rack mount products force you to run through some type of clean amp model changing your sound just so you can get a little extra. With the GSP1101 you longer have to sacrifice your tone and effect chain to use a rack.

    Unlike most rack preamp / processors, the GSP eliminates internal sections that you are not using and places the effects in use in the correct order. You want an internal distortion and chorus before your outboard amp? No problem. The GSP1101 setup wizard quickly walks you through the setup and then internally reconfigures to meet your needs. You want just chorus, delay and reverb? No problem, the setup wizard makes it a snap to turn the GSP1101 into the ultimate effects processor.

    Whether you want to use the GSP1101 as your total preamp / processor by running it straight into a power amp and cabinet or if you want to incorporate it into your stack / rig, the GSP1101 will fit your needs.

    You’ve worked long a hard to develop your signature tone, we don’t want to take over; we just want to be a part of it.

    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have owned a GSP-1101 since 2009. I bought this one as a backup and R&D unit. Also, I can take this unit to smaller shows without having to un-rack my older GSP. I will upgrade this unit to version c63 of the firmware which allows me to use custom Impulse Responses (IRs), as I have done with my older GSP. I always run the GSP direct to a mixer.
