GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of the GNX3000 Guitar Workstation®.The GNX3000 delivers anaward-winningGeNetXmulti-modelingguitar processor, General MIDI drum machine, and USB Audio/MIDI interface in a single integrated package. Combined with the included suite of recording, editing, and production software, the GNX3000 Guitar Workstation is a complete solution for your performing and recording needs.

The new GNX3000 Guitar Workstation® also features our new advanced Component Based Modeling™ for the most authentic tone you’ve ever heard.

Traditionally, amp modeling has been done either by electronic measurement or A/B comparison between the physical amp and digital algorithms.These methods can create a single amplifier “tone snapshot.” But as we all know, a classic amp is a complex instrument.

Component Based Modeling analyzes the signal path, individual components and acoustic behavior of an amp: preamp and tone stage topology, the type of power stage, its feedback structure and tube saturation characteristics, how the speaker and output transformer interact, cabinet size and composition, and much more.

When combined with traditional electronic measurements and hundreds of hours of critical listening, the result is the first modeling that distorts, saturates, overdrives and generally behaves the way the original amp’s designers intended.The only thing more real is the amp itself!

The GNX3000’s intuitive user interface makes programming as simple as turning a knob. However, your time would be well spent by reading through the Quick Start section on page 3 (as well as the rest of this Owner’s Manual) with your GNX3000 in front of you.

Be sure to visit the sound community at www.digitech.com and www.guitarworkstation.com to exchange custom amps, presets and songs. Plus you can get all the latest updates and lots of cool tips and tricks.

Quick Start

Make Connections

1.Connect your instrument to the GUITAR/INSTRUMENT INPUT on the GNX3000’s rear panel.

2.Connect either the 1/4” orXLR LEFT/RIGHT OUTPUTS to the input(s) of your amplifier(s), power amp, or mixer.

Apply Power

1.Turn the OUTPUT LEVEL knobs (for both the1/4” andXLR OUTPUTS), on the rear panel of the GNX3000, all the way down (fully counter clockwise).

2.Connect the PSS3 power supply to the Power jack on the GNX3000.

3.Connect the other end of the PSS3 power supply to an AC outlet.

4.Turn the GNX3000 POWER SWITCH on.

5.Turn your amplifier(s) on, and adjust the volume(s) to a normal playing level. Gradually turn up the GNX3000’s output level until you reach your desired listening level.

Setups

Here are three of the most popular setups, and one of them is probably what you’re looking for. For additional setups see page 27.

Single Amp

For a simple guitar-to-workstation-to-ampsetup, just plug your guitar into the

GUITAR INPUT (on the back panel) and plug theLEFT 1/4” BALANCED OUTPUT into your amp.Turn Speaker Compensation off for the1/4” OUTPUTS (see page 24).

Quick Start

Headphones

This setup is ideal for practicing when neighbors, roommates or significant others don’t want to listen. Plug your guitar into the GUITAR INPUT and plug your headphones into theHEADPHONE OUTPUT. Note that theHEADPHONE OUTPUT is a 1/4” jack, so if your headphones have an 1/8” jack, you’ll need an adapter (available at your local electronics store).Turn Speaker Compensation on for theXLR OUTPUTS (see page 24) which also enables it for the headphones.

Selecting Presets and Amp Models

Once you’re connected to the GNX3000, you can immediately transform the tone of your guitar with the 130 Factory presets. (There are also 65User presets you can customize; learn how to create a custom preset on page 81.) Within each preset you can also select different amp models that will further alter your guitar’s tone.

Presets

Turn the DATA WHEEL to scroll through the presets.The number and name in the

DISPLAYS change as you turn theDATA WHEEL.When you stop turning theDATA

WHEEL, the selected preset is automatically loaded. Play your guitar to hear it.

Data Wheel

NAME 64

Preset Bank LEDs

Look at the Preset Bank LEDs to the left of the DATA WHEEL, and notice that either theUser,Factory 1 orFactory 2 LED is lit.When you get to the end of one bank, you start at the beginning of the next bank.

Amp and Cabinet Models

You can choose and customize a virtual amp/cabinet combo to run your guitar signal through. (In this case,“amp” refers to the head, where all the knobs and tubes or electronics reside, and “cabinet” refers to the enclosure where the speakers are mounted.) For example, you can select the 62 bman amp model, which by default uses two12-inchspeakers in a Blonde cabinet (Blnd2x12). Then, if you want to, you can change the cabinet to a British model with four 12inch speakers (Brit4x12), which would result in the sound of a Bassman® head powering British speakers.

GNX3000 Special Features

This section describes some of the GNX3000’s unique characteristics in simple, easy- to-understandlanguage and directs you to the pages where you can learn more about them.

Modes

The GNX3000 operates in one of three different modes.The active mode corresponds directly to what functions the footswitches control.The modes are called Preset, Stompbox, and Record/Drum.These modes are described in detail on page 36.The short description goes like this: Preset Mode lets you easily change between groups of presets; Stompbox Mode lets you change between individual presets and modify their settings with the FOOTSWITCHES; Record/Drum Mode gives youHands-FreeTM control of the recording and drum machine functions.

To change modes, switch amp channels, and turn effects on and off, press the MODE button (to the right of theDATA WHEEL) or step onFOOTSWITCHES 4 and5 simultaneously. Each time the mode is changed, the name of the new mode will be displayed briefly.

Amp Channels 1 and 2

Not only does the GNX3000 let you choose from a garage full of simulated amp head and cabinet combinations (page 44), you can set up two different combinations within the same preset and quickly switch back and forth between them.

For example, you can set up a Mesa/Boogie® Dual RectifierTM model amp on Channel 1 and a ‘65 Fender® Deluxe Reverb® amp model on Channel 2.You can play through either amp by switching channels with theAMP CHANNEL FOOTSWITCH (FOOTSWITCH 1) when the GNX3000 is in Stompbox Mode.

Amp Channel - Warped

A third channel can exist in addition to Channel 1 and Channel 2; we call this the Warped channel (yellow LED). Choose theWarped channel to hear a unique amp and cabinet combination based on the amps and cabinets assigned to the Channel 1 and Channel 2.

Refer to the Amp Channel Footswitch section on page 76 for more information.

HyperModels

A HyperModelTM is a custom user amp and cabinet model that is made by warping two different amp/cabinet combinations together.You can select a HyperModel like any other amp/cabinet model.

See page 81 for details about how to create a HyperModel; see page 44 for more on amp and cabinet models.

Audio Routing Setups

Audio Routing Setups

Setups Introduction

The GNX3000 is equipped with four inputs and four outputs that can be configured several different ways for both live and recording applications.These settings determine which pair of outputs the guitar processing, MIC andLINE INPUTS are routed to and how theMIC orLINE INPUTS are routed through the GNX3000’s effects processing. For example, today you may be practicing with headphones, tomorrow you may be recording on your computer, and next week you might be performing at a club, running your guitar and vocals through monitors and a PA system.The GNX3000 has different input/output options that are designed for each of those situations, and more.

Output Setups

The GNX3000 features both 1/4" andXLR OUTPUTS on the rear panel.These jacks let you simultaneously connect the GNX3000 to an amplifier/speaker system on stage via the1/4" OUTPUTS and connect directly to your PA system via theXLR OUTPUTS.

Press the OUTPUT SETUP button and turn theDATA WHEEL to select one of the Output Setup options. Press theEXIT button to save your selection.

Audio Routing Setups

Speaker Compensation

Both the 1/4” andXLR OUTPUTS can be used in a variety of ways.They can be plugged directly into guitar combo amp inputs, XLR inputs on a power amp connected to

an external speaker cabinet, into mixer channels, and directly into full range studio monitors. Depending on which application you are using them for, you can enable or disable Speaker Compensation on either output pair independently.

Speaker Compensation is to be used when the outputs of the GNX3000 will be played through a full range speaker system and emulates the rolled off response that a guitar cabinet normally provides without having to use one.An example of where you would want Speaker Compensation turned on is when the outputs are connected to a mixer which is connected to your band’s PA system, or when plugging the outputs directly into powered studio monitors while recording.

When running into the front end of an amp or into a power amp connected to a guitar speaker cabinet, you will most likely want Speaker Compensation disabled on the outputs that are being used. If you want to use one set of outputs for running into

a guitar amp and the other pair for running direct to the PA, just enable Speaker Compensation on the outputs connected to the mixer.

To enable or disable Speaker Compensation, follow these steps:

1.Press the OUTPUT SETUP button.

2.Use the NEXT button to selectSC XLR in theDISPLAY and use theDATA WHEEL to turn Speaker Compensation on or off (the default factory setting ison).

3.Press the NEXT button again to selectSC 1/4 in the display and use theDATA WHEEL to turn Speaker Compensation on or off (the default factory setting isoff).

4.Press the EXIT button.

Mic and Line Setups

You can configure the MIC andLINE INPUTS routing for live performance and recording applications. The GNX3000 acts as a mixing device forMIC andLINE INPUTS, and can eliminate the need for a mixer when the outputs are to be plugged directly into afull-rangepowered speaker system.When enabled, these inputs can be routed around or through some or all of the effects processing and then mixed directly into the GNX3000’s1/4” andXLR OUTPUTS.

Use the SHIFT>MIC andSHIFT>LINE buttons along with theDATA WHEEL to select the

Mic/Line Setup options.

Mic Line

Button Button

Shift

Button

Both MIC andLINE INPUTS have four settings that can be independently selected.

They are as follows:

MIC OFF/LINE OFF-

MIC andLINE INPUTS are disabled.

MIC DRY/LINe DRY -

MIC andLINE INPUTS are routed directly to GNX3000’s outputs,

 

bypassing all effects processing.

MIC RVB/LINe RVB-

MIC andLINE INPUTS are routed through delay and reverb effects

 

of the current preset.

MIC FX/LINE FX-

MIC andLINE INPUTS are routed through all effects of the current

 

preset.

For more information about how these settings are routed, refer to the charts on pages 21 through 23.

Optimizing the Mic and Line Input Levels

Optimizing the Mic and Line Input Levels

To properly use MIC andLINE INPUTS for recording, it is best to optimize their levels for best signal to noise performance. This can be done one of two ways on the GNX3000:

Mic Level Optimization

The MIC INPUT has an input level that can be used for optimizing the levels for singing live, recording tracks to the computer, and matching levels with your guitar. While singing or during an acoustic performance, adjust theMIC INPUT level on the back panel of the GNX3000 until theCLIP LED next to theCONTROL PANEL lights only occasionally during the loudest parts of the performance.

Line Level Optimization

When an external source such as an electronic keyboard or a submix from an external mixer is brought into the GNX3000’s LINE INPUTS, it is ideal to have enough level control to optimize these signals from the source. If the signal is weak and cannot

be made strong enough from the source, you can increase the USB 1-2level or USB3-4level until theCLIP LED lights only occasionally during the loudest parts of the performance.

See more in the Computer Recording via USB section of this manual and your recording application’s User’s Guide for more information on proper level adjustment for recording.

Live Performance Setups

The GNX3000 was designed to be extremely flexible to meet any of your application needs. For many GNX3000 users, its primary purpose will be for use in live performances.The following diagrams show examples of how to utilize the GNX3000 in typical live performance applications.

NOTE: Before making connections to the GNX3000, make sure both the GNX3000 and your amplifier(s) are turned OFF.

Small Club Setup (Mono Amp Rig)

This diagram demonstrates a minimum setup for using the GNX3000 in a typical, small club performance setup.All you need is your guitar, two guitar cables, and an amp.This connection scheme also applies for use with a power amp/speaker cabinet rig.

Amplifier

Guitar Input

Left 1/4" Balanced Output

1.Connect your guitar to the GNX3000’s GUITAR INPUT.

2.Connect a single mono instrument cable from the LEFT 1/4" BALANCED OUTPUT of the GNX3000 to the instrument input or the effect return on your amplifier.

3.Press the GNX3000’s OUTPUT SETUP button and select "MONO1/4" mode using theDATA WHEEL.

4.Turn OFF Speaker Compensation for the 1/4" BALANCED OUTPUTS in the 1/4” Speaker Compensation menu (described on page 24).

NOTE: When connecting the GNX3000 to a guitar amp(s), it may be best to connect the GNX3000’s Output to your amp’s effects return to avoid coloration of the tone due to the amplifier’s tone controls.

Large Stage Setup (Stereo Amp/Cabinet Rig)

A large stage rig lets you really pull out all the stops since space isn’t necessarily an issue, but volume usually is. For this application, plug your guitar into the GNX3000 and connect mono instrument cables from the 1/4" OUTPUTS into a stereo power amp feeding two cabinets. Using two cabinets gives you much more dramatic stereo separation and helps widen the sweet spot for your sound when you move onstage. Another great idea is to run theXLR OUTPUTS directly into the house P.A. and have the sound engineer control your front of house volume in the overall mix.Then if you need to turn up your stage volume, you won’t upset him by trying to rebalance your guitar volume in the house mix.This diagram demonstrates a typical, large stage performance setup.

About the GNX3000

While the tuner is selected, you can set your tuning reference with the DATA WHEEL. The default factory setting is A=440 Hz.The tuning references range from 427 Hz to 453 Hz(± 50 cents (1/2 semitone) from either direction of 440 Hz). Below 427 Hz, are alternate dropped tunings.The alternate tunings are REF A(A=Ab), REF G(A=G), and REF G(A=Gb).The display window briefly flashes the selected tuning preference.

Footswitch Modes

When you first apply power to the GNX3000, it powers up in one of three Footswitch Modes: Preset, Stompbox, or Record/Drum.The Footswitch Modes are selected in two different ways:

Press the MODE button (located to the right of theDATA WHEEL)

OR

Press and hold FOOTSWITCHES 4 and5 simultaneously.

Depending on which mode is selected, the DOWN/UP FOOTSWITCH LEDs will light a different color.When Preset Mode is selected, these footswitches will be lit green.When Stompbox Mode is selected, these footswitches will be lit yellow.And when Record/ Drum Mode is selected, these footswitches will be lit red. In any of the modes, the display shows the selected preset’s name and number.The vertical LEDs on the Matrix indicate which effects are active for the selected preset.

Preset Mode

The GNX3000’s Presets are grouped into thirteen banks of five presets. When Preset Mode is active the DOWN/UP FOOTSWITCHES are used to select one of the thirteenUser, thirteenFactory 1, or thirteenFactory 2 Banks. Successive presses of theDOWN/UP FOOTSWITCHES advance through allUser/Factory Banks. Pressing and holding theDOWN/UP FOOTSWITCHES scrolls through theUser/Factory Banks. Once a Bank is selected,FOOTSWITCHES 1-5 will flash indicating a preset within that bank can be selected. If a preset is not selected within 5 seconds, the GNX3000 returns to the currently selected bank and preset.A second press of an active Preset’s footswitch bypasses the preset.Another press reloads the preset.

Amp/Cabinet Modeling

Amp/Cabinet Modeling

The GNX3000 was designed to make sound processing easy and intuitive. Because the GNX3000 provides both Amp Modeling and Effects Processing, the editing functions are divided into two sections: the AMP/CABINET MODELING section and theEFFECTS section. The GeNetXTM technology contained in the GNX3000 lets you go much further than mere Amp Modeling. GeNetX lets you create your own Amp/Cabinet HyperModelTM and store this custom creation to a User Amp/Cabinet location. When editing either theAMP/CABINET MODELING or theEFFECTS section, you must start with one of theUser orFactory presets. The preset you begin with does not need to be in the location that you intend to save it.

After selecting a preset, you can select the Amp or Cabinet models for your preset. Amp/Cabinet Modeling applies the tone of one of several vintage or modern Amp and Cabinet models to your guitar signal. The GNX3000 includes 33 guitar Amp Models, 10 Bass Amp Models, 2 Acoustic Guitar Models, and 29 Speaker Cabinet Models.Your choices include:

Editing Amps and Cabinets

Each GNX3000 preset has three channels, Channel 1 (green), Channel 2 (red), and Warp (yellow). Amp channels 1 and 2 have selectable amps and cabinets. Each channel has independent controls for gain, level, EQ, and cabinet tuning. The Warp channel is effectively a mixture of the Channel 1 and 2 amps and cabinets using the Warp knob in the AMP CONTROLS section of the matrix. When parameter values have changed, the Store LED lights indicating the preset has been modified and needs to be stored (see page 92 for more on the storing procedure).

Once you have selected your amps for Channel 1 and 2, you can switch between these, as well as the Warp channel, using the Amp Channel footswitch (Stompbox Mode only) or the STATUS button (GeNetX row is active) when the preset name is displayed. The following sections guide you through the process of selecting amps and cabinets, adjusting amp parameters, performing cabinet tuning, and creating then saving a HypermodelTM Amp.

 

 

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

Selecting Amps and Cabinets

The first step to editing an Amp/Cabinet model, or creating your own HyperModelTM is to select the Amp and Cabinet model for Channel 1 and Channel 2 in your preset. The procedure for selecting Amps or Cabinets is as follows:

1.Press the GENETX AMP CONTROLbutton.

2.Use KNOB 1 to select the Amp for Channel 1. The Amp name appears in the display. (See page 44 for a complete list ofAmp Models.)

4.Use KNOB 2 to select the Cabinet for Channel 1. The Cabinet name appears in the display. See page 46 for a complete list ofCabinet Types.)

5.Use KNOB 4 to select the Amp for Channel 2. The Amp name appears in the display.

6.Use KNOB 5 to select the Cabinet for Channel 2. The Cabinet name appears in the display.

Adjusting Amp Parameters

The Gain, EQ, and Level Parameters can be adjusted individually for Channel 1 and Channel 2.This is accomplished by pressing the TONE Amp Control button. The sound that you hear while adjusting the knobs depends on the state of theSTATUS button and theKNOBS (see chart below). When theTONE row is selected, theSTATUS button steps through four states in the following order:

Ch1 amp - TheSTATUS button LED lights green and the five control knobs light green indicating that you are listening to Channel 1 and the control knobs affect Channel 1’s tone settings.

Ch1 warp - TheSTATUS button LED lights yellow and the five control knobs light green indicating that you are listening to a warped sound and the control knobs affect Channel 1’s tone settings.

Ch2 amp - TheSTATUS button LED lights red and the five control knobs light red indicating that you are listening to Channel 2 and the control knobs affect Channel 2’s tone settings.

Ch2 warp - TheSTATUS button LED lights yellow and the five control knobs light red indicating that you are listening to a warped sound and the control knobs affect Channel 2’s tone settings.

The Gain ranges from 0 (0) to 99 (99). The Bass, Midrange, and Treble EQ range from-12dB(-12)to +12dB (12). The Level ranges from 0 (0) to 99 (99). The procedure for adjusting these parameters is as follows:

1.Press the TONE Amp Control button.

2.Press the STATUS button to select either Channel 1 Amp (Green) or Channel 2 Amp (Red).

3.Use Knobs 1 through5 to adjust the Gain,Tone, and Level of the selected amp channel.

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

Amp/Cabinet Modeling

Cabinet Tuning

Cabinet tuning actually changes the resonant frequency of the selected cabinet. This is useful for changing the tonality of your sound without having to touch the EQ parameters. Tuning down gives the sound more bottom end while tuning up enhances higher frequencies. The procedure for tuning the cabinets is as follows:

1.Press the CHAN ONE EQ or theCHAN TWO EQ Amp Control button to access the Cabinet Tuning parameters.

2.Use KNOB 1 to adjust the Cabinet Tuning resonance. The Cabinet Tuning ranges are from-12.0(one octave below) to 12.0 (one octave above) the cabinet’s standard resonance.

Storing Amp Parameter Edits

Once you are satisfied with your amp edits, these changes need to be stored so that they can be recalled later. See page 92 for more information on storing changes to a preset.

Creating HyperModelsTM

Creating new, unique HyperModels is what Digitech’s GeNetXTM technology is all about. Once both channels Amps and Cabinets are selected and the Amp Parameters and Cabinet Tunings have been adjusted, GeNetX technology lets you do something amazing. The characteristics of each Amp and Cabinet can be combined or “Warped” to create a completely new custom HyperModel Amp. The procedure for Warping the Channel 1 and Channel 2 Amps together is as follows:

1.Press the GENETX amp control button.

2.Rotate KNOB 3 to Warp the Channel 1 and Channel 2 Amps and Cabinets together. Rotating itcounter-clockwiseemphasizes the Channel 1 characteristics while rotating it clockwise emphasizes the Channel 2 characteristics. A warp value of 1 produces the amp tone of only the Channel 1 (Green) Amp. A warp value of 99 produces the amp tone of only the Channel 2 (Red) Amp.

Saving HyperModelsTM (Amp Save)

When you have found your ideal warp setting for Channel 1’s and Channel 2’s Amp Models, you can save this sound as a HyperModel for future use. This HyperModel can be saved in one of 9 User locations. After it has been saved, it can now be selected by either Amp Channel as the starting point for a new HyperModel. The Amp Save procedure is as follows:

1.Press the AMP SAVE button. TheAMP SAVE button will begin flashing and the display will readNEWAMP. TheN ofNEWAMP is flashing indicating that you can name your HyperModel.

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

 

 

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

48

 

 

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

3.Use the NEXT button to move to the next character (to the right), or thePREV button to select the previous character (to the left).

4.Repeat steps 2 and 3 you have finished naming the new HyperModelTM.

5.Press the AMP SAVE button again to select one of the 9 User HyperModel locations. If all HyperModel locations in the GNX3000 are available, the display will readU1. TheU1 flashes, indicating that this is the first available location for storing a HyperModel. If one or more HyperModels have already been stored, the number displayed will be the first empty HyperModel location. If all 9 HyperModel locations are full, the GNX3000 defaults to the first HyperModel location and displaysU1 and the name of the HyperModel stored in the first location.

6.Use the DATA WHEEL to select aUser 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 theEXIT button 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 92 for information on storing changes to a preset.

Effect Definitions

Each Effect within the GNX3000 is fully programmable. Understanding how these effects modify 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 GNX3000 works.

Wah-Pickup

A Wah is an effect controlled by the EXPRESSION PEDAL. A Wah applies a boost in gain to a narrow band of frequencies. As theEXPRESSION 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 toe of theEXPRESSION PEDAL.

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

The STATUS button (or theEXPRESSION PEDAL toe switch) turns the Wah (Wah) on and off.

Wah Type

KNOB 1 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 Pedal

KNOB 2 controls the pedal (wah pdl) parameter that adjusts the wah sweep when the wah is active. The wah sweep range is from0-99.TheEXPRESSION PEDAL is automatically linked to this parameter when the wah is activated. To adjust the minimum and maximum range, see theWah Pedal section on page 75.

Pickup Type/Off

KNOB 3 selects the type of Pickup to 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.

Knob 4

No function when the Wah-Pickupis selected.

Preset Level

KNOB 5 adjusts the overall preset level. Ranges from0-99.

Effects and Parameters

Compressor

A compressor is used to increase sustain, and even out the volume dynamics in 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

The STATUS button turns the Compressor (Compress) on and off.

Attack

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

Ratio

KNOB 2 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. Ratio settings are: 1.2:1(¡2-1),1.5:1(¡5-1),1.8:1(¡8-1),2:1(2-1),2.5:1(2.5-1),3:1 (£0- 1), 4:1(¢0-1),5:1(∞0-1),8:1(•0-1),10:1(10-1),20:1(20-1),and Infinity:1(INFnty-1).

Threshold

KNOB 3 selects the Threshold (threshld). The Threshold is the level a signal must 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 from 0 to 99.

Gain

KNOB 4 adjusts the Output Gain (CMP 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 from0 to20 (dB).

Knob 5

No function when the Compressor is selected.

TalkerTM

The Talker is an effect that lets your instrument’s signal be manipulated by your voice. The Talker requires a microphone be connected to the MIC INPUT on the rear panel of the GNX3000. As you speak into the microphone, your instrument mimics what you say. There are five Talker types.

Type

KNOB 1 is used to select one of the 5 Talker types.Talker Types range fromtalker 1 (deep tonal characteristics), totalker 5 (bright tonal characteristics).

Parameter 1

KNOB 2 adjusts theSensitivity of the microphone level (MIC LEVL). 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. If the input is too strong, the Talker will clip making the words unintelligible. Adjust the mic level on the GNX3000’s rear panel so that the LEDs light, but stay below the clip level. (SeeMic Level Optimization on page 26 for more information regarding mic level adjustment.)

Delay

Delay records a portion of the incoming signal, and plays it back a short time later. The recorded segment can repeat just once, several times, or infinitely (that turns off the input to the Delay and lets you play over the top of a passage in the Delay loop). The Delay in the GNX3000 also includes a Ducker Threshold that lets you set the signal strength required before the Delay records. This feature lets you control the Delay with your playing.

Delay On/Off

The STATUS button turns the Delay (delay) on and off.

Delay Type

KNOB 1 selects one of the five different types of Delay. The Delay choices include:MONO (clear concise repeats),pingpong (bounces from side to side),ANALOG (deteriorates with each repeat),anlgpong (side to side with deterioration),Spread (clear concise repeats with stereo imaging)

Time

KNOB 2 adjusts the length of time between repeats. Ranges from 0 through 2000 milliseconds (2 seconds) (0 MS through2000 MS) in 1 ms increments. Use theDATA WHEEL while the Delay Time appears in the Display to adjust the Delay Time in 100 ms increments.

Expression Pedal Assignment

The GNX3000 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 thebuilt-inEXPRESSION PEDAL and the Internal LFOs (low frequency oscillators) Each of these controllers can be programmed specifically for each preset, giving you many options for manipulating parameters in different ways.

Expression Pedal

The EXPRESSION PEDAL on the GNX3000 can control up to 3 parameters in real time. Each parameter assigned to theEXPRESSION PEDAL can have specific ranges of how much the parameter is controlled by using the minimum and maximum controls.

Apply extra pressure to the toe of the EXPRESSION PEDAL to activate the toe switch, and theEXPRESSION PEDAL switches between the assigned parameters and the Wah.

Expression Pedal Links 1-3

Each preset can have up to 3 parameters assignments to the EXPRESSION PEDAL. Each assignment has the following assignment options:

1.Parameter Type (see parameter list on page 77)

2.Min Value

3.Max Value

The procedure for assigning a parameter to the EXPRESSION PEDAL is as follows:

1.Press either EFFECT SELECT button until theEXPRESSION ASSIGN row is selected.

2.Press the STATUS button until the display readsexp 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.

3.Rotate KNOB 1 until the parameter appears in the display. See the Expression Parameter Assignment List on page 77 for a complete list of assignable parameters.

4.Rotate KNOB 2 to select the minimum value the parameter reaches with the Expression Pedal in the toe up position.

5.Rotate KNOB 3 to select the maximum value the parameter reaches with the Expression Pedal in the toe down position.

6.Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 92 for more information on storing presets.

Wah Pedal

The wah effect can be programmed to have specific heel and toe ranges in each preset. These settings are configured in the EXPRESSION ASSIGN row of the matrix. To customize the heel/toe range for the wah effect, follow these steps:

 

 

75

GNX3000 Owner’s Manual

 

 

Expression Pedal Assignment

1. Press either EFFECT SELECT button until theEXPRESSION ASSIGN row is selected. 2. Press theSTATUS button multiple times untilWAH PDL appears in the display.

3.Rotate KNOB 2 to set the heel position of the wah effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.

4.Rotate KNOB 3 to set the toe position of the wah effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.

5.Press EXIT when finished.

Amp Channel Footswitch

From the factory, the AMP CHANNEL FOOTSWITCH selects between the Channel 1 Amp, Channel 2 Amp, and the Warped Amp state when the GNX3000 is in Stompbox Mode. However, you can configure the function of theAMP CHANNEL FOOTSWITCH within a preset.

The procedure for assigning the function of the AMP CHANNEL FOOTSWITCH is as follows:

1.Press either EFFECT SELECT button until theEXPRESSION ASSIGN row is selected.

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

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

CH1-CH2 - Switches between the Channel 1 (Green) and the Channel 2 (Red) Amp Channels.

CH1-Warp - Switches between the Channel 1 (Green) and the Warped Amp (Yellow) Channels.

CH2-Warp - Switches between the Channel 2 (Red) and the Warped Amp (Yellow) Channels.

C1-c2-wp - Switches between the Channel 1(Green), the Warped (Yellow) Channel, and the Channel 2 (Red) Channels.

4.Store your Amp Footswitch assignment to your preset. See page 92 for more information on storing presets.

LFOs

The GNX3000 includes two low frequency oscillators (LFO1 and LFO2) that can each be assigned to a single parameter. 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 GNX3000 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.

Creating a Preset

Suppose you wanted to create your own HyperModelTM that incorporates the sweet tones of a vintage Tweed using an British 1x12 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 guide steps you through the process of creating just that preset in the GNX3000. Start by selecting Stompbox Mode (yellow), using theMODE button.

Selecting a Preset

The first step to create a custom preset of your own is to select a starting point. You can start with any existing preset, but for this example let’s start with Factory 1 Preset 40. Use the DATA WHEEL orFOOTSWITCHES (when the GNX3000 is in either Preset or Stompbox Mode) to select Factory 1 Preset 40.

Create a HyperModelTM

For this example, we are going to use a vintage Tweed amp with an British 1x12 Cabinet, and warp it with a Rectified Amp using a British 4x12 cabinet.

Select Channel 1 Amp and Cabinet

To assign the vintage Tweed amp to Channel 1 do the following:

1.Press the GENETX Amp Control button to access each channel’s amp and cabinet models.

Select Models for the Preset’s Channels

In the previous steps, we selected a Tweed amp model for the Channel 1 amp and a Rectified amp model for the Channel 2 amp. Then we warped the two together to create our HyperModelTM. This HyperModel is saved as an amp type that we named Rectwed, 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 now select the Dreadnaught acoustic guitar model for Channel 1’s amp and our custom Rectwed for Channel 2’s amp in our preset. This procedure is as follows:

1.Press the GENETX Amp Control button.

2.Rotate KNOB 1 until the display readsAC dread. This is Channel 1’s Model for the preset.

3.Rotate KNOB 4 until the display readsRECTWeD (our new HyperModel). This is Channel 2’s Model for the preset. This lets us toggle between these two sounds using the Amp Footswitch (when Preset Mode is active).

Computer Recording via USB

The GNX3000’s USB connection provides 4 channels of audio streaming into the computer and 2 channels of playback from the computer simultaneously.

Recording has never been easier thanks to the Hands-FreeTM tracking environment that the GNX3000 and the Pro Tracks PlusTM software provide. The GNX3000’sFOOTSWITCHES and Pro Tracks Plus software work seamlessly together to automatically insert, arm, record, play, and delete tracks on the fly without ever having to take your hands off the guitar. Multiple recording configurations can be selected to best optimize your recording needs. For more information please refer to theAudio Routing for USB Recording section starting on page 102.

ASIO/Mac Mode vs. WDM Mode

Recording applications run in a number of different modes; two of the most common modes are WDM and ASIO/Mac.WDM and ASIO/Mac offer the least amount of latency for the audio signal between the GNX3000 and the computer it’s connected to.

When the GNX3000 ships from the factory, it is configured to record in ASIO/Mac mode. In ASIO/Mac mode,Windows® sees the GNX3000 as a 4-in,2-outaudio device. In WDM mode,Windows sees the GNX3000 as a2-in,2-outdevice and an additional2-in0-outdevice.

Changing USB Mode (ASIO/Mac or WDM)

The GNX3000 supports two USB driver modes:ASIO/Mac and WDM.ASIO/Mac is the default mode, and is for use with Macintosh computers and applications that support ASIO drivers.WDM is for use with all other applications.

To change the USB mode:

1.Turn off the GNX3000.

2.Press and hold the MODE button.

3.While holding the MODE button, turn the GNX3000 on.

3.Use the DATA WHEEL to change the USB mode. Chooseasio/mac if you’re using a Mac or ASIO compatible application, orwdm if you’re using a WDM compatible application.

4.Turn off the GNX3000.

5.Turn on the GNX3000.The selected USB mode is now active.

Installing the GNX3000’s Software Suite

The GNX3000 USB drivers must first be installed before using either the Pro Tracks Plus recording software or the X-EditTM Editor/Librarian. These drivers are found on the GNX3000 Software Install CD that came packaged with the GNX3000. To install the software suite, insert the disc into your computer’sCD-ROMdrive and follow theon-screenprompts. Please review the Pro Tracks Plus documentation (located

Computer Recording via USB

on the Software Install CD) to ensure your computer system meets the necessary requirements prior to installation. Once installed and configured, the GNX3000 can then control Pro Tracks Plus and its recording functions.

Connecting the GNX3000 to the Computer

The GNX3000 comes equipped with a USB cable that is to be connected to your computer whenever you will be recording or using the X-EditEditor/Librarian. We recommend that you only use the USB cable that is shipped with the GNX3000 since it has been tested and approved for this specific use.

To connect the GNX3000 to the computer, follow these steps:

1.Install the GNX3000’s software suite (described above).

2.Begin with the GNX3000’s power turned off.

3.Plug the small end of the USB cable in to the USB jack on the back of the GNX3000.

4.Plug the large flat end of the USB cable into an available USB port on your computer.

5.Turn on the power to the GNX3000.

NOTE: DigiTech recommends that you do not use the GNX3000 as your default sound playback device. This is configured in Windows in the Control Panel under the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Windows Audio Samples are generally recorded at full scale level and if played back through the GNX3000 may be very loud in comparison with the configuration of audio level in the GNX3000.

Audio Routing for USB Recording

This section will cover the GNX3000’s inputs and how they are routed for recording on your computer via USB.

Inputs and Recording Routing (4 In/2 Out USB Audio Interface)

The GNX3000 has four audio inputs, the GUITAR INPUT,MIC INPUT, andLEFT/ RIGHT LINE INPUTS. Each of these inputs can be used to record audio and each has multiple routing configurations available. For instance, in a given recording session you may want to record guitar with effects, a dry guitar only, vocal with or without effects, or both the guitar processing and theLINE INPUTS. The GNX3000’s flexible routing lets you record each of these inputs in different combinations and even lets you utilize the GNX3000’s effects processing if desired, giving you a wide variety of options for your particular recording application. Having an understanding of how the GNX3000’s inputs and routing options function is the best way to optimize your recording experience.

 

Input Sources

 

The GNX3000 has two recording input selections called Input Sources. Each of

 

these Input Sources offer several routing configurations for a variety of recording

 

options. The Input Sources are selected by first pressing the SHIFT button to

 

enable the Shift function and then using the USB 1-2 SRC andUSB 3-4 SRC buttons

in the Control Panel and the DATA WHEEL. Up to four channels of audio can be recorded on the computer via USB. Each Input Source routes a pair of signals (exceptMONO FX,MONO ALL,DRY GUITAR,DRY MIC, andDRUMS MN which are mono signals) to the computer. The Input Sources signal combinations are as follows:

USB 1-2 Source stereofx

All input sources that are routed through the GNX3000’s effects are sent as a stereo pair up USB 1 and 2 channels. Drums, Dry Mic, and Dry Line are not recorded.

Guitar Signal Routing

The guitar signal is routed from the input through the GNX3000’s effects processing and then to the pairs of analog outputs. There are two paths in which the guitar signal can be routed up the USB port to the computer. Path A taps the guitar signal off at the input and sends unprocessed signal up the USB port. PathC taps the guitar signal at the output of the GNX3000 and includes any effects processing that may be used. Signals recorded fromUSB Send Path A can be played back later through the GNX3000 forre-amping.SeeRe-Amping a Guitar Track on page 114 for more information on how this feature works.

The mic signal, as can be seen in the Mic Signal Routing diagram, has two paths in which it is routed up the USB port to the computer. Path E taps the mic signal off at theMIC INPUT and sends unprocessed signal up to the USB port. PathC taps the signal at the output of the GNX3000 and can include any effects processing that may be used. Below is a matrix to show where the signal is tapped based on how the Mic,USB 1-2 Source, andUSB 3-4 Source settings are configured.

Line Input Signal Routing

The Line signals, like the mic signal, can be routed in different ways through the GNX3000. Line OFF disables theLINE INPUTS from being heard out the analog outputs, but they still may be recorded usingsteroall,Mono all, anddry line as the input source.LINE DRY routes the left and right line signals around the GNX3000’s effects processing and mixes them in at the left

and right outputs respectively. line rvb routes the line signal only through the GNX3000’s Delay and Reverb modules.LINE FX sums the left and right input signals together and then routes this signal through all the GNX3000’s effects.

The line input signals, as can be seen in the previous Line Signal Routing diagram, have two paths in which they are routed up the USB port to the computer. Path F taps theLINE INPUT signals off at the line input and sends unprocessed signal up the USB port. PathC taps these signals at the output of the GNX3000 and can include any effects processing that may be used. Below is a matrix to show where the signal is tapped based on how the Line,USB 1-2 Source, andUSB 3-4 Source settings are configured.

Recording the GNX3000 Drums and MIDI

You can use MIDI drum files for playing the GNX3000 drum samples as long as the events are mapped to the MIDI notes shown on page 128. The drum samples of the GNX3000 only respond to MIDI messages transmitted on MIDI channel 10, which is the default channel for General MIDI drums.

For a complete list of the General MIDI Drum Samples see page 128.

MIDI and Recording

The GNX3000 features MIDI IN andOUT JACKS which serve several purposes:

1.MIDI IN can be used for remote control of the GNX3000 from external MIDI devices such as MIDI sequencers and MIDI controller pedals (GNX3000 receives program changes, CC parameter control).

2.MIDI IN can be used as your MIDI interface to the computer allowing recording of MIDI events to Pro Tracks Plusor other recording software applications via USB.

3.MIDI OUT can be used as the MIDI out of your computer recording and sequencer application for controlling external MIDI devices such as keyboards or sound modules.

USB Playback Mix

The DATA WHEEL is an easy way to balance the GNX3000’s processing with playback from the Pro Tracks PlusTM software using a single control. This function is only available when the GNX3000 is connected to the computer via USB and Pro Tracks Plus is up and running. To change the USB Playback mix, follow these steps:

2.Press the SHIFT button then press theUSB PLAY MIX button (both are located in the Control Panel).

3.Turn the DATA WHEEL to balance the level of GNX3000 guitar processing and playback level. When the display readsUSB MIX 0 it indicates that only

GNX3000 GUITAR,MIC, andLINE INPUT signals will be heard. Rotating this knob clockwise, you will begin to hear the playback level increase.GNX mix 50 indicates the GNX3000/computer playback mix is a 50/50 mix of both signals. Continuing to rotate the knob clockwise will decrease GNX3000 level.GNX MIX 0 indicates that only playback from the computer will be heard.

When the GNX3000 is not connected to your computer via USB, the USB Playback Mix parameter is hidden and returned to normal operating levels independent of USB. If your GNX3000 is not connected to your computer and you press the SHIFT button and then the USB PLAY MIX button, the GNX3000 will displayNO USB.

USB 1-2Level/USB3-4Level

The USB 1-2 LVL andUSB 3-4 LVL knobs are used for boosting or cutting the amount of signal sent out the USB port to the computer. These controls are to be used if the signal level of the input source (mic, line input, guitar) isn’t optimized into your recording software (consult the Pro Tracks Plus User’s Guide for information on proper recording levels). If the signal is too hot to Pro Tracks Plus, use these controls

to decrease the level. The USB 1-2 LVL andUSB 3-4 LVL parameters control the level for each USB pair of outputs so for example, ifsum+mic is the selected USB1-2Source, increasing the level for the mic 6dB going up USB 2 will also increase the summed signal by 6dB going up USB 1. To increase or decrease the level of audio going up to the computer, follow these steps.

1.Play/sing through the GNX3000 and check the level of signal reaching the recording software (consult the Pro Tracks PlusTM User’s Guide for information on how to view recording signal levels).

2.Use whichever USB Level knob to boost or cut the signal level going to the recording software. The boost/cut range is from -12dB(usb 1-2 -12)to +24dB (usb 1-2 24).TheDATA WHEEL may also be used to change the selected USB level.

MIDI Mapping

MIDI Mapping provides access to all factory and user presets from external MIDI program change commands that may not correspond to the GNX3000 preset. This is useful when multiple MIDI devices are chained together and controlled by one central unit. For example, the main MIDI controller can send out a program change command telling a particular MIDI unit to change to Program 10, but you may want the GNX3000 to change to User Preset 27. You can remap the GNX3000 so when it receives MIDI Program change 10, it calls up User Preset 27. The Procedure for mapping MIDI program changes is as follows:

Troubleshooting Guide

The hardware has been profiled incorrectly. Run Wave Profiler and delete the aud.ini file then reprofile the hardware.

Verify the driver setup on the driver tab.

Make sure the GNX3000 is set as the timing master for recording and playback.

Make sure Service Pack 1A or later (Windows XP®) has been installed. Click on the Advanced Tab and set the Buffer Size to 256.

Choose Start>Run and type MSCONFIG, click “OK” then click on the Startup Tab at the upper right of the window that opens. Uncheck all items listed, click “OK”. Then restart your computer. You can go back and choose those items again at a later time if necessary.

When I launch X-Edit,it can’t find the GNX3000.

Make sure your drivers are loaded correctly and that the USB cable is inserted securely.

See the section on USB Driver installation.

I hear doubling of the playback.

Input monitoring is probably active. Go to Options->Audio->Input Monitoring to disable.

Make sure the GNX3000 is the playback device, not your internal sound card.

My mic didn’t record.

Make sure mic signal routing is set to mic dry,mic rvb, ormic fx and thatUSB 1-2 orUSB 3-4 sources are set to one of the following :steroall,mono all,sum+dgtr,sum+mic,dgtr+mic, ordry mic.

My drums didn’t record.

Make sure steroall,mono all,drums st ordrums mn is selected as source forUSB 1-2 or USB 3-4.

My line inputs didn’t record.

Make sure line signal routing is set to line dry,line rvb, orline fx and thatUSB 1-2 orUSB 3-4 sources are set to one of the following :steroall,mono all,sum+dgtr,sum+mic ordry line.

Pro Tracks Plus won’t launch.

This was probably caused by interrupting the USB connection while in a previous Pro Tracks Plus session. You must reboot your system to fix this problem.

There is a conflict with your computer’s video card. By disabling the theater audio driver in the video card, the software should work.

I don’t hear playback from USB 3-4.

Playback is only available on USB 1-2.recording – like dry guitar, mic, drums,

USB 3-4is used for additional track etc.

I only get sound on one side of the recording.

Locate the Mono/Stereo box at the bottom of each track and make sure the mono tracks are set to mono and the stereo tracks are set to stereo.

When I export my song to a Wave file my CD burning program says the file type is not recognized as a Wave file.

• Make sure when you export the audio that you choose 16 bit not 24.

Using a Mac to receive audio stream from the GNX3000, the Mac USB input and output is visible, but so is the PC selection. Can these be removed?

The PC audio will work on a Mac. However some Mac applications can’t select more than one audio device and thus those applications must use the Mac device to record all 4 channels.
