Introduction

Editing/Creating a Preset

The GNX3 was designed to make sound processing easy and intuitive. Because the GNX3 provides both Amp Modeling and Effects Processing, the editing functions are divided into two sections: the Amp/Cabinet Modeling section and the Effects section. The GeNetX™ technology contained in the GNX3 lets you go much further than mere Amp Modeling. GeNetX™ lets you create your own Amp/Cabinet HyperModel™ and store this custom creation to a User Amp/Cabinet location. When editing either the Amp/Cabinet Modeling, or the Effects section, you must start with one of the User or Factory Presets. It is not possible to start with a completely empty preset. The preset you begin with does not need to be in the location that you intend to save it. To begin creating a HyperModel™ or just edit the effects, you must select a preset as your starting point.

Amp/Cabinet Modeling

After selecting a preset, you can select the Amp Models or Cabinet Types for your preset. Amp/Cabinet Modeling applies the tone of one of several vintage or modern Amp Models and Cabinet Types to your guitar signal. The GNX3 includes accurate emulations of fifteen guitar Amp Models, four Bass Amp Models, one Acoustic Guitar Simulation, and sixteen Speaker Cabinet Types.Your choices include:

Editing Amp Models and Cabinet Types

Each GNX3 preset has a Green, Red, and Yellow (Warped) Amp Channel. The Green and Red Amp Channels include individually selectable Amp Models, Cabinet Types, Gain, EQ, and Level settings.The Speaker Cabinet’s resonant frequency can be selected. Once the Green and Red channel’s models are selected, you can toggle channels instantly using the Amp Channel Footswitch (only when Stompbox

14

Introduction

Mode is active). After models are selected for the Green and Red channels, the models can be Warped together to create a HyperModel™.

Selecting Amp/Cabinet Models

The first step to editing an Amp Model, Cabinet Type, or creating your own HyperModel™ is to select the Amp and Cabinet types for the Green and Red Amp channels in your preset. The procedure for selecting an Amp Model or Cabinet Type for the Green or Red Amp Channels is as follows:

1.Press the EXIT button to return to the top level of operation.

2.Use the Parameter 1 knob (far left) to select the Green Amp Model. The Amp Model name appears in the alpha-numericdisplay. See the Amp/Cabinet Modeling section on page 14 for a complete list of Amp Models.

3.Use the Parameter 2 knob (second from the left) to select the Green Cabinet Type. See the Amp/Cabinet Modeling section on page 14 for a complete list of Cabinet Types.

4.Use the Parameter 4 knob (second from the right) to select the Red Amp Model.

Introduction

Creating HyperModels™

Creating new, unique HyperModels™ is what GeNetX™ is all about. Once the Green and Red Amp Models and Cabinet types are selected, and the Amp Parameters and Cabinet Tuning have been adjusted, GeNetX™ technology lets you do something amazing. The characteristics of each Amp and Cabinet assigned to the Green and Red Channels can actually be combined or “Warped” to create a completely new Amp HyperModel™. The procedure for Warping the Green and Red Amps together is as follows:

1.Press the Status button until its LED lights yellow.

2.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to Warp the Green and Red Amps and Cabinets together. Rotating counterclockwise adds Green Channel characteristics, and clockwise adds Red Channel characteristics.

Saving HyperModels™ (Amp Save)

When you have finished editing the Green and Red Channels, you must save the HyperModel™ for future use. This HyperModel™ can be saved in one of 9 User HyperModel™ locations. After it has been saved, it can be used in either the Green or Red Amp Channel. The Amp Save procedure is as follows:

1.Press the AMP SAVE button. The Amp Save button begins flashing and the display readsNEWAMP. TheN ofNEWAMP is flashing indicating that you can name your HyperModel™.

2.Use the DATA WHEEL to select thealpha-numericcharacter.

3.Use the DRUMS button to move to the next character (to the right), or theMODE BUTTON to select the previous character (to the left).

4.Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the HyperModel™ name appears in the display.

5.Press the AMP SAVE button again to select one of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations. If the GNX3 has any unused HyperModel™ locations available, the display readsEMPTY U1. The U1 flashes indicating that this is the first available location for HyperModel to be stored. If all 9 HyperModel™ locations are full, the GNX3 defaults to the first HyperModel™ location and displays the name of HyperModel™ stored in the first location.

6.Use the DATA WHEEL to select a User location to save the HyperModel. If all locations have been used, the display shows the name of the HyperModel™ about to be overwritten.

7.Press the AMP SAVE button again to complete the Amp Save procedure.

Press EXIT at any time during the Amp Save procedure to abort the process.

Note: The Amp Save procedure only saves Amp/Cabinet combinations to the User HyperModel™ locations. It does not store changes or the new HyperModel™ to the selected preset. See page 16 for information on storing changes to a Preset

Editing the Effects

The GNX3 contains a comprehensive library of fully programmable, studio quality Effects. The Effects section is accessed with the Effect Select Up/Down buttons.The Matrix LEDs light one at a time to identify the selected row of effects . When you have selected the effect row, you have up to 5 Parameters that can be edited. Each effect row is divided into 6 columns of Parameters.The first column is the on/off control. Pressing the Status button at the top of the first column turns the effect group on and off. The knobs at the top of the other 5 columns control the Parameters listed directly beneath the corresponding knob. Each effect’s parameter is labeled in the Matrix. When a knob is turned, the corresponding parameter name appears in the green alpha-numericdisplay and the parameter value displays in the red numeric display.

Effects and Parameters

Effects and Parameters

The GNX3 can be thought of as several different “virtual” amplifiers, and individual, hi-techstomp boxes. With stomp boxes, the order in which they are connected can make a big difference in how good the overall sound is. Whether the stomp boxes are placed before the amp, or in the amp’s effects loop will also make a difference. The following diagram shows the signal path through the processing contained in the GNX3.

Effect Definitions

Each Effect within the GNX3 is fully programmable. Understanding how these effects alter the sound, and how each parameter alters the effect will help you achieve the sound you are looking for. The following overview outlines how each effect and parameter in the GNX3 alters the sound.

Wah-Pickup

AWah is an effect controlled by the Expression Pedal. A Wah applies a boost in gain to a narrow band of frequencies. As the Expression Pedal is rocked back and forth, the center frequency receiving the boost is swept up and down making the guitar sound as if it is saying “Wah.” The Wah is engaged and disengaged by applying pressure to the V-Switchlocated under the toe of the Expression Pedal. See page 66 for more information regarding theV-Switch.

The Pickup Simulator applies the warmth and thickness of a double coil humbucker pickup to a single coil guitar, or the unique, crisp sound of a single coil pickup to a guitar with a humbucker.This allows you to have the best of both worlds without ever changing guitars.

Wah On/Off - TheSTATUS button (or theV-Switch)turns the Wah (Wah) on and off.

Wah Type - The Parameter 1 knob selects the type of Wah.Values include: Cry Wah (CRY) is a traditional sounding Wah, Boutique Wah (BOuTIQUe) is a wide sweeping Wah with a more modern sound and Full Range Wah (fullrang)sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies.

Wah Minimum - The Parameter 2 knob is used to select the minimum point the Wah (WAH MIN) will reach in the toe up position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from0 to99.

Wah Maximum - The Parameter 3 knob is used to select the maximum point the Wah (WAH MAX) will reach in the toe down position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from0 to99.

Pickup Type/Off -TheParameter 4 knob selects the type of Pick Up to be be simulated.Values include: Pickup Simulator Off (pick off), Single Coil>Humbucker (SC>humb) gives a single coil pick up the warm tone of a humbucker , and Humbucker>Single Coil (humb>SC) gives a humbucker the unique sound of a single coil .

The Parameter 5 knob doesn’t function when the Wah-Pickupmodule is selected.

Effects and Parameters

Compressor

A compressor is used to increase sustain, and tighten up a guitar signal. A compressor sets boundaries for a signal’s strength. When a signal exceeds the set boundary, it is forced back into the set boundary. As the signal fades to a point where it no longer exceeds the boundary, the compressor expands the signal strength and increases sustain. The compression parameters are as follows:

Comp On/Off - TheSTATUS button turns the Compressor (Compress) on and off.

Attack - The Parameter 1 knob adjusts the length of time it takes for the Compressor to respond to a signal exceeding the Threshold. Values include:fast,meDIUM, andslOw.

Ratio - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the input to output ratio once the Threshold has been exceeded. For instance, a Ratio of 4 to 1 means that a signal exceeding the Threshold by 4 dB will only be allowed 1 dB of increased output. Higher settings yield a tighter, sound and increase sustain.

Lower settings allow better dynamics. Ranges include: ¡2-1 (1.2:1),¡5-1 (1.5:1),¡8-1 (1.8:1),™0-1 (2:1),™5-1 (2.5:1),£0-1 (3:1),¢0-1 (4:1),∞0-1 (5:1),•0-1 (8:1),10-1 (10:1),20-1 (20:1), andINF-1 (infinity:1).

Threshold - The Parameter 3 knob selects the Threshold (threshld). The Threshold is the level a signal is allowed to reach before the compressor begins to work. Low Threshold settings activate the compressor with weaker signals. Higher settings require a stronger signal to activate compression. Ranges from0 to99.

Gain - The Parameter 4 knob adjusts the Output Gain (Gain) from the Compressor. This parameter is used to balance the level of the Compressor to reach unity gain. Other effects can clip if the

Compressor Gain too high. Ranges from 0 to20 (dB).

The Parameter 5 knob doesn’t function when the Compressor is selected.

Whammy/IPS/Talker

This module includes four types of pitch altering effects:Whammy™, IPS, Detune, and Pitch Shift, and Digitech’s exlcusive Talker™ effect. The Status button turns the Whammy/IPS/Talker (Wham/IPS) module on and off. The Parameter 1 knob elects whether the module is a Whammy™(WHAMMY), Intelligent Pitch Shifter (IPS), Detuner (DETUNE), Pitch Shifter (PITCH), or Talker (Talker 1-5)Parameters 1, 2, and 3 in the Matrix have different functions depending upon which effect is selected in this module.

Whammy™ is an effect that uses an Expression Pedal to bend the pitch of the incoming signal, or add a bendable harmony with the original signal. As the Pedal is moved, the note bends either up or down. When Whammy™ is selected, it is automatically placed before the Amp Modeling as shown in the block diagram (see page 19).The Whammy™ effect must be linked to the Expression Pedal in order to function. See page 61 for more information on linking the Expression Pedal.

Parameter 1 (Whammy™) - The Parameter 2 knob selects the interval and direction of the pitch bend. Choices are as follows:

Whammy (no Dry Signal)

Effects and Parameters

Talker™

The Talker™ is an effect designed exclusively by DigiTech, that lets your instrument speak. The Talker™ requires a microphone be connected to the Mic Input on the rear panel of the GNX3. As you speak into the microphone, your instrument mimics what you say. The Talker™ effect is output only at the 1/4” left and right outputs. When the Talker™ is bypassed, the mic signal is passed from the XLR mic input to the XLR mic output unaffected. There are five Talker™ types.

Type - The Parameter 4 knob is used to select the 5 Talker™ types. Talker types range fromtalker 1 (deep tonal characteristics), totalker 5 (bright tonal characteristics).

Sensitivity - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the microphone sensitivity. The input level from your microphone must be loud enough for the Talker™ to work properly. If the microphone input is too weak, the Talker™ will have trouble tracking.

Tutorial

Suppose you wanted to create your own HyperModel™ that incorporates the sweet tones of a vintage Tweed using an American 2x12 cabinet, and the ripping distortion of a Rectified Amp with a British 4x12 cabinet. Let’s also suppose that you want to be able to toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and this new HyperModel™ with a preset that gives your single coil pickup a humbucker sound, uses no Compression, has a Noise Gate that opens quickly, a subtle Chorus effect, no Delay, and a little bit of a Hall reverb.The following steps guide you through the process of creating just that preset in the GNX3.

Select a Preset

The first step to create a preset is to select your starting point. You can start with any preset, but for this example let’s start with Preset 40. Use the Footswitches or the Data Wheel to select Preset 40.

Create a HyperModel™

For this example, we are going to use a vintage Tweed amp with an American 2x12 Cabinet, and warp it with a Rectified Amp using a British 4x12 cabinet.

1. Select Preset 40. The GNX3 is ready to select the Amp Models (indicated by the Status button’s yellow LED).

Select the Green Channel Amp and Cabinet

The LEDs next to the Parameter 1 and Parameter 2 knobs are green indicating you can select the Amp and Cabinet types for the Green Channel. To assign the vintage Tweed amp to the Green Channel, do the following:

1.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the display reads TWEED (Tweed).

2.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob until the display reads AMer2X12 (American 2x12).

Select the Red Channel Amp and Cabinet

The LEDs next to the Parameter 4 and Parameter 5 knobs are red indicating you can select the Amp and Cabinet types for the Red Channel.To assign the Rectified amp to the Red Channel, do the following:

1.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display reads rectfied (Rectified).

2.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob until the display reads BRit4X12 (British 4x12).

30

Tutorial

Adjust the Green Channel Parameters

The Tweed amp that we selected for our Green Channel assignment uses the factory default settings for the Gain, EQ, and Level Parameters.Therefore, you may want to change the settings. To access the Green Channel Parameters, do the following:

1.Press the STATUS button. All horizontal LEDs light green indicating that all 5 knobs will adjust the Green Channel Parameters.

2.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Tweed Gain.

3.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the Tweed Bass.

4.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Tweed Mids.

5.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to adjust the Tweed Treble.

6.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Tweed Level.

Adjust the Red Channel Parameters

Like the Tweed amp in the Green Channel, the Rectified amp in the Red Channel may need to be adjusted to suit your personal taste. To access the Red Channel Parameters, do the following:

1.Press the STATUS button. All horizontal LEDs light red indicating that all 5 knobs will adjust the Red Channel Parameters.

2.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Rectified Gain.

3.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the Rectified Bass.

4.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Rectified Mids.

5.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to adjust the Rectified Treble.

6.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Rectified Level.

Tune the Cabinets

As an option, you may also want to adjust the resonance for the American 2x12 and the British 4x12 Cabinets. To access the Cabinet tuning for both Red and Green Channels, do the following:

1. Press and hold the STATUS button until the display readsCAB TUNe (Cabinet Tuning).

2.Release the STATUS button and rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the tuning for the Green Cabinet (gtune º0).

3.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the tuning for the Red Cabinet (rtune º0).

4.Once the tuning of both Cabinets has been adjusted, press the EXIT button.

Warp the Green and Red Amps Together

When the Amps and Cabinets in our Green and Red Amps are dialed in to suit your taste, we can Warp their characteristics together to create a new HyperModel™. To warp the green and red amps do the following:

1.Press the STATUS button until its LED turns yellow.

2.Rotate the Parameter 3 (Warp) knob to blend the Amps and Cabinets in our Green and Red Channels.

Save the HyperModel™

Now that we have designed our own Amp/Cabinet HyperModel™, we need to save it to one of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations. This allows us to use it in presets. To save the HyperModel, do the following:

1.Press the AMP SAVE button until the display readsNEW AMP and the first letter (N) is flashing. For this example, let’s name the HyperModel™ “Rectweed” (Rectified Tweed).

2.Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select R as the first letter.

3.Press the RHYTHM button to select the next character in the display. Continue using the Data Wheel and Rhythm button until the display readsRECTWeeD.

32

Tutorial

4.When the display reads RECTWeeD, press theAMP SAVE button again. Now we need to choose one of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations.Thealpha-numericdisplay should readEMPTY (Empty) and the red numeric display should readU1 if this is the first HyperModel™ stored to your GNX3.

5.Press the AMP SAVE button again to save to this Amp location.The display briefly readsAMP SaVD (Amp Saved) and then returns to the name of the selected preset.

Select Models for the Preset’s Channels

In the previous steps, we selected a Tweed amp model for the Green Channel and a Rectified amp model for the Red Channel. Then we Warped the two together to create our HyperModel™. This HyperModel™ is saved as an amp type that we named Rectweed, but it is not currently part of our preset. In this example preset, we need to be able to toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and our new HyperModel™. To do this we need to select the Acoustic model for the Green Channel and Rectweed for the Red Channel of our preset, as follows:

1.The LED next to the STATUS button should be yellow. If it is not, pressEXIT.

2.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the display reads ACOUSTic.This is the Green Channel Model for the preset.

3.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display reads RECTWeeD (our new HyperModel™). This is the Red Channel Model for the preset. This lets us toggle between these two sounds using the Amp Footswitch (when Stompbox Mode is active).

Edit the Preset

The next step to creating our example preset involves the editing the preset. To edit the preset, do the following:

1.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button. The Matrix LED in theWah-Pickuprow lights. The display briefly readsEDIT and then cycles between the status of the Wah and Pickup Simulator effects.

2.If the red display reads WAH On, press theSTATUS button once to turn the Wah off (since our example does not use a Wah).

33

Tutorial

Select the Pickup Type

In our example preset we use a single coil pickup, but want it to sound like a double coil humbucker. With the Wah-PickupLED lit, rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display readsSC>Humb. This makes a single coil sound like a Humbucker.

Turn the Compressor Off

We don’t use compression in our preset so, we need to turn the compressor off. To turn the compressor off, do the following:

1.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button. The Compression LED lights and the display shows the current status of the Compressor.

2.If the Compressor is on, press the STATUS button until the red display reads off (Of).

Turn the Whammy™/IPS/Talker™ Off

We don’t want Whammy™, IPS, or Talker™ effects in this preset. To turn these effects off, do the following:

1.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button, and the Whammy/IPS/Talker™ LED is lit.

2.If the display indicates that either one of these effects is active, press the STATUS button until the display reads off (Of).

Turn the Stompbox Modeling Off

To turn the Stompbox Modeling off for this preset, do the following:

1.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button until the Stompbox LED is lit.

2.If the display indicates that it is active, press the STATUS button until the display reads off (Of).

Adjust the EQ

The EQ for both the Acoustic Model (Green Channel) and the Rectweed HyperModel™ ( Red

Channel) can be adjusted individually. To adjust the EQ, do the following:

1.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button until the Equalizer LED lights. The GNX3 defaults to the Green Channel EQ adjustments. Therefore, the display briefly readsEQ green .

2.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Red Channels Bass enhancement.

3.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the center frequency for the Mid-range.

4.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Mid-rangeenhancement.

5.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to select the center frequency for the Treble.

6.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Treble enhancement.

7.Press the AMP Footswitch to select the Red Channel’s EQ adjustments.The display briefly readsEQ red and the same knobs adjust the same EQ Parameters for the Green Channel.

Adjust the Noise Gate

For our example, we want our Noise Gate to open quickly with a relatively weak signal. This type of gate uses the Silencer™ with a low threshold and short attack time. To create this type of Noise Gate, do the following:

1.Press the AMP FOOTSWITCH to select the Red Amp Channel.

2.Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button and the Noise Gate’s LED lights.

3.If the display reads off (Of), press theSTATUS button until the display reads on (On).

5.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to set the Reverb Decay to 15.

6.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to set the Reverb Damping to 40.

7.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to set the Reverb Level to 30.

Store the Preset

The last step, is to store our changes to a User Preset. If we changed presets or turned the GNX3 off without storing these settings, it would forget what we had done and revert back to the original preset. To store the preset, do the following:

1.Press STORE. The first letter in the display begins to flash. Since this is an example preset, let’s name the presetexamplE.

2.Rotate the DATA WHEEL until the flashing character in the display is anE.

3.Press the RHYTHM button once and the second character begins to flash.

4.Rotate the DATA WHEEL again until the flashing character is anX. Continue using the Rhythm

button to select the character location and the Data Wheel to change the characters.

5.Once the Display reads exampLE, pressSTORE again.The numbers in the red numeric display are flashing.

6.Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select 48 as the destination.

7.Press STORE once more to save the preset.

Congratulations! You have successfully created a Preset.

Recorder

Recorder

The GNX3 is equipped with an 8-trackdigital recorder. The recorder interface features standard recording transport buttons,Track buttons, Drums button, Level/Pan button, Setup button, and Remain (time remaining) button. Song and Time displays help you keep track of what song or loop you are working with and how much recording time has elapsed or remains. The recorder functions are also mapped to the GNX3’s footswitches allowinghands-freefunctionality to the recorder.

Recorder Panel

The recorder panel is divided into 7 basic sections:

1.DISPLAY – There are 2 different displays on the GNX3’s recorder panel

SONG – A Song is a group of recorded tracks that are combined to create songs. This display shows the selected Song or Loop for recording and playback.

TIME – This display shows elapsed time of recorded material of the current Song when the recorder is playing back tracks. When theREMAIN button is on, it also displays the amount of recording time left in memory when the recorder is stopped.

2.TRANSPORT BUTTONS – The 6 transport buttons just below the displays are used for beginning the

record, playback, and search functions of recorded material. They include Stop, Record, Play, Rewind, Fast Forward, and Undo.

3. TRACKS – A Track is an individual memory location in a song that you record audio to. The GNX3 has eight individual tracks that can be recorded to.

4. DRUMS – Records drum audio tracks or syncs the Drums playback to tracks using the GNX3’sbuilt-indrum machine.

5.LEVEL/PAN – Accesses the playback level and pan controls for each track.

6.SETUP – Accesses setup options for each song including Input Select, Stereo Enable, Click Track,Tempo,

Pre-Roll,Song Repeat and more.

7. REMAIN – When Remain is turned on, theTIME display shows the remaining recording time available in track minutes when the recorder is stopped. When the recorder is playing back tracks, it shows the amount of time remaining in the current song.

38

Recorder

Recorder Setup

Before you begin recording your first song, you will want to become acquainted with the recorder Setup functions. Setup functions include: Record Input, Stereo Record, Click Track,Tempo, Pre-Roll,Song Repeat, Quantize, Record Quality,Auto Stop, Card>PC, and Memory Card Format . These functions dictate how the recorder works for each song. Each song can have these functions setup in different ways so that you can customize how the recorder works depending on your needs.

Record Input

The GNX3’s recorder has several input routing configurations that are used for getting your guitar, voice, or external music into the recorder. Each of these is specifically designed for a specific recording purpose and is outlined below with application tips.

Note: The guitar input is always active regardless of the selected input configuration with the exception of Re-Amp.

GUITAR – Select this input when only guitar tracks are being recorded. The Mic and CD inputs are disabled when this input configuration is selected.

G+CD In – Select this input for recording a source using theJam-a-long/CDinput. All stereo sources are summed to mono using this input.

G>1 M>2 – This input records the guitar on one track and the mic input on another. This input records mono guitar on the first track, and the mic input on the second track when both tracks are armed before recording begins. This input is great for guitarist/singers who like to sing as they play. This input can also be used for recording stereo signals into the GNX3’s recorder. By properly setting the Mic Level and using a 1/4” to XLR impedance (DI) box, you can run one side of the stereo signal into the Guitar input and the other side through the XLR Mic input. These two signals are recorded on separate tracks, preserving the left/right stereo image. Once the tracks are recorded, you have to pan each of the tracks left and right to hear them in stereo.

G+MICDDRY – Select this input when you want to record a dry, unprocessed vocal or acoustic instrument into the GNX3’s recorder. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the same track(s) armed for recording.

G+MICREV – This input routes the mic input through the reverb of the GNX3’s current preset. You can modify reverb settings by editing the reverb parameters of the preset (see section Editing a Preset). If the reverb is off in the current preset, the effect is not heard. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the same track(s) armed for recording.

G+MICMOD – Select this input to route the mic input through the Chorus/Mod, Delay, and Reverb modules of the GNX3’s current preset. You can modify the chorus/mod, delay, and reverb settings by editing these parameters within the current preset (see section Editing a Preset). If these effects are turned off in the current preset, the effects are not heard. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the same track(s) armed for recording.

G+MIC FX – Select this input to route the mic input through the all of the effects, including amp modeling, of the GNX3’s current preset. You can modify the effect and amp modeling settings by editing the parameters of the preset (see section Editing a Preset). Both guitar and mic are recorded on the same track(s) armed for recording.

39

Recorder

GTR DRY – Select this input to route a dry, unprocessed guitar signal direct from the input to the recorder while processed signal is heard at the GNX3’s outputs. This input is great for laying down a dry guitar track that can be replayed through different amp models and presets using the Reamp input . You can still monitor the guitar signal through all of the GNX3’s effects processing while recording.

GTR AMP – Select this input to tap the guitar signal right after the Noise Gate, and send it to the recorder, while a processed signal is heard at the GNX3’s outputs. This mode is great for laying down a dry guitar amp track without modulation, delay, or reverb effects but still monitoring these effects out the GNX3’s outputs while recording.

REAMP 1-8 – Select one of these inputs to route the selected track back through the current GNX3’s preset. This is great for guitar tracks that were recorded usingGTR DRY orGTR AMP because you can experiment by playing these tracks back through different amp models, effects, or entirely new presets. This is exactly how professional recording engineers mix down guitar tracks. To select the input configuration for recording, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the recorder stopped.

2.Press the SETUP button once. The GNX3’s main display readsrecinput. The display flashes the selected input configuration. Default from the factory is guitar.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to select one of the 10 different input configurations you want to use for recording.

4.When finished, press EXIT.

NOTE: When the STOP button is pressed after using the reamp input configuration for recording, the input configuration will automatically be reset toguitar.

Stereo Record

The recorder can be setup to automatically arm pairs of tracks for recording in stereo. When Stereo Record enabled, each time you press the RECORD button or footswitch, the recorder will automatically arm a pair of tracks to record to. Each track is automatically panned hard left and hard right respectively to maintain a stereo image. Track 1 is paired with track 2, track 3 is paired with track 4, and so on. To use Stereo Record, follow these steps:

NOTE: Although the Tempo of a song can be changed after tracks have been recorded, it is not advised that you do so because previously recorded tracks will not be synchronized with tracks recorded after the change. The Recorder Tempo also controls the Drum Machine tempo when recording or playing a virtual Drum track.

Pre-Roll

Pre-Rollis an amount of time you can have the recorder count off before actually beginning to recorder. Use Click Track duringPre-Rollso that you can then get a feel for the tempo of the track or song you are about to record.Pre-Rollcan also be used as a cue, indicating when the very beginning of the song starts. The GNX3’sPre-Rollhas 3 settings, 4, 8, or 16 counts. To setup thePre-Rollfunction, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the recorder stopped.

Card>>PC - Preparing a Card for the Computer

The GNX3’s recorder uses a proprietary format when recording audio to an external memory card. In order to access tracks created using the GNX3’s recorder on a computer, it is necessary to save these files in a format that can be read by an external card reader connected to a PC. Here are the steps for preparing the card for this purpose:

1.Once recording is complete, press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display readsCARD>>PC. This is the card preparation menu. The RECORD button will begin flashing at this time.

2.To begin the preparation procedure, press the RECORD button. The GNX3’s main display reads

BUSY as the card is being checked. The TIME display on the recorder panel will begin counting backwards from 100 indicating the procedure’s progress. The GNX3’s buttons and footswitches are disabled during this procedure and the outputs will be muted.

3.When the procedure is complete, the TIME display reads 0. The GNX3’s main display then reads PC READY followed byREMOVE.

The card should be removed and inserted into a card reader connected to the PC and the GNX3’s recorder data is accessible.

WARNING: If any recorded material or Setup utilities are added, deleted, or modified on the external memory card, the CARD>>PC procedure must be performed before removing the card from the GNX3 and inserting it into an external card reader. If this procedure is not performed, recorded data may be lost.

Erase

To quickly erase all recorded data from either internal or external memory, the GNX3’s setup menu provides an erase function. If a memory card is not present in the memory card slot, the erase function erases the GNX3’s internal recording memory. If a card is present, the external memory card is only erased. To erase either internal or external memory, follow these steps:

1.Press the SETUP button until the display readserase?. The recorder’s RECORD button begins flashing prompting the user to press it to begin erasing.

2.Press the RECORD button. The display readsSURE?, prompting the user that the next press will begin the memory erase procedure. To abort formatting, pressEXIT.

NOTE: Once you have recorded onto an external card, you must run the Card>>PC utility explained in the Recorder Setup section on page 45 if you plan to use the card with an external card reader connected to a computer. Failure to do so can result in recorded material being lost

Memory Card/Computer File Format

Once the card has been properly prepared (Preparing Card for Computer) for the computer using the card preparation routine in the GNX3’s recorder setup menu, you can now use a computer’s memory card reader to access these files. These files can be copied between the memory card and your computer using standard drag and drop routines you are familiar with. When plugging a card into a card reader, you can open it up on your computer screen and see each of the song file folders. The audio track files are found inside each of the song folders.

The GNX3’s uses a specific song and track file naming convention that needs to be maintained when exchanging files with a computer. When a card is inserted into a card reader, the songs appear as folders named SONG01, SONG02, etc… The number of songs can change depending on how many songs or loops are saved on the memory card. Inside each of the song folders are the separate audio tracks which will be named TRAK01.wav,TRAK02.wav, up to TRAK08.wav. It is important that each song’s name starts with SONGXX (XX = song number) with no spaces, and each audio track is named TRAK01-TRAK08with a .wav extension in order for the GNX3 to recognize these files. You can rename tracks and songs while viewing them in the computer with some restrictions. Here are some naming formats that are acceptable.

The following names are acceptable for song folders:

46

Recorder

Song01_rock song01 rock SONG01 rock Song01rock

The following names are not acceptable for song folders:

Song_01

Song 01

Song 1

The following names are acceptable for individual audio track files: Trak01_solo.wav

trak03lead.wav trak04 rhythm.wav TRAK05 bass.wav

The following names are not acceptable for audio track files: TRAK_01

Track 01 track 1

It is possible to have duplicate songs or tracks when renaming them in the computer. For instance, song01_rock and song01_jazz are really the same name to the GNX3 as are trak01_solo.wav and trak01_solo2.wav. The GNX3 only looks at the first six characters to identify the song and track information. The remainder of the name is not recognized but is provided for the purpose of identifying song and track names in your file system. There can only be a maximum of 99 songs on a memory card, and a maximum number of 8 tracks in each song.

47

Recorder

Recording Time

The GNX3 is equipped with 16Meg of on-boardrecording memory. This gives you six total track minutes available for recording in Normal Record Quality (three minutes in CD Record Quality and 12 minutes in Economy Record Quality). Therefore, you can record one track for six minutes, two tracks for 3 minutes, and so forth using Normal Quality . The number of songs that can be in memory is dependent on the total amount of record time. For example, with an optional 128M Smart Media® card, the GNX3 has a total of 48 Normal quality track minutes available. This would be the equivalent of two – 3 minute8-tracksongs or four

– 3 minute 4-tracksongs.

Using the GNX3’s Recorder Panel for Recording

Recording a Track

When the GNX3 is first powered up, the recorder is immediately ready to use. The Song display reads 1, indicating the first song is selected to record. To begin recording a track, follow these steps:

1.Press the RECORD button. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed for recording, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time.

2.Once recording is complete, press the STOP button. This stops the recording process. The display readssaving as the track is being saved to memory. The TIME display shows the elapsed time used, and the TRACK 1 button automatically lights green indicating it is enabled for playback.

NOTE: Pressing the RECORD button when a track is not armed for recording will force the GNX3’s recorder to arm and begin recording on the next empty track of a song (next pair of tracks when Stereo Record is enabled). You may arm any track(s) for recording prior to pressing RECORD.

48

Recorder

Using the UNDO Button to Erase a Track

Every track you record may not be a take you want to keep. The GNX3’s recorder features an UNDO button, that erases the contents of a track. You can Undo a track even while recording is in progress, thus eliminating having to stop and start all the recording procedures again.

WARNING: Deleting a track is permanent and once it is deleted it cannot be retrieved. Please use the UNDO button with caution.

The following steps explain how Undo works.

Using Undo While the Recorder is Stopped

If you stopped the recorder and decided you were unhappy with the last take, you can Undo (erase) the track information.To undo the last track you recorded, follow these steps:

1.Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display readsdel trkx, indicating the last recorded track will be deleted. If you want to delete a different track, press the track button you want to delete.

2.Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to delete the track. If the UNDO button is not pressed a second time within 3 seconds of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request and returns to its normal stopped state.

Using Undo While Recording is in Progress

You can Undo a track while recording is in progress. This eliminates having to stop the recorder, rewinding, and having to start over. To undo the track you are currently recording on, follow these steps:

1.Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display readsrerecord.

2.Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to startre-recording.The display readsundodone and the recorder returns to the beginning of the song and resumes recording on the same track. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request and recording continues unaffected.

If you don’t want to have the recorder automatically start re-recordingwhen using UNDO, press theSTOP button to stop recording before using the UNDO function.

49

Recorder

Using Undo While Playback is in Progress

You can also Undo a track while playback is in progress. This essentially deletes the track recorded to last. To undo the track while playback is in progress, follow these steps:

1.Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display readsdel trkx. If you want to delete a different track, press the track button you want deleted.

2.Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to delete the track. The recorder deletes this track and continues the song playback. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request and playback continues unaffected.

Playing Back a Recorded Track

After a track is recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song, press PLAY. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the very beginning. If you want to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other than the end of the song, follow these steps:

1 00 00

1.Begin with the Recorder stopped.

2.Press the REWIND button once to move to the beginning of the song. Press and hold the rewind or fast forward buttons to quickly move back and forth through the track until it is released.

3.Press the PLAY button. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (the track button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.

Setting Track Playback Levels and Panning

After a track has been recorded, you can set the pan and playback level for each track. This is done using the LEVEL / PAN button. This feature is most useful if done while the recording is playing back so you can hear the changes as they are being made. To set level and pan controls for each track, follow these steps:

Setting each track’s playback level:

1.Press the REWIND button once to return the song to the beginning.

2.Place any track(s) you want to playback by pressing their TRACK buttons until they are lit green.

50

Recorder

3.Press the PLAY button. Playback of the tracks begins.

4.To adjust the playback level of the tracks, press the LEVEL / PAN button once. It lights green.

5.Press any track button that is playing back. It flashes green. The main display reads tkx levl 50 (X = track number).

6.Turn the DATA WHEEL to adjust this track’s playback level.

7.Select other tracks and adjust their playback level by repeating steps 5 and 6.

8.Press the LEVEL / PAN button twice to exit.

Setting each track’s pan:

1. Press the LEVEL / PAN button twice. It lights green and the main display readstkx cntr 0 (X=track number).

2.Turn the DATA WHEEL to the left to pan the track to the left in the stereo field (tkx left). Turn theDATA WHEEL to the right to pan the track to the right (tkx rght).

3.Select other tracks and adjust their pan position by pressing the track button and repeating step 2.

4.Press the LEVEL / PAN button again to exit.

Recording Multiple Tracks

After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks that play along with it. Previously recorded track(s) should already be in play mode and are ready for monitoring while you record your new track. To record a new track with a previously recorded track, follow these steps:

1.Press the RECORD button. The next available track for recording automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track from the beginning of the song. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time. If Autostop is turned on, the recorder will automatically stop when the longest track playing back is finished. If Autostop is turned off, go to step 2.

2.When recording is complete, press the STOP button.

Changing Track Status

Each recorded track can be in 1 of 4 states; playback, record, merge, or off. Tracks with recorded material can be turned on for playback (TRACK button is lit green), armed for recording (TRACK button is flashing red), armed for merging other recorded tracks to it (TRACK button is flashing yellow) or turned off (button is not lit). If a track does not have material recorded on it, it can only be enabled for recording or turned off. To change the status of a track, do the following:

51

Recorder

1. Press any TRACK button repeatedly until it lights green, flashes red, or flashes yellow.

If the button lights green, there is recorded material present. If the RECORD or PLAY button is pressed the material is played back. If the button light flashes red, and the RECORD button is pressed (the button light is a solid red) it is recorded on. If the light flashes yellow, it merges armed tracks for playback, including recorded material already present on this track.

NOTE: If a TRACK is placed in record and the PLAY button is pressed, it will not be recorded on but the track button will remain flashing red. All tracks with material recorded on them playback their material, even if their button is flashing red. If the RECORD button is then pressed during playback, tracks armed for recording are recorded on.

Punching In / Punching Out

There may be times you want to replace a track section in the middle of a song. Rather than recording on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you can “punch in” the phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track. To punch in record, follow these steps:

1.Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is flashing red).

2.Press the PLAY button. All tracks that are armed for playback begin playing, and the TRACK button armed for recording continues flashing red.

3.When you reach the point in the playback that you want the recording to begin, press the RECORD button. The TRACK button armed for recording lights red and recording begins on this track at this point.

4.When you are finished recording, press the RECORD button again to disable the track armed for recording and continue listening to the playback.

Bouncing/Merging Tracks

Once you have recorded several tracks, you may want to combine them onto a single track or pair of tracks to free up recording memory. This is done using the recorder’s Merge function. Merging is essentially the same as bouncing tracks as you would on old analog 4 and 8-tracktape recorders, only without the signal degradation. You can merge playback tracks with recorded tracks and retain the recorded material on the tracks you are merging to. This means you don’t need empty tracks to merge to if all tracks have recorded material on them.

Merging tracks is irreversible to the tracks that are merged to. It is wise to make sure your individual track levels and pans are set prior to merging to tracks with recorded material present, as once tracks are merged, the individual track information cannot be adjusted. To merge recorded tracks, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the recorder stopped.

2.Arm the track(s) you want to merge for playback (TRACK buttons lit flashing green).

3..Press the TRACK button you want to merge to until it begins flashing yellow. Only a maximum of two tracks at a time can be selected to merge to.

4..Press the RECORD button. The recorder begins merging the audio from the tracks armed for playback onto the tracks armed for merge. Once merging has begun, it cannot be stopped until playback through the entire song is completed.

Recorder

Drums Track

The GNX3’s built-indrum machine is not only a great practice tool but can actually be used for song creation as well. Using the Drums button located in the recorder panel, you can either sync the drum machine with your other recorded audio tracks, or record the drum machine patterns to any of the recorder’s tracks.

Syncing Drums to Songs

The GNX3’s drum machine can by synced to recorded tracks when you first begin recording a song, essentially creating a ‘virtual’ drum track that plays back with your recorded tracks. When the Drums button is armed for playback (button is lit green), the GNX3 begins playing the drum machine using the pattern you have selected when either the RECORD or PLAY button is pressed. The drums play at the tempo designated in the recorder Setup utility for the current song. Rather than using a track to record drums on, the recorder starts the Drum machine and it plays for the length of the song.

To sync the GNX3’s drum machine to the current song, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the Recorder stopped.

2.Press the DRUMS button in the upper right control panel area on the GNX3. This enables the Drums playback.

3.Press the PATTERN button.

4.Use the DATA WHEEL to select the pattern you want to record.

5.Press the DRUMS button again to stop the drums.

6.Press the DRUMS track button on the recorder panel once. It lights green.

7..Press the PLAY button. The drum machine begins playing in sync from the beginning of the song at the tempo designated in the Setup utility.

8.When finished, press the STOP button.

The recorder did not actually record an audio track of the drums, it just recorded an event that selects the tempo for the current song. This file does not appear as a separate .wav file in the songs folder on the Smart Media card when it is viewed using a computer but is part of the setup file that accompanies each song.

Recording Drum Machine Tracks

You may also want to record the GNX3’s drum machine as an actual audio track. Recording the drums lets you process the drums track through any of the GNX3’s effects via the Re-ampinput mode. To record the GNX3’s drum machine as an audio track, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the Recorder stopped.

2.Press the DRUMS button in the upper right control panel area on the GNX3. This enables the Drums playback.

3.Press the PATTERN button.

4.Use the DATA WHEEL to select the pattern, tempo, and level you want to record.

5.Press the DRUMS button again to stop the drums.

4.Press the DRUMS track button on the recorder panel until it lights flashing red.

5.Press the RECORD button. The next available track for recording arms for recording. The drum machine begins playing at the same time, and is recorded on the armed track.

6.When finished, press the STOP button.

53

Recorder

Recording the Mic Input

The GNX3 is equipped with a mic input that is used for recording vocals or acoustic instruments. In order to get the best level recorded, it is necessary to setup the mic input gain properly. To setup the input gain for the mic, follow these steps:

1.Connect a microphone to the MIC INPUT on the rear panel.

2.Begin singing or playing the instrument into the mic.

3.Turn the MIC LEVEL control on the rear panel clockwise for more gain andcounter-clockwisefor less gain until the CLIP LED next to the GNX3’s main display only flashes occasionally. If it is flashing often or solid red, turn down the gain. If the CLIP LED doesn’t flash, turn up the gain until it does flash occasionally.

Once the mic input gain is set properly, you need to select one of the mic input configurations in the recorder Setup utility. To select a mic input configuration, follow these steps:

1.Press the SETUP button once on the recorder panel. The display readsrecinput and then begins flashing the selected input configuration.

2.Use the DATA WHEEL to select one of the mic input configurations. See page 39 for the GNX3’s recorder input configurations and their descriptions.

3.When finished, press EXIT.

Now you can begin recording the mic input like any other track using the steps outlined in the Recording a Track section.

Recorder Output Configuration

The GNX3’s digital and analog outputs can be configured in a number ways to best utilize the recorder and guitar processor both independently and simultaneously. If you plan on using the guitar processing along with playback of the recorder, there are several options for routing the guitar processor and the recorder signals independently of each other. This works well when either running directly into a mixer or using a guitar amp and mixer together. To set the Output configuration, follow these steps.

1.Press the UTILITY button.

2.Press the MODE orDRUMS button until the display readsanlg out. The default configuration from the factory isStereo.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to select mono, stereo, g>l r>r, mono gtr, or ster gtr. Stereoand

Mono output configurations have both recorder and guitar processor mixed together at both the analog and digital outputs whileg>l r>r configures the left and right analog outputs as a mono guitar processor out and a mono recorder out respectively.Mono gtr andster gtr configurations send guitar processor signal only out the GNX3’s analog outputs.

The S/PDIF digital output can also be configured in a variety of ways that best suit your recording or performance situation. To setup the S/PDIF options, follow these steps:

1.Press the UTILITY button.

2.Press either the MODE orDRUMS button until the display readsDIGI OUT. The default configuration from the factory isGTR+REC. This configuration sends both guitar processor and recorder output to the S/PDIF output.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to selectRECORDER if only the recorder output is what you want sent to the

54

Recorder

S/PDIF output. Configurations 2 and 3 are for the Dry Track setup (see the section on Digital Output setup for more on Dry Track).

4. Press the EXIT button.

Working with Songs and Loops

A Song and a Loop are a group of recorded tracks. The GNX3’s recorder has 99 songs available to record to as recording memory allows. With an optional 128M Smart Media™ card, for example the GNX3 has a total of 48 Normal quality track minutes available. This would be the equivalent of four 3-minute,4-tracksongs, leaving no memory available for songs5-99.Loops, however, are generally shorter in length so more loops could be saved than songs in the same amount of memory.

Selecting Songs and Loops

Selecting songs on the GNX3’s recorder is easy. To select songs, follow these steps:

1.Press the STOP button (if the recorder isn’t already stopped).

2.Use the F FWD orREWIND buttons to select the next or previous song. The GNX3’s main display showsreading and the number in the SONG display changes as the new song is selected. The TIME display shows the selected song’s length.

NOTE: You can also use the DOWN and UP footswitches to select songs when Recorder mode is active.

Using the GNX3’s Footswitches for Recording

The GNX3’s footswitches can perform different functions depending on what state they are in: Bank Mode, Stompbox Mode, Learn-a-lick,and Recorder Mode. When Recorder mode is selected, the UP/DOWN footswitches are used to select next and previous Songs. The 5 numbered footswitches are used for Rewind, Undo, Stop, Record, and Play. To select the Recorder mode for using the footswitches to record, press the 4 and 5 footswitches simultaneously until the DOWN/UP footswitches are lit red. This turns your GNX3’s pedalboard into ahands-freeremote control for the recorder.

Recording a Track

To begin recording a track using the footswitches, follow these steps:

1.Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on the track. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time.

2.Once recording is completed, press the STOP footswitch. This stops the recording process, and the track is saved. The TIME display shows the elapsed time used and the TRACK 1 button is lit green indicating it is now enabled for playback.

Playing Back a Recorded Track

After a track is recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song, press PLAY. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the very beginning. If you want to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other than the end of the song, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the Recorder stopped.

2.Press the REWIND footswitch. Press and hold this button to slowly move back through the track until it is released.

3.Press the PLAY footswitch. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (the track button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.

Recording Multiple Tracks

After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks that play along with it. To create a monitoring source while recording new tracks, play the previously recorded track(s). To record a new track with a previously recorded track, follow these steps:

1.Press the RECORD footswitch. The next available track for recording automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track from the beginning of the song. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time. If Autostop is turned on, the recorder will automatically stop when the longest track playing back is finished. If Autostop is turned off, go to step 2.

2.When recording is complete, press the STOP footswitch.

Punching In / Punching Out

There may be times you want to replace a track section in the middle of a song. Rather than recording on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you can “punch in” the phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track. To punch in record, follow these steps:

1.Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is lit flashing red).

4.When you are finished recording, press the PLAY footswitch to continue listening to playback and disable the track armed for recording, or press theSTOP footswitch to stop.

56

Recorder

Using the GNX3’s JamMan Delay Looper

The GNX3’s recorder also doubles as a JamMan™ Delay Looper. The JamMan is used to create a recording loop that you can playback with. The JamMan functions are accessed using the GNX3’s footswitches while they are in Recorder mode. The only difference between regular multi-trackrecording and looping is the way you use the footswitches after recording your first track.

When recording multiple tracks for a song, you would normally record your first track, stop, rewind, and then set up for recording your overdub track. The GNX3’s footswitches provide hands-offoperation for these functions. But when you want to create loops on the fly that you can layer, you want the transition from the first take to the second and so on to be seamless.

To use the JamMan feature of the GNX3 you must first have the footswitches in Recorder mode. To do this, press the 4 and 5 footswitches simultaneously until the DOWN/UP footswitches are lit red. If you have songs already in memory, you must select a new Song to record your loop to. To select a new song, press the UP footswitch. A new song is defined as a song that has no previously recorded material present on any of its tracks.

You are now ready to begin recording a loop.

Recording a Loop

Recording a loop is no different than doing multi-trackrecordings. Here are the steps for creating a loop:

1.Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time.

2.Just as you reach the end of your take, press the PLAY footswitch. This sets the loop length and places TRACK 1 into playback. You can listen to what you just recorded, and the TRACK 2 button is flashing red indicating it is now armed and ready to begin recording on.

NOTE: If the RECORD footswitch is pressed instead of the PLAY footswitch after recording the first pass, recording is stopped and the loop’s length is set. The TRACK 1 button is armed for record (flashing red), and you hear the playback of track 1. If you decide you want to add material to track 1 rather than record on a new track, press the RECORD footswitch record on this track again. The new material is added to existing recorded material. Until the PLAY footswitch is pressed, only track 1 is available to record on.

Recording Layered Overdubs to your Loop

Adding overdubbed layers to your first loop is easy. Since TRACK 2 is already armed for recording, press the RECORD footswitch when you are ready to begin recording your overdub. To add overdubs to the current loop, follow these steps:

1.Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 2 button lights solid red and begins recording on this track.

2.When finished, you can press PLAY to stage the next track for recording or pressRECORD to begin adding your next overdub.

57

Recorder

If at anytime you are not satisfied with your current take while recording overdubs with your original loop, you can undo it by pressing the UNDO footswitch. This erases the contents of a track and lets you proceed with trying another take without having to stop. To use the UNDO function while recording a loop, follow these steps:

1.Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display readsrerecord.

2.Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to startre-recording.The display readsundodone and the recorder returns to the beginning of the song and resumes recording on the same track. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request and recording continues unaffected.

Using Quantize for Seamless Loops

When recording loops, it is important that you set the loop length exactly so that your loop is seamless from finish to start. Sometimes our timing may not be perfect when pressing the PLAY footswitch to set the length. The GNX3 provides a Quantize feature that corrects these timing problems to the nearest eighth note. Quantize looks at the point where you pressed the PLAY footswitch in relation to the tempo you are using for your loop. Lets say you were recording a four second loop and you pressed the PLAY footswitch just a little late. No problem, with Quantize enabled, the looper will automatically cut off the extra recording and give you a perfect four second loop. To enable the Quantize feature, follow these steps:

1.Begin with the recorder stopped by pressing the STOP button.

2.Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads:quantize.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to turn the Quantize feature on and off. Quantize only affects delay loops and will not affect songs.

4.Press the EXIT button.

Using the FS300 for Recorder Functions

The GNX3 is equipped with a footswitch jack that allows you to connect an optional FS300 for controlling the GNX3’s recorder. This 3-buttonfootswitch features functions forSTOP/UNDO (switch A),RECORD (switch B), andPLAY (switch C). The FS300 is an ideal companion for JamMan users as it allows you to leave your GNX3 footswitches setup for changing presets or switching amp channels and effects on and off while the FS300 is used for both recording songs and creating loops.

2.Once recording is completed, press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch. This stops the recording process, and saves the track. The TIME display will show the elapsed time used and the TRACK 1 button will be lit green indicating it is now enabled for playback.

Playing Back a Recorded Track

After a track has been recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song, press the C-PLAY footswitch. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the very beginning. If you want to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other than the end of the song, follow these steps:

1.Press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch twice. This will rewind to the beginning of the current song.

2.Press the C-PLAY footswitch. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (track button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.

Recording Multiple Tracks

After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks (overdub) that will play along with it. You will want to play the previously recorded track(s) as a monitoring source while recording new tracks. To overdub a new track with previously recorded tracks do the following:

1.Return the Song to the beginning by pressing the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch twice.

2.Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The next available track for recording will automatically light red, which arms it to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time.

3.When recording is complete, press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch.

Punching In / Punching Out

There may be times you will want to record in the middle of a song rather than from the very beginning. Rather than recording on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you will want to “punch in” the phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track and then punch out. To punch in record do the following:

1.Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is flashing red).

2.Press the C-PLAY footswitch. Any tracks that are armed for playback will begin playing and the TRACK button armed for recording will remain flashing red.

To begin adding overdubbed layers to your first loop is easy. Since TRACK 2 is already armed for recording, press the RECORD footswitch when you are ready to begin recording your overdub.

1.Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 2 button will light solid red and will begin recording on this track.

2.When finished, you can press C-PLAY to arm the next track for recording or just pressB-RECORD to begin adding your next overdub.

If at anytime you are not satisfied with your current take, you can undo it by pressing and holding the A- STOP/UNDO footswitch. This will erase the last recorded track and let you proceed with trying another take without having to stop.

Using Quantize for Seamless Loops

When recording loops using the GNX3’s click track or drum machine, it is important that you set the loop length exactly so that your loop is seamless from finish to start. Sometimes our timing may not be perfect when pressing the PLAY footswitch to set the length. The GNX3 provides a Quantize feature that corrects these timing problems to the nearest eighth note. Quantize looks at the point where you

Recorder

pressed the PLAY footswitch in relation to the tempo you are using for your loop. Lets say you were recording a four second loop and you pressed the PLAY footswitch just a little late. No problem, with Quantize enabled, the looper will automatically cut off the extra recording and give you a perfect four second loop. Same goes for if you pressed the PLAY footswitch a little early. Quantize will push out the length and make it four seconds. To enable the Quantize feature, follow these steps:

1.Start with the recorder stopped by pressing the STOP button.

2.Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads:quantize.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to turn the Quantize feature on or off. Quantize only affects delay loops and will not affect songs.

4.Press the EXIT button.

Now when you record the first loop, your loop will be accurately timed to the nearest quarter note even if your footswitch timing was just a bit off.

NOTE: If the RECORD footswitch is pressed instead of the PLAY footswitch after recording the first

Other Functions

Expression Assign

The GNX3 has several options for real-timecontrol over effects parameters in each of its presets. Parameters can be modified during performance both manually and automatically by several methods. These are referred to as expression controllers and include the following: thebuilt-inExpression Pedal, Internal LFOs (low frequency oscillators), and the Control Footswitch. Each of these controllers can be programmed specifically for each preset, giving you many options for manipulating each in a different manner.

Expression Pedal

The Expression Pedal on the GNX3 can control up to 3 parameters in real time. Each parameter assigned to the Expression Pedal can have specific ranges of how much the parameter is controlled by using the minimum and maximum controls. The GNX3’s Expression Pedal includes DigiTech’s exclusive V-Switch.TheV-Switchlets you switch the Expression Pedal assignment on the fly. Apply extra pressure to the toe of the Expression Pedal to engage theV-Switch,and the Expression Pedal switches between the assigned parameter and the Wah. The sensitivity or amount of pressure required to engage theV-Switchcan be adjusted to suit your personal taste (or weight of your foot). See page 66 for theV-SwitchSensitivity adjustment procedure.

The procedure for assigning a parameter to the Expression Pedal is as follows:

1.Press the Effect Select button until the Exp Assign row has been selected.

2.Press the Status button until the display reads exp pdl1 (Expression Pedal Link 1),exp pdl2 (Expression Pedal Link 2), orexp pdl3 (Expression Pedal Link 3), depending upon which assignment you want to use or the number of parameters you intend to assign.The display alternates between the Expression Pedal selection and the assigned parameter.

3.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the parameter appears in the display. See the Expression Parameter Assignment List on page 38 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.

4.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the parameter reaches with the Expression Pedal in the toe up position (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

5.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the parameter reaches with the Expression Pedal in the toe down position (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

6.Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the storing procedure.

LFOs

The GNX3 includes two low frequency oscillators (LFO1 and LFO2) that can be assigned to the Expression Pedal parameters. A low frequency oscillator automatically varies the value of the assigned parameter at a steady rate. A minimum and maximum value can be assigned. For instance: if the Amp Gain was assigned to LFO1, and the minimum value was set at 1 and the maximum value was set at 99, the GNX3 would automatically sweep the amount of distortion from clean to distorted and back to clean. Individual LFO speeds can also be assigned. In the previous example, the LFO speed would determine the length of time it took the LFO to sweep from the clean to the distorted sound. The procedure for assigning the LFOs in the GNX3 is as follows:

1.Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.

2.Press the STATUS button to assign LFO1 (LFO 1) or LFO2 (LFO 2).

3.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the Parameter is displayed. See the Expression Parameter Assignment list on page 63 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.

4.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter reaches at the

62

Other Functions

bottom turn around point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

5.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter reaches at the top turn around point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

6.Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to select the speed that the LFO oscillates from the minimum to the

maximum values. LFO speed ranges from (.O5 HZ) to 10 Hz (1ºO HZ).

7.Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to select the waveform the LFO oscillates on. Your choices include: triangle (Triangle) - a smooth rise and fall, but abrupt turn around in oscillation.

SINE (Sine) - a smooth rise, fall, and turn around in oscillation.SQUARE (Square) - an abrupt rise, fall, and turn around in oscillation.

8.Store your LFO assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the storing procedure.

Amp Footswitch

From the factory, the Amp Footswitch switches between the Green and the Red Amp Channels. However, the GNX3 lets you select the Amp Footswitch function. The procedure for assigning the function of the Amp Footswitch is as follows:

1.Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.

2.Press the STATUS button until the display readsAMP FS (Amp Footswitch).

3.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to select the Amp Footswitch function. Your choices include:

G-R - Switches between the Green and Red Amp Channels.

G-Y - Switches between the Green and Yellow (Warped) Channels.

R-Y - Switches between the Red and Yellow (Warped) Channels.

G-R-Y - Switches between the Green, Red, and Yellow (Warped) Channels.

4.Store your Amp Footswitch assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the storing.

Control Footswitch

When using the GNX3 in Stompbox mode, FOOTSWITCH 5 becomes a Control Footswitch. This provides even morereal-timeexpressive control during performance when used in conjunction with the Expression pedal. Up to three 3 parameters can be controlled between two different values in each preset using the Control footswitch. The Control footswitch can function in two different ways, as a Toggle footswitch or as a Momentary footswitch.

When using the Toggle function, the Control footswitch behaves like a normal footswitch in that it switches to and ON state when pressed once and then an OFF state when pressed again. This type of function is useful when you want to use it for turning effects like the Compressor or Whammy on and off. It can also be used to toggle between two different parameter settings, for instance, a delay level of 10 or a Delay level of 50.

When using the Momentary function, the Control footswitch switches ON as long as it is being pressed, and turns OFF when it is released. Experimenting with different parameters can produce some very interesting results. For instance, you can assign Pitch Shift amount and have your guitar shift from a fifth above when the Control footswitch is pressed and return to normal pitch when it is released. The procedure for assigning the Control footswitch in the GNX3 is as follows:

1.Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.

2.Press the STATUS button until Control footswitch assignment #1 is displayed,ctrl1 fs (Pressing theSTATUS button again accesses assignments #2 and #3).

Other Functions

3.Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the Parameter is displayed. See the Expression Parameter Assignment list on page 63 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.

4.Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter reaches when the Control footswitch is turned off (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

5.Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter reaches when the Control footswitch is turned on (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).

6.While on Control footswitch assignment #1 only, rotate the Parameter 4 knob to select the type of footswitch function you want it to perform,Toggle, toggle, or Momentary,momentary.

7.Store the assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on storing.

Other Functions

Analog Output Configuration

The GNX3’s analog outputs can be configured several different ways, giving you a variety of signal routing possibilities for both recording and performing applications. The available analog output configurations are: mono (guitar processor and recorder output summed to mono)stereo (guitar processor and recorder output in stereo),g>l r>r (guitar left output, recorder right output),mono gtr (Mono output, guitar processor only), andster gtr (Stereo output, guitar processor only).

When using either Mono or Stereo, both the GNX3’s guitar processing and the recorder’s outputs are mixed together at the analog outputs. When Guitar g>l r>r (guitar left output, recorder right output) is selected, the GNX3’s guitar processing is summed to mono and sent to the left analog output while the recorder’s output is summed to mono and sent to the right analog output. This is useful if you want to run the GNX3 to a guitar amplifier setup (using the Left/Guitar output) while sending the recorder output direct to a mixer (using the Right/Recorder output). When using eithermono gtr (Mono output, guitar processor only), andster gtr (Stereo output, guitar processor only), only the GNX3’s guitar processing is sent to the analog outputs and the recorder output is muted.

To select the analog output configuration, do the following:

1.Press the UTILITY button. The Utility button’s LED lights.

2.Using the MODE orDRUMS button, scroll to the left or right untilanlg out is displayed (Analog Output Configuration setup menu). The display begins flashing betweenanlg out and the selected output configuration. Note:stereo is the default set from the factory

Digital Level

When plugging the GNX3’s digital output into a recording device, it is important that the recording device gets as much signal as possible without being pushed into digital clipping. If your recorder is not receiving enough level from the GNX3’s digital output, you can boost it using the Digital Level option in the Utility menu. The procedure for adjusting the Digital Level is as follows:

1.Press the UTILITY button.The Utility button’s LED lights.

2.Using the MODE orDRUMS buttons, scroll to the left or right untildigil lvl is displayed. The red numeric display reflects the current Digital Level.

3. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to increase or decrease the amount of Digital Level boost needed. Range is from1-20.

4. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.

Digital Output Configuration

The GNX3’s S/PDIF digital output has several combinations of signal routing possibilities for recording and performance situations. As with the analog outputs, the GNX3’s digital outputs can be independently configured for more flexibility when using both analog and digital outputs simultaneously. The different digital output configurations are: gtr+rec (both GNX3 guitar processing and recorder output are mixed in stereo),gtr dry (taps the guitar signal directly off the input),gtr amp (taps the guitar signal off just after the amp modeling and noise gate),recorder (only the GNX3’s recorder output is sent to the digital output).

When using gtr+rec, both the GNX3’s guitar processing and the recorder stereo outputs are mixed together at the digital output. This configuration works well when running the GNX3 directly into two mixer channels.gtr dry andgtr amp configurations are DigiTech’s exclusive Dry Track™ features.gtr dry taps the guitar signal immediately off the input before it runs through the GNX3’s processing. This lets you send an unprocessed guitar signal out the digital output while still monitoring the effects processing through the analog and headphone outputs. You can then bring the signal back into the GNX3’s analog input and hear the same dry guitar signal run through each of the presets.gtr amp taps the signal off just after the noise gate but gives you all the amp and cabinet modeling without the Chorus/Mod, Delay, or Reverb effects processing.recorder is used when only the GNX3’s recorder output is to be sent to the digital output. If you have a live mixer with digital input capability, you can use this configuration in conjunction with thester gtr analog output configuration. Using this combination, the analog outputs send guitar processing to an external guitar amplifier setup while the digital output sends recorder playback to the digital input of the mixer. This gives you the best of both worlds when using the GNX3’s guitar processing and recorder live, with high fidelity recorder output through the mixer and the guitar processing through an amplifier at the same time.
