Bringing together familiar controls with the latest in digital modeling technology and easy setup, the GSP1101 boasts two of DigiTech’s proprietary AudioDNA2™ DSP processors for unprecedented power and control.
The GSP1101 has been designed from the ground up to enhance and contour a player’s sounds while also taking steps to preserve the guitarists core tone from their rig through the included setup wizard and effects loop. The unit features control knobs including Gain, Bass, Mid-range, Treble and Amp Level for quick, easy tone shaping, as well as a front panel guitar input and headphone jack for easy access. 125 high-definition point-to-point models are included, ranging from amplifier and cabinet models to popular stompboxes and effects, including several studio-quality Lexicon™ reverbs, which can be combined and stored into 99 User presets or tweaked to tonal perfection from one of the 99 Factory presets. Guitarists will also appreciate the gapless preset changes which instantaneously call up the requested sound without cutting off trailing delay or reverb lines, for a professional performance when using multiple guitar tones.
Other features of the GSP1101 include a large LCD screen display, stereo effects loop, global EQ, chromatic tuner, balanced stereo XLR and 1/4″ outputs, an internal power supply, and USB computer connectivity with audio streaming and editor software, MIDI in and Thru and expression and footswitch inputs.
“Professionals asked and we listened,” stated Jason Lamb, Market Manager Multi-FX Products. “Professional guitarists define their core tone over years of playing and investments in gear. Professionals have stopped using rack-mount preamps due to the product’s inflexibility and altering of the guitar player’s sound. We at DigiTech designed the GSP1101 preamp to be integrated into the guitarist’s rig, giving the user the ability to use as much or as little of the product’s power while preserving their signature sound.”
The DigiTech GSP1101 Guitar Preamp/Processor is currently available for an MSRP of $699.95.
