A new standard for effects pedal lovers seeking the ultimate control and tonal transparency. G3 and G3 Atom mark a new standard in pedalboard effects control. Built on the legacy of our award winning G2, G3 delivers the ultimate in signal path purity with possibilities never before seen in a pedalboard switcher. Hear your effects as they were designed to sound, unencumbered by compromises inherent in a standard pedalboard setup. We designed G3 from the ground up, obsessively testing and retesting every aspect of its design to ensure we delivered the most robust, fully featured, tonally transparent switching system in the world. G3 is an expression of our passion. We compromised on nothing.
WHY G3? Since the launch of G2 in 2013, we have never stopped dreaming about what would be next. The answer to that is G3. Unparalleled signal path flexibility, MIDI control and intuitive programming, G3 is the new standard in professional effects pedalboard control. With built-in Bluetooth enabling you to connect to the G3 iOS app you have software updates, system backups and song list editing at your fingertips.
We have also built the new G3 Extension Kit and Hub, so you can have your rig offstage, controlled by your tech if needed, for the ultimate pro touring rig. For all the things that G3 does, we've never forgotten the most important thing and that's what G3 doesn't do...
G3 will not load or colour your guitar tone, letting you hear your effects and amps as they were designed to sound.
KEY FEATURES -12 Passive True Bypass Effects Loops -12 Passive True Bypass Matrix effects loops which can be paired for stereo effects, meaning you can have up to 6 stereo loops, 12 mono or combinations thereof -True Stereo Delay Trails / Spillover - Stereo delay and reverb trails from any loop on any preset. Learn more from our video HERE -Pre Gain - Programmable Pre Gain on every preset which can buffer, attenuate or boost the input to your effects. Can be switched entirely out too -Switchable Outputs - 2 separate outputs. One is isolated and phase reversible so you'll have no earth hum or phase issues between your amps -Zero Confusion - Select a preset switch, choose your effects, outputs, pre/post gain, additional control switching if you want…done! No menus, no save button. See our Set-Up video HERE -Ultra High-Res TFT LCD Display - -Ultra-Bright TFT LCD screen displaying Bank, Preset Number /Name and Pre/Post Gain levels and menu system (brightness adjustable) -Up to 99 Banks of Presets - Up to 99 banks with up to 28 presets per bank. Can be configured for Preset or Stomp Box mode. That means unparalleled flexibility and control -Bluetooth - -Connect to the G3 iOS app through G3's built-in Bluetooth. Software updates, system back-ups, set-list editing all from your phone. For more information watch our APP VIDEO -Post Gain - True stereo programmable Post Gain giving complete control over the master volume output of each preset -GigRig Designed Optical Footswitches - Milled from stainless steel, our own-design OptoKick footswitch uses light instead of mechanics to do the footswitching, so there's nothing to break. We believe these are the most reliable footswitches in the world -Full MIDI In and Out - Each preset can send up to 15 separate mappable PC and CC MIDI messages as well as 2 expression pedal inputs for realtime CC message control. Learn more from our MIDI VIDEO Built-in Parallel and Wet/Dry - If Wet/Dry and parallel signals are your thing, you can do it all in G3 without the need for any external devices. Send different effects to different outputs, even phase correct your parallel signals
If you need a clean stage for your production this is a no-brainer.
