Product Description

Groundbreaking features, the Roland GR55 guitar synthesizer ushers in a new era of sound, power, and performance. In terms of speed, it's the fastest ever. Plus the GR55 is the most accurate, thanks to newly developed pitch-detection technology. As for sound, the triple-core generator houses a world-class array of virtual guitars, basses, amps, and synth voices, enabling tones and textures that have never been heard before. Onstage or in the studio, you can instantly access the GR55's huge library of ready-to-use sounds, from pop to rock and beyond, with quick-access category buttons.

New Sound Possibilities
The GR55's powerful triple-core engine comprises two PCM synthesizers (with over 900 tones each powered by the latest Roland synthesis technology) and COSM guitar modeling, featuring a virtual treasure trove of guitar, bass, amp, and synth models. Together, these combined technologies allow you to create unique, revolutionary sounds. The Metal Synth Lead preset, for example, combines two types of thick, brilliant synth textures with an overdriven solid-body/humbucking tone for incredible punch and power.

Lightning-Fast Tracking
Thanks to Roland's decades of research and dedication to guitar synthesizers and powerful new pitch detection technology, the GR55 is far and away the fastest guitar synth ever. Furthermore, the COSM guitar-modeling engine needs zero detection time, allowing the GR55 to respond instantly and exactly as you play. The GR55 detects pitch, velocity, and behavior for unprecedented response to your performance.

Instant Gratification
Get ready to rock and fast! The GR55 puts you instantly in touch with a huge library of amazing sounds, no editing required. The onboard lineup of ready-to-use presets (270, plus 297 user) takes the pain out of the process, with simple category buttons for finding the perfect sound fast. Choose from hundreds of great presets for pop, rock, and beyond, and kick-start your song or jam with unique, powerful sounds that will turn heads and raise fists.

Easy to Use
If you're new to the world of technology, fear not. The GR55 is powerful yet extremely friendly. For customizing sounds, the EZ Edit feature (made famous in the GT10) and large LCD takes the guesswork out of the process. And for those who want to go deep, the GR55 offers a huge array of controllable parameters. Pros will appreciate the power of the GR55, while beginners will love how quick and easy the unit is to operate.

USB Connectivity
The GR55 conveniently bridges the guitarist to the desktop music production world with its two USB ports. The rear-panel port can be used for MIDI/Audio data communication; the side-panel port is dedicated to real-time playback of audio files from a USB memory device (sold separately). The GR55 provides foot control of USB audio playback so your hands never need to leave the guitar.

Really great sounds
What is your opinion of this product?
1st you should have a computer to utilize the library, (downloading - saving swapping out patches). Overwhelming at 1st (you can play with the presets for months, Quality sounds throughout, the amount of cabinets-effects-sounds from flutes-sax-keyboards guitars etc. is amazing. By far the best out there.

Freakishly Cool!
What is your opinion of this product?
I am not what you'd call a guitar purist. I've always embraced effects processors, but a guitar synth seemed to cross the line for me. I was about to buy a new synth keyboard to upgrade my studio when I found the GR55. I was blown away by how much better guitar synths have gotten over the years. The tracking is nearly flawless, and a huge improvement from a decade ago.The synth sounds are top notch. The guitar and amp modeling are way cool for a guy like me that only has a few axes and only one amp. Don't turn up your nose at the idea of a guitar synth, you will almost certainly regret it when cuttin' heads with someone who owns one. The GR55 demands the attention of any player.

"Even better than I had hoped for"
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this to replace an old GR-50 rack mount unit that I have used for years. I used it mostly for string pads and fills but it never was fast enough for any punchy horn lines or organ parts. Well that all changed when I received this unit. The tracking is Fast and Accurate. Hardly ever any glitches and the patches are greatly improved. Now I can double with the sax and keyboard players when working with the full band. When I'm doing singles or trio gigs I have my lush string pads to fill up the holes. The synth sounds are pushing me to branch out on my lead work but mainly I'm having fun! I recommend this Synth with full confidence!

Wide variety of sounds.
What is your opinion of this product?
Love it. I want to do some recording, and with the variety of voices available on the GR55, I can use my guitar to play keyboards, horns, strings, and other parts that aren't normally available to me, cuz of a shortage of musicians where I live.
