Hi everyone,

I'm taking delivery of a GR-55/GK3 tomorrow... so what should I do first!  ;)

I've been reading the forums for a few weeks now, and while I'm tempted to rush straight into modding the 55 with an effects loop, I think I'll take it easy for the first few days. Seriously though, is there anything a newbie should do straight away to avoid a lot of heartache later?*


PS: Other than that, I'm a guitarist playing, and keyboard twiddling, ex-theatre pit musician who now teaches for a living.

*You can take it as read that I'll fit the GK3 pickup first! ;)

but the examples I see posted for the tone folks are searching for reference old, live video recordings from 20 years ago, not studio pristine recordings.

here is one more recording released in 2000 of Pat for a reference , gr-300 solo begins at 10.09 s : :

thats the sound i have not heard from users of gr-55, vg-88 nor gp-10 ( YET ) :)

I use an RME FF800 at 24 bit/48 khz at 064 samples wich in Cubase reports at 3 ms of latency (that’s the latency I was referring), although taking into account the DAWBENCH data would be 3.6 ms.

The typical latency of the A / D and D / A converters from what I've read from various sources  is normally around 1 ms or less.
I'm talking about output latency as we are referring to playing virtual instruments, so yes the latency real would be at 4,5 ms.

Anyway what I wanted to say is that the problem is not necessarily the windows systems but the card used in the comparison and if in the test you have made the  windows results are so bad ,the cause most likely will be on the Roland USB drivers themselves or at least need to be taken into account that probability.

Here is an observation: I think I can pretty much nail the GR-300 tone and sound of any Pat Metheny studio recording I have, but the examples I see posted for the tone folks are searching for reference old, live video recordings from 20 years ago, not studio pristine recordings.

Could it be what you are looking for is the sound a of GR-300 with some analog video saturation?

Maybe you should try a tad of overdrive, and roll off some of the top end.


I think that the video clips are just an easy way of posting on the forum ,
I'm looking for the sound I have on CD , LP and heard live,
(Some of the recordings are analogue others digital others a hybrid )
the sound he gets differs quite a bit from the one Frisell used on f.i. Bass Desires etc.

It seems to me that Metheny had/have a special twist on the sound,
that I haven't heard from anyone else. I'd say that I managed to emulate
98 % of the sound , but I'll try your suggestion anyway although
I believe that I already did.
And soon I'll see if the GP works better in that respect than the 99

Does anyone have a definite date for when we will be able to get our hands on a GP-10 in the UK?

It's incredibly frustrating reading all the user reports from the States. Have tried asking Roland UK a couple of times but without success. Not sure if that's because the don't want to tell anyone or they simply haven't got a clue (probably the latter). Andertons are quoting 31st July as availability date and if that's the case then surely the shipment should already have arrived in the country ready for onward shipping.

So come on Roland - how about a positive response?

Roland! If our 13 pin products don't sell well to metal guitarists this time, we are going to make our entire marketing team commit Seppuku!
Gibson! Satisfying the discriminating musical tastes of doctors, lawyers,and stockbrokers EVERYWHERE!
Carvin! No, honest, Joe Walsh WAS sober when he posed with one of our guitars!
Guild! Our electric guitars are played by top name artists such as... ah... let's see... what was the name of that guy with the mustache...?
Fender! Our "Master Craftsmen" for our relic guitars consists of our throwing each guitar into a pen with 12 puppies!
Eastman Guitars! It's EastMAN Guitars, not ...Wood, PLEASE!
Eastwood Guitars! Even WE couldn't get anybody to think a reproduction of Ovation's Deacon was cool!
Ovation! OK we admit it! The guy that designed the Deacon was suffering from kidney problems!
Peavey! Ahhh, heck, what do kids know about TONE anyway?
Peavey! You'll never hear OUR products being tied to the word "Vintage"!

First use of RC-300 with my banjo. For any bluegrass fans (probably not many!) But hey, any creative outlet will do! My cover of Earl Scruggs "Foggy Mountain Breakdown

This is great news, Gumtown - especially since I bought the GT-001 last week on the strength of your recommendation of the similar GT-100 for use with Bass. Can I be cheeky and ask how close you might be to completing this new editor? Even cheekier, will you be converting your GT-100 patches (especially the Bass ones!) to the new .tsl format and sharing them with us? Thanks for your great GT-10 editor, which I use all the time.
