Same here Marcus,I have no idea. blink.gif
I took those specs from their website,I'd be hard to write it all manually.
But I'm sure isn't nothing that important since they are using short name for it.
Btw,I hate those short names,don't you? laugh.gif

THD means total harmonic distortion.. and instead of me using wobbly english trying to explain it, there's a great article on wiki about it:

G-System is a one year old product, until this year he used G-Force for YEARS, and just switched to G-System recently wink.gif

Yeah,I know that,not sure if it's caused by product quality since it's same thing as G-Force,floor edition.
I believe it's more related to marketing and buck. wink.gif

Great piece of gear Muris. Another great buy. smile.gif

I would always say that Processors don't sound good when playing live, but with this unit and it's pricetag... I would reconsider smile.gif

First we must describe what processor is. smile.gif
If processor tries to do gain/dist work,it always ends bad.
Like on some Zoom,Digitech etc unit.
But if it's related only to effects,then the result is pretty nice. wink.gif

Yes off-chorus wink.gif I didn't say that this processor acts as a distortion modeller unit, I just complimented it's quality. I'm sure it's a great unit. There are a lot of mulitFX units that don't do a good job on effects either, and in my book that's a lot because I'm not a proc fan, but as I said, with this unit I would really have to reconsider.

Spot on!
I didn't use lots of efxs as well,bit of delay and some chorus here and there.
But with this G-Force,options(good ones) are open wide. wink.gif

What effects do you use from the device on gigs? I'm guessing that you've used it already...

I would be happy really to use only those 4 effects from that unit and it will definitely show on a gig. Must buy something similar as soon as I get my hands on some $. smile.gif
