DigiTech recently debuted the GNX2000 Guitar Workstation, a full-featured, multi-modeling digital effects processor for recording on the road. Inspired by the GNX4 Guitar Workstation, the GNX2000 offers two-way computer connectivity via a USB interface for recording, as well as additional I/Os to handle other instruments, vocals and monitoring. The GNX2000 also offers both 1/4-inch and XLR outputs to send signal directly to an amplifier and the P.A. system.
The DigiTech GNX2000 offers Digitech’s Hands-Free™ computer recording, which is enabled by an onboard USB interface. Also included is DigiTech’s Pro Tracks Plus™ (PC) recording software, which enables four channels of 24-bit audio to be streamed to the computer while playing two channels back, all with zero-latency monitoring, as well as X-Edit Editor/Librarian software. A dbx low-noise microphone preamp with its own phantom power supply enables users to capture nuances from acoustic playing. Wet/dry recording capability enables a processed stereo signal and a mono dry signal to be streamed to the hard drive recording system simultaneously, letting the user re-process the signal on the computer after recording it. Dry signals recorded on the computer can be re-routed back to the GNX2000 for processing with any of its many onboard effects and sound models. More than 100 professional drum patterns are available at the touch of a footswitch.
Balanced XLR outputs with speaker compensation can drive a P.A. using DigiTech’s acclaimed cabinet modeling, advanced CIT™ (Cabinet Imaging Technology) or feed a recording console with the built-in DI box. The 1/4-inch jacks drive guitar amps in mono or stereo and allow the user to control levels.
Onboard effects include amplifier modeling based on classics such as the 1965 Fender Twin Reverb, 1957 Fender Tweed Deluxe, Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, Vox AC30 Top Boost, Marshall JCM900, Fender Bassman, Ampeg SVT and more.
