"This is the work in progress picture. I'll take a finished picture on my next gig. I have to use 2 effects processors, which I'm not too happy about. The G-Force is fantastic, but I couldn't get it to absolutely everything I needed. I'm still using the Digitech IPS-33B for the complex harmonies."more
"Now I use a T.C. Electronic G-Force. I have nine presets, mostly delays and chorus. In every bank of sounds the first position is bone dry—no effects. We do a lot of improvisation as well, so I need some settings where I can engage individual effects, like a T.C. Nova that I can tap the tempo into for reverse delay, four different Burn Units with different drive settings, and an Electro-Harmonix POG for organ-type sounds."more

It's a pretty cool effects unit that is today 'getting on' a little. The major concern about the G-Force is the programmability is a bit of a pain compared to later equipment like the G-Major II which is also substantially less cost than the G-Force. I have used this unit for a number of years but never really mastered its idiosyncrasies all down to design really.
