      TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller (153004)
Availability:  


Uncompromised effects, loops, amp switching, floor control, and routing flexibility.

The TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller delivers an uncompromised package of effects, loops, amp switching, floor control, and rig integration. It's equipped with two DSP sections that provide the very highest-quality effects on the market. Choose between a rack and a floor-based setup, decide how the effects are routed, tailor the footswitch layout, and select from more than 25 different onboard effects. And it's all built into a rock-solid roadworthy case with 18 giant chrome switches. Extras include 3-band EQ, a smooth noise gate, MIDI implementation, and a USB port for software updates.

On the Floor or in the Rack?

Do you prefer to have your pedals right next to you or would you rather secure them in your rack? The GFX01 19" 1U effects processor can simply be removed from G-System and rack mounted, leaving the decision up to you. A single cable connects the GFX01 with the G-System floor unit, putting your stomp boxes and messy cables out of sight while keeping the power and control under foot.

Analog "True Bypass" Loops

Preserve your original tone with the four analog true bypass pedal loops, all under preset as well as "on-the-fly" control. A fifth loop can be used for inserting a preamp or a fifth pedal in your setup.

Rock-Solid User Interface

Direct access user interface is via six rotary switch encoders. Not only does the heavy-duty chrome switch protect these encoders housing, but it also protects vital components below. With no vulnerable plastic knobs and no obvious openings, G-System is sealed against dust, dirt, moisture, and spills on stage.

Chromatic Tuner

With the full chromatic tuner you can always keep an eye on your guitar tuning. By pressing and holding the tuner switch, the outputs will mute and precise tuner information will be displayed on the LED. Hitting any switch will instantaneously un-mute the output and send you back into the play mode.

Pre Effects

Effects that are typically used prior to your lead effects are found in the pre effects section. They feature a high-impedance instrument input and full 96kHz/24-bit conversion and processing. This high resolution processing ensures maximum preservation of the guitar's original harmonics, which are vital to the character of any overdrive pedal or preamp.

Filters

The filter section allows you to select between touch and manually controlled filters, ranging from wah wah over formats to high peak resonance filters.

Compression

The compressor section enables perfect dynamic control of the previous filters including a pumping-style compressor or the more transparent compression style that gives smooth dynamic control and lengthy sustain

Analog Pedal Loops

Any disengaged pedal will eat into your guitar tone. The 4 analog loops in G-System give you full preset control as well as on-the-fly enabling/disabling, allowing "true bypass" of any pedal. The fifth loop is custom designed for preamp insertion. The buffered driver design of the insert loop allows extra-long cable runs with no loss of audio quality.

Amp Switching

Four relay switches give you remote analog control of preamps and amps. Relays are under G-System preset.

Post Effects

The post effects section includes all the traditional effects that belong after the "lead" section.

Noise Gate

The post effect section features an ultrafast noise gate allowing removal of background noise from potential high gain pedals or preamps when not playing.

Modulation

Modulation effects of your choice, including the famous TC chorus, flangers, phasers, tremolo, vibrato, and more, are available in the modulation section.

Pitch

The detune feature adds to your stereo image, while whammy and octaves allow for more effected sounds. The regular pitch shifting features up to a 2-octave shift.

Delay

The delay section sports more than 6 different effects, including legendary 2290 dynamic delay, reverse delay, tape echo, and more. All delays feature true "spilover" allowing the repeats of the delay to ring out across any preset change. Tap tempo is included and can of course be tied to MIDI clock.

Reverb

Reverbs from the famous TC pallet are included. Plates, rooms, springs and halls are available in the reverb section, all specifically tuned and tailored for guitar.

But wait there's more . . .

G-System houses many extras. To mention a few, you get an ultrasmooth noise gate and 3-band EQ. A boost function makes your fills or solo stand out at the flick of a switch. All tempo-based effects can be individually controlled by tap tempo or MIDI clock, and numerous parameters are under expression pedal control. The included USB port means you'll be able to keep your G-System up to date with future software releases from TC Electronic.

TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller Features:

  • Multi-effects processor on the floor
    Up to 9 simultaneous effect
    Fast and smooth preset changes featuring delay spill-overs
    4 switchable mono loops for your favorite effect pedals
    One additional loop insert point dedicated for preamps
    4 x 9V DC outlets for powering your effect pedals
    USB connection for software updates
    Ultimate flexibility as the board can be separated allowing you to place GFX01 in a 19" rack while leaving the control board on the floor
    MIDI for control of additional external MIDI units
    Connections for 2 expression pedals

  • The best system effects period

    As reviewed by Stringblade on 6/7/2010

    If you are looking for a great effects system look no further. The Gsystem has everything, it ties all your effects and amp control all from the same foot pedal. It has the legendary TC Electronic great sounding effects, and adds to it the ability to loop in 3 different stomp boxes that can be part of the signal chain which can be preset for each patch. This allows you to add a distortion pedal in a preset with out tap dancing. If that all wasn't enough it awill also switch amp channels either by the dedicated footswitch out or via midi. Also TC Electronics keeps updateding the firmware and you can upgrade for free, to keep current.

  • G System

    As reviewed by Jeremy Lovins on 6/6/2010

    I have played with many different setups, and the g system is the best I have use to date. If you want to use your amp's, pre-amps then it is the best for its price range. While it is not plug and play, once you get it setup for you, you don't have to mess with it much. The way it does mulitiple amps, I'm not a big fan of. Over all I am very satisfied with my purchase.

  • Exactly what I needed

    As reviewed by Nick on 8/30/2011

    I bought this system because it lets me run a single cable back to a rack where everything, including the handful of pedals I still need, is hooked up. The flexibility I get with this system, coupled with presets for everything, are awesome. It's not as easy to set up as a bunch of pedals, but it's so much better once you figure it out. All of the effects are top notch, unlike other multi-effect units. In fact, many of the effects on here are better than TC's standalone units, in part because they are so much more configurable. I will say that when you first plug it in, you will probably notice a lot of hum - you'll want an Ebtech Hum Exterminator to go with this unit (TC's forums have a good walkthrough on setting that up). The unit is incredibly solid - I think it must be stainless steel. It weighs a good 20 lbs. I don't think any amount of abuse could ever break this thing.
