What surprised me, however, was its versatility afterward. The GNX4 has a decent on-board recorder, but it is absolutely essential if you are doing a live show. Though daunting, its pedalboards become almost completely intuitive, as do its jam-man and amp creation features. Once a bass and condenser mic are plugged in the GNX4 can act as its very own mixing board, all live. I've managed to sing and loop guitar and bass tracks at the same time all the while switching sounds. Truth be told, I haven't even scratched the surface of the GNX4's capabilities because I haven't had the time, and sufficed to say I've invested much, much time because it's a gem to play with.
On the physical side the GNX4 is very very sturdy, and despite the fact that I've already put it through situations that would destroy most DigiTech plastic pedals, its metal exterior has proven incredibly tough and durable, in fact I'd warn you to stow it in your car carefully as during a fast stop it flew threw my car and nearly murdered me, and did manage to smash my car stereo into pieces...demonstrating that it is, despite its size, surprisingly light (The GNX4 did not receive a scratch).
Qualms include the GNX4's default of setting an incredibly (INCREDIBLY) loud 4 beat click before recording a song, and for that matter the fact that it requires a lot of tweaking when hooked up to an external output. The JamMan, also requires a bit more work to operate than I'd like, however it is quite usable with practice. The GNX4 doesn't really sport many recording frills, so edit it in an in computer sound editor. Also, you'll need at least a good solid straight day to set all your parameters up, as the default guitar sounds probably aren't going to cut it for you.
All in all I bought the GNX4 to record song ideas, but ended up staying for the reasons many already listed on this site's reviews. It is sturdy, useful, intuitive (read the manual though)and sports a very robust set of features. I would recommend it to live performers, and people who need a device to get ideas down fast, and, surprisingly, well.
I haven't tried the drum machine too much and don't have too much hope for it. And it's a little complicated to use. It would be cool if there were more connection with a computer, so that you could link up to a computer and create drum patterns or create new sounds or do custom tones by using some nice graphical software, rather than turning knobs and watching little LEDs.
That said, the thing ROCKS! I use it all the time now. The sound is more than passable, and the ability to toggle through a nearly limitiless selection of effects is really, really cool. I have 5 or 10 favorite pre-sets and just switch over to "blues" or "jazz" or "rock" or whatever I"m in the mood for.
The recording ability is really a winner. You can easily dump the track to the same compact flash card i use in my camera. Then playback and record at the same time. You can even easily pull tracks off a computer onto compact flash and play them while reacording new tracks. Makes mixing really easy -- just record the tracks, pull out the flash card, slide into the computer and import into your favorite mixer sofware.
All-in-all, well worth the $$
Guitar effects processor. The presets are excellent and the ease of setup and the
sound quality are outstanding. The device has so many options that I have hardly
time to try out just the basic functions. It is a device is great for practicing
as well as concert gigs. The only downside was the device was shipped without
all software. The company however allowed me to download the software from its
