    It's great to see the TC Forums up and running. I hope that this forum will eventually replace the one on the gear page.

    Just to kick things off:

    Has anyone been making patches for more etheral, ambient guitar sounds, i.e., Robert Fripp type effects? If so, how are you doing it??

    Looking forward to the editor where we can actually send patches to each other. I have a few that others might be interested in but it's tedious to type in all of the parameters....

      gbtommasi I did it:



      now i have not got parameters values here, but basically it is how it works for me:



      - serial routing

      - intelligent pitch shifting, an octave up, then you could add a fifth, or a fourth up for a more complex harmony. No dry signal (100% wet, that is, only harmony out);

      - dual delays, with feedback controlled by expression pedal and no dry signal out (100% wet);

      - long hall reverb, with no dry signal (100% wet);



      then, you control how long the sound will last with expression pedal (more delay feedback). And of course you sweep effect in and out with volume pedal (placed in the 'in' position)



      caution, then, because setting hi feedback levels, especially on 100% wet chain, will cause signal clipping very easily and unwanted 'infinite' feedback which will destroy your hears



      it works pretty nice, though is not comparable with those famous eventide crystal effect.



      hope this helps

      ny10547 Any chance you could at least post some dual delay settings for your ambient sound. That is the delay I have a lot of trouble with. I think I can muddle through the rest.



      I hope TC can do some updates that will give more ambient sounds like the Eventide and the AxeFX. Not sure if it is possible....just a dream.



      Thanks for the post.

      gbtommasi yep i will write delay parameters down next time i go to my rehersal studio, where the g-system lies



      today or tomorrow.



      Of course, you may find there are better ways to do this, and also maybe improve my settings.



      In this case, please let us all know

      aksman Throwing a volume swell into a loop helps a lot.

      gbtommasi well delays are just set in a very random way, it's about 1100 ms on right channel and 800 on left. But you can really experiemet what suits you better..

      jhbpa I'd be a happy camper just to get a patch for the effects pedal latency.

      That's probably all ya gettin'



      We've been waiting so long that folks started imagining that they were going to get extra effects such as Rotary and Volume Swell...but apparently not.

    hey everyone...well, at least once folks get word of this forum!

    I picked up a G-Major off eBay and noticed that its ring controls were not working right. They wouldn't go sequentially thru their lists, they'd jump around acting like a dirty pot. I spent sometime working them back and forth and they improved to near perfect. My question is, can I go in there and hit them with some electronics cleaner to remove any grit or grime or are they not like a typical POT type of control? It's in my rack and I figured I'd wait to open it up till I need to but figured I'd ask now before it's absolutely needed and time to panic.



    kudos to t.c. electronic for creating this forum!! It'll be a great way to connect with other users!!

      gtrplyr Hey DTown



      I don't have an answer for you, but I thought I'd say hello as I just registered myself.

      jakejoseph I have the same problem. I switched from playing guitar to playing bass about a year ago and left the G-Major sitting - now the rotary controls are doing exactly the same thing Dtown described.



      Any wisdom on this TC?

      Erock Ther is a yahoo group for the G major, in the files section they have the fix for that. You have to take it apart and clean the dials. It is a common problem.

      jakejoseph Hey Erock - can you post the instructions? I have tried to join the Yahoo list and have not been successful as of yet.

    Hello guys at TC,

    i am really happy to see there is a TC official forum eventually! Hope lots of TGPers will join.

    Now let's try to make this a resource

      tore Hi all and welcome to forum. I hope this will turn to be a great ressource for G-System and our other guitar products.

    All four loops are constantly sending signal, which is cool for running 3 way set-ups, but I would like to use some external analog delays and reverbs. With the loops set-up this way, the moment I turn on the loop, I hear the trails from the notes I played before the loop was engaged. Is there any way to change this option? It would really help me out.

    Thanks

      tore That's a very good point, but I'm afraid that it would require a hardware change as the entire loop section is 100% analog.



      We might be able turn off all the loops by cutting the signal right before the loop section - before it get's converted to analog, but then you wouldn't be able to use any of the loops at all.

      fatdog (I know this is an oldie)



      Maybe 2 remote triggered AB switches might work?



      i.e. Set up a bypass loop ( -AB=BA- ) for the delay, and use the relay switching on the G-system to turn on both switches at the same time the patch is activated.



      So the delay unit only gets input signal the instant that the patch is selected.
