I bought this pedal about 3-4 years ago and I was amazed by it. It had so many features and tones that I tought I would never buy another pedal... The truth is: I didn't anything about good tone and sound. I think it sounds alright if you have a decent amp, but not as good as a tube amp.The other problem is, it's not very tough. It's at the point where the wah pedal won't work most of the mp3/record buttons are broken. So i can't create new effects or new amp combinations.I think you should save your money and buy the new rp1000. This pedal might have been hi tech 4 or 5 years ago, but its not gonna cut ist now.

I used a Fender Stratocaster and a Carvin amp while evaluating the GNx4. Don't buy this unit. I did and regret it! Here's the reasons why:A. This unit comes with 80 factory presets and 80 user presets. The 80 user presets are exact duplicates of the factory presets. The 80 factory presets can't be changed. of the 80 presets, only about 8 are not distorted. This means, if you want additional presets that are not distored, you have to progarm the unit. And the interface to do this is not user friendly. Which leads to the next itemB. To program requires one to enter the parameters (amp models, speaker models, reverb, etc) to set the preset up. The major problem here is getting the equalization (EQ) right. The problem here is that you can't here the effect of the control (center frequency and gain) while you're adjusting. You have to come all the way out of the program to hear the bass, treble, midrange and presence settings entered. Typically, it took me 4 to 5 tries to get the dry (straight tone on my guitar) to match the wet (tone from the GNx4) to match). If you don't get these tones to correspond, the tone of the istrument will change when you go to use the preselect. Not good when you're using it on stage.C. The last comment concerns volume levels on the factory and user presets. They are extremely loud. The levels are set at maximum from the manufacturer. This means none of the manufacturers presets can be used when performing. If you do, the change in volume is so loud you can't use it without turning down your amp. The user presets can be turned down but what a pain to have to lower 80 presets. It will take you hours to match the dry to wet volume levels.I can't recommend this unit to anyone.

Great but could be sturdier

By Cap10quarterz

from Winchester, TN.

See all my reviews

I owned this and while i was completely nuts over how much you could do with one unit, i was dissappointed at how cheap it was put together. Granted, it would have bumped up the cost, but I've a fan of pedals built like a tank. Plastics knobs and buttons tend to break (especially if you're running around on stage like a maniac, stomping on this thing). Needless to say, the knobs broke on me to the point all i could use was the "3","4", and "5" pedals. I had to use the wah pedal to turn on my distortion. So if you're careful- good buy. If you need military grade hardware- goodbye.

has run its course

By Lizardneck

from boise idaho

See all my reviews

Having had this unit since it's inseption 4 years ago, I have used and tweaked it in every way imaginable. I find myself using it mainly now for headphone practice and as a tuner only. For headphone practice it is a great unit and sounds really good for that. For live guitar sound however I feel it does NOT cut it and really doesn't produce a viable "true" guitar sound. I have used it with the supermodels which improved the sound alot but even those are dry and fake sounding. Not even close to the real thing. With the introduction of programmable tube amps with built in effects such as the Hughes and Kettner Switchblade(which I own) as well as the tried and true tube amps(have those too- 5150, Marshalls) that have been around for decades I find very little reason to use this unit for other than headphone practice now. It cannot come anywhere near the organic sound quality for guitar tone as a real tube amp does. GREAT headphone practice tool, but thats it.

My Central Musical Hub

By WorkingMansClub

from Nebraska

I use the GNX4 as a hub for my rig. I have a Axon controller via a M-Audio midi 8X8 controlling amps (Roland VGA7 and a ADA QUAD 150) for patch changes along with Soft synths with its output of a Motu going to a keyboard mixer and from the mixer to the Aux ins of the GNX4 and the balanced outputs of the GNX4 to the aux ins of the VGA7, because of its full range capabilites. The drums are controlled from the software run back thru the GNX4 drum machine. The use of the GNX4 in this way grounds all the componets as one thus no hum is present. I must say this could be the most underestimated unit ever, it took me a while to appreciate the possibilities as a work horse. I also was impressed with some of the patches created by people at the forum. The improved updates for interface were good also.Have Good Day...

It is a Beast

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got the GNX4 about 2 years ago and it still is in good shape. There is nothing this pedal can't do. And for the price it is a great deal. you could spend more money on buying stompboxes to equal the amount of options this baby has. 5/5 of course. I would highly recommend this to a friend.

Great for One Man Band

By PeeWeiner

from Houston TX

I love editing on my computer, but obviously you cant edit with out creating music first. Thats what I use this thing for. This is probably the best piece of equipment for this. I love that it has an 8 track and a sound library in easy-to-reach access. You can simply record a track of rythem or bass on and then with the spin of a dial record lead or any effect you'd like to add. The best part has got to be the memory capacity. If you got the right kind of memory card you can make your own effect with all the possible parameters and save it as your very own. This machine allows you to be very unique and inspires creativity. The only problem with it is that after just 2 years of good use some of the buttons have stopped working and it has begun to deny my memory card. I guess its just technical difficulties. But I would still remcommend it.

amazing

By Icarus-C.djF

I've had the gnx4 for about 2 years and if it broke I dont know what I would do. It has sooo many presets to chose from sometimes its overwhelming, you can always find a sound that matches your style of music no matter what it is. The only problem I've had is with the power supply that came supplied with the gnx4, it died within a year of purchasing it, but besides I've never had problems with it. I would recommend anyone who plays live music or records to buy this.

The weapon

By k0FtitLI2

from Venezuela

For my is really a weapon. Ultra versatile. Be patient to understanding how you can make everything with this "toy". When you take the way and understand how the monster is working you will have a long time for creating a lot of sounds. Recording is really amazing. In live connected to a amplifier I use the imput line of the clean chanel, But you need be patient to finding the mix in the amplifier to take the sound that you want. When you catch it all is easy. The first day that I used this unit wished to send it by the window and cursed Digitech. But now I love this unit. GNX4 is a weapon for creations. Buy it now.

WOW...

I do not personally own this awesome piece of equipment. However I have had some time to play around with it; I think it could possibly be the greatest pedal of all time! The versatility is unmatched...how many pedals could you play with that will take from Santana, to Van Halen, to Queen, and back to Stevie Ray Vaughn! I hope to have the money to buy this very soon. Digitech scores again.

Need to Read

By Blonde81Tele

from Norman, Oklahoma

See all my reviews

I have used the GNX4 in live gigs and recording applications. On stage, it is a plug and play workstation, however, to get the right "sound" for yourself does require some setup time (a must). You will need to filter thur all the great effects and amp combs to get your right sound. Then you can "warp" them togethere for more unique sounds(you can save these settings). A memory card is a must to use the on board recorder. My expression pedal has a clicking noise when using it but dosen't effect the preformace. In all, The GNX4 is an all in one guitar toy with unlimited upsides that requires some reading to unlock all the gems this workstation offers. In truth I don't need another pedal for a long time.

One of my old friends let me play with this one time, let me tell you it is very interesting, some very good stuff on it, i'm not big fan of digital equipment, but this thing wasn't that bad, it was real warm. great, just lil over priced in my opinion.

It's Got Everything!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is what it says, a "Guitar Workstation". If you are a song writer, if you practice alone alot, if you don't have a rhythm guitar player who will play the same chords over and over so you can learn the scale and build a solo this is going to be your best friend! It does take a little effort to get good with it, but anything worth something takes effort. Get it, It will make you better!

It does it all

By Gbulldawgz

from Columbus, GA

Mine's 4 months new. I love it. Its not as fizzy as my Line Six. It has great options and true 48v phantom power. I use condenser miks on my acoustic and they sound krystal! This is a portable studio and amp kit. Nothing gets any better. I bought a Micro Br and sold it. The GNX4 has more than that and my POD Live. It sounds great and I have made more recordings than ever in my life. I can arrange drum tracks, record on my PC and the Pro Tracks PC ware was flawless. No bass player? No problem. It has a guitar and bass simulation. It does take a few reads of the manual. I paced myself as some suggested. Built rugged for my use and travel. Output options cool. Recorder is cool. 8 drum kits is cool. Loading back track mp3 is cool. Mic option is cool. Haven't tried the models kit in reviews but those might be next. I have a lot of useful sounds and just love this GNX4. Great product from Digitech.

Great tool if you learn it!

By CleanStrat

from Hillsborough, NJ

See all my reviews

I'm convinced that all of the negative reviews are from people who didn't learn how to use the GNX. First of all, the package comes with Pro Tracks, so you can record up to 32 stereo tracks. The onboard recorder is more for capturing ideas on the fly. You can also map out drum patterns on your computer.The GNX sounds great if you read the instructions. There is a learning curve, but it's really not that steep. It's easy enough to get good sounds if you learn the basics and deep enough that you can really customize to your hearts content.The expression pedal does so much more than just wah and volume. It can control almost any parameter that you program it to. For instance, I use mine to adjust the amount of gain. The sensitivy of the expression pedal footswitch is also adjustable. There are so many options that you can really get creative with your setups. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this unit. If you have any problems, just go to the Digitech forum and ask other users for advice.

GNX4 Great tool, improvements needed.

By TDitch

from Ypsilanti

This is a great tool for practice and initial song composition. Record your own rhythms over a fair selection of drum styles, set tempos, punch ins etc. Add in the included PC based recording, editing, mix down software and you now have a nice little studio. The big problem, the contacts under the small buttons are fragile and they break easy under normal use. The two repair centers I talked with were of no help or requested a large hunk of change up front just to look at it. If the parts needed were available, this is something I could repair myself. And of course its out of warranty, thats when it breaks.

IT'S COOL!!!!!

By Doc Breiden

from Lansdale, PA

See all my reviews

I've been using the GNX4 for quite some time now (3 years) and I've never been ceased to be amazed by two things:1. The versatility of this device and,2. The love/hate relationship users have with the GNX4Allow me to address both.This device does exactly what it promises. It provides the guitarist at ANY level of experience a way to become more creative and become a better guitarist and have a heck of a lot of fun along the way. Does it take the place of a pedalboard loaded with vintage and boutique pedals? NO! Does it take the place of a multi-tens-of-thousands of dollars professional studio? NO! If you want all that then start saving your gigging money! What it does give you is all of the features you need to help you make your music better in a (relatively) compact little box.Of course there is a bit of a down side to all of this...YOU HAVE TO SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME WITH IT!If you want to jump right in and start jamming (and what guitarist doesn't?) then by all means do so. You'll probably find something in there that will make you grin. But don't just run through all of the presets and then pronounce this thing to be not worth the cost of the cardboard of the box it came in. This is not just about instant gratification here folks. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I spend this amount of money on something, I look at it as an investment that will require something more than a fleeting moment of my time and a breeze through the first five pages of the manual.Bottom Line: Be prepared to spend some time with it and you'll probably be more than happy that you own it!

Bravo..... Encore?

By Fahsie

from Marlette, MI

I have owned the gnx4 for almost 3 months now and still havent even explored its full potential. I recomend reading the manual. I know us guys are kind of hard-headed about that, but beleive me it makes a world of difference. The only bad thing I have to say about this is the recording quality. Its a little synthetic. Nonetheless it is a great peice of equiptment for any guitarist. I hope to see a new model that utilizes more versatility.
