GK-3 Divided Pickup—attaches without drilling to any electric so it can work with the VG-99.
With three powerful new processors at its core, plus expressive performance controls such as a ribbon controller and dual D BEAMs. The light-sensing D Beam controller offers direct manipulation over a variety of preset options such as rotary speed (Slow/Fast). The VG-99 has a versatile housing that allows for on-stage, tabletop, or rack mounting, the Boss VG-99 V-Guitar synth system raises the bar in guitar-modeling and performance technology.
The GK-3 Divided Pickup attaches to any steel-stringed electric — no drilling necessary — and delivers accurate performance data to guitar synthesizers. The GK-3's slim-line design enables ideal placement on the guitar.
The VG-99 contains a wide range of guitars and amplifier models, and it even models two signal paths at once. For example, one virtual guitar could be a humbucker-equipped electric and the other a nylon-string guitar. Add to this the sound of the actual guitar being played, and it's possible to simultaneously have the sound of three different guitars playing simultaneously.
Modeled guitar, amp and effects paths can be active at the same time, or they can be dynamically switched or blended. Players can control the switching behavior between virtual guitars and/or amps by foot controllers, buttons on the unit, or according to picking dynamics.
The VG-99 includes an onboard guitar-to-MIDI converter for direct connection to keyboards, sound modules and soft synths, a digital out and a USB port for direct audio and MIDI connection to computers. The VG-99 also boasts an intuitive and state-of-the-art on-screen patch editor.
A Freeze feature onboard the VG-99 makes it possible to play a chord or a single note and have Freeze sustain it until you decide to let it end, giving guitarists controlled and unlimited sustain.
Each modeled guitar in the VG-99 can have its own tuning: the virtual humbucker electric could be tuned down four or five steps for a heavy sound, for example, while the nylon string could be tuned as a 12-string, and also tuned down four or five steps at the same time. Any user-defined tunings are also supported so the player can switch instantly between tuning setups without physically switching guitars or having to manually retune.
Versatile I/O, including USB, S/PDIF and XLR provide pro connections for virtually every type of music production and performance on stage to professional studio recording.
If you can imagine it, the VG-99 can probably do it! Order now.
