    OK so I am too lazy to scroll through each and every Factory Preset Patch and type it in on my laptop or copy it out 'long hand'. Is there any list that exists out there in Cyber Land? An overall visual is always nice, but an inadvertent oversight on T.C.'s part (they had it for the G Major 1). Nothing in the G Major-2 User's Manual and nothing on the T.C site for download. I've contacted T.C. Support.

    Cheers.

      mesaboogie I second that request!

      A printout of the pre-sets (with parameter settings) would be a huge time saver in browsing through the sounds and creating my list of favorites.

      mesaboogie How about this? There might be a typo now and then but it is pretty close. At least you copy and paste and then do any editing.

      It is now nearing a Month past the point that TC promised us these things....Preset List, Software Editor. Boy, are they either lazy, slow or don't care. Love the Product, starting to dislike the lack of customer respect.

      LittleJim I just bought a G-Major 2 (Dec 2017) and still cannot find an official factory preset list. So thank you wadecanck and mesaboogie. I copy/pasted your list to an Excel file (on my iMac) just to make it easier to print out and read on one sheet. I tried to include that file here in this message but I can't. Sorry folks.

    1. The latency when switching patches... is this a normal thing? Seems to only be about 1/3 of a second, but still tough to get used to.

    2. I'm getting some massive volume loss even with the compressor, gate, and boost bypassed. My input and output levels seem to be set properly. I'm playing through a Krank Revolution head (not the Rev+), using the 4-cable method with all Mogami cables, with the ones going into the effects loop being TRS. I tried a Boost N' Buff pedal before the effects return and it solved the volume issue, but it turned my tone into POD tone and sucked out all of my low end

    Has anybody else encountered either of these problems?

      What are your evaluation criteria for postulating that "My input and output levels seem to be set properly." ?? Sounds like levels in the G-System may not be set properly somewhere.

      Almost everyone. You need to set the G-System levels properly. You may also need a buffer somewhere - but we need to get levels set properly so we can tell.



      Send me an e-mail (link under my name to the left.) I can send you something to get you going on the signal-level issue.

    I have recently bought a Nova System and so far it's FAB...just a little confused about the EQ section....I have never used a parametric before....can somebody give me any ideas on setting this up....what are the 3 Frequncy parameters?...are they like Bass, Mid and Treble??....if so which is which?

    Many thanks

      Dicecream Hi Divil,



      yes, you think of the the 3 bands as Low, mid and Highs. The 3 frequency parameters set the " working area" of the Eq and you select the frequency that you want to boost or cut.

      Frequency for each band is freely selectable on Nova system.



      see your Nova system manual for a detailed description of the parameters. ..



      Please note that if you engage on the "speaker Simulation" in the utility menu, the EQ won't be available for other duties..
      • March 17, 2009
    • divil
      elfredoo I think he wanted to know which frequency is usually for bass, midle and treble... don't know it either
      • March 18, 2009
    • divil
      Laird_Williams This is why I don't like parametric EQs. I HATE parametric EQs. Give me a graphic EQ with frequencies already intelligently chosen for guitar any day, and just let me set the levels. MAYBE give me a little control over the center frequency for the mid-range.



      Programming a parametric EQ takes LOTS of experimentation. That said, you can start with the following ranges.



      Bass:

      Center Frequency: 100 hz - 200 hz (I'd start about 150hz or so)

      Width: about 1/2 - 1 octave

      Treble:

      Center Frequency: 5khz - 10khz (I'd start about 7khz)

      Width: about 2 octaves

      Mid:

      Center Frequency: Anywhere from 250hz to 2.5khz, depending on the sound you want.

      Width: 1-2 octaves



      Running a narrow treble with a high center frequency can turn the treble into a "sizzle" control, which can be VERY cool.
      • March 18, 2009
    • divil
      divil Cheers for the input guys...I'm still not sure which Freq 1, 2 and 3 are..I presume they are 1 high, 2 mids and 3 lows?....the manual is very vague indeed!....seems like a lot of faffing about...give me Bass,Mids and Treble and I'm just fine!



      Thanks again

      Paul

      thesnue hi



      you can chose the frequencies for all three bands freely. but usually one starts with the 1. lows, 2. mids and 3. highs. this it the way the eq is configured from the factory.

    Hi

    I've heard a lot of good things about the TC2290 and (assuming they're near impossible to get hold of) was wondering what, if anything, is considered to have taken it's place in the current TC product range.

    Alternatively, if there's a suggested means of acquiring a 2290, that'd be great...

    Many thanks

    Hi I play a Peavey 6505+ and recently purchased a Decimator. Does anyone know how to set this up w/the G sys? I'm confused as the Decimator has to go through both the effects loop and the front of the amp.

      Which decimator model are you using?
      • February 21, 2009

      Andre_N I have the same ISP (Laird, the model is mentioned in the heading), and my wiring is like this:

      Guitar => ISP ch 1 input => ISP ch 1 input => G-system input (where the guitar is normally connected directly)

      Then I use the normal 4 cable connection.

      The ISP channel 2 is in my Marshall JVM410H serial loop (the G is in the fx loop).



      Keep rocking!

      taah - missed that...too focused on the content. Silly me.



      As Andre noted - ch1 should probably go between the guitar and the G-System input...although you can also try putting it between the G-System insert send and the amp input.



      If you don't have a dual-loop setup like the Marshalls, I would put the 2nd channel between the FX send and the G-System input. You can knock down any thermal noise generated in the amp. This position may give some side benefits, since the Decimators effectively buffer the signal. If your amp loop is already properly buffered, then the decimator's buffering probably will have no influence. But if the output impedance of the amp send is high, the decimators buffer may improve the transparency of the loop to a degree.

      blanch Cheers for the response fellas. The back of the 6505+ is like this-








      So i guess I can try both methods.



      Andre, when you say "The ISP channel 2 is in my Marshall JVM410H serial loop (the G is in the fx loop)." Do you mean plugging channel 2 in Number 9 in that digram, the Preamp out?



      I'll try both of these tomorrow.



      Thanks again

      Andre_N Hi,



      My ISP channel 2 is connected in the serial loop preamp out and power amp in). I couldn't see all the letters on your diagram, but sounds like this is the same as I have.

    OK, I've searched and not really found a basic answer to this: how exactly do the Loop Level and Loop Headroom work?

    My setup is guitar into G-system into amps, very simple, with some overdrive pedals in the first three loops. (No Insert Loop used.) I've tried adjusting the Loop Level/Headroom in different ways, and the only thing I've discovered is that my drive pedals "breathe" better with the Headroom up to 5 or 6 dB. With a lower Headroom, they have less of their original sound and dynamics. But how does the Loop Level change things, if I've got it set at 0 dB as opposed to 3 dB? How are the Level and Headroom related? I've figured out usable settings by ear, but I'd like to know exactly what I'm adjusting here.

    Also, if I've got the Loop Level/Headroom set a certain way, should I also adjust the overall Output Level to suit?

    Thanks for any information.

      Loop level is really just the output level from the first FX section - (before the loops). You can safely think of it as an amplifier. A level of 0 means "give me the level that comes out of DSP 1 and don't alter it. A level of 3db means "give me a level that is 3db 'louder' than what came out of DSP1." Hence, turning the loop level up feeds all of the loops a stronger source signal.



      Loop headroom is about controlling the signal level going into the second DSP section (after the loops). If any of the devices in your loops, (including a preamp in the insert loop) jack the signal too high - or if you have to jack up the loop level to get good sounds out of your pedals, then you may have a signal coming into the G that is too strong for the input to DSP2. The loop headroom is an attenuator. It does the opposite of that the loop level does, and makes the incoming signal 'quieter'.



      Do you have my white paper? It has a diagram of the G-System components that includes all the signal control points (global levels) in it.

      Tarkus Laird:



      Thanks for your reply, and this confirms what I'm hearing. For a while, I had my loop level on 4 or 5, which confused the issue. Last night at rehearsal, I set it back to 0, and adjusted the headroom throughout - it sounded best at 5 dB for whatever reason. Of course, I'll have to tweak the pedal levels, too.



      No, I don't have your white paper, although I think I've read excerpts in different threads. If it's easy to acquire, let me know. And thanks again.

      Mostly - the tuner us actually in the pitch block. The pitch block just mutes when the tuner is engaged. Aside from that - it looks good.

    Hi,
    A week ago I bought a UAD-2 Nevana128 and it's taken me all week to realize that TC Near (or the TCE firewire drivers at least) seems to be causing the UAD-2 card to BSOD on my system. I just took it for granted it was the UAD-2 card that was the problem as my UAD-1 card works fine.

    After overcoming a few other hardware issues which went away after updating the m/b drivers I've narrowed it down to TC Near. Even my POD XT Pro can act as my system audio I/O using Line6 ASIO drivers and no crashes and my on-board native audio can load up a test project with all DSP's at around 95% without crashing.

    This is most disappointing news as it looks like I am going to have to ditch the Konnekt hardware and go to a dedicated PCI/PCIe card type system like an RME HDSP or MOTU 2408 etc... more cash than I have right now.

    Just thought I'd mention that

    Cheers

      RJB Hey Bossa,



      Are you sure it is a hardware issue with the uad card and not something that can be solved with the drivers?



      What did u-audio respond regarding the issue?

      Did you already report this to TC-beta? As the konnekt drivers are also still in beta.



      I just ask because I have a powercore, a konnekt 48 and was thinking to add a uad-2 to my system, I am happy you told me it is at the moment not really working out.



      Regards,



      RJB

      nixx I noticed someone (here or in the poco forum), having UAD-2 listed in the signature along with Konnekt... bummer I don't remember the nick. Try to search a little and maybe ask if he has the same issues.

      JoZoB Hi Bossa,



      Wish I could help with something specific, but all I can offer is that the UAD-2 works fine on my system with the SK48.



      My specs are below if you want to compare, as we have somewhat similar hardware setups.

      Thanks for the replies guys.



      JoZoB.. Can you tell me which TC Near driver you are using please? I can't run the latest Beta as the GUI is blank and it never gets past the splash screen on my Quadcore. I'm also wondering if Cubase is the main culprit for me then as you're using Sonar v8.



      UA have only responded re' RED LED issues and told me to swap slots.. I already did all that but the SK48 still crashes the computer when the UAD-2 Quad is in there.



      As I said earlier I can use my DKx32 without any problems at all...



      I'm still waiting for TC Support to get back to me on this issue.

      Bossa,



      I'm using the latest Beta 4677 Drivers, without the problems you mention.



      Could be Cubase vs. SONAR, but, FWIW, I'd be more inclined to guess it was a core hardware/driver conflict issue, or maybe Vista vs. XP.

    Hi,
    I have a Vox V847 wah wah pedal which I sometimes use to achieve the "seagull-effect" in Echoes (Pink Floyd). I wonder if it could do any damage to connect it to one of the loops with reversed connection (switching input/output - the Vox output which normally goes into the amp is connected to the loop output and the Vox input (normally guitar input) is connected to loop input).

    I don't want to distroy my dear G-system, so therefore I ask this very helpful forum!


    Keep rocking!

      pfloyd Hi Andre



      This is a very old topic and I wonder if you had problems with putting your wah in one of the loops with reversed connection. I'm a little bit affraid to do so (we also play Echoes). And when there is no loop left in the G system how can I place the pedal using the reverse connection in my set up with the g system. Do you have any expirience with that?

      elcap420 Great question, have you thought about a single true bypass loop pedal like Cusack makes and put it at the front end and just put it in line when you wish. As far as putting it into a loop backwards I see no major issue but perhaps Laird can add his vast inner knowledge on that one... Glad Echoes is being played by other G System users



      Cheers
      • July 14, 2013
    • Andre_N
      pfloyd Yes maybe a loop pedal is the answer. I will concider that. I hope there are more G system users who played Echoes. I'm interested in their solutions.

      elcap420 If anything it may just not work in the G system loops due to the pre buffered loops. I know buffered wahs to work in front of fuzz boxes do not make the seagull sound in reverse. So the buffer in the loop may do the same thing... I always just put mine in line pre G if I am playing Echoes...

      mesaboogie Soren Andersen at NAMM did a great job of sellling the G major 2.

      Myself and 8000 YouTube viewers were able to listen to why we needed to buy this unit.



      I have a couple of questions:



      I see he is using a TC expression pedal. What model is it? Is it the X1?

      It also looks like he is using the Voodoo Lab Ground Control switcher. Is that right?

      He also has several other pedals, a wah and a Boogie amp. How about sharing the schematics for his entire setup?



      Now for the techie questions:



      Soren demonstrated the G major 2 presets below. Could we all see the parameters he used for each of the settings? This would be an excellent resource to get started in optimizing the Major 2.



      1. Reverse delay settings

      2. Univibe with leslie effect. He showed two different settings

      3. Tri-chorus

      4. Pitch shifter with wammy expression pedal

      5. Intelligent pitch shifter for harmonizing

      6. Compressor

      terrywhite I would love to have the answer to that question myself. I have watched the video several times now and whatever the settings are that he is using for the demo they sound great, but they are by no means part of the factory presets.

      Thats something I really never understood with the old G Major and now with the newest G Major, the factory are really bad. I am not dogging T.C. Electronics in any way, I love my G Major, and loved my first one. But almost every company out there now have some killer factory factory presets already loaded up.

      Line 6 for example, I used to use a Spider 210 as a practice amp, and there was a Riggs Insane factory preset that I use to use for almost all my lead playing, and even now I still try to get as close to that effect setting as I can. From just that single setting you can change a couple of small details and use the same preset for many different playing styles. Add a little phase and your playing Van Halen, take out the phase and change the delay a little and your playing several different Ozzy tunes.

      And it's all from a single factory preset, none of this includes all of the others included, and many of those are already set for a particualr song or band.

      It would be really cool to see some of that in the G Major factory presets.

      andi i would like to push this thread again because i am very interested in the schematics of sorens setup like "mesaboogie" already asked for. especially how to change channels of both amps at the same time - because he is playing TWO boogie amps - and if there are any split boxes used in the effects loop for this stereo setup. i have even sent a mail to soren already a few weeks ago, but as a busy musician he was not responding yet maybe somebody has an idea...

      thx in advance, andi from munich, germany.

      madmaxrich Looks like this thread died off a long time ago, hoping to revive and get some answers from TC, OR --- members who have since figured some of this stuff out. The demo is incredibly impressive. I too, would like to get the schematics of Soren's rig. Andi mentioned emailing Soren - does anyone have his email address to share. If you want to do that privately my email is [email protected] Here's what I'd like to know.

      1) The wah was incredibly killer, but using the wah in the GMII, I can't get a sound even close to that. If you'll notice, right after he uses the expression pedal for the pitch shifts at around 5:40 (depending on which ver of the video you watch) he goes to wah mode at 5:54, by first a) turning off the pitch shift effect with the GCX (and YES, that is a Voodoo GCX, I have one and it's great!), b) he hits a button on some device, I'm thinking to 'enable' his wah. WHAT IS THIS Effect/Pedal IS THIS?? I'm almost convinced it's not the GM2 providing this wah? I'm a rack guy, and can eliminate all my pedals except Wah. The thing is, on a larger stage for example, I HATE having to have a 15' run There AND BACK when using a wireless system. That's THIRTY FEET of signal degredation before it even hits the preamp.



      I took a snippet of it - but can't figure out how to attach. Help (to me) indicates that the image has to point to something online and doesn't appear to have an 'upload' function???



      Any and all suggestions are welcomed here. I know someone will say, skip the wireless, but I like to get out in the crowd and occasionally hop on the bar lol.



      2) I'd love to have his delay settings for the 'ping-pong' at 1:22 or so. I know it's a quick delay and then a longer one, but I'd like to know the values and also what he has pinging back and forth?



      PLEASE TC OR SOMEONE WHO HAS FIGURED THIS OUT -- POST HERE or email me at [email protected]

    Regarding frontend/G-System loop effects...

    I occasionally like "screaming bends" (I call them): bending distorted notes with single repeat frontend delay. You could combine frontend and loop delays. I've also thought about experimenting with frontend EQ. Some modulation effects work better in front, hard to say if that will work with the Nova System. Some folks also like a touch of analog overdrive/distortion in front of their distorted tube amp.

    The Nova System can provide these. When time allows, I'll experiment more with using the Nova System in front to see what might work best. Just curious if anyone has done this or has any thoughts.

      Mr_You I've been thinking a little more about this... specifically...



      I wonder if I can find or modify a volume pedal that could send two opposite signals at the same time, one to the G-Systems volume control (in the effects loop) and one to the Nova Systems volume control (in G-Systems front-end loop).



      The idea is when pressing the pedal forward the amps input signal/gain/distortion will increase (Nova Systems volume increases) while the amps effects loop signal is decreased (G-Systems volume decreases) to keep the volume relatively level. When pressing the pedal back the input signal/gain/distortion will decrease (clean up) while the effects loop signal is increased to keep the volume level. This make sense? Maybe its easier said than done. Guessing its doable with two separate volume pedals. I'm sort of doing this now with my guitars volume control and the Nova System in the loop, but its limited.

      jlbaxe I "had" a Line6 M13 that I would run in front of my amp and my TC2290 as the wet left and right speakers. I have a delay/Panning setting on the TC2290 and a different delay on the M13 and use them both together. It has sort of a Pink Floyd 1960s sound.



      I recorded it on my iPhone before I sold the M13 so now I have to figure it out on the G system. I believe in order to get the same effect I have to have the delay in the front of the amp.



      So yeah I like and understand where you are coming from with running the Nova system in a loop on the G system. If I get a chance to get one I might do the same.

      Stairwaydenied Hi Guys,

      I have recently experimented placing my NS in a loop on the G and am having great fun with mixing mods etc! Using the drive on the NS as a boost is also proving successful.



      My question is, how do I go about cabling the 2 up correctly for midi purposes? I have tried various configurations utilising the Y cable method but to no success, I can't get the 2 to talk to each other....



      As I am a midi virgin, can one of you fine upstanding peeps please point me in the right direction?



      I'm assuming that I might be over complicating things, as usual! ☺️



      Many thanks in advance for any help offered!

      Dadoune666 You may want to have your g-system controlling your nova system, right? So you'll have to connect like this using a simple midi cable (not the Y cable) :

      ->g-system midi out -> nova system midi in

      and juste midi program out section in the g-system and the midi program in section in the nova system.

      e.g. : the g-system send a pc (1), the nova has to respond on the pc(1) on the same midi channel (choose omni if you don't have any other midi devices).

      You can use Program change and Control change on the g :

      - PC on the g will change a preset on the ns

      - CC on the g will change... a effect on the ns.
