    If you plan on using it for live performance, just buy it! Rather than write another review and repeat most of what's already been said about the GSP, I'll give you some advice...

    1 - Buy the Control 2 floorboard controller... It's that good! (and yes, it's way better, more flexible and easier to use than mating an FCB1010 with the UnO chip to the GSP)

    As soon as you receive your GSP, immediately go to mustbebeta-dot-com and download the mustbebeta vC63 firmware for it. It not only adds additional amps, cabs & effects, it also contains a host of additional features and functionality that truly takes the GSP to another level... It even gives the GSP the ability to load up to 10 user cabinet IRs!

    If you're not familiar with the mustbebeta firmware upgrades for the GSP1101, do yourself a favor and google it... You'll thank me later, I promise!
    Had mine for almost a year now with no problems. I know others that have had theirs going on 3+ years without a hitch.
    I'd give it a "7" with Digitech's official firmware. Mustbebeta vC63 brings it up to a solid "9" in my opinion.

    For the price it is very hard to beat. Compared to other similar products Ive found the models in particular (both amp and stompbox) to be far superior to the units over at line 6, sansamp, 11r, etc. HOWEVER! I cannot say to many good things about the mid gain low gain models (vintage marshalls, and fender amps) they all have an inherent "blanket" bass response that Ive spent and wasted hours trying to remove. (Ive come close! GSP1101 tip: on the Para EQ set the High at 8k with a narrow band) the Chorus flanger and phase effects are very good whereas some of the stomp emulations (digi death metal, grunge etc) are subpar. The harmonizer is also TERRIBLE! For my purposes the delays are OK and the reverbs aside from use on clean patches I find muddy up the distortion tones to heavily. As of right now Im only using this unit to supply FX for an Engl E530 and for that purpose its fine for now, although I am looking into TC electronic rack gear. One final positive note! I have found that in the FX loop of the ENGL it does not deteriorate the tone at all. Bottom line if your looking for a solid rack piece to fill in some pieces FX, amp modelling etc its does the job AND its made in the USA, noice! rock on!

      Comments about DigiTech GSP1101 Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

      Excellent FX Unit, Has some great sounds and you can change and save any one of them. My Godin nylon sounds like a Les Paul or a Strat through this unit. The tuner is excellent and the sounds are more noise free than I have ever heard in any FX boxes. I have Windows 7 and the software will not work with it and evidently they stopped updating the software soon after it hit the market. A stupid thing to do with a product this good. So you just change the sounds on the unit and not in the computer and you will be fine. This box has superb sound and plenty of changeable parameters. It is geared for the professional but simple enough for anyone to be up and playing quickly. If they had maintained software support, it would easily be five stars.

            Very clean with no noise. The defaults are fairly tame but they can be edited easily. All in all a very good unit.
            Well worth the money and more. I can recommend this without hesitation.

            After blowing up my digitech 2112, this one seemed like the natural choice. From the moment I plugged it in, it was doing exactly everything I wanted, but better. Best preamp I have owned to date, and all from digitech

            Comments about DigiTech GSP1101 Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

            Very versatile unit, beautiful lush verbs and delays. I use this with an Engl e570 rack as the main preamp. However, this unit's preamp choices are amazing and will satisfy any shredder or mega-metal head. The cleans are nice and the AC30 models are really great for a good blues tone. MAKE sure you use the included software for getting the really custom settings and backing up your sounds. Mu only complaint is the WAH is kind of lame IF you are using an external preamp due to where it falls in the chain. There is also some short comings with the effects loop when using an external preamp. I would like to see the "wah" option button programmable so I could program another effect for quick access on/off in place of the WAH.

            First off I have to say the controll you have over your tone with this thing is amazing. However the prests sound horrible, and you really have to do some digging to find the sound you want. The effects are limited, has good delay, good enough to get a good strong Rock or Metal tone. I find that the acoustic modulators straight up suck but, for me I just wanted a down and Heavy tone that wouldn't feedback and hiss all stupid on stage or in the studio and I found it!!! P.s. BOOO about no more updates! come on digitech we love you, love us back!!!

            Comments about DigiTech GSP1101 Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

            This is such a great box! It is easy to use and comes with excellent presets. I had a head, 4x12 cab and many stomp boxes but now I have the GSP1101, Control 2, Velocity 100 and 4X12 cab.

            Talk about simple!
            Wah pedal = gone
            Noisegate = gone
            Volume pedal = gone
            distortion pedal = gone
            chorus pedal = gone
            delay pedal = gone
            reverb pedal = gone

            All that and more is wrapped in this box. I highly recommend this preamp. It is versatile and the modulation effects are superb.

            Stop reading this and buy one. Remember to get the Contol 2 foot controller to compliment and utilize everything the GSP1101 offers.

                    I got this unit and out of the box I am impressed with the sounds I am hearing. First off I think it is very easy to use and dial in many good tones. I have tried the pod units and find this much simpler to navigate. In the past I have tried running effects processors through my JCM 2000 with no luck, the amp colors the tone too much. What I have been doing is playing through headphones to get a better idea of what the unit can do as an effects processor and amp modeler. What I think people do ineffectively is run the unit through an amp and speaker without taking into consideration the color the amp and speaker give the unit. The only con I will give the unit is that you will need the pedal baord to turn on and off simulated pedals. I was playing around with a SRV tone and wanted to kick in the overdrive and found myself having to edit the patch whcih took some time, had I had the board I would have clicked a button. But a seriously good unit, I would try it out first with headphones and dial in a good tone and go from there.

                        THis is an awesome preamp...everything in a 1 rack unit package. Great value, tone, & features. I am very satisfied with this and will not be replacing it anytime soon.

                        My only complaint is regarding the preamp loop feature. If you define the effect loop to act as a preamp loop it slaves all the master presets to use only the external preamp loop tone and does not allow the factory tones to be used with their original factory settings, this significantly changes all the stock/factory tones. I would have preferred that the factory presets never change and always use the internal settings or at least allow the user to globally select if the preamp loop is to affect all the factory settings or just a few user defined tones. I doubt many people are using this feature but am guessing it is best if you have a clean preamp that you love for all your tones. I would have preferred that only the preamp loop to be affected on the user settings and not the factory ones (which are great.

                        BTW if you hook this up to your PC/MAC using a USB cable the settings are extremely easy to adjust store copy etc. etc. The interface is fantastic if using a USB and the Digitech X-edit software...very easy to make, preview, name, and store tone changes.
