Make a date with a HyperModel!
Don't just model—create! The folks at DigiTech have developed a genuinely new and bold advance in guitar effects with the unveiling of the ultracool GNX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal. Not only does the GNX1 GeNetX Guitar Processor give you a raft of amp and cab models, the real story is that you can take those models and morph them into hybrids that are only limited by your imagination. You can, for example, take a crunchy stack sound then merge it with a sustain-drenched cab model and save it as a completely unique hybrid. In performance, you can toggle between the 2 to create dazzling morphing effects. And this isn't simple fading, you are actually moving between 2 distinct amp/cab models creating an array of incremental sounds along the way. This Digitech device allows you to alter cabinet resonance and size with cabinet tuning to create entirely new amp and cab combos. It's loaded with studio-quality effects with eleven of them available at the same time. You might expect that a feature-laden multi effects pedal like this would require a steep learning curve. But with the GNX1's highly intuitive, user-friendly knob interface and LED display, you'll catch on quick in learning fast pathways to creativity. PC/Mac editor/librarian software is included so you can easily save models to your computer. Get your GNX1 Guitar Effects Pedal and start building a one-of-a-kind roomful of amps and cabs. With the Digitech GNX1, you don't just select and play models. You creatively recombine various portions of models into new "hypermodels." The Processor delivers more creative power than conventional modeling tools. Lets you create new tones as unique as your own DNA. The DigiTech GNX1 features amplifier channel switching, 24-bit converters, adds on studio-quality effects (up to eleven at once), comes loaded with 48 factory presets, a rhythm trainer, built-in expression pedal, and Learn-A-Lick phrase trainer.
It's a new age, and this is a new-age guitar processor. Order today.

This thing is great for recording direct. It has a number of excellent presets, including a nice rotary, a great tremolo that you can alter the speed of with the foot pedal, and some quality meat and solo distortions.HOWEVER... if you play it into an amp, it sounds flat and artificial. Really subpar compared to the Boss line of multi-FX pedals.Furthermore, while you can manipulate each preset, the layout of the nobs for doing so is complicated and it takes forever, not like with, say, the Boss ME-50, where you have stombox-sized nobs for everything and can alter them with ease.
I have used only stomp boxes until I bought this pedal. I got this used at a little ma' and pa' guitar shop for 60 bucks. It works great, and I am primarily a drummer, and the guitarist for my band wants to steal it! The only downside I would say, is that I blew my amp with it, playing to loud, but really thats a good thing! This pedal with crank the output! The only real downside is that unlike the rp series to switch effects you must press the little button next to the whammy once to go up so going up quick means pressing it a lot, fast, and to go down you have to hold it down for about 2 seconds which gets annoying. It makes up for its ability to have a bypass so if you have stomps like I do, that problem is cured. For the money, it has too many effects and tweakable things to pass it up. You WILL NOT be disappointed.
I wish I spent my money on something else. Now I've had this "like new" board and don't use it. And I don't use it because it's not up to par with others. There are some cool sounds and features, but only if you use it to record direct. Live it is a total noise machine. I've read and experimented and read some more, but it has massive noise. Regardless of how it is set up. The patches are almost impossible to volume match. It's great playing live, needing to change a patch mid song and have the volume be 40 times louder. I end up going direct to my amp. Even the bypass has massive noise.
Old acoustic player here...trying something new with an Ibanez electric, Kustom Vintage 50-watt tube amp, ...and a GNX1. Confusing pedal to use. My fault I'm sure. Also sure someone used to the infinite settings could do wonders, but for the electric novice? Nah. I usually turn it off and just play straight thru my amp using it's distortion and gain.
I?ve had this pedal for 3 years. It has many excellent presets. For example, Digitech?s whammy pedal costs $200 alone, and you basically get a simplified version of it here as one of 48 presets. So the value is quite good.That said, two major reasons why I no longer use it much:1. The GNX1, I feel, was made for recording straight into your computer. It sounds good when you do that. When you play it through an amp, however, or live, it tends to sound a bit flat compared to, say, Boss pedals. In truth, even recording straight into the computer, the doesn?t quite capture the rich tone of an amplifier.2. It?s annoying as heck to alter the presets. It?s nice that you can alter them and save them but altering the presets on the fly is out of the question. You have to go in and turn the tiny knobs at the top and navigate a small screen and a control panel and while you can do all of this, it takes ages.In the end I realized that if I get used my amp?s built-in distortion and effects, a Boss digi-delay and a chorus pedal, I could do 90% of the things the GNX can do, get much richer tone, and alter the effects much more conveniently and effectively. There are some great things here?killer whammy pedal preset, soaring solo, blissfully good tremolo preset, and a top-notch rotary preset?but if I could do it over again I would have probably gone in a different direction.
The GNX1 is an awesome pedal system. Great effects (specifically the wah, flange, and BassMan settings). The only problem is that you don't get any sound out of it after about a month. All the cables are in correctly but when you play something, nothing comes out of the amp! If anyone knows what it could be, email me. Otherwise, I'll bag my GNX1 and get a regular distortion pedal because that's all I really need.
I have had this thing for four months and I cant believe how many tones you can get from this thing. I run my GeNetX1 thru a Marshall MG15 and my guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul Special II. My favorite tone would be the Fender Bassman model,which is chunky, but theres plenty of high gain, and metal amps to. The amps are great, but I think some of the effects could be more full. I recommend this product for those who are trying to find their own sound. With the Warp fucntion, you can combine two models, and save what you just made and warp it again. The possiblities are endless. This was a great buy and well worth the cash.
I've had the GNX1 for just over a year now. I must say, I used it more when I was using my 25 watt Fender Practice Amplifier. But now that I have a 100w Marshall, I don't want to ruin the Marshall tone and only use the GNX1 on certain occasions. Much cheaper than buying many many stompboxes and pedals. This is worth every penny spent. Though, I wish I would've gotten the GNX3 or 4, simply because I would like to record on it.
Great Pedal with a great variety of quality effects. User Friendly. The best pedal for your money
Completely amazing. Better than any processor I've found. Very easy control and the amp modeling and hypermodeling is an incredible addition. Great effects and great value. I strongly recommend this to any guitar player out there.
