    Hi dear G-System users,

    first thank you (and tc) for this great forum. Although I've just registered I've been reading here for a couple of weeks .... and learned a lot!!

    I want to buy a new FX device (obviously ) and having a hard time making a decision.
    First my situation:
    - I'm playing electric and acoustic guitar equally; it would be very nice, if i could use one device for both.
    - my setup isn't very sophisticated nor expensive (had a Vox tonelab, two H&K ATS50, Rocktron intellifex ltd (which i never used) and an H&K Attax Preamp (unfortunately old and noisy)
    - my music is more blues, country, rock (the way the word was used in the 80s) ... no Metal... anything from Steven Curtis Chapman to ACDC .
    - my 'ressources' are limited - meaning: I don't have the money to buy everything I'd like to (but: Who has?)
    - unfortunately i don't have a dealer where i could just compare all the devices (one has just a G system & a Nova System; another has more but is way too far away ... )
    - i'm not afraid of working through manuals and 'tame' a device - as long as it is easy to use on the long term (i even conquered my Yamaha AW 4416 ).

    What i like
    a) ... from the g system:
    - 'all in one' (Footboard, FX, 'Control center')
    - flexibility (Loops, usable as rack/floor, relay-switches (4), power for other pedals, two expression pedals, ...)
    - 'g system + Combo = ready'; i don't have a rack
    - direct on/off of FX
    - 'feels more modern' (Config & SW-Update via USB, ...) than e.g. g force


    b) ... from the g force:
    - rearrangable FX
    - 9 FX-Blocks
    - less expensive
    - seems a very 'adult' device with a lot of possibilities

    c) ... from the g major:
    - relay-switching again (1)
    - direct on/off of FX (via MIDI)
    - even less expensive


    Great difference: For b) & c) I would need an additional foot controller - what voids the 'price part'.
    Also I'm not sure, what controller would be the best.

    Another option would be: Buying a Nova System and/or G Natural. But they seem to be significantly 'smaller' and i'm a little sceptical about the quality...
    On the other hand: Nova System comes with OD-Section....

    HELP ME, please.

      Bread Why not get a second hand G system ?

      Simon2 hmmmm,



      first: i don't see, how it would solve my decision problem - especially, when i consider that it buying a used one would not be cheap enough to buy all systems.





      second: Because i'm not able to find one.

      (from trustworthy sources (i am from germany) - since i'm done with ebay). Maybe i'm paranoid, but i see so many traps in buying such a complex device (old version, hidden defects,....) that i really want to rely on some warrant.



      But thanks for the suggestion.

      victim5150 Well I've owned 3 G-Systems. Silver, red and now black. I still own the red and the black but sold the silver a few months ago. I bought the silver and black both used off of ebay. No issues. I've used the Rocktron Intellifex, G-major and the G-Force before I switched to the G-System. I aslo have an Axe-Fx II and my G-System's are going nowhere. Depends on what your needs are. For me I got tired of bringing my guitars, amps, FX rack and pedalboard to gigs. With the G-System I cut out the FX rack. Plus it handles all my amp channel switching so one less pedal needed and allows for volume and expression control all in one unit. When I had the other units I had to have a loop switcher to connect my other pedals along with the rack fx and MIDI controller to have the "one button switches everything" control that I have with my G-System rig.

      lidserter Agree with victim5150, the G System is the most practical right out of the box. I'm a G Major 2 owner: an unlucky one. As you, I couldn't tested it before buy, so blindly I ebayed for a brand new GM2, which after 3 months of light usage became to freeze and reboot itself. As i live far away from a TC repair center I kept it as is and found a workaround that works for me, for the meanwhile. That is THE point with the GM2, if you look at the forum there are many units that got this issue. As you said it has relay switching, but keep in mind you can switch just 4 functions. Consider also that newer GM2 do not have digital in/'t outs! There are many retailers that declare digital I/O on their GM2 listings but actually the units doesn't have them. Considering A/D D/A converters the G Force is known for lightly coloring the tone (obviously: is the oldest!), while the GM2 truely shines and sonically it is the same having it connected or not. About the G-System sound and A/D/A i can't tell.. However their FX are more usable than on the GM2. For example the wah wah on the GM2 is used after the preamp, and is totally useless. In fact in the product page there is a youtube review that Soren Andersen did, where he uses a clyde wah in the demo!



      Another pro of the G-System is the brain-controller interaction, which let you know the on/off status of each effect, and visualize the tuner info. On the other hand there isn't currently available a specific midi controller designed for the GM2, so forget about tuner info, and be prepared to write the on/off state of each effect not only on the GM2 preset but again on the controller patch that calls it...

      So for g system:

      - double check 'practicability'

      - double check 'reliability' (didn't noticed that issue with the GM2 unless you brought it up )



      Some further opinions?



      Maybe somebody with experience with an acoustic guitar (like my Taylor 314CE) ?

    Hi there...

    For the past few months I've been recording, primarily with my Mesa Mark V and without my G-System. It simply was forgotten there....

    Last week I started rehearsing to go on tour again, so I came back to my previous setup: JVM410H and G-System. As usual, Hum/His is still there on OD channels, even when guitar vol pot full down, and dissapeared when G vol pedal is down. As a last resource I wanted to try the TS-TRS cable, but it didn't work as expected.

    Trying to understand were the noise came from, I decided to run a test with a sound level meter, 50cm away from one of the speakers. The condition was guit vol full down, G vol pedal full up, in every JVM channel. I test it with an Ebtech HE-2, without it, and with the TS-TRS cable. Results were very similar, just 2-3dB noisier without the Ebtech. Again, no guitar sound came out of the amp, just this hiss/hum (like "shhhhhhh").

    I read evey post regarding JVM and G-System, and obviously the GREAT Laird white paper (and also every Laird's posts regarding noise and how to eliminate it), but it is still there.

    Today I wanted to record something, so I just plugged my guitar directly to the JVM, no FX at all, just guitar to amp. I re-discovered that my Marshall is a great amp, and a very silent one when guitar vol is way down, since the hiss/hum disappeared (it was minimum at high gain in the OD channels).
    Good news is I can record with my Marshall, I just have to disconnect the G and that's it.

    But I am still curious about it (sorry Elfredoo and Laird... )

    My question (finally): what does it means that the hiss goes away when the G vol pedal is way down?

    I already spent a lot in this problem, but I want to get rid of that noise: do you think the Sunday Driver could help?

    Thanks and regards,

    Martin

      khrisdk Everytime I read any ot the noise stories, one thing always makes me wonder:



      Have any of those complaining about an increase in noise levels tried conneting the same amount of effects in the signal chain as the amount of effects in the G-system?

      I have had a lot of different FX gear, all adding a little noise the system and coloring the sound.

      In my former systems, mainly build around different kinds of loopswitchers and multiple FX-processors, both parallel and serial setups, the base noise level has always been higher, no matter how many tricks I did.



      This is just something I have been wondering about since I have used so many different combinations over time and all of them had their weaknesses, especially when combining Stomp boxes and Rack effects

      Even the Guitar-Cable-Amp solution is noisy anyway.

Even when I got a GT-10 the hum was not there. I understand that we are dealing with a "per se"noisy environment, and I faced dozens of noisy scenarios, lik noisy guitars, bad cables, damage boxes, bad valves, untreated power lines, and more. But I expected a lot better from a 4500 u$s setup (G + JVM), and those expectations drove me that way.



      If I posted qustions here since 2009 is because I am sure I am doing something wrong, and a good result could be reach if I figured it out. I am not complaining, I am just looking for help.

      damcka I fixed the noise on my jmp-1, which is notoriously noisy, by putting an ISP decimator g sting in loop. I know it doesn't fix the problem....it only treats it - but it's the best option I can offer.
      • December 1, 2012
    • martinoto
      khrisdk Yes, I know it was maybe a little provocative the way i wrote it. Sorry for that.



      It is just that I have never really considered background noise a problem. When I play my old Marshalls "Old style" just with a Les Paul and a cable and volume at the sweet spot (aka at 11 ), or using stomp boxes they are noisy critters.

      My G-system is one of the very first, and I have never considered it noisy..It is run with a Triaxis, which is also noisy in itself, I am running a Sunday Driver in front of it, but that is a newer thing, and I have not really had as much effect from it as expected. I like it though, so it stays.



      The reason for my question was that thing about the difference between turning down guitar volume, and turning down G-System volume..

      Turning down the guitar leaves the entire FX and their background noise in the signal line, turning down the G volume probably cuts out the fx from the signal line, if you are using the volume post.



      I have tried a lot of different setups, and also running the G backend alone post Triaxis.

      There is a slight difference in noise level, but nothing serious, and not something that I would not expect when running an entire switching system in front of the amp input.

      I did some A/B testing with my original Rocktron PatchMate set up in front of the Triaxis, and had almost the same increase in noise levels. Buffers are also recommended for that I might add, but I have also run it with different buffers.

      I have an older setup with a Piranha, G-major and a Marshall Power amp, and have also used the patchmate with that, and the noise levels seems to be the same as the G-system.



      One of the main points is still probably getting the levels right.

      One major drawback with the G-system from my POV is that the Insert Loop works in mysterious ways.

      To get the right amount of signal to the pre you need to set up the loop send level at 10, but that lowers the return signal leaving the power section with a starved signal giving more noise from that



      My normal setup at the moment is the Sunday Driver at 12, or the input gain of the G at 8, which gives red leds, the loop send at 4, Loop return at 4, which keeps the signal levels even when cutting out the G backend from the signal chain.



      My alternative setup is the SD at 9 keeping the leds green. Insert Loop send at 10, not using the serial loop of the Triaxis, and going from the output of the Triaxis to the G insert, not using the loop of the Triaxis. hat way I get a better volume control of the return signal and making it as strong as possible without overloading the insert return of the G.



      The ultimate setup is probably a lot of buffers with boost in the system:



      One pre input on the G, One after Insert send, One before Insert return, probably also after Gsys output. For good measure some stompboxes could also use some buffering

      That way you keep the signal even and strong

      The G-system is a compromise, and fairly cheap compared to the complete solutions.



      Try getting a quotation from these guys for a comparable system:

      TC-Mike I highly recommend to read the included manuals about the editor's data structure and get aquainted with the "edit buffer" principle of the software, which basically just means that whenever you are working with the editor, you are working with copies of the preset data

      and you won't alter or overwrite any of your G-Major2 program settings unless you use the editor's "sync" function to transfer a preset from the editor to the corresponding memory location in the user bank of your G-major 2 hardware think of the Epeditor as an independent virtual G-major 2.



      More infos can be found in the read me.pdf and the included manuals of the editor (data management.pdf)



      If you have any questions, let me know..
      • June 16, 2009
    • TC-Mike
      TC-Mike if you want to save and share single preset files, click on the "G-Major 2" logo on the Editor GUI right of the virtual display, which will reveal a "preset file" open / save menu.



      You can also create File notes for your preset creations. (there is a little graphical glitch

      in the PC version while you are in the "Bank view" of the editor. As a workaround, just change to any other view of the editor, when filling out file notes for your preset creations)



      In the future it will be possible to upload and share presets via the forthcoming G-Major 2 preset vault on the TC website. Currently it just transfers you to the G-Major 2 product pages. Expect this feature to be ready mid july.

    We have finally delivered!
    If you connect your VoiceLive 3 (Extreme models too) to VoiceSupport 2, you'll see there is an update available. This is the first VL3 update since build 355 in February 2016. Please check out build 366 and let us know what you think.

    Build 366 includes the following:

    New looper feature!
    AudioCue lets you arm a loop to begin recording with your input. Select a volume threshold in the "Looper" menu, arm a loop track for recording, and cue recording the loop when your input is louder than the chosen threshold. When a loop is armed, you can press another loop footswitch to cancel. You can also choose whether AudioCue applies to every loop, or just your first loop! (AudioCue settings are saved with the loop slot, not the preset)

    Remastered metronome sounds, improved the behavior logic, and metronome mute/enable is available as a Switch-3/6 target.

    DSP improvements to the synth/vocoder.

    Added notifications to inform you when the looper is active.

    Handful of bug fixes including: missing popup messages, loop trigger settings, external loop control, and overnight MIDI timeout.

    So, my barely used ditto x4 has stopped working before I really got much of a chance to use it. It's been sitting on my board for a couple of months in my home studio, I used it a couple of times, it worked fine, now all the LED's are green and there is no function at all. when I unplug it and plug it back inall the led's are orange, then the far left one turns red, then they turn orange againm they they all go green and nothing works

    has anyone else had this problem? It's not power supply, have been powering it from a 9 volt 500MA plug on a voodoo lab mondo

    Can I do a hard reset? If so, How? I can't do a firmware update because it won't go into update mode

    Please get back to me, I've had a few problems with TC products lately and this is getting me down!

    I was talking to Bruce Egnater and the G-System came up and was informed that hidden inside the Renegade is a 15dB push switch for the loop, the amp's ship with the switch in the down position but when using the amp with the G he said I might get better results with the switch in the up position. He was right, the renegade is now silent even with my OCD pedal Boosted into screaming.

      TheFullNelsons Thanks for the info.... how much did you have to change the G system config after you changed this switch ( input, output, loop headroom etc ) so far I have found that the renegade and the G system have behaved very nicely together ( I have an OCD, Riot, Nova drive and BB Pre in the loops).



      I see that factory setting down = low so does that mean the up position is a hotter setting or does it mean it pads down a hotter signal?



      I am really very pleased with how things sound now but alway looking for that little change that will make things even better
      • April 1, 2011
    • LanBuddha
      LanBuddha It's hotter, I had to drop the G's output level to -3dB. The loop levels are 7dB and 2dB headroom. I was having a problem with my overdrives, the OCD had a buzz that I thought was a ground loop and when I had everything set to stop the buzz my Keeley DS-1 would sound terrible, I think the DS-1 could not cope with my best settings with my other pedals. They are 100% in sync now. I keep the OCD level low and boost the signal with a Atomic Boost to get a Gilmour lead tone, that could get a little noisy but not anymore. I had the amp on and out of the case and the difference in the noise level as you switch between the 2 settings is really quite startling.



      ----------------NEW BIT----------------





      I also use a Valvulator as a buffer before the G and have found that If you change the stock ECC83 valve for a ECC81 you get less gain and a more linear signal out of the Valvulator that works better with the G.The OCD has been replaced with a OKKO Diablo and my TC Vintage Tube Primer, replaced by a Xotic AC+. I use the Rothwell Heartbreaker as a lead boost to give more punch in solos, and together with the Jam Red Muck to get a spectacular Gilmour Wall tone.

    • LanBuddha
      bdalchow Blimey -8db on output, thats some difference, that amp has been well designed, who would of thought of that and how did you discover it? Looks like your tinkering has paid off and to get silence is alway a rewarding prize. I'm afraid my volume pedal has to be used to get silence between songs. Decimator could be my new purchase unless there is a magic switch in the JMP1, but I very much doubt it I'm playing stereo and wish my noise would be less of a nuisance.

      TheFullNelsons Hey Lan Buddha.... We have a very similar setup and I just ordered a sunday driver for my rig. I was wondering if you could let me know what levels you ended up with for the GS ( Loop Headroom, Input, Output, Loop switch position, etc ) and how you set up the Sunday Driver levels with your rig.



      I appreciate the help

      For what it's worth for my rig I ended up with Global levels as follows:



      GLOBAL:

      INPUT GAIN 0dB

      LOOP LVL 0dB

      LOOP HEAD 2dB

      VOL 0dB

      OUTLEV 0dB

      VOL POSINPUT

      VOL. MASTERGLOBAL

      EXP. MASTERPRESET



      I have the gain control on my Sunday driver set between 9 & 12 Oclock depending on the Gutar.

      Like this I have no real detectable tone loss compared to Guitar-Cable-Amp.



      Here's my rig.

      I run in stereo & with a Mesa Mark V in the insert Loop & I now use a Legacy 1 (Right G Output into the loop return) for my Right Channel.

      I was prev using one of my my X100B's for the other channel but I found the Legacy 1 works better as the 2nd head.

    I'm thinking of going in the direction of getting a modeling rig together. I haven't decided if I want I want to go direct, use a powered PA speaker, or a tube power amp and guitar cab. I have the gear needed to do all three. Preferably I'd like to continue using the G for some effects and as a MIDI controller as well as keeping a few pedals in the loops.


    I'm looking at the Avid Eleven Rack or Line 6 Pod HD Pro right now. Can't justify spending the money for an axe-fx at the moment. Anybody have experience with these with the G or have any other ideas about options I should consider?


    I should mention I do almost no high gain stuff, mostly clean, low gain, and a few crunch sounds. I tend towards Marshall-type sounds rather than Fenders.

      gravydb I have a Line 6 pod that I use as a secondary rig when I don't feel like lugging all my usual gear (or for a smallish gig)... and I just plug it straight into the PA. If you dial it in right, your average person will not be able to tell the difference between it and your main rig. I don't use it in conjunction with the G - it is a substitute for my entire rig. The Boss multi-fx boards are also excellent, in fact I think their fx quality is better than the Line 6 stuff, but that's just me.



      If I was interested in integrating my G with a modeling setup, I'd look at the Two Notes Torpedo units. The "Torpedo Live" rack version has spkr cab and amp sims (and a built-in powersoak if you wish to use your existing amp)... the Torpedo CAB 'pedal' just has spkr cab sims. Neither has any fx which is fine if you're planning on using your G with them. They are dedicated amp and spkr simulators, and they are phenomenal.

      elvis I used a PSA-1 with my G System for a while. It worked really well. I would put it up against other modelling preamps any day.

      neilbunker Torpedo live (according to their website) has power amp sims, not preamp. So that won't fit the bill. Looks like a cool unit for sure though.





      I tried a PSA-1 once, it was nice sounding for some stuff but I came to the conclusion at the time that it wasn't good enough to warrant replacing my amp, although I didn't spend tons of time with it. IIRC, it had some nice higher gain sounds but I wasn't crazy about the clean/edge-of-breakup sounds. Maybe it warrants a second look.

      Bread I had a POD HD Pro which I used with a pair of QSC K12s. I got rid of it and went back to valve amps and got a G System.



      I found that with the Pod I would always be tinkering with it - never getting a sound I was happy with. Also, the unit was unpredictable live and didn't come close to my current set up when played at gig volume - very different sound when you turn it up.



      I hated it - and it went on ebay.



      My friend has an Axe FX and that is a good piece of kit - it sounds awesome and second hand units are coming on the market now at reasonable prices. If it were me, I'd take a deep breath and get an Axe FX - you can also stick it in a loop of the G.

      neilbunker I've played through the Axe Fx, it's awesome. Unfortunately its not possible to justify the cost right now, especially since I'm not sure I'm going to like using a modeler on stage. I'm leaning toward Avid Eleven Rack right now, they are available used for $3-400, although Avid is not continuing to develop the product. I'm still open to suggestions though.

    Hello guys,

    Welcome to the new TC Electronic bass forum. We are all extremely excited about our new product range, and most of us are at Winter NAMM in Los Angeles right now introducing the range to the world.

    On our main site - www.tcelectronic.com/bass, we will upload videos from the show on a daily basis to let you guys know what's going down at the TC booth.

    Feel free to discuss what you think about the RebelHead and share any considerations about this, and I will chime in as we go.

    Very best

      komar Quite a bit of hype, glad to see it finally arrive! Almost sounds like I'm describing something other than a bass rig here, but small package with nice tight cabs... I can't wait to hear in person!



      Also, not only do I like the idea of short stack in-line speaker config for sound... it will be great for transport. I need to check stats for weight, but I bet they are not a back breaker like the SWR and Eden 4-10 cabs I lugged around in years past!



      Assuming the 2-12 pumps out a little more lows, can you pair a 2-10 cab high with a 2-12 cab low?

      rune Sure you can. You can use up to 3 RebelStack cabinets in any combination you like.
