Good delays, but practically unreliable. Buyer beware. Money wasted in the end.
I remember having used this unit back in 2017, during my university years when I wanted to upgrade from a Zoom multi-effects unit to a more pro-grade effects processor. During that time, Long and McQuade happened to have a used G-System on hand, so I figured why not give it a try? The chorus algorithms aren't too bad, and the delays are pretty damn articulate. This seemed like the perfect solution for me back then.
That was what I used to think, until I tried to integrate the relay switching for the Randall amp I used to have back then. Suddenly, the modulations and time-based effects stopped working. WTF? I checked and rechecked the connection, and yet everything just began to fall apart.
I've had high hopes that I'd be able to go far with the G-System, but the effect algorithms nowadays are nothing worth writing home about. The unit can't do modulate reverb, the delay times are limited, and the chorus algorithm is rather...mediocre at best.
Honestly, nowadays it's not worth spending your money on the G-System. There are far better options available in the market nowadays, some of which come at a cost of less money. Don't waste your time on the G-System. I did, and it was a huge mistake in the end.
Great live equipment, kinda oldie for actual standards...
The G System is a great piece of gear, built like a tank and with great options for sound. Not very friendly to use to use at first and it was designed in a time where digital distortion was not good in sound quality terms, therefore the loops to include different distortion pedals.
-Great design and sound, very customizable and built to last forever. -The loops are great not only for Dist pedals but any that might be needed. -The presets allow to avoid the tap dance. -Every effect built in can be adjusted from a computer thorugh the USB, also the presets can be backed up and restored.
-Effect chain can't be altered -When controlling amp channels from the unit, there's a minor delay between the change, not inmediate. -There's no amp simulation. -Pricy for actual products in the market.
Great gear for the way i use it./ sold it!
i use the clean/crunch and lead sounds from my The Valve 3/100 and the effects from the G System. I use it in the loop. That way it sounds best. Shortly i'm using a Banshee Talkbox which is great, but i can't connect it to the floor board (using the G system in the loop it has to be next to my amp due to cables etc). But i'll work that out.

G-System delivers in a package almost too good to be true. The best of the best effects, complete integration and optimization of your gear and total control over your effects and sounds pedal board. And, the added Massimo Mantovani mod essentially optimises the input-design and upgrades a number of components, which results in a super-transparent tone with a very snappy response, added punch and optimal tonal transparency.
