hello i am looking for a Multi FX pedal now and i am between a boss GT-8 and a digitech GNX4. which one should i get?
#3
i prefer the gnx4 for the style and how easy it is, but if the sound is like for the rp300, i'd go for the boss because de rp300 sucks
#6
GNX4. Digitech is the ****. I have used both...the GT-8 is rediculously complex and has pretty useless presets. i recorded with the GNX3 recently and it sounded AMAZING. the next problem you'll have if finding an amp that wont actually make it sound WORSE.
a little lie says you'd like nothing better.....

this thread makes me chuckle

im not even going to go on, but i'd say for a guy like you, just take the lin6 - for modelling look no further than line6

a lot of upsides including tone, options, and UPDATES - not to mention you never stop with line6, they have a lot of stuff to fool around with (like software, more than just edit - it can act as guitar port and a direct recording device better than the others)

but im not fan of any floor multifx except the g-system

PODxt live > every multi effects ever created still.

in USD

Line 6 PODXT Live Pedal $399.99

Boss GT-8 Guitar Effects Processor $445.00

DigiTech GNX4 Guitar Workstation $499.95


You better go to pizza hut, because you just got P-zOwned!!!
#13
no because the Boss GT-8 has way better effects and is better for live playing and just jamming, its not complex, once you sit down with it is easy to use and has the best distortion out of any of these units, once you learn to use it to its potential it is amazing, and if you want to record all you have to do is buy a cable and use any recording program and you're set

everything you just said was a load of crap

dude dont get the digitech, trust me! just choose one these Korg, Boss, Line6. the only reasons why digitech are well known because of their exaggerated advertise in magazines, not because of their quality.

I used Boss and hated all of them. They had a flat cold tone that had no mids no matter what i did. I tried a digitech gnx-1 and haven't turned back since and i used the boss gt-8, the mt-2 metalzone, ds-1 ,overdrive,chorus etc....all sounded terrible no matter how i had set them or which guitar,amp,cable etc i used. It is all in the ear of the beholder though. I am looking to exp with some others though such as vox, xt live as well but, i have no idea how those are.
#18
single effects........ all the way
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

I have both the PodXTL and the GXN4 right now because a friend let me borrow it. I don't use either in front of my amps, but for recording/silent practice/jam workstation tools, they are great little devices IMO. I use mine all the time when it's late, and I don't want to wake anyone up. Nothing is going to beat a real tube amp and good pedals, but these things can get some really good sounds for recording/PA or headphones.

The GNX4 beats the PODXTL in fidelity and features, the Pod smokes the GNX in simplicity and ease of use IMO after using both. As far as FX, the GNX sounded just like the digitech stomps to me, so meh. The unit overall sounded better to me though, so I also liked the FX better on the GNX. The pod has more tweaks for the amps and recording sim setups, ie. mic placement sim, so I do like that better about the POD. However, the GNX amp sims aren't too shabby. The GNX4 has a ton more features though, that don't require using any software on the computer unless you want to. The GNX4 has a built in Jamman, Whammy w/harmonizer, drum machine, and 8 track recorder. It can also use 2GB compact flash cards to carry songs, loops, sims, practice MP3's, etc., so you can carry several cards and have a huge bank, and you don't need software to record. It also has the option of recording a dry track along with a wet track for a DI setup to allow reamping. It has USB recording capability, XLR and balanced 1/4 outputs for routing different sources to the outs, and it has a DBX mic preamp built in with true +48V phantom power. It has the ability to change amp channels on the amp/cab sims, so you get several options for each amp sim, along with a Genetx channel which is a combo of both amp channels morphed into one, on the fly. It's actually an incredible machine, but you really have to take some time to learn it, it's no where near as easy to use as the pod. I never even cracked the manual on the pod. I had to read the GNX4 manual cover to cover, and I still had to go in the FAQ section for help for certain routing functions. It's definitely not "plug and play".

Why don't you go fvck yourself with a piece of razer wire, no one loves you.

My post is probably the most informative yet.

The korg is a great sounding effects processor and is nearly half the price of all the other competitors. and you can download updates and patches and have a patch editor.

Would someone please enlighten me in why the Korg AX-3000G is not the best value.
#23
sure the gnx4 has a lot to offer, but your tone will be too processed. means your tone will be to digital. dont buy the gnx4 if your planning to use it live.

oh defenatly, because your post just helped everyone out so much

i'm going to tell you a secret - all these multi-effects SUCK HORRIBLY, if you want value go and buy something like an MP1 or an intellifex on ebay

Wrong people, a new multi-fx is here to wipe the floor with all of them.

KORG AX-3000G mult effects!

Line6 Pos XT LIVE £339
Digitech GNX4 £359
Boss GT8 £285

Korg AX-3000G £179.

I think there is a new winner, to be quite honest, in sound quality and great value.

I'm gunna back you up here, cos i own several single pedal effects, and im not pleased. Im actually going to buy a multi effects unit soon, cos i cant be assed with the terrible tone sucking, patch cable after patch cable, noise creating pedals.

I'm sure someone is going to come along and say "OooOo Single effects are better, they offer better tone shaping and more options!"

Err no they don't, if they did dont you think all the famous guitarists we all know and love would be using single effects. Well they dont! They use Rack units, which are multi-effects and offer a lot of tweaking capabilities.

Single effects are only decent if your after one effect and are a bit short on cash for buying big rack units.

Disagree or agree with me, i dont care. Thats my opinion and i believe multi-effects are better than single pedals.
#30
Well, If you buy a GNX4 Im going to tell you right now that single pedals WILL suck the tone out of your amp, BUT 10x less than a multi effect pedal, if you get one and its less than 1000 dollars its not worth it. You wilol let it sit in the corner for 2 years. Atleast thats what happened to mine.
