GT-1 Sneaky Amps?
« on: May 02, 2017, 03:08:50 PM »
I was having a quick squizz through the GT-1 amps and OD/DS types,
and noticed the Custom Amp and Custom OD/DS are not there.
Nor are 10 effects each in FX1 and FX2 that the GT-100/001 has.

Perhaps these might be accessible like with the Katana ??

I'm hoping this is true!

I'm sure some guy sitting in a control room at a power utility with some time at hand will have to check it up, otherwise he won't sleep properly  ;D
Got more gear than I need...and I like it!

Ok sure enough, I had a spare hour to conjure this up...
For all those GT-1 users who have always wondered if the GT-1 possesses the same "Sneaky features" like the Katana, here it is.
a reincarnation of the GT-100 editor, modified to shower the GT-1 with GT-100 command parameters in GT-1 type speak.

a windows version for a start anyway..

Fantastic and amazing!

No time to try today but I'm hoping for the weekend.
I met up again with my hometown teenage band from 35 years ago and my GT-1 will be handy as a reunion mini rig  :D

Gumtown, I'm on a Mac so can't see the editor yet, but how does this work?  Are those hidden Amps in there already, or is your editor doing something else?

Read the Help to get you in the ballpark

the Help file that gets installed is based upon the GR-55  - so there is much info in the Katana FX Floorboard HELP file that is not applicable to the katana

The GT-1 actually has all the GT-100 amps, so there are no extra 'sneaky' ones  except for the "custom" amps and 6 extra amp parameters.

other stuff to check is the OD/DS custom types too.

For both GT-1 and Katana ,  I'm hoping the Control Assign area can be expanded to support MIDI CC as Sources

I downloaded and installed Foorboard GT-1, but am getting "bad data" when it tries to do upload.  The GT-1 is connected and selected as midi device.  Version is 1.07, and Tone Studio works correctly....

I get "Error - System data was not transferred", and then Floorboard comes up with "bad data" in all the slots..

 Is there a switch I'm missing?

Update: It is connected; I hit "auto sync" and the GT-1 is messaging "Bulk Data Sending..."  Is that encouraging?  Is it sending everything?  How long does it take?

So...
Has anyone tried the software, and found any extra features not accessible from the gT-1 or Tone Studio interface?

Custom amps or Custom OD/DS maybe?
