USB output offers direct access to computers!
The ACS-SA nylon string electro/acoustic guitar has remained a constant favorite among players looking for amplified nylon string sound live and in studio. The new ACS-SA/USB features a highly figured natural flame leaftop over a silver leaf maple body, ebony fingerboard, custom onboard preamp, ¼” output, 13-pin capabilities for synth access and now comes with a USB output for direct & easy access to computers, which is ideal for recording.
The ACS blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. Although the body is chambered, response from the maple top is more typical of a solid body design than that of a traditional acoustic guitar. This design results in an instrument that is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even in a live & loud band setting.
The engine in all the ACS models includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system from the RMC Pickup Company. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to Roland GR-Series guitar synthesizers.
The SA (synth access)
The Godin Multiacs that use the RMC Polydrive system can be recognized by the individual transducer saddles under each string. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector, which provides these guitars with direct access to Roland GR-Series synthesizers. The RMC system with synth access is featured in the Multiac Nylon SA, the Grand Concert SA, the Multiac Steel SA, ACS-SA, ACS Slim, the Multiac Fretless and the Multiac Jazz. The key to the exceptional synth tracking of the Multiac lies not just in the electronics but also in the carefully selected and balanced blend of different wood used in its design. All of the materials used are the result of extensive prototype testing to achieve the best possible combination of plugged-in guitar sound and synth tracking.
SA Output Section
All of the Multiac SA models are equipped with two outputs. The ¼" phone output works with a regular guitar cord. The 13-pin connector provides hexophonic (a separate signal for each string) output that is compatible with a number of devices most notably the Roland GR-Series guitar synths.
