      Hoped that Guitar rack would work with the basic "Go Guitar"( as promissed in the TC-Helicon adverdtisements) but it does NOT.

      Guitar Rack does not recognize the basic "Go Guitar"and all amp's and efffects remain locked because of this regretably.

      I do not understand whu amp's and effects are blocked anyway, but especially why it does not recognize the TC-Helicon's "Go Guitar" device at all..

    Hall of Fame 2 X4Hall of Fame 2 X4Following the long TC tradition of powerful reverbs, Hall of Fame 2 X4 steps into the limelight as one of the biggest and most expanded reverbs on the market. With 8 reverb presets on tap, you do not have to bend down to fix your settings mid-song. With Hall of Fame 2 X4 you'll have your inner creative soundscapist gasping for more!

    How do you get too much reverb? Trick question – kinda like, how much bacon is too much? There’s never too much! With a wealth of studio-quality algorithms on tap and 4 preset buttons that double as MASH expression switches, HALL OF FAME 2 X4 REVERB is the ultimate ambience powerhouse.

    From tiny tiled bathroom stall reflections and earthy, cavernous reverberations to gargantuan, atmospheric ambience, HALL OF FAME 2 X4 REVERB has them all and more.

Aside from toggling between 4 different verb tones, each MASH switch can handle up to 3 effect parameters, reacting to how hard you press the switch with your foot.

    It’s well and good to have 4 preset footswitches at your disposal, but If you’re really getting into some seriously reverb-laden music, you might as well go all in and double up the stakes. HALL OF FAME 2 X4 REVERB’s two preset banks let you step on a brand new set of verbs, totaling 8 different easily-accessible presets. That should be enough to get you through the first half of your set...

    Mastering like you've never seen it before. That is exactly what Finalizer is, a tool for you to see and hear differently.

    Drawing on a long tradition of acclaimed dynamic processing and audio measuring, Finalizer comes with its own unique bag of tricks. TC Electronic’s decade-long commitment to designing the best tools for music mastering has resulted in a catalogue of innovations, that have become industry standards - from the magical System 6000 to modern studio classics like the Clarity M hardware meter.

     

    With its game-changing visual approach and powerful range of tweaked, improved and groundbreaking algorithms, Finalizer is your new one-stop mastering solution.

     

    The innovative SPECTRO LAB overview features three different readouts that provide detailed and useful information about your track, and assist you in making fast and accurate mastering decisions. The never seen before Spectral Dynamic Contour (patent pending) shows you the dynamic and spectral characteristics of the entire track at a glance. The high-precision Real Time Spectrum provides spectral details for a quick visualization of the real-time peak analysis and a moving average real-time RMS analysis. The Average Spectral Curve is extremely useful for comparing your music to reference tracks by showing you the average energy for each frequency band over the duration of the song.

     

    Finalizer’s sleek and minimalistic design is optimised for comparing A/B tracks against each other or against your preferred reference tracks, making it easy to keep an overview of all your adjustments. Since the Finalizer mastering software is connected to finalizer.com, you an always reference your own tracks to trending hits and past and present classics. This gives you all the information you need to position your project up against what else is out there.

     

    With a wealth of powerful equaliser algorithms, Finalizer allows you to fine-tune your project in detail. Take your pick from a broad range of parametric EQs, low/hi cut filters, low/hi shelving EQs and Dynamic EQs that let you tailor your tracks to taste - with broad strokes or with surgical precision, as you see fit. With Finalizer you can easily obtain the perfect stereo image by tweaking and designing the spatial properties of your track. TC Electronic’s famed full-band and multiband compressors let you balance your tracks and pull specific elements to the fore with extreme precision, thanks to the combination of refined versions of our award-winning System 6000 algorithms and groundbreaking new ones.

     

    Finalizer’s intuitive signal processing modules give you an overview of the signal chain from the earliest preparation stage, through equalizing, stereo adjustments and compression to the final loudness limiting, where your track gets ready for export. Because before you upload your tracks to your preferred streaming services or send them off for cutting to vinyl, they’ve got to be perfect.

     

    Instead of starting from scratch for every new project, Finalizer comes with a wide range of easily adjustable presets for different scenarios designed by professional mastering engineers.This provides the perfect starting point for your mastering workflow. Naturally, you can create your own presets, tailor-made for your favourite genres, so you can provide tracks with your signature finishing touch consistently.

     

    All in all: Finalizer can help you bring your mix to the next level

    Lab Gruppen CA SeriesLab Gruppen CA Series

    Lab Gruppen introduces the CA Series: Energy Star* Certified, compact, simplified amplifiers for commercial installations.

     

    Kungsbacka Sweden, 20 August 2019: With an enviable pedigree in the world of high-performance amplification, having defining benchmarks in sonic performance, power density, reliability and energy efficiency for over 30 years, Lab Gruppen introduces the Energy Star* Certified CA Series amplifiers for commercial installations.

     

    The new CA Series amplifiers are a cost-effective solution ideal for bars, restaurants, corporate environments,
 retail destinations, hotels, and many other applications where background music or PA systems are needed.

     

    Lab Gruppen’s Energy Star* Certified design conserves energy and reduces ownership costs. The CA series 
amplifiers have a flexible power scheme with automatic power On/Off based on the input signal, which reduces 
consumption when a signal is not present. These amplifiers are convection cooled, eliminating fan noise and
 making the system silent for sensitive environments. They are offered in 60W, 120W and 240W, with each version available in one or two channels.

     

    For installers, the CA series are easy-to-install amplifiers that facilitate faster installations, reduced costs and increased efficiency. The amplifiers offer flexible mounting options with included brackets for surface mounting and various rack-mounting configurations. This adds extensive flexibility as a single product and can be housed in a half 19" rack or full-rack enclosure. Connectivity is also flexible with a balanced line input and parallel mono-sum RCA. A front panel master volume and bass/treble control makes it easy to adjust settings.

     

    The CA series can also incorporate a remote volume control with Lab Gruppen’s CRC-V series of wall control accessories. The CRC-V is equipped with a single volume control knob, with integrated illumination, and an RJ-45 connector for use with any CAT5 or CAT6 cables in a single-gang/EU wall enclosure format.

     

    Lab Gruppen CRC-V SeriesLab Gruppen CRC-V Series

     

    The CA series Commercial Install amplifiers can accommodate a wide range of applications such as a single 
8 Ohm speaker per channel, dual 8 Ohms speakers or a 4 Ohm load per channel, a line of 70V or 100V high impedance speakers with transformer tappings, subwoofer and satellite set in 8 Ohms mode, two channel models driving two zones.

     

    These compact amplifiers make a great system solution with Tannoy install loudspeakers. They are the perfect
companions to Tannoy CVS and SAT/SUB speaker ranges.

     

    Matching Solutions with Tannoy CVS and SAT/SUB Speaker RangesMatching Solutions with Tannoy CVS and SAT/SUB Speaker Ranges

     

    Håkan Alfredsson, Product Manager for Lab Gruppen, said: "Imagine this: you have the need for extra speakers 
in a bar, and you have no space for racks or extensive cabling. The CA series amplifier can be placed almost
 anywhere while Connecting is simple: just plug it in and turn it up. This was the initial thinking behind the CA series.

     

    Thinking a bit further, we saw a general need for simple-to-use products for all types of small to midsize commercial applications. The CA series fills a gap where Lab Gruppen has not been present until now. We are proud to present this series with building blocks of small, simple, and cost effective units filling all the audio needs in commercial spaces."

     

    CA series commercial install amplifiers will be available for shipping in October 2019.

      Nice, just tried it without a Go guitar interface....

      Really like the graphical interface interface. 

      is the polyphonic tuning feature only available with the Go Guitar interface ? Works only chromatic when using the app with an iRig interface.(tuner is set to "Poly" in settings)

      Cheers,

      Mike

      Hey @TC-Mike,
      The polyphonic tuner actually isn't accessible with Go Guitar.  The polyphonic tuner is locked by default along with the majority of pedals and amp sims and other elements.  Unfortunately with Go Guitar being an analog device, it isn't able to unlock Guitar Rack.  Go Guitar Pro however does unlock Guitar Rack and would give access to the polyphonic tuner.  There is a Knowledge Base article here listing all the gear that is capable of unlocking Guitar Rack.  Cheers!
